I Can't Take You Away

The way you stumble through crowds when you run from the gunman.
The way you wear the big pants cinched up with a belt.
The way you drive the bus without knowing which pedal is the brake.
The way the alley is too narrow to turn around.

You can play the blues
On your plastic flutophone.
Wander around the airport.
Peek out at the parking lot.
But if you go outside
Security will have you disqualified.
