This is one of the few Cure songs I can honestly say I have no idea what he is talking about. haha The only thing I can come up with is that he is talking about a phony person perhaps? I do know from the Summer Cure Tour this has been completely reborn and I love it.
Well this is going to make a great first post...oh dear...It's just that this song stinks of pornography to me - I know it was written while Robert was indulging in heaps of acid and porn and lyrics like
'Why do you do it do you act like you?
Don't fight, go red and blue and black and white. Sell this sell this or leave it senseless like a suck on a gun?
Disappear everywhere and watch me, pull my lips apart. Exploit inspire encourage, be responsible for this. Ha ha.
I don't think. I make use of all this time. Oh kill me, kiss me once and then we'll throw it away, '
is very Buroughs - esque cut n paste acidspeak; it's poetry as opposed to journalism - a poetic take on porn indulgence and the man's loss of himself in this exploitation - of man? of woman? that's a debate I don't want to get into
