"Corpses In Their Mouths" as written by and Brown/ibrahim....
You tell lies when the truth will do
You are the social chameleon
What on earth we gonna do with you?
Slip your neck into a rope,
Show me a smile
You'd run a mile
Then you are free,
So where's the goal?
Where's the style?
You want the dough
Got dead sea scrolls
For you and your women too

She's got corpses in her mouth
Still she's holding hands with you
It's cut like crystal chandeliers
I'll shine like diamonds in her ears

She smokes crack, it's off the beaten track
You are the social chameleon,
You change to suit the people around you
It's like the waves that hit the shore
You cannot stand the force of law
Look man, I know it from your nature
Hit the deck

Hit the deck, as the creator
Got dead sea scrolls
For you and your women too

She's got corpses in her mouth
Still she's holding hands with you
It's cut like crystal chandeliers
I'll shine like diamonds in her ears

    General Commentthe title is borrowed from a quote by situationist writer raoul vaneigem. i think it's from the book "revolution of everyday life", but i could be wrong on that.

    "People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have corpses in their mouths."

    General Commentjust checked, the quote is from the revolution of everydy life. vaneigem was a part of the Situationist International, whose philosophy reputedly was the catalyst for the may 68 paris riots, a theme which runs through the roses first album. also, "under the paving stones... the beach" is a situationist slogan painted around paris during the riots, among many other slogans.
