"This Corrosion (Sisters Of Mercy Cover)" as written by and Andrew Taylor aka Andrew Eldritch....
Gimme the Ring, kissed and toll'd
Gimme something that I missed
(Gimme the ring)
A hand to hold, wild and what it seems
(Gimme the ring)
Kill the king, when love is the law,
And the we'll turn round...
(Gimme the ring)
Gimme dream child
And do you hear me call?
(Gimme the ring)
On the loan and on the level
...still on the floor
(Gimme the ring)
Sing dream child
And do you hear at all?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

Gimme siren, child and do you hear me?
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?
Sing, child, of right and wrong
Gimme things that don't last long
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

On daze, like this
In times like these
I feel an animal deep inside
Heel to haunch on bended knees
Living on if and if I tried,
Somebody send me... please...
Dream wars and a ticket to seem
Giving out and in
Selling the don't belong
Well, what do you say
D'you have a word for Giving Away?
Got a song for me?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing...

I got nothing to say I ain't said before
I bled all I can, I won't bleed no more
I don't need no one to understand
Why the blood run hold
The hired hand
On heart
Hand of God
Floodland and Driven Apart
Run cold
Turn
Cold
Burn
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand

    Song FactWhy does this say it was written by Andrew Taylor? This Corrosion was written by Andrew Eldritch of the Sisters of Mercy in 1987. Not by Andrew Taylor. WYF is wrong with people?

    General CommentCould you possibly mean Taylor, Andrew? Because as of now, there is no comma there. Who uses first names only in sources anyway?

    "This Corrosion" is a song from the album Floodland by The Sisters of Mercy. It was released as a single in 1987 reaching number 7 in the UK Charts.

    The song was written by Andrew Eldritch, and produced by Jim Steinman. It is generally recognized as one of the band's most well-known songs, using a 40-piece choir, with the LP version of the song lasting for nearly 11 minutes (the single versions are substantially shorter). Eldritch's lyrics concern his previous band members leaving The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission." wiki
