The Sweetest Chill – Siouxie And The Banshees

Feeling you your cadence seeps Whispering in flashback the spectres of your memories Fall in glistening showers such a tender descent Intones this haunting lament The sweetest chill Fearing you but calling your name Icy breath encases my skin Fingers like a fountain of needles Shiver along my spine And rain down so divine The […]

Trophy – Siouxie And The Banshees

Severin: bass Budgie: drums McGeoch: guitar, ellaphone.

The Last Beat Of My Heart – Siouxie And The Banshees

My memory stirred When time wreathed a rose A garland of shame Its thorn my only delight War torn, afraid to speak We dare to breathe Majestic Imperial A bridge of sighs Solitude sails In a wave of forgiveness On angels’ wings Reach out your hands Don’t turn your back Don’t walk away How in […]

Burn-up – Siouxie And The Banshees

The killing streak ascends sun kissed And the firestarter from within Pokes out from fever blistered grin King Salamander that’s his name A desert maker that’s his aim The benign cremator, branding iron in his hand Eager and willing to torch the land All fire and brimstone This jack-o-lantern He likes to watch the buildings […]

The Killing Jar – Siouxie And The Banshees

Seeks his sustenance Down in the blue, midnight flare A glass hand cuts through the water Scything into his twisted roots Then from his eyes Spring fireflies Breathing life Into a roaring disguise Needles and sins, sins and needles He’s gasping for air In the wishing well Dust to rust, ashes to gashes Hand around […]

Metal Postcard (Mittageisen) – Siouxie And The Banshees

Reunion begins with a glass of mercury whilst television flickers for (with) another news bulletin flints light up the eyes of the seated family Chorus: “;Metal is tough, metal will sheen Metal won’t rust when oiled and cleaned Metal is tough, metal will sheen Metal will rule in my masterscheme”; With a clockwork jerk pluck […]

Hybrid – Siouxie And The Banshees

Severin: bass Budgie: drums McGeoch: guitar, sax It’s a hybrid of me-I’m a hybrid of he You’re a misfit of me-I’m a misfit of you…in limbo Carbon copies run blue-a reminder for you but they’re only skin deep crumpled shells in a heap Marked cheap Surrogate heads of a no-no domain shoulders form rows to […]

Peek-a-Boo – Siouxie And The Banshees

Scarecrow – Siouxie And The Banshees

Until it’s time for us to speak Whilst others here are sleeping sound I’ll slip away by floorboard creak Upon the hill he’ll hear my secrets Shock the colours to bleach inside Whilst others there are sleeping sound Just we two will confide Listen to his body moan Make a wish and send us home […]

This Unrest – Siouxie And The Banshees

Disconnected thoughts jangle in a mess This unrest crucifies my chest Without anaesthetic it cuts Through tumorous flesh This unrest beats out my breath……. This unrest beats in my chest Discordant limbs watch unimpressed At the aimless walk the mindless talk The pictures leap out and dance for me The laugh at me As your […]

Ornaments Of Gold – Siouxie And The Banshees

And ornaments of gold Silver moonbeams dance in fountains Below shining citadels Surrounded by silver gates ascending silver stairs Eureka on angelic prayer wafts in and scents the air With ornaments of gold To warm my soul from the growing cold Ornaments of gold We can drink from silver vessels We can feed from silver […]

The Ghost In You – Siouxie And The Banshees

from the infinite fields of dreamless sleep You return to Tiannammen an eyewitness in a shroud to see them fall, feel them yield reliving the terror of the crowd Hold the whirlwind, don’t let it blow just for a moment I seemed to know Hold the whirlwind, don’t let it blow I seemed to know […]

Fear (of The Unknown) – Siouxie And The Banshees

I get the feeling — it’s someone I don’t know Do you ever have the strange sensation when you’re standing mighty tall to jump from 17 floors and crash into freefall but then fear takes control — fear of the unknown Imagine two complete strangers who suspect they were meant to be both in need […]

Softly – Siouxie And The Banshees

Softly into these broken dreams Will you ever come home? Will you ever be found? Standing on shattered windowpane softly I whisper your name concealed in bedclothes of frosting cold Softly the snowflakes start to fall fleecing the velvet skin Suspended in frozen time Icicles slowly drip outside to the rhythm of your wounds here […]
