song by "Richard Hell and the Voidoids", not "the voids"

Another World
(Ork Records: Blank Generation e.p. vinyl, 1976, o.p.)
[rerecorded for Sire/Warners: Blank Generation LP 1977; cd rerelease, 1990]

Head wrapped in your hair
In a box lined with silk
You can't learn to talk
and the air is your milk

Erasing my face
I want you so bad
I want to be you
it's futile it's sad

Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh oh oh
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world

Muscle against silk
Tears fall from the burn
A smell of perfume
In a moment you'll turn

In a moment you'll turn
Your face will change shape
We exchange just one gift:
to see like an ape

Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh oh oh
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world

Oh so easy to go
drawn in the vacuum
At the time I'm in you
I'm alone in the back room

Down to the last raw
My eyes open wide
To collect all the scraps
Ten more years and they'll cry

Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh, oh baby
Oh oh oh
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world
I could live with you in another world
