about

Paraphylaxis is about teenage, hormonal love. It's about the insanity one feels during the period of adolescence and the extremes to which one may be pushed if their desires are not fulfilled. It's a bit ironic if you think about it.

lyrics

National anthem while I am standing
Over your body, hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off
Me or your pants on
See what you've done to me
King of Chevron
(x3)

On occasion, I’ve had the time to think
Of life and love in someone else’s skin
There is a girl, she lives down the street
And everything she does, she does for him
She whispers his name as she wanders down the street
And wonders out loud whether he will answer back
She can count the times on a hand with no digits
And the love that she wastes, she can put it on a plaque

National anthem
National anthem
National anthem
Do you think I'm pretty?

National anthem while I am standing
Over your body, hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off
Me or your pants on
See what you've done to me
King of Chevron

Axis
It’s an axis
It can bent and can twist at your feet
It’s an axis
Paraphylaxis
And it can stone and destroy the street
All you’ve known
And all you love
And that boy that you see time to time
He’s not here
She’s not there
And it’s all down to earth, lemon lime

It's a boy they cry as they shower her in love
And the years that have passed, they have taught the boy to know
If you want something, you can take it
If she gives you a heart, you can break it
For some, you know, it doesn't take a minute
And my love has clearly seen that way
I watch her as the peanuts cross her mouth
And I melt away like New Years Day

Do you think I'm pretty?

National anthem
Crying
Do you think I'm pretty?
National anthem
New Years Day
(x4)
