Senses Working Overtime

XTC


(Andy Partridge)


Hey hey,

The clouds are whey,

There's straw for the donkeys,

And the innocents can all sleep safely,

All sleep safely.


My, my,

Sun is pie,

There's fodder for the cannons,

And the guilty ones can all sleep safely,

All sleep safely.


And all the world is football shaped,

It's just for me to kick in space,

And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,

And I've got one, two, three, four, five

Senses working overtime,

Trying to take this all in,

I've got one, two, three, four, five

Senses working overtime,

Trying to taste the difference,

'Tween the lemons and limes,

The pain and the pleasure,

And the church bells softly chime.


Hey hey,

Night fights day,

There's food for the thinkers,

And the innocents can all live slowly,

All live slowly,

My, my,

The sky will cry,

Jewels for the thirsty,

And the guilty one's can all die slowly

All die slowly.


And all the world is biscuit shaped,

It's just for me to feed my face,

And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,

And I've got one, two, three, four, five,

Senses working overtime,

Trying to take this all in,

I've got one, two, three, four, five,

Senses working overtime,

Trying to taste the difference,

'Tween the lemons and limes,

The pain and the pleasure,

And the church bells softly chime,


And birds might fall from black skies,

And bullies might give you black eyes,

And busses might skid on black ice,

But to me it's very very beautiful,

(England's glory!)

Beautiful

(a striking beauty!)


And all the world is football shaped,

It's just for me to kick in space,

And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,

And I've got one, two, three, four, five,

Senses working overtime,

Trying to take this all in,

I've got one,two,three, four, five


Profil XTC

XTC was an influential new wave/alternative band which formed in Swindon, England in 1972. For most of their career, the band consisted of Andy Partridge (vocals, guitar), Colin Moulding (vocals, bass) and Dave Gregory (guitar, keyboards). Gregory replaced founding keyboardist Barry Andrews in 1979 and left himself in 1999. After co-founding drummer Terry Chambers left in 1983, the band did not choose a permanent replacement, and instead hired session drummers on an album-to-album basis. ... selengkapnya
