Latin Quarter - Long Pig

Liedtexte

Another sultry night of dreamless sleep
These four, poor walls seep with sweat
A chameleon darts, it's the shade of this cheap plaster
There are no creature comforts left to get
And I know why the cage bird roars
And a monkey God moans
And we're clutching at straws

And all that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
Is almost eaten by the long pig now

It's so lush and so rank here in this English swamp
And sanctuary? Sanctuary is hard to find
Ever since the sky fell foul of delinquent chemistry
And what holds us together began to unbind
And I know why we tore up the trust
The long pig is human but he's no friend to us.

And all that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
Is almost eaten by the long pig now

A mosquito drills at the well of your blood
The shed skin of a moccassin snake
And the radio, faint, with primitive surf music
Saying 'Please feed the world, again, for pity's sake'
And I know why the rooster crows
He's mourning the night and the coming of snows

And all that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
All that we could ever hope for
Is almost eaten by the long pig now

We're in for dirty weather blame the long pig, now

Lied Erklärungen

Menschenfleisch, so sagen diejenigen, die es gegessen haben, schmeckt wie Schwein, daher „Long Pig“. Die Menschheit ißt die Welt auf – kocht sie auf der Flamme der Erderwärmung – bald wird der Norden Europas den Tropen gleichen.
