Siouxsie And The Banshees - The Staircase (Mystery) Lyrics




Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down

Slide down the banister
Take the escalator
Slide down the banister
Or try the elevator

I was standing on the landing
Now I'm standing in the hall
Looking up

Won't someone assist me
Solve this mystery
Somebody assist me
Arrange the symmetry

Muffled footsteps on the carpet
Spiral steps start spinning
Around me

Which floor which ceiling
You're off balance
Which floor which ceiling
It's all upside down

Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down...

  1. Ricardo Velasque Martinez

    Great amazing

  2. Pauldjreadman

    I didn’t realise until watching this video that there are only four members, I thought there was five?

  3. Jake Burns

    Only 42k views? This planet is populated by fannies!

  4. Glenn Forsyth

    Always liked this one....;

  5. Bill Perri

    Great drummer but thank god he left!

  6. davesaussieduster

    I think she could put one in the top corner from 25 yards!

  7. Mike Oliveira

    Incrível que pareça, conheci essa banda há pouco tempo, como de fato o futuro está no passado que a gente não conhece. Curto muito esse estilo, lembra The cure!

  8. xicanism

    forget siouxsie, john mckay is god

    Tom Schult

    His guitar playing does elevate their music quite a bit. Energetic and inventive. But they are all pretty cool cats if you ask me.

  9. Honoure the Fire

    Remember so well when this came out & the tour with the Cure as support

  10. sexobscura

    *those some dank, dark, crazy avant-garde dance moves she got goin' there*

  11. The Sun State

  12. motorbreath _77

  14. Jay M

    Jeff Neiss

    I sing this song to my cats whilst feeding them

    Jay M

    Jeff Neiss Haha sometimes I bust it out in a store & I’m like, Oh shit ppl are around Lol

    Filipe Matias

  15. Alex Moreno

    jesus osornio

    Maybe falling down stairs is their fear or something. You know how some are touchy when you talk about certain topics. Great tune, though :)

    Stare case lying face up
