The line is "I sit on the floor, so she walks on the ceiling'.

That is grammatically correct, someone just made up the 'acid' line to create ambiguity.

There. 90 percent of Von's mumblings explained in one go.

mmm, I like the "acid" version better, since it is in my system for so many years now Laughing

Especially since "acid" is the right lyric. Laughing

What's that lyric in the Portastudio Demo?

At first I thought it was "and the people in the houses of the holy say nothing at all" which lead me to introduce a lyric from Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy into The Mumbles' version but now I hear "and the people in the house of their god say nothing at all"

Question


"and the people with their houses and their gods know nothing at all"

pro'lly referring the all the people who are "well off" who are completely oblivious to what drugs in dancings was doing to the yought and homeless people..

in many parts, "the body electric" can be seen as a sinonym for drugs..

I don't have a linky for it at the mo, but there was an interview from 82 where Von makes reference to the "acid on the floor" line, discusses his liking for being physically out of it, and mentions how some mornings he wakes up and looks at the wall and doesn't know if it's the wall or the ceiling.

So my take is that BE is actually about the aftereffects of a Top Nite Out.
