Shades 04:37
You gave me a present The paper was blue and green I unwrapped it with pleasure These are the best shades I've ever seen You can be my girlfriend Forever and a day I never thought I was worth much Or that anyone would treat me this way I'm not The kind of guy Who dresses like a king And a really fine pair of shades Means everything And the light that blinds my eyes Shines from you It makes me come in the night It makes me swim with delight I like this pain I like this mirror I like these shades I could have had a problem I might have never followed through The other guys are in trouble They wouldn't listen to a girl like you These shades say something I'll bet they cost a lot I hope I don't break 'em I hope we don't break up I'm not The kind of guy Who dresses like a king And a really fine pair of shades Means everything And the light that blinds my eyes Shines from you It makes me come in the night It makes me swim with delight I like this pain I like this mirror I like these shades

There’s an open wound someplace south of my neck, north of my toes Where the blood spills out of a geysers mouth and spoils my ivory robes By the river slow and easy, still I don’t know where it flows I wanna know where you go, when you go In the poison room of the time hotel every crack is a swollen tongue That sings to me my eulogy, the last breath of a golden lung I kept my heart a secret now I bleed naked in the snow I wanna know where you go, when you go I loved you like a brother, I kept you safe from sulfur eyes And you treat me like a Trojan horse just to take ‘em all by surprise I took my horn down to the club, for I felt that I might blow I wanna know where you go, when you go A head filled with nails was found face down in a lake When they pulled him out the police new it could be no mistake They found 29 nails in his brain and one lodged in his nose I wanna know where you go, when you go I caught time in a cage I kept it captive for a while I staved it and I beat it but I still got no reply I asked that it might take me and leave you old to never grow I wanna know where you go, when you go

about

‘Shades’ is a desolate and beautiful cover of the underrated romantic highlight from Iggy Pop’s 1986 album ‘Blah-Blah-Blah’. It is released alongside the slinky and lovelorn B-Side ‘Head Full of Nails’.
