King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Iron Lung Lyrics

Lyrics Iron Lung – King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Hey, oh
I’m in jail
Body failed
Now it’s me and my iron lung

Wrapped in iron
Deathless purgatory
Negative pressure
Airless breath
Wrapped in iron
Deathless purgatory
Positive pressure
Airless death

It’s a different kind of cuttlefish
Swing and a miss
Dancing with my eyes and lips
Can’t move my hips
Keep my mind distracted from the swish-swish
Staying sane and positive
Can’t crumble like a biscuit

Iron lung
Iron lung
Iron lung
Iron lung

Space shuttle
Snail shell
Merry-go-round
Conveyor belt
The army tank ventilator
Mechanical bull respirator
Metallic cocoon boredom
Bionic boy
Pump my organs
Centre gravity
Planet me
Gimme the mushrooms
Time to leave

Iron lung
Iron lung
Iron lung..

Frog breath, steam tent
Neck paralysis
Frog breath, steam tent
Scared precarious
Frog breath, steam tent
Neck paralysis
Congestion in my chest
Pins and needles like a voodoo evil
Got my doctor baffled
Every breath is in uphill battle
Frog breath, steam tent
Neck paralysis
Congestion in my chest

Frog breath, steam tent
Neck paralysis
Frog breath, steam tent
Scared precarious
Frog breath, steam tent
Neck paralysis
Sedated me

Hey, oh
The ship sailed
Train derailed
Now it’s me and my iron lung

Wrapped in iron
Deathless purgatory
Negative pressure
Airless breath
Wrapped in iron
Deathless purgatory
Positive pressure
Airless death

It’s a different kind of cuttlefish
Swing and a miss
Dancing with my eyes and lips
Can’t move my hips
Keep my mind distracted from the swish-swish
Staying sane and positive
Can’t crumble like a biscuit

Iron lung
Iron lung
Iron lung..

Cylindrical prison
Newly arisen
Chained to a giant paper weight
Pain abates yet darkness permeates
Wallows my toes
Burdens my chest
My brain is pressed with an iron chest

Iron lung
Iron lung
Iron lung…
