"Twist and Crawl" as written by Andrew Cox, Roger Charlery, Everett Morton, David Steele and David Frederick Wakeling....
Something shows in your face
Aren't you forgetting yourself
Merely let your mouth stand
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl

Emotion packed in every tear
Emotion mirrors your fears
Smile and say hello dear
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl

Walk into a nightclub
See you standing in there
Both your eyes are on me
Wonder what makes you care
Wonder what makes you stare

Walk into a nightclub
All your friends are in there
Is that really blond hair?
Why don't you play fair,
You could be in Mayfair?

You broke my heart in several pieces
Not supposed to be that easy
Have to read the books again
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl

But you can't hurt me anymore
I haven't got a heart no more
No feelings get in my way
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl

Did you think that I'd return
Emotions all I need to learn
Some day you're gonna feel the same
Vice-a-versa love affair
Vice-a-versa love affair

Did you think that I'd return
Emotions all I need to learn
Some day you're gonna feel the same
Vice-a-versa love affair
Vice-a-versa love affair

Now I've made a new way
Now my mind is rearranged
Now I can't be sure again
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl
Twist and crawl, twist and crawl, twist and crawl

Are we really happy or maybe just pretending
I can't tell the difference
Twist and crawl, twist

    General CommentHoly cow! This is such a cool song. Their very very best...easily. It's about seeing his former girlfriend, after a bad break-up that has left him emotionally unfeeling. And the thought and sight of her makes his skin twist and crawl.

    General CommentAt times it seems to be about the weird emotional/emotionless state a breakup can bring about. Other times it seems to take on an almost sci-fi edge, coming from some AI in a humanoid body who had a bad experience.

    Part of me thinks it might be about someone who is generally emotionally detached trying to sort out being in love and eventual rejection.
