Missing In Action  

Hello daily life
I don't want to fight today
I surrender
I'll put my toys away
No aliens came
I lost my little light
It was so well explained
Now I'm getting older as I write
What's that sound?
What's that light?
What's that sound?
Missing in action
What's that light?
Missing in action
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack
One childhood
The little kid retired
He surrendered
His parking space expired
Wave bye-bye
Ghost writer in the sky
He'll see you soon
Now I'm getting older as I write
What's that sound?
What's that light?
What's that sound?
Missing in action
What's that light?
Missing in action
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack
Lost in the last attack

Baby  

I don't want to be your 'baby'
I don't want to have to call for you
It's not my fault don't blame me
I won't be crawling around anymore

You wrap me up
Poor Chinese feet
The clothes I wear
The make me weak

I'm not trying to run
Before I can walk

The pillows talk
They talk to me
Poor Chinese feet
They tell me to walk
Talk talk talk
Say something
Say something
'Baby-baby-baby-baby'

Independence Day  

A declaration
Of the intention
To stop extension into my airspace
I'll put the flags up
Pull up the anchor
And then you'll know you're in a different place
And I can't stand up and I can't sit down
'cause a great big problem stop me in my tracks
I can't relax 'cause I haven't done a thing
and I can't do a thing 'cause I can't relax

You've got your habits
I've got my customs
I'm sure you know it's got to be this way
No hesitation
And in the future
We'll celebrate on Independence Day
And I can't stand up and I can't sit down
'cause a great big problem stop me in my tracks
I can't relax 'cause I haven't done a thing
And I can't do a thing 'cause I can't relax
Independence Day
Independence Day
Independence Day
Independence Day

Hang out the flags ring in the new,
We should be dancing on the city streets
I kmow the tune, I know the words,
My mouth is open but I cannot speak
And I can't stand up and I can't sit down
'cause a great big problem stop me in my tracks
I can't relax 'cause I haven't done a thing
And I can't do a thing 'cause I can't relax
Independence Day
Independence Day
Independence Day
Independence Day

Waiting For A Miracle  

Sun sets over domes and spires
Like a magic circle
It's over her head and under her tyres
It's incidental
But she only has time for essential dreams
So she's still waiting
Cause it seems like there's nothing in the heart of the beas
I hear her saying
What kind of life is this?
It's in suspension
What kind of life is this?
Nothing happens

It's party time at the top of the hill
The air is freezing
And the grass is like wire in between the trees
The room is shaking
And I wish that I had more faith than this
I see her dancing
And if I could dance would she dance with me?
And then she might say
What kind of dance is this?
It's in suspension
What kind of dance is this?
Nothing happens

Waiting for a miracle
Oh but nothing ever happens
Waiting for a miracle
Oh but nothing ever happens
Waiting for a miracle
Oh but nothing ever happens
Waiting for a miracle
Oh but nothing ever happens
Nothing ever happens
Nothing ever happens
Nothing ever happens
Nothing ever happens

Total War  

We walk the streets together
With smiles on our faces
We talk nice to each other
And we listen when we have to
Maybe it's just over-rated
Maybe I'm just isolated
We walk the streets together
We walk the streets together

You don't like my friends
You don't like my clothes
You think that I'm crazy
Any other girl would just pass over
Any other girl would just pass over

Nothing ever comes between us
A no-man's land, a danger zone
Look at us prop up the pieces
We live together on our own
Maybe it's just over-rated
maybe I'm just isolated
We walk the streets together
We walk the streets together

You don't like my friends
You don't like my clothes
You think that I'm crazy
Any other girl would just pass over
Any other girl would just pass over
Any other girl would just pass over
Any other girl would just pass over

This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl

Any other girl would just pass over
Any other girl would just pass over

This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl
This is total war, girl

This is total war, girl
Total war
This is total war, girl
Total war
This is total war, girl
Total war
This is total war, girl
Total war

On The Beach  

As I ride the motor tide
I look for somewhere
All I see is other faces,
all I find is nowhere
I'll like a place or
some space that no-one gets up to
She says "A town is just a town, full stop."
but what does she know?
Here comes a great wave to wash it all away
No piece of glass or chrome remains
Here comes that wave again, see how fast it flows
We'll wash this place right down the drain

In the dark a thousand
cars hiss by my window
A steel tide on a asphalt beach
they come and they go
I hear a beat in the motor seat
that I could die too
She says "A town is just a town, full stop."
but what does she know?
Here comes a great wave
Here comes that wave again

Monkey Pilot  

Sometimes I feel out of control
2,000 miles away you take a shower
To keep the fur at bay,
I shave on the hour
3 says I'll see you 4 says I won't
5 days I'll go up tonight

The sun casts black shadows on the Pan-Am roof
And an airport detective rolls over
Sometimes I forget what some of the dials do
Maybe I'll go up tonight
Sometimes I feel out of control
Look at the monkey in the sky
See him dip, see him swing
Look out the monkey in the sky
Look at the tears in his eyes
I put the square peg in the square hole
And the round one in my mouth
I'd take a spin but I don't bet
Maybe I'll go up tonight
Sometimes I feel I like a monkey pilot
Sometimes I feel out of control

Real Story  

Is it some kind of stupid joke
The fictions that he speaks
He says there's another world
haunting in the street
He hears waves of the cars go by
The city is a beach
He thinks he's in another place
when he goes to sleep

He got the word;
he got the real story
He got the word;
he got the picture
He got the word;
he got the real story
He got the word;
so we will never understand

I heard that he lost the beat
What a surprise
Now he's in unreal estate
until he dies

Map Of The World  

Graphs and grids and useless information
Dotted red lines around all the nations
Purple squares are over population
Yellow Lines are resource exploitation
Where do I live on this piece of paper?
This means that and that stands for something
This over here relates to another thing
I should know how but I wasn't listening
I play along but I don't know anything
Where do I live on this piece of paper?

I looked all over the 'world' but I didn't see
Anyone I know there, this tourist information
Adds up to nothing I know it's just a piece of paper

Postcard  

There is a house in the picture
Inside the house is a room
Once round it is a short circuit

When times are hard I think about you
Four walls, one has a window
One has a door, which I go out of
I just thought you'd like to know

I don't think you're listening
I think I'll tell you again

This clock shows only mythical hours
These books show only fictional days
One system is only as good as another

I don't think you're listening
I think I'll tell you again
I just thought you'd like to know

Home Is The Range  

Let's play this one for laughs
Let's make it never stop
If you catch it sinking in
Twist it back up to the top
All these homes and these gardens and the faces
Of The people, they're nothing, they're nothing
They're nothing to what we can do now
We are not hard to get, we aren't a hard target
Let's play this one for laughs

In any place at any time
Some things you never know
We watch the weather change at home to ground zero
All these book and this talk
And these silly little social diversions
All the food will be poisoned
All the money-no food for anything

If you catch him crying-just tell him
If you catch him crying again, just tell him he's
Got to swallow it
You can't stop crying just remember, just remember
We are not hard to get, we aren't a hard target
Let's play this one for laughs

We Were  








Eye Dance  

Here is expectation
Here is a dream
This is the way things should have been
And it's so sad, so sad, so sad
About the way things are
So sad, so sad, so sad, so sad

See his face, see his eyes
Full of trust, so unwise
Built it up, much too high
So unwise, so unwise

Here is anticipation
But no defence
How I hate his innocence
And it's too bad, too bad, too bad
About the way things are
Too bad, too bad, too bad, too bad

Sleep No More  

It's late but thereís no tiredness
I can see the city glow
And I'm sure there must be somewhere
We can go

Lights cut through the center
And the darkness hides it's shape
I'd swear it almost
Could be another place

When the world is covered over
And the stars are shining bright
We will make our escape
Into the night

Be Brave  

Can you hear it whispering?
Can you hear it whispering?
At the back of everything?
Can you hear it whispering?

Out of the dark, into the light
Looking for a way around it
When it calls we wonít hear
We will shout and weíll drown it out

At the back of everything
Like a constant threat
Can you hear it whispering?
Can you hear it whispering?
At the back of everything

So we sit around
And we make a joke
About the way things are
And how it wonít get anything

Gone  

So tired, so soon
What happened to you
What happened to you
You got lost
Somewhere between
Away round here
Somewhere between
So far so near
You got lost
Somewhere between
What happened to you

Someone has been removed
What happened to her
What happened to her
She got lost
Somewhere between
Away round here
Somewhere between
So far so near
She got lost
Somewhere between
What happened to her

You used to be so young
You used to be so young
It was going to take so long
The beat has almost gone
What is his name.?

Dark Parade  

He looks up
Straight ahead
There's something there
Now itís gone
Is it a bird
Or an aeroplane
Just like a thought
Itís there
Then itís gone

Over sea
Over sand
In the deserted heart
Of a desert land
Rotor blades
Like charred palm trees
Signify
No success
No release

Is it eight
Or is it nine
Who fall in
For the very last time
There is no rest
No release
At the oasis
These men
Reduced to this

The darkest parade

Diagram  

Here is expectation
Here is a dream
This is the way things should have been

And it's so sad, so sad, so sad
About the way things are
So sad, so sad, so sad, so sad

See his face, see his eyes
Full of trust, so unwise
Built it up, much too high
So unwise, so unwise

Here is anticipation
But no defence
How I hate his innocence

See his face, see his eyes
Full of trust, so unwise
Built it up, much too high
So unwise, so unwise

And it's too bad, too bad, too bad
About the way things are
Too bad, too bad, too bad, too bad

Restless  

The day  is winding  slowly  backwards
Iím trying  to remember  something  she said
But no sense remains
She has chased it all away

Sometimes  these things  are so hard  to say
Maybe  tomorrow  weíll talk  again
'Cos thereís no sense today
She has chased it all away
Sheís here then sheís there
And itís all up in the air

Goat Of The West  

He has played his biggest part
His country took him to his heart
The latest episode on the world wide screen
And it's the worst one I've ever seen

It's so funny
Did you see what happened
It's so funny
But I'm not laughing

He has lost his winning smile
He tried to show he's human too
I think we'll have to wait for a long long time
'Cos I just don't think it's true

It's so funny
Did you see what happened
It's so funny
And I'm not laughing

And I don't believe it
And I don't believe it
And I don't believe it

Light Years  

Hours pass
Distance grows
Where are you now?
Who knows?
There's a place
Where you were
But it seems so far
From here

Years of life
Waiting for
What might have been
No more
Tale our friends
Raise them up
Keep them safe
For us

Our Secret  

Every boy and every girl
All around the world
Lives in hope
Lives in hope

One world at one time
One world only
That's the secret
That's the secret

They will never
They will never
They will never
Give it up

It's a secret
It's not holy
It's in the blood
It's in the atmosphere

One world at one time
One world only
That's the secret
That's the secret

We will never
We will never
We will never
Give it up

Eye Of The Lens (*)  

I'm walking down a street where children play
When they see me they run away
She will not look at me, she won't say why
And when I ask her she just cries

No one will talk to me, they turn to go
Their faces say there's something I should know
Could I be a victim of the games of all my friends
Or am I really being watched by the eye of the lens

My world is empty now, no-one comes near
No-one can stand the smell of fear
Hours pass so slowly, time beats a drum
As I wait for what I hope won't come

No-one will talk to me, they turn to go
Their faces say there's something I should know
Could I be a victim of the games of all my friends
Or am I really being watched by the eye of the lens

Something's coming closer, I can only stare
The scream of silence fills the air
I was not a victim of the games of all my friends
Now I find myself behind the eye of the lens.

Another World (*)  

See her face and the clothes she wears
See her smile and those eyes of hers
She must be living in another world
Another world

At Sea (*)  

It's such a shame
Things to do
All of the time
All of the time
And it would be nice
To get away
For a little while
For a little while

Here it comes the change
Like a wave not to sink but to save
The waters close overhead
and it's so good to just - forget

It's funny how
The scenery
Looks better now
Looks better now
It's such a crime
That the ties are changed
For another kind
For another kind

Here it comes like a wave
Not to sink but to save
The waters close overhead
and it's so good to just - forget
So good to just forget

Do The Empty House (*)  

The roof is cracked and the rain is coming in
The floorboards creak and all the lights are dim
I think this place is getting pretty grim
Don't you?
Don't you?

There's no sense in staying when the premises are suspect
I have seen the signs and they all say 'To Let'
What we have still stands but I won't dwell on it
Anymore
Anymore

We've been living here for too many years
This place has had it's day, now it's time to leave
If we don't go soon, we might stay forever
Got to get out out out of here

Let's do the empty house
A place like this can affect your sense of mind
Let's do the empty house
Your sense of humour shriveled up and died
Let's do the empty house
Now all I want to do is get outside
Let's do the empty house
Don't you?
Don't you?

Red Planet Revisited (*)







After The Rain  

When the sky-full of tears
Is threatening to fall
Don't stand in the way
Come inside, close the door
The sky will clear again after the rain

When the clouds overhead
Want to capture your heart
Let them know you are strong
You will not be caught
The clouds will blow away after the rain

Fall fall fall fall fall fall fall
After the rain, no clouds over you
After the rain, sun yellow sky blue
After the Rain
Though you can't see it now
The sun never sets
It always does what you sometimes forget..,
The sun will shine again
After the rain
Fall, fall, fall, fall, Fall

Zinger  

The carpet is bluer then usual and
The rain hung in sheets from the sky
She couldn't think where to go
So she took a drink from the radio
O-zone o-zone o-zone o-zone

You don't get everything from a 3" speaker
Only the essentials
All human life is there in a caricature and cartoon
Don't stop the colours and ? and tune
O-zone o-zone o-zone o-zone
She took a drink from the radio

A taste of electricity is sometimes a surprise
A glimpse of the future is always a surprise

The talking parts gave her a headache
They made her frown
But when the music returned
She drank it down
O-zone o-zone o-zone o-zone
She took a drink from the radio

Now I Know  

Strange stories pass around
Low voices speak so loud
I thought that I knew
Now I do

When there's a space in what you know
All kinds of thoughts appear
It's so easy to believe the worst
When it's all you hear
Now I know
Now I know
About you
Now I know

You were a mystery
No one could help me solve
So I just had to see for myself
Now I know
Now I know
About you
Now I know

Strange stories pass around
Strange stories about you
Low voices speak so loud
I thought that I knew
Now I know

Close my eyes and close my ears
Nothing can hurt me
Now I know
No more doubts no more fears
No more guessing
Now I know

Not A Word  

Not a word
Not a word
Cos you know that a word would give you away

Not a sight
Or a sound
Cos you know that a sound would give you away
Give you away

I was just curious
I thought that you might have something to tell
But it's nothing serious
I found an old letter In the dust on the shelf

You'll have to speak to me one day
And I wonder what you will say
Just hope that you won't be talking in vain
In vain

Not a sign have you shown
You are the strangest girl I have ever known
Not a word in so long
That I starting to think I've done something wrong

You'll have to speak to me one day
And I wonder what you will say
Just hope that you won't be talking in vain
In vain

Not a word
Not a word
Not a word

Ju Ju Money  

Take a walk through the mirrored hallway
See the prizes hanging there
You can have anything you want
They'd sell us down the river
Without a second thought
So we'll just not get caught
Ju-ju money - funny money - magic money

Forget those lies you worship
Forget those big ideas
Money is a saner objective
They'd sell us down the river
Without a second thought
So we'll just not get caught
Ju-ju money - funny money - magic money

We turn it over in our hands and
Tilt the face into the light
It shines so bright it mesmerises
Ju-ju money - funny money - magic money

More  

More things than you have time for
More dreams than you can use
They fill up all the sky and fall into your eyes
Which ones today?
It looks like somebody here is dreaming
Funny things hanging in the air
Some have names, some have numbers, some are empty
And it's hard not to stare
More things than you have time for
More dreams than you can use
They fill up all the sky and fall into your eyes
Which ones today?
It's getting pretty crowded here just lately
They pile up to the ceiling, wall to wall
Some are games, some are phrases, some are crazy
Why you keep your dreams to yourself?
More things than you have time for
More dreams than you can use
They fill up all the sky and fall into your eyes
Which ones today?
Look out, here they come
More, more, more
More love
More, more, more
More money
More, more, more
More everything
More, more, more
More love

Pictures  

It wasn't out of cruelty I said goodbye today
But the pictures were turning yellow
I helped them on their way
The wind picks up the pieces
Blows them all around
Breathe in the smoke then breathe it out
I tore out all the pages one by one
Put them in the fire
Light shines almost brighter then before
One more time one more time
These times insult you with their doubts and fears
So I thought I'd stop them before the got too near
Scratch at your memory-whisper in the dark
They are everywhere and they are nowhere
I tore out all the pages one by one
Put them in the fire
Light shines almost brighter then before
One more time one more time
I was tired of explaining why you were still around
There were no more excuses to be made
The time has passed and it can be unkind
You didn't look so graceful in your old age
Tear out all the pages one by one
Put them in the fire
Light shines almost brighter then before
One more time one more time

Birdman  

Walking around I get tired the same sensations all the time
I want something no one sells
I'd rather be somewhere else
Up, up, up where the birds go
Up, up, up where they fly
Up, up, up like a birdman
Up, up, up like a bird
Dirty floors and unmade beds can someone else go to work instead
Money to burn time to waste
I want a taste
Up, up, up where the birds go
Up, up, up where they fly
Up, up, up like a birdman
Up, up, up like a bird
It's a long way down
Street and houses people toytown
And from here to as fas
As I can see there's no one higher then me.
Up he goes in to the air
And I want to see if he gets there
Before he falls
What ever else
He will fall depend on this
It's a long way down
Street and houses people toytown
And from here to as fas
As I can see there's no one higher then me.
He says he has to fly
Says he has to fly
Says he has to fly
Well come on fly
Walking around I get tired the same sensations all the time
I want something no one sells
I'd rather be somewhere else
Up, up, up where the birds go
Up, up, up where they fly
Up, up, up like a birdman
Up, up, up like a bird

Don't Look Now  

Now this is it!
The point where it stops
The fractions can't get any smaller
There still got much further to go
Counting the minutes and
Changing of the date

What Else!?  

Here's something peculiar
Here's something strange
Here's something which cannot be explained

She waits around in the cold for hours
Won't let me say why I'm late
Come inside let's talk it over
She walks away

I had to laugh - what else can you do
I had to laugh - wouldn't you, wouldn't you, wouldn't you

I know you have some ambitious plans
The big bad world did not agree
You feel caught in your circumstances
Don't take it out on me

You ought to laugh - it's not so hard to do
You ought to laugh - shouldn't you, shouldn't you, shouldn't you

It's not so important
It's nothing we can't solve
Why don't we get together
There's always something else

The wind is high the clouds are racing in the sky as we look out tonight
One by one the lights go out all around as we look out tonight

It's History  

You say you can't forget
All those silly things that I did
Well okay, but you know it's so long ago

It's history, it's history
There's no future in a memory
Stop holding on so stubbornly
Just let it go it's history

I've lost count of the number
Of times I have apologised to you
Yet you say it's not enough
But what more can I do

It's history, it's history
There's no future in a memory
Stop holding on so stubbornly
Just let it go it's history

It history, it's history
There's no future in a memory
Stop holding on so stubbornly
Just let it go it's history

After The Rain  

When the sky full of tears
Is threatening to fall
Don't stand in the way
Come inside, close the door
The sky will clear again
After the rain

When the clouds overhead
Want to capture your heart
Let them know you are strong
You will not be caught
The clouds will blow away
After the rain
Fall fall fall fall fall fall fall fall

After the rain, no clouds over you
After the rain, sun yellow sky blue
After the rain, after the rain
Though you can't see it now
The sun never sets
It always does what you sometimes forget
The sun will shine again
After the rain, after the rain
Fall fall fall fall fall fall fall fall

Private Party  



  

Mass






Will You Stay Tonight?  

Talking round in circles
Trying to find the perfect words
But they don't come to mind
They don't want to come to mind
Staying away from the subject
Hoping you might say it first
There's a chance that you won't
That I can't afford to take

Seconds turn to minutes
And the minutes turn to hours
How the time slips away
We've covered everything under the sun
And now there's nothing else to say
What do you say?

It's time to go
But it's to late to leave
So will you stay tonight?
Don't keep me in the dark
Why spend the after hours on your own

You might spend all your life
Looking for some ideal
Why not change something vague
For something you can feel
And if you were to ask me
Which choice I would makeÁ
I would loose myself tonight
Find myself some other day

Seconds turn to minutes
And the minutes turn to hours
And the time slips away
We've covered everything under the sun
And now there's nothing else to say
What do you say?

It's time to go
But it's to late to leave
So will you stay tonight?
Don't keep me in the dark
Why spend the after hours on your own

Alicia (Can You Hear Me?)  

I tried to get to you
But the message didn't get through
It's no surprise, it's nothing new
'Cause there are people in between
Who turn bright thoughts to icy cold
They say you've changed
Say it isn't so

Can you hear me, Alicia?
I remember what you said some time ago:
'Don't you think heaven
is something worth looking for?'

Though the years may come and go
What you said still fits somehow
Sometimes it seems it very clear
And it will amuse you when you hear
Who got caught and who got free
I can see you now laughing up your sleeve

Can you hear me, Alicia?
You take when most people would ask
You play for keeps when everyone plays safe
But I hope you never regret the moves you made
No looking back
No looking back
No looking back
Can you hear me, Alicia?

A World Away  

Push back the sheets,
Rub the sleep from your eyes
Raise your hand
And come out of your cover
No-one around
But the lights are still on
So let's walk
The bright highways together

And we could be
We could be
We could be
A world away
Lost in the light,
Feflections shining
In the night

I'm wondering how
I can best make the point
When the facts
Seem to lead to another
But one look at the way
that it's looking just now
Illustrates better than I could ever

And we could be
We could be
We could be
A world away
Lost in the light,
reflections shining
In the night

Nature Trails  

What it is, heaven knows.
Where the trail leads, well who can say?
Pick up the scent, it's stuck to your skin
Before you know it the chase begins

Nature trails, where she leads
Like a pet at her feet
Don't be sad, you'll be set free tomorrow
Some foreign place or distant shore
Cover the traces, lock all the doors
Those brighter lights confuse the eyes
But there's still one thing you recognise

Nature trails, when she leads
Come on, give up, you're on your knees
One mistake and you'll be there forever
Caught like a leaf in the wind
When Nature trails you had to follow too

Open the door and look inside
It's as you left yet it not quite right
The fading scent says something's wrong
Someone has been here, someone has gone

Nature trails, where she leads
Like a pet at her feet
Don't be sad, you'll be set free tomorrow
Nature trails, when she leads
Come on, give up, you're on your knees
One mistake and you'll be there forever
Caught like a leaf in the wind

Mister Memory  

In the place where you used to be
There's a noisy ghost, a restless space
And he doesn't know what is happening
So will you come and put his mind at ease
He's a haunted house, Mister Memory
Will you lay the ghost
Will you set him free
Set him free
Come and stop all the chattering
Stop the noise and give him peace
Cos he doesn't know what is happening
So will you come and put his mind at ease
He's a haunted house, Mister Memory
Will you lay the ghost
Will you set him free
Set him free

Island Heart  

Genie in a light brown bottle a little bitter in asides
She's fishing where the coast is not so clear
A ship in the night is putting out to sea
And it could be coming -
- could be coming -
- could be coming here
It's not her maiden voyage but she floats across the floor
Doesn't want to wait and see what gets washed ashore
Will you sail to this island heart?
Will you sail to this island heart?
I'd never heard that kind of thing in my whole life before
Maybe it's a code that I don't know
I hope the next one's plain sailing 'cause this one's on the rocks
And the tide is coming -
- tide is coming
- tide is coming in
She's a skin diver looking for the treasure chest
I'd really like to guide her but she's out of her depth
Will you sail to this island heart?
Will you sail to this island heart?
Set sail
Flicking through the letters on the doormat today
Looks like there's a postcard from abroad
'The weather's fine here, but you know the rest,
'And you didn't pass -
- didn't pass -
- didn't pass the test!'
Palm trees sway gently as a breeze blows from the sea
Now I don't think it's such a bad place to be
A million stars light up the island night
But the sand gets in my eyes sometimes
Will you sail to this island heart?
Will you sail to this island heart?
Will you sail
Will you sail
Will you sail to this island  heart?

I Know That Feeling  

I know that feeling
Just now it crossed my mind
There could be something more to this
Than you've said so far
Though you're careful what you say
It's seems to me a different voice is calling
It's hard to read between the lines
Subtle hint and signs that i'm sure I saw and
If i'm not exactly right at least I know the language you are talking
Give it a name but don't colour it blue
Don't waste time trying to give it a meaning
There's no need to explain cos I think I can tell
I know that feeling, I know that feeling so well
Looking right into your eyes I see something there thats familiar
Something that I won't describe not until I get to know you better
I won't force your hand or make you do anything
That you don't want to but as we've come this far tonight
It would be a shame to go no further

As Above So Below  

Some things are best left behind
Left to fade and not leave a trace
Stop thinking of someone you knew
Forget that face

Let the details just slip from your mind
A story that that no-one can tell
No fingers that point back to you
So what the hell?
It's just out of reach, up in the air
Who knows how the pieces will land
There's a twist in the road, round the next bend
But the wheel's in your hands
The wheel's in your hands
As above, so below
Let your colours fly! Let the good times roll!
Back to the start, to wipe the slate
Cut away that part, forget that face
Cut! To a house on a hill
No-one lives there anymore
The windows are all boarded up
Forget that place

And it's into the centre we rise
All there is is all that you see
Nothing is hidden away
No mystery
It's just out of reach, up in the air
Who knows how the pieces will land
There's a twist in the road, round the next bend
But the wheel's in your hands
The wheel's in your hands
As above, so below
Let your colours fly! Let the good times roll!
Back to the start, to wipe the slate
Cut away that part, forget that face

Shining Hour  

So this is how you tell it now
Just one more event in the past
And it's almost like the memory
Belongs to somebody else

Whatever you say, whatever you do
Don't ever attempt to deny
You were the one, a partner in crime
Excuses are not alibis

This was the place
This was the time
Some things just stay fixed in the mind
I know it's true though you doubt it now
We found the way just for a while
A shining hour

To hear the way you tell it now
I'm surprised by how little remains
And there's no doubt that in a while
The story will change once again

Whatever you say
Whatever you do
Don't ever attempt to deny
You were the one
A partner in crime
Excuses are not alibis

This was the place
This was the time
Some things just stay fixed in the mind
I know it's true
Thought you doubt it now
We found the way just for a while
A shining hour

Scissors And The Stone  





Intelligence  







The Thought That Counts  

It's a gift, it's a prize, it's a good alibi
Such a trip, such a ride, I don't believe you
Like a curse on your lips, like the courage that you sip
It's a slave with a whip, and it will beat you
Chasing shadows, running ragged, going round and round
But when you're down, you're half way home and that's the thought that counts
Oh yeah
It's a kick, it's a find, putting out party lines
Before you can realise, you've been enlisted
Start to talk - nothing comes, shooting blanks, empty guns
What used to be so loud is just a whisper
Chasing shadows, running ragged, going round and round
But when you're down, you're half way home and that's the thought that counts
Oh yeah
The well is running dry, the clock is going slow
The worst is doing time, the best is touch and go.
Oh yeah oh no
Chasing shadows, running ragged, going round and round
But when you're down, you're halfway home and that's the thought that counts
It's a gift, it's a prize, it's a slip, it's a drive
Like a curse on your lips, it's a slave with a whip
Chasing shadows

The Cutting Edge  

Rain on the windscreen makes a rhythm,
Line up the centre leads the way,
The music plays but I don't listen, I don't want to hear the things they say.
Cold and sharper than a knife,
'This is for the best', I said,
But lord help me I'm mystified
It seems I got the cutting edge.
And I'd swear there's nothing in it,
Still the wheels keep turning round.
Like some old persistent spirit,
This one will take some driving out.
Cold and sharper than a knife,
'This is for the best' I said.
Lord help me I'm mystified
It seems I got the cutting edge.
So much for this heart of stone
Now it turns out to be lead.
The strangest thing I've ever known,
It seems I got the cutting edge.

Under The Influence  

There's a deep sea in your eyes
And they haunt me all the time
And there's so many reasons I cannot say
Still the feeling won't fade away. I am
Under the influence and it won't stop
Under the influence I can't seem to shake it off
But there's no room in your life
It's the wrong place and I have no right
And though I try my best to control myself
Have you noticed? I'm not doing very well. I'm still
Under the influence and it won't stop
Under the influence I can't seem to shake it off
There's a deep sea in your eyes
And they haunt me, they haunt me all the time
And there's so many reasons I cannot say
Still the feeling, it won't fade away. I am
Under the influence and it won't stop
Under the influence I can't seem to shake it off Shake it off

Carried Away  

When all the lights are out
And it's hard to sleep
Then I start to dream
Of a place, very far from here
Where there's more to life
Than trying to make ends meet
And like a ship out on the ocean
Sometimes I just wish we could be carried away
Now, as the day winds down
This old wicked town Starts to lose its grip
Somehow, all the pretty lights
Make it look, tonight,
Much better than it is
And like a ship out on the ocean
Sometimes I just wish we could be carried away
And like a ship out on the ocean
Like the waves over the sea
Like the heat when the door is wide open
Sometimes I just wish we could be carried away
Carried away

You'll Never Know  

It will be, just like, a natural thing
Like the breath I am holding
And the way you walk
I can picture you - blissfully unaware
One second just drifting, and the next one caught.
I'd sell my soul to get that moment under my control
But you'll never know.
Across the gap, into your distant life
I am calling, theres a space to fill
And I can't wait for pennies from up above
To line my pockets
Because they never will.
I'd sell my soul to get that moment under my control
But you'll never know.
I know the stars can't help me now
To try and chart a course
To make the right connection
And so, across the great divide
Another hand on mine
I aim in your direction
I'd sell my soul to get that moment under my control
But you'l I never know
I can't wait for pennies from up above

Lost Continent  

Don't say you've seen and heard it all before,
That all of this is nothing new,
And don't try and tell me that I am off course
I'm looking for the same thing as you
The lost continent of love, lost continent of love.
So near but it's so hard to touch, lost continent of love
There's something here that I don't understand
You search for signs like some crusade
When one seems to point towards that promised land
Why do you always turn away.
Lost continent of love, lost continent of love
You're so near but you're so hard to touch, lost continent of love
You say you think you'd better let it go
You don't take chances anymore
If you don't take it you may never know
What it's like to be walking on that shore
Lost continent of love, lost continent of love
You're so near but you're so hard to touch, lost continent of love

Flying Dreams  

The road behind
Ahead the heights
Turn off the engine
And start to climb
Come on, come on up to the top, up where no one can see
Come on, come on, and we'll take off, in flying dreams

In the valley
Down below
Like dying embers
The lights of home
Come on, come on up to the top, upwhere no one cansee
Come on, come on, and we'll take off, in flying dreams

Nothing is above us
High up on this hill
Feel the pull of something
Pray we always will. Yeah.
The road behind,
Ahead the heights
Turn off the engine
And start to climb
Come on, come on up to the top, up where no one can see
Come on, come on, and we'll take off, in flying dreams

Come on come on Come on come on

Pray For Rain  

Too close for me, this kind of killing heat,
The burning looks, before the fun begins
This kind of night leaves tracks across your mind
This kind of day is better left behind

When every word just fans the flames
All you can do is pray for rain
I met my match, but then the fire spread
Out of control, and now there's not much left

Don't you know that no one everwins
So take my hand, but don't say anything
When every word just fans the flames
All you can do is pray for rain
And let it fall
So cool and clear
Still this troubled water
Drive the fever out of here
When every word just fans the flames
When every word just fans the flames
When every word just fans the flames
All you can do is pray for rain

The Glamour

Naked girl on the corner
Waiting for the cars
Standing under a white street light
And she looks at me
Like I come from Mars

This seriousity, hits like a hammer and I'm just trying to be
Forever in love with the Glamour

Had to make her visit
Found I couldn't wait
Three more strokes on the painting
Amand nothing on the tape

This heaviosity, hits like a hammer
And I'm just trying to be
Forever in love with the Glamour

On a side of a mountain
Drinking gin and vermouth
This kind of money is very nice
But er what is it I do?

This seriousity hits like a hammer
And I'm just trying to be
Forever in love with

This heaviosity hits like a hammer
And I'm just trying to be
Forever in love with the Glamour, the Glamour

The Glamour, the Glamour

Web Of Sound  

I'm dumb and blind
I've lost my mind
In a web of sound
In a web of sound

Feeling distant as a superstar
Riding in a fancy motor car
Walk out on the wire sister it's not too far

Caught up in time
Feel like a fly
In a web of sounds
Yeah a web of sounds

And the flame will not do you harm
Just another night another bar
Walk across the fire sister it's not too far

Feeling distant as a superstar
Riding in a fancy motor car
Walk out on the wire sister it's not too far

It's not so far

In a web of sound
In a web of sound
In a web of sound
In a web of sound

SS100X  

And so the silver centered son
Blessed one
Could not avoid November's gun
He is gone

Beyond the universe
To terminal effect
All is as appears
SS100x

The sunlight glints upon the chrome
Suddenly
And he can't wait to get back home
One two three

Wiped out in a blur
To serve and protect
This did not occur
SS100x

(((---
Get a man in that position
Try to find out what happened there
We've lost communication
And there's a bad smell in the air
Seeing something among the shadows
Something hiding behind the grain
Of the memory, making patterns
Watch it happen again and again and again
---)))

A thousand splinters in the breeze
Nothing fits
Take care the company you keep
Four five six

Wiped out in a blur
To serve and protect
This did not occur
SS100x

Beyond the universe
To terminal effect
I shot nobody, sir
SS100x

Sailor  

Imaginary waves
Under a made up sky
There's only time
Forever, forget her

Sailor
Far from the sea
Sailor
Sailor

She is not anywhere
On water land or air
A mirage girl
Forget her, forever

Sailor
Far from the sea
Sailor

Anjelica  

Luminous in starlight
Translated into light
And there's meaning in the way she moves

The radiance of her
The blackness of her hair
I reach out, but my hand passes through
You can't imagine...

I dream, Anjelica
Sometimes, Anjelica
Painted in shadows on a silver wall
This world is stranger than it was before

A secret message waits
In the angles of her face
I don't know the place she takes me to

Over distance and time
She occupies my mind
Can't think of what I wouldn't do
You can't imagine...

My dreams, Anjelica
Sometimes, Anjelica
Painted in shadows on a silver wall
This world is stranger than it was before

She reigns over all she surveys
With a cold, indifferent gaze
And down on the boulevard
I'm searching for her star

Anjelica, Anjelica....

Valley Of The Nile  

I'm drifting back up the river
Much further than a mile
I'm trying not to forgive her
Sometimes I even smile

But I can't stand the distance
Seems like a million years
To the Valley of the Nile
From here

Pyramids up above us
Are pointing at the sky
I find it hard to forget her
No matter how I try

But I can't stand the distance
Seems like a million years
To the Valley of the Nile
From here

But I can't stand the distance
Seems like a million years
From the Valley of the Nile
To here

Driving

Got a line ahead
Got forever to spend
This need to go
Destination unknown

Driving somewhere out of time
No-one and nothing on my mind
Driving

Sodium above
Is burning with love
A deep vault of night
A vast palace of light

Driving somewhere out of time
No-one and nothing on my mind
Driving

So far, so fast
No future, no past
Every mile is the same
I can't remember my name

Driving somewhere out of time
No-one and nothing on my mind
Driving

I'm Falling

I never thought this could happen
I never thought I could feel this way
Until this strange reaction today
You give me a strange sensation
In a place that has no name
Something tells me I'll never feel the same
Now it's all changed
I'm falling, falling
Falling, falling
I'm falling, falling
Falling, falling
I began to slip - I did not know what was coming next
Even so I was not prepared for this
I used to think nothing mattered
Now I see possibilities
You showed a new direction to me
And it's all changed

Red Planet

Point me at the red planet
I want to get my hands on it
Make sure I can take my car
When I go to Mars

Waiting 'round for my wings to heal
Sit in the sand for a thousand days
I'm not scared of this crumbling land
As in my hands it's just a piece of clay

On the first day I'll get some atmosphere
On the second I'll set up the lights
On the third day I'll get some EVA
On the fourth day I will see the sights

Over there I can see palm trees!
Just here - a train station
Some space for a couple of bars
A telescope to look at the stars

On the first day I'll get some atmosphere
On the second I'll set up the lights
On the third day I'll get some EVA
On the fourth day I will see the sights

Point me at the Red Planet
Point me at the Red Planet
Point me at the Red Planet
Point me at the Red Planet
I'm not scared
I'm not scared
I'm not scared of this crumbling land
I'm not scared

You Move Me

Out of the blue like a revelation
Into the light like an inspiration
