Tinseltown

Nightfall on tinsel town
All the moonbeams streaming down
On the dreams of man
In a tranquil land
On the diamond sea
Glittering endlessly
All is held spellbound
Down in tinsel town

Gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna love, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love
So gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love

Dead boys, fantasists, creeps, cobras, communists
Freaks, queers, imbeciles, death squads, masochists
Hippies, gypsies, cannibals, headshrinkers, amazons
Rebels, pagans, cynics, martyrs, raiders, pirates, animals

Gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna love, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love
So gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love

Barbarians, vampires, catholics, protestants
Scum, prophets, outcasts, Satanists, warriors
Mannequins, sadists, romantics, sluts, prodigals
Pimps, psychos, angels, perverts, idiots, zombies

Gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna love, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love
So gimme love, gimme, gimme, gimme
Love, Love
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
Love, Love

Dream just dream away
Just dream away

Nightfall on tinsel town
All the glitter streaming down
Incandescent dreams
In ascendancy
On the astral plane
All is silent once again
As the stars look down
Over tinsel town

Song Notes

Mark said of the song during the writing of Meltdown:

A 9 minute epic which goes on a music oddessy, covers every genre from 4 to the floor handbag to sonic youth spaz outs and kraut rock.
