"Cascade" as written by and Anthony Edwin Phillips....
Oh the air was shining
Shining like a wedding ring
Barbed like sex
I felt ten thousand volts
My chest was full of eels
Pushing through my usual skin
I opened up new wounds
Pouting, shouting

Oh love, like liquid falling
Falling in cascades
Oh lovelorn victims
Laughing in cascades

The sun was rich
Rich with a song of sin
My breath melted my words
Into strange alphabets
Tormenting my tongue
Pouting, shouting

Oh love, like liquid falling
Falling in cascades
Oh lovelorn victims
Laughing in cascades

The heartbeats were echoing
Echoing the revolver
Emptying into my mouth
I pulled a face from my pocket
And smiled a leper's grin
I felt somebody close
Pouting, shouting

Oh love, like liquid falling
Falling in cascades
Oh lovelorn victims
Laughing in cascades

    My InterpretationI've always seen this song as a rush of sexual emotions all rushing in a moment as lovers fall for a climax whilst thinking of these fantasies that they could possibly play out, but that's just the suggestion of a fan.

    Song MeaningI've recently been listening to the "Nocturne" version of this song & I don't have a bloody idea what she's talking about!!

    General Commenti don't actually know what it's about, but i've always saw it as a very sexual song

    Lyric CorrectionI always thought it went: "The sun was red / wretched sun of sin"...
    Are these the lyrics from the liner notes?

    A great song from a great album, in any case....
