lyrics

You stopped me at the corner
to watch you play a game
asked me for a quarter
to let down your candy crane.
Lights danced on the concrete
around the arcade mart
Tell me of the chances
Steady hands aimed at the heart
Pull ‘em in, pull ‘em in
Play till you win
And when you let your crane claw fall,
all we knew of flesh and blood
reflected in the mirrored walls
was plastic die and plush
And then the machine sang its song
220 volts of victory
Another victim fallen pray
to plastic plush and candy
Pull ‘em in, pull ‘em in
Play till you win
So when you think of all the things
You ever hoped you’d be
Tell me did you ever dream
Of plastic plush and candy
Pull ‘em in, pull ‘em in
Play till you win
