Robert Smith is secure at his villa in France
Any child knows how to do the spiderweb dance
Siouxsie has enough hits to keep the bills paid
Every New Years in Los Angeles you can still see Richard Blade

But the world forgot about Gene Loves Jezebel
Yeah, the world forgot about Gene Loves Jezebel

They charted once or twice
They were on a major label
When the singer went solo
He left money on the table

The two main guys are related
They're at war with each other
Now there's two Genes loving Jezebel
One for each brother

But the world came to agree
What you see is what you get
And what you get is what you see

Whether you're The March Violets or The Bolshoi
Bands who had to leave the darkness for the sun
Red Lorry Yellow Lorry were on Cherry Red I think
They've been playing clubs since 1981

To be fair to Gene Loves Jezebel
Billy Corgan brought 'em on stage
It was in 2011
It's on their wikipedia page

But for the most part
However big that chorused bass may throb
You and me and all of us
Are gonna have to find a job

Because the world will never know or understand
The suffocated splendor
Of the once and future goth band
