Magazine Permafrost Lyrics

Last updated: 07/26/2009 11:00:00 AM

Thunder shook loose hail
on the outhouse again
today I bumped into you again
I have no idea what you want
but there was something I meant to say

As the day stops dead
at the place where we're lost
I will drug you and f*** you
on the permafrost

There's not much that I miss
I'm far too forgetful for that
sugar's sweet some of the time
it's hard to keep some things in mind

As the day stops dead ...

Permafrost "original version" lyric | Reviewer: Il Colonello | 7/26/09

The original recorded and released version contained the line "I will drug you and fuck you on the permafrost...". Magazine recorded a BBC radio session version in which that line was replaced with "I will drug you in a total..." The word following "total remains unclear.



must have for any punk/post punk collection | Reviewer: captain boxass | 8/7/06

this is one of my favorite songs of all time. The combination of the disturbing, ominous lyrics, and the musical soundscapes created by the dark tones and sweeping effects make it really different and eerie. I don't think Devoto actually says, "I will drug you and fuck you", though. If you listen to the original recording, it sound more like "I will drug you in a total [indistinct]...". But the fuck you line fits more with the song, and Devoto's classic creepiness.
