Kmfdm – Real Dub Thing Lyrics


[Indistinct radio chatter]

Cracking under pressure, violently
Chaos eats away the best of me
A former shadow of myself
Porcelain doll, just an empty shell
Bug in amber that can’t be reached
Choking on fear that stings like bleach

Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life
Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life
Gimme the real thing

I have no friends
I’m always by myself
(I cannot pacify my shame and doubt)
Drained them dry
And damned them all to hell
(I’ve no control or any will to stop)

Everything perfect just melts away
I’ve got the touch like evil prey

Talking pictures in black and white
Spitting their venom back at mine

Gimme the real thing
Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life
Gimme the real thing
(Gimme the life)
Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life (Gimme the life)

Everything old is new again
My only crime buried under cold skin
In the quiet of my tiger’s eye
Cross my heart and hope to die

Gimme the real thing
Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life
Gimme the real thing
(Gimme the life)
Gimme the real thing
Gimme the life (Gimme the life)
Gimme the real thing
