"Tattoo" as written by Amanda Ghost, Tor Hermansen, Ian Dench and Mikkel Eriksen....
Color me,color me
When you're sitting all alone in the middle of the floor,
There's something uncontrollable,
You sit down watching the door
Color me,color me

I really feel ill,
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff
Sing your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Color me,color me

Something fits along my spine
Just givin' lovin' from behind
Fortify my arms
Fortify my arms
Color me, color me.

When you're sitting all alone in the middle of the floor,
There's something uncontrollable,
You sit down watching the door
Color me,color me

I really feel ill,
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff
Sing your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Color me,color me

Something fits along my spine
Just givin' lovin' from behind
Fortify my...
Fortify my...
Color me, color me.
Color me,color me
Color me

Something fits in the middle of the floor,
There's something uncontrollable,
You sit down watching the door
Color me,color me

I really feel ill,
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff
your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Color me,color me

Something fits along my spine
Just givin' lovin' from behind
Fortify my arms
Fortify my arms
Color me, color me.

    General CommentWell, this is a Siouxsie and the Banshees cover. Apparently Tricky/Massive Attack admired them.
    I love this song, and the original.
    The lyrics are different from the original but I think thats because Tricky just sang the song as he heard it.
    (it is a little tricky to make out the lyrics in the original song.)

    Siouxsie and the Banshee's version:

    When you're sitting all alone in the middle of the floor
    There's something uncontrollable
    As you sit there watching the door
    Colour me

    Tattooed on the inside
    Slap your thigh, slap your calf,
    Sing your mantra, leave your mark
    Colour me

    Something fierce along my spine
    To scare the madman from behind
    Fortify my arms with some snake-like lines
    Colour me, colour me

    Like a stomach split in half
    By a surgeon's cutting art
    Colours me, colours me, colours me

    When you're sitting all alone
    In the middle of the floor
    There's something uncontrollable
    As you sit there watching the door

    Tattooed on the inside
    A lonely feeling
    Inoculating
    Colours me

    Slap your thigh, slap your calf,
    Sing your mantra, leave your mark
    Colour me

    It gives a feeling of fear or paranoia? Kind of a creepy feeling. Like being watched, or watching somebody.
    ... thats all I got...
