Album

Killing an Arab is the first single by The Cure. It was recorded at the same time as their first LP in the UK, Three Imaginary Boys 1979, but not included on the album. However, it was included on the band's first US album, Boys Don't Cry 1980. This song lends two of its lines to the titles of one of The Cure's compilation albums, Standing on a Beach, and to its CDvideo counterpart Staring at the Sea. Killing An Arab Standing on the beach With a gun in my hand Staring at the sea Staring at the sand Staring down the barrel At the arab on the ground I can.

However it was included on the band's first US album, Boys Don't Cry 1980. Composer Robert Smith has said that the song was a short poetic attempt at condensing my impression of the key moments in L'Étranger The Stranger by Albert Camus Cure News number 11, October 1991. The lyrics describe a shooting on a beach, in which the Arab of the title is killed by the song' read more. Killing an Arab.

Killing An Arab. Words by Robert Smith. Standing on a beach With a gun in my hand Staring at the sea Staring at the sand Staring down the barrel At the Arab on the ground See his open mouth But hear no sound. Im alive Im dead Im the stranger Killing an Arab. I can turn and walk away Or I can fire the gun Staring at the sky Staring at the sun Whichever I choose It amounts to the same. Absolutely nothing. Feel the steel butt jump Smooth in my hand Staring at the sea Staring at the sand Staring at myself Reflected in the eyes of The dead man. He wrote Killing an Arab after reading Albert Camus 1942 novel The Stranger, which features the central character murdering an Arab man on the beach for no clear reason after attending his mothers funeral. The Cure compilation albums Standing on a Beach and Staring at the Sea were named after lyrics in Killing an Arab, though Smith has an uneasy relationship with the song. Some critics felt it advocated violence against Arabs, and after September 11th, Smith changed the lyric to Kissing an Arab, Killing an Ahab and, most recently, Killing Another
