Mahalia

This song is by Shriekback and appears on the album Glory Bumps (2007).

All the bloodbank boys they know her name
With her heatwave eye and her fusebox brain
See how the primal laws obtain
And how my limp leaves wait for rain
How my limp leaves wait for rain
Mahalia! Mahalia!

Look at the human wreckage she entrains
And it's all out of her hands she claims
It was the monster daddy who forged her chains
But none of that stuff quite explains
None of that stuff quite explains
Mahalia! Mahalia!

Ah the bile comes up as the drink goes down
But it's all aboard for nutbar-town
Her name is sonorous and brown
It's a deeply satisfying sound
A deeply satisfying sound
Mahalia! Mahalia!

Mahalia! Mahalia!
Go steady in the dark
Go steady in the dark
Go steady in the dark
Go steady in the dark

Her china heart's exciting too
But nothing that you should pursue
She's a chemical lynx in the human zoo
Her steely moods will run you through
Steely moods will run you through
Mahalia! Mahalia!
