Poison in the walls Lyrics

Poison in the walls by The Go-Betweens  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Poison in the walls Back and forward, eyes on the prize
Powder burns and lies
Medusa on the strings
And though you're fading fast
You thought you'd made it past
The guards and the dogs
Circuit lines and cogs
Machines that make you wings
Don't run on dirty oil
You're getting stale

But sometimes you see those eyes in the sky
There's poison in the walls
The revolution never called
And now we're all the same

For so long deep down and blue
There's nothing more that's new
And where's that brilliant juice
The flame that fired your heart
That made you want to start
Oh, oh let's go
And on with the show
The snake's up in the roof
Then the click of hoof
It's time to fly

But sometimes you see those eyes in the sky
There's poison in the walls
The revolution never called
So don't go outside like a child in the streets
Hanging on by claws
Another useless empty cause
And now we're all the same
Skin

And though you're fading fast
Your dreaming's free

But sometimes you see those eyes in the sky
There's poison in the walls
The revolution never called
So don't go outside like a child in the streets
Hanging on by claws
Another useless empty cause
And now we're all the same
Skin
