Yes, in London the words are more intelligible. Sounds like a song just as exciting as Show Me ... Very Happy ...

This song suffered major changes last night innit?

Ben is no longer playing the natural harmonics on the main riff, we have now some words on the 'break', and I might be wrong here, but I feel like they even changed the chorus lyrics a wee bit too.

Quote:

Carl Mullen Just now
How I hear Better Reptile:

BETTER REPTILE

See you sat here, see you swim,

your swollen lips and your rainbow hips,

crawl back on the eclipse,

crawl inside and stay,

Close the air, close the air, close the air another scare

Close the air, close the air, close the air to shed your skin

BE A BETTER REPTILE,
SHED YOUR SKIN,
BE A BETTER REPTILE,
SHED YOUR SKIN,
BE A BETTER REPTILE,
SHED YOUR SKIN,
BE A BETTER REPTILE,

Close the air, close the air, close the air to another scare,

Close the air, close the air, close the air to shed your skin

BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER, BETTER, BETTER,

Gold in the face, gold in the face, gold in the face, gold in the face

SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN
BE A BETTER REPTILE
SHED YOUR SKIN

BE A BETTER

Will check later myself. Mr. Green

near meth experience:
your neon hips

more recently:
your rainbow hips

another scare -> another sin

Close the air -> close again (or closing in?)

Oh, good point, I didn't do the AB ones so it could have changed.

Second “closing in”, for another sin, imo.
Also, regrettably, second “cold” instead of “gold”. 😉

I thought the opening lines might be

I see you slither, I see you slip
You (something) on lips, you read on hips



"Another sin" or "northern scene"? Laughing


Any ideas as to what it means though? I guess it could either be an insult -if you're a reptile, make like a proper one and shed your slimy skin- or a benign call to transcend yourself/the past. If it's the 1st, maybe the association of reptiles with politics since the Reptile House suggests who the song might be meant for.

Very definitely "cold in her veins" rather than "gold in the face".

Just logged in for the first time in months simply to say: This song managed to revitalise my enthusiasm for the sisters. I adore it, it's amazing. and the Antwerp show is by far my favourite performance as of yet. Anybody got a recording from last night? Smile

I am hearing this as a thematic sequel to Anaconda.
