Greasy Jungle - Lyrics

Pin It Now!

Last played: 2013/02/08 Guelph, ON
Debut: 1994/07/01 Barrie, ON
Album: Day For Night (1994)
Notes: After being played just 17 times from 2000 until the start of the 'Now For Plan A Tour' it roared back into the rotation and was played 16 times during a 39 show stretch. Time will tell if it's back for good. Let's hope so as it's a favourite among Hipheads.

Greasy jungle metropolis noir
Easy tangles the easiest so far
I drove down your road
to Hazeldean where I tasted
your funeral home's sandwiches and coffee
I saw your hands melt into one another
I saw you grieve and grow
care a lot about one another
I stood at your sink
and I felt your warm water
I washed your dishes
and I looked out your kitchen window where I
saw a soulful gymnast
melt in the air and shudder
just above the snow
making moves that just weren't there
Velvet callow with wet hands
I turned out the lights and
breathing shallow hesitated
then went upstairs where
I picked up your housecoat
dried my hands and
touched your hair
and just then you awoke
you could never really barely care
Greasy jungle metropolis noir

Next song: Yawning Or Snarling
