HUNGER STRIKES

you...you and i...we meet at motel 6 o'clock
the news begins
you...you and i...there's 2 cars in the parkin lot
the lights r dim

pick it up

you...you and i...refuse t stop and goin'
won't save anything
you...you and i...
the room is rainin love lie down here
hold me

pick it up
hunger strikes
i say - work
pick up the broken pieces...

you..you and i...we never meant t hurt the ones
we started with
you...you and i...it's not the conversation
it's this place wr in

pick it up
hunger strikes
i say work
pick up the broken pieces...

is it love?
is it really love?
