To sow seeds in barren fields When there's no more fertile ground To bear the fragile worlds within Through the ruined one that surrounds Break the shackles of my past Give me precious things that do not last (and succor for the homeless ones bring fire down on Babylon) Heal And destroy Lift me up Bring it down And we may suffer And we must die And we may suffer And we may die Come weary child: You've touched the stars but you did not move them Now it's time to cut out your heart And be a god in the kingdom of the dead Or to raise your face And make them move. And we may suffer And you may die Yes, you will suffer And you're going to die So sing now: I'll be your eyes if you won't see, I'll be your heart if you can't feel Now we'll see who burns the brightest The brightest of them all Send me their sons and prodigal daughters Render up to me their lost and stray Give lust and life to our dances, flight to our fancies Give me courage for my passions and my pain And this will be my art: to feel alive Break my heart Sell my body or my soul Spite their laws Fight the odds Smite the gods Starve myself Freeze myself Burn myself Kill myself Kill myself To feel... Nail me to you I will ride you like a nightmare I will drive you past all love or pain or fear I will escort you to the end Take me inside you I'll be the master in your mirror I will drive you until everything else disappears I'll be with you to the end Everything you want to feel Everything you want to taste

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
