Take a ride / Take me aside / Push me up to the life /?Down to Prag /
 We go far /?I guess we'll crash slowly into tar
When I come home from the trench /?I telephone my friends / We take a car /
 We may go far / I guess we'll crash slowly into tar
Strangers will come /?Hold on...
And late at night / we go to clubs /?where no one else is dressed up /
 And when it's done / I must return /?I guess we'll crash slowly into tar
