"The Mincer" as written by David Francis Cross, Richard William Palmer James, Robert Fripp, William Scott Bruford and John Kenneth Wetton....
Fingers reaching,
Fingers reeking.

Jump for the scream,
Good night, honey.

You're all alone,
Baby, breathing.

They come better looking,
But they don't come mannered.

    General CommentOh, my bad- seems I did them out of order. The correct lyrics are:
    Fingers reaching
    Linger shrieking
    Jump for the scream
    Goodnight honey
    You're all alone
    Baby breathing
    They come better looking
    But they don't come mannered

    Anyway, it seems to be about either
    a) a man leaving his lover after she has cheated on him with a man who is "better looking" but not "mannered" -or-
    b) a woman masturbating, because she realizes how difficult it is to find a man who has both those traits.
