Super Furry Animals - Receptacle for the Respectable Lyrics

It took a long time for me to get over
Your incredible ways
And now I'm minded to wipe out the memory
Of the way you behave

Yes, as a receptacle
For the respectable

I took some time out to study your actions
Of how painted towns red
And if my worst fears came to fruition
I'm sure you'd leave us all dead

I was so gullible
And now I'm cynical

Ba ba ba ba ba
We're all susceptible
To the incredible

Tell me, tell me, tell me again
'Cause it's very inane
Are you pleased to see me suffer ever?

Tell me, tell me, explain again
'Cause it's very inane
Are you pleased to see me suffer ever?

Tell me, tell me, tell me again
'Cause it's very inane
Are you pleased to see me suffer ever?

Tell me, tell me, explain again
'Cause it's very inane
Are you pleased to see me suffer ever?

Welcome as a storm cloud in the late December gloom
Subtle as a nail bomb in the head
You came to me in peace and left me in pieces

Woo, woo, woo, woo
Receptacle for the respectable
Receptacle for the respectable
