Creases in your white dress
Bruises on your bare skin
Looks like another fine mess
You've got yourself into

What's the matter with you?
Has the cat got your tongue?
Well if you don't like the beat
Then don't play with the drum

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

On a rain-slicked avenue
Long shadows in the night
Take off your spike-heeled shoes
You've go to run for your life

Razor blade in your pocket
From an ex-marine
Makes you speed like a rocket
Ooh, it cuts so clean

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

How come you're payin' for borrowed time
Starin' out into space?
Bad boys and cold comfort
And a smacked-up face

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

Who's that walking, walking behind you, who's that
talking, talking about you
Who's that walking, walking with you Maxine…?
