"Dark Entries" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
Caressing bent up to the jug again
With sheaths and pills
Invading all those stills
In a hovel of a bed

I will scream in vain
Oh please miss Lane
Leave me with some pain
Went walking through this city's neon lights

In fear of disguising my warping seathing
Pressure lines and graceless heirs
Intangible of price
Trying so hard to find what? What was right

I came upon your room it stuck into my head
We leapt into the bed degrading even lice
You took delight in taking down
All my shielded pride

Until exposed became my darker side
Puckering up and down some avenue of sin
Too cheap to ride they're worth a try
If only for the old times cold times

Don't go waving your pretentious love
He's soliciting on his tan brown brogues
Girating through some lonesome devils row
Pinpointing well meaning upper class prey

Of walking money checks possessing holes
He often sleekly offers his services
Exploitation of his finer years
Work with loosely woven fabrics

Of lonely office clerks
Any lay suffices his dollar green eye

    General CommentWoW this is rough. Absolutely brilliant lyrics; I'd rather read this than most of the poetry that's published in books.

    And yeah, the lyrics are different when he says them. For instance, he doesn't say "graceless heirs" in the second verse. I don't know what he says, which kind of annoys me.

    General CommentI love it when Bauhaus gets seedy and sleazy. Could it be about superman? I mean the miss Lane bit plus the bits which suggest hiding and disguise. Maybe the dark side of someone who tries to be perfect. Yes there is some hints of prostitution.

    General CommentMy first Bauhaus song. Sooooo good.

    "Don't go waving you pretentious lo-ahv!"

    And yeah, it's about prostitution.

    General CommentI believe it's analyzing how taboo carnal desires can be, and how most people try to quench their thirsts without being seen, in fear of social rejection.

    General CommentIt's amazing how Peter Murphy can take something so crude and make it sound so good.

    General CommentYeah, prostitution. But the lyrics here are the version printed in the album cover. What Peter Murphy really sings is a little bit different in some places...
