Girl with One Eye (3:39)

Cover of Lungs

From Lungs and 6 other releases

A cover for a Ludes song.

This is one of several songs on Lungs dealing with violence and death. Welch told The New Musical Express January 10, 2009: “Well, what other subject is there? I remember realising that my parents were going to die and weeping. Weeping as if my father had actually died.”

In this lo-fi punk number, the singer threatens to cut someone’s heart out because they made them cry. Welch told The Independent June 27, 2009: “I’ve always been attracted to dark imagery. I used to believe in vampires and werewolves. I get night terrors, panic attacks. Even as a kid, I’d be more inclined to write about a flower dying than blossoming.”

    Dope track and delightfully evil. As for the lyrics, kids, don't try that at home!

    This has to be at least a little bit inspired by Elle Driver from Kill Bill. No?

    I can never listen to this without cranking up the volume for the last chorus. If I was the sort of person who felt shame/embarrassment for my hobbies then Florence and the Machine would totally be my "guilty pleasure"

    This one is vastly overlooked by people who don't generally understand music. This is truly a work of art. It's both obscure and sexy, not "lame" or "weird".[4]

    Lungs is the best. I can't get through Ceremonials with the exception of 'Seven Devils'.
