Parralox - Under The Skin

Under The Skin

Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Look at me, I'm a bug
Take my hand, give me love
Take a ride, come with me
You got a head start, set me free

I had a dream
Chicken Cacciatore
Eating chicken
Don't ignore me

Take your time, and do it better
Take your time, and you will see
All in all, yeah we could be together
In perfect harmony

Verse 2
At the bus stop, you were there
At the beach, I declare
I did nothing, but observe
Then the ocean, changed your world

Got run over
But the sign said
You've got to wear gloves
Get out of my head!

Repeat Chorus

On and on we ride, I'll be your genie tonight
Far into the night, I need some gasoline
Licky, licky, you're a good boy
See my black dress, you turned it white!

Middle 8
Chocolate boring
Swim, swim, swim
The dog runs up
Should I let him in?

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Repeat Coda
Repeat Chorus

Additional Info:
I was doing some research on one of my favourite movies, when I stumbled across the script for it. I started to get a little confused when reading it, as I thought maybe there was a directors cut I hadn't seen, because the dialogue was "slightly" different to what I remembered. Then it dawned on me....

Written 1818 - 12/12/2017 - 10 minutes before Louise is supposed to Arrive

I wrote another song an hour ago (# 179) but realised it suited my voice more, so I've had to write another one at the last miunute.

The dream of John and Mike Cooper with Dave Gahan on stage. John and Mike walked on stage mid set and asked DG if they could have some selfies. DG reluctantly agreed and was getting a little peeved as I was being a bit fussy with me and my camera directions.
