In the high life I've got this feeling now
I've got this horrible feeling
On the escalator they took it out on him
As the ridiculous world went by

Oh he is gone
He's my insatiable one

On the high wire dressed in a leotard
There wobbles one hell of a retard
On the escalator we shit paracetamol
As the ridiculous world goes by

Oh he is gone
He's my insatiable one
And he was my inflatable one

    General CommentI guess it was inspired on Bret Easton Ellis' "Less than Zero" a Brett's favourite so includes all above refered: Brett's new kind of life, drugs, raves, anal sex, living on the edge... as that ridiculous world goes by

    General CommentBrett's said both that it's himself from Justine's perspective (in Love and Poison) and 'gay animal sex' (in Introducing the Band). I can't help wondering how those two reconcile.

    General CommentTo quote Mr. Anderson, "This is a song about gay anal sex."

    I find it hard to disagree with him.

    General CommentI dunno, maybe you're thinking of "the drowners."

    General CommentThis song is about Brett from the perspective of Justine. The inflatable bit is a complete throwaway.

    General CommentI love this song--but I think it doesn't mean much of anything sensible. More like a surrealist painting, if you ask me.

    QuestionI think Salvador Dali wanted a conjoined schizoid-analysis to render his Persistence of Memory incalculable. He found it in Sleep
