Haha, no worries. I'm curious as to what he sings in that particular line, though. Can't decipher it for the life of me.

That's what i thought too :oops: but found it hard it believe as it was the first song released. After Sir Elton John's Cock, i believe anything is possible now.
Pretty sure it's about some ol self-loving...
Mind you I'm pretty sure swamp song is either about the same or some other kind of sexy times ;)
"gimme good times" "gimme saliva" "gimme fever" yeah, definitely something to do with sex
maybe hes singing about Graham again :o

Hi again, everyone. I need help correcting the lyrics for Ong Ong, please!

Ong Ong

I got on a boat on a hot sunny day
To get out of this town
but the tarmac was melting and the people seemed to sway
stuck in the underground

To the island of rainclouds and a wishing tree
I wanna be with you

On the slow boat that lands on a misty sea
I wanna be with you

I pulled out the harbour with procession behind and i'm
feeling the love of you

So you better get to charge until i see you again
You'll know just what to do

If you're caught up on the gills of the junk boat seas
I wanna be with you

On a hill where the mountains (?)
I wanna be with you

If you're a land of the social and media feed
I wanna be with you

On an island of rainclouds and mellow seas
I will be there with you

I wanna be with you

I know it has a lot of mistakes and it might end up being totally useless as the lyrics Damon sang at the Mode may differ from the lyrics he actually sings on the album. I guess i just wanted to know i'm babbling the right stuff at the shower :oops:
Thank you very much!

Thanks! I knew i could be wrong. :oops: Would you please confirm the rest of the lyrics?
Pretty sure it is "in a car park" and that in the last verse is "in hyde park"

This is my contribution to the Lonesome Street lyrics, with only a few additions according to what i'm able to hear:

Lonesome Street

What do you got?
Mass produced in somewhere hot
You'll have to go on the Underground
To get things done here
And then you have
You really want a pop, service done
This is a place to come to, or, well, it was
I know a hot spot
Crossing on the guillotine

And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
It's got to be that time again
And you, you will be over soon again

So get yourself up, get past the glitch on your way
There's nothing to be ashamed of
Taking off again
The 514 to East Grinstead
You've set me off

I wanna go up up up!
Crusing on a Bentleys 9
And talking types will let us down...again
Talk, talk on your arse all night
You wanna be there

Step inside the tarmac ride
To the land that time forgot
Oh, we're just gonna go there
Cracks inside the tarmac ride
To the land that crime forgot, oh no


And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
Going down to Lonesome Street

Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street

Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street

Going down to Lonesome Street
Lonesome Street

Pyongyang

I look down from my window
To the island where i'm held
Listen while you're sleeping
Darkness is itself

Tomorrow I'm leaving
Cause the trees are amplified
Never ending broadcasts
To the child and the spy (?

The mausoleum's fallen
And the perfect avenues
Will seem empty without you
And the pink light that bathes the great leaders
is fading
By the time your sun is rising there
Out here it's turning blue
The silver rockets coming
Under the cherry trees of Pyongyang
I'm leaving

?? I am falling
Persisting autotune
????
To the palace of the doom
The temperature keeps falling
Soon there will be no lights
Just a red glow of glass coffins
Watched by someone through the night

The mausoleum's fallen
And the perfect avenues
Will seem empty without you
And the pink light that bathes the great leaders
is fading
By the time your sun is rising there
Out here it's turning blue
The silver rockets coming
Under the cherry trees of Pyongyang
I'm leaving

(Soon there will be no light, someone through the night)

Beautiful!! Thank you very much Daii! Here's my approach to the lyrics, though :oops:

Pyongyang

I look down from my window

Listen while you're sleeping
Darkness is itself

Tomorrow I'm leaving
Cause the trees are amplified
Never ending broadcasts
To the child who now they spy

Kim mausoleum's fallen
And the perfect avenues
Will seem empty without you
And the pink light that bathed the great leaders
is fading
By the time your sun is rising there
Out here it's turning blue
The silver rockets coming
Under cherry trees of Pyongyang
I'm leaving

I've seen I am falling
Persisting out of tune
the guitar strays in
To the palace of the doom
The temperature keeps falling
Soon there will be no lights
Just a red glow of glass coffins
Watched by someone through the night
someone through the night

Kim mausoleum's fallen
And the perfect avenues
Will seem empty without you
And the pink light that bathes the great leaders
is fading
By the time your sun is rising there
Out here it's turning blue
The silver rockets coming
Under the cherry trees of Pyongyang
I'm leaving

Soon there will be no light, someone through the night
