Garbage Returns, Wants "Blood for Poppies"

4/4/12

As songs loosely based off Luis Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou go, the new Garbage single, "Blood for Poppies," is probably a close second to The Pixies classic "Debaser." That is by no means a slight to Garbage's first single off their first studio album in seven years.

With a swelling guitar hook, and a refrain of "oh-oh-ohhh" taken straight from Laura Branigan's Self Control, Garbage has delivered a vintage 90's alt-rock tune. Check out the official video below.

BFP (as no one is calling it) is available now on Itnues. Not Your Kind of People is out May 15.

Blood for Poppies lyrics are below.

To lift the sun,
I've been sitting here all night long
Rolling rock, over Buddah with the longhorn
Got a hole, rip a pocket off my uniform
With the black watch boys
Get your heads down
Oooh
Duty calls, but it's way too late
I'm too far gone
Waiting for God, oh hell
With my pants down
Crack the stash
Then be quiet in the midday sun
I miss my dog, and I miss my freedom
Ooh ooh oohh

Chorus: I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know i'm here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know i'm right
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know i'm here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know i'm right

I hate the things I think about you
When I'm all alone
I know you're tough
But I've been gone
For so long
Play the memories of you
Inside my head
So all these pictures of us
Burn and radiate
Watch the clouds, and I'm falling
Falling through the cracks
Head beats
And my heart is pounding fast
Off the ground
Into the starry dark, into your arms
I'm falling
Ooh ooh oohh

Chorus:

I pray my body's right
I've got to stay alive
I've gotta take a chance and keep on moving
Keep on moving

Chorus: x2
