lyrics

do you want me for my skin?
do you want me for my eyes?

do you hunt me for the weapon in my pants, forbidden fruit you’ll never have?

do I accentuate your manhood?
do I keep you up at night?

would you blind the statue of liberty just to get your hands around me?

if you stop me frisk me right
deny me justice take my rights
hold me hostage as your secret in the night
get to know me better, change my life.

do you trust me for my suit?
do you hate me for my hair?

do you respect the way the badge shines bright in the amber glow of streetlights?

do you want to go downtown?
(well) do you know my name by now?

does it matter?
who will miss you when you go?

this city’s for the rich not poor.

if you stop me frisk me right
deny me justice take my rights
hold me hostage as your secret in the night
get to know me better, change my life.

get to know me better. Better.
get to know me better.
(oh) scrutinize me.
get to know me better.
scru-tinize me.
get to know me better!

if you stop me frisk me right
deny me justice take my rights
hold me hostage as your secret in the night.
get to know me better, Take my…

(Yurie? Charlie??
Yurie? Charlie??
hello?….)
