Susie’s on the phone and she’s crying because her husbands not there.
You said that she was special but now it seems you just couldn’t care.
She’s been through this before and she’s damned if she will do it again.
Susie’s on the phone and if you don’t pick up she’ll kill your children.

Poor Susie

With her Myra Hindley hairdo and her arms around your babies tight.
They’re seen heading past the bank in a stop motion dance in black and white.
She’s run hosepipe through the window from the tailpipe of the family car.
Puts the children on the back seat as you have one for the road at the bar.

Poor Susie

As you stumble down your street you see a crowd has gathered up ahead.
There’s flashing lights and uniforms and someone’s screaming “mummy’s dead”
The poison took her first and your smart child knew how to unlock the door.
And the eyes that turn to you burn home the fact that you’re not loved anymore

And they sing
I Can
Hold My Breath Forever
I Can
Hold My Breath Forever
I Can
Hold My Breath Forever
I Can
Hold My Breath Forever
