You are the melting men
You are the situation
There is no time to breathe
And yet one single breath
Leads to an insatiable desire
Of suicide... in sex

So many blazing orchids
Burning in your throat
Making you choke
Making you sigh
Sigh in tiny deaths

[Chorus]
So Melt!
My lover, melt!
She said melt!
My lover, melt!

You are the melting men
And as you melt
You are beheaded
Handcuffed (in lace and blood and sperm)

Swimming in poison
Gasping in the fragrance
Sweat carves a screenplay
of discipline...and devotion

[Chorus]

Can you see?
See into the back of a long, black car
Pulling away from the funeral of flowers
With my hand between your legs
Melting...

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented on this song yet, It is my favourite Banshees song. It is also one the contender for the title of sexiest song ever...just hearing Siouxsie's voice on this gives me chills.

    I'm not completley sure what this is about. A friend of mine is convinced it's about murdering a lover. Another thinks it's about AIDS (which isn't entirelky outside the realms of possibility).

    Either way, I adore this song.
