Bauhaus – In The Flat Field


You can really hear punk evolving into goth in this track..

Artist: Bauhaus
Album: Crackle
Year: 1988

Lyrics:
A gut-pull drag on me
Into the chasm gaping we
Mirrors multi-reflecting this
Between spunk-stained sheet and odorous whim
Camera-eye flick shutter within
Assist me to walk away in sin
Where is the string that Theseus laid
Find me out this labyrinth play

I do get bored, I get bored
In the flat field
I get bored, I do get bored
In the flat field

Yin and yang lumbar punch
Go taste a tart then eat my lunch
And force my slender, thin and lean
In this solemn place of fill-wetting dreams
Of black-matted lace of pregnant cows
As life maps out onto my brow
The card is lowered in index turn
Into my filing cabinet hemispheres burn

I do get bored, I get bored
In the flat field
I get bored, I do get bored
In the flat field

Let me catch the slit of life
For a maiden’s sake in maiden flight
In the flat field I do get bored
Replace with Piccadilly whores
In my yearn for some cerebral fix
Transfer me to that solid plain
Hammer me into blazen pain
Moulding shapes, no shame to waste
Moulding shapes, no shame to waste
And drag me there with deafening haste
