Lips growing for service
Eyes steady for peeling
Bring on the special guest
A monkey caught stealing
Standard rewards in corners
Is full-board in new quarters
Kneeling for pleasure
Ensures a good time

I remember, I remember
Making the body search
I remember, I remember
Making the body search

Someone is taking you
Someone has taken me
TV doesn't understand
A word that matters
Scattering desires to
Smouldering fires
Someone has taken you
Someone is taking me

I remember, I remember
Making the body search
I remember, I remember
Making the body search

I remember
Making the body search
That it was nothing
But enough for ahead

I remember
Making the body search
That it was nothing
But enough for ahead

    General Comment...Or not,
    I see it as a big "fuck you" to corruption in full circle.

    My InterpretationI think that it's about feeling cheated and lied to, be it by a greater system that feels rigged or in a relationship that feels false. In the end, even the person deceiving you has been duped, thinking that they've gained something from pulling the wool over your eyes when they're just as screwed as you, and what you're both given is only enough to move "forward" and "up"... That is, nowhere of any meaning.

    Pretty bleak, but beautiful.

    Anyone ever heard a live version of this song? Very intense and far less dour than the original, in particular the rushing hi-hat-driven backbeat and psychotic, giddy vocal harmonies. Overall, not to far from Newman's early solo work, minus the heavy-as-hell Thorne production (which I love for quite different reasons).
