A Space Between
The Legendary Pink Dots Lyrics


Billy was a car crash - all he ever knew was pain.
Lived a milli-milli-milli-second; never born again.
Though no one saw him coming, plenty witnessed his remains -
laid a wreath yet they never knew him... Me? I'm just the rain,
laid poor Billy to eternal rest, eternal rust.
I soaked the dust that covers him, I wait for all the others.
They all have names...

Red Harry was a bright young spark that flew and burned old London Town
in '66. He flew to bits. He tore it down (bubonic bliss!).
And me? I'm just the kiss our maker blew to put him out.
To eternal rest. Eternal rust. To dust, to ash. I cover up
and wait for all the others. We all have names...

Georgie was cut on Hitler's knee. He ran for weeks, turned shades of green...
They kidnapped me and made him clean... On Winter nights, I still hear him scream.
I cover up. I wait for all the others.

Jane? Her mother was a hurricane who swept the plains and sneezed away
a continent with me (the sea). The team that made a myth by hiding it.
Became a hit on Broadway but it wasn't quite the same - they all FORGOT our names.
We ALL have names.

On of my Favorite albums ever. Listened to this album Throughout the 90's and still do. Not a lot of people here in the states know of them. Mostly back then a lot of Ministry and Depeche Mode kind of stuff. This was goth before goth. Love the dots.

@Tom Przybylinski I think I got lucky. Back in 89 me and my girlfriend picked up Rabies and Tired Eyes Slowly Burning on the same day. Rabies was good and all, but Tired Eyes Slowly Burning was amazing. One thing led to another and well.. dots fans..

it was rough back then, if you lived in the burbs. no youtube, no streaming, and few and far between were the indie stations where you could suffer lloyd cole for hours just in case somebody messed up and played something new that was *good*. i swear i have ptsd from growing up in the 80s and 90s :)
