"Right Hand Heart" as written by and Nicholas Currie....
I meet this girl with a righthand heart
I notice nothing until we start to kiss
And my hand goes beneath her dress
To the lefthand breast

Downstairs the party's going full swing
The people we came with haven't noticed a thing
As I tease the teat with my teeth
I feel nothing underneath

She puts my ear across her chest
Rests my head against the righthand breast
Sure enough her heart is there
Loud and clear

Beat, beating, beating on
The right side of oblivion
Beat, beating, beating on
The wrong side of her body

And though I know there's nothing dangerous in it
I'm feeling queasy, getting worse by the minute
Wondering how to escape this nightmare
When up the stair

Comes this boy with no heart at all
Him and her they make the perfect couple
Him so blind in his rapacity
That he doesn't even see it

Beat, beating, beating on
The right side of oblivion
Beat, beating, beating on
The wrong side of her body

And as I contemplate this mating of rapacity and
sickness
Of which I am the fascinated, unwilling witness
I see he couldn't care where her heart might be
And I say "what the hell is wrong with me?

Am I just too pure and too proud?"
And as the bed creaks I ask myself aloud
"Could it be that what makes me a freak Is my contempt
for freaks?"

I start to sweat, I feel it approach
Familiar self-hate, familiar self-reproach
And under my guard again it beats so hard
My righthand heart

Beat, beating, beating on
The right side of oblivion
Beat, beating, beating on
The wrong side of my body

Beat, beating, beating on
The right side of oblivion
Beat, beating, beating on
