  Sad Cunt Lyrics  
 
 
 
Such a sad boy
With your lost voice
In a metal box
Mailed second class
Into the twenty first century
With a lackluster cast of a b-movie
Got no mouth but you need to scream
You're sad
You're sad

Stir it up
From the permafrost
Your in the Kellogg's box
Meet the stepford kid

Into the twenty first century
Got no mouth but you need to scream

You're sad boy

If you wanna look for heaven
You're gonna have to die first
Watch your mother or your lover
Meet the dildo kid

Into the twenty first century
Got no mouth but you need to scream

You're sad boy
Sad boy

With your lost voice
In a metal box
Mailed second class

You're sad boy
Sad boy
Sad

  Eraser Cut Advert - Click Here For Bigger ScanHey! Siouxsie's back! She was always quite the headcase, what with her 'Hong Kong Garden' and the scary 'Playground Twist,' not to mention a half-hour reading of 'The Lord's Prayer.' The Creatures, her post-Banshees outfit with drummer Budgie, is an outlet, judging by this, of their darkest and angular musical needs. Dark? Oh, I should coco. The lead track has more scary bells on it than both Ice-T and Black Sabbath on National Scary Bell Day.

  Pinned Down Lyrics  
 
 
 

I can't think, can't speak
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

Pinned down without a crown
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

The same words flesh eating birds
You always like to bring it down
You want to own it you want to know it
You're only safe when it's pinned down

A bug stuck on a pin
You love to see it struggling
She's not a pet to be tamed
Think you can bring her will to heel

Your baying hounds head to the ground
You always like to bring it down
You can't take it can only break it
You'll be the one that's left pinned down

Pinned down without a crown
Are you talking to me?
I drift off with such ease
I'm not listening you see

Eat these words these praying birds
Now I'm the one that lets you down
Your pinned down and you've found
It makes on difference to me

  Guillotine Lyrics  
 
 
 

Buckle and grind
Your bubbling mind
Can't shut it down
It keeps running around
No friend of mine
You are no friend of mine
Well you know we could've gone far
I'm the one left alarmed
Tumbling blind
Double turbine
How long consciousness
Disembodied wreckage
I'm paralysed
With no friend of mine
Well you know you wear
Well you know if you tear
Buckle and grind
Your bubbling mind
Can't shut it down
A life it has found
Want calm want friend want end
Wanna Armageddon for
Tumbling blind
Trouble in mind
Can't shut it down
It keeps running around
I wanna know I wasn't there
I wanna hear
Is there anybody out there
Limbs over there
They're not mine
They're not mine
Buckle and grind
With your bubbling mind
Trouble 
You're in trouble

  Slipping Away Lyrics  
 
 
 

Pale against the sun
My world is slowly dissolving
Ground beneath my feet
It's melting away

Black falls into black
I'm just a shadow of my former self
Losing gravity
Don't you know I'm slipping away

Fix your stare, load your eyes
Now I'm shot down in flames
Fix your stare, load your eyes
All in the firmament flares

A sea of melting clocks
The tick tock - time dripping away
All that was for real is just a memory
Starting to fade

All that was for real
Just a memory slipping away
It's slipping away

Thank you for
The last few days
I know we'll meet again and soon
It's written in the stars
Written in my hand
Please take care
Please take all my love
Til we meet again
I hope it's soon

Apartment door
Is left ajar
An eye in the glass
On the parquet floor

All the guests 
Have left and gone
But I'm still here
On the 2nd floor

2nd floor
And I still want more
2nd floor

Aftermath
In a amber glow
A vodka bath
For this shipwrecked soul

Seconds fly
As the years flow by
But I don't care
I'm on the 2nd floor

2nd floor
And I still want more
2nd floor

Coming back for more

Why fear death
When death never hurt no one
2nd floor

  Inspiration/Influence/Band Comment:  
     
  SIOUXSIE:  "It's when you still want more, when you want the party to continue and it's beyond being sensible.  I remember times when I was the one person left in a place, and the euphoria that goes along with it.  2nd Floor was my idea of what a private drinking bar would be, that was open all the time.  There's something very religious about bars.  They're like altars.  The lighting.  The colour of the bottles.  Having a drink.  It's like Santa's Grotto time."  Source: Diva 04/99.  
     

 


     
  Turn It On Lyrics  
 
 
 

All you rely on
Here come the storms
To shatter control
From the war lords

Can you feel the power
It turns me on
Unpredictable
Turn it on
Feel the power
Invincible

Wont play their games
But we're a playful thing
Everything to risk
Everything to sink

Gonna change what I can
Accept what I can't
Because I've got the power
Chameleon

Turn it on
Feel the power
Unpredictable
Feel the power
Untamable
Turn it on

Hurricane and earthquake
Monsoon and tidal wave
here come the storms
They really turn me on

Unpredictable
Turn it on
It turns me on
Turn it on
Omnipotent
Unpredictable
Untamable
Invincible
Chameleon
Turn it on

Here it comes again
Taste of jagged glass and rusty can
There are just black holes
Where the stars would be watching
Just black holes
Where the stars should have been

Plumes of dirt
Caress a urine coloured sun
Swarms of angels
Come to kill your sons
And there's nothing but black holes
Where the stars should've been
Nothing but black holes
Where the stars would be watching

Oh those strange Argonauts
Digging again in your pit
Cover them in menstrual stream
cover them black gold
Plunge them into ingots
Ripping through your menstrual stream
Rising up taste of rusted can
And jagged glass feeling again
Here it comes again

Hordes of locust blot out your sun
Raining down rain on everyone
Poor little rich thing
Poor little bleeding heart
Poor little misunderstood
Piss on it I'm sick of it
Enough is enough
I wanna fuck it up

Out of sync out of phase
Out of sight out of spite
Raining down raining everyone
Poor little rich thing
Poor little bleeding heart
Poor little misunderstood
Piss on it I'm sick of it

Here it comes again
Taste of jagged glass and rusty can
There are just black holes
Where the stars should've been
Just black holes
Where the stars would be watching

  Description:  
  The band:  Siouxsie Sioux, Budgie.  An underwater theme saturated in blues, purples and golds.  Through a haze of bubbles, Siouxsie and Budgie submerse themselves in deep water and in a continuation of the theme are filmed from behind cylindular lamps of rippling liquid.  The video has a dark, claustrophobic feel and the song itself is dedicated to friend and colleague Billy MacKenzie who had recently taken is own life.

I heard the news today
Billy's gone away
Left us all for good
No one understood

You only had to say
I would understand
You only had to say
Whatever come what may

I was feeling low
You called and you were too
We'd meet Saturday
It happened on Wednesday

You only had to say it's sad
I would understand

I don't want you brave
A truce we made today
If you're feeling sad
On me you can depend

You only have to say

  Broken Lyrics  
 
 
 

Broken...
Why concede?
Broken...
Crumbling with grief
Broken...
I don't believe...you're broken

You've given up turned it in on yourself now
Thought it was out but outward in
What's the point you can't be bothered
To be consoled, to be absolved

You're broken...
Fingers bleed
Broken
Porcelain in pieces
Broken
Your head between my knees
Broken...

You've given up turned it in on yourself now
Thought it was out but outward in
What's the point you can't be bothered
To be consoled, to be absolved

You're broken
So broken
Broken
So broken

By a cowardly embrace
It was sealed with a kiss
By a charmer's face

Ahhh...

A dissonance left scarred but tattered
About your face your haunted face
And in disgust you turn dejected
Can't be consoled...can't be absolved

You're broken
Crippled in a heap
Broken
With dreams that you won't sleep
Broken
Beggar in the street

Broken
A dissonance left scarred but tattered
Broken
About your face, your haunted face
Broken
And in disgust you turn dejected
Broken
Can't be consoled...can't be absolved
You're broken
Why concede?
Broken
I don't believe
Broken
Crippled in a heap
You're broken

Broken...Broken...Broken...Broken...

  All She Could Ask For Lyrics  
 
 
 

All she could ask for
How could she want more?
Down by the river her body lies cold
Dream me an empire
Dream me ocean floor
Dream me an alibi
Dream me her once more
In her eyes my reflection
In her eyes rivers dance
In her eyes mute devotion
In her eyes my defense 
Glistening Sculpture
Life statuesque
The sights overwhelm me
I catch my breath
Only the river, my only home
I'll die beside her
I'm going home
Down by the river her body lies cold
All she could ask for
How could she want more?
