Track Name: Bring the Fear On
BRING THE FEAR ON

I wrote my name across your face
I wrote my songs in this dark place
now there's no problem there's no fear
we've got to move far away from here
I never felt like we could change
but something strange got in your vein
there's no problem any more
it's just like love that's gone before
oh no, this is no place for us
out of space for us
out of time for us
out of reach for us
bring the fear on, bring it nearer
I can't hear you any clearer.
Track Name: Power Failure
POWER FAILURE

I am a power failure, I am a perfect stranger
I am in moral danger, I am a crashed computer
I am a wayward shooter, I am a broken speaker
I am a hide and seeker, I hide behind your curtain
I am a splitting atom, feel my heart of darkness
somtimes you just can't fathom
it's not my soul your kissing, 45 components missing
growing up and turning random, tuning out all hope abandoned
something in reaction is changing every reason and trashing up my feelings
silver chain reactions pull me to the ceiling
I sometimes say the weirdest things
I've got to get the drug now that will help me,
somehow, lose the feeling in my bones I'm the only telephone
and I'm a lonely telephone, asleep and packed in styrofoam
why don't you take the time to come and reconnect me to the sun
alleluia, praise god, euphoria
it comes from ecstasy, it may come from L.S.D.
and there is all the help I need
I'd ask my ego to hang on,
I could be a stargazer but I'm just a power failure.
Track Name: Radars and Crossed Wires
Radars and Crossed Wires © Anthony Holgate 2007

Chase the shiny pretty things, their fake tans run, in the sun. And string me out and turn me around. Your wireless candykisses, hit and miss. We almost did collide head on! You’re gorgeous, contagious and I have lost the will [to fight it anymore]. It’s easy, just dive in to juniper seas. You could be the one to wake up this fire; you must be the one to stir this desire. Yeah! Rewind, replay the scene; the one where we are UandME. Where we R UandME.

Watch the tv flicker, change the channel [click], we’re i2i. Girls on boys and boys on girls we are remote satellites, in radars and crossed wires our bodies WILL collide [and confide]. We swim, we FUCK in this channel of violent desire. My little alien, you’re a SENSATION, help is on the way; my little alien you’re an ADDICTION; ‘Bright Lights’ in the way. This generation? ALIENATION, takes its medicine. It’s YOU, tuning in. It’s you, tuning out….
Track Name: Illusion
Illusion © Jehanne Saaidah 2009

I couldn’t be more confused if I tried
So much desire, so much need
I’m standing on a middle ground
Waiting for you to meet me

I feel so weak, you look so strong
I long for you to hold me close
I ache, I am not whole
I want to hear you laugh and cry

I’m spinning around
In a mindful of dreams
I fall to the ground
I’m comin apart at the seams

I listen to the rumours and feel foolish
But I can’ seem to walk away
I’m held by an invisible cord
That neither you or I will stop and cut

So many questions, they will never be answered
So many things left unsaid
I never told you that I miss you
I never told you that I love you

I’m spinning around
In a mindful of dreams
I fall to the ground
I’m comin apart at the seams …

My illusions are all shattered
My mind is full of stutters
I feel naked and empty
I am all but just a child
Track Name: Electric Wave
ELECTRIC WAVE
and we're going on up, gonna mess it all up
gonna paint the world another colour tonight
and we're going on up, gonna burn it bright
gonna see the world under a laser light
electric waves of cathode rain
electric waves of cathode rain
and we're going on up, gonna set it all up
and we could feel the love in this place tonight
we are coming on up, you should've waved goodbye
reach into forever tonight
turn on your neon love light
turn on your neon love light
gonna push it all up, gonna push it too high
gonna drop the angels deep into your eyes
there are no more walls between you and I
so many suns rising in your sky
electric waves of cathode rain
electric waves of cathode rain
in the rain rain rain refrain
delays are coming again and again in waves
we ignite the symmetry, explode the energy
turned on by radio
turn on your neon love light
turn on your neon love light
out of the fire and into the euphoric
out of the fire and into the euphoric
after the chemical wave you gotta come down just a little way
and see things as they really are
but do it in your own way
now don't you see
don't you see the love in my eyes
dancing until the dawn is just a beginning
and nobody understands just where this will end
euphoria comes in flash and is gone in a moment
so take it while it lasts
and hold on to that feeling
and didn't you feel
didn't you feel the love in our eyes
now I could love you
I could love you forever.
Track Name: Thin Veneer of Joy
THIN VENEER OF JOY
Sleep in fits and bursts of light, voices talking in the night
Cracks appear in the sun and then the darkness comes
Levitation elevation
seeking skylights to escape
Dreams begin when I awake
Some are dark enough to break
Love is all I really want
when it comes I cannot see
when it goes I'm lost at sea
It's a thin veneer of joy, we walk on every day.
Track Name: Take Another Hit
Take Another Hit

Such a cynic in your slow burn tonight
You don’t have to like but can’t deny its might
Don’t slow down or else you won’t take flight
Just take the pill you know it won’t bite

You have to use and abuse to know what you might like
And then you take some more to explore just a little bit more
And if you can’t sit still then you go and knock on the door
Cause the space behind it, ooooh it’s gonna make you sore

So this is my lesson and you are my curse,
I won’t give in to temptation and I won’t have your thirst

Then you start to forget who you really are
Your morals go weak and you can’t even drive the car
You start to wonder how come you’ve gone so very far
In breaking things around you leaving scars

It seemed such a good idea to take another hit
It’ll put you right back to being on your feet
Self-control is the pulse that your finger can’t meet
So you close your eyes and saviour the last little bit.

So this is my lesson and you are my curse
I won’t give in to temptation and I won’t have your thirst
This is my confession baby, denial is SO rehearsed.
I won’t give in to temptation and I won’t have your thirst
Track Name: Tied to a Random Event
TIED TO A RANDOM EVENT

Hopeless beyond control
illumination falls like an angel
drops of water through your soul
a paintbox in a black hole
they're not really as black as we've been told
concentric discs of light keep turning around in my life
born in an accident black spot
best wishes from a lifetime of near misses
and from the pool of my digital wishing well
I got a message, got a message that god sent...
telling me don't speak too soon, don't live too old,
don't die too young, don't come undone
and then each day just came and went
and then each day just came and went
time slipped in and out of tense
while we were tied to a random event.
Track Name: All in Your Head
All in Your Head

You flick the switch, to turn me on, but I am not your light bulb.
You turn the key, to lock the door, but you cannot lock me away.
You stretch your fingers, into your gloves, but I am not precious ….
You forget, you can’t handle me, ‘cause I am far too dangerous
Woahhhhh woahhhhh

‘Cause you live in a place where the world is flat and you know it (know it know it)
And you live in a world that is all in your head and you know it (know it know it)
And you think it is safe ‘cause you’re in control no (no no)
But you think and you feel and you believe – who am I to tell you wrong?
Who am I to tell you wrong …?

Hidden thoughts and distressed notes, cannot hide your competence,
Your deep blue eyes, no your big grey eyes, who are you to me these days?
Put on your face and dress the place, for this is your big moment …
I’ll keep the key, I’ll walk away, I promise not to hurt your world.
Woahhhh woahhhhh

‘Cause you live in a place where the world is flat and you know it (know it know it)
And you live in a world that is all in your head and you know it (know it know it)
And you think it is safe ‘cause you’re in control no (no no)
But you think and you feel and you believe – who am I to tell you wrong?
Who am I to tell you wrong?
Who am I to tell you wrong?
Who am I to tell you wrong?

Be still your mind, deceive these thoughts (who am I to tell you wrong)


‘Cause you live in a place where the world is flat and you know it (know it know it)
And you live in a world that is all in your head and you know it (know it know it)
And you think it is safe ‘cause you’re in control no (no no)
‘Cause you live in a place where the world is flat and you know it (know it know it)
And you live in a world that is all in your head and you know it (know it know it)
And you think it is safe ‘cause you’re in control no (no no)
But you think and you feel and you believe – who am I to tell you wrong?
Who am I to tell you wrong?
Track Name: Rewind the Camera
REWIND THE CAMERA

If you can find a place to start then you can tear my walls apart, melting magnets in the dark and separation in our hearts, atom burning 'cross the sky, rumours crying in the wind
left me feeling like a child and all that matters in the end

rewind the camera to the starting gun
rewind the camera to the starting gun
how can you believe my pretty lies when I deceive you every night
a touch of madness in the sky, a touch of silver in my eyes
see me drinking iodine
traces shown on x-ray screens
through all this time I could not feel what was fake and what was real
rewind the camera to the starting gun
rewind the camera to the starting gun
and when the shutter falls
you are frozen in a moment
something you can never change
the feeling that you lost someone
rewind the camera to the starting gun
rewind the camera to the starting gun
Track Name: Hypnotise
Hypnotise

You hypnotise me
Can’t you see?
Your voice, your soul, your feel
You make me smile, you make me heal

Take comfort in my zone
Take comfort in the tone
Slip your mind away
And let the stars make you stray

You hypnotise me
Can’t you see?
No more loneliness
All the more happiness

Don’t let go
We’ll take it slow
Fold yourself into my high
No more searching of the skies

You hypnotise me
Can’t you see?
I’ll make you dream
I’ll make you scream

We’ll run away
To return another day
You hypnotise me
What more can I say
Track Name: Fix a Gun
FIX A GUN

When I call you up again will you shoot me down,
shoot me up, fix a gun, your tricks are fun, but
to pick me up again I need one better
in this box of electric shocks is where people come together
you still believe in paradise
used to believe in northern lights
you still believe in immaculate conception
protection keeps nothing from the soul
crash into the noise and turn me on plastic
crash into the noise and turn me on
I am the corrupter and one corrupted
preacher and perverted teacher not converted
computer of numerical love affairs in twelve bar
so wired I'm tired of all this stuff
count to ten, tell me when you think I've had enough
sex - without breeding
love - with no feeling
don't follow your heart, don't follow your head
where is my God, I'm so far gone, she said
you can say to me anything at all
protection keeps nothing from the soul.
