Album: Hiss Spun (2017)

  • Dead eyes, I only call you when you're in my dreams
    Died too young, the culling then, it was obscene
    I am depleted by love
    I am depleted by love

    I’ll never tell the secrets of my family
    Bled out, a cult of anonymity
    The kettle is wheeling, my love
    Riding on the back of a hell they caused

    One ear to the ground
    One eye on the room
    My tongue on your pulse
    My finger in your wound

    Sweet dead eyes, I long to hear you again
    Sweet dead eyes, I long to see your face
    Sweet dead eyes, I long for that illustrious hiss
    Sweet dead eyes, I know you feel it

    No turning back
    Only God knows what we're headed for
    The flowers bloom, the sun rises

    Flux, hiss, welt, groan
    Flux, hiss, welt, groan
    Flux, hiss, welt, groan
    Flux, hiss, welt, groan
    Flux, hiss, welt, groan
    Flux, hiss, welt, groan Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
