all the curtain leads to fever.

this one is from the good old Humbug b-side. an unforgettable era of the Arctic Monkeys.

You thrive on dancing in our laps
Before the more familiar chaps
And all the curtain leads to fever

We watched the womanizer cry
And in the last sip you and I
Declared we might require a breather

I am the truth true through and I
Convey excitement fluently
As solid as I can busk shock

With well presented merry men
And I know all too well
I shouldn’t break the key off in the lock

[Chorus]
And the tumble splits the fray
Revealing silk and fit
In the fright lined dining room
Throw a gaze towards them while they feast

[Verse 2]
The days drag their heels
When you’re not there to crack the whip
And the weeks wait to burst like a sache of brats

The old pantomime villian follows my coat
And he hides where it hangs and he spies through the slots

And meanwhile in the desert’s only costume shop
The cowels hide and wait to rot away
The identities of the willing

[Verse 3]
Drowned bags of sugar in the night
Rocketing shutter doors despite
The shop not opening for hours

You can itch, flap and whistle
And try to avoid the top
As I scribbled over dribble
You were snoring, showing off

[Chorus]
The tumble splits the frays
Revealing silk and fit
In the fright lined dining room
Throw a gaze towards them while they feast

There’s better things you’re gonna get into and I wanna be there too.

I wanna see somethin’ that used to be in your eyes again
I’m waiting to see it
You know it’s only a question of when
Cause I know how much I’m missin’ heaven
You know that it’s missin’

And only you know
Where you have been to
And only you know
What you have been through
There’s better things you’re gonna get into
And I wanna be there too
Yes I do..

I know it’s not easy for you to start to believe again
And when the day comes,
Don’t let yourself be deceived ….. again
Cause I know that you’ve been waiting, been such a long time
That you’ve been waiting

And only you know
Where you have been to
And only you know
What you have been through
There’s better things you’re gonna get into
And i wanna be there too

Cause i know
That you’ve been waiting, been such a long time
You’ve been waiting

And only you know
Where you have been to
And only you know
What you have been through
There’s better things you’re gonna get into
And I wanna be there too

You know i do…

Shake love’s steady hand.

Black as a beacon
In a river of shimmering fog
Yes she was

If you were heat seeking
She was hard to ignore
Yes she was

And she snapped
Wing mirrors off a Cadillac
With a particular pretty one

And that meant she never had to strain her back
When she was putting her lippy on

Well Time tastes bland
When she’s not around
And you’d sit and you’d sink and approach the brink
Before she showed you how to shake love’s steady hand

And she snapped
Wing mirrors off a Cadillac
With a particular pretty one

And that meant she never had to strain her back
When she was putting her lippy on

Shake love’s steady hand
Shake love’s steady –
She floats like an niccy rush but she stings like a bee
flat

The Blond-o sonic shimmer trap
And she snapped the wing mirrors off a Cadillac
With a particular pretty ones

And that meant she never had to strain her back
When she was putting her lippy on

Why don’t you let her drive my train?

παρανοϊκά b-side από αρκτικές μαϊμούδες!

My baby wants to drive the train
But don’t you let her, don’t you let her touch the tracks
I said my baby wants to drive the train
Well all aboard yeah, and don’t forget to mind the gap
Don’t you let her, don’t you know
She’s sick and tired of
Being in the background, the passenger
Let her drive the train, oh!

Choo Choo!
Why don’t you let her drive the train? oh…
Choo Choo!
Why don’t you let her drive the train, yeah

She’s setting off from platform four
Make your way down, we’ll shut the door bout quart to five
I said she’s setting off from platform four
And they’ve decided that they’re gonna let her drive

Don’t you let her, don’t you know
She’s sick and tired of
Being in the background, the passenger
Let her drive the train, oh!

Choo Choo!
Why don’t you let her drive the train, oh…
Choo Choo!
Why don’t you let her drive my train, yeah

Choo Choo!
Choo Choo!
Choo Choo!
Choo Choo!

Behold, there’s a crook in the hammock plays!

Καλή χρονιά σε όλους!

Trudging through the morning,
The trap with the trampoline under his arm,
Shifts past your whiskers, so stark is the charm but the barking alarm,
Waits coiled ’til the corner is turned.

And the bicycle wheels all struggle to move round,
In your muddy mind, blatantly caked and,
Unwilling to wind uncooperative time,
So he sits on the springs ’til the muck goes dry

All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall,
All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the…

What came first, the chicken or the dickhead?
Split sleep reaps rewards from ill fitting thoughts,
And twilight forced you to go on a walk,
Your legs start running and your head gets caught

Canopy 19,
It’s perfectly placed for the reasonably frightening,
Fall from the aftertaste, you’ll have to slip away,
I am unhappy to say, behold is the crook in the hammock plays…

All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall,
All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall…

Behold, there’s a crook in the hammock plays

Cruelly with the base of the scales,
And fiddles with the feet on a balancing act,
Gagged, bound and crafting a tale,
Trailing wrapped in a gasp,

Cruelly with the base of the scales,
And fucking fiddles with the feet on a balancing act,
You were gagged, bound and crafting a tale,
Trailing wrapped in a gasp.

All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall,
All the pretty visitors came and waved their arms and cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall.

Pinned down by the dark.

arctic qotsa.
enjoy.

Pinned down by the dark

When fighting with my sheets
Nearly crying in my sleep
Yes I’m battling that well told gripe
the most retrainting type
you should have racing stripes
The way you keep me in pursuit
Shopping the heal of your boot
And you press it in my chest and you make me wheeze
Then to my knees you do promote me

I’m Pinned down by the dark

A N I M A L
Makes my head pirouette
More than i would be willing to confess
D A N G E R O U S

Tonight it fidgets through
Before it’ll soon revert to you
I’m bought as bashful as a tribal dance
the first and final chance
and ‘course the audience
Are frighteners and fiends
Divided up into two teams
When the acrobat fell off the beam
She broke everyone’s heart

I’m pinned down by the dark

A N I M A L makes my head pirouette, more than i would be willing to confess
D A N G E R O U S
D A N G E R O U S
The most unsuitable pet
‘ts been long enough so lets
Make a mess lioness

I’m pinned down by the dark
I’m pinned down by the dark

D A N G E R O U S
A N I M A L

D A N G E R O U S
A N I M A L

Bite the lightning and tell me how it tastes.

Break a mirror roll the dice,
Run with scissors through a chip pan fire fight.
Go into business with a grizzly bear,
But just don’t sit down ’cause I’ve moved your chair.

Find a well known hardman and start a fight,
Wear your shell suit on bonfire night.
Fitting a circular hole with a peg that’s square,
But just don’t sit down ’cause I’ve moved your chair.

Bite the lightning and tell me how it tastes,
Kung fu fighting on your roller skates,
Do the macarena in the devils lair
But just don’t sit down ’cause I’ve moved your chair.
