Murderers come dressed as suicides
They drag the donkeys that carry the shit
Wondering where all of that hope went
I'm telling you now, this is it

Everybody knows you sell mouthwash
As liquid gold always rusts
The rollerblade girls concrete the beaches
The coffee cups crumble to dust

On the titanic, groovy
The lifeboats blow in the wind

Listening to your northern soul records
You're pumped up with The stax and the blues
I can't help it if I was born stupid
I'm thinking about buying some shoes

Saxophones wait in the echo
I'm a good-looking 19 year old girl
Hanging in the light like a gecko
Inviting all men into my world

On the titanic, groovy
The lifeboats blow in the wind

    General CommentIt's about a drug trip....

    "Everybody knows you sell mouthwash
    As liquid gold or as rust" (Lyrics I can hear on the live version, may be slightly different)

    It's sort of him hallucinating, telling people what he really thinks of them and also just random thoughts popping into his head like buying shoes!

    General CommentOh, sorry, forgot to add. The "Titanic.... don't panic" bit at the end is about when you get high and if you panic, you can get the fear, go onto a bad trip and freak out. So it's saying when you "ride the titanic," ride it out and don't fight it.
