Digging Your Scene
The Blow Monkeys Lyrics


I just got your message baby
So sad to see you fade away
What in the world is this feeling
To catch a breath and leave me reeling
It'll get you in the end, its god's revenge

Oh I know I should come clean
But I prefer to deceive
Everyday I walk alone
And pray that god won't see me

I know its wrong, I know its wrong
Tell me why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby

They put you in a home to fill in
But I wouldn't call that living
I'm like a boy among man
I'd like a permanent friend

I'd like to think that I was just myself again
Why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby

I just got your message baby
So sad to see you fade away
I'm like a boy among men
I'd like a permanent friend
I'd like to think that I was just myself again

Why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby

Oh come home baby come on angel

Brilliant and brave song. One of the first that really addressed the huge HIV/AIDS crisis. Lyrics are sad and very real. People said HIV/AIDS was god's punishment and revenge for homosexuality and the secrecy that people with HIV had to live in.




I just got your message baby
So sad to see you fade away
What in the world is this feeling
To catch a breath and leave me reeling
It'll get you in the end, its god's revenge
Oh I know I should come clean
But I prefer to deceive
Everyday I walk alone
And pray that god won't see me
I know its wrong, I know its wrong
Tell me why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby
They put you in a home to fill in
But I wouldn't call that living
I'm like a boy among man
I'd like a permanent friend
I'd like to think that I was just myself again
Why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby
I just got your message baby
So sad to see you fade away
I'm like a boy among men
I'd like a permanent friend
I'd like to think that I was just myself again
Why is it I'm digging your scene
I know I'll die baby
Oh come home baby come on angel

Again, I can't remember if I had commented on this song before.

But, as a lifelong, hetero-Male, many people, back then, were all banding about the true, real, actual "meaning" of this song.

And many of us had come to the conclusion that it is a metaphorical, symbolic, tribute/remembrance to those who had initially contracted HIV and had then had died of, succumbed to, AIDS, per se.

Also, reminds me of the song by the Pet Shop Boys, "Being Boring," and a few lines from that song as well and on and in the same underlying, overt, or whatever, meanings regarding those who had died from, namely, AIDS, or those lines (paraphrased):

Could never grow up to be the creature that I was meant to be...

Some are here, and some are missing...

Etc...

As a black teen during the 80’s I was pulled to these white British groups clearly inspired by soulful R&B, yet would bring this cool, laid back, elegant swag to the game. The Blow Monkeys, Swing Out Sister, ABC, and even David Bowie during that decade. Shit was just exceptional. Thanks for this post.

@Elvar Masson Not fair Elvar,I get what he is his saying,I mean how many young black youths could pull themselves away from those early years of rap and hip hop long enough to listen to the other stuff.He was simply paying a compliment.

Robert Konieczko

You simply can't ignore the contribution R&B had on this genre of music.I think even Paul Weller split from the Jam to pursue greater soul,R&B inspired music and let us not forget Phil Lynotts contribution to rock,unarguably one of THE greatest rock voices EVER!

@Robert Konieczko Wide Receiver? Man, I haven't thought about that jam in almost 40 years!
