Lyrics for Dirty Epic as interpreted by dev0n

Dirty Epic Lyrics
sweet in winter sweet in rain. shake well before use she said.
you never touch me anymore this way.
connector in. receiver out. you let me in through the back door.

ride the sainted rhythms on the midnight train to romford.
ride the sainted rhythms.
sweet in winter sweet in rain. shake well before use she said.
you never touch me anymore this way. oh no.
connector connector connector connector.
you're a connector connector connector connector.

i'm so dirty. and the light blinds my eyes.
you're oh so dirty. and the light it blinds my eyes.
here comes christ on crutches.

call me wet trampoline she said today. well i was too busy with my hand.
shake well before use she said but you never touch me anymore.
i was busy listening for phone sex
coming through the back door. in skin-tight trunks. and we all went mental...
and danced.

i get my kicks on channel six. i get my kicks on channel six...
to the off-peak...electricity.
and the light blinds my eyes. and i feel dirty.
and the light blinds my eyes. and i feel...so...shaken in my faith.
here comes christ on crutches.
and here comes another god. here comes another god like a buffalo thunder
with a...smell of sugar...and a velvet tongue...and designer voodoo.
and i got phone sex to see me through the emptiness in my 501s.
freeze-dried with a new religion. and my teeth stuffed back in my head.

i get my kicks on channel six. the light it burns my eyes.
and i feel so dirty. here comes christ on crutches.
i will not be confused. will not be confused. they left me confused.
i will not be confused...with another man.
this pressure of opinions.
lighten up. listen to your eyes, you said. but all i could see was doris day
in a big screen satellite. disappearing down the tube hole on farringdon street
with whiplash willy the motor psycho.
and the light it burns my eyes. and the light it burns my eyes.
i get my kicks on channel six...

"freeze-dried with a new religion. and my teeth stuffed back in my head."

I love this line. I love how the whole song is about squalor and discomfort, but with this line you can really feel it, your teeth stuffed back in your head. Weird...

someone just touched enlightenment, and the world is suddenly different.

This song always makes me think of the movie Videodrome

Like cyanogen said, it's about someone living their regular lives and somehow touching spitiual perfection, and not being able to deal with it- "I'm so dirty, and the light blinds my eyes." Sounds like the conversion experience of Apostle Paul. One of my favorite songs.

It's all about sex and sexual confusion.
Possibly the woman in question enjoys receiving anal sex. When he finds he enjoys this he's convinced it makes him gay.
Possibly he has a fascination with being a "receiver" as opposed to a "connector" or she convinced him to have a threesome with another man.
He is assured in his heterosexuality and has found his faith shaken.

There are sexual metaphors everywhere but the best one is the reference to Doris Day. Her name is synonymous with Rock Hudson because they were always paired together in romantic comedies. Rock was a deeply closeted homosexual.

Nice one, whybother?.

I was almost going to post that the song had no real meaning beyond themes of sex, porn and murkiness, but in one listening you've pulled me round to your view.

I love this tune because of the bleak and murky vibe. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Does nobody else love the line "I get my kicks on channel 6"?

As far as I know, this song is about Underworld (illegally?) listening to people's phone conversation (channel 6? connector in. receiver out?). I learned this in an interview with them, and they said that it eventually became too much, because people laid their emotions bare, and there were all sorts of family secrets discussed (affairs, etc.).

This interpretation of the song make more sense if you listen to the remix, which features fragments of sentences rather than these lyrics.

it's 100% about sex & masturbation - that's about it

resonator, that makes a lot of sense. i was inclined to agree with ANorthernSoul76 and say it had no particular meaning other than technological paranoia, sex and emotional dysfunction related to sex. Maybe this is them just venting their disgust about hearing all those sordid secrets and deceitful/duplicitous lives.
