Take her arms and hold her down...
Until she stops kicking
Take her arms and hold her down...
Until she she stops moving

And they don't know her
But what the fuck
They've got nothing else they can do
And they've no reason
But still they come

And I
Would have a hard time facing you
This crime
The shame of what a man can do

Take her arms and hold her down...
Until she stops screaming
Take her arms and hold her down...
Until she stops breathing

And they don't know her
But what the fuck
They've got nothing else they can do
And they've no reason
But still they come

And I
Would have a hard time facing you
This crime
The shame of what a man can do

Take the night back
All they've stolen
All we took from you

It is a little disturbing. When I bought this CD back in early 90's the sales clerk told me "...BTW, track five is an ANTI-rape song". When I listened the first time, I could see why he was compelled to say that.

 
 

Right. When it first came out, the band said in interviews that the song was inspired by a real-life attack of a good friend of theirs—-and so they channeled their horror over what men are capable of into this song. It's reflected in the line:

Very disturbing.
I saw Glenn Phillips at Joe's Pub in NYC a few years ago and his daughters were in the audience.  He said he always dedicates a song to his wife so I called out for this song....I thought it was funny--- Glenn, not so much.  Guess he doesn't have a good a sense of humor as I thought.
