(brother there's a little sale)
(on, er, on a vest)
(at ha, Walmart )
(9$)
(yeah)
(8 something)
(nice little vest, light)
Click [Repeatx4]
I need sugar
I need a little water of sugar
I get thoughts about you
And the night wants me like a little lost child
Locked in the safe place
Looking out the window
The dark move fast pass the window
The dark on the other side of the locked door
Click [Repeat x3]
My thumbs on a Tetris keyring
Moving in brilliant timing
You pick up the phone
And I'm imagining it out
Click [Repeat x4]
Tiny wires in her ears
Sliding through the city
Tiny wires in her ears
Sliding through the city
Click [Repeat x8]

(expected early in the morning)
(expected early in the morning)

Rising in the morning to speak to you
Beneath the feet of the city

Click
You disconnect from me
Click
When you come to take your century
Telephone breath between us
The will of the world is between us
Only theses wires
Dust between the wires and green glass
In the distance
I am your tourist

(take you there in the morning)
(take you there in the morning)
(I'm not pulling in returning)
(I'm not pulling in returning)
(I'm not pulling in returning)

(yep I've searched for this part hang around the same stones)
(hang right there with them)
(well I've never fished here)
(but I've caught beaucoup fish in reverend Burton)
(I never did catch fish)
(beaucoup fish in reverend Burton)
(did check a tender slab)
(did you hear of that? Crazy dog)
Click click click
Sugar sugar
I want sugar
I want sugar
Sugar
I want sugar
I will I want sugar
I want sugar
I want sugar
I want sugar
I want sugar
I want sugar
Sugar
I want sugar
Sugar sugar

(take you there in the morning)
(take you there in the morning)

    General CommentAbsolutley adore this song, To me its about a couple whose miles apart and the thoughts and the scenery around each of them before they get together.

    One correction to add though I think:

    Click when you gonna take your century

    Should be

    Click when you gonna take your sanctuary

    However I have been wrong before ;-)

    Great track if you are going to meet your lover in another city... somewhere :-)

    General Comment'Sanctuary' would make more sense, but these are Underworld lyrics we're talking about, ha (see also: Cowgirl. ICE CREAM!!!).

    According to Deep Blue Morocco (the lyrics site) it is 'century'.

    General Commentsire of black eyess, interesting you say it reminds you of two fisherman, as the spoken intro is apparently a recording of a Cajun fisherman that Underworld met on their travels.

    General CommentNot sure about the meaning. But you know that situation, when certain feelings are dominating your mind, and you briefly allow yourself to envision the whole world through that lens, it's almost surreal, and you're there but only observing. That's how it makes me feel. Dave Seaman's remix on one of the Global Underground series enhances this too, I think.

    General CommentI believe the word 'surreal' as kaat said, is the word that suits this song the best
