Pornography

Album: Pornography (1982)
  • A hand in my mouth
    A life spills into the flowers
    We all look so perfect
    As we all fall down
    In an electric glare
    The old man cracks with age
    She found his last picture
    In the ashes of the fire
    An image of the queen
    Echoes round the sweating bed
    Sour yellow sounds inside my head

    In books
    And films
    And in life
    And in heaven
    The sound of slaughter
    As your body turns
    But it's too late
    But it's too late
    One more day like today and I'll kill you
    A desire for flesh

    And real blood
    I'll watch you drown in the shower
    Pushing my life through your open eyes
    I must fight this sickness
    Find a cure
    I must fight this sickness Writer/s: LAURENCE ANDREW TOLHURST, ROBERT JAMES SMITH, SIMON GALLUP

It was one of the most thrilling experiences in my life - and the last track made me shiver and sweat a lot...
