Rapejacket

Tom's in the bathroom
Trying to end his life
Sue's in the kitchen
Hiding all the knives

She always says
It's the end of it that counts
Don't try so hard
To explain the way you feel

Try it on
You wear it easy
Try it on
You wear it easy

Late in the day
Tom can still be found
Listening to music
The Velvet Underground

He thinks it's a shame
That he can't be like Lou, or someone good,
With the power to explain
How he fights for control

Try it on
You wear it easy
Try it on
You wear it easy

All through the night
Tom's been walking 'round
Found someone's jacket
Lying on the ground

Try it on
You wear it easy
Try it on
You wear it easy
Try it on
You wear it easy

Rapejacket (X2)
Rape


Basketcase


Girl had a baby
And she gave it to the world
World didn't want to take
The baby from the girl

Float on
Waterway
Your time
Never changed
Your life
'Round again
You fly
Far away

Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart

So, in the reeds beside
The river bed she lay
Give her to the river
Let the water show the way

Float on
Waterway
Your time
Never changed
Your life
'Round again
You fly
Far away

Time will never destroy your heart
Time can never destroy your heart

Float on
Waterway
Your time
Never changed
Your life
'Round again
You fly
Far away

Time can never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart
Time can never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart


Mall Monarchy


His wife's in a nightdress
As Ethan g
rabs his chest

You were the brightest of them all
For you designed the shopping mall
They keep us clothed and entertained
From Baltimore to Golders Green
(Note: Damien says - 'In case you don't already know, Golders Green is beside Highgate Hill (mentioned in Ariadne) in London')

Born hungry
Got wounded
Iwo Jima (Damien - No, I haven't gone mad. It was a battle)
In '45

You were the brightest of them all
When you designed the shopping mall
to keep us clothed and entertained
From Baltimore the going's great

And so we called you here today
To send a monarch on his way
It's a really vulgar plan
With the ashes laid to rest

In the black car
White roses
And the tomb stones
They're all the same

And so we called you here today
To send our monarch on his way
It's a real vulgar plan
With the ashes laid to rest


Ariadne


My dog and I
We fly a train
From highgate hill
To Bishops Gate

Old somethings
While we are traveling
Precious things
Are what we hunt and
You walked in
With Ariadne
You walked in
You saw I was

No longer young
Just rag and bone
But I can walk
This world alone

You walked in
With Ariadne
You walked in
Street is cold and
Hand in hand
With Ariadne
You walked in
I see you are

Alive again
You seem to say
That everything
Has gone away
You walked in
With Ariadne
You walked in
Street is cold and
Hand in hand
With Ariadne
You walked in
You saw I was

Bells will ring
When we are travelling
Precious things
Are what we brought
Hand in hand
With Ariadne
You walked in
You saw I was
Hand in hand
With Ariadne
You walked in
The street is cold
Hand in hand
With Ariadne
You walked in
You saw I was


Air-Raid For The Neighbours


And these old folks live
In a street where
Noise is made
I'm gonna never get a chance to know
How or why
They know it's gonna keep them up all night

You'd be safer
In the cellar
Underground, my dear
We will come out
In the morning
When we know it's clear

Seventeen is the number
All the house where drums are beating
It's a trip for the ravers
And an air-raid for the neighbours

Sometimes years collide
In a tired and
Ageing mind
I'm going to Tar to see the ??? burst
Days desolve
And come back, spill into the cracks below

You'd be safer
In the cellar
Underground, my dear
We will come out
In the morning
When we know it's clear

Seventeen is the number
All the house where drums are beating
It's a trip for the ravers
And an air-raid for the neighbours

Yancy Dangerfields Delusions

I let a conversation start in my brain
I saw a roumer start to spread like a stain
We're gonna do it, my friend and me
We're going to steal the twenty-first century

Oh tell me Yancy what you think it'd be like
We'll get some buckets and some dynamite
And then we'll set it, and we'll stand clear
And use the buckets for collecting the years

Twenty years that's what we'll get
Such a thing hasn't happened yet
Calm yourself, nothing's wrong
Yancy sing a merry song

I go t the dynamite and he got the rest
We'll meet up later to decide on the test
He didn't do it, he brought a truck
I realised we had run out of luck

We put some dynamite just here by the wall
In twenty seconds we would see decades fall
It didn't happen, the fuse was wet
I haven't figured out just what happens yet

Twenty years that's what we'll get
Such a thing hasn't happened yet
Calm yourself, nothing's wrong
Yancy sing a merry song

I need some ice, need some calmer dreams
Need some help, need some sympathy
I need some friends, some reality
I need some love, some security
I need some time, need some certainty
Need some pets, need some servicing

I think I'm flying in the middle of the sky
I think I'm flying in the middle of the sky
I think I'm flying, I think I fly
That is to say I think I'm flying in the sky

Twenty years is what you'll get
Such a thing hasn't happened yet
Calm yourself, nothing's wrong
Yancy sing us a merry song

Don't look at me
Don't worry
I wear my cold
Dumb leathers
At Seventeen
Never let go
I got just one (?) And get the techno (?) I fly around
A forest
I could make you die
In butter


Lovers


Love, love, lovers
Make like lovers
Love, love, lovers
Soft, soap lovers

I wanna try
I wanna try

Danger!
Danger!
Love, love, lovers
Clean cheese lovers
Love, love, lovers
Beat like lovers

I wanna try
I wanna try

Everybody wants to know
Whos lover are we
Everybody wants to know
Whos lover

Oh lover

Danger!
Danger!
Danger!
Danger!


I Am John's Brain


Brain - lover of the world
Brain - separates the dark
Brain - fount of all your fear
Brain - how'd you get us here?
Brain - comfort in the night
Brain - engineer of flight
Brain - believe that you are right
Brain - twinkle-toes tonight
Brain - more than a machine
Brain - sometimes you are mean
Brain - lets me go to sleep
Brain - through the eyelids peep
Brain - Separates the girls
Brain - Scans the road ahead
Brain - Inventing enemies
Brain - Dying by degrees
Brain - Make the children weep
Brain - Millions are asleep
Brain - Elevated creep
Brain - Feel addiction seep
Brain - Harbour of the dead
Brain - Nestled in your head
Brain - Remembers what she said
Brain - Again, again, again

Domestique


After noon
Things to do
Got to clean
What a scene
In my house
In my home
Squeaky clean
Disinfect
Every thing
What is that?

Run around
Everything
Underneath
Breeding now
See them breed
I can't see
I can't see
Disinfect
Everything
Look at that!

It's in the kitchen
It's in the water
My kids will get it

Tiny things
Colonies
In the bleach
I can't stop
I can't stop
Grow and grow
Taking over
Got to win
Got to clean
Got to kill

It's in the kitchen
It's in the water
My kids will get it
My kids will get it

It's in the kitchen
It's in the oven
It's in the water
It's so increasing
It's in the washpan
It's in the u-bend
It's in the bathroom
My kids will get it (X5)


Oh My Fool Life


And so I came to this world
And then I blew it

I bought a puzzle to play, I couldn't do it
I told a joke to my friends, but they all knew it
I tried to laugh my way out, but they saw through it
I think I'll bury my head and just get through it

On my fool life
On my fool life

I saw a robbery once, I was a witness
Somebody called the police, they said who did this
And I described them so well, in about a minute
And they looked at me then, you'd think I did it

On my fool life
On my fool life

I had a friend in distress, he was a good friend
It wasn't happening between him and his girlfriend
I tried to sort it all out and talk to her friend
But when I got to her house I found I'd no friends

On my fool life
On my fool life

On my
On my
On my

I got a linguaphone course, so I could learn French
I went to Calais one day, so I could speak French
I got confused at the dock in the confusion
"Welkom meneer rechts rijden in Hoek Van Holland"

On my fool life
On my fool life
On my fool life
On my fool life
On my fool life


Jean Could Be Wrong


"Oh no!" said Jean
The world hurt me

They tied
Her down
They nailed
Her feet
To the pain in her song
But then Jean could be wrong

"I've proof" she says
from what I read

she says
she knows
And draws
Her scars
From some other hand
But then Jean could be wrong
