"Sex Beat" as written by and Jeffrey Lee Pierce....
Johnny's got a light in his eyes and Shirley's got a light on her lips
Jakes got a monkeyshine on his head and Debra Ann's got a tiger in her hips
They can twist and turn they can move and burn
They can throw themselves against the wall
But they creep for what they need
And they explode to the call and then they move
Move
Sex beat, go

They're stupid like I told ya, very stupid like ya saw
Very stupid as the simple thought of ever thinking at all
And all their mind, all their souls all their bodies all we know
All we know all the things that should a made us whole
All the colourless security was all that someone could go and move, move
Sex beat, drop

And yes you do look cool and by the floodlights so blue
You make my tropical apartment bed, your sacrificial pool
My body in the water and my heart is in your hand
So this is the way you choose to send me to the judgement land
So you can't move, move oohh..sex beat, go

And every day I agree you throw me down by the christmas tree
I watched your lights blink on and off while you start your fun with me
I, I know your reasons and I, I know your goals
We can fuck forever but you will never get my soul
Just so you can move
So you can move
So you can move
So you can move so you can
Oohh... Sex beat

    General CommentThis is so funny to read these lyrics now on songmeanings. I know this album really well but my brain mondegreened the fuck out of a lot of these lyrics.

    Like, it says here it's: and every day I agree you throw me down by the Christmas Tree.

    I always thought it was: "every day at three...." Wouldn't that be nice? Maybe a cash of wishful thinking influencing one's preceptions.

    General Commentsurprised that anyone's commented yet on this one...
    does anybody around here proved desire?
    think it's a really energetic song about how desire makes people crazy...
    i love this couple of lines

    I, I know your reasons and I, I know your goals
    we can fuck forever but you will never get my soul

    one of the best punk songs ever...

    General CommentIt is about only wanting someone based on appearance and appeal and
    not about wanting someone for their soul and the very fabric of their
    entity. It is about the naivity of allowing someone to convince you that
    another only wants you for the purpose of sex when in fact the person
    wants to love and be loved.
