Third Secret
The Legendary Pink Dots Lyrics

New martyrs swinging in the wind. The dead eyes searching for messiahs in
the stars. The bodies carrying the scars of no confession, no concession.
No sympathy. The laughter from the front row buzzing loudly now in bars,
over chicken in a basket, in the darkest corners of the Central Station.
Passing round the spirit that drove Rommel to his desert hole, smashed
diamonds, stripped the gold from hidden cities in Brazil. And killed the
savage in the name of Mary... Burn the witch, whip the bitch who shows her
ankles on the Sabbath. Bring the kids aged 1 to 63 - the family treat.
Maybe there will be a vision of messiahs in the stars. Now all confess and
make a wish. The priest is passing round the dish...our Lady's selling
tissues for the tears, for all the years of blessed rape in the name of
our sweet lord.

Omg! I haven't listened to these guys for over 20 years...I love it!


This brought back memories.  Damn I was listening to the LPD all the time back then.  The only other band I've listened as much is Grandaddy, to this day...


I think this is my favourite Pink Dots album. I never saw any relation between the Fantastic Planet and Pink Dots but watching this video I see they were made for each other!

This is a great song with a wonderful video. Nice job

Luv krafft

I wish there was just a song with the opening synths alone. I remember seeing Kaspel perform this song solo in Toronto with the synths being more prominent. Ahhhhhh. Tears came to my eyes over the sad voice of Edward.
