You boy
What's it like to wet your foot in a cold swimming pool?
What does your voice sound like underwater?
At night?
Can you do the chickenskin swim?
Can you do the chlorine gargoyle?
Can you wriggle like an eel?


You're another shut-in freak
Living off the burn of boy's own razzled body
Another cup of instant coffee
Another plastic spoon
Another table routine
I don't know why boy's proud of a nicotine hack
What's so fucking clever about that?
You little cunt
Another tube
Another tube of shitpaste
Squeezed out
Squeeze out that brown hairgel
Squirt your fave long tube
Recarving boy hollow into the splash
And I really don't know
No idea
I have no fucking idea why boy'd be proud
Of another case of flu
Face the feast of powder
Face the feast of powder
Face the feast of powder
'Cause i know you'll scream and tell the whole fucking world


Another tube
Another tube of shitpaste
Squeezed out
Squeeze out that brown hairgel
Squirt your fave long tube
Recarving boy hollow into the splash
And i really don't know
No idea
I have no fucking idea
I have no fucking idea why boy'd be proud of another case of flu
Another running nostril
Another running mouth
And don't just sit there chatting
Nodding amicably
Give me those lights
And stop giggling, chickenskin
Face the feast of powder
Face the feast of powder
Face the feast of powder
'Cause I know you'll scream and tell the whole fucking world
Tell the whole fucking world


I don't know why you'd be proud
Of your 33 hours' lack of need
You're just another shut-in freak
Living off the burn of boy's own razzled body
Another cup of instant coffee
Another plastic spoon
Another table routine
I don't know why boy'd be proud of a nicotine hack
What's so fucking clever about that?
You little cunt
You little cunt



Come on boy
You're home
Hey chickenskin
You're home
Wriggle like a fucking eel
Wriggle like a fucking eel
Wriggle like a fucking eel

    General CommentThis song makes me (especially my ears) incredibly uncomfortable, but that's why it's great.

    General Commenteasily one of the most insane songs ever recorded. pure madness...

    i remember listening to this around the time michael barrymore was arrested for a boy drowning in his swimming pool during a party. the line "face the feast of powder" is also relevant, as the boy was found with drugs in his system, and barrymore was a well known coke user.

    General CommentThis song is one of the most furious and crazy songs of Whitehouse.
    I admire William and Phillip for creating one of the most violent and completely insane albums of the decade...

    Hats off to you guys.
