The Raven
Stranglers - The Raven




Fly Straight With Perfection
Find Me A New Direction
You Never Realised The Things They Say
We'll Never Realise Until We're Dead

The Fires They Burn Along The Coast Of Triumphs
The Ebony Embittered Souls Of Children
We'll Seek Another Way Before Too Long
But Will You Stop My Wind Before I'm Gone

And When You Find Me All Alone
Your World Has Never Been My Own

And When You Find Me
And When You Find Me All Alone
Your World Has Never Been My Own

My Friend Your Black And When You Fly You're Wild
I Am White Sometimes I Behave Just Like A Child
The Northern Seas Are Cold But They're Our Own
We'll Sail Your Southern Seas Before Too Long

When I Was A Viking
My Friend He Was The Ravenback to top
Dead Los Angeles
Stranglers - Dead Los Angeles




The Plastic Peaches There
On Concrete Beaches There
You See The Leeches There
You See The Leeches There
They're Soft Marshmallow There
It's Oh So Shallow There
In Dead Los Angeles
In Dead Los Angeles
The Dredged Of Mastodon
Has Got His Glasses On
He's Never Seen The Shit
From The La Brea Pit

The Lunar Base Camp There
With Burning Midnight Lamp
They Call It Frisbeeland
It's Just A Disneyland
Android Americans
Live In The Ruins There
In Dead Los Angeles
In Dead Los Angeles
The Dredged Of Mastodon
Has Got His Glasses On
He's Never Seen The Shit
From The La Brea Pit
From The La Brea Pit
From The La Brea Pit
From The La Brea Pit

From The La Brea Pit
From The La Brea Pit
From The La Brea Pit

They Get The Tremors There
Been Give Babylon
Plenty Of Companies
Such Lonely Company
I Hear A Symphony
Of Lonely Tympanis
In Dead Los Angeles
In Dead Los Angeles
The Dredged Of Mastodon
Has Got His Glasses On
He's Never Seen The Shit
From The La Brea Pitback to top
Ice
Stranglers - Ice




Die Like Cherry Blossom
Hagakure With Perfume
Deadly With Make Up On But It Just
Won't Do

I Have Ice Instead Of Heartburn
She Has Ice On Her Fingers
We Have Ice In The Oven But It Just
Won't Do

If There's No Reason For Your Words
Then Your Silence Aint Absurd
If There's No Reason For Your Breathing Then It Just
Won't Do

There Is Ice In My Vision
There Is Ice Always In Season
I Want Cold Air Not Your Treason
It Won't Do

Hagakure With Perfume...back to top
Baroque Bordello
Stranglers - Baroque Bordello




See A Picturesque Decay There
Something For All Time To Tell
See The Woman Of Your Dreams There
In A Baroque Bordello

Swing Doors And A Blind Venetian
Keep Her In A Walnut Shell
Has To Rub Your Eyes To Bathe You
In A Baroque Bordello

All The Words Are Written For You
Finds Your Heaven Finds You Hell
Finds Your Love But Keeps It Hidden
In A Baroque Bordello

Seven Days And Seven Nights Spent
Sleeping In Her Wishing Well
Climb Her Rope And Find Her Trailer
In A Baroque Bordelloback to top
Nuclear Device
Stranglers - Nuclear Device




First And Last Men Walk This Earth
But Only A Few Survive
I'm The Wizard Of Aus
And I've Got It All Planned
For My First Nuclear Device

I Don't Really Care About Which Way You Vote
Cos My Gerrymander Works Out Fine
I Sell Desert Stretches Like A Big Rubber Glove
To Japan For A Nuclear Device

Nuclear Device
Nuclear Device
Nuclear Device

If I Could Get Lucky I'd Secede From The States
I'd Buy The Country At An Incredible Rate

Brisbane Men Stay At Home At Night
Cos I Outlawed All Of The Vice
I'm The Wizard Of Aus
And I've Rolled Up The Streets
Dreaming Of A Nuclear Device
If I Could Get Lucky I'd Go Out On My Own
And Sell Australia The Rice (Rest Of Aus There Rice)

Nuclear Device
Nuclear Device
Nuclear Device

If I Could Get Lucky I'd Secede From The States
I'd Buy The Country At An Incredible Rate
If I Could Get Lucky I'd Secede From The States
I'd Buy The Country At An Incredible Rate
If I Could Get Lucky I'd Secede From The States
I'd Buy The Country At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate
At An Incredible Rate

Way Down Under Australia
Very Different From Over Here
Getting Rid The Strangles One By One
Buy Cheap Land For Uranium
It Reminds Me Of Sweden
Got The Same Sort Of Freeze On
All The Animals Look So Strange
All Victims Of A Testing Range
Of A Testing Range
Of A Testing Range
Of A Testing Range
Of A Testing Rangeback to top
Shah Shah a Go Go
Stranglers - Shah Shah A Go Go




Did You Hear About The Man
Used To Live Out In Iran
He Was Luxury's Greatest Fan
People Ate Out Of His Hand
People Ate Out Of His Hand
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go

Sold The English All Their Oil
Made The People Work The Soil
Thought His Kind Had Got It Made
But His Kind Just Had To Pay To Fade
But His Kind Just Had To Fade
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go
Shah Shah A Go Go

Then A Priest In Paris France
Made The People Get Up And Da Da Dance
Sold Cassettes For 60p
Said He'd set The People Free
We Shall See We Shall See

Don't Bring Harry
Stranglers - Don't Bring Harry




Harry And Me We Live In A Dream
With A Friend Like Him I Don't Need Enemies
I Don't Know Where Morning Is
It Might Not Come Today
That's The Trouble When Harry's Around
He Forces Me To Play

I Should Have Rufused To Meet This Midnight Cheat
He Likes To Prey On My Mind With His Own Special Treat
I Don't Know Where Morning Comes
It Might Not Come Today
Harry Likes To Play All Night
I'll Do What Harry Says

Don't Bring Harry
I Don't Need Him Around
Don't Bring Harry
I Don't Need Him Around

Ahhh... You've Met Harry
I Can See By Your Eyes
If Once There Was Life There
Now There's Compromise

Harry Is A Beast Of Luxury
He Just Wants My Body And Soul Leaves The Bones Behind

Ahhh... You've Met Harry
I Can See By Your Eyes
If Once There Was Action
Now There Is No Life

Don't Bring Harry
I Don't Need Him Around
Don't Bring Harry
I Don't Need Him Aroundback to top
Duchess
Stranglers - Duchess




Duch Of The Terrace Never Grew Up
I Hope She Never Will
Broken Down TV Sits In The Corner
Pictures Standing Still
Standing Still

Duch Of The Terrace Knows All Her Heritage
Says She's Henry's Kid
Knows All Her History In The Family
Needs A Man God Forbid
God Forbid

And It Sounds Like An Empty House
Standing Still
And It's Quieter Than A Mouse
Standing Still

Duch Of The Terrace Never Grew Up
I Hope She Never Will
Says She's An Heiress Sits In Her Terrace
Says She's Got Time To Kill
Time To Kill

And The Rodneys Are Queuing Up
God Forbid
And They All Want To Win The Cup
God Forbid

Duchess Duchess

And The Rodneys Are Queuing Up

Meninblack
Stranglers - Meninblack




We're Not Here To Destroy
We Are Here To Employ
We Have Come To Make You Funtion
So We Can Eat You At Our Funtions
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack

Information Can Destroy
So We'll Treat You Just Like Toys
Healthy Livestock So We Can Eat
Human Flesh Is Porky Meat Heeeeee...
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack
We Don't Approve Of Artificial Food
We Grow You For Our Own Good

First We Gave You The Wheel
Then We Made You Live To Kill
So The Best Stock Will Survive
We Eat You All Alive
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack
We Are The Meninblack

Genetix
Stranglers - Genetix




See The Little Nuclei
Bursting Full Of Information
There's A Need To Regulate
Bring It Down To Cells And Plasma

I Tell You What They're Gonna Do
Started Doing It Already
Got To Find Something New
Looking For It In Genetix

Found A New Game To Play
They Think It's Impossible To Loose
Messing Round At Playing God
Easy Way To Play Genetix

The First Law Of Segregation States That
Any Gamete Male Or Female Can Carry The
Determinent Gene Of Only One Pair Of
Alternative Characteristics.
The Second Law Of Free Assortment States That
In A Cross Involving One Pair Of
Alternative Characteristics
The Characteristics Will Segregate In The
Second Filial Generation
In The Relative Proporations Of 9:3:3:1back to top
