Siouxsie And The Banshees – Red Light lyrics

Sioux: vocals, camera
Severin: synthesizers, rhythm box
Budgie: drums

She falls into frame with a professional pout but the polaroids ignite on seeing their subject and the aperture shuts-too much exposure

Voyeur sucks into focus-floodlit the glossy kiss-pit but as emulsion drips down... Down
The aperture shuts-too much exposure

Come into this room-Come into this gloom See the Red light rinsing another shutterslut wincing the sagging half-wit sister
Pretty, pretty picture
Of an ancient nipple shrinking-that Kodakwhore winking 'til the aperture shuts-too much exposure.
