Lyrics : Placebo

Bruise Pristine

The means are ripe for taking,
Fade to grey trying to be ruthless,
In the face of beauty
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me.

Bruise,
Pristine,
Serene,
We were born to lose.

Cast a line with a velvet glove
Reading like an open book,
In the hands of love
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me.

Bruise,
Pristine,
Serene,
We were born to lose.

Encore, encore….

Means are ripe for taking,
Fade to grey trying to be ruthless,
In the face of beauty
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me.

Bruise,
Pristine,
Serene,
We were born to lose.
Press Quotes

"Are you ever embarassed by anything you've done in the past?
"Yeah, our very first single, "Bruise Pristine", and it's about to be released on a Fierce Panda compilation," blurts Brian, without hesitation. "We really hate that version, it's so fast and, honestly, I do sound like Mickey Mouse on it. We were going to say no, but it's so ridiculous it has to be documented in some way. I can't really understand where this helium thing came from. My balls have dropped since then."


Brian Molko, Melody Maker, October 1998



"Oh yes - you've had experiences of this vibrant Middle England conurbation. Didn't they throw bottles of piss at you onstage?"


"Yeah, but that's because I insulted them. My big mouth getting me into trouble again. I Think I dedicated Bruise Pristine to "50,000 crimes against fashion". It took them a while to realise there was 50,000 of them, then the bottles started flying. But we've dodged worse: cans of beer, used condoms, people throwing bullets."


Brian Molko, FHM, October 2000



Bruise Pristine édition spéciale
"perfect peice of trash: What is that picture on the front of the Bruise Pristine original fierce panda release?"
Brian: "It's a Cecil Beaton photograph of children in a bomb shelter during the Blitz."

(Translation, quote in French here)

PLACEBO : FIRST TIME ON THE RADIO

Brian : It was
36 Degrees, the first time I heard us on the radio. It was most probably in a taxi...
Stefan : For me it was Bruise Pristine, the DJ played it at the wrong speed. He thought the voice was too high for a guy so he played it from 45s to 33s. It was our first time on the radio.
Brian : I don't remember that.


Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal, M6 Music, March 2004
