about

bordeaux lip Switzerland

bordeaux lip sound like pete doherty and the queens of the stone age fighting for the most beautiful girl of the night. though she probably isn't that beautiful. they have commited themselves to celebrating the ugly. with their love-hate-relationship with guitars they do everything the cool kids currently hate: huge and catchy melodies, sung with the desire and the charm of an empty bottle. ... more

Track Name: sugarcoated
a skeleton plays the piano and you look you beautiful today / third class horrorstories have always been an essential part of the play / and so the glue silently dripped down your sugarcoated lip / closed my fleshwound by mistake.

i got the keypoints and that will do / enough to over-romanticise you / or are you only here to teach me a lesson about context? / a beginner's guide to drunk texts / heeled boots stuck in mudd / the art of not giving a fuck / no question about it: that stare will do me no good.

and i know you could make the whole town just burst into applause / how should i calm down when you sharpen your claws?

i ran away so the needle broke off in my arm / met a friend of a friend of yours and raised an alarm / oh, he's basically a guy that impersonates himself / but he might just look top-shelf next to all the green girlie-vodka you had / they're not good for your health, babe / there's too much sugar in there / when you ruffle my hair / way too much sugar in there / there's too much sugar in every single strand of your hair / there's too much sugar in there / i really need to beware.

you make the whole town just burst into applause / how should i calm down when you sharpen your claws?

there's too much sugar in there / there's too much sugar in there / when you ruffle my hair / way too much sugar in there / there's too much sugar in every single strand of your hair / there's too much sugar in there / i really need to beware.
Track Name: a side stitch (500 miles)
moonlighting in the giftshop of your thighs / we're selling woe below price / it's frightening how the kiss outbarks the bite / howling for you all night.

i saw a new era dawning, ignored every warning / and woke up to find i was Kafka this morning / tied up in bright silk / what took years to build will go down in flames within minutes the day she's like...

(if there's no more water i will save my last drop for you / and if one apple's poisoned i will taste all of them for you)

meet me down at the oldest giftshop in town / just use your fingers to count / got kicked out of the oldest giftshop in town / 'cause you were not around.

and now the glitch sometimes itches, ignored all the twitches / but after 500 miles we got a side stitch / as she threw a glance at disney-romance / but if there's no music she's never in the mood to dance.

wish you were in the mood to dance / she's never in the mood to dance.

if there's no more water i will save my last drop for you / and if one apple's poisoned i will taste all of them for you / and if we have to walk 500 miles, you know i'd give you a piggyback-ride / if this is a war, i'll go out and win it for you.
Track Name: first at the scene
first at the scene but last to know / the marching band got stuck in the snow / the tambourin drowns out the screaming / first at the scene but she will never know / well, if you're born deaf what language do you think in? / and if you're colourblind, can they colourgrad your mind? / will there be lemonade when this ship is sinking / and most important of all...

tell me: who's gonna pay for that? / who's gonna pay for that? / me, I suppose.

don't let them panic, silent alarms / make up a hero make him too big to fail / a sugarcoated call to arms / and coupons to the people so they won't complain / when we set up the bright lights, eat money and sing / oh, we know all too well we're gonna get our heads kicked in / first at the scene when the boy dropped his ice cream / daddy, call the police, ask them...

who's gonna pay for that? / who's gonna pay for that? / me, I suppose.

you should hire two investigators and make them follow each other / and if you're already around you might as well have another / those umbrellas in your drink are obvious evidence that the sun will shine on your behalf / just for the laugh.
