lyrics

riding on the assembly line


crossing the poor men’s vacation residence
on my way to the citizen service center
I can see a wedding party next to the city hall
but who’s the bride and who’s the broom, I don’t see at all

two plastic tables, a cardboard box, some bottles of fizzy wine
everything a wedding party just needs to feel fine
eventually as I have reached my final destination
I make my way just straight ahead, past the information

you can feel you’re looked all over, all over from head to toe
and I just can’t exonerate myself from doing so
and I just can’t exonerate myself from doing so

riding on the assembly line
people stop and go and pass me by
riding on the assembly line
people stop and go and pass me by

a young girl with a headscarf on accompanied by her
guiding husband taking place in front of a spare counter
not to the pleasure of jealous eyes who blame you for your nature
why can’t we just abandon those thoughts on our creature

a few seats next to me on the right, I can see a hairless woman
and lots of wondering pitiful eyes asking for the reason
the display puts the waiting time for me now to an end
while all the other eyes complain about their remaining time to spend

chorus

glances follow me get up, they walk me through the door
my way home leads me to the city’s local park once more
where I’m asked for a cigarette, stared at by thirsty eyes
takin’ a break from looking at another broom and bride
