lyrics

down on the metro line
line color maps are hard to follow
lost amongst the passengers
stand prometheus and io
fanning flames with credit cards
they won't get home until tomorrow
she will write a note for him
and he will fill it up with sorrow

nine vultures on the rail were sitting
patience is their field of study
he is drawing maps for her
while they are scoping out her body
she is keeping watch for him
but as he works she sees them nodding
his vision must be failing him
but she can see what they are plotting

mercury with brittle bones
is headed west for some big meeting
as he passes through the stop
he can't believe what he is seeing
io in a ragged dress
prometheus is barely breathing
just to be a gentleman
he goes and offers them a greeting

by the time he's said farewell
he's on the blower to the cops
it don't seem right but then again
this is the justice of the gods
prometheus and io hopping
subway trains like escape pods
weary and beleaguered convicts
no sir i don't like their odds

no sir i don't like their odds
