Selected Lyrics

The vast majority of Sylvian lyrics can be found at and slowfire. I'll generally only transcribe newly released songs that aren't up elsewhere (or ones that contain interesting background samples or vocals) and live versions of unreleased songs.

Selected Lyric

Betty Caine

Track #09 - The Opiates // By: Thomas Feiner & Anywhen

Betty Caine
In her long lost spider garden

And Betty Caine
Knows the steps and secret places
All too bloody well

No, Betty Caine
She won’t come out of her haunted hide-out
Not until, not until spring has come
The sunken continents rose
And she’s gonna make ‘em sink again
