About Dirty Epic

"Dirty Epic" is a 1994 single by Underworld. The track was originally released in an instrumental form as "Dirty" in 1992, credited to the group's short-lived alias, Lemon Interupt. It was reworked with lyrics for their 1994 album, dubnobasswithmyheadman, and was released as a single in the USA on 18 July 1994. The original Lemon Interupt mixes "Dirty" and "Dirty Guitar" were included on the "Dirty Epic" single, now credited to Underworld. Later pressings of "Dirty", as found on Underworld's greatest hits album 1992-2002, as well as the 20th anniversary reissue of dubnobasswithmyheadman, omit a minute-long coda which consists of a sample from Geinoh Yamashirogumi's "Dolls Polyphony" (as heard from their soundtrack to the 1988 anime film Akira,) the synth pads of "Dirty" and some radio static.

Sweet in winter sweet in rain 
Shake well before use she said
You never touch me anymore this way
Connector in
Receiver out
You let me in through the back door
Ride the sainted rhythms on the midnight train to romford
Ride the sainted rhythms

Sweet in winter sweet in rain
Shake well before use she said
You never touch me anymore this way

Oh no

Connector, connector, connector, connector
You're a connector, connector, connector, connector

I'm so dirty
And the light blinds my eyes
You're oh so dirty
And the light it blinds my eyes
Here comes christ on crutches

Call me wet trampoline she said today
Well I was too busy with my hand
Shake well before use she said
But you never touch me anymore
I was busy listening for phone sex
Coming through the back door
In skin-tight trunks
And we all went mental and danced

I get my kicks on channel six 
To the off-peak electricity
And the light blinds my eyes
And I feel dirty
And the light blinds my eyes
And I feel so shaken in my faith
Here comes christ on crutches
And here comes another god
Here comes another god
Like a buffalo thunder

With a smell of sugar
And a velvet tongue
And designer voodoo
And I got phone sex to see me through the emptiness in my 501s
Freeze-dried with a new religion
And my teeth stuffed back in my head

I get my kicks on channel six 
I
I get my kicks on channel six

The light it burns my eyes
And I feel so dirty (feel so dirty)
Here comes christ on crutches (christ on crutches)

I will not be confused
Will not be confused
They left me confused
I will not be confused...with another man
This pressure of opinions
Lighten up
Listen to your eyes you said
But all I could see was doris day
In a big screen satellite
Disappearing down the tube hole on farringdon street
With whiplash willy the motor psycho

And the light it burns my eyes
And the light it burns my eyes
Get my kicks on channel six
I get my kicks on channel six

Underworld

The underworld or netherworld is thought to be deep underground or beneath the surface of the world in most religions and mythologies. Typically it is a place where the souls of the recently departed go, an afterlife or a Realm of the dead. Chthonic is the technical adjective for things of the underworld. more »
