The Sisters of Mercy. Produced by Jim Steinman. This Corrosion Lyrics. This Corrosion, goes back to the conflict between Eldritch and his former band mates who were now in The Mission. The lyrics are a parody of clichéd meaningless rock lyrics as especially Wayne Hussey wrote them: It is, of course, directed at somebody and it doesn’t take a genius to work out who, although it’ll probably take the person concerned some considerable time. Nearly all of should be thought of in quotation marks. It would be too confusing to print them all.

Initially, the song was to become the second single by The Sisterhood, but Eldritch changed these plans and kept the track for the second The Sisters of Mercy studio album Floodland. Various demo versions of the song are, however, circulating with Andrew Eldritch and/or James Ray (of The Sisterhood in that case) on vocals.
