Chrome Plated Suicide

Wayne's Notes from A Collection Of Songs Representing An Enthusiasm For Recording...By Amateurs: The Flaming Lips 1984-1990:

"I think someone showed me the chords to 'Sweet Child of Mine' by Guns 'N Roses."


If all my dreams were a tidal wave
And every day was Christmas
We could spend our lives in the drip
At the edge of the world

'Cause love does things that you can't see
It's like telepathic surgery
And it cuts and scrapes
Just like Iggy Pop thrown in a hole

If you take away my nerves
And leave just my words
Love could be the best thing in the world

You and me in a chrome reflection
'Cause we were born to suffer some
Please dont chase me from this jail
You know it looks so nice

If all my dreams were a microwave
And every day was summer
When I feel this way, you know
We should start our own religion

If you take away my nerves
And leave just my words
Love could be the best thing in the world
And if you take away my pain
Please don't leave my brain
'Cause when I think it hurts just the same

And if you take away my pain
Please don't leave my brain
'Cause when I think it hurts just the same

Live

"Chrome Plated Suicide" was played live at the time of its release and was briefly resurrected years later with the Wayne-Michael-Steven-Ronald lineup.
