borderline.

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.

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.

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.

programs for plunder.

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.


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.
