Talk to a man just to get a little work
Then you talk to the hand just to get a little jerk
Some people die, then they start to get old
But I don't want to die upon the threshold

I got threshold apprehesion
Threshold apprehension
I got threshold apprehension

Every little shit gotta find his salt lick
If I don't find my babe, I'm gonna be junk sick
Roll away the rock so I can get to my ascension
Ain't my first time having threshold apprehension

I got threshold aprehension
Threshold apprehension
I got threshold apprehension

We got on my bike and we rode to the sea
I stood on the dock and you got on your knees
Grand Marnier and a pocket full of speed
We did it all day 'til we started to bleed

Are you feeling apprehensive?

I can leap higher than an old king toad
I do 185 on the new ring road
I love a blue girl and I like my grog
It's a black and white world, cuz I'm a Scorpio dog
Have drink, press button, seventh floor
And wait a hundred years for the elevator door
Come a time when you gotta lose the tension
It's the last time for the threshold apprehension

I got threshold aprehension
Threshold apprehension
I got threshold apprehension

Who's carrying who?
Who's turning the screw?
Who has prophesied?
Petit paramour
I will be the whore
And you'll be my suicide

Who's carrying who?
Who's turning the screw?
Who has prophesied?
Petit paramour
I will be the whore
And you'll be my suicide

    General CommentThe album ‘Blue Finger’ is about the life and works of Dutch musician, painter and media personality Herman Bood (pronounced ‘Hairmon Broat’),I think the album cover is one of his paintings. who due to depression over his drug use and his break-up with his wife committed suicide at the age of 54, on 11 July 2001, by jumping from the roof of the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel.

    So yes, this song is about suicide, drug use and depression.

    @ ritecoastsurfer, "185 on the new ring road" is the speed he's going on the ring road, probable in the Netherlands. What made you think 'Moscow'?

    General CommentWow, no comments for such an amazing song???

    I think its about longing for death or something of the sort and how some get there so easily. But some parts of it confuse me.

    General Commentis "185 on the new ring road" a reference to the ring roads that go around Moscow? Sounds like the song is about crossing the threshold of doing drugs until death or something of the sort.

    General CommentFavorite Frank Black song. No doubt.
