Dead Boys – Sonic Reducer lyrics

I don't need anyone
Don't need no mom and dad
Don't need no pretty face
Don't need no human race
I got some news for you
Don't even need you too

I got my devil machine
Got my electronic dream
Sonic reducer
Ain't no loser
I'm a sonic reducer
Ain't no loser

People out on the streets
They don't know who I am
I watch them from my room
They all just pass me by
But I'm not just anyone
Said I'm not just anyone

I got my devil machine
Got my electronic dream
Sonic reducer
Ain't no loser
I'm a sonic reducer
Ain't no loser

I'll be a pharaoh soon
Rule from some golden tomb
Things will be different then
The sun will rise from here
Then I'll be ten feet tall
And you'll be nothing at all

    "Sonic Reducer" is about how a man and a woman fall in love. They spend time together, talking about their feelings about Communism and ways to have fun in Helsinki after 10PM in the winter. After a while, nobody knows what happened to the man. The woman still shows up to work in the Gary Indiana grain depot. She shows up every day like nothing happened except there a little extra thickness in her hips - a little extra lubrication in her walk to the smoking area. Her cigarettes have turned to cigarillos. Good tobacco. She must have a friend in the diamond business. The Mexicans and the Hondurans have seen this before. But they know better. Nobody talks... and then the woman meets another white man. They spend time together, talking of Helsinki and Communism.
