"Fascination Street" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
Oh it's opening time
Down on Fascination Street
So let's cut the conversation
And get out for a bit
Because I feel it all fading and paling
And I'm begging
To drag you down with me
To kick the last nail in
Yeah! I like you in that
Like I like you to scream
But if you open your mouth
Then I can't be responsible
For quite what goes in
Or to care what comes out
So just pull on your hair
Just pull on your pout
And let's move to the beat
Like we know that it's over
If you slip going under
Slip over my shoulder
So just pull on your face
Just pull on your feet
And let's hit opening time
Down on Fascination Street

So pull on your hair
Pull on your pout
Cut the conversation
Just open your mouth
Pull on your face
Pull on your feet
And let's hit opening time

Down on Fascination Street

    General CommentChimaira does a horrible cover of this song. It was never meant to be done in a metal version. They completely ruin it by making it heavy, screaming parts, and they even throw off the rhythm in a lot of parts. RavenGT you are absolutely wrong, it is not about a doomed relationship, it is about New Orleans and the way Rober Smith (the original writer of the song) felt about performing in front of so many people. Slipmaira, your friend who is a Cure fan is an idiot, this is an absolutely shitty cover. Period.
