Cold Blue Steel & Sweet Fire Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Cold Blue Steel out of money, one eye for the beat police
Sweet Fire calling, you can't deny me
Now you know what you need
Underneath the jungle gym, hollow-grey-fire-escape-thief
Looking for Sweet Fire, shadow of Lady Release

"Come with me I know the way", she says
"It's down, down, down the dark ladder
Do you want to contact somebody first
Leave someone a letter
You can come now or you can come later"

A wristwatch, a ring, a downstairs screamer
Edgy-black cracks of the sky
Pin-cushion-prick-fix this poor bad dreamer
Money, cold shadows reply
Pawnshops crisscrossed and padlocked
Corridors spit on prayers and pleas
Sparks fly up from Sweet Fire, black soot of Lady Release

"Come with me I know the way", she says
"It's down, down, down the dark ladder
Do you want to contact somebody first
Does it really matter
If you come now or if you come on later?"

Red water in the bathroom sink
Fever and the scum brown bowl
Blue Steel still begging but it's indistinct
Someone's Hi-Fi drumming Jelly Roll
Concrete concentration camp bashing in veins for peace
Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire, fall into Lady Release

"Come with me I know the way", she says
"It's down, down, down the dark ladder
Do you want to contact somebody first
I mean what does it really matter?
You're going to come now
Or you're going to come later?"
