Track Name: The Darkness
THE DARKNESS

TIME WILL TELL
CAN WE MAKE IT THROUGH
LOVE EVERLASTING
OR JUST ANOTHER SHIP IN THE NIGHT
SOMETIMES I FEEL
I'M DRIFTING AWAY
STRANGE DISCONNECTION
THEN THE DARKNESS COMES OVER ME

THE LESS I GET
IS THE MORE I NEED
LOVE IS A MIRRORBALL
I'M BLINDED BY THE MULTIPLE REFLECTION
SOMETIMES I FEEL
I'M WASTING MY DAYS
STRANGE DISAFFECTION
THEN THE DARKNESS COMES OVER ME

LOW HANGING FRUIT APPLE TREE
GRAB IT IN YOUR FINGERS
TASTE THE FLESH BITE THE SHINY SKIN
FEEL THE POISON LINGER
RUNNING THROUGH MY BRAIN
I THINK I MUST BE INSANE

TIME WILL TELL
WILL WE MAKE IT THROUGH
ANIMAL ATTRACTION
OR JUST ANOTHER FLASH IN THE PAN
SOMETIMES I FEEL
YOU'RE DRIFTING AWAY
DO YOU REALLY NEED ME
THEN THE DARKNESS COMES OVER ME
DARKNESS COMING OVER ME
Track Name: Golden Boy
GOLDEN BOY
SEE HIM THERE
THE GOLDEN BOY
THROUGH HIS LIGHT YOU SEE YOUR OWN DARK SUN
LIFE IS EASY FOR THE GOLDEN BOY
WATCHING HIMSELF IN HIS REFLECTION

YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME BUT IF HE WERE HERE
YOU AND THE GOLDEN BOY ARE SURE TO GET IT ON
CLOSE YOUR EYES THINK ABOUT THE GOLDEN BOY
WARMING HIMSELF BENEATH HIS OWN SUN

BUT I HAVE SEEN INSIDE HIS GRAVE
AND ALL THE LOVE THAT HE NEVER MADE
PICTURE HIM LYING DEAD ON THE SHORE
STEALING THE SUNSET FROM DAYS CLOSING DOOR

I SAW YOU ENTWINED ON THE BALUSTRADE
YOU AND THE GOLDEN BOY
AFTER WITH A WINK OUR LOVE DID FADE
TELL ME DID YOU ENJOY HIM

BUT I HAVE SEEN THE CLAY BENEATH HIS FACE
AND THE SMILE YOU HIDE IN BEAUTY'S EMBRACE

PICTURE HIM LYING DEAD ON THE SHORE
STEALING THE SUNSET FROM DAY'S CLOSING DOOR

DON'T YOU HANG AROUND WITH THE GOLDEN BOY
YOUR EYES ARE TOO COMPLEX TO SHINE LIKE HIS SUN
BUT SOME TREASURES ARE BURIED DEEP
AND OTHERS ARE EASILY WON

AND I HAVE SEEN INSIDE HIS GRAVE
AND HOW SUFFERS THE SAME DECAY
PICTURE HIM LYING DEAD ON THE SHORE

STEALING THE SUNSET FROM DAY'S CLOSING DOOR
Track Name: Spandex Reflex
SPANDEX REFLEX

I DANCED ALL ALONE UNTIL I MET YOU
YOU WERE STANDING THERE
IN YOUR SPANDEX

IT HUGS YOUR THIGHS TIGHT YOUR ARSE LOOKS GOOD
WHEN YOU PUT IT ON
I LOVE YOUR SPANDEX

I DON'T KNOW YOUR NAME
I NEVER HEARD OF YOU
I JUST WANT YOU CLOSER IN YOUR
SYNTHETIC TROUSER

YOU SAY I'M LOSING IT BUT I DON'T THINK SO
IT'S BODY POLITICS
THIS IS SPANDEX

AND IF YOU SAY THAT IT MAKES MY BUM FLAT
LIKE I'M IN DIAPERS
WELL I LIKE THAT

YOU DON'T KNOW MY NAME
I NEVER HEARD OF ME
I KNOW YOU WANT ME CLOSER IN MY
SYNTHETIC TROUSER

MY GOD WHAT A TIGHT FIT
I GET MY KICKS/ THRILLs IN A SPANDEX REFLEX
OH NO GET OFF OF MY TITS
PERSONAL SPACE- SPANDEX REFLEX

I APPRECIATE THIS KIND ATTENTION
YOU CAN'T RESIST ME
ITS NATURAL GRAVITY

I'M DOING EVERYTHING TO IMPRESS YOU
I LET MY BODY TALK
THANKS TO SPANDEX

TELL ME WHAT'S YOUR NAME
I THINK I LIKE YOUR FACE
I CAN'T KEEP MY EYES OFF YOUR
SYNTHETIC TROUSER
Track Name: Hotel Avenir
TO SANDY FROM THE HOTEL AVENIR

THE CARPET'S WORN THIN AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
THOSE WHO'VE TROD THIS PATH BEFORE
BEYOND THE SHUTTERS THE 21ST CENTURY
WHILE TIME HANGS MOTIONLESS IN HERE

ROOMS FOR RENT BY THE HOUR THE WEEK
GUESTS (THEY CALL US GUESTS) BUT GIVE US PLASTIC SHEETS
THAT CRACKLE AS YOU TOSS IN SOME HAUNTED SLEEP
HOW DID WE END UP HERE….. AT THE HOTEL AVENIR

BUT YOU MADE IT THROUGH SANDY
YOU MARRIED A MILLIONAIRE
YOU MOVE IN THE HIGHEST CIRCLES
DRESSED IN CHRISTIAN DIOR

VOICES ARE HUSHED AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
FLIES DESCRIBE CIRCLES IN THE AIR
A BUBBLE RISES SLOWLY IN THE OPTIC AS A HAND
REACHES OUT FOR A DREAM THAT'S TRAPPED IN A GLASS
PHANTOMS WALK HERE AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
I'VE SEEN THEM THEY NOD
AS THEY PASS IN THE CORRIDOR
WALLS ARE SO THIN YOU CAN HEAR FINGERNAILS GROW
2 CMS A YEAR……AT THE HOTEL AVENIR

SAW YOUR FACE IN THE PAPER SANDY
CAUGHT WITH A HOLLYWOOD STAR
ON THE BACK SEAT IN A LAY-BY
I'M SURE IT WAS A LIE

TIME TO REFLECT AT THE HOTEL AVENIR
HOW THINGS DIDN'T WORK OUT HOW WE PLANNED
WE WERE GREAT TOGETHER SANDY I SHOULD HAVE STUCK WITH YOU
COULD YOU LEND ME A FEW QUID TO JUST SEE ME THROUGH?
ROOMS FOR RENT...

SO YOUR HUSBAND LEFT YOU SANDY
TOOK BACK THE SHINY CAR
YOUR BEST FRIEND'S NOW JACK DANIELS
AND THE KID'S BACK IN CARE
Track Name: I'm coming back
I'M COMING BACK
THEY LEFT ME HERE IN THE DESERT TO DIE
TOOK MY HORSE AND RAN
I SWEAR IF I EVER CATCH UP WITH THOSE GUYS
I'LL KILL THEM IF I CAN
I'M COMING BACK
I CRAWLED MY WAY ACROSS THE WASTE
BENEATH THE BURNING SUN
AND FOUND MY WAY TO THE NEAREST TOWN
WHERE I GOT IN TOUCH WITH MY LOVED ONES SAYING
I'M COMING BACK
TELL MY GIRLFRIEND I LOVE HER AND I'LL
NEVER LEAVE HER ALONE
TELL MY MOTHER I NEED HER AND I'LL
BE BACK HOME QUITE SOON COZ
I'M COMING BACK
NOW A BLACK HORSE PULLS A CARRIAGE
BENEATH THE BURNING SUN
AND A SIGHTLESS EYE THAT WILL NEVER SEE
A SUNSET THAT NEVER COMES
I'M COMING BACK
Track Name: Glittering heap
I've been to your planet- I have spent some time up there- all the crazy things you do, counting craters on the moon....
Track Name: radio interstellar love
outside the wind is 1000 miles an hour
but in the eye it's so still
see now, you now,
must stay awake don't take that sleeping pill
you'll miss the party at the end of the world

and all the people sang along
some out of tune and to a different song
this is the last broadcast from radio interstellar love
If you want hear some more from us
You'll have to give some more to us

we stood and watched the best sunset the world had seen
some cried for colours they dare not even dream
you now, know now
sometimes the end can be the best thing
the party at the end of the world is in full swing

and all the people sang along
some out of tune and to a different song
this is the last broadcast from radio interstellar love
Track Name: Cling to Him
CLING TO HIM
THE NIGHT IS DARK THE DAYS ARE LONG
CLING TO HIM
WHEN DID YOU LAST HOLD SOMEONE
CLING TO HIM

CLING TO HIM
YOUR GIANT BED'S A NO MAN'S LAND
YOU GAVE TO LOVE
IT GAVE YOU BACK AN EMPTY HAND
SO CLING TO HIM….

HOLD HIM TIGHT
SAVE HIM FROM THE BLINDING LIGHTS
THE FACELESS DOLLS
THAT BECKON HIM INTO THE NIGHT
ENTICING HIM
TO FEEL THE FLESH AND FILL THE GAP
THE EMPTINESS
THE BLACK HOLE OF THE UNIVERSE
CLING TO HIM

CLING TO HIM
WHEN NOONE ELSE HAS COME ALONG
CLING TO HIM
IF LUKE WARM LOVE IS BETTER THAN NONE
CLING TO HIM

THINK OF HIM
THE DAILY GRIND THAT DULLS THE BLADE
OUR SHALLOW FRIENDS THE SHOPPING SPREES THAT NUMB YOUR MIND
THINK OF HIM
DON'T LET HIM GO
YOU'VE GOT TO GET IT WHILE YOU CAN
PRINCE CHARMING'S GONE
HE SLIPPED AWAY LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT
AND TOOK FROM YOU SAID I HOPE WE CAN STILL BE FRIENDS
BUT ME I STUCK AROUND WHEN THINGS GOT TOUGH
AND YOU WERE LOW
SO CLING TO HIM
CLING TO SOMEONE
CLING TO ANYONE
CLING TO EVERYONE
CLING TO NOONE
OR WHY DON'T YOU CLING TO ME
Track Name: 165B Sunset Street
165B SUNSET STREET


Autumn sunset turns to gold
hear the children play down sunset street
and all the people that you meet
TO FIND A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN BE
it's easy and you know that it's for free
TAKE THE ROAD DOWN SUNSET STREET
if you don't believe me just turn on your tv
if you don't believe me just turn on your tv
INSTR. B FSharp minor A Em
TAKE A STROLL DOWN SUNSET STREET
KICKING THROUGH THE DEAD LEAVES AS YOU GO
ITS THE BEST PLACE THAT I KNOW
TURN ON YOUR TV
TURN UP YOUR TV
TURN OFF YOUR TV
165B SUNSET STREET
165B SUNSET STREET
BEHIND EVERY broken WINDOW THERE'S a dream
to the vast and empty sky
Track Name: Strange Sun
Carry me down to the valley she said
I can feel the darkness coming overhead
even the stones are like feather beds
your love doesn't hurt
And it's fatal when it's best
when her grip had gone from my hand
I stood all alone in this desolate land
Back in the valley I make out how I can
But some things that break
You can never mend
