"Pale White Girls" as written by and Bob Geldof....
Pale white girls
Look for love
Pale white bodies
Stretch for love

Scratching the flesh
Scraping of bones
Limbs that are trembling babe
For something to hold

Languid and liquid
Well maybe I'll stay
Marbled and ghostly girls
Take me away

Your mouth on my body
In this tall room
Crushed, bruised and crimson
Lit by the moon
The fluorescent moon

Sacred those hours
Away from the storm
Wrenched from the deepest pits
Crying "Reborn, Reborn, Reborn"

And I will not follow
And I will not lead
Your permissions to bleed
Have been guaranteed
By the one
Whose approval you seek

Pale white girls
Scratch for love
Pale white bodies
Stretch for love

The crucifix stares
From its hip-cocked heights
But I hold the secrets now
Velvet the night
Velvet the night

And I will not follow
Why waste my time
My permission to bleed
Has been guaranteed
By the one
Whose approval you need
