"Lunar Camel" as written by and Severin Sioux....
Chasing a monsoon over the dune
Oh fly me to the moon, get me there soon
I don't have to prove I'll last longer than you
One hump or two

Any handicap will do against you
I'll be there soon-over the moon
I'll be there soon-over the moon
Chasing a monsoon over the dune
Oh fly me to the moon, get me there soon.

    General CommentI once read in a an official Siouxsie scrapbook that it was about a dream she had, however all dreams have meanings don't they?

    General CommentThis and Desert Kisses are an example of Siouxsie and Severen writing individual songs about the exact same topic, in this case, The High Priestess of the Tarot, or at least using the symbolism thereof. From the Book of Thoth (bibliotecapleyades.net/crowley/…_):

    This card is referred to the letter Gimel, which means a Camel. (The symbolism of the Camel is explained later.)

    The card refers to the Moon. The Moon (being the general feminine symbol, the symbol of the second order corresponding to the Sun as the Yoni does to the Lingam) is universal, and goes from the highest to the lowest. It is a symbol which will recur frequently in these hieroglyphs. But in the earlier Trumps the concern is with Nature above the Abyss; the High Priestess is the first card which connects the Supernal Triad with the Hexad; and her path, as shown in the diagram, makes a direct connection between the Father in his highest aspect, and the Son in his most perfect manifestation. This path is in exact balance in the middle pillar. There is here, therefore, the purest and most exalted conception of the Moon. (At the other end of the scale is Atu xviii, q.v.)

    General CommentIt's a song about sex. Monsoon refers to the male orgasm. Flying to/over the moon refers to the female orgasm. The song is about the female getting to an orgasm after the male.

    Song MeaningSIOUXSIE: "People who consider dreams to be nothing to do with reality are being narrow-minded. At least a quarter of your life is dreaming; how can you dismiss it? You're a fool not to be affected by it. It's usually quite harrowing, and it's usually telling you something..." Source: Melody Maker 10/01/87.

    The working title of this song was 'Arabia'. Source: The File Phase One.
