Mmm…Skyscraper I Love You (A1765 Sky Version id4. Harmone6 COMP43)
Here's what I've got for the lyrics at the moment. Feel free to point out anything you disagree with!
(Making a thread for this as I've seen it done for Concord and Cowgirl's demo)
Quote:
30,000 ft above the earth,
30,000 ft above the earth,
30,000 ft above the earth,
30,000 ft above the earth,
(Mmm skyscraper, I love you) - [vocal sample, very very quiet]
it's a beautiful thing, down there,
it's a beautiful thing, down there.

30,000,
30,000 ft above the earth,
It's a beautiful thing, down there,
30,000 ft above the earth.

30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thing you're a beautiful thing and everybody's a beautiful thing,
30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thing you're a beautiful thing and everybody's a beautiful thing.

Porn fest pork fat Jesus Christ nightlight, Elvis.
Here comes Elvis.

Don't put your face where you wouldn't put your hand,
don't put your hand where you wouldn't put your face.

I see porn dogs sniffing the wind, sniffing the wind for something new,
porn dogs sniffing the wind for something violent something we could do.

Said Jesus walking through Soho looking for a cup of coffee,
said Jesus walking through Soho looking for a cup of, something hot.

Revolving doors, breaking through.

Half three little fresh lean and long and silver dome,
life is sweet in a hybrid state swarm thing cheap shots and small time.

Hey god's on the phone,
time to open your mind.

(Mmm skyscraper, I love you)
(Mmm skyscraper, I love you)

30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thing, and you're a beautiful thing,
30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thing, and you're a beautiful thing.

I see porn dogs sniffing the wind, sniffing the wind for something new,
porn dogs sniffing the wind for something violent they could do,
porn dogs sniffing the wind, sniffing the wind for something new,
I see porn dogs sniffing the wind for something violent they could do with you.

And the city is a whore!
And the city is contagious!

30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thing, and you're a beautiful thing,
30,000 ft above the earth,
it's a beautiful thayng, and you're a beautiful thayng.

Don't put your hand where you wouldn't put your face.

She was a recycled blonde,
she said, snatch!
She was a rolling rock,
dipped in sugar,
a blasted thing,
I said a blasted thing,
with a brown screen,
hey 'aint that the name of a band?

Spent a little drive and rubber rats of eight street baby,
them crazy cocks are bringing beers hanging out little baby,
bone daggers on a night,
on a sniff she'd have laughed as dark stuff was oozing,
out of the apple like a beggars dog tasting the wind for fresh meat,
tasting the wind for fresh meat,
and it's a beautiful thing, and you're a beautiful thing!
Woohoo!
Woohoo!
30,000 ft above the earth!

You're contagious.
Come and be my big play thing.
Mmm skyscraper, I love you.

Why don't we just have one thread and just merge all the lyrics together.

That's probably my favourite lyric in this song. Thanks for resuscitating this thread -1.

I heard a gunshot and then jumped for cover, but I was hit. I felt it as it threw me forward, however, I got up only to look down at myself on the ground. Then I started to run from the scene. Then I woke up. That was a pretty crazy dream. I haven't thought about it in years...
