Video der Woche: The Cure – Lullaby [kw43/2016]


On candy stripe legs the Spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evenin‘ sun
Stealin‘ past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searchin‘ out fear in the gathering gloom
And suddenly a movement in the corner of the room
And there is nothing I can do when I realize with fright
That the Spiderman is having me for dinner tonight

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now, closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don’t struggle like that or I will only love you more
For it’s much too late to get away or turn on the light
The Spiderman is having me for dinner tonight

And I feel like I’m being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning
I will wake up in the shivering cold
And the Spiderman is always hungry



Lullaby – Schlaflied – ist eine Single vom 1989er Album Disintegration. Der Song ist nicht nur die erfolgreichste der Band in ihrem Heimatland (Platz 5 in den UK Charts), auch das Video gewann 1990 den Preis als Best British Video der Brit Awards. Vollkommen verdient! Arachnophobiker schwören drauf.
