"The Hanging Garden (Studio Demo)" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Simon Gallup....
Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden please don't speak
In the hanging garden no one sleeps

Catching halos on the moon
Gives my hands the shapes of angels
In the heat of the night the animals scream
In the heat of the night walking into a dream

Fall fall fall fall
Into the walls
Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals cry
In the hanging garden

Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden change the past
In the hanging garden wearing furs and masks

Fall fall fall fall
Into the walls
Jump jump out of time
Fall fall fall fall
Out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals die
In the hanging garden

In the hanging garden

    General CommentI think it's "trip", not "drip". It's about having closed-eye hallucinations.

    General Commentthis lyrics are very different from the other version. I've always thought the hanging garden was about animal abuse, but now i'm not sure anymore.

    General CommentYeah the album version is definitely related to the animal sex. But I'm not sure about this Studio Demo version. However I like this version better. It's more creepy & trippy.
    But I get the feeling that the song is about a thing like 'blackout' or a 'drug trip'.

    General CommentI think this studio version sounds more like animal abuse than the other.
