Lyrics (fan transcription):
you are so sweet
dancing to the beat
there's a meat market down the street
the boys and the girls watch each other eat

you are so sweet, so sweet
dancing and moving to that beat, that beat
there's a meat market down the street
the boys and the girls watch each other eat...
when they really just want to watch each other sleep

I went walking through the city like a drunk but not
with my slip showing a little, like a drunk but not
and I am one of your people, but the cars don't stop...

it's been a long time since before I've been touched
now I'm getting touched all the time
and it's only of matter of whom
and it's only a matter of when

an addiction to hands and feet
there's a meat market down the street
the boys and girls watch each other eat
when they really just want to watch each other sleep...

they want to watch, to watch each other...sleep...

[alt]
they want to be watched, they want to be washed
they want to be touched, to touch each other
they want to sleep, they want to be slept
