"Lifeguard On Duty" as written by Stephen Street and Morrissey,....
The world you chose has a practical vein
But I read much more into your name
Lifeguard.
Patrolling the lenght and the breadth of your pool
I call your name from the vestibule
Lifeguard

Lifeguard, save me from life
Save me from life
Save me from life
Save me from the ails and the ills, and
from other things.

The center of the town is a dangerous zone
Drenched in phlegm every time that I come home
Lifeguard - save me from life.
Save me from life.
Save me from life.

Save me from the ails and the ills
And from other things.

Love me, oh help me, oh
oh help me, oh help oh

Lifeguard, guard me from life
Lifeguard, guard me from life.

The last bus home is the dangerous one,
A baseball bat against the collarbone.
Lifeguard.

Lifeguard, save me from life.
Save me from life.
Save me from life.

Cause it's the only life I'll ever have,
I'm always good, I'm never bad
And I've always been so kind,
To the sick and to the partially blind.

Save me from life.

    General CommentNo comments? I guess only us crazies would have this song. :P I find it oh so very pleasing to the ear, as with most Moz songs.

    General CommentThis was written during the Viva Hate sessions. In the song Moz pleads for the Lifeguard to protect him (physically and emotionally) from life. It's a simple song but a very pleasing one I find, in fact it's recently become one of the songs I listen to most.
