"92 Degrees" as written by and Peter Clark Aka: Budgie Susan Ballion Aka: Siouxsie Sioux....
The day drags by like a wounded animal
The approaching disease, 92 degrees
The blood in our veins and the brains in our head
The approaching unease, 92 degrees

Long ago in the headlines, they noticed it too
But too late for the loved ones and nearly for you

Shaky lines on the horizon
Snakey thoughts invade each person
Watch the red line creeping upwards
Watch the sanity line weaken

The volcanic depths of Hades' ocean
Bubble under these crazed eruptions
It wriggles and writhes and bites within
Just below the sweating skin

I wondered when this would happen again
Now I watch the red line, reach that number again
The blood in our veins and the brains in our head

Drink the water with jagged glass
Eat the cactus with bleeding mouth
Not 91 or 93 but 92 Fahrenheit degrees

Drink the water with jagged glass
Eat the cactus with bleeding mouth
Not 91 or 93 but 92 Fahrenheit degrees

Shaky lines on the horizon
Snakey thoughts invade each person
Not 91 or 93, but 92 Fahrenheit degrees

    General CommentSIOUXSIE: "That was sparked off by a short story I read where crimes would escalate when the temperature reached 92 degrees. It's about the rising panic of the people who know what's going to happen as the temperature rises towards that number. I mentioned it to Steve, who'd seen some alien from outer space film, in which, right at the end, a sheriff says: 'Yeah, just about at this temperature everybody goes crazy'." Source: NME 28/09/85.
