Darkness dangerous for women
For we who want to keep our souls
Out there alone
Nothing but our bodies
To pay for a room
And a few gallons of gas
To the next town
How to stay pure?
Starving always worked
As a money-saver for
Every hungry woman
No, we are no sexy
Midnight Rider
No dangerous outlaw persona
A guise for men only
Stay safe, women
For us, our song is
Not gonna let them catch
The Evening Hider
Stay safe and hide
When the sun begins to glide
Below the perspective point
Of the far horizon
Always the same
Whether Maiden, Mother or Crone
Aging the day we're born
Heading where?
Heaven, hell, oblivion?
Unknown to those
Who had faith shoved down the throat
Be a good girl and
You will be loved
Might as well be walking
Down a dark midnight alley
With no lantern
Waving bouquets of dollars
Teetering on designer knock-off stilettos
Skin hid in a bikini

Stay safe, women
Stay safe, all you women out there
Don't walk the streets at night
Use your last silver dollar
To buy the secret of beauty
Handful of mirror
Reflecting you
So be true to body and mind
And try to remember
Though it may not seem so now
And you'll not believe how
There is someone
Somewhere
Who loves you…
