The Fall THE JOKE Lyrics

Last updated: 04/21/2013 02:22:51 PM

Go back go back
to your diseased-[WHUP!]-control room

Don't be don't be
nice about it
just spit it back

Why don't, ward off
why don't you be mature about it
in your grey raincoat

Off ward, ward off
The Joke

Violent food
descends over you
huh

Off ward, ward off
The Joke

The Joke
five years in a PC camp

Multicoloured sweets
in bottom of white sweet pack
The realization burns into my back

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp
The Joke

Violent food
descends over you

The Joke

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp

The Joke
Five years in a PC camp
The Joke

Five years in a PC camp

diseased "hook"? | Reviewer: steve | 4/19/13

I always thought he said "hook", not "whup!". " ... diseased hook control room" kind of makes sense, referring to "hook" in it's musical, song-writing context, like he was sick of focusing on putting hooks into songs to make them more marketable, or that the hooks that the PC camp were demanding were lame.
