Song Lyrics:

Inside my own inner space
There’s not a soul in the whole place to see or ask me why
And with my senses in shreds
There I go to pick up the loose threads
Away from your hungry eyes

And in that infinite place
You’ll see a smile on my blank face
Becuase you can’t get there
It’s not just being alone
It’s more like a view that I’ve half known
From hills but I don’t know where

Imagination
Living mental isolation
Imagination
Imagination
Far from your contamination
Drifting in my inner space
Imagination

And when I look outside
There’s a world with nowhere to hide from the cold reality
I’ve chased innumerable friends
Filled my life with innumerable trends
But it didn’t make me see

Imagination
Living mental isolation
Imagination
Imagination
Far from your contamination
Drifting in my inner space
Imagination

But in the depth of a dream
Where the grass is always so green
And the sky is always blue
I’m escaping silently
I’m rejecting violently
This world for something new

Imagination
Living mental isolation
Imagination
Imagination
Far from your contamination
Drifting in my inner space
Imagination

Song Lyrics:

So when the thought police arrive
And you want to stay alive
You can tell them where I am
I’m just lazing in the sunlight

So if you hear the heavy sound
Of the buildings falling down
And the poeple running round
I’m just lazing in the sunlight

I’m just lazing in the sunlight

When I See You

Featured On:

Song Lyrics:

I’m watching the surf fall
I’m wishing you near me
There’s oceans between us
I’m packing my lifebelt

When I see you
I fall helplessly in love
When I see you
I drown slowly under waves of love

I’m tearing my heart out
I’ll give it to you
There’s mountains between us
I’m thinking of calling

When I see you
I fall helplessly in love
When I see you
I drown slowly under waves of love

I’m climbing a mountain
I’m swimming an ocean
I’m dying to see you
You’re killing me slowly

When I see you
I fall helplessly in love
When I see you
I drown slowly under waves of love

I’m climbing
I’m falling
I’m swimming
I’m drowning

Song Lyrics:

I’m feeling in a shaky frame of mind
The look on my face, this is like a new beginning
Believing if I get it wrong this time
Floating in space I’ll see the pieces spinning to the Ground

When I dreamt a careless dream
There was nothing there to stop me
Now I see it on a screen
Such a careless [] has shot me to the ground

On a screen I can see it now
A thousand pieces
I can see them falling down

Things We Never Did

Song Lyrics:

We would be ashes
We would be silent and old
We would be wisdom
We would be left in the cold

When we were dancing
I saw the look in your eye
Now we are strangers
Lost in a see full of sighs

We would be traitors
We would forget we were young
We would be helpless
We are the kingdom to come

Lost In a Moment

Featured On:

Epic Garden Music (1982)

Song Lyrics:

I worked my feelings out
I sing the words I’d like to shout
And it comes as no surprise
You’ve changed the rules again

We came here starry eyed
We went away dissatisfied
And it comes as no surprise
It comes as no surprise

I give my thoughts to you
Don’t ask for more
We’ve shared some moments
But that’s really all
And in my heart 
I fear you need much more

The sun won’t rearrange
A passion still resisting change
And I hope you realize
We’ve both been fooled the same
Your heart’s an open book
You’re too afraid to take a look
And I hope you realize
Yes I hope you realize

I give my thoughts to you
Don’t ask for more
We’ve shared some moments
But that’s really all
And in my heart 
I fear you need much more

We were lost in a moment
Maybe you didn’t notice

I give my thoughts to you
Don’t ask for more
We’ve shared some moments
But that’s really all
And in my heart 
I fear you need much more

My burning senses shout a melody too strong to doubt
And it comes as no surprise
You’ve missed the point again
We came here starry eyed
But now it seems those stars have died
And it comes as no surprise
Well it comes as no surprise

I give my thoughts to you
Don’t ask for more
We’ve shared some moments
But that’s really all
And in my heart 
I fear you need much more

Maybe you didn’t notice
We’ve lost it all

The Tightrope Touch

Featured On:

Epic Garden Music (1982)

Song Lyrics:

Lately I find I’ve been walking on tightropes
That stretch through my mind in the spaces I don’t know
I’ve walked and I’ve fallen
So many times I don’t notice now

Writing equations for solving the problems
there’s always an answer I hadn’t considered
Sometimes I just blindly
Knowing later I’ll count it wrong

And the rope I touch 
As I’m walking in a dream
Is a mystery to me
And it won’t take much
For the nightmare that I see
To become reality

And the rope I touch 
As I’m walking in a dream
Is a mystery to me
And it won’t take much
For the nightmare that I see
To become reality

Mountains I find in this fragile existence
I step by the side and I’m lost in the distance
I’ve walked and I’ve fallen so many times I don’t notice now

Lately I find I’ve been walking on tightropes
That stretch through my mind
I’ve walked and I’ve fallen so many times

And the rope I touch 
As I’m walking in a dream
Is a mystery to me
And it won’t take much
For the nightmare that I see
To become reality

And the rope I touch 
As I’m walking in a dream
Is a mystery to me
And it won’t take much
For the nightmare that I see
To become reality

Song Lyrics:

Dumb silence doesn’t pay
I’ve said three words again today
Each one just fell away
In lonely echoplay

And when the room is empty
Its subtle tricks protect me
There goes another day 
[incomplete]

Song Lyrics:

They’re marching down the street
With heavy boots upon their feet
I saw you in a doorway
You turned and walked away from me

I thought it was surprising
For friends to say goodbye that way
You looked at me in silence
And then you turned and walked away

And if we meet again someday
I know that you won’t be the same
When understanding is betrayed
Just walk away, just walk away

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Lope

Featured On:

Epic Garden Music (1982)

Song Lyrics:

Racing from my head forever 
Staring wildly as in like a feather blowing
Take me through an open window
Maybe we could play a part and not know we played it

They’re hanging like the hours
That move with hidden powers
Take me to a silken shadow
Maybe we could play a part and not know we played it

Cloud 9

Featured On:

Epic Garden Music (1982)

Song Lyrics:

This is cloud 9 driving me
And it won’t make much sense of what I see
When I’m rushing down the room
Or talking to a friend about the moon

So you don’t want to touch down
Abandon flight
When the system is shut down on cloud 9

I don’t get a reaction
I don’t get a reaction
Just another distraction on cloud 9

This is straight man calling you
And he knows why he’s straight and so do you
When they cut his body down
The planet crashed, the crew went underground

So you don’t want to touch down
Abandon flight
When the system is shut down on cloud 9

I don’t get a reaction
I don’t get a reaction
Just another distraction on cloud 9

Just another distraction
Just another distraction
Just another distraction on cloud 9

Song Lyrics:

Look out the window can you see the sky
What color is it can you see the light
And is it raining yet down in the street
And do you talk to everyone you meet

In the light you can disappear without a trace
In the night every shadow seems to burn your face

Sometimes you think that I can be your friend
But then you know I can’t go back again
And yes I’m sorry that I’ve come so far
But being caustic we forget we are

In the light you can disappear without a trace
In the night every shadow seems to burn your face

Pinned to a day
Striped Like a cage

Measured in sand

Cow Boys

Song Lyrics:

Cowboys don't love indians
Maybe they fight too well
They seem tough
But it's just a bluff
Somethings aren't hard to tell

And who is brave
And who is strong
You think you are
You could be wrong

We've talked now it's time to shout
Lets focus sides again
All views can't be reconciled
This compromise feels tame

And who is brave
And who is strong
You think you are
You could be wrong

Sometimes when the gates are closed
And lights go out inside
I wonder as the distance grows
At all the shades of right

And who is brave
And who is strong
You think you are
You could be wrong

Song Lyrics:

Each crisis forms one fold in time
Each fear distorts the subtle line
Of velvet thoughts we can't define
Our paths that crossed now drift apart

Only your name remains the same
Only your name

Moving closer we drift apart

Moving closer changing slowly we drift apart

Each crisis forms one fold in time
Each fear distorts the subtle lines
Of velvet thoughts we can't define
Our paths that crossed now drift apart

Feeding the Flame (1983)

Song Lyrics:

You whisper secrets for all to hear
Confusing open hearts and minds
With acid rumours printed clear
For those who listen with their eyes

Standing beside you i'd see your face
But every word you say escapes into air

Proclaiming widely the views you hold
While others through distance lapse untold
Your dull reflections printed bright
Beyond correction you still write

On Another Day

Featured On:

E-Mail From Eternity (1999),Feeding the Flame (1983)

Song Lyrics:

She traces neat escapes
In night skylines
Bowing out with style
Daylight seeps into her darkness
She'll watch a new moon smile
Then crawl away

On another day
You would swear my judgement was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

She'll swear some weak excuse
To gain more time
Changing sides like friends
To satisfy her quicksand ego
When life falls short again
She'll crawl away

Inside her father's house
She's free to stay
Challenge if you dare
Her mirror test of self deception
Replacements crowd the stairs
Rehearsed in praise

Sleep (Is For Everyone)

Featured On:

Song Lyrics:

Out of time again
Out of touch out of contact
With those around you
Out of time again
Painting the small print red to catch in your eye
Writing a warning to all those who fail this time
He watches us passing he opens the door
And counting he'll notice there should be one more

Make no mistake there's a welcome waiting for you now
Yes i'm late dear mr. Aitch
And it's so absurd i laugh out loud
Laugh out loud
Sleep is for everyone

Hearing a distant bell repeatedly ring
It calls for attention to your daily life routine
I'm asking no favours just five minutes more
Ringing the bell replies your plea has been ignored

A deadly scrape with Mr. Aitch
 

Vendetta

Featured On:

Feeding the Flame (1983)

Song Lyrics:

Turn with still haunted face
To the ghost in the water
Sentence dealt without trace
Silent rest in the water
Fears revolve round one theme
Smothered thoughts enter every dream
As cold hands stretch through the night
Their secret rests far from sight

I look up for the sky
Through the crowd on the pavement
Briefly draw passers by
Choose a cloud from the pavement
And though deceptively clean
No relief marks the final scene
As countless feet tread from sight
A stencilled shape chalked in white

Man of Straw

Featured On:

Feeding the Flame (1983),Total Sound (1986)

Song Lyrics:

Like confession whispered slowly
Hate's a word that's spoken softly
Horror fills his pretty scrapbook
A massacre won't change his outlook

Oh man of straw

Sheltered in his cut out life style
If time were small he'd be a sundial
Hope wrung dry with values static
'save me', he cries, 'from these fanatics'
Standing lonely trusting no one
In disarray with collar undone

Kicked again he counts his blessings
But with no brain he's always guessing
Standing lonely trusting no one
In disarray with collar undone
Like confession whispered slowly
Hate's a word that's spoken softly

Like confession whispered slowly
Hate's a word that's spoken softly
Standing lonely trusting no one
In disarray with collar undone
Horror fills his pretty scrapbook
But with no brain he's always guessing
