"Words So Leisured" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
She's an emotion avenger
She is the villain who sends a
Line of dark fantastic passion

She knows that you will surrender
Knows that you will surrender
You want this fantastic passion
We'll have fantastic passion

You can feel her lips undress your eyes
Why should ugly skin that never feels...
Never feel your fingers tingle tense anticipation on it
This was an easy one, feel the word and melt upon it

Words of love, words so leisured
Words are poisoned darts of pleasure
Die...

Yes, she's in her black mood tonight
Watch her dye your black hair right
Love you of you, all muscles slacken
All the skin that was so tight

So ask for a reason
Ask for any reason
Ask for the one reply
For the one reply

Try for reason
But passion never lives
It dies with reason
Try for reason
Then die?

    General CommentPresumably the meaning of this song would be exactly the same as darts of pleasure

    General CommentI think those lyrics whould be:
    "Try for a reason. But passion never lives - it dies - with reason."
    i.e. Reason kills passion.
    I think this version is simply a sleazier, sexier version of the first one. This is the version to use to get a Franz fan into bed. :o)

    General CommentVery nice sounds but "Yes, she's in her black mood tonight
    Watch her dye your black hair white
    Rob you of you muscle slacken
    All the skin that was so tight "
    didn't fit in .

    General CommentNot at all a demo or acoustic version of "Darts of pleasure", but another song, much darker and sexier. I just don't understand (or maybe I DON'T WANT to understand) the meaning of these words: "You can feel her lips undress your eyes
    Wash that ugly skin and never feel good
    Never feel your fingers tingle tense anticipation on it". ...?

    General CommentThe posted lyrics are incorrect... here's the correct lyrics:

    She's an emotion avenger
    she is the villain who sends a
    Line of dark fantastic passion
    She knows that you will surrender
    Knows that you will surrender

    you want this fantastic passion
    we’ll have fantastic passion
    You can feel her lips undress your eyes
    Why should ugly skin that never feels...

    Never feel your fingers tingle tense anticipation on it
    this one is an easy one, feel the word and melt upon it
    Words of love, words so leisured
    Words are poisoned darts of pleasure
    die...

    Yes, she's in her black mood tonight
    Watch her dye your black hair white
    Rob you of your muscles, slacken
    all the skin that was so tight

    So ask for a reason
    Ask for any reason
    Ask for the one reply
    for the one reply

    Try for reason
    but passion never lives
    it dies with reason
    Try for reason
    then die…

    It presents an interisting contrast if you listen to it back to back with "Darts of Pleasure"

    Personally I kinda think that the end result of this song leads to the circumstances of Darts of Pleasure... here the woman seduces and breaks the guys heart, there he has become the seducer and does the same thing.
