lyrics

They gambol around like drunken satellites

carrying pictures so heavy they drop like flies

gazing open wide, dogs in summertime

so bloody tender as they draw battle lines



Totally unshocked by elements obscene

they’re just singing the sweet songs

and everything smells like bread and tastes of honey

they play who’s halos are bigger, they can’t decide



Honey, I don’t know why you wanna carry a picture of a drunken satellite



They don’t know what the fight is for, they don’t know

when the innocents go to war



oh you’re mixed up honey, you don’t know what you got



Kicking around a mixed up scene

thinking who’s in dutch and who’s livin’ on top

nobody needs a thing when it’s aflame, havin’ a good time

set up, set up horizons, set up horizons

territories and lines going out, lines coming in

lines got the best of em



oh time will tell what they’re throwing away

what don’t fit in the picture

forever’s a long long time



Honey, lovers are roomers, they pay as they go

they’re headed to fry like death row killers

they all the same



They don’t know what the fight is for, they don’t know

when the innocents go to war
