"Electric Fence" as written by and Temistoclas Hugo Rutili....
Lit a blue tip match off the white in your eye
It's apples and cigarettes on cold water drive
Give your belly to the lions and your throat to all their babies
The power washer screams like a panther
Your rope and scar and rabbit hearts
Jesus drains electric fences to fill you again
Sailor's mouth and falling brail
Don't fall away, don't fall away
You sleep like an angel with sparrows beneath your eyelids
Wash it down in a fountain, lean into the kill
The mayflies all explode when they come to the coil at the driving range under blocks of fake light
A broken feel, electric fence
Don't fall away, don't fall away

    General Commenta lot of califone songs seem like really random, abstract fragments that are put together to form a song. i think this song shows how wonderfully it works.

    although, i thought i heard "off the white of your eye" and "fall in brail"? also just "wash in a fountain."
    also, i thought "a broken feel" was "a broken field" but feel sounds good.

    General CommentI agree that analyzing the lyrics is usually stupid to do with Califone....the sentences and fragments just paint pictures that create moods.
