Pulp – The Fear

This Is Hardcore -albumin avausraita, The Fear, voisi olla kuvaus huumeiden käytön aiheuttamista peloista ja paniikeista. Monkey on my back viittaisi hieman siihen suuntaan.

”This is our ”Music from A Bachelors Den”
The sound of loneliness turned up to ten.
A horror soundtrack from a stagnant water-bed
And it sounds just like this.
This is the sound of someone losing the plot
Making out that they’re okay when they’re not.
You’re gonna like it,
But not a lot
And the chorus goes like this:

Oh baby,
Here comes the fear again.
The end is near again.
A monkey’s built a house on your back.
You can’t get anyone to come in the sack
And here comes another panic attack
Oh here we go again.

So now you know the words to our song,
Pretty soon you’ll all be singing along.
When you’re sad, when you’re lonely
And it all turns out wrong.
When you’ve got the fear.

And hen you’re no longer searching
For beauty or love
Just some kind of life
With the edges taken off.
When you can’t even define what it is that you’re frightened of
This song will be here.

Oh baby,
Here comes the fear gain.
The end is near again.
If you ever get that chimp off your back.
If you ever find the thing that you lack
But you know you’re only having a laugh
And here we go again.
Until the end.”

Pulp – Cocaine Socialism

”Now I’ll get down to the gist:
Do you want a line of this?
Are you a (sniff)

Biisi liittyy todennäköisesti jollain tapaa huumeiden lisäksi Englannin politiikkaan; Tony Blairiin, New Labour-puolueeseen ja vuoden 1997 vaaleihin.

Pulp – Sorted for E’s & Wizz

”Oh yeah, the pirate radio told us what was going down
Got the tickets from some fucked up bloke in Camden Town
Oh and no-one seems to know exactly where it is
But that’s okay cos we’re all sorted out for E’s and wizz
At 4 o’clock the normal world seems very, very, very far away

E viittaa ekstaasiin ja wizz amfetamiiniin.
