lyrics

When girls of odd construction
Wrapped in rhapsody and tension
Hang a right beyond redemption
And continue farther south
Follow past where Fall is falling
And the reptile brain is calling you
To make up fancy reasons
For that dryness of the mouth

And yeah, the hunger
So delicate, so smooth
Its cutting edge is graciously provided

Love among the cannibals
Runs hot and bad and fast
On thousand-year-old freeways
In the caverns of the past
Love among the cannibals
Is cool and good and true
Like the scuba gear of Satan
Blowing bubbles in the blue

The dim, dynamic meanings
Of exotic ladies’ leanings
Defy interpretation
So the feeling comes and goes
Lie down for truth and beauty
And designated duty
Where movies fade to violet
And nightclubs never close

And yeah, the hunger
So delicate, so smooth
Its cutting edge is graciously provided

Love among the cannibals
Is lava after dark
Sweet and sour tidal waves
That rumble past the heart
Love among the cannibals
Is light and sweet and slim
It sighs with perfect patience
And invites you for a swim
Love among the cannibals...
