New River Head

This song is by The Bevis Frond and appears on the album New River Head (1991).

Sun in his cups, cuffs
Doesn't hear the water rushing
Down on the town
Stands in his beetle crushing

Boots in his hand
A record by The Undecided
One out of one
Multiplied and then divided

What I want
Waits unnoticed
And what I get

Rain in my bed
Oh, I need a new river head

Snakes in the grass
Sliding through the haunted gardens
Down in the park
Watching as the shadows harden

Left in the road, repose
No-one ever realizes
What you once were
Here in your new disguises

What I want
Waits unnoticed
And what I get

Rain in my bed
Oh, I need a new river head

Dead or asleep
It doesn't really matter to me
Here in my world
Step inside
And walk right through me

I don't even see
I'm so involved in what I'm doing
Out of my grip
I'm unconcerned with rack or ruin

What I want
Waits unnoticed
And what I get

Rain in my bed
Oh, I need a new river head

Time slips away
In this land of lakes and castles
Biding my time
Closing my eyes
I wrap it up in paper parcels

Deep in the ground
All your sorry sisters flowing
Woven in lead
With little specks of silver showing

What I want
Waits unnoticed
And what I get

Rain in my bed
Oh, I need a new river head
Oh, I need a new river head
Oh, I need a new river head
