      About "The Passenger"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "The Passenger"

      A telepathic line to a shadow
      On the wall, just a passenger and that is all
      Taking off on a midnight flight
      The airline ticket in his hand held tight

      Polar route, destination: oblivion
      Can I take that little box that you're sitting on, sir?
      No, that's alright, miss, I'll hold it right here
      I'll need it later on when I go up in the air
      And one false move will give it all away
      Just one false move will give it all away

      Long distance calling everyone around
      Bad connection, better let the operator dial
      I feel the speed of the traffic zoom
      A train in a tunnel and an empty room

      Time for take-off, extinguish all cigarettes
      In emergency, you know where the exits are
      His hands are white on the box he grips
      No one knows but it's their last trip
      And one false move will give it all away
      Just one false move will give it all away

      Long distance calling everyone around
      Bad connection, better let the operator dial
      Taking off on a midnight flight
      The airline ticket in his hand held tight
      And one false move will give it all away
      Just one false move will give it all away
