"Ice House" as written by and Sioux Budgie....
The ice house preserves
With incestuous flowers
Their nightly perfume overpowers me

The stamens kiss
Entwined devouring
The heart will melt whilst the ice remains

Erogenous touch
Of brother and sister
The ice retains life no offspring to bear

Phallic flower
Etched into my memory
A feline form on a frosted pane

Not ashes to ashes
Not dust to dust
A beckoning bouquet
Of blossoming lust

Oh will you stay
Until this moment's complete?
Oh let me freeze you
With this fragrance so sweet
We shall not slither and wither away
The door will lock shut
When the ice names the day

Not ashes to ashes
Not dust to dust
A beckoning bouquet
Of blossoming lust

    Song MeaningThe lyrics describe the plot of "The Ice House", a BBC short film from 1978 (part of the "A Ghost Story For Christmas" series).

    "In the film, Paul (John Stride) has recently left his wife and has moved to a residential health spa located in an old country house to recuperate. A number of strange disappearances and attacks of "the cools" make Paul begin to suspect a strange flower growing in an old ice house and the strange behaviour of the brother and sister who run the spa may be something more sinister."
