Random Lyrics Thursday

Continuing our Iggy Pop focus, it's...

China Girl by Iggy Pop & David Bowie

Is it about heroin? Is it about Imperialism? Is it just about having a Chinese girlfriend? All three?

I could escape this feeling
With my china girl
I'm just a wreck without
My little china girl

I'd hear hearts beating
Loud as thunder
See the stars crashing
I'm a mess without
My chlna girl

Wake up mornings there's
No china girl
I'd hear hearts beating
Loud as thunder
I'd see the stars crashing down

I'd feel tragic
Like I was Marlon Brando
When I'd look at my china girl
I could pretend that nothing
Really meant too much
When I'd look at my china girl

I'd stumble into town
Just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
And plans for everyone
It's in the white of my eyes
My little china girl

You shouldnt mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you men who want
To rule the world

And when I get excited
My little china girl says
Oh baby just you shut your mouth
She says shhhh...

Search and Destroy by Iggy Pop

I'm a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear a-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys

Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby
detonate for me

Look out honey, cause I'm using technology
Ain't got time to make no apology
Soul radiation in the dead of night
Love in the middle of a fire fight

Honey gotta strike me blind
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby penetrate my mind

Some Weird Sin by Iggy Pop

Well, I never got my license to live
They won't give it up
So I stand at the world's edge

I'm trying to break in
Oh, I know it's not for me
And the sight of it all
Makes me sad and ill
That's when I want- some weird sin

Things get too straight
I can't bear it
I feel stuck, stuck on a pin

I'm trying to break in
Oh, I know it's not for me
But the sight of it all
Makes me sad and ill
That's when I want- some weird sin
That's when I want- some weird sin
Just to relax with

Yeah, some dumb, weird sin
For a while anyway
With my head on the ledge
That's what you get out on the edge
some weird sin

Random Lyrics Thursday

Go Away by Living Colour

What is the point of suffering?
What is the purpose of joy?
Is it true that the winner dies
With the most toys?

A lifetime spent for a dollar
A lifetime twisting in pain
A lifetime gone in an hour
A lifetime playing the game

I see the starving Africans on TV
I feel it has nothing to do with me
I sent my twenty dollars to Live Aid
I've paid my guilty conscience to go away

Now go away

I don't want anybody to touch me
I think everybody has AIDS
What's the point in caring for you?
You're gonna die anyway

Random Lyrics Thursday

Lightly Row (Traditional)

Lightly row, lightly row,
O'er the glassy waves we go!
Smoothly glide, smoothly glide,
On the silent tide.

Let the winds and waters be
Mingled with our childish glee.
Sing and float, sing and float
In our little boat!

Far away, far away,
Echo in the rock at play;
Calleth not, calleth not,
To this lonely spot.

Only with the seabirds' note
Shall our happy music float.
Lightly row, lightly row,
In our little boat!

Where would you like to wait for the Apocalypse?

Why Iceland, i wonder? Wikipedia's info on the subject is unsatisfying.

By 1982, members of Killing Joke, especially Coleman, had become immersed in the occult, particularly the works of occultist Aleister Crowley. In February of that year, Coleman, with Geordie and Youth following shortly after, moved to Iceland to survive the Apocalypse, which Coleman predicted was coming soon. While in Iceland, Coleman and Geordie worked with musicians from the band Þeyr in the project Niceland. After a few months, Youth decided there was no indication of the Apocalypse, and decided to move back to England. Youth then began the band Brilliant with Paul Ferguson, but the latter defected and travelled to Iceland to rejoin Killing Joke with new bassist Paul Raven (previously of Neon Hearts and the rock / glam band Kitsch) in tow. After spending some time in Iceland, Killing Joke returned to England and began touring and recording again.
