Bauhaus – Dive lyrics

We're going down
We're going down

We're going down
To the kamikaze dive
Pussy Galore
Fishnet leatherette
Psuedo sumo wrestler
Dangerous dances
The dragons claw
On the door
K-Tel oriental
The monkey's paw.

You're a dead ringer for Madame Butterfly
You're so necromantic
Stitch my thigh
Mixing molotov cocktails
Snappy little fingers

Venomous and vain
In the subterrain
We're going down to the kamikazi dive
Like insects in a Chinese lantern now
We're feeling so alive, what's showing?
We're going down to the kamikazi dive.
We're feeling so alive, what's showinglike manic moths in Chinese lanterns now

    This is one of my favorite songs by Bauhaus. It always bugged me that I had no idea what it meant. It seems to me like it's not supposed to mean anything. My guess would be that it was meant to just be a chaotic punk and electronic twinged mess done for the sake of making a song. Still, as far as those things go this is pretty catchy. I love playing it at parties!
