Swans - Volcano Lyrics




Your lipstick smear across your face
Now toss your hair in dirty grace
Pink leather strap on your guitar
Now spread your legs - how bright you are
Mmmmmm... they all know your name
Mm - Cully, claw your way to - mm - fame

There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
There's a star in her mind yeah she chose it
There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
There's a star in her mind yeah she chose it
And every evening the sun comes up when she goes down
And every evening the mud fills up her bridal gown

The little girl inside of you
Has made her wish come true
And tonight you take the stage
You wear a dress of blood and lace
You left a stain where you have kneeled
But Cully you're still invisible

There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
There's a star in her mind yeah she chose it
There's a star in her eyes and she knows it
There's a star in her mind yeah she chose it
And every evening the sun comes up when she goes down
And every evening the mud fills up her bridal gown

Your lipstick smear across your face
Now toss your hair in dirty grace
Pink leather strap on your guitar
Now spread your legs just like a star

And I'd like to eat her breasts and know God
(There's a star in her eyes)
And I'd like to taste her flesh and grow hard
(There's a star in her eyes)
And I'd like to eat her breasts and grow God
(There's a star in her eyes)
And I'd like to suck her breath and blow hot
(There's a star in her eyes)

And I'd like to eat her breasts and know God
(There's a star in her eyes)
And I'd like to taste her flesh and grow hard
(There's a star in her eyes)
And I'd like to eat her breasts and grow God

Swans Volcano Comments
  1. mrlevinielsen

    Swans Grips

  2. Nick E.

    I like that the description still says "From their final album"

  3. Aditya Dwarkesh

    This is just begging to be used as the soundtrack for some psychological horror movie

    hf sitko

    i mean it basically is perfect blue, I'd recommend that.

  4. jh72826 Harris

    Whenever I hear this song I picture an insane stalker going after a DJ, catching him and proceeding to profess her love to him. The DJ refuses her love and she proceeds to kidnap and torture him and starts cutting off parts of his body while she continues to tell him how much she loves him and then he dies and she starts eating and fucking the corpse.

    Dagoth Ur

    I get that this is SWANS, but what the fuck man

  5. Collinlopezrox

    This song make me feel sick to my stomach, yet I can't stop listening to it.

  6. sean herron

    My first time hearing this song I thought I was listening to Xiu Xiu. Does anybody else hear the similarity?

  7. James Guillory

    Am I even allowed to listen to such great music?

  8. Weirund RMA

    That description didn't age well

    Adventures on the internet

    And thank god for that

  9. Maven Rooz

    Esta es la canción que pondria si llegase a matar una persona.

  10. Sanake's garbage

    This song is like drug withdrawal

  11. Thiago

    Cursed song.

  12. eli

    This is one of the most weirdest, twisted and disturbing songs I've ever heard

  13. Jamie

    Anyone else get Björk vibes? Debut era stuff, like Big Time Sensuality and Venus as a Boy

    trmqs

    More like Homogenic, this is kinda like Pluto

  14. Balfour

    I clearly remember the time when I began listening Soundtracks for the Blind. This song was the most frightening to me, I don't know why. It just sounded so wrong, so out of place that I often skipped it. Now it's my favorite song in the album along with Animus.

    Jake Fettes

    Nice to see someone else out there that considers “Animus” a highlight. I really don’t feel like that one gets enough love.

  15. feroui hamza

    i was so surprised when i first heard this song,it made me love soundrtacks for the blind even more

    CannibalWHORE22

    feroui hamza This is an underrated comment I feel you on that

  16. Joe M.

    this song reminds me of Perfect Blue

    Mangzorz

    Fuck yeah, good reference. I agree

    brennen spice

    Holy shit, that's a perfect comparison honestly.

  17. CB96

    Bjork would be proud

    maxwellwt

    eliminator jr. no it didn’t

    Darth Jar Jar

    maxwellwt it did though, Homogenic is from 97 and Soundtracks is from 96. Still doesn’t mean it couldn’t have been influenced by Björk.

    maxwellwt

    Darth Jar Jar I thought he wrote “after” instead of before. My bad

    maxwellwt

    Darth Jar Jar Actually nevermind, I wrote that as a joke

    Fay Biel

    @eliminator jr. but it came out after big time sensuality, if I'm not mistaken.

  18. Isaias Garay

    Suena como algo que Bjork haria

    Blas

    pensé lo mismo, pensé en debut

  19. luigiymariobrothers

    Cuando escucho esta canción siempre me imagino a mi a las 3 de la mañana en un antro underground lleno de yonkis dormidos y solo yo despierto viendo el panorama, y pensando en el suicidio

  20. eric bryant

    I want to taste your flesh and know god

  21. Jmdietr

    This shit is scary

  22. Grant Skellen

    This is probably the most unsettling song on the whole album. And that’s saying something

    your dad's bbq brisket

    mmmmm i don't know... at least you can kind of bob your head and dance along with this track. i think tracks like i love you this much, her mouth is filled with honey, and the beautiful days are a lot more unsettling.

    Eric Trommer

    drifting to sleep to this is fucking terrifying

    Dom Merlo

    I agree hard. It's so different from everything else that it REALLY stands out as discomforting. The production on everything but the drums sounds like it's much older than the rest of it, and the industrial sounds and glitches cause massive contrasts in so many directions. That's not even mentioning the soul-crushing lyrics.

  24. skeetuschrist

    what in the shit

  25. zzGRENDELzz

    Soooooo - in 96 I was big into DEATH IN JUNE, not so much CURRENT 93 and I didn't understand the comparisons being made by other fans with SWANS.

    I was familiar with their earlier stuff and passed on this and the great annihilator. Now I'm really sorry I did.

    Amazing lps, and this is one of the most ungodly, bizarre and unsettling things I've ever heard.

    Really unwholesome, and that's from a BRIGHTER DEATH NOW and WHITEHOUSE fan.
    Wow.

  26. Daniel Ressler

    This song would have been perfect for the end of Requiem for a Dream.

    eric bryant

    ass to ass

    CannibalWHORE22

    Daniel Ressler I can see that

  27. MirumExMachina

    Remember that time that swans had a drum&bass song half way through their postrock drone album?

    josh laleo

    which one

    Datapod

    no, when?

  28. kennedi cotarelo

    even swans made an edm track

    Mig

    kennedi cotarelo wow I actually found you by chance lmao. Hi ken

  29. Kenny Gates

    This song is so freaky.

  30. deadelevation212

    This song actually gave me nightmares the first time listened to it.

  31. Joao Gois

    This song scares me

  32. Matthias Bangaard Jensen

    This song is so unsettling

    KingSpook

    Actually? It's kind of pleasant for me.

    Matthias Bangaard Jensen

    It's just the atmosphere on the song, and the lyrics too. It makes me feel like i'm in Studio 54 or some shit about to overdose on cocaine. It just pulsating too.

    THRAXBOY

    KingSpook great fucking music taste Spook

  33. TheAshloJones

    WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS FUCKINGGNGNGNG SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITT FUCK ME

    Dam son

    it's gay

  34. Stan Man

    This is the most not Swans song by Swans

    james

    +Stan Man so in a way it's the most swans song ever

    Bryson

    you havent heard their cover of love will tear us apart

    Emiliano Villalobos

    Agree
    The burning world it's anti swans somehow

  35. EatPieYes

    Works in great contrast to Yum Yab Killers, where Jarboe just goes berserk, but also within the context of the album. Genius!

  36. bineweasel

    god these lyrics
    what the hell

    Father Thunder

    I agree

    Ajax Crackmaster

    Aren't they great?

    Skullkan6

    Really fucked up and make a compelling point, as pretentious as that sounds.

  37. Matthew Boren

    Amazing medley of styles; some electronic influence obviously, but also kind of post-rocky.  Great song, great vocals from Jarboe.

  38. WowGreatJob

    Guys! What style of music is volcano?

    Damian Behymer

    sounds like a pop song from the nineties, but all syncopated and with strange, primal, spiritualish lyrics... i dunno, man. it's swans.

    WowGreatJob

    Gosh i know whats going on in the song i just liked that reverse effect there i DONT CAAAAAAAre

    Alec Isseri

    Dance, IDM, Electronic

    TheDoctor64

    Industrial Pop
    I just made up that genre but I want more

    David Valentine

    *Technically*, the album falls under post-rock/art-rock. But this track in particular is a bit of an anomaly

  39. Schmuck Nation

    This song rocks my socks off

  40. EmoGod 777

    Shit when I got this album and got to this song I thought there was a mix up with the music

  41. atalts

    It´s catchy in a wierd way and very thacky, in a good way. Varey good and interesting track though.

  42. MercuryClock

    Listen to 'A Hanging', from Holy Money. Dear *God.*

  43. maosaytounge49

    This isn't the weakest song off Soundtracks

  44. kurono1822

    this song is like some teen pop song corrupted by darkness and nightmares

    seumas Broderick

    shadow pop

  45. Persons aperson

    ~I'd like to eat her breasts and grow hard~ <3

  46. Vojife

    I am positive this is by far the weirdest song I've ever heard. ;D

  47. Lateralus347

    ~there's a starr in her eyez nd she knows it~ <3

  48. cheese1678989

    Mellothumb is the weakest.

  49. lemma

    This song makes me want to be a cannibalistic drag queen.

  50. maosaytounge49

    if you're not a Jarboe fan then you're not a Swans fan.

    DJ Nevling

    maosaytounge49 yeah most of the bullshit misdirected anger towards Jarboe comes from a misguided misogynistic place. Jarboe is as much a part of swans as anyone else and her contributions both vocally and stylistically to the band are undeniable. Her voice is incredible and she has an amazing range for vocals. Her solo stuff is absolutely incredible too. I'd love to meet her someday.

    JoBro

    DJ Nevling Absolutely agree. Plus, a lot of the sound collage stuff on soundtracks feature her work with field recordings. In short, this album owes a lot of its eerieness to Jarboe.

  51. troniz

    Such an awesome song. It's like a demented parody of electronic pop music.

  52. frosthawk89

    I like listening to Clay Man, and then this song.

  53. maosaytounge49

    screw the Jarboe detractors on here.. she was an indispensible part of the band.

  54. eric paltell

    @Loudynoises you must go to private school

  55. charlie z

    I think it's great this crazy experimental thing ended on the album

  56. PanoplyCabaret

    I...don't really like Jarboe. I always appreciated Gira's lead, as it gives them a sort of apocalyptic feel; more power to the music.

  57. paul mercer

    well cool

  58. kalttrabant

    i'm not Jarboe's fan.

  59. urckrecords

    @ErebosX try spending five minutes in Hollywood, then you'd get it (let alone 15 years in this shitty town)

  60. urckrecords

    the sacred and the profane!

  61. Daniel Siekris

    @ants4rocket definitely not the weakest song on that album.

  62. ErebosX

    i think it's the weakest song on "soundtrack for the blind". it's hard for me to get in touch with it.

  63. Agallochness

    Hahahaha good luck man. Let me know how that works out.

  64. Loudynoises

    You know what? I'm actually going to try to get them to play this at my school prom.

    zhen zhen

    Loudynoises How did it go?

    Soup Man

    updates?

    Setomanda

    @Soup Man It didn't happen, obviously
