Heliotrope

This song is by At the Drive-In and appears on the EP Vaya (1999).

Original video
Beneath the residue of film
Beneath the chemicals that the picture split
The ouija board had spelled its name
In tiki torches set aflame
Taking rations from the ballad box
Cursing like sweet tarts
Cursing like sweet tarts

Increase the dosage
Count back from ten

Increase the dosage
Count back from ten

And it was written down
Touching earth in a capital font
Heat seeking
Gums bleeding
Finger snapping at the catacomb stabbings
Taking rations from the ballad box
Cursing like sweet tarts
Cursing like sweet tarts

Adhesive she said
'Don't stick to me'

Adhesive she said
'Please, don't stick to me'

Adhesive she said
'Don't stick to me'

Adhesive she said
'Don't stick to me'

Inseminating motives
Of lukewarm persistence
Let the thieves in through the front door
Let them take what they've been missing
Let them take what they've been missing

Inseminating motives
Of lukewarm persistence
Let the
Thieves in
Let them take what they've been missing

It's as if
Someone raised the
Price of dying
To maximum vend again

Turn slowly for maximum vend
Turn slowly for maximum vend
Turn slowly for maximum vend
Turn slowly for maximum vend
Don't stick to me
Count back from 10
