about

Newly remastered and released, Salome was originally recorded at Brooklyn's Blue Monster Studios. This track features bassist Madelyn Burgess on lead vocals and remains one of our fans' all-time, live show faves...You coulda' heard a pin drop every time we played it. Listen to it. You'll understand why.

lyrics

Are there things about you that you keep from all your friends?
Don't tell me. I don't want to know.
All those things about your heart,
Without an end, without a start
Don't tell me it will only disappoint.
Oscar Wilde never had such problems
With any of his men.
He became, for them, Salomé.
Tonight I will dance the Dance of the Seven Veils,
Only I will do it for you in reverse.

CHORUS: You won't even get my number
You'll barely even see my face
Snake child, little dancer,
I won't be your Salomé

Put me on a pedestal or ask me on a date
Or better, keep it to yourself as you rub my feet.
I'm no ordinary dancer
I'm no simple tease.
The more I dance, the less you'll see.

You won't even get my number
You'll barely even see my face.
Snake child, little dancer.
I won't be your Salomé
