Assume The Perpendicular Lyrics


Divine Comedy Assume The Perpendicular


Slip on your Barber jacket, jump in my old MG
Weíre off to the depths of Somerset to see what we can
see see see
We donít wanna drink the cider, we donít wanna walk for
miles
We just want to go to a stately home built in the
Georgian style

I canít abide a horizontal life
Itís time to rise, assume the perpendicular
Jump up and down, make complimentary sounds
And talk about nothing in particular

Crunch up the gravel driveway, gasp at the grand facade
Just for today weíre lords and ladies, oh what a gay
charade!
Lavinia loves the lintels - Anna, the architraves
Benís impressed by the buttresses thrust up the chapel
knave

I canít abide a horizontal life
Itís time to rise, assume the perpendicular
Jump up and down, make funny little sounds
And talk about nothing in particular

Weíll walk the grounds by Capability Brown
Get lost for days inside the manicured maze
Weíll bump our heads jumping on a four-post bed
And weíll ride for free
On the ladders round the walls of the circular library

I canít abide a horizontal life
Itís time to rise, assume the perpendicular
Jump up and down, make wild ecstatic sounds
And talk about nothing in particular
Nothing in particularÖ
