About This Album

Lyrics

  • Skin Trade (Radio cut)

    Working on the weekend, baby
    She's working all through the night
    A jump into the deep end gave her
    The evidence she required
    Takes five, she's got pearls
    Don't fake it when it comes to making money
    So she smiles, but that's cruel
    If you know what she thinks
    If you knew what she was after

    Sometimes she wonders
    And she laughs in her frustration

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

    Doctors of the revolution gave us
    The medicine we desired
    Besides being absolutely painless
    It's a question of compromise
    They got steel, so cool
    To get angry at the weekend
    Then go back to school
    So big deal, it's what rules
    When it comes to making money
    Say yes, please, thank you

    Sometimes you wonder
    And ask yourself the question

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

    I know the answer
    But I'm asking you the question

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

  • [Verse]
    Time will see we're not searching for a wild excuse
    To put emotions back on hold
    Too much has gone down we know what you're doing
    But do you feel the same way
    You look sharp inside your pointed shoes
    I have this picture hanging in my room
    And I refuse to take you down or shake you down
    We could bring you gently round if that's what you choose
    For a point of view cause words like sand just get blown away
    All those things we'd like to say

    [Outro]
    We need you [Repeat ad lib and end]
