you came one night, turned my tide
blood red moon that you are
now i sit here, what can i do
wrapped in feathers and tar
you clutched my back and you bit my neck
stroke me down to the floor
you burn my brain, lay me in chains
and i want more

i'm on my knees, can't you see
i don't know what to do
can't you heal me, can't you feel
that my heart belongs to you

it seems so wrong, that i sing this song
could it be, babe, could it be that you feel the same
but let me tell you, and taht ain't no excuse
where both in the same situation
under each others sign like partners in crime
and nobody needs to tell me
that this ain't the end of the world
it's just one of those crazy moments of the late, late 20th century
but you visit my sweetest dreams and you kindle all of my phantasies
and you're right, it's your name that i scream
don't you feel it, don't you hear me baby...

i'm on my knees, can't you see..

you came one night, turned my tide
blood red moon that you are, now i sit here, what can i do
wrapped in feathers and tar
you paint my lips and you sank my ships and i, i love you so, ilove you so
you see me pray, please go away
no, don't go, don't go, cause i want more..

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.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
