Revenge Recommends: "White" by The Cult


It is often the case that a demo version of a song will prove superior to the final polished version. As the song is pushed through production, the creative spark may dim a little. This seems to be the case with White from the Cult's 1991 album Ceremony. This demo version has got less pomposity and more verve than the final album cut. The lyrics are also markedly different.

Lyrics:

White
White
Shining
Shining bright
White
White
Shining
Shining bright

Eyes cold
I sit back watch the sun turn to gold
In the morning love is pure
The sex is healing
No way I’m dealing

White
White
Shining
Shining bright
White
White
Shining
Shining bright

In the forest
the hunter waits
on pure white stallion
watching dove in flight
The single tablet
led by the arrow
the brave is dead
Blood on the snow, yeh

Blood on the snow, yeh
The brave’s busted
The brave’s bust
The brave’s bust time time ta-time time

White
White
Shining
Shining bright
White
White
It’s warming
Its warming bright

White
White
Shining
Shining bright
White
White
Shining
Shining bright

And I know that love is real
but sometimes it feel
It sometimes feel
the will to survive when the killing is done
That’s all we know said Bobby, yeh

Shining brightly
Sun is only
White …white …white …
Oooh ooh!
