Hedwig and the Angry Inch

...all border crossings
are reported to be wide open,
and thousands are flooding

into the western half
of the city

to celebrate
their newfound freedom.

The Berlin Wall
has fallen,

and the world
will never be the same.

The Germans
are a patient people,

and good things come
to those who wait.

On nights
Like this
When the world's
a bit amiss

And the lights go down
across the trailer park

I get down
I feel had
Feel on the verge
of going mad

Then it's time
to punch the clock

I put on some makeup
Turn on the tape deck
And put the wig
back on my head

Suddenly I'm Miss Midwest
Midnight checkout queen

Until I head home
And I put myself
to bed

I look back
on where I'm from
