Track Name: Gasping For Air
So far from heaven
Digging for gold
You search forever
That’s all you know
Over the border
A sudden rain
Cruel weather
To set you straight

And the night falls down
Gasping for air
God help you now

You seen them all
You seen the guns
You seen them cry just like everyone
A golden temple
A pious face
They started moving
You start to shake

As the night falls down
Gasping for air
In the crowd

Someone to praise
Piss in the wind
Fools everyone
Waiting for the day

As the night falls down
Gasping for air
Through the crowd
Track Name: Flaming Cannonball
Like a flaming cannonball
Rolling straight into your town
Folks are staring at the screen they don’t know what’s coming down
Lot of things you’ll never know, happens everyday
Lot of pretty people trying to get out of the way

Here it comes
Ooh here it comes

Like a flaming cannonball
Rolling ‘round and ‘round my head
Wish I’d never seen the lines circling overhead
You can’t tell the truth no more, can’t tell it from a lie
Never mind, close your eyes, tell me that I’m blind

Here it comes
Ooh here it comes

Like a flaming cannonball
It’s coming back again
I look down and then I see that the ground just isn’t there
Should have seen the dark skies, should have seen it come
Humankind is out of time, guess you better run

Here she comes
Ooh here she comes
Track Name: Blue Is The Night
Need something
Aint no lie
Need somebody
Hold her tight
Moonlit night
Morning rain
Fires burning
Calling out your name

I’m on the line
Blue is the night

Say you’ve made it on the vines
Gypsy rider, movie eyes
But they’re pulling you away
Take your brains out
Throw them in the lake

I wonder why
Blue is the night

Out there looking for a saviour
Pennies falling from their eyes
Dressed in fading rags and running
A lonely mile
Blue is the night

Blue is the night

I’m on fire
Blue is the night

All the flowers that you bring
They’re all standing there in line
There’s not even time for giving
And love is never blind
Blue is the night

It aint no lie
Blue is the night
Track Name: Are You Paranoid?
Fire in their veins – fire in the air
Someone got it bad, someone else is dead
Nothing you can do, nowhere left to run
Taking on the world, you take on everyone

And so much time is slipping by
Out of the corner of your eye

Shiver, shake
Get ready for the fray, it’s war
Twitch, break
Soldiers at the gate, it’s war

Assassin in the hall, a killer in your name
Bottles on the wall burst into flame
The clones are drawing near, seething twisted rage
Everything you knew, blow it all away

And so much time is slipping by
Out of the corner of your eye

Shiver, shake
Get ready for the fray, it’s war
Twitch, break
Newsmen at the gate, it’s war
Quake, ache
Run home if you’re sane, it’s war
Everybody ready
Are you paranoid?

And they're marching on your street
And they're cloaked from head to feet
Et je suis......
Je suis.........
Shhh....
Track Name: Space
Out of the light
A foolish wind
Playing with lives
No one, no one can win

Standing on the boardwalk
With your eyes staring into space
Searching for life
In your bullet proof bed

All the violence won’t get you
Bloodied walls but no one breaks you yeah

Out of the night
Soldiers coming up for air
Stumbling blind
Try to make the wheels go ‘round

Standing on the corner
With your hands tied
Pressed against the wall
Strung up and wired
In a nameless war

I will try to forget you
Muddy walls and try to break through
Track Name: Dead Mans Bones
Up on the hill
Where the dreamers meet
Something bright
It’s painted on the wind
The galleons of war
that turn up in your port
Walking a dead man’s bones

A million fires ablaze like nothing that you’ve ever dreamed
Drifting through a wasteland like a gypsy in the rain
You look up to the stars through a misty oily haze
There’s just nothing left to fall

Oh lord, just let me be
Don’t want nothing much, roaming free
Oh lord, just let me breathe
The sun is sinking low
And it’s falling like a stone
Dragging a dead mans bones

I stumble along the edge
Trying to find my feet
Man walks up and tells me you only get what they don’t need
Lovers softly sing
A lot of ‘em just grin
Dragging a dead mans bones

Oh lord, just let me be
Don’t want nothing but roaming free
Oh lord, just let me breathe
The sun is sinking low
And it’s falling like a stone
Dragging a dead mans bones
Track Name: Thought Machine
Pinned to the screen
With a loaded gun
You fly forbidden skies
Into the heart of the sun
You have to learn to hold yourself
You have to learn to fight
For they know your every thought
They know the things you like

It won’t be long
Though you dream of better times
You won’t come down again
The thought machine grips you and…
And chains your heart and twists your words
Until you just give in
And you’ll never speak your mind again
The script is made - accept

Drifting forever
Slipping through time
Watch your mind
Wash your mind
Track Name: Digital People
We’ll slip away in the night
Like a firefly
Scared but beguiled
By the wings of time
Wasting away

Down on the shore
In the sand
In the violent sun
A crowd has gathered to tell everyone
I watch them fade

Oh this digital life
Bending the light
These digital people
Losing their minds
Am I still alive?

Who are you there
In the deep grey dusk
Taking photographs
Of your hard face
Pulling away
From the world

I put down my machine
And count the rain
The cold earth claims
And the skies tender claws
Rip out my brains

Oh this digital life
Bending the light
These digital people
Hurry on by
Am I still alive?

Oh this digital life
Bending the light
These digital people
Shuffling by
Are you still alive?
