​Achtung

This song is by Shriekback and appears on the Arista Records edition of the album Jam Science (1984).

Here I come
Staking out the territory
Here's my hand and here's my card
By these signs ye shall know them
It's as black as it is hard
Here I am
All electric elegance
With every kiss a shiver with every shiver a kiss
Right now I feel so shiny
It's as hard and black as it is

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead
Show me a black as bright as it is hard

Here I come
Sharing out the chromosome
Cancer babies of the world unite
By these signs ye shall know them
It's as hard and black as it is bright
Spend the day
Ringing like a telephone
Achtung
Take it away
One line
Crowding up a polar page
It's so sad
It could blow me away

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead
Show me a black as bright as it is hard

She said soft cop
There's a hard cop
But they're both beat crazy yeah yeah yeah

(Spoken) There's a philosophy, don't mean a lot to me -
"The value of anything is how much it hurts"
I'm nearly but not quite almost incinerated
I can't see anything for digging in the dirt
I'll take the policy if you can sell it
But I can't go to heaven for the price of a shirt
Now I'm up for decadence here is the consequence -
Who does the cleaning while I fight and flirt?

Here it is
Cutting out the middleman
Here's the feathers and here's the tar
Oh I'm ready, that's that, that's final, it's a wrap
You win, come on, drive me to the bar
Spend the day
Ringing like a telephone
Achtung
Take it away
One line
Crowding up a polar page
It's so sad
It could blow me away

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead
Show me a black as bright as it is hard

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead
Show me a black as bright as it is hard

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead
Show me a black as bright as it is hard

Stop me dead, love me lifeless
Show me a black as bright as it is hard
Kiss me stupid, love me dead...
