Look into those eyes
In a haze
In one quick second
There goes his blade

Smiler with a knife
Smiler with a knife
Well, what's it to your life?

Another victim on the way
Tiptoeing cautiously
Watch out for he may strangle you
On this very day

Smiler with a knife
Smiler with a knife
Well, what's it to your life?

Seconds pass as the lust grows
More blood must be sewn
His savagery will be displayed
From every corner and enclave

Re: Smiler with Knife Lyrics

Thank you! Though none of Moz's albums show a huge trust in other humans, is it just me or do these lyrics for Smiler (should they be real) affirm that this album is particularly lacking in trust? Some think World Peace will be his best album since Vauxhall - to me it seems to be his least hopeful (in terms of what the lyrics portray) or trusting since Vauxhall.

If this is the full set of lyrics, it is worryingly trite without musical accompaniment - certainly not as engaging as the title. The last verse is very awkward, especially forcing the cliche of spilled or shed blood into sewn blood to rhyme with grows.

In terms of his stalker/prey lyrics, "Jack The Ripper" remains the exemplar. "Ambitious Outsiders" was a B-minus. This is hovering around the low C mark - of course, grading on the curve.

"Mountjoy," on the other hand, was more representative of past work.

Can anyone confirm these lyrics?
Joe Frady via Twitter?
Or can a mod confirm if this is the same reliable anonymous poster who gifted us with the lyrics to "Mountjoy"?

As the guy who posted Mountjoy I can't confirm or deny it. I was really only able to hear Mountjoy, Staircase, and Kick the Bride. And I will admit I can't remember the final lyrics to University so was uneasy speculating.

What's to trust?

Didn't a few of the recent reviews imply that the lyrics to this song are sexual in nature? I think someone even described it as "erotic". I'm not really seeing that here...

What's to trust?
I largely agree, but I thought it interesting when you put past albums into perspective; Ringleaders was lyrically quite forward looking and optimistic, especially with At Last I Am Born as the closer, and Refusal was the same in parts. Perhaps something has changed his outlook in recent years.

" ~ Joe Frady ‏@JoeFrady Could you be so good Keith as to confirm another lyric, for us waiting wonderers: http://www.morrissey-solo.com/threa...Lyrics?p=1986847456&viewfull=1#post1986847456 … Aye or Naw?


~ Keith Cameron ‏@KeithCameron2

@JoeFrady That's a 'naw' I'm afraid. The title's the same, otherwise the actual lyrics are completely different!"


A question ~ why bother?

Here are the some of the real lyrics

See in me the side of you
that sometimes makes you jump with fright
Smiler with knife it's your big night
Sinking bed all warm and clear
only sadness waits for me
Smiler with knife you're just in time
you're just in time
Press the blade against my skin
never to make love again
smiler with knife it's alright
surrender will I am before you
I am sick to death of life
smiler with knife alight
alight
