The Metric System
(Brian Molko ft Trash Palace)
Lyrics and explanation



The Metric System

Lyrics Brian Molko
The Metric System
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

Rock boy is genital suck juice mad
His delicious apparatus would flutter and
Tremble after pubic worship
He would freeze it in a jar and sell it to
Celebrity lesbians
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
They want to buy it in kilos
They want to buy it in grams

They want to buy it in kilos
They want to buy it in grams
You know they’re down with the metric system
And they never fuck around

They want to buy it in kilos
They want to buy it in grams
You know they’re down with the metric system
And they’re paying by the pound

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

Les Inrocks :  Is it this subversive side that attract you in the musical project Trash Palace, by the French Dimitri Tikovoï?

Brian Molko : It was just for fun! Dimitri Tikovoï is my buddy. We have the same sense of humour, porn makes us laugh. What is strange is that people, the media, everybody took us very seriously. So, it was even more jubilant. On another note, I've also work with the German DJ Timo Maas.

Brian Molko, Les Inrockuptibles, November 2004



(Translation, quote in French here)

Brian, some times ago you talked about a concept album about pornography in collaboration with another artist. How is this project progressing ? Who is this artist ? When will this project be released ?

Brian : The artist in question is a French named Dimitri, whose nickname is the vibrator. He made an electronic record in French about pornography on wich I figure as well as John Cale, Jean-Louis-Murat. We wrote texts for Dimitri. I wrote one a la William Burrough.
It is the story of a guy who lives in Los Angeles and who sells his sperm to celebrity lesbians so they can have children : that's the story. But it was very interesting to work on this record because it's a kind of music that is very different from what we do usually, and I love this kind of music.
It should be out this summer.

Brian Molko, Interview, M6 music 2001



(Translation, quote in French

When I worked with Placebo, I had Brian Molko listen to a song, asking him if he would work on it with me. He find the project very interesting. He said "Great! It's about sex! I want to do something like that too" and we did the song "Metric System".
