Breezeblocks (3:47)

Cover of An Awesome Wave

From An Awesome Wave and 9 other releases

This sinister love song is a single from their debut album, An Awesome Wave and was partly inspired by Maurice Sendak’s 1963 children’s picture book Where The Wild Things Are. Newman explained to Interview Magazine: “The song is about liking someone who you want so much that you want to hurt yourself and them, as well. We related that idea to Where The Wild Things Are, which we all grew up reading, where in the end the beasts say ‘Oh, please don’t go! We’ll eat you whole! We love you so!,’ that they would threaten cannibalism to have that person - it’s a powerful image.”

Send Ringtones to Cell

She may contain the urge to run away
But hold her down with soggy clothes and breezeblocks
Citrezene your fever's gripped me again
Never kisses all you ever send are fullstops, la la la la
