"Icing Sugar" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
Your delicious
Dreaming
Slack jawed
Green eyed
Rub my nose in
Icing sugar
Smooth as
When this cold and deadly
Blade
Kissed the fruit
So soft
And gently breathing
Under your skin
Oh I'll empty you
I'll empty you
As empty as a boy can be
As empty
As a boy can be

    General Commentahh! i adore this song. the intro sounds really pretty too, with the saxaphones or whatever insturment that is.
    i think that the beginning could be sung really, like, viciously, and it would sound cool,esp. the 'slack jawed...green eyed" part
    im not sure why, just my opinion.

    General CommentMr smiith cited it as "DRUGS!!" most likely cocaine. "Icing Sugar" is the British term for confectioner's, or powdered sugar. The line "when this cold & deadly/ blade/ kisses the fruit." mostlikely refers to the "cutting" or mixing of the coke, often done with razorblades, although playing cards and even fingernails can be utilised.

    General CommentAlso, if you listen closely, there is a brief sample of what sounds like a musicbox at the very end. Genius.
