Magnetism
Kayo Dot Lyrics


Steal through passageways
Like water through fountain pipes
The eyes of many roll from their holes
Out to the causeway
Leering along the crooked sidewalks
At all there is to see

Follow secret back streets
Flow ljust like water through a pipeline
Avoid the avenues teeming
Sun goes down behind landscape seeming
Alien in its nightmare evening

Step lightly over whores reaching
Up through cracks in the concrete
Grinning death masks of beauty living
Hands like scalpels reaching out
Desire killed the curious

Incision neat and clean
Magnetism spilling onto street
Less the distance between
Unfathomable points
Attraction in repulsion
Who ever wanted to live forever?

A strange dystopia, I think? ( referring to the lyrics. ) Some kind of technological catastrophe


Steel through passageways like water through fountain pipes
... avoid the avenues teeming
... Desire killed the curious
... Magnetism spilling onto street


The last line is kinda interesting. "Whoever wanted to live forever?" Sort of implies a connection. I do, anyway.

Steal through passageways
Like water through fountain pipes
The eyes of many roll from their holes
Out to the causeway
Leering along the crooked sidewalks
At all there is to see

Follow secret back streets
Flow ljust like water through a pipeline
Avoid the avenues teeming
Sun goes down behind landscape seeming
Alien in its nightmare evening

Step lightly over whores reaching
Up through cracks in the concrete
Grinning death masks of beauty living
Hands like scalpels reaching out
Desire killed the curious

Incision neat and clean
Magnetism spilling onto street
Less the distance between
Unfathomable points
Attraction in repulsion
Who ever wanted to live forever?

This is amazing. I liked the previous album but it had some low moments. I think you have perfected the style with this song. Already ordered the album!
