Pork Soda

Album: How to Be a Human Being (2016)
  • Somewhere in South End when you were fun
    You took my hand and you made me run
    Up past the prison to the seafront
    You climbed the cliff edge and took the plunge

    Why can't we laugh now like we did then?
    How come I see you and ache instead?
    How come you only look pleased in bed?
    Let's climb the cliff edge and jump again

    Pineapples are in my head
    (Pineapples are in my head)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain dead
    (Got nobody 'cause I'm brain dead)

    I know I'm no genius of love
    Don't know that I belong
    Maybe I'm deaf and dumb
    Maybe I'm just a bum
    Maybe I never love
    Don't you go psycho 'cause
    I want you for the world
    I want you all the time
    Stop

    Pineapples are in my head
    (When you were fun)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead
    (You made me run)
    Pineapples are in my head
    (To the seafront)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead
    (You took the plunge)

    Five thousand footsteps in your wet dress
    Back to the house with your arms 'round my neck
    We drank pork soda with tangled legs
    I won't forget how you looked at me then

    I know I'm no sweet prince of love
    Those times that we got drunk
    Maybe Jamaica rum
    Maybe some Jonnie Dub
    Maybe you still think of us
    Phone buzz, and still I jump
    Why don't I say it then?
    I want you all the time

    Why can't we laugh now like we did then?
    How come I see you and ache instead?
    How come you only look pleased in bed?
    Let's climb the cliff edge and jump again

    Pineapples are in my head
    (Pineapples are in my head)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead
    (Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead)
    Pineapples are in my head
    (Pineapples are in my head)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead
    (Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead)
    Pineapples are in my head
    (Pineapples are in my head)
    Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead
    (Got nobody 'cause I'm brain-dead) Writer/s: DAVID ALGERNON BAYLEY
