Evil
Rosemary
Heaven restores you in life
You're coming with me
Through the aging, the fearing, the strife

It's the smiling on the package, it's the faces in the sand
It's the thought that moves you upwards, embracing me with two hands
Right will take you places, yeah maybe to the beach
When your friends they do come crying, tell them now your pleasure's set upon slow-release

Hey wait
Great smile
Sensitive to fate, not denial
But hey, who's on trial?

It took a lifespan with no cellmate, the long way back
Sandy, why can't we look the other way?

He speaks about travel, yeah, we think about the land
We smart like all peoples feeling real tan
I could take you places, do you need a new man?
Wipe the pollen from the faces make revision to a dream while you wait in the van

Hey wait
Great smile
Sensitive to fate, not denial
But hey, who's on trial?

It took a lifespan with no cellmate to find a long way back
Sandy, why can't we look the other way?
You're weightless, you are exotic
You need something for which to care
Sandy, why can't we look the other way?

Leave some shards under the belly, lay some grease inside my hand
It's a sentimental jury and the makings of a good plan
You've come to love me lightly, yeah you've come to hold me tight
Is this motion everlasting or do shudders pass in the night?

Rosemary
Oh, heaven restores you in life

I spent a lifespan with no cellmate, the long way back
Sandy, why can't we look the other way?
You're weightless, semi-erotic
You need someone to take you there
Sandy, why can't we look the other way?
Why can't we just play the other game?
Why can't we just look the other way?

Trivia:

The song is rumoured to be about serial killer Rosemary West Wikipedia16, the movie Rosemary's Baby Wikipedia16 or Paul Banks hometown Clacton-on-Sea Wikipedia16 ("Rosemary" and "Rosemary west" road), while Paul told NME Wikipedia16: "One of the first songs I wrote for this record. I went to a diner near the studios and the words just came out. It's very abstract. Evil - like the title Antics - just came to me cosmically."
