Duran Duran

Страна: Великобритания
Год образования: 1978

Состав:
Simon Le Bon (Саймон Ле Бон) - вокал
Andy Taylor (Энди Тейлор) - гитара
John Taylor (Джон Тейлор) - бас
Nick Rhodes (Ник Родс) - клавишные
Roger Taylor (Роджер Тейлор) - ударные

Cвое название британцы Duran Duran позаимствовали из культового научно-фантастического фильма 60-х "Barbarella" режиссера Роже Вадима с Джейн Фондой в главной роли - был там такой злобный персонаж доктор Дюран. Несмотря на "говорящее" название, ничего особо страшного ни в имидже, ни в музыке группы не было - красивая поп-музыка, исполняемая словно сошедшими с обложки журналов мод музыкантами. Международный успех пришел к ним в начале 80-х: романтичные мелодии, насыщенный синт-поп, яркий имидж и шикарные видеоклипы сделали свое дело. Первое поколение MTV выросло именно на их живописных видеосюжетах.

Классический состав Duran Duran включал пятерых участников: вокалиста Саймона Ле Бона (Simon Le Bon; родился 27 октября 1958 в Хэртфордшире), клавишника Ника Родса (Nick Rhodes; родился 8 июня 1962 в Бирмингеме, настоящее имя Nicholas James Bates), гитариста Энди Тейлора (Andy Taylor; родился 16 февраля 1961 в Уолверхэмптоне), басиста Джона Тейлора (John Taylor; родился 20 июня 1960-го года в Бирмингеме, настоящее имя Nigel John Taylor) и барабанщика Роджера Тейлора (Roger Taylor; родился 26 апреля 1960 в Бирмингеме).

Но в 1978 году, которым датируются первые сведения о Duran Duran, игравшая в Бирмингеме группа имела несколько иной вид. Идея собрать команду принадлежала Нику Родсу и Джону Тейлору. За первые два года, своего рода начальную школу для музыкантов, через группу прошли: Саймон Колли (Simon Colley; бас, кларнет), Стивен Даффи (Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy; вокал), Энди Викетт (Andy Wickett; вокал), Алан Кертис (Alan Curtis; гитара), Джефф Томпсон (Jeff Thompson). Получив резидентство в бирмингемском клубе "Rum Runner", музыканты нашли в лице хозяев клуба Майкла и Пола Берроу своих первых менеджеров. Мало-помалу зарабатывая репутацию крепкой живой команды, в 1980 году Duran Duran отправились на гастроли с Хэзел О'Коннор (Hazel O'Connor). Это не только принесло им некоторую известность в Великобритании, но и контракт с EMI Records.

К этому времени штатное расписание группы зафиксировало двух новых участников, однофамильцев Энди и Джона Тейлоров, гитариста и басиста. От первоначальных попыток играть пост-панк не осталось и следа. Музыканты берут на вооружение мелодичный и красивый стиль нью-романтик и делают это весьма успешно.

В 81-м году Duran Duran опубликовали дебютный сингл "Planet Earth", покоривший британский Тор 20 (12 позиция). Второй сингл "Careless Memories" поднялся только в Тор 40, но для никому не известной группы и это было неплохим результатом. Поддержанный экстравагантным видео с полуобнаженными моделями, следующий сингл "Girls on Film" стал первым хитом, поднявшимся до 5 строки рейтинга. Новорожденное MTV только-только начинает набирать силу, а менеджмент группы уже берет на заметку роль броского видеоряда в успехе новых песен на музыкальном рынке. Клипы Duran Duran и впредь будут отличаться элегантностью и оригинальной картинкой.

Дебютному альбому "Duran Duran" (1981) повезло с синглами. Благодаря нескольким ударным композициям диск со временем попал в Тор 3 и продержался в английских чартах 118 недель. Испытать свое обаяние уже на американской публике группа смогла во время своего первого клубного тура по США, включавшего выступления в знаменитых заведениях - "Roxy" в Лос-Анджелесе и "Ritz" в Нью-Йорке.

Со вторым альбомом "Rio" группа решила долго не тянуть и издала его уже в следующем году. Становилось понятно, что отличные хиты "Hungry Like the Wolf", "Save a Prayer", "Rio" могли принадлежать только очень сильному композиторскому таланту. Зрелищные клипы для первых двух песен снимались в экзотической Шри-Ланке, а песню "Rio" экранизировали в Антигуа. Видео "Hungry Like the Wolf", с восторгом принятое зрителями MTV, вошло в число 15 клипов с наиболее активной ротацией на канале. Покорив Европу, альбом "Rio" добрался до Штатов, где без проблем стал платиновым.

К 1983 году Duran Duran завладели музыкальным Олимпом - три их хита одновременно оккупировали американский Тор 10. Известный всему миру хит-сингл "Is There Something I Should Know?" дебютировал на первой строке британского рейтинга и стал номером 4 в чарте Billboard. Популярность Duran Duran не знала границ. Принцесса Диана назвала их своей самой любимой группой (а в 83-м по ее приглашению они выступили в театре Dominion в присутствии членов королевской фамилии). Такого накала страстей на живых концертах Великобритания не видела, пожалуй, со времен Beatles.

В 1983 году был опубликован третий лонг-плей "Seven and the Ragged Tiger", ставший лидером английского чарта. Впечатляющая подборка международных хитов, возглавлявших чарты многих стран мира, включала треки "Union of the Snake", "New Moon on Monday", "The Reflex" (первый номер один группы в США), "The Wild Boys", "A View to a Kill". Последняя тема, попавшая в звуковую дорожку фильма о Джеймсе Бонде, стала еще одним номером один в Америке. Закрепить официальное признание помогли две премии Grammy 1983 года. Победу в номинации "лучшее музыкальное видео, короткая форма" принесли группе клипы "Girls on Film"/"Hungry Like the Wolf". В номинации "лучшее музыкальное видео, большая форма" победил видеоролик "Duran Duran". Осталось покорить Соединенные Штаты в сценическом варианте.

В большом гастрольном туре Duran Duran впервые использовали видеокамеры прямой трансляции и проекционные экраны во время шоу. Истерия вполне битловского накала, сопровождавшая это турне, сохранена для потомков в документальном фильме "Sing Blue Silver". По материалам лучших шоу был подготовлен концертный альбом "Arena" (1984). Пятерка музыкантов появляется на обложке журнала "Rolling Stone", где их называют Fab Five - по аналогии с Fab Four, как титуловали Beatles.

Кульминация в любом деле чревата самыми неожиданными последствиями. Так и английские романтики, вкусив невероятного успеха, на самом пике карьеры решили немного отдохнуть друг от друга. Благотворительное шоу "Live Aid" на стадионе JFK в Филадельфии стало последним выступлением Duran Duran в классическом составе. Пятеро участников увлекаются параллельными проектами. Среди самых известных можно назвать Power Station (Джон, Энди, роберт Палмер и Тони Томпсон) и Arcadia (Саймон, Ник и Роджер). Кроме того, музыканты устраивали свою личную жизнь, Ник подготовил книгу фотографий, обработанных на компьютере, Энди начал работу над сольным альбомом (вместе со Стивом Джонсом из Sex Pistols). Пока остальные участники реализовывали свои таланты на стороне, вокалист Саймон ЛеБон заставил вздрогнуть не одно сердце, когда в 1986 году едва не погиб во время крушения своей яхты.

Когда ЛеБон восстановил рабочую форму, музыканты принимают решение объединиться. Правда, записывать пятый альбом "Notorious" им приходится без Роджера и Энди Тейлоров. Продюсером записи становится Найл Роджерс (Nile Rodgers, гитарист группы Chic). Заглавный трек оказался достаточно популярным, но чувствовалось, что музыканты подрастеряли былой кураж и чего-то главного им уже не хватает. Еще два сингла, "Skin Trade" и "Meet El Presidente", не поднялись даже в первую двадцатку хитов. Альбом, поддержанный массированным концертным туром в 1987 году, в первую десятку попал, но большого коммерческого успеха не имел.

Оставшись втроем, ЛеБон, Родс и Джон Тейлор продолжали записывать новые песни, хотя и сами понимали, что лучшие времена Duran Duran остались позади. Даже компиляция лучших синглов не имела ожидаемого коммерческого эффекта. Дальнейшее существование группы оказалось под большим вопросом, но уже в июне 1989 года, приняв в свои ряды пополнение - гитариста Уоррена Кукурулло (Warren Cuccurullo), игравшего в группе Фрэнка Заппы и в Missing Persons, и Стерлинга Кэмпбелла (Sterling Campbell), Duran Duran снова ринулись на покорение мира. Забегая вперед, скажем, что Кэмпбелл провел в команде всего два года, приняв участие в создании лонг-плея "Liberty" (1990); позднее он играл с Синди Лопер (Cyndi Lauper), Дэвидом Боуи (David Bowie) и другими музыкантами. Но ни лонг-плей 1988 года "Big Thing", ни "Liberty" 1990-го года не получили былой популярности. Дюраномания явно шла на убыль. Правда, это не мешало успеху отдельных песен и клипов по обе стороны Атлантики. Сингл "I Don't Want Your Love" входит в Тор 5 многих стран мира, а видео "All She Wants Is", сделанное авангардным фотографом Дином Чемберленом (Dean Chamberlain), получает награду MTV за новаторство.

Интерес к Duran Duran с новой силой вспыхнул в 1993 году, с выпуском сингла "Ordinary World". Громкий международный хит поднялся в Тор 3 Америки и стал #6 в Великобритании. Песня выиграла "Ivor Novello Award", которую вручают лучшим с точки зрения композиции произведениям. Следующий сингл "Come Undone" добрался до 7 строки чарта Billboard. Оба трека были включены в достаточно сильный альбом "The Wedding Album" (1993). Критики, которые уже поспешили списать группу со счетов, вынуждены были забрать свои слова обратно. Британская пятерка отправилась в долгожданное мировое турне, в рамках которого побывала (одной из первых) в Южной Африке. Во время тура музыкантам пришлось поволноваться, когда у вокалиста неожиданно начались проблемы со связками. В перерывах между гастролями, несколько раз продлевавшимися, они заезжают в Лос-Анджелес, где на Аллее славы Голливуда появляется звезда Duran Duran.

В 1995 году музыканты подготовили диск "Thank You", объединивший кавер-версии исполнителей, которые оказали на Duran Duran наиболее сильное влияние. Работа была принята неоднозначно. Партия пуристов взбунтовалась. Особо резкой критике подверглись достаточно вольные версии рэп-классики "White Lines (Don't Do It)" и "911 Is а Joke", "Perfect Day" Лу Рида (Lou Reed). А между тем, сами исполнители, подвергшиеся переработке, были довольны. Работу Duran Duran хвалили и сам Лу Рид, и Led Zeppelin, и Игги Поп, и Боб Дилан.

В 1996 году Саймон ЛеБон согласился на достаточно необычный для себя шаг. В рамках благотворительного шоу в помощь детям, пострадавшим от военных действий в Боснии, он вместе с Лучано Паваротти (Luciano Pavarotti) исполнил песню "Ordinary World", а в паре с вокалисткой The Cranberries Долорес О'Риордан (Dolores O'Riordan) спел хит группы своей коллеги "Linger".

В 1997 году бас-гитарист Джон Тейлор, после почти 20 лет, проведенных вместе, оставил ЛеБона и Родса. Записанный в том же году втроем (вместе с верным Уорреном Кукурулло) диск "Medazzaland" лейбл EMI отказался издавать в Великобритании, да и в Европе. Отношения с рекординговой компанией подошли к естественному финалу. Между тем, Duran Duran сделали еще один новаторский шаг: они стали первой в истории группой, давшей возможность своим фанам загружать через интернет песню "Electric Barbarella" (прямо из знаменитой лондонской студии Abbey Road). "Medazzaland", вопреки опасениям лейбла, был высоко оценен прессой, хотя не стал (по вине EMI) коммерческой удачей. На волне возобновившегося интереса к музыке 80-х EMI издает альбом ремиксов "Essentials" и компиляцию лучших песен "The Greatest Hits".

В 2000 году на лейбле Hollywood вышел студийный альбом группы "Pop Trash". В этой работе Родс и ЛеБон попытались избежать тех стандартных поп-ходов, которые в сознании массового слушателя намертво закрепились за группой. Летом 2000 года ЛеБон, Родс и Кукурулло вместе с приглашенными музыкантами объехали многочисленные европейские фестивали, а затем отправились на встречу с американскими поклонниками. Когда под Рождество они вернулись с концертами в Великобританию, их поклонников ждал большой сюрприз. Используя новейшие цифровые технологии, вместе с компьютерными художниками музыканты разработали визуальные спецэффекты, которые позволили проецировать анимационных героев прямо на сцену во время выступления группы.

В 2001 году достаточно многочисленная армия верных поклонников с радостью встретила новость о том, что пять участников "классического" состава снова соберутся вместе впервые с 1984 года, когда был издан концертный диск "Arena". Саймон ЛеБон, Ник Родс, Роджер Тейлор, Энди Тейлор и Джон Тейлор загорелись идеей тряхнуть стариной и подготовить альбом нового материала. "Каждый раз, когда мы оказываемся в студии, - говорил Родс, - происходит какая-то химическая реакция, рождается особая музыкальная энергия. Мы с восторгом думаем о том, что сумеем создать все вместе". Выпущенные в 2004 и 2007 годах альбомы Astronaut и Red Carpet Massacre показали, что знаменитая британская пятерка все еще способна на очень и очень многое.

Тексты песен альбома Duran Duran (1981)


Girls On Film

See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
Then walk right out to the fourline track
There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

Girls on film, girls on film, girls on film, girls on film

Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
The diving man's coming up for air cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
Girls on film (got your picture), girls on film

Wider baby smiling you just made a million
Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
Take one last glimpse into the night I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

Girls on film (she's more than a lady), girls on film
Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
Girls on film (see you together), girls on film
Girls on film (see you later), girls on film
Girls on film (what ya doing), girls on film


Planet Earth

Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
I heard you making patterns rhyme
Like some new romantic looking for the tv sound
You'll see I'm right some other time

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

My head is stuck on something precious
Let me know if you're coming down to land
Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
Is is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth

Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This is planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This calling planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This is planet earth


Is There Anyone Out There?

I never found out what made you leave
Another day's over just an hour to go
Well I tried to phone last night but you never answered
Just left me ringing on the line

Outside is there anyone out there anyone else outside
Woah outside love is there anyone out there anyone else outside

My face in the mirror shows a break in time
A crack in the ocean, it does not align
I tried to sleep last night, but I've caught ya dreaming
About days we used to wonder away

Outside is there anyone out there anyone else outside
Woah outside love is there anyone out there anyone else outside

Look out of the window maybe you can call by my name
Another night over babe another light comes on in vain
Well I tried to phone last night but you never answered
You just left me ringing in the air

Is there anyone out there (anyone out there) oh, oh
Anyone out there (anyone out there) oh, oh
Anyone out there (anyone out there) oh, oh
Anyone out there (anyone out there) oh, oh
Anyone out there (anyone out there)


Careless Memories

So soon,
Just after you've gone
My senses sharpen
But it always takes
So damned long
Before I feel how much
My eyes have darkened

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper...
With a careless memory

On the table
Signs of love life scattered...
And the walls break
We go crashing within
It's not as though--
As though you really mattered
But being close,
How could I let you go
Without some feeling
Some precious sympathy following

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper...
With a careless memory

I walk out into the sun
I try to find a new day
But the whole place
It just screams in my eyes
Where are you now?
Cuz I don't want to meet you
I think I'd die--
I think I'd laugh at you--
I think I'd cry--
What am I supposed to do,
Follow you?

Outside the thoughts
Come flooding back now...
I just try to forget you...
So easy to disturb
With a thought...
With a whisper...
With a careless memory...


Is There Something I Should Know

Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now

I made a break I run out yesterday
Tried to find my mountain hideaway
Maybe next year maybe no go
I know you're watching me every minute of the day yeah
I've seen the signs and the looks and the pictures
They give your game away yeah
There's a dream that strings the road
With broken glass for us to hold
And I cut so far before I had to stay

Please please tell me now i
Is there something i should know
Is there something I should say
That would make you come my way
Do you feel the same 'cos you don't let it show

People stare and cross the road from me
And jungle drums they all clear the way for me
Can you read my mind can you see in the snow
And fiery demons all dance
When you walk through that door
Don't say you're easy on me
You're about as easy as a nuclear war
Cos the dream that strings the road
With broken glass for us to hold
And I got so far before I had to say

Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Is there something I should say
That would make you come my way
Do you feel the same 'cos you don't let it show

Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Please please tell me now
Can you see what makes me blow
Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Is there something i should say
That would make you come my way


Night Boat

Standing on the edge of a quay no lights flashing on the water for me
Fog in my mind darkens my eyes silently streaming for a distant sound
Ripple river yellows rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
Stillness overcomes me in the night listen to the rising water moan

I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat woo I'm waiting
Waiting for the night boat

Shadows all through me shudder away echo me echo me (echo me)
Am I alone or is the river alive cause it echos me, echos me, echos me

I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat woo I'm waiting
Waiting for the night boat

Waiting (waiting) waiting for the night boat woo I'm waiting (waiting)
Waiting for the night boat waiting for the night boat woo I'm waiting
Waiting for the night boat I'm wating for the night boat


Sound Of Thunder

I've been in this grass here for the last ten hours
My clothes are dirty but my mouth isn't dry
How does it happen does it fly through the air
Woah I gave up asking days away I gave up asking days away

And now I'm lying here waiting for the sound of thunder
Waiting for the sound of thunder

Here I am I'm a dotted line cut in through corners stick me through your door
I'm the man who stepped off the path
Am I just lying here that's what I was made for

And now my eyes are closing but I still feel the land
Leaning out for the touch of my hand
The world spins so fast that I might fly off
The world spins so fast that I might fly off
The world spins so fast that I might fly off

Waiting for the sound of thunder
I'm waiting for the sound of thunder


Friends Of Mine

Friends of mine they said they were friends of mine
Said they were passing time more like a waste of time
Close the door I said close the door I've told you twice before what are you waiting for

Georgie Davis is coming out no more heros we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not taking anymore
Rocky picture has lost his gun leave him out now he's having fun
Oh not not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not waiting anymore hey hey

Silly lies don't have to advertise when will you realize I'm sick of your alibis
Running cold the water's running cold it's time that you were told
I think you're growing old

Georgie Davis is coming out no more heros we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky picture has lost his gun leave him out now he's having fun
Oh not not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not taking anymore hey hey

I see you smile pictures on the wall there all friends of mine
See you standing round the back friends of mine think youself lucky
Friends of mine they said they were friends of mine
They were just wasting time out on the dotted line
Money's gone I've known it all along why don't you say i'm wrong
Why don't they drop the bomb
Cause Georgie Davis is coming out no more heros we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky picture has thrown away his gun leave him out now he's having fun
Oh not not me I'm not too late and I know that I'm not taking anymore
What you doing friends of mine holding back you're no friend of mine

Тексты песен альбома Rio (1982)


Rio

Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise
Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice
With a step to your left and a flick to the right you catch that mirror way out west
You know you're something special and you look like you're the best

Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
Two of a billion stars it means so much to me
Like a birthday or a pretty view
But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you

Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

Hey now woo look at that did she nearly run you down
At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive
You make me feel alive, alive alive
I'll take my chance cause luck is on my side or something
I know what you're thinking I tell you something I know what you're thinking

Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twists across a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grand
Her name is Rio she don't need to understand
And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do


My Own Way

I saw you at the airace yesterday April showers get out of my way
Fear of flying no not me
I'm never bothered what you say someone's kid just lives for today
It ain't your problem anyway

Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way

Number one public figure what a pain just puts another rattle in your brain
Take another green but it's not the same
So now you're on the sandlane everyday dancing with the bulls in any old way
Running like a fox to keep up with me

Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way

I'm on 45 between 6th and Broadway, 45 between 6th and Broadway 45
I'm drinking 7UP between 6th and Broadway 7UP between 6th and Broadway, 7UP

Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way


Lonely In Your Nightmare

Even on the darkest night when empty promise means empty hand
And soldiers coming home like shadows turning red
And when the lights of hope are fading quickly then look to me
I'll be your homing angel I'll be in your head

Because you're lonely in your nightmare let me in
And there's heat beneath your winter let me in

I see the delta traces living lonely out on the limb
And a passing glimmer warm beneath your skin
Please tread gently on the ground when all around you earth turns to fire
Only get a second chance when danger's on the wind

Because you're lonely in your nightmare let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter let me in

Must be lucky whether when you find the kind of wind that you need
Come on show me all the light and shade that made your name
I know you've got it in your head I've seen that look before
You've built your refuge turns you captive all the same

Because your lonely in your nightmare let me in
And it's barren in your garden let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter let me in
Because you're so lonely in your nightmare let me in
And it's cold out on the stone range let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter let me in


Hungry Like The Wolf

Darken the city, night is a wire
Steam in the subway, earth is a afire
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
Woman, you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine, I'm after you
Mouth is alive, all running inside
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
I smell like I sound, I'm lost and I'm found
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf


Hold Back The Rain

Hold back the rain
Yes we're miles away from nowhere and the wind doesn't have a name
So call it what you want to call it still blows down the lane
People tell me I haven't changed at all but I don't feel the same
And I've bet you've had that feeling too you can't laugh all the time

And if the fires burn out there's only fire to blame (hold back the rain)
No time for worry cause we're on the roam again (hold back the rain)
The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane (hold back the rain)
Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

So what if the words ain't rhyming did you thing that it's just a game
I probably didn't even say that right and i really don't give a damn
Okay go off and wander I'm guilty just the same
Sometimes you're needed badly so please come back again
And if the fires burn out there's only fire to blame (hold back the rain)
No time for worry cause we're on the roam again (hold back the rain)
The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane (hold back the rain)
Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

And if the stars burn out there's only fire to blame (hold back the rain)
No time for worry cause we're on the roam again (hold back the rain)
The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane (hold back the rain)
Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain
Hold back the rain, hold back the rain. hold back the rain
Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain
(Hold back the rain), hold back the rain (hold back the rain)
Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain


New Religion

I've been now sauntering
Out and down the path sometime
Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I knew
Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs in things
Telling me not there, man, it's no go
Don't go there boy

I need a reason
I can't think without one now
Too much learning got to show
Call it treason
Maybe catch her, don't know how
Too many things, too much to know

Bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
Lady screaming, lady leave me out
'Cause sometimes people stare
Coming down, electric chair
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

Don't know why this evil bothers me
Take another chance boy, carry the fight,
You can take him if you're fast
So why is he trying to follow me?
Didn't I say if you're holding on
You'd be laughing at the last
How many reasons do they need?
I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice
I might just believe this time
You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
And it's us who makes the noise

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself,
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself,
It's a new religion

Okay, my reasoning might be clouded by the sun
But someone sees the departmental lie
You know this peacetime jabbing fist in stabbing knife
Only get one look before you die

Don't know why this evil bothers me
Take another chance boy, carry the fight,
You can take him if you're fast
So why is he trying to follow me?
Didn't I say if you're holding on
You'd be laughing at the last
How many reasons do they need?
I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice
I might just believe this time
You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
And it's us who makes the noise

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself,
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself,
It's a new religion

Gotta take pay the saints 'n sinners
In regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things
Walking in formation down the lane,
They carry their cross, make a church bell ring
Army majors pull a mean cool truth,
There lying in a swimming pool
Searching for the undeniable truth that
A man is just a fool

Don't know why this evil bothers me
Take another chance boy, carry the fight,
You can take him if you're fast
So why is he trying to follow me?
Didn't I say if you're holding on
You'd be laughing at the last
How many reasons do they need?
I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice
I might just believe this time
You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
And it's us who makes the noise

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself,
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself,
It's a new religion


Last Chance On The Stairway

I don't remember quite how I met you wasn't long ago
I just get a picture of sun in your eyes the waves in your hair
Maybe it's something said in a movie or you could've said last night
It just took me out on a limb and I don't really know what I'm doing here

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beats so in time can you look at me
I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right I've had my last chance on the stairway

Funny it's just like a scene out of Voltaire twisting out of sight
Cause when all the curtains are pulled back we'll turn and see the circles we've traced
Ain't no game (ooo-ooo) when you're playing with fire
It doesn't seem right that we fight so the party runs all night

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beats so in time can you look at me
I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right I'm so nervous to say tell me can't you see
And if you want I'll fall off forever I can't say no more baby dance with me
And please don't say leave it till later I've had my last chance on the stairway

Wonder why (wonder why ooo-ooo) what makes me rise so high
Maybe it's something they put in your perfume or the look in your eyes
It could be the atmosphere sinking ooo I don't even know what you're thinking
I don't even know what you're drinking but it keeps this heaven alive

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beats so in time can you look at me
I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right I'm so nervous to say tell me can't you see
And if you want I'll fall off forever I can't say no more baby dance with me
And please don't say leave it till later I've had my last chance on the stairway
Last chance on the stairway, last chance on the stairway
Last chance on the stairway, last chance on the stairway
Last chance on the stairway, last chance on the stairway
Last chance on the stairway


Save A Prayer

You saw me standing by the wall,
Corner of a main street
And the lights are flashing on your window sill
All alone ain't much fun,
So you're looking for the thrill
And you know just what it takes and where to go

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after

Feel the breeze deep on the inside,
Look you down into your well
If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire
Take a chance
(Like all dreamers can't find another way)
You don't have to dream it all, just live a day

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after,
Save it till the morning after

Pretty looking road,
Try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise,
Melt the ice
And you wanted to dance so I asked you to dance
But fear is in your soul
Some people call it a one night stand
But we can call it paradise

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after

Save a prayer 'til the morning after


The Chauffeur

Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
All looking for a new place to drive
You sit beside me, so newly charming
Sweating dew drops glisten, freshing your side

The sun slips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
Sing Blue Silver

Way down the lane away, living for another day
The aphids swarm up in the drifting haze
Swim seagull in the sky
Towards that hollow western isle
My envied lady holds you fast in her gaze

And watching lovers part, I feel you smiling
What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind
To tear out from your eyes
With a word to stiffen brooding lies
But I'll only watch you leave me further behind

Тексты песен альбома Seven And The Ragged Tiger (1983)


The Reflex

"You've gone too far this time"
But I'm dancing on the valentine
I tell you somebody's fooling around
With my chances on the dangerline
I'll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day to make my stand
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand

So why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time don't lose it
The reflex is an only child he's waiting in the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

I'm on a ride and I want to get off
But they won't slow down the roundabout
I sold the Renoir and the TV set
Don't want to be around when this gets out

Oh the reflex what a game he's hiding all the cards
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre
Evey little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark


New Moon On Monday

Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
With your dance on the eventide
You got me coming up with answers
All of which I deny
I said it again
Could I please rephrase it
Maybe I can catch a ride
I couldn't really put it much plainer
But I'll wait till you decide
Send me your warning siren
As if I could ever hide
Last time La Luna

I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

Breaking away with the best of both worlds
A smile that you can't disguise
Every minute I keep finding
Clues that you leave behind
Save me from these reminders
As if I'd forget tonight
This time La Luna


Cracks In The Pavement

I shed my skin
When the party was about to begin
I'm light years away but I'm walking back tonight
Of all nights
When I should be feeling just right
Don't want to be in public
My head is full of chopstick
I don't like it

Something on my mind
Breaking open doors I had sealed up before
Something on my mind
Makes me run when I thought I'd run too far

Somebody shaking my tree
Maybe that somebody is me
I'm standing in the light but
I'm making a break for the shadows
On the cinema wall
They should be mine but I'm not that tall
Now I'm saying this in privaate
If I had a car I'd drive it
Insane

I'm looking for cracks in the pavement


I Take The Dice

Midnight I think I'm gonna make it
Feel the magical lash of the roll
and the crash in their lives
Headline in tomorrow's papers
Kill that light it's so bright
And you're shining it right in my eyes

Show me your secret and tell me your name
Catch me with your fizzy smile
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognise
Don't ask me now
When I need you I don't know how
To believe in your advice
Just this once I take the dice

Midnight so what's the point of faking
For a kiss or a whisper
you pull out a desperate prize
Hold tight onto Daddy's bracelet
Make them pay for their chances
With money they don't think that's nice


Of Crime And Passion

Why did you let me run
When you knew I'd fall for the gaping hole
Where your heart should be
Liar-couldn't cut me deeper with a knife if you tried
Just take a look (before you run off and hide)
At your victim
arise

Clouds on you shoulder
Aren't they grazed by the afterglow
How quiet they gather
When the storm is about to blow

No don't look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain't no wind of change
I'm talking of crime and passion's rage

Summer of madness or the undertow
Dragged me up an alley for the blossoming fire
On a stranger's smile
Bride of wire-how disguise so easily cracked
Saw your heart turn spade
This orchid's turned to black

Graze on your shoulder
Like the clouds in the afterglow
How quiet they gather
When the storm is about to blow

Way down by the shoulder
In the haze of the afterglow
Stranded together
And the storm is about to blow


Union Of The Snake

Telegram force and ready
I knew this was a big mistake
There'sa fine line drawing
My senses together
And I think it's about to break

If I listen close I can hear them singers
Voices in your body coming through on the radio
The Union of the Snake is on the climb
Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
Through the borderline

Nightshades on a warning
Give me strength at least give me a light
Give me anything even sympathy
There's a chance you could be right

The Union of the Snake is on the climb
It's gonna race it's gonna break
Gonna move up to the borderline


Shadows On Your Side

Shackled and raised for a shining crowd
They want you to speak but the music is louder than
All of their roar with the heat of the planet's core-but

The shadows are on your side
As soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find
You belong to the hands of the night

Promises made with a distant friend
Truth should be known it can only bend
To a tune of its own
Hey you'll never hear that voice again
Scandal in white on a tangled vine
With everybody to say that you're having the
Time of your life when your life is on the slide-but

Spinning a compass to choose your way
You can run you can dive you can stand and you can soar
Whichever way you can be sure-that

Shadows on your side
The shadows are on your side


The Seventh Stranger

Those words are all remainders
Echoes growing in the heart of twilight
They lay back laughing at naivety's star
Awaken all those whispers in the dusty shadow of a
Passing favour
I wouldn't say that you were ruthless or right
I couldn't see from so far
Was I chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure you never answered when I called
And I wiped away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger
For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of a stranger

Can't tell the real from reflections
When all these faces look the same to me
In every city such a desolate dream
Some days are strange to number
Some say the seventh sounds a little bit stranger
A year of Sundays seems to have drifted right by
(I could have sworn) in one evening
And I'm not seized in desperation
No steel reproaches on the table from before
But I still can feel those splinters of ice
I look through the eyes of a stranger
For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of a stranger

I must be chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure you never answer when I call
And I wipe away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger
For rumour in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
Walking away like a stranger
From rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of a stranger

Тексты песен альбома Arena (1984)


Is There Something I Should Know

Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now

I made a break I run out yesterday
Tried to find my mountain hideaway
Maybe next year maybe no go
I know you're watching me every minute of the day yeah
I've seen the signs and the looks and the pictures
They give your game away yeah
There's a dream that strings the road
With broken glass for us to hold
And I cut so far before I had to stay

Please please tell me now i
Is there something i should know
Is there something I should say
That would make you come my way
Do you feel the same 'cos you don't let it show

People stare and cross the road from me
And jungle drums they all clear the way for me
Can you read my mind can you see in the snow
And fiery demons all dance
When you walk through that door
Don't say you're easy on me
You're about as easy as a nuclear war
Cos the dream that strings the road
With broken glass for us to hold
And I got so far before I had to say

Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Is there something I should say
That would make you come my way
Do you feel the same 'cos you don't let it show

Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Please please tell me now
Can you see what makes me blow
Please please tell me now
Is there something I should know
Is there something i should say
That would make you come my way


Hungry Like The Wolf

Darken the city, night is a wire
Steam in the subway, earth is a afire
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
Woman, you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine, I'm after you
Mouth is alive, all running inside
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
I smell like I sound, I'm lost and I'm found
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf


New Religion

I've been now sauntering
Out and down the path sometime
Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I knew
Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs in things
Telling me not there, man, it's no go
Don't go there boy

I need a reason
I can't think without one now
Too much learning got to show
Call it treason
Maybe catch her, don't know how
Too many things, too much to know

Bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
Lady screaming, lady leave me out
'Cause sometimes people stare
Coming down, electric chair
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

Don't know why this evil bothers me
Take another chance boy, carry the fight,
You can take him if you're fast
So why is he trying to follow me?
Didn't I say if you're holding on
You'd be laughing at the last
How many reasons do they need?
I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice
I might just believe this time
You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
And it's us who makes the noise

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself,
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself,
It's a new religion

Okay, my reasoning might be clouded by the sun
But someone sees the departmental lie
You know this peacetime jabbing fist in stabbing knife
Only get one look before you die

Don't know why this evil bothers me
Take another chance boy, carry the fight,
You can take him if you're fast
So why is he trying to follow me?
Didn't I say if you're holding on
You'd be laughing at the last
How many reasons do they need?
I get along fine with them friends of mine
But you have to make a choice
I might just believe this time
You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
And it's us who makes the noise

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself,
It's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself,
It's a new religion

Gotta take pay the saints 'n sinners
In regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things
Walking in formation down the lane,
They carry their cross, make a church bell ring
Army majors pull a mean cool truth,
There lying in a swimming pool
Searching for the undeniable truth that
A man is just a fool

Don't know why this evil bothers me

Save A Prayer

You saw me standing by the wall,
Corner of a main street
And the lights are flashing on your window sill
All alone ain't much fun,
So you're looking for the thrill
And you know just what it takes and where to go

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after

Feel the breeze deep on the inside,
Look you down into your well
If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire
Take a chance
(Like all dreamers can't find another way)
You don't have to dream it all, just live a day

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after,
Save it till the morning after

Pretty looking road,
Try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise,
Melt the ice
And you wanted to dance so I asked you to dance
But fear is in your soul
Some people call it a one night stand
But we can call it paradise

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after

Save a prayer 'til the morning after


Wild Boys

The wild boys are calling
On their way back from the fire
In august moon's surrender to
A dust cloud on the rise
Wild boys fallen far from glory
Reckless and so hungered
On the razors edge you trail
Because there's murder by the roadside
In a sore afraid new world

They tried to break us,
Looks like they'll try again

Wild boys never lose it
Wild boys never chose this way
Wild boys never close your eyes
Wild boys always shine

You got sirens for a welcome
There's bloodstain for your pain
And your telephone been ringing while
You're dancing in the rain
Wild boys wonder where is glory
Where is all you angels
Now the figureheads have fell
And lovers war with arrows over
Secrets they could tell

They tried to tame you
Looks like they'll try again

Wild boys never lose it
Wild boys never chose this way
Wild boys never close your eyes
Wild boys always shine

The Union of the Snake is on the climb

Planet Earth

Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
I heard you making patterns rhyme
Like some new romantic looking for the tv sound
You'll see I'm right some other time

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

My head is stuck on something precious
Let me know if you're coming down to land
Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
Is is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth

Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This is planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This calling planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This is planet earth


Careless Memories

So soon,
Just after you've gone
My senses sharpen
But it always takes
So damned long
Before I feel how much
My eyes have darkened

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper...
With a careless memory

On the table
Signs of love life scattered...
And the walls break
We go crashing within
It's not as though--
As though you really mattered
But being close,
How could I let you go
Without some feeling
Some precious sympathy following

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper...
With a careless memory

I walk out into the sun
I try to find a new day
But the whole place
It just screams in my eyes
Where are you now?
Cuz I don't want to meet you
I think I'd die--
I think I'd laugh at you--
I think I'd cry--
What am I supposed to do,
Follow you?

Outside the thoughts
Come flooding back now...
I just try to forget you...
So easy to disturb
With a thought...
With a whisper...
With a careless memory...

Тексты песен альбома Notorious (1986)


Notorious

No-no-Notorious. Notorious. Ah. No-no-Notorious.

I can't read about it.
Burns the skin from your eyes.
I'll do fine without it.
Here's one you don't compromise.
Lies come hard in disguise.
They need to fight it out.
Not wild about it.
Lay your seedy judgements.
Who says they're part of our lives?

You own the money ;
You control the witness.
I'll leave you lonely.
Don't monkey with my business.
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons.
I heard your promise,but I don't believe it.

That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.

Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
So long as boys make a noise.
Fools run rings to break up.
Something they'll never destroy.
Grand Notorious slam (bam).
And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
Don't ask me to bleed about it;
I need this blood to survive.

That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.

That's why I've done it again. No. No.
That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
No-no-Notorious. Yeah.
That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
No-no-Notorious. Yeah.
That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
No-no-Notorious.


American Science

It's a little bit late now,
But there's times you will
Get a little bit out of hand,
Making all of a spill.
And if we can lay this down,
You're going all the way.
Take a look and I'll check it out,
'cause I can always find it.

Such a lonely place. Ooh.
This room without your face. Ooh.

Ooh. American Science.
All night long she can two-step and sway.
Ooh, it's such awful manners.
Don't keep me waiting, come and lie beside me.

A little megalomania becomes you, evidently.
There ain't a thing you can acquire
With your cling-wrap plaything.
Just look at this state.
I crawl around in a daze,
Like symptomatic case
Of your soul persuasion.

Such a lonely place. Ooh.
This room without your face. Ooh.

Ooh, it's a little bit later now,
And there's time you will let it all get
Out of hand when you feel you feel.
I just switched on the operation.
Such a lovely face. Ooh.
It pulls me into place. Ooh.


Skin Trade

Working on the weekend, baby.
She's working all through the night.
A jump into the deep end gave her
The evidence she required.
Takes five; she's got pearls.
Don't fake it when it comes to making money.
So she smiles. But that's cruel.
If you know what she thinks
If you knew what she was after.

Sometimes she wonders,
And she laughs in her frustration.

Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour.
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the Skin Trade.

Doctors of the revolution gave us
The medicine we desired.
Besides being absolutely painless
It's a question of compromise.
They got steel.
So cool to get angry at the weekend
And go back to school.
So big deal; it's what rules.
When it comes to making money,
Say yes, please; thank you.

Sometimes you wonder, and ask yourself the question.

I know the answer, but I'm asking you the question.


A Matter Of Feeling

How does it feel
When everyone surrounds you?
How do you deal?
Do crowds just make you feel lonely?
What do you say
When people come and try to pin you down?
Acquaintances smile,
But that's no understanding.
How, after a while
You keep falling off the same mountain.
Try to explain it,
But nothing really gets them that high.

Steal away in the morning;
Love's already history to you.
It's a habit you're forming.
This body's desperate for something new.
Just A Matter of Feeling
These moments of madness are sure to pass,
And tears will dry as you're leaving.
Who knows, you might find something to last.

Emotion's a game,
Saved up for a rainy Monday.
But you laugh just the same,
'cause it's been pouring on Sunday.
Call up your numbers,
And never let the zeros bring you down.
How does it feel?
Is time too heavy to hold?
Whatever you decide for the moment is holy.
Whenever you slow down to see life is passing by.

You can...
A matter of feeling. A matter of feeling.
A matter of feeling. A matter of feeling.


Hold Me

Yeah, this time.
Shall we walk?
Shall we run through my head, you understand?
Does the body you conceal
Need the touch of someone's hand?
Ashes; violations.
Who would they burn for?
In your isolation what can't you see?

I wonder if the light's down.
I wonder if they're listening.

Hold me. Lay your shame away.
Show me where your lovers stay.
Hold me. Lay your ghost away.
Show me for yourself.

You are lost and alone,
But a prisoner of your pride.
When the passions you ignore
You can never hide.
One of these days you're gonna find out,
'cause one of these days you're gonna try.
And what did I say
To make you wind up
With this spear of guilt inside.

I wonder if the light's down.
I wonder if they're listening.

Na na na na na na na. Hold Me.
Na na na na na na. Show me.
No na na na na na na na na na.


Vertigo (Do The Demolition)

Hey guys, turn it up to get sleazy.
Twist it in a vice
Nobody said it was easy.
Just use your naked eyes, oh.
How to see and how to hide it.
How to save it. Well, maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
You can take it and eat it, and chew your life supply.

Where's the real life in your illusion?
On the dark side your power's in confusion.
Do the dance. Do the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

Don't you feel edgy?
Bite your lips and bleed.
Conversation is empty;
Abandoned in the freeze.
Freedom is your condemnation.
Free to say well, maybe. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
You can take it or leave it.
Just need a little hit tonight.

Where's the real life in your illusion?
On the dark of power in confusion.
Do the dance. Do the demolition.
Don't lose the chance to hear 'cause you don't listen.

Maybe. Maybe. Maybe you can try to believe it.
Just need a little help tonight.

Where's the real life in your illusion?
On the dark side of power in confusion.
Do the dance. Do the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

Where's the real life in your illusion?
On the dark side of power in confusion.
Do the dance. Do the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

Hear it when you listen.
You don't hear when you don't listen.


So Misled

I....... So Misled.

In the summer of a London life,
"Gold," she said, was a month before I
Realised sold instead.
Babe, it's such an awful choice.
Don't break my back.
Take it easy, now you whipping boy.
Don't wanna feel the crack.

Trust my head to say lose it;
Now my body's got to use it.

I should not be So Misled.
I should not be So Misled.

Saw an advert in a magazine;
Safe it said, with the satisfaction
Guaranteed to cool your head.

I can't see the solution
To this state of confusion.


Meet El Presidente

Miss November Tuesday,
Bend your rubber rules.
Take your time, but don't take
Off your high heeled shoes.
She's in demand at dinner time;
She's on the factory wall.
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who's in control?
She blew your money
On taking a cruise.
If that isn't funny,
Well, watch out teacher.

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber's empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Dressed in flimsy clothing,
Use your lipstick line
To colour fear and loathing
With a pink disguise.
You've never refused when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack.
She's on the case at dinner time.
She's on the evening news.
And if you dare step out of line
You're going to be abused.
You may not like it;
You may not be scared.
But hell has no fury like a
Young girl's ego.

Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo.
You might adopt an attitude;
Look on the moral side.
But if police are after you,
Where's the best place to hide?
For this production
They gave her a gun.
Ain't no director--
So watch out actors!


Winter Marches On

The trade's on.
She drains emotion
To drink from her breast of fortune.
Dreams have frozen crystal in the morning.
Birth time rose;
A thorn for coronation.

All arise from your rest.
We will find enough there to feed you.
Soon you'll belong to the blest.
Spare us your lives while we need you.

Loud is the music the crowd is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on.
Loud is the music. The sky is ringing.
Out of my head as the winter marches on.

Loud is the music the crowd is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on.
Loud is the music. The sky is ringing.
Out of my head as the winter marches on.

And on.
Winter marches on.


Proposition

"Bring back that child," she said.
Spare me the price of freedom.
Cold is my baby's head,
Blown by the wind of reason.
Even the rage behind
Cries out to see
We're still standing
Under the closing edge.
Pay for the crime of feeling.

When all your pride is dead
You must be scared instead.

A quiet word is my Proposition.
A promise made of a fierce day.
A body bleeds for this coalition.
Without surrender if you stay.

"Show me my youth," she cried.
Wasted for desolation.
Hold up the sacrifice.
Pull down your institution.
Resting while anger flies.
Question's the same.
Who's deciding after the clouds have lain.
Shame on your generation.

When all your guilt lies dead
You must be scared instead.

When all your pain lies dead
You must be scared instead.

Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

I Don't Want Your Love

I don't mind if you're keeping someone else behind
I don't care 'cause you've got something I can share

Hey, take a chance, even if it's only
Only while we're dancing in the
Light of your second sight because
When you understand me
You might feel good around me now.

I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love so turn it around

I won't turn you out if you've got someone else
Someone else you care about
Because you must realise
My obsessive fascination is in your imagination

Your rhythym is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love

I like noise 'cause I like waking up the house
I cannot sit down. I can't shut my mouth
But when you understand me,
You might feel good around me

Your rhythym is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love


All She Wants Is

All she wants is
All she wants is
All she wants is

Spend your money on the corner now
Know you've gotta save some
For the shoeshine boys
You've been pulling 'em
By the hand inside
Oh...collecting all your toys
If you need a lead heaven now,
Just stick around--
You're going to be there
What do you dare?
What do you care?
What does your heart say now?

All she wants is
All she wants is
All she wants is

Divine intervention
Couldn't keep the word
From leaking out
With your pleasure in suspension
Not to mention
What you hang it around
If you need a lead to heaven, yeah
A place to share
In every position
What do you dare?
What do you care?
What does your heart say now?

All she wants is
All she wants is
All she wants is

More...

All she wants is


Too Late Marlene

Waking out of nowhere
And I let you in
Til my imagination went for a spin
I seen you every night
Been making out since then
And still I wonder why everybody's saying
That ice is thin.

And I think I know you
Just a little bit by nowA
And I think I can show you
You see baby, I don't want to fight about it

Send down your rain
Then who's to blame
And you'll understand
Because its' much too late to change

Awaken to this hunger
And then watch my heat
Grow paler than the moonlight
That you made me eat
And if we run our lives
Along a one way street
We'll always wonder why everytime
It still tastes just as sweet

Send down your rain
Then who's to blame
You'll understand
Because it's much too late to change
I will explain
We're to much the same
No I won't leave
Because it's just too late Marlene


Drug

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay
Up all night

Before you slip into the white
There's something i want you to know
In all your stretch of consciousness
You've still got a long way to go
Some make you spin,
Some make you sweat,
It's only here for you to choose
Some like it hot,
But I like it wet, so tell me...
What have we got to lose now?

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay
Up all night

(a hit, a hit)
A hit to fit reality
It's just a state of mind
And you, and it, it's more than just
And that's what you've got to find
We'll make you spin,
We'll make you sweat
All you have to do is choose me
And if you would try
And alternative high
Then tell me, what have we got to lose now?

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay
Up all night

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay
Up all night


Do You Believe In Shame

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in shame?
And if love can conquer all
Then why do we only feel the pain?

I heard you speak my name
Heard you singing The Stones
Maybe heard you laughing in a line of static
On my telephone

So why your eyelids are closed,
Inside a case of rust
And did you have to change
All your poets fire into frozen dust

I've tried to justify it to learn from your mistake
But where's the stupid lie that has to make it's point
With such a pointless waste

Come out

Do you believe in shame?
Do you believe in love?
And if they taste the same
Would you love again or abandon both?

I don't think I ever can
Belive my friend has gone
Keep saying it's alright I'm going to bring you back
But I know I'm wrong

There's nothing I can say
There's nothing left to do
It's just that lately I feel so damn lonely
When I think of you

And it may seem selfish now
But I'll hold on to the memory
Until all this fear is washed away
Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in life?
'Cos I believe a little part of you inside of me
Will never die...


Palomino

She lays on the wall
Watching the strangers drift away
Mid-day's ore--thick
With the sun of Arabia

She surrenders her voices
They gather, on the wind
Talkin, chanting, breathing
Into her body...yesterday

Awakened beside
The scent of burnt sugar--on the skin
Painting eyes--thick
With the color she brings in
Oh, and sure and strong
When the lightning tumbles down
Don't you frown
Everything will be
In time for this evening

If there's secrets
She has to be pardoned to
Every one of them
If there's heaven
She gets to the heart

And you'll know...
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Then I will run to you
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me rain instead
Now let me run... (let me run)

If there's secrets
She has to be pardoned to
Every one of them
If there's heaven
She gets to the heart

And you'll know...
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Then I will run to you
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me rain instead
Now let me run... (let me run)

Hey-hey....
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Then I will run to you
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me rain instead
Then I will run to you


Land

Baby, I'm really sorry
To break your dream
When it's so early
Headlights
On the windowpane
They're getting lost
In the light of day

Tomorrow is today
And soon my ship will sail

Away from here
To walk a howling sealane
Stay for me
Your love is life
For love is land

Baby, just hear my story
Before I leave
Before we write the end
Standing, across the ocean stream
I'll need to know
I'll need your country then

Tomorrow and today
You keep my landfall safe

Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sealane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
I need your love to land
Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sealane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
Your love is life, for love is land

Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sealane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
I need your love to land
Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sealane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
Your love is life, for love is land

Love is land
Love is land
Love is land


The Edge Of America

Walk the edge of America
A concrete beach to scrape my hand
Inside the subway stinking fear and shame
Becomes the violent breath

Vigilantes out on dawn patrol
But now there's nothing left to hide
I'm just a number on the metal fence
Which marks the great divide

Hey boy
Give your dreams a rest
If you're tired of searching
This is where it ends
There's nothing left to lose
Nothing to protest
Learn to love your anger now
Anger here is all you possess
Welcome to the age

Below the towers of the citadel
Seems someone overlooked the cost
Forgotten soldier of paradise
Now paradise is lost

Recognition never realized
Salvation lost among the crowd
So tell me beside this sterile sea
Where is your nation now?

And we say
Hey boy
Give your dreams a rest
If you're tired of searching
This is where it ends
There's nothing left to lose
Nothing to protest
Learn to love your anger now
Anger here is all you possess
Welcome to the edge

Тексты песен альбома Liberty (1990)


Violence Of Summer (Love's Taking Over)

Pick it up
This'll get you out of your head

China's hangin' out by the railings
Of the motorshed
She goes with a real hit biker
He's a metalhead
She looks me up and down
Talkin' dirty eyes
Sweet sayin' boy baby
I could lick ya any time

Keep it up
That's right...here we go again

Bit later I'm gonna run
Into her round the back
While other guys break heads
In the Shugar Shack
Don't give me drink I don't wanna
Get too stoned
Then we're gonna see who's gonna
Take who home

The violence of summer
A love's taking over
It starts with desire
Ends up under cover

Those lips will make me rise
You may look down but don't think twice
Slow death is on the way
So what man I still want to play....

One, two
This'll get you out of your mind
This'll get you up...let's go

Maybe take a ride goin' south
Where her mother writes
Before bad news catches up
We still got a little time
We'll leave it all so far away
One thing is sure we shouldn't stay
I take it all little Chine gonna
Get the runaround a run... a runaround

The violence of summer
A love's taking over
It starts with desire
Ends up under cover

China... na china...nanana
China... na china...nanana
China... na china...nanana
China... na china...nana

The violence of summer
A love's taking over
It starts with desire
Ends up under cover...mmm... love's takin' over
Yes love's takin' over
Love's takin over...


Liberty

I'll tell you something
To let you understand the way i feel
Just what you mean to me

Thank you for fine times
We nearly made it all the way but no
It wasn't meant to be

You say we feel the same
There ain't no blame to decide
But if a little time could change your mind
I'll be here...

And you can call me
(if you want to stay with me)
At your liberty
You can hold me
(if you want to be with me)
At your liberty

Do you remember
How lovers ripe on summer's heathen night
Would never seem to end?
And does December (December)
Come stirring with that finger of desire (desire)
To feel it once again?

You worry 'bout your friends
What if they find what's going on
But a little time could change your mind
I'll be here

And you can call me
(if you want to stay with me)
At your liberty
You can hold me
(if you want to be with me)
At your liberty

Help me out
I live in doubt
Sort me out
Yeah....

Don't make it every night
Don't wanna be the love of your life
So if you are inclined
To spend a little time
I'll be here

And you can call me
At your liberty
And you can hold me
At your liberty
And you can call me
At your liberty
And you can touch me girl
At your liberty
...touch me girl
(at your liberty)
Help me out
(at your liberty)
...sort me out
(at your liberty)
...or you can set me free

(if you wanna stay with me
If you wanna be with me
If you wanna stay with me
If you wanna write to me)
At your liberty


Hothead

(We will continue...er...to...er...watch
This situation very closely)
Here in the shadows where we stand
Watching lady, watching man
(And it may take nature three years the experts
Say to make up for the damage done)
Greedy for pictures as they roll
We see the planet lose control
(The average credit card holder has
About $750 of revolving debt)

Hothead! evolution nonstop evolution
Hothead!
Hothead! evolution nonstop evolution
Hothead! ....... Hothead
Time, time will change the picture
(Ah it's a good sign)
About time, time will change the picture

Power to change the point of view
But what is fake and what is true
(There are charges today that a consumer product
Is torching homes and killing Americans)
Blow by blow you're telling me
You'll change the course of history
(Our television tends to come out of Hollywood
Action cars, crashes, chases)

Hothead! evolution nonstop evolution
Hothead!
Hothead! evolution nonstop evolution
Hothead! ....... hothead
Time, time will change the picture
(Ah it's a good sign)
About time, time will change the picture

I turn you on you turn me off
Right now I'm suffering from this culture shock
Spread confusion wherever you can
With shaking heads and shaking hands
Cue propoganda to manipulate
Where there's megabucks you protect the state
Let the body break and the body tumble
So you build it up, then you watch it crumble

Time will change the picture
Evolution, nonstop evolution
About time, time will change the picture
Evolution, nonstop evolution
About time, time will change the picture
Evolution, NONSTOP!


Serious

Oh woman you make me feel
Like I'm on fire
Oh woman you make it real
It's the only way for me
So if we sometimes fight
Doesn't mean we got problems
Ain't always black and white
'n who cares anyway?

Doesn't have to be serious
Doesn't have to be serious
Serious
Doesn't have to be serious
Doesn't have to be serious

Oh baby you get so wild
Too much understanding
Oh baby you're such a child
Full up with on love and tears and cryin'
Don't worry if you're confused
We all tend to be sometimes
The whole world is getting used
That's just the way it is...

May be right, ooh it may be wrong
Doesn't have to be serious
Being hard isn't being strong
Doesn't have to be serious
Fighting for love, fighting for pain
Doesn't have to be serious
And if you win, oh what do you gain?
Doesn't have to be serious

Ooh, doesn't have to be serious
Maybe right, oh but maybe wrong
Doesn't have to be serious
Fighting for love, fighting for pain
Doesn't have to be serious
And if you win, oh what do you gain?
Doesn't have to be serious
Maybe right, oh but maybe wrong
Doesn't have to be serious
Being hard, isn't being strong


All Along The Water

Guess you know
Where I wanna go
Got to see the water flow
Try to understand

Got me trapped
Playing with me like a cat
Scrape your fingers down my back
Pin me to the ground

All along the water baby
Take me to your water babe
All along the water babe

I get fired
Can't you see I'm burning up
When you come and turn it up
Higher every time

If I stay
Oh the end is near
Come and get me out of here
Come and get me now

All along the water baby
Take me to your water babe
All along the water babe

Tell me is there any left
I wanna drink it up
Drink it up
Baby, if there's any left
I'll drink it up, drink it up, drink it up

All along the water baby
Take me to your water baby
All along the water baby

All along the water baby
Take me to your water baby
All along the water baby

All along the water baby
Thirsty for your water babe
Spare me from this torture baby
Take me to the water babe
All along the water baby

Sliding on your torso babe
Take me to your water babe
All along the water babe


My Antarctica

Once I thought that I was in control
But that was just another trick of fate
Playing with my life
There have been some times
I was so tied up
And I said to myself
Gotta break it all
But didn't really try

Two hearts beating in this place you've made
You know nothing changes my Antarctica

You can make your rhymes
And paint your rules
In black and white
For me to memorize
But never understand
And there will be time
For a thousand vows
Oh a thousand promises
We forgot
To be realized

Two hearts beating in this place you've made
You know nothing changes my Antarctica
One life pumping
We make love to make our heat
And we throb in my Antarctica

We'll keep the rhythm going
And we'll remember
We'll keep the laughter flowing
And we'll remember
We let the music jangle
And we'll remember

Two hearts beating in this place you've made
You know nothing changes my Antarctica
One life pumping
We make love to make our heat
And we throb in my Antarctica
Caught and sheltered this is what you made
You know I will stay here
In Antarctica

And you
Will stay here
With me


First Impression

(rock-n-roll star)

He turns on the animal
It's that time of day
Here comes little Johnny
From the back streets of the UK
He's got the answer
Doesn't go away
Who's gonna treat you right
Who's gonna change the world tonight...tonight

The lasting first impression
Is what you're looking for
I said oh, is that your first impression
And is that good enough for you?

Don't want illusion
A power glory ride
Doesn't run with the neighborhood shadows
On a death trip body slide
He won't give up
And he won't give in
And he won't let up until
He gets inside your pretty skin

I said oh, the lasting first impression
Is what you're looking for
I said oh, is that your first impression
And is that good enough for you?

He turns on the animal
It's that time of day
To make a little honey
In the backstreets of the UK
And he loves the noise
And he loves to play
Just living here and now boys
Coz tomorrow's on the way

I said oh, the lasting first impression
Is what you're looking for
I said oh, is that your first impression
And is that good enough for you?
Good enough for you
Enough for you
And is that good enough for you?

The possibility he sees the possibility
To seize the opportunity he sees the possibility
To turn on the animal

I said oh, the lasting first impression
Is what you're looking for
I said oh, is that your first impression
And is that good enough for you?
Good enough for you
Enough for you
And is that good enough for you?


Read My Lips

(ROCK IT!)

I got something
You got nothing to lose
I could give you
So much more than you're used to
Move a little closer
Maybe we can slip away

Right now we could use a little privacy
All too much attention from your friends in here
Move a little closer
Trust me
I'm not on the make
(That's a lie)
If I could pull you over
C'mon lady, what d'you say

Get a grip
Don't resist
Read my lips

It's a trip
Ain't a risk
Read my lips

Get a grip
Don't resist
Read my--
(lips)

Part of you wanna get lucky
Part of you wanna go trade
Part of you wanna come looking
Part of you want to stay.....

(ROCK IT)

Get a grip
Don't resist
Read my lips

It's a trip
Ain't a risk
Read my lips

She's all mine...


Can You Deal With It?

There must be somebody
Who'll make love to me
Blow the rules away
Trash these yesterdays

Live in sympathy
Use psychology
To find the twist in me
Can you deal with it?

A recent enquiry
Showed no boundary
Love's the only way
Can you handle it?

Can you deal with it?
Can you deal with it?
Can you deal with it?
Can you deal with it?

Can you deal with it?
(when you ain't sorry...)
Can you deal with it?
(for all that you apologize)
Working up to something
I know you're up to something

Can you deal with it?
(something's got to happen)
Can you deal with it?
(something's got to get me up)
Can you deal with it?
(nothing ever happens)
Can you deal with it?
(nothing's ever good enough)


Venice Drowning

Venice breeding shy chimeras
Of sex and violence
In the purple evening silence
Venice dreaming of a partner
Fills your hands with breasts of marble
From the cradle to the table
Coax this naked treasure from
Your saviour

Come swim into my love
Come swim into my life

Divine blasphemer tempting
Holy beads of jism
With the scarlet catechism
Her lips will answer
(oh, her lips will answer)
How to be ther perfect stranger
The perfect lover wanting
And as you'll discover...giving
And as you'll discover...being

Come swim into my love
Come swim into my life
Enter this sublime corrosion
Venice drowning in emotion

The body stirs and is reanimated
Only briefly--
But then life is very brief

Venice drowning
Venice drowning
Venice drowning
Venice drowning


Downtown

Deliver us from evil
We go with the flow
But here's a little secret
I think you ought to know
Providers and abusers
They know where to go
With Sunday refugees from Sunday TV shows

Downtown all of the way down
Downtown all of the way downtown

Let's sink imagination
Past your wildest wild
(all of the way downtown)
Go way below below below
Is it such a crime?
The uptown can't teach you how to live
They don't have the time
Coz where i'm gonna take you
Is a state of mine

Downtown all of the way down
Downtown all of the way downtown
Downtown all of the way down
Downtown all of the way downtown

You better learn to use your heart
You got to loose your money
You better use it all up
Coz you can't take it with you
When you're going down...

You'll never come home babe
You'll never come home baby
And you'll never be alone
All of the way downtown
All of the way...
Down
Down
Down
Downtown...

Тексты песен альбома The Wedding Album (1993)


Too Much Information

Destroyed by MTV,
I hate to bite the hand that
Feeds me so much information
The Pressure's on the screen
To sell you things that you don't need
It's too much information for me

Hey TV Child look into my eyes
Here by intervention I want your attention

Promotion Boy in a suit and tie
He wants you to use it
You're too shot to loose it

It's pumpin down the cable
Like never seen before
A COLA (condom) manufacturer is sponsoring the war

Here comes the news with love from me to you

Destroyed by ABC
I hate to bite the hand that
Feeds me so much information
The Pressure's on the screen
To sell you things that you don't need
It's too much information for me

Turn on the tube
Hits you with the Groove
Advertizin muzik
We want you to choose it

These teeth are white trainers ULTRA BRITE

This band is perfect just don't scratch the surface

We covered all the angles
The survey people said
Just put us on the cover we'll be smilin anyway

This video was made with LOVE to you

Destroyed by BBC
I hate to bite the hand that
Feeds me so much information
The Pressure's on the screen to
Sell you things that you don't need
It's too much information for me

Destroyed by MTV
I hate to bite the hand that
Feeds me so much information
The Pressure's on the screen to
Sell you things that you don't need
It's too much information for me

Dialate your MIND
Dialate your MIND
Dialate your MIND

Got to give it to me
Got to listen to me
Got to give in to me
Now I'm on the line

I try......


Ordinary World

Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you talking softly

I turned on the lights, the TV
And the radio
Still I can't escape the ghost of you

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some are saying
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence
Once prompted you to say
"Pride will tear us both apart"
Well now pride's gone out the window
Cross the rooftops
Run away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me?
Crazy, some'd say
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Every one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world
Every one
Is my world


Love Voodoo

When I first met you on the roof
You cought me in your web of youth
But now I know the wicked truth
It's much to late so what's the use in fighting?

You peel me like an onion skin
And wonder at the state I'm in
One day you'll turn up to begin
And find there's nothing left but innuendo

Beside you others fade away
Like Amateurs in love's charade
Much more than just a game you play
These certain rules become a way of living

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
Designed to Manipulate

The Queen of sensuality
You shelter me from Liberty
It's nothing short of Piracy
That's not to say it doesn't please me sometimes.

Now this may come as no surprise
But I'm content to compromise
Until the day you realize
That I have been manipulating you

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
Designed to Manipulate

Yes, I'm tied up inside your loving
But it's voodoo to me

Everynight how I try
How I try to resist you
But it's no good to me

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
Designed to Manipulate

Night after night I try to prove
That I can resist you
Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
Designed to Manipulate


Drowning Man

He's sinking faster than a drowning man
He'll grab a hold of anyone he can
Gun in his poket and a heart of ham
Uncle Sam

He's dying faster than a rabid dog
Infect us all now he's losing blood
Nose for trouble and a soul of rock
Smokey's man

Don't drag me down
I don't wanna drown
Your going down

NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA

There's not much flesh
Just skin and bone
Cheeks sunk deep
Eyes popping wide

Don't put out a hand to help him
This drowning man will bite it right off

RIGHT OFF
RIGHT OFF
RIGHT OFF

Don't drag me down
I don't wanna drown
Your going down

NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA

He's selling faster than a magazine
Infect us all with his TV Screen

Don't drag me down
I don't wanna drown
Your going down

NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA


Shotgun

Get it together
Thing is jumpin'
I wanna see your
Bullets pumpin'

Shotgun

Itchy finger
On the trigger
Got to make the
Shooter bigger

Shotgun


Come Undone

Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin
I've been waiting for you
Signed, with a home tattoo,
Happy birthday to you was created for you

(can't ever keep from falling apart
At the seams
Can't I believe you're taking my heart
To pieces)

Oh, it'll take a little time,
Might take a little crime
To come undone now

We'll try to stay blind
To the hope and fear outside
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
And blow me in to cry

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

[Verse 2]
Words, playing me deja vu
Like a radio tune I swear I've heard before
Chill, is it something real
Or the magic I'm feeding off your fingers

(Can't ever keep from falling apart
At the seams
Can I believe you're taking my heart
To pieces)

Lost, in a snow filled sky, we'll make it alright
To come undone now


Breath After Breath

Breath After Breath
Ama! Danca!

Every day I wake up in this room
And I don't know
Where I come from,
Where I'm going to
Then I hear the voice

Senhora musa da paz
Me abraca
Me carrega no teu andor

Dormir no colo da dor
Amiga, arrasa!
A tua mao desenhou
O sonho na areia
Agora, entrega de vez
Meu rumo
E vida

From where I stand
The truth isn't black and white
Alone we live and die
We love and fight
Breath after breath
We carry this mortal coil
Safe for tomorrow

Do I dare
Oh do I dare
Follow through the goorsteps
My whole body hears
Beating on my heart like a feather
Beating of a moment til I disappear

Diga uma palavra alegre
Manda um recado
Que seja agoca
Faz o mundo ficar novo
E dancar no colo do tal de amor

From where I stand
The truth isn't black and white
Alone we live and die
We love and fight
Breath after breath
We carry this mortal coil
Safe for tomorrow

Circles in sand are washed out into the sea
Just as we slip on through to eternity
Breath after breath
We carry this mortal coil
Safe for tomorrow

Diga uma palavra, cara
Bem alegre
Corre, manda logo um recado
Me abraca
Faz um clima doce
Me arrepia!
Chega de sufocol
Me poe louco!
Me faz diamante
Teu amante
Danca ao som do vento
Me ensina
Basta de sufoco
Nao faz jogo...

A flame of love is burning
Always
The song is of the planets
Oh whooooooo
The dance is to the rhythm of the rain
Where everyone is coming from
Is coming to

And birth is just a
Breath after breath


Umf

Here we stand
In the shadow of the master plan
Makin' touble wherever we can,
Stir it up, stir it up, stir it up
Can't you see this boy is going cheap -
Knockdown to a basement deal
But I really won't stop til I get to the top
Take it from me, I'm waiting here on my knees
And I love the way you tease me
(oh) such a wonderful person
Don't play rough -
It's easy when you know your stuff
Say please and sure enough, so kind,
I'm makin love to the ultimate mind

Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
You could feel a love come tumbling down
I just want to wrap myself in you baby
We could tell the world we're fooling around

Ultimately, I'd say shes toying with me
It's a case of wait and see,
But right now I'm gonna keep my pants on
A to Zed, shes doin' it to my head
We don't need to go to bed, you'll find,
To make love to the ultimate mind

(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
Put it to me, baby
(you could feel a love...)

(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
Wanna wrap myself in you, baby
(we'll tell the world...)

Talk me round,
Let's do it right here and now
I don't want you cooling down,
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
We could fit reality's two-way split personality
Life's a bitch, but I'm fine,
Making love to the ultimate mind
Heaven's bent, we're completely innocent
We all got to pay the rent,
And in time we learn to compromise
Talkin' tall, but I feel invisible
Can you see me after all that I said,
There's only one thing for it

Take a look, put it to me, baby
You could feel a love come tumbling down
I just want to wrap myself in you baby
We can tell the world were fooling around

(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
You could be a love come tumbling down
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
I just want to wrap myself in you baby
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
We could tell the world we're fooling around
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
You could feel a love come tumbling down
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
I just want to wrap myself in you baby
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
We could tell the world we're fooling around
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
Come on, take a look (put it to me baby)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)

I'm making love to the ultimate mind
Ultimate mind
Ultimate mind...


None Of The Above

There was a time I was so afraid
Of everything people around me said
That I wanted to hide my face in the shadows

There was a time on a bed of nails
I was dreaming a plan I thought could not fail
But no power under the sun could pull it together

I can't take this attitude
Got to show now I got to move on
God knows where I'm going to
Its a lonely burning question

I am I myself alone
Realize I never need to use No-one
Money, power, Holy roads.
Freedom puts my faith in none of the above

If there's a time that we ever see
The nature of life in reality
Then I want to be there
To kick at the answer

I can't take this attitude
Got to show now I got to move on
God knows where I'm going to
Its a lonely burning question

I am I myself alone
Realize I never need to use No-one
Money, power, Holy roads.
Freedom puts my faith in none of the above
I am I myself alone
Realize I never need to use No-one
Money, power, Holy roads.
Freedom puts my faith in none of the above

I am I myself alone
Realize I never need to use No-one
Money, power, Holy roads.
Freedom puts my faith in none of the above
I am I myself alone
Realize I never need to use No-one
Money, power, Holy roads.
Freedom puts my faith in none of the above

None of the above
I stand by none of the above


Femme Fatale

Here she comes you better watch your step.
She's going to break your heart in two
Its true it's not hard to realize
Just look into her false coloured eyes
She'll build you up just to put you down,
What a clown

'Coz everybody knows... she's a femme fatale
Things she does to please, sees just a little tease
See the way she walks, hear the way she talks

You're written in her book,
You're number 37 take a look
She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy she's from the street
Before you start your're already beat
She's going to play you for a fool
Yes it's true

'Coz everybody knows... she's a femme fatale
Things she does to please, sees just a little tease
See the way she walks, hear the way she talks
She will try to put you doen, the hardest girl around

'Coz everybody knows... she's a femme fatale
Things she does to please, sees just a little tease
She's a femme fatale.


Shelter

I watch you from my window working this vicious road
You shudder when the wind blows
Girl you're looking beat and cold
Don't know your situation but you look so alone to me
In my imagination this is how the message reads

Just come softly to me in the shelter of my heart

Trust my intuition you're the one I've got to know
I give without condition wouldn't try to save your soul
Money or reputation doesn't mean a thing to me
Special communication it's the only thing we need

Reaching out... Calling out
Just come softly to me
Calling out...
Hear me now
In the shelter of my heat

Reaching out... calling out...
Hear me now... do you read me?
In the shelter of my heart.

Here is no pain to feel
Here is safe for lips unsealed
Just come softly to me
Reaching out
Reaching out for your love babe
Calling out
Calling out for your love
For your love babe
Just come softly to me in the shelter of my heart


To Whom It May Concern

Dear Mr. Bones, I've (We've) had enough
You can try to pull us down
With your pinstipe weasle stuff
But word travels in this town
I wouldn't write home about you
We're better off without you
Without you Mr. Bones

Some people feed on other people's troubles
Some people beat on other people's meat
Some people want to bleed us dry
And some people...Gonna down on your feet.

You said "Boy's I'll get you more
But you have got to pay me by the hour".
Anyways you are just another bore
Who believes he's a superpower.

When you talk about loyalty
I just hope you realize
Since you ate my roalities
Mr. Bones this is goodbye.

This is goodbye and such hereinafter shall be reffered.
Notwithstanding or foregoing statements unpreferred.
Don't claim you understand
When you've not heard a single word, a dicky bird.

Some people feed on other people's troubles.
Some people beat on other people's meat.
Some people want to bleed us dry
And some people... gonna drown on your feet.


Sin Of The City

Coat check girl up in Happyland
Has a violent row with a Cuban man
Julio leaves in a drunken rage
Comes back with the gasoline
The club has no fire exit
The club had no door
Only five people came out alive

The sin is that 89 died
89 dead
89 dead
89 dead
89 dead

The sin is that a year and a half
Before the fire chief's out
And he's raising cain brands
Happyland hazzard close down but no.

No-one ever paid him no mind
City living heavy trouble
City living rough
We are given angry heart
But angers not enough

Daily News reviews of the landlords life
Found six thousand code violations light.
The city has more a hundred thousand wars
All for one of Forbes' Four Hundred whores.
Just one fire cracker on a big bonfire
Of self serving penny pinching wiseguy style.
Never allowing for the human condition.
The sin is that these guys survive.

City living heavy trouble
City living rough.
We are given angry heart
But anger's not enough... rpt.

You're using your people up.
Stop killing your people now.
Stop wasting your people now
Sin of the City.

Тексты песен альбома Thank You (1995)


White Lines

White! Ooh-white! White! Ooh-white!
White! Ooh-white! White! Ooh-white!
(White Lines)
Vision dreams of passion
(Going through my mind)
And all the while I think of you
(Pipeline)
A very strange reaction
(Yours to unwind)
The more I see, the more I do

Something of a phenomenon,
Telling your body to come along
Cause White Lines blow away
Blow! Rock! Blow!

Ticket to ride a white-line highway
tell all your friends they can go my way
Pay your toll, sell your soul
pound for pound it costs more than gold
The longer you stay, the more you pay
my white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or through your vein
with nothing to gain except killing your brain

Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Aaaaah...
Higher baby, get higher baby, get higher baby
and don't ever come down... Free base!

Pipeline (pure as the driven snow)
connected to my mind
(and now I'm having fun, baby!)
Highrise (it's getting kind of low)
'cause it makes you feel so nice
(I need some one on one, baby!)

Tell me it'll blow your mind away (baby)
going to your little hideaway
'Cause white lines (what do white lines do?)
blow away
Blow! - Rock! - Blow!

A million magic crystals painted pure and white
A multi-million dollars almost overnight
Twice as sweet as sugar, twice as bitter as salt
And if you get hooked baby,
it's nobody else's fault - so don't do it!

Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Aaaaah...
Higher baby, get higher baby, get higher baby
and don't ever come down... Free base!

(Don't you get too high)
Don't you get too high, baby
(It turns you on)
You really turn me on and on
(Can't you ever come down)
My temperature is rising
('Til the thrill is gone)
No, I don't want you to go

A street kid gets arrested, gonna do some time
He got out three years from now
just to commit more crime

A businessman is caught with twenty four kilos
He's out on bail, and out of jail,
and that's the way it goes!

Cane! Sugar! Cane! Sugar! Cane!

Athletes reject it - governors correct it
Gangsters, punks, and smugglers are
thoroughly respected
The money gets divided - the women get excited
Now I'm broke and it's no joke
it's hard as hell to fight it - don't buy it!

Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! - Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y'all)
Rock (put 'em up, put 'em up, put 'em up!)
Aaaaah...


I Wanna Take You Higher

Beat is getting stronger,
feel it getting stronger
Sound is getting longer, too
Music is a thought to me

I want to, I want to
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher) Whoo!

Beat is nitty gritty, feel it nitty gritty
Sound is in your city, too
Music's been a thought to me

Don't you, don't you, don't, don't
Don't you wanna get higher (take you higher)
Don't you wanna get higher (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)

Boom shaka-laka-laka!
Boom shaka-laka-laka!
Boom shaka-laka-laka!

Beat is nitty gritty...
I 'm gonna take you high...
Beat is there, I'm with you
Beating there to lose you
Sound is there to help you groove
Music's been a thought to me
Everybody take your places

I'm gonna take you higher (take you higher)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Higher, higher, higher, mmm...
I wanna take you (take you higher)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I'm gonna take you higher (take you higher)
Don't you wanna get higher (take you higher)
(Take you higher)
I'm gonna take you high (higher)
I'm gonna take you high (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby - baby, baby, baby (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (take you higher)
Higher (take you higher)
(Take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby - baby, baby, baby (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (take you higher)
Higher (take you higher)
(Take you higher)
I'm gonna take you (take you higher)
I'm gonna take you (take you higher)
I'm gonna take, gonna take, gonna take you higher
(light my fire)
I wanna take you, I wanna take you higher
(take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my (take you higher)


Perfect Day

Just a Perfect Day
Drank Sangria in the Park
And Later, when it gets dark
We go Home

Just A Perfect Day
Feed Animals in the Zoo
And Later, a movie too
And then Home

It's Such a Perfect Day
I'm Glad I spent it with you
Such a Perfect Day
You Just keep me hanging on
You Just keep me hanging on

Just a Perfect Day
Problems all Left Alone
Weekenders on our own
Such Fun

Just a Perfect Day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone new

It's Such a Perfect Day
I'm Glad I spent it with you
Such a Perfect Day
You Just keep me hanging on
You Just keep me hanging on

You're gonna reap just what you sow.

Lay Lady Lay

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colors you have in your mind
I show them to you and you see them shine

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay
stay with your man a while
Until the break of day
let me see you make him smile

His clothes are dirty but his, his hands are clean
And you are the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay lady stay
stay with your man a while

Why wait any longer for the world to begin
you can have your cake and eat it, too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
when he's standing in front of you

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay
stay while the night is still ahead

I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night

Stay lady stay
stay while the night is still ahead


Watching The Detectives

Nice girls not one with a defect
Cellophane shrink-wrapped so correct
Red dogs under illegal legs
She looks so good that he gets down and begs
She is watching the detectives, oh he's so cute
She is watching the detectives
When they shoot shoot shoot shoot.
They beat him up until the teardrops start.
But he can't be wounded cos he's got no heart

Long shot of that jumping sign
Visible shivers running down my spine
Cut the baby taking off her clothes
Close-up of the sign that says "we never close"
You snatch a tune, you match a cigarrette.
She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet
I don't know how much more of this I can take
She filing her finger nails
while they're dragging the lake
She is watching the detectives oh he's so cute
She is watching the detectives
Oh they shoot shoot shoot shoot
They beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can't be wounded
cos he's got no heart

Now you think you're alone until you realize
you're in it
Now fear is here to stay love is here for a visit.
They call it instant justice when it's past
the legal limit.
Someone's scratching at the window. I wonder
who is it?
The detectives come to check if you belong to
the parents
Who are ready to hear the worst about their
daughter's disappearance.
Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay
It only took my little fingers to blow you away

Just like watching the detectives. Don't get cute
It's just like watching the detectives.
I get so angry when the tear-drops start
but he can't be wounded cause he's got no heart.
Watching the detectives.
It's just like watching the detectives.
Watching the detectives.
Watching the detectives.


911 Is A Joke

Now I dialed nine one one a long time ago
Don't you see how late they're reactin'
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue truck and bag the goner
They don't care 'cause they get paid anyway
They treat you like an ace that can't be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line then you're dead today

Late comings with the late comin' stretcher
That's a body bag in disguise
y'all I'll betcha
I call 'em body snatchers
quick they come to fetch you
with an autopsy ambulance
just to dissect ya

They are the kings 'cos they swing amputation
Lose your arms your legs to them it's compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation

So get up get get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get get get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

911 is a joke

Everyday they don't never come correct
You can ask my man right here
with the broken neck
He's a witness to the job never bein' done
He would've been in full effect 911
They the token to your life when it's croakin'
They need to be in a pawn shop on a
911 is a joke we don't want 'em
I call a cab 'cause a cab will come quicker
The doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that 'cause they
Flick you off like fleas
They be laughin' at ya
while you're crawlin' on our knees
And to the strength so go the length
Thinkin' you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
Cause 911 is a fake life saver

Ow, ow 911 is a joke


Success

Here comes success
Over my hill
Here comes success
Here comes my car
Here comes my Chinese rug
Here comes success
Yeow!

In the last ditch
I'll think of you
In the last ditch
I will be true
Sweetheart, I'm telling you
Here comes the zoo

Here comes success
Hoo-ray success

Oh oh success
Hoo-rah success
Oh Oh Sucess
I can't help myself

I just gotta gotta gotta...
I can't stand it!
I need success

Ah, Ah, Ah

Here comes my face
It's plain bizzare
Here comes my face
Out of the crowd
Sweetheart I'm telling you
Here comes the zoo

oh oh oh

Baby lets blast off
We blast of for success
I'm gonna crash my car
I'm gonna wear a dress
Oh you slay me baby
Were gonna do the twist
Were gonna hop like a frog
Cause we love success

da, da, da, da, da


Crystal Ship

Before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We'll meet again, we'll meet again

So tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly

The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I'll drop a line


Ball Of Confusion

People moving out
People moving in
Why?
Because of the color of their skin
Run, Run, Run but you sure can't hide

An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Vote for me, I'll set you free
Rap on brother, rap on

Well the only person talking about love
thy brother is a preacher
See, No body is interested in learning
but the teacher

Segregation
Domination
Demonstration
Integration
Aggrivation
Humiliation
Obligation to the nation

Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion
That's what your world today
Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion
That's what your world today

is like an all time high
City's aflame in the summer time, and
Oh, The beat goes on

Evolution, Revolution, Evolution....
Gun Control, the sound of soul
Politicians, can you fucking believe them?

And the band played on
And the band played on

Round and around and around we go
Where ever we're standing no body knows

Take a look around
Can't you hear me talking to you?
Just a

Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion
That's what your world today
Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion
That's what your world today

See it in the air
Tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
Killers gangs watch your ass

Gun control, the sound of soul

Segregation
Domination
Demonstration
Integration
Aggrivation
Humiliation
Obligation to the nation

Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion
That's what your world today

That's what your world today
Ball of Confusion, Ball of Confusion.... repeat


Thank You

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be lovin' you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.
Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.

My love is strong
With you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
My, my, my,
Inspiration is what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.

And so today, my world it smiles,
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness....I'm glad.


Drive By

It was the hottest day in July
And all along Santa Monica Blvd
cars were stood still
And a gleaming metal tube
Would stretch all the way from Highland
Back to La Brea.
And she met under Los Angeles sunshine

Young man was sitting at the wheel
On his way to make a pickup
Turned off the air-con
Rolled down the window
And began to sweat

Out over the Hollywood hills
He saw the clouds building
Like great dark towers of rain
Ready to come tumbling down
Any day now
Not a day too soon

(any day now)

And as the music drifted in
From other cars
His eyes started to slip
This is the story of his dream

Silver...

(Sing Blue Silver, Sing Sing Blue Silver)

This is the story of his dream...


I Wanna Take You Higher Again

Beat is getting stronger,

Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher) Whoo!

Everybody take your places

I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my fire (light my fire)
I wanna take you higher (take you higher)
Higher, higher, higher, mmm...

I'm gonna take, gonna take, gonna take you higher
(light my fire)
I wanna take you, I wanna take you higher
(take you higher)
Baby, baby, baby, light my (take you higher)

Тексты песен альбома Medazzaland (1997)


Medazzaland

(Oh, Medazzaland)
I have a problem, they said they can solve
Soon I won't speak
I have no words left in me
I dream in pictures
But the sound is muted
I have no way to understand what they say
(Into Medazzaland)
People are starting to talk
But I don't hear them anymore
Now I can't see
But I am still able to think
Do I have any feeling left?
What are they saying about me?
Do they really understand what's wrong?
I feel their hands on my skin
The time has come for them to begin
I'm sinking deeper and deeper
Into Medazzaland
I can feel the scalpel on my skin
It's cutting in
Deeper and deeper
I'm in Medazzaland
(Oh Medazzaland)


Big Bang Generation

Falling into space
At the end of time
Black as the black in your eye
Staring through a hole in the ozone
There's nobody home
To play back your ansaphone
Climax out of blue
Is it just another high?
No there must be something new
Now that I'm so alien

Entering the atmosphere
Don't know what is waiting here (oh no)
If there's nothing left to fear
When they come together in
the Big Bang Generation

Teardrop in the sky
Bursting my eye
Sound of morning sighs
This life is stranger than fiction
Surreal addiction
It's all I recognize
Feeding off the habit
Losing control
Where is it leading to?
Now that I'm the alien

Entering the atmosphere
Don't know what is waiting here
If there's nothing left to fear
When we come together in
the Big Bang Generation

(Feel like I'm losing control)
Big Bang Generation
(Now that I'm here alone)
Big Bang Generation
(Feel like I'm losing control)
Big Bang Generation
(Feel like I'm losing it)
We're gonna come together here

Where you coming from?
When we gonna burn out? Don't know
Having so much fun
Greetings from the Big Bang Generation
Big Bang Generation

Meet you in the Big Bang Generation
Together in the Big Bang Generation
Together we're the Big Bang Generation


Electric Barbarella

I knew when I first saw you on the showroom floor
You were made for me
I took you home and dressed you up in polyester
Princess of my dreams
Emotionless and cold as ice
All of the things I like
The way you look
The way you move
The sound you're makin'
In ultra-chrome, latex and steel

I plug you in
Dim the lights
Electric Barbarella
Your perfect skin
Plastic kiss
Electric Barbarella
Try to resist
Then we touch
Hallucinate and tranquilize

(she's so fine)
(she's all mine)

Our private life is subject to investigation
No time to waste
People say they heard about our deviation
But you never looked so good
Wear the fake fur and fake pearls for me
And put on your mystery
The way I feel you know
I'll never keep you waiting
In ultra-chrome, latex and steel

I plug you in
Dim the lights
Electric Barbarella
Your perfect skin
Plastic kiss
Electric Barbarella
Try to resist
Then we touch
Hallucinate and tranquilize

Princess of my dreams
Princess of my dreams
Major domo plasticomo Barbarella
(She's so fine)
Pro-genetic you Electric Barbarella
(She's all mine)
My pretty pretty pretty pretty Barbarella


Out Of My Mind

Light a candle
Lay flowers at the door
For those who were left behind
And the ones who've gone before
But here it comes now
Sure as silence follows rain
The taste of you upon my lips
The fingers in my brain
Ever gentle as it kills me where I lay
Who am I to resist?
Who are you to fail?

Got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you what's left to believe in?

And I could be so sorry
For the way it had to go
But now I feel your presence
In a way I could not know
And I wonder
Do you ever feel the same
In whispering darkness
Do you ever hear my name?

Got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you, what's left to believe in?

How could you dare
To become so real
When you're just a ghost in me

And I've got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you, what's left to believe in?

Here in the back of my mind

Deep in the back of my mind


Who Do You Think You Are

I'm giving you the news
Your domination's through
You gave the best you've got
Now I'm out on top

If you're in any doubt
Listen to me
I've got a right to say
If you know what it's all about
Who do you think you are?

Don't want to be your enemy
If I'm not the one you want me to be
And I've got to do things the way that I do

Always trying to control me
Who do you think you are?

Our time on earth is running through
(This is not a question of my pride)
Sometimes I think it's a game to you
(Ever wonder how I feel inside?)
And sometimes I play along
But man I've got a mind!

You've got to live with yourself
For the rest of you life
Do you understand?
Everybody asks themselves the question
Who do you think you are?

Why do you feel ashamed
When you can't explain the things I say
To other people

It's just occurred to me
A possibility
The thought that you might really want to be me?


Silva Halo

You shine
Where others fade
You dare
To be so brave

Don't compromise
No one can touch you
Just believe
Just believe

Come to heaven, silva halo
Come to heaven, silva halo
Silva halo
Silva halo


Be My Icon

I follow you, I wait for you
You know there's no escape from me
You're more than wallpaper in my room

I write you letters and bring you gifts
I'm going through all your trash
I love you so much,
I keep your cigarette butts

Now is the time to come out
Come out of the shadows

No need to be scared
You're gonna be so happy
I built you a shrine
Now you can Be My Icon

I'm out on the edge
There's no way back inside
All my friends are gone
They didn't understand me

It makes so much sense
It's no coincidence
Just you and I alone here
And I need you
Oh

How many hours have I stared at my face in the mirror
I get worried sometimes that the image will shatter

No need to be scared
You're gonna be so happy
I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon
No need to be
Scared
Now you can
Be My Icon

I know this is real
Believe it
We belong together
What ever happens
You're gonna be with me
Forever

Be my icon
You will be my icon
Be my icon
you will be my icon


Buried In The Sand

Can't say that I was surprised
When you broke the ties
They were hanging by a thread
But now I have realized
It couldn't be the same
Cause everything has changed
And still I held out my hand
Tried to pull you back
But you were buried in the sand

I'm glad that you came along
But here our journey ends
I say goodbye to you
My very dear friend

You were buried in the sand.
Head buried in the sand.
You were buried in the sand.
Head buried in the sand.
You are buried in the sand.


Michael You've Got A Lot To Answer For

I came over your place today
In a roundabout sort of way
Nothing holding me
Just the company
Gentle giving the afternoon

Don't ever try to be any more
Michael, you've got a lot to answer for
You unlocked some of the doors
To my soul

And I don't see you for awhile
Thinkin of you will make me smile
You never bother me with responsibility
Misbehaving in candlelight

Don't ever try to give any more
Michael, you've got a lot to answer for
You got me wakin up wise to the world

Trust you to get caught up in somebody's war
You'll come out of it all in time, I'm sure
Just remember what friends were put here for
Michael, you've got a lot to answer for

And I know that you're gonna call
If you need me
When you need me
If you need me


Midnight Sun

As I watch you flickering slowly
In the shadows, nothing to hold
It's as if I don't recall our time before
And would it be so wrong
Not to remember?

There are times I look at you differently
Like I'd never seen you before
Funny after all we've done
You could be someone I don't know at all
(Don't know you at all)

Catch me I don't want to fall

But you pull the mountain from under me
Look, I'm dangling up in the blue
And it's a cartoon coyote eternity
Before I drop down to you
What am I supposed to do now?

There is something beautiful shining
In the far off night of your hair
Funny for a while it seemed to come from the sky
But it's in your head
Yes it fills your head

You and I don't always fly
Let me go I want to fall
Deep into the dark
But I'll get back to you
And I'll always know how to find you
Cause you shine like the midnight sun

Yes I'll always be here beside you
When I follow the midnight sun

Follow follow follow the midnight sun.


So Long Suicide

Do you know how to feel?
Do you know what it means?

Rock-a-bye baby it's time to break
The habit that you fed
Sweet sorrow while the cherished dead
Blow in my mouth, every breath I take
Although I need you I don't want to bleed for you

So long suicide
Going right out of sight, out of mind
Leave me alone and abandoned
Hello, I'm alive
I'm loaded alive, yes I know
In my bones I know what is going to do it for me

I steal the beauty and I taste the hurt
There's always time for pretty flowers
growing in the dirt
But time is your needle aimed to my heart
And I must be hollow because I can't follow there

So long suicide
Gone right out of sight, out of mind
Leaving me alone and abandoned
Hello, I'm alive
I'm loaded alive and I know
In my bones I know what I'm good for
Hello I'm alive
I'm loaded alive yes I know
In my bones I know what I'm doing

And I'm scared of being ordinary
God I swear to live like anyone
And you know it's hard to swallow
But life goes on

And after all this crash and swell
We are just human
And after all is said and done
We're only human
You're out of sight and out of mind
I'm saying so long suicide

The half dreamed shade of yesterday
In bloom tomorrow


Undergoing Treatment

We are undergoing treatment
Watching others in the news
Studying our worst reviews
They say we'll get over it
Disappear like dinosaurs
To the sound of small applause
Resign to the mid-price section

If you see me walking in the garden
Don't ever ask me for an autograph
If you ever catch me in the arcade
Don't even stop me for a photograph

We are undergoing treatment
'Til our ethic fits the scene
Laid out in Q Magazine
They crave our conformity
Mediocre to the bone
Terrified testosterone
But why do we still face the music?

If you see me walking in the garden
Don't ever ask me...

Now and then you get the strangest notion
That there's something missing
But it keeps you guessing
Wild ambition can you really blame us?
Can you entertain us?
Can you give a little more?

If you see me walking in the garden
Don't ever ask me for an autograph
If you ever catch me in the arcade
Don't even stop me for a photograph

We are undergoing treatment
But will the doctors ever cure
These delusions of grandeur?

Тексты песен альбома Pop Trash (2000)


Someone Else Not Me

Now while the beat is slow
Here in your arms I sway
Now that the light is low
Something I want to say
I guess you've known it for a while
But I mean trouble
I only want to see you smile
And I burst this bubble
The hardest thing is to let go

When love is real...
Like a flower loves a bee
But I know you're meant to give yourself to someone else
Not me

And I could carry on with you
Does that sound crazy?
I think you feel the same way too
And you can't face it
The hardest thing is to let go

But it's not defeat
When you set somebody free
And I know you're meant to be yourself with someone else
Not me

Can you let go?
'Cause that's love that's real
Like a flower loves a bee
And you know you're meant to give yourself to someone else
Not me

Somebody else not me
Meant for somebody else not me
Somebody else not me


Lava Lamp

In the half light of the evening
I can almost see you glow
Can tell by the way you're moving
Time may be right to let you know
You got many coloured halo,
The body of Venus, a babe rainbow
And if I come any closer I might fall into your silhouette
But the shape of things to come is constantly changing
So let it, so let it, so let it flow

La la la la lava lamp
La la la la lava lamp

Indigo, violet and blue
Can we meet where the edges blur?
Because I am coming at you
Like a bug eye heading for the burn
Truth is I can't stay away
No, I wanna let you light my volcano
And maybe it's just in my imagination
But you never know
Because the shape of things to come is constantly changing
So let it, so let it, so let it flow

La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)
La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)

La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)
La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)

So let it, so let it, so let it...
La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)
La la la la lava lamp (I'd love to turn you on)


Playing With Uranium

In for an evening
Of light entertainment
And who would believe you
Could worry the neighbours?
Come on over to my place
Playing with uranium
If it blows up in your face
See you on the other side
Come on over to my place

Playing with uranium
Reinvent the human race
You just got the invitation

We go undiscovered
'Cause people are careless
One way or another
They'll never forget us

Come on over to my place
Playing with uranium
And if it blows up in your face
See you on the other side
Come on over to my place
Never be the same again
Reinvent the human race
You just got the invitation

Playing with uranium
Playing with uranium
Never be the same again
Because we're playing with uranium


Hallucinating Elvis

(I was hallucinating, I was hallucinating)

I was hallucinating Elvis
Hawaii to Las Vegas
Special treatment all the way
Hallucinating Elvis
Missing 18 hours
Losing oxygen to the brain

Lying on the floor
There's a limit how much more I can take
Rhinestone inside my shoe
Because I'm turning into you

I was hallucinating, I was hallucinating, I was hallucinating...Elvis

FBI tapping the King's phone
74, he's trapped in his home
Hidden cameras, 2-way mirror walls
Walkie-talkie, kung-fu
Then the president calls

I was hallucinating Elvis
Hawaii to Las Vegas
Special treatment all the way
Hallucinating Elvis
Missing 18 hours
Losing oxygen to the brain

Whoever has to know
Tune in to my show
What you see ain't what you get
I'm shooting movies and the TV set...

Elvis, Elvis, Elvis, Elvis

I was hallucinating Elvis
Hawaii to Las Vegas
Special treatment all the way
Hallucinating Elvis
Missing 18 hours
Losing oxygen to the brain

I was hallucinating, I was hallucinating, I was hallucinating...Elvis
Elvis, Elvis, Elvis, Elvis

Hallucinating, hallucinating, hallucinating


Starting To Remember

How to begin do I shed a skin?
Now that I am starting to remember
It takes a while
But you find a way to open up the door
Let demons walk
Now that I am starting to remember
Can't change my world

I was happy ever after
Was it only yesterday?
That I bought the dream?
But I don't sleep no more
Counting the hours
'Til the dawn

Now that I am starting to remember
How to love
How to learn draw like a child
Run for miles and miles
Now that I am starting to remember
Who I am
Another lonely night ahead for me now
Buried in the darkening day
That lingers on
And drags me down
But you've got to believe
Time will heal.


Pop Trash Movie

Saw a close up of your pretty face
Overnight sensation
Smiling for cameras
From all around the world
If I rewind back to yesterday
And stop the tape there
No one knew who you were
But now they're at your door

I'm living in a pop trash movie
We star together in every scene
We'll all be famous for just a few minutes
Part of a celluloid dream

Watching slow-mo going frame-by-frame
Might have blurred my vision
Your life went flashing by
Where did it all go wrong?

I'm living in a pop trash movie
We star together in every scene
We'll all be famous for fifteen minutes
Part of a celluloid dream

I'll wait in the wings for you
I'll read your lines to you
But now the script is final you know, it's time to go
So we'll have to say goodbye

I'm living in a pop trash movie
We star together in every scene
We'll all be famous for those fifteen minutes
Part of a celluloid dream
We star in every scene
And it's never quite what it seems

(Never)

I'm living in a pop trash movie
I know we'll make it with that pop trash - yeah
We'll all be famous for those fifteen minutes
Part of a celluloid dream, yeah

Lady Xanax

Here comes the morning light you can't face
Lie on your bed staring into space
Watch the time slip gently by
Don't ask why

So many friends but nobody calls
Can't be alone when the darkness falls
Got to make it to the party
Socialise, break the ice

Oh, Lady Xanax where were you last night?
All the cracks in your make-up are starting to show
Don't think that you realise how far away you go now
Look into the future and don't be afraid...afraid
Of what is on your mind

There, in the emptiness deep inside
You are the one that's been left behind
So you paint with your mascara
Social eyes, don't look twice

Oh, Lady Xanax where were you last night?
All the cracks in your make-up are starting to show
Don't think that you realise how far away you go now
Look into the future and don't be afraid...afraid

Lady Xanax, you're out tonight
Lady Xanax, you're, oh, so tired
Lady Xanax, sleep well tonight

Lady Xanax (Lady Xanax)


The Sun Doesn't Shine Forever

At the end of the rainbow
Found each other there
Strange, we never thought the colours would fade
Be easy to walk
But it's much harder to stay
Why, oh why, are we reckless today?

You and I
Got to hold on together
Because in this life
Maybe the sun doesn't shine forever

Could say that I'm sorry
But there's no one to blame
Anger seems to dissolve into tears
Been so many good times
Not only despair
Somehow we'll find the love we can share

You and I
Got to hold on together
Because in this life
Maybe the sun doesn't shine forever

You and I
Make this life for each other
Because I believe
We've got enough for when the sun doesn't shine
You and I
Got to hold on together
Because in this life
Maybe the sun doesn't shine forever


Last Day On Earth

Mesmerised
You get sucked in by the hype
Headlights in your eyes

Flame burns fast
Then your soul goes up in smoke
Where's your faith in life?

Now what would you do
If there was no tomorrow?
And where would you go
If you knew this was your last day on Earth?

Having the time of your life
But you don't realise

Play to win
So you got to roll the dice
It's a vicious game

One false move
That's how fortunes change
And you're going down

Now what would you do
If there was no tomorrow?
And where would you go
If you knew this was your last day on Earth?

This is the time of your life
But you don't realise

Now what would you do
If you knew this was your last day on Earth?

I'd kiss you goodbye

Last chance, living, taking, giving, having,
Losing, needing, loving, waking, standing,
Hoping, dreaming, smiling, laughing, feeling,
Crying, wanting something, touching, living:.

Your last day on Earth

Тексты песен альбома Astronaut (2004)


(Reach Up For The) Sunrise

Now the time has come
The music's between us
Though the night seems young
Is at an end
Only change will bring
You out of the darkness
In this moment everything is born again

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Now the fireball burns
We go round together
As the planet turns into the light
Something more than dreams to
Watch out for each other
Coz we know what it means to be alive

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Feel the new day enter your life
Feel the new day

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life


Want You More!

You had plans all along
Musta seen me coming down a mile above the ground
Coz I am weak where you are strong
It's a thrill that makes me curious
Whatever I'm thinking of
You always seem to know
Coz nothing is good enough
There's always something to keep me guessing
What if it's real, what if you're just faking?
What if you knew you could?
What if you get off on manipulating?
Why does it feel so good?
Drivin' the car turn up the sound
Gets yer head in a hailstorm, man I'm gonna feel the blast
I pick you up - you throw me down
And it only gets more serious
What could you be thinking of?
You never let it show
Coz you give me just enough
There's always something
You keep it coming
What if it's real,what if your just faking?
What if you knew you could?
What if you get off on manipulating?
Why does it feel so good?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you? Why do I feel so torn?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you?
Why do I want you more?
What could you be thinking of?
You never let it show
Coz you give me just enough
There's always something, you keep me coming
Just keep it coming
What if it's real, what if you're just faking?
What if you knew you could?
What if you get off on manipluating?
Why does it feel so good?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you?
Why do I feel so torn?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you? Why do I want you more?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you? Why do I want you more?
Why do I want you more? Why do I want you? Why do I want you more?


What Happens Tomorrow

[Verse One:]
Child, don't you worry
It's enough you're growing up in such a hurry
Brings you down, the news they sell you
To put in your mind that all mankind is a failure

But nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow
We try not to show how frightened we are
If you let me - I'll protect you - however I can
You've got to believe it'll be alright in the end
You've got to believe it'll be alright again

[Verse Two:]
Fighting because we're so close
There are times we punish those who we need the most
Though we can't wait for a saviour
Only got ourselves to blame for this behaviour

And nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow
We try not to show how frightened we are
It would seem lonely - if you were the only - star in the night?
You've got to believe it'll be alright in the end
You've got to believe it'll be alright again

And nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow
So don't let go, now we've come this far
Hold my hand please, understand me - we're never alone

We've got to believe it'll be alright in the end
(Nobody knows)
You've got to believe it'll be alright my friend
(Nobody knows)
And yes we believe it'll be alright again


Astronaut

Makes my hair stand up on end,
Something alien happening,
Sychronize but don't comprehend,
'Cause where I stop that's where you begin!

Another moment I commit,
A pleasure as I'm gonna' take the hit,
And I'm addicted to the state you're in,
'Cause you're getting me out of it!

Wasted, there's nothing gonna ace this,
And were gonna go to space it,
'Cause I'm leaving with an astronaut!

Groovin' out to X-ray specs,
Something tells me your the alien sex,
I can't imagine now what comes next,
When this astronaut connects!

Coming on when I touch your skin,
A kinda' strange light you emit,
I hear you're gravity pull me in,
Now your getting me out of it!

Wasted, there's nothing gonna ace this,
And were gonna go to space it,
'Cause I'm leaving with an astronaut!

There, feat for quantum leap,
Because space is hot and deep,
And we follow giant footprints,
As we fall in, falling like the twins,
Through Saturn's holy rings,
And if they can't hold us, where it's gonna end up,
Anybody knows


Bedroom Toys

I been around the world
I seen a lot of things
That make your chicken curl
You're squeezing like boys and teasing like girls
Confusing like boys and girls
Plan an exit route... parachute... rubber suit
Are you ready for a little swim
There's regular... queen size... flip it on the b side... solid gold

Oh my God what's this?

I saw the bedroom toys
Now I'm stalling
I can't believe my eyes
I saw the bedroom toys
Now I'm crawling
I learn to improvise

Checking out the five star atmosphere
You want some expertise
If you got treasure, I'll pay you for the pleasure
It'll bring you to your knees
Silicone romance, what's your name fancypants?
Got your eye on the employees
Forget about the reeling, talk about the feeling
Solid Gold

You want it... you got it... now what you gonna do with it?

Now you washed up, beat smashing, grab no receipt takes the platinum off your shine
Lazy bed star, la di da, petty bourgeois
Oh my would you look at the time
Until you wise up, you know we're gonna line up
The pimps and snitches to dip into your riches
If you can't destroy it, you might as well enjoy it


Nice

Take the beautiful sting of a Scorpio
A careless smile and it begins to snow
And it hurts me to think
That you might never know
That I've got this thing about you

In case you don't understand
There's something else I meant to tell you

There is nothing better
Than being with you
And I'm feeling so nice
There is nowhere better
Than here with you
And it's feeling so nice

Staying up with the moon
And walking home in the rain
Mixed with your perfume
And never twice the same
I got a lot to lose
But everything to gain
When I really think about it

You haven't got a clue
It's all that I can do to hide it

There is nothing better
Than being with you
And I'm feeling so nice
There is nowhere better
Than here with you
And it's feeling so nice

Did I already say
'Cause you make me forget
I might as well be brave and tell 'ya

And it hurts me to think that
You might never know
Will it hurt as much being true?
I might as well be brave and tell 'ya

Yeah I'm feeling
And it's feeling so nice


Taste The Summer

Doo doo doo doobeedoo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doobeedoo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doobeedoo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo
(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)

Can you, can you taste the summer?
I do, I find it in your mouth

Now if I have a weakness it's for sweetness
And it's... floating on your breath, the sweetest melody

Doo doo doo doobeedoo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo
(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)

Sure we can make it till the evenings
Cool haze is reflected off your thighs

Long days are coming up and staying up and playing
Music of the falling stars, a melody (melody...)

Doo doo doo doobeedoo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo
(Taste the summer, you can taste the summer)


Finest Hour

How does it feel out on the ice?
You speak to the crowd but nobody hears
It's not a dream and you are no Christ
And you're not alone come in from the fear

Gonna take it back
Take back the life that you wanna lead
Been under quiet attack
But now it's time for you and me
Gonna take it back
You've got to fight for what you believe
We're gonna make this stand
The finest hour that we see

When did our choice become erased?
Where is the violence in this crowd?
Now that our voice has been replaced
With a silence that screams out loud

Gonna take it back
Take back the life that you wanna lead
Been under quiet attack
But now it's time for you and me
Gonna take it back
You've got to fight for what you believe
We're gonna make this stand
The finest hour that we see

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Gonna take it back
Take back the life that you wanna lead
Been under quiet attack
But now it's time for you and me
Gonna take it back
You've got to fight for what you believe
We're gonna make this stand
The finest hour that we see

Yeah... The finest hour that we see
We're gonna make this stand
The Finest Hour that we see
Yeah -eah - eah -eah -eah


Chains

An hour since the sundown
The ghosts are creepin in
Are gathering around me
Like starlings in the wind

Dark shapes gather round

Voices like my brother's
Are whispering to me
But I don't know these others
Who want to set me free

Come home you're out of time

But the life cannot let go
It's a chain cuts across my soul
Anchoring in this world

I put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains

The door is standing open
But I'm too tired to be afraid
My whole life's in this moment
I've been fighting all the way

Just need a little more time

Cuz the life just can't let go
It's a chain cuts across my soul
Anchoring in this world

I put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains

Nah nah nah nah nah

I put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains

Chains... chains... chains...


One Of Those Days

Suddenly it all looks so familiar
Gone and wrecked it like I always do
Don't you know it?
Life is out to kill 'ya
But you still go getting on with it

Seen better times than right now
But I'm not running away
No nothing's gonna bring me down

It's just been one of those days
I'm not the only one

They can drag me to the gates of hell now
There's nothing left but I'm still hanging in
Not for me, ain't no final showdown
I'm too shattered to do anything

Seen better times than right now
But I'm not running away
'Cause nothing's going to bring me down

It's just been one of those days
I'm not the only one feeling this way
And I'm not sorry

I'm not the only one feeling this way
And I'm not sorry
Not running away


Point Of No Return

The random aspects of our lives
Come together once in a while
So blinding and decidedly
Naivety falls from our eyes
And we'll not regain
As we watch the tower falling down

Maybe things can change
Only if you want
Maybe things can change
Only if you want

You know, you know there's no avoiding
The lesson to be learned
The lesson to be learned
The point of no return
You say "What if?"
But can you live it?
It's all that we deserve
It's all that we deserve
The point of no return

Don't blame yourself
Don't blame me
But we're the ones
Who can feed the ground
So this poison tree, don't let it grow again
And from this glass and broken earth
There is a way that can be built
A better life for everyone

Maybe things can change
Only if you want
Maybe things can change
Only if you want


Still Breathing

Home, it's not brick or stone
Or comfort in the firelight,
Not in that sense anyway.
Dreams, if only I had known
But these things always seem
So much clearer at a distance.

I'm walking out of this town
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there.
I'd burn the place to the ground.
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there again.

Words only could break that ring
You know the words still sting
So much harder than the blows ever did.
Heart, though it's hot and violent
My head is cool and quiet
As the ashes that fall from the sky

I'm walking out of this town
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there.
I burn the place to the ground.
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there again.

Now, I know this shattered feeling,
Trampled but still breathing.

I'm just waiting for a good day
I'm walking out of this town
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there.
I've burn the place to the ground.
I'm never going back there,
I'm never going back there again.
Never going back there again,
I'm never going back there again

Тексты песен альбома Red Carpet Massacre (2007)


The Valley

These are days of hit and run
In the stream with everyone
Is a moment of our lives

On a wandering river
Going on together
Many journeys to arrive

I've been walking
Through the valley
Through the tall grass
And the shadows
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

Through the city
And the towers
Turning minutes
Into hours
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

When I think I'm being strong
And I lose direction
then a life starts looking mischievous
Finding revelation
Out of desperation
Always stretching time
But it's never long enough

You think you're happy
Think you're free
But maybe we're just
Comfortably dizzy

I've been running
Through the valley
Through the tall grass
And the shadows
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

Through the city
And the towers
Turning minutes
Into hours
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

I've been running
Through the valley
Through the tall grass
Through the shadows
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

Through the city
And the towers
Turning minutes
Into hours
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it


Red Carpet Massacre

Dark sun rose on the ridge cut clear across the sky
As good a day as any to die
No reservation madam
No reason to know why
Running late stiletto heels
Try to loosen up the wheels

You spend your life in preparation for this day
Breathe in the air; it's loaded with fame
Check out those weapons sister before you hit the fray
String of pearls meet bits of gems
Enter the battle of the lenses

Red carpet massacre
Don't want to hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Deathstalk papparazzi yeah
Red carpet massacre
It's going to mess with you
We're in business
You're on the hit list

There's not so many now still standing on their feet
Their knives are out and singing so sweet
Engage with sharper minds that cut you when you meet
Anyplace to mess around
When someone wants to take you down

Maybe you think you're above this
But baby we know that you love it
Baby you know where to shove it
Apply your lipstick
'Fore dying in public

Red carpet massacre
Don't want to hassle you
Red carpet massacre
Deathstalk papparazzi yeah
Red carpet massacre
Don't want to mess with you
Now it's time
Next in line
We're so busted
Done and dusted


Nite-Runner

You're nocturnal
Only come out at night
And I'm learning
All the ways you want to ride

Cuz you're on the roam
But not until the darkness arrives
And I'm certain
I'll catch up to you one of these times, baby
Oh

Can I get my hands on you tonight
(I must be feeling something)
Some thing tells me I'm in for a ride
(I wonder if you see me coming)
Can I put my hands on you tonight
(One night has got me running)
Something tells me I'm in for a ride
(Right into your nighttime world cuz I'm a)

Nite Runner
I think I'm falling for you
Nite Runner
You got a style that put me under
Nite Runner
What you gonna do with it now
Nite Runner
Nite, nite runner

Light scatters
When you walk into the room
Under shadow
I can feel the heat in you
Should I be surprised
I see the possibility
Moving right across to me
And it all matters
When I'm getting close to you, hey yeah
Uh huh

Can I get my hands on you tonight
(I must be feeling something)
Something tells me I'm in for a ride
(I wonder if you see me coming)
Can I put my hands on you tonight
(One night has got me running)
Something tells me I'm in for a ride
(Right into your nighttime world cuz I'm a)

Nite Runner
I think I'm falling for you
Nite Runner
You got a spell that puts me under
Nite Runner
What you gonna do with it now
Nite Runner
Nite, nite runner

Love is haunting
She wanted to go
That's what she told me
Love is haunting
She wanted to go
But I can't, can't

Nite Runner
I think I'm falling for you
Nite Runner
You got a spell that put me under
Nite Runner
What you gonna do with it now
Nite Runner
Nite, nite runner

Nite Runner
I think I'm falling for you
Nite Runner
You got a spell that puts me under
Nite Runner
What you gonna do with it now
Nite Runner
Nite, nite runner


Falling Down

Once was a man who consumed his place and time
He thought nothing could touch him
But here and now it's a different storyline
Like the straw he is clutching

Why has the sky turned grey
Hard to my face and cold on my shoulder
And why has my life gone astray
Scarred by disgrace, I know that it's over

Because I'm falling down
With people standing round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time
Could I find someone out there to help me?

Howl at the wind rushing past my lonely head
Caught inside it's own motion
How I wish it was somebody else instead

Howling at all this corrosion

Why did the luck run dry
Laugh in my face, so pleased to desert me
Why do the cruel barbs fly?
Now when disgrace can no longer hurt me

Because I'm falling down
With people standing round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time
Could I find someone out there to help me?

Because I'm falling down
With people standing round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time
Could I find someone out there to help me?

Because I'm falling down
With people standing round
But before I hit the ground
Is there time
Could I find someone out there to help me?
I don't know… Why…


Box Full o' Honey

Box full o' honey
At the sharp end of the view
The edge of me and you
And all good sense had tread no further
And as the ghost will shiver trees
How I'm trembling on my knees
But I'm still drawn on by the murmur

Are you laughing at me now
In my circumstance
When still I wear I your crown
My life's penitence
And for what
What's so funny
A box full o honey

What I thought a pretty tune
Was howling at the moon
To keep me company this evening
It's so lonely in the dirt
A scratching at the hurt
But I so generously did leave you

Are you laughing at me now
In my circumstance
When still I wear I your crown
Some cruel penitence
for what
What's so funny
Box full o honey

Is she flirting with me now
Ohh
Is she dallying with me now
Ohh
ohhh
Are you flirting with me now
You'll always be my queen of tumble down
Miss melancholy

Are you laughing at me now
In my circumstance
When still I wear I your crown
And my life's a penitence
And for what
What's so funny
Ain't it funny
A box full o honey


Skin Divers

Walking under skies
Waiting for the fall
Meet me at the cornershop I'll show you it all
Free you of your mind
Something you wont find
In the west-end pages with your google dirty fingers

It's a skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It's a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Dip into the water

[Rap:]
Baby, that's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air

Wipe us of the face
Of the human race
Whichever way you look it's indisposed or disgraced
Fighting on the shore
The hoi polloi want more
Howling bloody murder but it's nothing just a murmur

In your skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It's a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Slip into the water

[Rap:]
Baby....that's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air

A blushing rose is torn
From these sugar walls
I've misplaced my future could I please borrow yours?
Panic on the scene
You know what I mean
Anything you want to be the only thing you want from me

Is skin dive
In deep silence we are
Going underwater
It's a lifeline
Teardrop, bullets, all night
Go inside the water

[Rap:]
Babygirl you're swimming
A little too deep
So deep....that I think you might hit a reef
I think you low on oxygen
And you're too glad to leave
Babygirl swim to the top
Grab my hand and hold me and breathe

Baby....that's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air
That's what it feels like when you come up for air
When you come up for air
You feel brand new
When you come up for air
When you come up for air


Tempted

Jupiter risin'
through the floor
You require a little bit more
To excite
You will go
Gettin' busy
On the floor

All about the way ya move it
When you really got to prove it
Finally, you will know
What it is you're turnin' on

Night is gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
Like you know it's meant to
Oh yeah
Devil's gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
How much do you want to
Oh, oh

Get back to London
Comin' undone
When you ride the underground
Sonic Island
Breakin' silence
got your body started now

And you love the way you're moving
When you really got to prove it
Finally

It's what you do
What it is you're turning on

Night is gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
Like you know it's meant to
Oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
How much do you want to
Oh, oh

Night is gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
Like you know it's meant to
Oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you
Oh yeah
Devil gonna tempt you
Oh yeah

If you want to know
Oh yeah
Do you want to know
Oh yeah
What it is you're turning on
What it is you're turning on

If you want to know
What it is you're turning on
Do you want to know
What it is you're turning on


Tricked Out

(Instrumental)


Zoom In

Zooming in
Stood on the line
You understand
I've been waiting forever
Come rain come shine
In the wind in the snow
In the filty weather
You've got it all worked out
Ya but it knocks you out
But I'm zooming in

Now she arrives
In a flaming crash
Like a falling star
Heading straight for the dive
Gonna make some cash
With the avatar

You got it all worked out
I know you know
I don't want you to go
Ya but it knocks you out
I'm zooming in on you on you

Don't look back you're a heart attack
You've got it all worked out
Ya but it knocks you out

We're not alone
In the 2nd life
There are millions like us
Right here
In the stones
In the air too bright
All the new insiders

You've got it all worked out
I know you know
I don't want you to go
Ya but it knocks you out
I'm zooming in on you on you

Na na na na na na
I know you know
I don't want you to go
Na na na na na na
I'm zooming in and out on you


She's Too Much

She's gentle to the touch
She's everything head first
So happy to be causing trouble

Sometimes
The pressure gets too much
And you think she's going to burst
And shatter like a Christmas bubble

I'll be there when the world is
coming down upon her
When she's scared, I'll be there
Fighting in her corner

She cries when she's alone
For all life's little knocks
Everything is supposed to make us tougher
Thinking is doesn't really show
But I know how she hurts
And I can't bare to see her suffer

I'll be there when the world is
coming down upon her
When she's scared, I'll be there
Fighting in her corner
I'll be there when the world
is closing to surround her
In the air as she falls with my arms around her

Holding on I'm looking out for
Her thin skin
Because she's everything
and I don't think she knows

She's such a gentle touch
She's too much a gentle touch
She likes to catch the sun
Plays with it like a ball
And never mind whatever keeps it burning
Someday, she might just be the one
Whose going to save us all
If this apocalipse is coming

I'll be there when the world is
coming down upon her
When she's scared, I'll be there
Fighting in her corner
I'll be there when the world
is closing to surround her
In the air as she falls with my arms around her

Holding on I'm looking out for
Her thin skin
Because she's everything
and I don't think she knows

I don't think she knows
I don't think she knows
(she's too much)
I don't think she knows
(she's too much) a gentle touch


Dirty Great Monster

There's a dirty great monster
In this house
We pretend it's not there
And there's no escape
From It's grip
But nobody seems to care
Do you ever wonder
About the days
When we were straight
But daddy got the hunger
So much to hide
We learn to lie

So watch yourself
In the hall
Where you're not supposed to know
Cuz we're all afraid of each other
We're the victim's in this show

Well Do you ever wonder
About the days
When we were straight
when daddy got the hunger
too much to hide
We learn to lie
Silently out numbered
We made mistakes
When we were straight
Now we're all going under

Oh oh

So with a sigh we say good bye


Last Man Standing

Now an unexpected peace comes to the day
As the howling dimmed the fighting dies away
when the hanging dust is clearing from the air
you can just make out a lonely figure there

He's the last man standing on the track
He does not look down
He does not look back
He's the last man standing on the track
You can't hold him down
You can't hold him back

He's the last man standing on the track
He does not look down
He does not look back
He's the last man standing on the track
You can't hold him down
You can't hold him back

he's sorry for the wrong he has done
And he cries out for the anger for so long
All the cuts and bruises suffered
In whose name
oh but now is not the time to face his shame

He's the last man standing on the track
He does not look down
He does not look back
He's the last man standing on the track
You can't hold him down
You can't hold him back

the last man standing on the track
He does not look down
He does not look back
He's the last man standing on the track
You can't hold him down
You can't hold him back

He's the last man standing
Last man standing
He's the last man standing
