No-one seems to get turned on these days,
Without an assortment of whips and chains,
I'll be just grateful if I ever get laid,
But I don't see that happening,
Cus my tastes are reasonably vanilla,
No unhealthy fascination with serial killers,
Rather than the lead track I sometimes like the filler,
And I don't enjoy a battering.

Everyone seems so hung up on suffering,
Whatever happened to kissing and a-cuddling?

Auto-erotic asphyxiation,
What a mouth-full - hand me my PlayStation,
But Britain is now an S and M nation,
Fifty shades of decay,
Banning butt plugs is not my intention,
So what if you're turned on by constipation?
I've not got that much imagination,
What can I say?

Now I don't condone excessive mothering,
But who in their right minds finds tenderness so troubling?

It's happy hour for the golden showers,
Sub or dom well you can't go wrong,
The new buzzword - what's your safe-word?
Get a psychotic wife or a jailbird.

Lipstick marks trade place for cuts and bruises,
Gimp costumes - it just confuses me,
It's all somewhat detestable,
People doing it in lay-by's,
While other people touch themselves nearby,
Micheal Hutchins might not have died,
If he'd been a bit more sensible.

The Victor Pope Band Edinburgh, UK

They have been described as quality quirky pop punk, post-punk and sounding a little bit like Jonathan Richman. But I prefer to describe them as Nerd Rock. The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...? ... more
