I'm a window, you're the frame
I'm a gigolo, you're in pain
I'm the highlights, you're the game
If I'm a window, you're just the rain

Everybody get off the floor tonight
All right?

Screw the whistle, come be the train
Don't fuck the princess, do the maid
Don't make nothing just go get paid
If I'm a window, you're just the rain

Everybody get off the floor tonight
All right?

Diving in and out of trash
Down there something's got to match
Gone away boys, we're gone away, boys
The waitress she just brings us drinks
And tries to guess what we all think
But it's just noise, always it's just noise
And through the side door and in the lane
Somebody's sick but love's to blame
Gone away boys, we're gone away, boys

I'm a window, come be some wind
I'm a window, come break in

    I believe what he's trying to say is the person in question does all the dirty work so he can take the glory of the overall product. For example, "screw the whistle, come be the train" came be interpreted as meaning 'don't take the fancy, glorified cushy job, be the one that actually does something- be the reason for that job'. This point is enforced by the chorus of "I'm a window, you're just the rain" since the reason the window is there is because of things such as rain, wind and other outdoor elements.
