From the recording Clutching At Straws

Lyrics

And so she left me Grief And there she was Standing Evening coffee in the doorway Naked as a jaybird And she shook me And I took her to the bedroom Where I felt the veil drop from my vision From the telly From the radio From the digital intrusion From the zero to the one But she raised my amazement And she might have been kinder Might have been lukewarm, at least Night of the sidewinder Night of the fatal bite Night of the dark releasing From the hell of a dreamscape video To the electrical infusion A taste of the poison Between her double-dealin’ teeth Where she shimmy Pin me down beneath Where I felt the alchemy Of a nervous system Oh — she shut me out She shut me down Fangs Looked in her eyes And then I kissed ‘em From the six To the nine To the side From the one to the great divide Fully intact to open wide
