Now I was feeling like a total giant!
But now it feels like Silvius Brabo has sliced my hand off and thrown it in the river!
Now I was just doing my job,
My feet sink into the bed of the Scheldt
But now my fingers are reeling about with the fishes
I know I'm not making mwwaking any sense (no you're not)
All will be reveiled (well I hope so)
All will be reveiled if we travel back in time
A headless and harrowing future is developing for our generation and generations to come.
But as I walk the chartered street of this familiar oblivion,
I recognise nothing but unyeilding unconsciousness;
In which we have almost comfortably drowned.
It is madness
This abnormality is madness!
We are clinging crippling constraints...
Fanfare For The Conscious Man
Each nation used to provide it's country with security
With factories providing arms for their country
Now multi-national companies compete in the arms trade,
To serve any customer maximizing the money to be made
So just as farms compete to provide fruit for other countries,
So people can live to enjoy the taste of nature
National warehouses compete to provide arms around the world
To aid death and all hell unfurled.
Gap In The Fence
I lie here
Staring up at the stratosphere
And hoping we're
Gonna get out of here
It seems mad
That we're all born on the doorstep
Of squalor and of pedestals
And I lie here
Surrounded by a range of general anesthetics
To drowse the fact
The lions are at the door
We aint taking order from snakes no more,
The lions are at the door
Yeah, we aint taking order from snakes no more.
Yeah how'd you like that boy?
Just another day in the acid nation,
Expected to go down hindrance
To the multi story car park, with our friends
Drinking from a bottle of white lightning
On top of marks and sparks, roof running
Smoking chronic, hectic.
And it seems that nothing now will ever change,
And it seems that we're on our own again
We'll convene at mine 3pm to play
Sega mega drive, goldenaxe and sonic, all day
And I know that we've still got time
But I do not think we're invincible
And I think that it is a sign
'Cos I do not think we're invincible
Crushing all in it's path (x4)
Now don't get me wrong I love what you done with the place
I just wish we had a chance to help build it
Instead of just moving into this home of disrepair
No Sleep Tonight
And I'm thinking what's the deal
With the facts that they conceal
And I'm thinking what's the harm
With a bit of rhetoric and charm
And I can't quite comprehend
A beginning or an end
No I can't quite stomach this, no.
You and me we're gonna take
Here tonight, I clock a thousand heads
Here to unite, through common dreads
Now whose with me? HOOO
Something trips inside
That's been dormant for a thousand years
Now we can no longer hide
The immediacy of these fears
Our names will not be writ on water
And we don't need an ark
One day I know, the damn will collapse
If our own lives aren't directly affected
Then it don't need to be corrected?
How fucking cute is our ignorance?
We're insidious as they're praying for their deliverance
We shelter ourselves from the outcries
We blinker ourselves from the eyesores
But I know
WE HAVE GREATNESS WITHIN US
We have greatness within us, innovative, determined, it's time for the best in us to come out
SEARCH and you can find imbalance
Simmer down ladies and gentlemen, simmer down.
You're acting rather irresponsibly right now.
Damn you all...
Hold your horses, steady now,
'Cos we're floating precariously and therefore
On tectonic plates.
And everything we stand on and everything we stand for
Is rather unstable right now.
I'm gonna paste you up
Cover you in wallpaper
Screw shelves into you
And call you a wall
That's all you are to me
Tryna keep people inside
Inside inside your sordid little house
This is no white abode
Mate! I'm zonked absolutely spent.
I think I'm gonna give my eyes up for lent.
I'll use my sockets to stock stones instead,
And with an icy cold stare I'll hide bones in your bed.
Mate! Please accept this invitation,
So I can take you away.
'Cos there's a one in 40 thousand chance that
