About This Album

Lyrics

  • Big Thing

    get it up get it out get it in time
    hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
    move it in move it out move up the line
    bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

    brothers and sisters let me hear it
    get it up get it on get it in time
    give me the green light and watch me move it
    move it up move it out move up the line
    this is temptation power rotation
    give me the friction and watch me make it
    make it up making out making it slide

    so glad you came along
    this time you won't be wrong
    you love to turn it on
    and you'renot the only one

    Brothers and sisters we can take it
    shake it up shake it out shake it all the time
    give me the suction we can stick it
    lick it up suck it up stick it outside
    this is temptation (station)
    power rotation (to station)
    give me the playlist and watch me eat it
    eat it up beat it up beat it in time

    so glad you came along
    this time you won't be wrong
    you love to turn it on
    and you'renot the only one

    get it up get it out get it in time
    hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
    move it in move it out move up the line
    bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

    get it up get it out get it in time
    hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
    move it in move it out move up the line
    bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

  • I don't mind if you're keeping someone else behind
    I don't care 'cause you've got something I can share

    Hey, take a chance, even if it's only
    only while we're dancing in the
    light of your second sight because
    when you understand me
    you might feel good around me now.

    CHORUS
    I don't want your love to bring me down
    I don't want your love so turn it around

    I won't turn you out if you've got someone else
    someone else you care about
    because you must realise
    my obsessive fascination is in your imagination

    CHORUS

    Your rhythym is the power to move me
    It's something you control completely
    I don't want your love
    I don't want your love

    I like noise 'cause I like waking up the house
    I cannot sit down. I can't shut my mouth
    But when you understand me,
    you might feel good around me

    CHORUS

    Your rhythym is the power to move me
    It's something you control completely
    I don't want your love
    I don't want your love

  • All she wants is
    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    Spend your money on the corner now
    Know you've gotta save some
    for the shoeshine boys
    You've been pulling 'em
    by the hand inside
    Oh...collecting all your toys
    If you need a lead heaven now,
    just stick around--
    You're going to be there
    What do you dare?
    What do you care?
    What does your heart say now?

    All she wants is
    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    Divine intervention
    couldn't keep the word
    from leaking out
    With your pleasure in suspension
    Not to mention
    what you hang it around
    If you need a lead to heaven, yeah
    A place to share
    In every position
    What do you dare?
    What do you care?
    What does your heart say now?

    All she wants is
    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    More...

    All she wants is (repeat to fade)

  • Waking out of nowhere
    And I let you in
    Til my imagination went for a spin
    I seen you every night
    Been making out since then
    And still I wonder why everybody's saying
    That ice is thin.

    And I think I know you
    Just a little bit by nowA
    And I think I can show you
    You see baby, I don't want to fight about it

    Send down your rain
    Then who's to blame
    And you'll understand
    because its' much too late to change

    Awaken to this hunger
    And then watch my heat
    Grow paler than the moonlight
    That you made me eat
    And if we run our lives
    Along a one way street
    We'll always wonder why everytime
    It still tastes just as sweet

    Send down your rain
    Then who's to blame
    You'll understand
    Because it's much too late to change
    I will explain
    We're to much the same
    No I won't leave
    Because it's just too late Marlene

  • Take me every morning
    Take me every night
    Take me when you're feeling low
    Take me when you want to stay
    up all night

    Before you slip into the white
    there's something i want you to know
    in all your stretch of consciousness
    you've still got a long way to go
    Some make you spin,
    Some make you sweat,
    it's only here for you to choose
    Some like it hot,
    But I like it wet, so tell me...
    what have we got to lose now?

    Take me every morning
    Take me every night
    Take me when you're feeling low
    Take me when you want to stay
    up all night

    (a hit, a hit)
    A hit to fit reality
    It's just a state of mind
    and you, and it, it's more than just
    and that's what you've got to find
    we'll make you spin,
    we'll make you sweat
    all you have to do is choose me
    and if you would try
    and alternative high
    then tell me, what have we got to lose now?

    Take me every morning
    Take me every night
    Take me when you're feeling low
    Take me when you want to stay
    up all night

    Take me every morning
    Take me every night
    Take me when you're feeling low
    Take me when you want to stay
    up all night

  • Do you believe in love?
    Do you believe in shame?
    And if love can conquer all
    then why do we only feel the pain?

    I heard you speak my name
    heard you singing The Stones
    maybe heard you laughing in a line of static
    on my telephone

    So why your eyelids are closed,
    inside a case of rust
    And did you have to change
    all your poets fire into frozen dust

    I've tried to justify it to learn from your mistake
    But where's the stupid lie that has to make it's point
    with such a pointless waste

    Come out

    Do you believe in shame?
    Do you believe in love?
    And if they taste the same
    would you love again or abandon both?

    I don't think I ever can
    belive my friend has gone
    Keep saying it's alright I'm going to bring you back
    but I know I'm wrong

    There's nothing I can say
    there's nothing left to do
    It's just that lately I feel so damn lonely
    when I think of you

    And it may seem selfish now
    but I'll hold on to the memory
    Until all this fear is washed away
    Do you believe in love?
    Do you believe in life?
    'Cos I believe a little part of you inside of me
    will never die...

  • She lays on the wall
    watching the strangers drift away
    mid-day's ore--thick
    with the sun of Arabia

    she surrenders her voices
    they gather, on the wind
    talkin, chanting, breathing
    into her body...yesterday

    Awakened beside
    the scent of burnt sugar--on the skin
    painting eyes--thick
    with the color she brings in
    oh, and sure and strong
    when the lightning tumbles down
    don't you frown
    everything will be
    in time for this evening

    if there's secrets
    she has to be pardoned to
    every one of them
    if there's heaven
    she gets to the heart

    and you'll know...
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    help me rise instead
    then I will run to you
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    give me rain instead
    now let me run... (let me run)

    --synthwash/piano interlude--

    if there's secrets
    she has to be pardoned to
    every one of them
    if there's heaven
    she gets to the heart

    and you'll know...
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    help me rise instead
    then I will run to you
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    give me rain instead
    now let me run... (let me run)

    Hey-hey....
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    help me rise instead
    then I will run to you
    why she says
    when I run out of blue
    give me rain instead
    then I will run to you

    (repeat to fade)

  • Baby, I'm really sorry
    to break your dream
    when it's so early
    Headlights
    on the windowpane
    they're getting lost
    in the light of day

    tomorrow is today
    and soon my ship will sail

    Away from here
    to walk a howling sealane
    stay for me
    your love is life
    for love is land

    Baby, just hear my story
    before I leave
    before we write the end
    Standing, across the ocean stream
    I'll need to know
    I'll need your country then

    tomorrow and today
    you keep my landfall safe

    away from here (away from here)
    to walk a howling sealane (away from you)
    stay for me (stay for me)
    I need your love to land
    away from here (away from here)
    to walk a howling sealane (away from you)
    stay for me (stay for me)
    your love is life, for love is land

    away from here (away from here)
    to walk a howling sealane (away from you)
    stay for me (stay for me)
    I need your love to land
    away from here (away from here)
    to walk a howling sealane (away from you)
    stay for me (stay for me)
    your love is life, for love is land

    love is land
    love is land
    love is land

  • (Instrumental)

  • Walk the edge of America
    A concrete beach to scrape my hand
    inside the subway stinking fear and shame
    becomes the violent breath

    Vigilantes out on dawn patrol
    but now there's nothing left to hide
    I'm just a number on the metal fence
    which marks the great divide

    Hey boy
    give your dreams a rest
    if you're tired of searching
    this is where it ends
    there's nothing left to lose
    nothing to protest
    learn to love your anger now
    anger here is all you possess
    welcome to the age

    Below the towers of the citadel
    Seems someone overlooked the cost
    Forgotten soldier of paradise
    now paradise is lost

    Recognition never realized
    Salvation lost among the crowd
    So tell me beside this sterile sea
    where is your nation now?

    And we say
    Hey boy
    give your dreams a rest
    if you're tired of searching
    this is where it ends
    there's nothing left to lose
    nothing to protest
    learn to love your anger now
    anger here is all you possess
    welcome to the edge
