Adulterers, Liars & Thieves

lyrics

Klaus works nights from 10 ‘til dawn, filming porn.
Elke slips the milkman one when Klaus has gone.

And the milkman’s wife is making plans with the loudmouth at the taxi stand,
who will always take a helping hand if you are short a fare.

Adulterers, liars and thieves, need the longest memories.
What tangled webs we weave, when we set out to deceive.

Now the milkman’s made his free delivery,
Elke lets him lounge around in Klaus’s gown.

And the milkman’s wife was packed to go, but the taxi driver never showed.
Being wise to where her husband goes, she’s now back on his trail.

Adulterers, liars and thieves, need the longest memories.
In all our histories, can’t we evolve beyond these?

Stealing prints to sell them on at Cafe Braun,
Klaus gets caught and now he’s done. They’ve sent him home.

All the journey back to his abode, the taxi driver won’t leave him alone.
Whilst the milkman’s wife invades his home, ripping at Elke’s hair (she says)

Adulterers, liars and thieves, need the longest memories
What tangled webs we weave, when we set out to deceive.

Adulterers, liars and thieves, spanners, suitors, schleppers and screens.
In all our histories, can’t we evolve beyond these?

Damage, carnage and contradictions leave the Wachtmeister with 5 convictions.

Adulterers, liars and thieves, need the longest memories
What tangled webs we weave, when we set out to deceive.

Adulterers, liars and thieves, Otto Dix just paints what he sees.
Throughout our histories can’t we evolve beyond these...
Can’t we evolve beyond these?
