body electric (diff lyricks)

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Portastudio Demo, 1982:

Through the cables and the underground,
The faceless breathless calls.
This is Babel, sensurround,
This place is death with walls…

Too much contact and no more feeling,
The sound around them all.
Acid on the floor so she walk on the ceiling,
And the people in the houses of their God say nothing at all…


It's mostly the same as the single version, I'm not 100% certain the final line is correct but it sounds right.

yeah.. it's 99% same i think.. but can't make out the final phrases near the end..
i don't sleep, so i don't dream, so i don't wake up frightened...

Huh. You know, I've always wondered about that line, and (from memory, it's been a while since I listened to it), you may be right, Rob.. or at least quite close.
