The words "And feel your tongue teasing and receiving. With your spit still on my lip." is taken from the lyrics of "Houdini" from the album "The Dreaming" by Kate Bush.
The art work of the album was depending on this song.
This song was inspired from the life of Bess and Harry Houdini, especially their keywords "Rosabelle Believe".

images
The keywords "Rosabelle Believe" was only known by Bess and Harry Houdini.
He promised to her that he would come back next world (heaven or hell or something else) if Harry Houdini died before Bess's death (and actually he died 1926). And, he would tell to her the keywords to proof of his success to escape there.
So, after his death, many people appeared to her, and told they met him. But nobody could tell the keywords.
It is said the promise was in order that he debunked parapsychology and mediumship.
