Spank
The Naked and Famous Lyrics


I don't remember the first time
But I think I survive
Probably better not to try to recall
'Cause it feeds it, yeah, it keeps it alive

There're specific things
Tthat I have to do
Day to day just to keep it at bay
You wouldn't believe if you knew
(Oh no, this isn't real)

(Oh no, this isn't real)
Here's a little secret
Here's the best part
This is gonna take me
Right back to the start
If I can't hear it
If it's out of mind
Wait until it settles
Comes 'round a second time

I don't remember the first time
But I think I survive
Probably better not to try to recall
'Cause it feeds it, yeah, it keeps it alive

(Oh no (no), this isn't real)
(Hmm)

(Oh no, this isn't real)
Here's a little secret
Here's the best part
This is gonna take me
Right back to the start
If I can't hear it
If it's out mind
Wait until it settles
Comes 'round a second time

I can feel it loom
Up into my head
It is in the room
Panicking in bed
I feel it coming on
Taking over view
Oh, please, not tonight
There's nothing I can do

This is bigger than me
This is in my fear
This is pitiful, yeah
I just disappear
Swells up all around me
Swallowed up inside
Sell me senses if it
Would make this subside

I can barely handle
I can pass the time
Staring through the curtains
Up into the sky
Where there is no
Depth perception
Keep preoccupied
Self deception

Nobody recognizes
It doesn't have a name
My brother is infected
He's acting just the same
Screaming like a siren
Up and down the hall
He just wants to stop it
He wants to end it all

I am just a child
I am nothing more
Than the basic functions
I am running from
I curl up and wallow
My distortion
Everything is
Disproportioned

Suddenly I wake
All is back again
Everything is closer
More or less the same
And I can't hear it
It's way out of mind
I will just forget this
'Til the next time

one of their best

This is my impact tap dance

figliad'italia

This is about child abuse. Not sure if a lot of people realize it. But all of this correlates with a child's conception of fear with coming violence that they learn to anticipate. I relate.

MrShaneobueno Snodgrass

I thought this song was about an Lsd trip gone sour. but that's just my perception. 🤣

MrAfricanPenguin

I feel very awkward searching for "spank the naked and famous" on my work computer

MrAfricanPenguin

@MrShaneobueno Snodgrass It's such a good song! One of my favourites of theirs

MrShaneobueno Snodgrass

I've had that exact same fear before searching for this song. I'm surprised this song isn't more popular but I'm glad I've found it.

Mongezi Ncube

yep!
