"Track 8" as written by John Lydon and Keith Levene....
A bed in the corner
The suffering suffragette
Such an obvious trap
Imagine that
A Butterball turkey
Spread her body
Naked and silly
A bulbous heap
Batting her eyelids
The lights go down
Erupting in fat
The blackwall tunnel
An elephant's grave
A second-hand mattress
Come and play total commitment
Premenstrual tension

Alright, I finished

    General CommentIt's actually a rather gruesome, impressionistic description of being seduced by a reporter. Lydon did once refer to himself, at that time, as a "sexless little beast". Very paranoid, misanthropic.
