Red Light LyricsEdit


♪♫Red Light Lyrics♫♪

She falls into frame With a professional pout But the Polaroid's ignite Upon seeing their subject And the aperture shuts Too much exposure

Voyeur sucks into focus Floodlit the glossy kiss-pit But as emulsion drips down - down The aperture shuts Too much exposure

Come into this room Come into this gloom See the red light rinsing Another shutterslut wincing

The sagging half wit sister Pretty, pretty picture Of an ancient nipple shrinking That kodak whore winking 'Til the aperture shuts

Too much exposure
