NINETEEN EIGHTYEAR

IT WAS A YEAR MADE OF SOLIDS,
MAGENTA SAT IN AS PATRON SAINT.
VERTICAL IN A CANDY SHELL,
WE WERE THE WALKING TOPIARIES.

MAGENTA SAT IN, PATRON SAINT,
CUTTING FIGURES, COLD AND BLEEDING WHITE.
WE WERE WALKING TOPIARIES,
GEOMETRY DANCING ON A STRING.

CUTTING FIGURES, COLD, BLEEDING WHITE,
DEAD ORCHESTRAS IN PLASTIC BOXES.
GEOMETRY DANCING ON STRINGS
TO THE PUNCH-BEAT OF THE OCTAGON.

DEAD ORCHESTRAS, PLASTIC BOXES,
WE HAD THE KEYS, THE LOOPSET, STUTTERS,
THE PUNCH-BEAT OF THE OCTAGON.
IN PASTEL CARDBOARD-SHOULDER COUTURE,

WE HAD KEYS, LOOPSETS AND STUTTERS.
IT WAS A YEAR OF LOUD ARGUMENTS,
WRITTEN BOLD TYPE ON OUR TORSOS,
ON PLASTIC SLEEVES, AND MADE UP FACES.

IT WAS A YEAR LOUD ARGUMENTS
CAME FROM WINDOW-SMASHING MANNEQUINS.
ON PLASTIC SLEEVES, MADE UP FACES,
WE WHORED OURSELVES TO REALPOLITIK.

FROM WINDOW-SMASHING MANNEQUINS
CAME MILLION-DOLLAR SACKCLOTH AND ASH,
WHORED THEMSELVES TO REALPOLITIK.
IT WAS THE YEAR OF THE ENGLISH STARS,

MILLION-DOLLAR SACKCLOTH AND ASH.
RAISED CASH FOR AFRICAN DICTATORS,
IN THE YEAR OF THE ENGLISH STARS.
WE WORE OUR HUMILITY IN VAIN.

Subject:La Roux
Posted by:movehalfaninch.
Time:2:04 pm.
Has anybody else here heard of La Roux? She's a great new act from the UK who is getting a lot of buzz lately. Her music is really unique and addicting. it's got a bit of an 80s new wave influence, but in a good way! She's got a great look and a great sound and is bound to blow up in the US soon, i think!!



the video for "in for the kill" is now featured on "the freshman" on mtvU. i love it so much.
Watch it here!!!!


check her out on myspace!
