The day drags by like a wounded animal
The approaching disease, 92 degrees
The blood oin our veins and the brains in our head
The approaching unease, 92 degrees
Long ago in the headlines, they noticed it too
But too late for the loved ones and nearly for you .....

Shaky lines on the horizon
Snakey lines invade each person
Watch the red line creeping upwards
Watch the sanity line weaken
The volcanic depths of Hades' ocean
Bubble under, these crazed eruptions
It wriggles and wrythes and bites within,
Just below the sweating sun

I wondered when this would happen again
Now I watch the red line, reach that number again
The blood in our veins and the brains in our head .....

Drink the water with jagged glass
Eat the cactus with bleeding mouth
Not 91 or 93, but 92 Fahrenheit degrees

Shaky lines on the horizon
Snakey lines invade each person
Not 91 or 93, but 92 Fahrenheit degrees

    General CommentSIOUXSIE: "That was sparked off by a short story I read where crimes would escalate when the temperature reached 92 degrees. It's about the rising panic of the people who know what's going to happen as the temperature rises towards that number. I mentioned it to Steve, who'd seen some alien from outer space film, in which, right at the end, a sheriff says: 'Yeah, just about at this temperature everybody goes crazy'." Source: NME 28/09/85.
