"Big Neon Glitter" as written by and Ian Robert/duffy Astbury....
Oh, drag me back, and drag me back
And drag me back, drag me back, drag me back
Through the revolution, without solution
And the walls get taller

While ye get smaller
While we get smaller
The fear is getting taller

A big neon glitter pushes onto you, oh baby
Sex from the hip at the crack of a whip, oh yeah
The wall gets taller while ye get smaller, yeah
Push against the big neon glitter, pushes onto you
None may indeed go out

Oh, drag me back, drag me back
And drag me back, drag me back, drag me back
Through the revolution, without solution
And the wall gets taller

While ye get smaller
While ye get smaller
The fear is getting taller

Neon glitter onto you, oh baby
Sex from the hip at the crack of a whip, oh yeah
The wall gets taller while ye get smaller, yeah, yeah, yeah
A big neon glitter pushes onto you, oh baby

Yeah

A big neon
A big neon
A big neon glitter
A big neon glitter

A big neon
A big neon
A big neon glitter
A big neon glitter
A big neon glitter

    General CommentThis is my favorite underated song. Unluckly, I can't really understand it really well.

    But my only idea about it, it's probably a reference to the Berlin Wall during the Cold war, and how people are feeling dependent about it, and might also be afraid to act, when they might be killed (As the wall gets taller As you get smaller As we get smaller The fear is getting taller).

    As for the part "Drag me back Drag me back Through the revolution without solution", I think it's recalling the beginning of the Cold War and the Berlin wall being created. But if we link this to the song title, I guess it's like a return in the past. But if we look at it more clearly, it can also relate to the theory of surpassing the speed of light and seeing the past, since a Neon is like some kind of light.

    Sorry if I kept proceding in this. I guess thats what the lyrics mean in my opinion.

    General CommentIt's a song about prostitution, kids. Perhaps in Vietnam.

    General CommentA total rip off of the Sex Pistols, to which they fully admit, another great song by The Cult.
