Siouxsie And The Banshees – Switch lyrics

Different Lives Shuffle(d) Lives
In different places into wrong categories
Familiar problems cross the wires
Same old faces and fuse humanities
Watch the muscles twitch
For a brand new switch...

Scientist G.P.'s
With patient guinea-pigs
Cureing their head-aches
With drastic side-effects

Doctor rectorates
Condescending from on high
For all hallucinaters
See druggist in the sky

Vicar experiments
But 'tis blasphemy
Dismissing thought of progess
As the mark of devilry
(Watch the muscles twitch
For a brand new switch...)

People walk Something blows up
And even talk won't come down
People listen scattered muscles twitch
Then they halt too late to switch.
(They're dying to switch)

Lyric: Sioux Music: McKay
