Verse 1 (with Verse Riff):
"She nursed him there overnight
Wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay
What to say, what to say
Soon she was down, soon he was low
At a quarter past, holy no
She had to turn around"

Verse 2 (with Verse Riff):
"And to this day she's glided on
Always home but so far away
Like a word misplaced, nothing said, what a waste
When she had contact with the conflict
There was meaning but she sold him to the state
She had to turn around"
Chorus 2:
"When she couldn't hold, she folded
A dissident is here
Escape is never the safest path
A dissident, a dissident is here"
Repeat 4 times:
[G] [F#5] [Fadd9] [G]
