This song represents homelessness in America. A woman is wandering the streets, looking for help, because she is hurt. One man ignores her and continues to keep walking away. A second man sees that she's been crying, and she's somehow walking, even though her feet hurt. A third person observes that the wrinkles on her face show that she's seen it all. This song could also represent the late 80s downward spiral of communism in Russia. Listed as a "protest" song.
