Sleep on the Left Side
Cornershop Lyrics


Sleep on the left side
Leave the right side free
Hope gets salted
As those around you leave

we're gonna let it up
Like India House on fire
We're gonna let it go
And let it go higher
Let it go

Sleep on the left side
Houcam is our call
We're gonna take it
That virgin fall

there's gonna be some
When we let it up and let it breathe
And all the holes doused with grief
And planets up and time to leave

No Asian fire will leave us dire
Born again to Asian lion
There comes no telling how it will be
What's turned to smoke was in our hearts
And planets up, what we have lost

Foot racing from kitchens
Down alleys through gullys
Meeting every second hour
Never to come to terms with the [Incomprehensible]

Foot racing to Putabin Key
'Cause there's too much going on
To jeer on green goddesses
Local dignitaries and labor counselors
Always in touch by way of the community organ
We're about to be orphaned

Sleep on the left side
Keep the sword hand free
Whatever is gonna be
Is gonna be

For the 7th time
Without tumbling desire
Easy disease
We're gonna let it known
And let it go slow, let it go

Sleep on the left side
Sleep on the left side

Some sounds, some burdens can release
Some sounds, some burdens can release
Some sounds, some burdens
Sleep on the left side

Magnificent, and vastly under-rated.

​ DamascusHounds and KT Eff, I can tell you exactly what it's about. I'm not kidding, this is exactly what it is. The lyrics open with
"Sleep on the left side, leave the right side free.
Hope gets salted as those around you leave"

Sleeping on the left side relieves wind pain. With the relief, hope of fresh air is salted and those around you leave because wind smells.

"we're gonna let it up
Like India House on fire
We're gonna let it go
And let it go higher
Let it go"

He may have eaten some rich food and it burns a bit, noxious gasses rise in the atmosphere.

Read through the lyrics and though they are a bit abstract it's a certainty that it's a song to help people with wind pain, hence the relaxing atmosphere to the tune as a whole.

Do you know Polica's tune Dark Star? It's about constipation.

"What is mine
What is all mine
Not my child not my child
Hold you just a little while
I'm gonna give her all my life
Until she's until she's
Swooped up by the sea of love"

It's her's, her creation but not her child, the sea of love is the water in the toilet.
Then, it's the defecation singing the chorus, referring to the doctor as a man

"Ain't a man in this world who can pull me down
From my dark star dark star
I will remain there
Its done me good so far"

So clever. So talented. So underrated.

DamascusHounds

jemimallah I just love it because of the groove. But now that you mention it, what is it about?

jemimallah

its largely underrated because 99% of people who have heard this song dont get what its about.

amazing 90's i introduced cornershop to my friends.. we loved it ever since..... now we are in our 40's getting old , but we played some tunes from corner shop and reminecsed.

+selicleto I agree.  I bought the CD about a year after it debuted.  A friend of mine who had been raised in India (her father had been US foreign service) heard it one day while I was playing it on the stereo and you could tell it took her back to the Punjab, New Delhi, Bombay (excuse me, "Mumbai"), etc.  Her father had well passed at that point and I could tell that the music evoked something in her.  The really sad thing is, Mary passed away too a few years back.  Well, now she can listen to Cornershop and sitar music to her heart's content.
