"Politchmiov" was written, recorded & abandoned some 12-13 years ago. I must have had very little regard for the track: the only remaining recording of it existed on a cassette, the ending having been accidentally taped over years back. The version that appears on "Bad Guy!" is virtually identical to the abbreviated cassette version, with just some strategically placed moog squawks added to fill things out.


OK, well...

Leto took it hard when she heard the sound of
Her name taken in vain
I have trouble with the middle ground though
That's where they tell me it's best to be

Your life is just a myth
They told you when you were small
But you certainly seem convinced
That you really do exist

Now polish me off
Go ahead, polish me off

This is something that I can't feel and
I don't mind that
I don't think so

Polish me off
Yes polish me off
