Sex Beat Drop Dead Gorgeous Gun Club

Pin It



Sex Beat Drop Dead. The one and only Jeffrey Lee Pierce - Voodoo Medicine Man. A little reminder of a time when rock music was dangerous, unpredictable and meant something. The good, the bad, the drugs, the sex, the beat, the horror.. Apocalypse Now ..right up there with Elvis and Colonel Kurtz, scaring the shit out of his own men while drifting into oblivion. A true American.. in a way. We're all in a Yellow Submarine and this is no pop music, honey.. this is The Gun Club.




What I say
you cannot hear it
so, you intrude upon my dreams
and hate my appearance,

Who gave you the right
to give out the rights?
and to intrude upon My Dreams
and sell out my eyes,

You can't take My Dreams
You can't take My Dreams
You can't take and steal from this body...

I never get a chance
in the airport
sick in bathroom with Your Dreams
and a flight to nowhere,

In Victoria, Gare du' Nord (du)
and Tompkin's Square
You're standing on My Dreams
and you don't care,

You can't take My Dreams
You can't take My Dreams
You can't take and steal from this body...

A heartbeat
tears my insides apart
and tears apart My Dreams
in the whirling dark,

I never got to go
I cannot make it
I never get to have Dreams
and I will not take it,

You can't take My Dreams
You can't take My Dreams
You can't take and steal from this body...

They were supposed to be MY DREAMS...
