"Bloodflood pt. II" as written by and Joe Newman Augustus Unger Hamilton....
Heat shimmer
Hips quiver
Open smother
Lipped lover

Ooh, dead in the middle of the C-O-double-M-O-N
Little did I know then that the Mandela Boys
Soon become Mandela Men
Razor blades on a melted toothbrush
Assassin de la police

Woah ooh

Heat shimmer
Silky glistener, uh huh
Open smother
Lipped lover, uh huh

Ooh, dead in the middle of the C-O-double-M-O-N
Little did I know then that the Mandela Boys
Soon become Mandela Men
Silent knife, unholy knife
I've fallen for the black outside my window

Ooh, on the C-O-double-M-O-N
On the C-O-double-M-O-N

A flood of blood to the heart
A flood of blood to the heart
A flood of blood to the heart
A flood of blood to the heart

A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)
A flood (Quelea, quelea) of blood to the heart (Quelea, quelea)

    General CommentI found the other lyrics of the improvisation on genius.com from geomtri :
    And of all the things that I will do
    And I will die for you
    And I waited, waited for you
    Here
    Wait to promise you
    For a body to down
    I am close for you
    And the world will crumble to
    Here
    Wait to promise you
    That being said I am no where near certain, its just what I heard. If anyone has any more ideas; I’m really, really curious.

    General CommentI think it has to do with South Africa and the end of the apartheid.
    Mandela boys/men probably refers to Nelson Mandela's supporters.
    Quelea is a type of african bird that is found in South Africa.

    It took me a while to understand what the "Common" was because Alt- J uses this word a lot, but here it's obviously the commonwealth.

    I'm bad at history so i don't want to say anything stupid, but this song is probably about blood shed during a revolution for independance in South Africa.

    Which wasn't what I understood at first, I thought it was about sex.
