Bye Bye

If you've sat and wondered why all these hours
Your head firmly held to the ground
Ooh when the madness gets you down
It's goodbye

A trail of despair leaves a line
To cross once again one more time
Ooh when the madness gets you down
One more time

Ooh when the madness gets you down
It's goodbye

Bye bye ...

Café Europe

Sitting in Café Europe
Waiting for new movements
Watching, hoping
Viewing with discomfort

A gaze of no distinction
Welcomes foreign income
Eating, consuming
Digests the nation's poison

Parading our feelings
Showing our true colours

Waving flags of freedom
Pursuing a new kingdom
Watching, hoping
The threat will leave unopened

Parading our feelings
Showing our true colours
Back to top

Endangered Species I

To start a downward trend
The faceless shapes revenge
Is this a rally high
A uniform no tie

The mood of bloodless hordes
Your nervous twitch gets worse
A smell of gel in hair
The colours on their hair

And all that I can see
The shapes move over me
Were you just tempted from the start
The sound of trouble roars
The wanting more and more
I cannot follow you this way

Identify to me
The raceless hordes I see
A groan of modern yore
A taste that's sweet or sour

Endangered Species I
Dyed trying to tie the tie
Instinct or to destruct
Is this life or is this life?

And all that I can see
The shapes move over me
The sound of trouble roars
The wanting more and more

Endangered Species I ......

The Festival

We're lucky one way, it's a beautiful day
So smile, that's what everyone says
There's holes in the plastic that's covering my head
There's no hope of getting a bed

There's nothing to do but to close our eyes
And take a deep breath and sigh
At the festival
It always rains all day at the festival

We're standing around all covered with mud
The twelfth day of this endless rebuff
I'm waiting to see my favourite band
But I missed them when I was juggling with sand

There's nothing to do but to close our eyes
And take a deep breath and smile
At the festival
It always rains all day at the festival

It always rains all day
You better take your mac
At the festival

The Fire

Dusty road, simple signs
Showing me the way, showing me the way
This long ride wears you down
I can't take no more, I can't take no more

Misty eyes paint the scene
Colour fading fast, too fast to see
I have only had a dream,
The dream is all you need

We can be happy living this way
To dream of a fire that burns in my place
Only when I understand this, I'll sleep through the day
The search for the fire just keeps me awake

My love's much too weak
To carry me away, carry me away
Along this never-ending road
The pain is much too deep

Can we be happy living this way?
To dream of a fire that burns in my place
Only when I understand this, I'll sleep through the day
The search for the fire just keeps me awake

To dream of the fire.
To dream of this fire.

Flashes in the Night

I've never seen a darker shadow
Flying at the sky, my friends are praying

A shameful sight, the wall is broken
Flashes in the night, another shower
Tell me, am I asleep?
You tell me "you're gathering dust"

The light is bright, your eyes are shining
I've never seen a look so lovely
Is this the time, another shower
Leave me, let me sleep

Look the last time skies are shining
Everything is slowly turning red

I feel tired, my body's floating
A breathless power releasing

Hi Tension Wire

Sex will succeed providing you know what you need
Do what you like but work all day and into night
Strike hard and say we don't give up without a fight
I know you'll come running back to me, running back to me

You say that you, you're sure to make the grade
And when my name becomes front page
I know that you'll come running back, you'll come running back to me

You know that I don't care
And when I've got the time to spare
I know that you'll come running back, you'll come running back to me

Primed senses need a taste of pressure to succeed
Hi tension wire it's you that keeps me climbing higher
Don't take too long, you've got to keep the pressure on
I know you'll come running back to me, running back to me

You say that you, you're sure to make the grade ....

Hi tension, wire breaking
Getting closer, getting hotter
Hi tension, wire breaking
You're nearly running back to me, running back to me

You say that you, you're sure to make the grade ....

Hold On

Is it time for the change that was always needed
Do you think there can be any other way
In my mind I would like to see it differently
It's not fair, I don't know, we don't need you
I don't know but I think that I need you
Another change in the look of our future
Another change for our approval

Hold on don't depress I need you by my side

If you knew of the torture that I'm going through
But our time's running out on the other side
Now we have to decide which way we're turning
It's not fair, I don't know, we don't need you
I don't know but I think that I need you
Another change in the look of our future
Another change for our approval

Hold on don't depress I need you by my side

Hold me, touch me, sing me, I need you

Hold on now, don't depress, I need you, I love you by my side
Back to top

I am Calling

I know that love won't last
You've rung the changes
There seems to be no choosing now

If you just look and learn
From others
You'll see the reason of it all

I've seen so many times
Brows that are ruffled
To see the pain in their eyes
To look on the bright side now
Is better than crying
You can be only hurt once

And now I'm singing

Start on something that's new
Blank out all sad affairs

Willing departures on
Unfasten the coupling
Stare into new days to come
Blank out the memories
From the beginning
It's the only way to pull through

And now I'm singing

Start on something that's new
Blank out all sad affairs
Keep your chin in the air
You won't be lonely for long

But all the time
I sit and wonder why
What it's all for
And now I'm singing

I am calling ....

Iron Curtain Irony


Back to top

Is it a Dream?

The time it was a quarter to twelve
And I thought I'd had a heart attack
My face is cold and covered with sweat
And the skin is pulling off my back
I'm having sleepless nights
With these things running through my mind
I know I should have stayed at home

Is it a dream that I saw
Or was it a ghost walking through the door
Is this the last time I'll ever be seen
In one piece?

The nights are full of howling screams
And the window panes are full of cracks
The ceiling's getting closer to me
And there's creatures biting at my neck
It was a sleepless night
With these things running through my mind
I know I should have stayed at home

Was it a scream that I heard
Or was it the wind blowing down the stair
Is this the last time I'll ever be seen
In one piece?

King of Comedy

All the lights they shine at me
It's just what I've always wanted
The thrill of being here with you
It's just what I've always wanted

All the people smiling, laughing
The love I have for everyone
All I see is darkness, blackness
The dazzle seems to blind me

I know you're out there so believing
A one-off speciality
Instant fame of glory stories
The man who stole celebrities

All the lights they shine at me
It's just what I've always wanted
The thrill of being America's dream
It's just what I've always wanted

All the people smiling, laughing
The love I have for everyone
Instant fame of glory stories
The man who's King of Comedy

All I did was just for you
And all I want is nothing new
You make me happy just to see
A new life opening up for me
And all I want is need to love
And all I need is everyone

The Love Brigade

Here we are in need of material grace
A chilling sense to ask you, is it really necessary?
The nagging charm extends to grip us to this place
Reluctantly we turn to watch the new horizons form
And in the distance view what we've been waiting for

Here comes the love brigade
And we're telling you that there can be no other way
Here comes the love brigade
We're telling you, we're coming here to stay, we're coming here to ....

Will they really be what we're looking for
(Call the love brigade)
Hanging high our heads revolve to greet the new regime
Lessons learnt it must be said that we've been stung before
(It's the love brigade)
Forgive our cautious minds when love brigades can sometimes blind you
Seeing fly the flags in colours burst to shine

Here comes the love brigade ....

I stand here in line, I wait to see my fate
I know the much maligned look casting on my face
I don't understand, that's the way I am
The pessimist surrounded by a crowd of optimists
Waiting for the age of the love brigade

The age of the love brigade

Lucille

Lucille, you're not laughing today
Why not, no way
Lucille, you're not showing your face
See you, everyday

I'm laughing at you, you're not laughing at me
A change in your face, no change in

Lucille, you're programmed to smile
Your show, on show
Behind, your eyes seem to cry
No fun, anymore

I'm laughing at you, you're not laughing at me
A change in your face, no change in mine

Lucille, you're gone from us now
Like Phil, memories
Lucille, you're not showing your face
Too old, nowadays

I'm laughing at you ....

Lucille, you're not laughing today
Lucille, you're not showing your face
Lucille, you're gone from us now

The Saddest Part

A drowning sea makes no waves to send you homeward
We'll never breathe as one again
You missed the train of my thoughts, whistling softly by
You didn't stand, you couldn't fight
And the saddest part

My lifeless heart feels no pain, while yours is dying
And do you know, I feel so ashamed
You played your part and lost the game, it's no use crying
There's no reason and no blame
And the saddest part

We'll never be the same again, a tragic end with no pain
What did we learn, what did we gain?
I closed my door against your heart, locked out forever
I couldn't see the saddest part
And the saddest part

The saddest part of all this
The saddest part is only, only
The saddest part is only love
The saddest heart is lonely, lonely
Back to top

Summer Spies

Summer spies in my room
Distant eyes look over you

Ssh, secrets

Long days our movements seen
Devoured, a shadow turns to blue

Ssh, secrets

Watch your step, who you entertain
It might be that Summer spy

You've got no secrets ....
Back to top

Testify

Sign the joke of broken hope
You're in my hands, no escape
Make a run, I grab your throat
No escape for you

It's nice down here, so hot and dry
No central heating in the sky
The worst is done on your behalf
Escape no escape no

Testify to certify
You're heaven sent to me
Don't be shy or ask me why
There's no escape for you

A wanton flick of your wrist
Makes less pay for the rich
But when the pay sticks to your wrist
You make a fast retreat

Not from here my welcome friend
We're coming now to your birth
An end of day, a constant night
You're hell sent, hell sent

You've got cold feet
Not down here!
I see you dropping,
dropping
dropping
dropping
No staircase to walk on

This Strange Attraction

I hear you calling, it's going to be a mystery
I fell in love just like falling from a tree
There's these strange feelings that are crawling through my hair
Will I ever find you

These things are all I have to bear
(It's just a mystery to you)
A lighted candle in thin air
(It's just a mystery come true)
This strange attraction tells me I think I'll always love you
Just tell me where to find you
If I could build a statue to place in memory of you

That tempered laughter that's now captured in the air
My glancing look that slowly turns into a stare
I can't believe this, am I crazy like you said
Talking to a jam jar, telling me

These things are all I have to bear ....

Build a statue in memory for you to
Dream in crystals that sparkle light to

Build a statue of you

The Whole World Over

Sometimes life's so hard
To jump over small pitfalls
The well appears too deep
To pick coins out one by one

I know we'll pull the whole world over
It's just taking time finding the right formula
It seems to take all our patience
But we've got the right, got the right intention

Our faith is not our weakness
To stand side by side in love

I know we'll pull the whole world over ....

The whole world over
Side by side in love

You Know (You'll Never Believe)

A flash of action on the horror scene
I wish them well if they believe
A fallen pop star acts another scene
It may be your last video dream

And so we turn to watch your face
You know you'll never believe
The image looking down from space

So loud the music pumping through the air
A flash of light points at you there in the crowd
A strange reaction pulls you to your feet
The Earth applauds a new star for us all to meet

And so we turn to watch your face
Success a flavour to your taste
The screaming crying out for more
A rush of bodies at your door

And so we turn to watch your face
The image looking down from space
The hands are coming out through the wall
Repulse your thoughts for evermore

As the sun goes down on this old town
You wake for good
