"Dirty Epic" as written by Darren Emerson, Karl Hyde and Richard David Smith....
Sweet in winter sweet in rain
Shake well before use she said
You never touch me anymore this way
Connector in
Receiver out
You let me in through the back door
Ride the sainted rhythms on the midnight train to romford
Ride the sainted rhythms

Sweet in winter sweet in rain
Shake well before use she said
You never touch me anymore this way

Oh no

Connector, connector, connector, connector
You're a connector, connector, connector, connector

I'm so dirty
And the light blinds my eyes
You're oh so dirty
And the light it blinds my eyes
Here comes christ on crutches

Call me wet trampoline she said today
Well I was too busy with my hand
Shake well before use she said
But you never touch me anymore
I was busy listening for phone sex
Coming through the back door
In skin-tight trunks
And we all went mental and danced

I get my kicks on channel six
To the off-peak electricity
And the light blinds my eyes
And I feel dirty
And the light blinds my eyes
And I feel so shaken in my faith
Here comes christ on crutches
And here comes another god
Here comes another god
Like a buffalo thunder

With a smell of sugar
And a velvet tongue
And designer voodoo
And I got phone sex to see me through the emptiness in my 501s
Freeze-dried with a new religion
And my teeth stuffed back in my head

I get my kicks on channel six
I
I get my kicks on channel six

The light it burns my eyes
And I feel so dirty (feel so dirty)
Here comes christ on crutches (christ on crutches)

I will not be confused
Will not be confused
They left me confused
I will not be confused...with another man
This pressure of opinions
Lighten up
Listen to your eyes you said
But all I could see was doris day
In a big screen satellite
Disappearing down the tube hole on farringdon street
With whiplash willy the motor psycho

And the light it burns my eyes
And the light it burns my eyes
Get my kicks on channel six
I get my kicks on channel six

    General CommentIt's all about sex and sexual confusion.
    Possibly the woman in question enjoys receiving anal sex. When he finds he enjoys this he's convinced it makes him gay.
    Possibly he has a fascination with being a "receiver" as opposed to a "connector" or she convinced him to have a threesome with another man.
    He is assured in his heterosexuality and has found his faith shaken.

    There are sexual metaphors everywhere but the best one is the reference to Doris Day. Her name is synonymous with Rock Hudson because they were always paired together in romantic comedies. Rock was a deeply closeted homosexual.

    General Comment"freeze-dried with a new religion. and my teeth stuffed back in my head."

    I love this line. I love how the whole song is about squalor and discomfort, but with this line you can really feel it, your teeth stuffed back in your head. Weird...

    General CommentLike cyanogen said, it's about someone living their regular lives and somehow touching spitiual perfection, and not being able to deal with it- "I'm so dirty, and the light blinds my eyes." Sounds like the conversion experience of Apostle Paul. One of my favorite songs.

    General CommentNice one, whybother?.

    I was almost going to post that the song had no real meaning beyond themes of sex, porn and murkiness, but in one listening you've pulled me round to your view.

    I love this tune because of the bleak and murky vibe. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Does nobody else love the line "I get my kicks on channel 6"?

    General CommentAs far as I know, this song is about Underworld (illegally?) listening to people's phone conversation (channel 6? connector in. receiver out?). I learned this in an interview with them, and they said that it eventually became too much, because people laid their emotions bare, and there were all sorts of family secrets discussed (affairs, etc.).

    This interpretation of the song make more sense if you listen to the remix, which features fragments of sentences rather than these lyrics.

    General Commentresonator, that makes a lot of sense. i was inclined to agree with ANorthernSoul76 and say it had no particular meaning other than technological paranoia, sex and emotional dysfunction related to sex. Maybe this is them just venting their disgust about hearing all those sordid secrets and deceitful/duplicitous lives.
