"Melody Lee" as written by Raymond Ian Burns, Christopher John Millar, David Vanian and Alasdair Mackie Ward....
Melody Lee, a broken mind and a broken dream
I bust the speed to change your heart
Your life was cruel they called it art

Melody Lee, you need a mirror to set you free
It won't be kinda cheap tomorrow
If you hide any sorrow

Melody Lee, you gotta find your secret enemy
You're on the road with nowhere to go
If you die someone to know

Forget your heart, you need not stay
A second longer than today

    General CommentTo summarise lol.
    Melody Lee appeared in the British kids comic (think The Beano not Superman) Bunty. A young dancer who was being trained by a scarred ex-pro dancer. Fantasticly creepy really. Despite being popular she was dropped from the book and Captain Sensible and his girlfriend were protesting the same day as the Sid Vicious concert (not at it).

    The song was written by taking lines straight from the speech bubbles and caption boxes of the Melody Lee strip. So the song is actually about the character.

    This information brought to you from the Machine Gun Etiquette CD re-issue's booklet.

    General CommentLyrics from Sensible: Melody Lee, a broken mind and a broken dream / A burst of speed a change of heart / Your life was cruel, they called it art / Melody Lee, you need a mirror to set you free / You know you can't cheat tomorrow, if you hide it'll end in sorrow / Melody Lee, you gotta find your secret enemy / You're on the run with nowhere to go / If you die there's no one to know / Forget your heart, you need not stay / A second longer than today
