edenites

 

I'm bored, I'm so bored - and I have only just got up

take a cab down to the heart of town

looking for an answer or some love

see what I can see, acid babes and sunbed slaves

dream boys who see each other's dreams

the best of friends - they'll be your END

 

edenites rise when the sun goes down

edenites then take the car down town

edenites dance to the early hours

their love will send you to heaven

 

You weren't in the phone book

but I found you in the Book Of Revelations

a mean, preen scene teen

as groovy as a Garbo movie - no reservations

NOW - I can't get up

don't want to go

back to my school

I can't eat, or brush my teeth, or even BREATHE

the same air they do

 

edenites rise when the sun goes down

edenites then take the car down town

edenites dance to the early hours

their love will send you to heaven

edenites cry when the sunbeams rise

edenites lie when they say goodbye

edenites smile if you like their size

their kiss will send you to heaven

 

goodness gracious -

don't be scared of who you are

don't you worry 'bout your reputation

reputation won't go far

when you're looking for a NEW SENSATION

 

edenites rise when the sun goes down

edenites then take the car down town

edenites dance to the early hours

their love will send you to heaven

edenites cry when the sunbeams rise

edenites lie when they say goodbye

edenites smile if you like their size

their kiss will send you to heaven

 

 

CHEAP THRILLS & EXPENSIVE REGRETS

 

Nature was so generous

to you and now, you wear your clothes

to make it obvious

a boy who's

cute as the girl next door

having fun, well what else, son, could your life be for?

 

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

 

One sniff and you're not so stiff

is it true that if, you don't get off your head, you feel you can't fit in?

Nantwich

would flinch

at how you live

even I wonder if

you find the time for love

(am I too sensitive? )

 

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

 

Who needs education

when you draw such adoration

why bleach Ibiza-tanned skin white?

Just remember, don't make passes

at lovers of members of the criminal classes

and you should survive another night

He combs his hair in the slivers

of his many broken mirrors

then he's out to shame himself anew

(can I come, too?)

 

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

More cheap thrills & expensive regrets

 

 

KING OF THE FAIRGROUND SWING

 

The fair pulled in

at 5am

I was drawn by the smell

and the sound - and the sheer vulgarity

he's by the swing

at ease in his tattooed skin

he pins down a girl with a grin

and she falls

spontaneously pregnant

 

He's the king of the fairground swing

gives free rides to the girls he fancies

he's the king of the fairground swing

 

A blissed-out, slack-jawed son

O Levels has he none

but he knows more than you or your dad ever will

about life and love

... and bodily fluids

the speaker on the House of Fun

grinds tunes that even the un-

hippest milkman can whistle with ease

and they blend

with the SCREAMS

 

He's the king of the fairground swing

gives free rides to the girls he fancies

see the king of the fairground swing

he's the king of the fairground swing

takes them back to his mobile chalet

he's the king of the fairground swing

 

but I was born out of joint with the world

and I feel

so desperate, so separate, from every single thing that breathes

so when your foul fairground

leaves this drowsy town

won't you

PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME

PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME

PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME

PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME PLEASE TAKE ME

PLEASE

TAKE

ME
