30.An Emotional Fish - Celebrate (An Emotional Fish,1990)




Irish band who first recorded for U2's Mother label.The first album is the one that contains "Lace Virginia",a remarkable song available in many formats and alternate versions.A great debut album from a band that never again reached such heights. Perhaps a testament to its quality is how incredibly hard to find An Emotional Fish is, meaning fans are unwilling to part with it.



Celebrate

She insists that she's a lunatic, closer to the bone
She hardly ever visits upstairs, ride the telephone
Well I guess beauty does what beauty does best
It's beautiful

See that's the trouble with reality, it's taken far too seriously
I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children

Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home
Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home

His essential complications are hung up and confused
It's a planet full of traffic lights and traffic light abusers
But that's no stranger than strange
Or any other stranger

He claims it's dangerous to be innocent 'cause you're the victim every time
Histories of insanity intruding on the sane

Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home
Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home

Histories of insanity intruding on the sane
Even if your problem is the problem do we have to play those games?
But all this is enough
For anyone to shoulder

See that's the trouble with reality, it's taken far too seriously
I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children

Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home
Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home
Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home
Celebrate
This party's over
I'm going home

Regarding the snippet "...ride the telephone". Is the lyric from an authoratative source (i.e., published by the band)? I've always heard this as "would rather telephone". Likewise, "..traffic light abusers" sounds to me like "traffic light abuse". I just cannot hear the extra syllable.
