Frank Booth & Anthrax (01/17)

Growing up I followed the top 40 more so than heavy metal, so it’s not too suprising that I missed this one. I learned this tidbit from some one very close to me:

The following Anthrax song is comprised of things that Dennis Hopper’s character Frank Booth said in David Lynch’s film Blue Velvet. In order to help jog your memory of both the film and song I have included lyrics and clips from the film.

Now It’s Dark :
In dreams I can rule your life
With me nothing’s ever right
Sing for me up on a stage
Keep your mind trapped in a cage
I’m your man I’m what you need
Dance with me but never lead
One deep breath will set me free

You know that I am…

One fuckin’ well dressed man!

now-its-dark21
but I can see
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me
Now it’s dark, your gonna be
Exactly what I want to see
Now it’s dark, Mommy
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me

A sensation
Of elation
Intoxication
Now it’s dark

A candy coated existence
Underneath is decadence
What was hidden you have found
Made it your own battleground
Pretty, pretty don’t say please
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me
You know that I am…

Now it’s dark, but I can see
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me
Now it’s dark, your gonna be
Exactly what I want to see
Now it’s dark, Mommy
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me

love-letter
Straight from the bottom of my heart
fucked-forever
The candy coated clown’s done his part

I’m your man I’m what you need
Dance with me but never lead
One deep breath will set me free
Don’t you fuckin’ look at me
You know that I am…
