"Death Goes to the Disco" as written by and Jarvis Cocker Russell Senior....
Tonight's the night
Open your door and I'll come inside
Don't be afraid, it will be alright
I will change your whole life tonight
And you're so beautiful
Too beautiful for this dead-end world
I'm taking you to a better place
Oh, far away from this stupid race, oh

Come with me
For ever
And ever
Please come with me
For ever
No, don't let me down
Oh, don't make me cry
Lie in my arms
And be mine tonight
Do it

Oh, did I tell you
There was no need to be afraid?
Oh, you've got such a beautiful body
Oh, you'll make such a beautiful body
I smoke these yellow-lit cul-de-sacs at night
You hear my foot-step on your bedroom stair
And I will take the first one in every house in town
I'll take your sisters and I'll lay them down
I'll lay them down

Mother (mother)
Father (father)
Brother (brother)
Take them all

Make you mine
I want your body

Mother (mother)
Father (father)
Brother (brother)
The wind (the wind)
Streets (streets)
Those girls (girls)
I walked into town (town) (town).

    General CommentThis is one of those songs that make you admire Jarvis Cocker and company. Great music (love the rhythm and bass and the 'do it' part) and good melody for the first half the song then WHAM you go a different direction. I have no idea what this song is about, because after 'do it' i'm lost.

    General CommentPretty straight forwad I think. An anti-drugs song. With the drug personified as the first person, and the Death of the title - drug and death as lover, seducing the object of the first verse, expanding to the wider damange to communities with a symbolic allusion to the story of passover.
