Red Star - Third Eye Blind

The police high beam froze her perfect face
In white glow for a while
The politburo's on high alert
And her name showed up on file
There's trouble with their war effort
And she's been speaking out
Checkpoint Charlie's radioing in
She's compromised in doubt
There's trouble with the war effort and she's crossed the party line
You were so pretty in the days you spoke your mind

You were so pretty oh
And you were so pretty oh oh oh
Well I don't know...

The files have been filled
The regime won't be undermined
You were so pretty in the days you spoke your mind

Quiet now don't make a sound
The system shut us down now we find each other in the underground
She had the voice once of the people
now she's timid as a mouse
I would kiss you on the mouth in a safe house

Cause you were so pretty oh
hiding out
hiding out
Cause you were so pretty oh
hiding out
hiding out
Walk on by
hiding out
hiding out
Walk on by
She's a red star
She's a red star

Tell me how did you let them in
We were silent secret agents
But the resistance is wearing thin
Dissent is now illegal
She must pay the consequence
In this thriller mystery baby
You are my suspense

Cause you were so pretty oh
hiding out
hiding out
Cause you were so pretty oh
hiding out
hiding out
Walk on by
hiding out
hiding out
Walk on by
She's a red star
She's a red star

You've come so far to back down now...
