Bauhaus Medley

Note: This medley is a combination of the Bauhaus songs ‘King Volcano’, ‘Kingdom’s Coming’, and ‘Silent Hedges’.

– King Volcano –

Overshadowed by her sister
Pretty girl would scream

King Volcano gave me numbers
King Volcano is clean

Lonely people burn like candles
Only we are clean
Lonely people burn like candles
Only we are clean

Overshadowed by her sister
Pretty girl would scream

King Volcano gave me numbers
King Volcano is clean
King Volcano gave me numbers
King Volcano is clean

Lonely people burn like candles
Only we are clean
Lonely people burn like candles
Only we are clean

King Volcano gave me numbers
King Volcano is clean
King Volcano gave me numbers
King Volcano is clean
King Volcano is clean
King Volcano is clean

– Kingdom’s Coming –

Madness in the wind’s got something to say
It ripped you apart, it will always be that way
It said, “Kingdom’s coming, causes chaos”
We’ll cut to pieces the film we saw today
It’s your big, bad secret, your crown of thorns
You want for nothing, nothing at all

Sky will open soon, could be today
(Can’t look back, back again)
Your kingdoms’ coming, coming today
(You want it all but it’s on the run)
Can’t take it easy, you can’t turn back
(The sky will open soon, could be today­)
Forget your bastard ego, get it off your back
(Your kingdom’s coming, coming, coming today)

Can’t just look back, back again
(Can’t take it easy now, can’t turn back)
You want it all, but it’s on the run
(Forget your bastard ego, get it off your back)
The sky will open

– Silent Hedges –

Following the silent hedges
Needing some other kind of madness
Looking into purple eyes
Sadness at the corners
Works of art with a minimum of steel

Pure sensation
The beautiful down grade
Going to hell again
Going to hell again

Self confidence leaks
From a thousand wounds
Faults of civilizations
Burning the private paradise of dreams
Minus hands of the electric clock
Clock
Clock
Clock

What happens when the intoxication of success has evaporated?

Following the silent hedges
Following the silent hedges
Going to hell again

Pure sensation
The beautiful down grade
Going to hell again
Going to hell again
Again
Again
Again
Again
Again
