borderline. (sample only)
(featuring paul skillen - guitar)

look to the wall, we stand here in perfect form,
alike as we were, now we take different roles.

is this where my life has gone, help me, i'll learn,
is this where your knowledge comes from, let me alone.

and below, still return, as before, struggle on,
has control left the war, we will carry on.

i've taken the knife; i've taken the lines from your skin,
i've held out the blade, you size up the stranger within

is this where...

and below, still return, as before, struggle on,
has control left the war, we will carry on.

some aspects.
(featuring: the trumpet of jim short)

i've had enough of this, i can't go on,
i've had the light in my eyes; it's two onto one,
what you need is in your head, so tidy and so neat,
another attitude collapses at my feet.

i'm trying hard; i can't remember what you said,
i feel those eyes; they're burning deep into the back of my head.

wish i knew what's going on, you talk so strange,
i don't need your sympathy, you're thinking out of range,
you tell me nothing more, my ignorance is bliss,
intellect is touch and go, understanding, hit and miss.

i'm trying hard; i can't remember what you said,
i feel those eyes; they're burning deep into the back of my head.

your hands don't feel or touch; you're just skin and bone,
but i can feel an attitude; i know i'm not alone,
remains of hopes all fade, there's nothing left,
people give us promises but i see nothing yet.

i'm trying hard; i can't remember what you said,
i feel those eyes; they're burning deep into the back of my head.

excuses.

all these tributes to one man,
you didn't want to know him when he was alive.
now he's gone, everyone loves him,
you're not getting any nearer.

peace, unity, nothing gets any nearer,
one step forward, three steps backwards.
no-one listened to what he said,
no -one ever did anyway.

honour among thieves. (sample only)

click here to listen to this track

bring all your dreams to me; i'll always try my hardest.
i can bring riches beyond your wildest dreams.
i can cross the water just to make you feel at home there.
that's where you crawl round on your knees.

i steal from my friends but i never will feel guilty.
i've got to further my career.
and i don't care about commitments or appointments.
there's nothing for me around here.

don't look like that at me; i hate the way you're talking.
you shout abuse across the hall.
you scream for help as once again your brains divided.
i'll watch you crash into the wall.

five days.

click here to listen to this track

if you show me what you want it may not be that hard to find
but i won't smile when i look back because everybody looks behind.

i'm not here to make things easy; i'm not here to tell the truth,
re-arrange, is it hard to face, is it something strange, is it any use?

and the truth unfolds and it's just five days,
till your head explodes as your lesson's learned,
will you listen still as the buildings crack?
and the smiles all fade and it's all arranged.

i saw a million more go over the edge,
but i won't look 'round because i know what i'll find,
and you don't care which makes things worse,

so there's nothing for you, so you take what's mine,
and the truth unfolds...

back to basics.
(featuring: guitar & vocals - chan. keyboards - david b. morgan)

i don't know if i can get it all back, i'm not angry anymore,
there are things that you don't see and we're both to blame,
and i know i'll never see you again, because you tell too many lies,
and the feeling still remains that we're both to blame.

i thought i'd said enough to make you believe it,
i'm far away until i get it all back, cut loose.

let's get back to basics; it's not enough to let me be what you want.

you've got to keep this to yourself; i'll forget the things you said,
i've got a feeling that i made a mistake and you don't show me,
you never call me anymore and i wait for days and years,
and they're waking up all around and you don't show me.

i thought i'd said enough....

let's get back to basics; it's not enough to let me be what you want.

three intruders.

come heart to heart and don't agree with me now,
a given time comes later and never asks me how.
i cut my teeth on vicious fare and bend beneath the blows,
and hate i feel goes unsurpassed,
but that's the best that anyone knows.

come on and give me reasons to hate them more and more,
but you never will understand, just how the hate still grows.
an act of malice and the terror returns, to make the people stop and stare,
and still you sit and watch the buildings burn,
is that a man in there? is that a child in there?

programs for plunder. (sample only)

click here to listen to this track

music for the 21st century programs for plunder.
computer crime takes off, divorced from nature.
intercontinental subways.
giant airships, manipulation.
sex roles, multiplication.
naked to the stars, present at the creation.

friends.
(sample only)

i call your name but you keep on running,
tell me why do act so strange,
i've got to know what seems so funny,
you just keep playing games.

don't need just another explanation,
i thought i told you before,
i need friends but i don't have any,
at least not anymore.

my face burns with the way you're talking,
my eyes blur so i cannot see,
my old friends go to find another,
but nothing makes them come back to me.

i used to think the world was one big family,
but now i know the truth,
hate burns through the hearts of people,
and it's people like you.

look at the man with face, dark colour,
he's just the same as you,
look at the girl and the way she dresses,
she's no different from you.

people today don't seem to know what's needed,
look at the people you meet,
ignore the fools who laugh in they're faces,
don't fight them in the streets.

new life.

haven't had a new life for ages, wouldn't want one anyway.
you can help me turn the pages; see me through to another day.

i guess you think you're really something, o.k. you win!
i don't know if you're really nothing, is this the end?

i've found at last just what i needed, but it's not you.
now i've got some inspiration, it's something new.
