Siouxsie And The Banshees – Night Shift lyrics

Only at night time---I see you
In darkness---I feel you
A bride by my side---I'm inside many brides
Sometimes I wonder......
What goes on in your mind, always silent and kind
Unlike the others...
Fuck the mothers kill the others
Fuck the others kill the mothers
I'll put it out of my mind because...
I'm out of my mind with you
In heaven and hell with you...
My Night Shift Sisters
Await your nightly visitor
They don't bother me
No they don't bother me
The cold marble slab submits at my feet
With a neat dissection...
Looking so sweet to me--please come to me
With your cold flesh--my cold love
Hissing--not kissing
A happy go lucky chap--always dressed in black
He'll come to you, he'll come to you
My Night Shift Sisters
With your nightly visitor
A new vocation in life
My love with a knife
Fuck the mothers kill the others
Fuck the others kill the mothers
I'll put it out of my mind because...
I'm out of my mind with you
In heaven and hell with you...

    I was looking for someone to have a meaning here. My take is that some one is visiting the dead in a morgue. I got that feel. I used to carry stiffs with the local morticians and this feel of the music chilled me to the bone; like when I would walk into a autopsy in progress. A small community, this happened a lot I love this song wish someone would share their thoughts. It is a masterful piece and love to hear others opinions. Help me please. This genre is new to me; from a 'church' background of many years; blinders removed now I listen to all genre's. So I hope no one is offended what I felt as I read and listened to the lyrics. Fantastical band and thanks to the beautiful man that shared this band (a gem) with me. :-)
