Different lives
In different places
Familiar problems
Same old faces

Shuffle lives
Into wrong categories
Cross the wires
And fuse humanities

Watch the muscles twitch
For a brand new switch...

Scientist G.P.'s
With patient guinea pigs
Curing their headaches
With drastic side-effects

Watch the muscles twich
For a brand new switch?

Doctor rectorates
Condescending from on high
For all hallucinators
See druggist in the sky

Vicar experiments
But it's blasphemy
Dismissing thought of progress
As the mark of devilry

People walk
And even talk
People listen
Then they halt

Something blows up
Won't come down
Scattered muscles twitch
Too late to switch

    General CommentArguably the best album Siouxsie has ever put out, The Scream was once of the most influencial albums for the goth rock sound.
    I adore this track, and find it a fine way to wrap up the album; resonably low key, yet undeniably catchy.

    General CommentSIOUXSIE: "The vicar becomes the scientist and he applies his religion to science and the doctor becomes the religious person and applies his medicine to religion." Source: Melody Maker 21/10/78.

    SEVERIN: "It all comes down to the same thing - the hypocrisy of it all." Source: Melody Maker 21/10/78.
