About This Album

Lyrics

  • Too Much Information

    Destroyed by MTV,
    I hate to bite the hand that
    feeds me so much information
    The Pressure's on the screen
    to sell you things that you don't need
    it's too much information for me

    Hey TV Child look into my eyes
    Here by intervention I want your attention

    Promotion Boy in a suit and tie
    He wants you to use it
    You're too shot to loose it

    It's pumpin down the cable
    Like never seen before
    A COLA [condom] manufacturer is sponsoring the war

    Here comes the news with love from me to you

    Destroyed by ABC
    I hate to bite the hand that
    feeds me so much information
    The Pressure's on the screen
    to sell you things that you don't need
    it's too much information for me

    Turn on the tube
    Hits you with the Groove
    advertizin muzik
    We want you to choose it

    These teeth are white trainers ULTRA BRITE

    This band is perfect just don't scratch the surface

    We covered all the angles
    the survey people said
    Just put us on the cover we'll be smilin anyway

    This video was made with LOVE to you

    Destroyed by BBC
    I hate to bite the hand that
    feeds me so much information
    The Pressure's on the screen to
    sell you things that you don't need
    it's too much information for me

    Destroyed by MTV
    I hate to bite the hand that
    feeds me so much information
    The Pressure's on the screen to
    sell you things that you don't need
    it's too much information for me

    {MID8}

    Dialate your MIND
    Dialate your MIND
    Dialate your MIND

    Got to give it to me
    Got to listen to me
    Got to give in to me
    Now I'm on the line

    I try......

  • Came in from a rainy Thursday
    on the avenue
    thought I heard you talking softly

    I turned on the lights, the TV
    and the radio
    still I can't escape the ghost of you

    What has happened to it all?
    Crazy, some'd say
    Where is the life that I recognize?
    gone away

    But I won't cry for yesterday
    there's an ordinary world
    Somehow I have to find
    and as I try to make my way
    to the ordinary world
    I will learn to survive

    Passion or coincidence
    once prompted you to say
    "Pride will tear us both apart"
    Well now pride's gone out the window
    cross the rooftops
    run away
    left me in the vacuum of my heart

    What is happening to me?
    Crazy, some'd say
    Where is my friend when I need you most?
    Gone away

    but I won't cry for yesterday
    there's an ordinary world
    somehow I have to find
    and as I try to make my way
    to the ordinary world
    I will learn to survive

    Papers in the roadside
    tell of suffering and greed
    here today, forgot tomorrow
    ooh, here besides the news
    of holy war and holy need
    ours is just a little sorrowed talk

    And I don't cry for yesterday
    there's an ordinary world
    Somehow I have to find
    and as I try to make my way
    to the ordinary world
    I will learn to survive

    every one
    is my world, I will learn to survive
    any one
    is my world, I will learn to survive
    any one
    is my world
    every one
    is my world

  • When I first met you on the roof
    You cought me in your web of youth
    But now I know the wicked truth
    It's much to late so what's the use in fighting?

    You peel me like an onion skin
    And wonder at the state I'm in
    One day you'll turn up to begin
    And find there's nothing left but innuendo

    Beside you others fade away
    Like Amateurs in love's charade
    Much more than just a game you play
    These certain rules become a way of living

    Night after night I try to prove
    That I can resist you
    Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
    Designed to Manipulate

    The Queen of sensuality
    You shelter me from Liberty
    It's nothing short of Piracy
    That's not to say it doesn't please me sometimes.

    Now this may come as no surprise
    But I'm content to compromise
    Until the day you realize
    That I have been manipulating you

    Night after night I try to prove
    That I can resist you
    Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
    Designed to Manipulate

    MID

    Yes, I'm tied up inside your loving
    But it's voodoo to me

    Everynight how I try
    How I try to resist you
    But it's no good to me

    Night after night I try to prove
    That I can resist you
    Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
    Designed to Manipulate

    Night after night I try to prove
    That I can resist you
    Tied up inside your Love Voodoo
    Designed to Manipulate

  • He's sinking faster than a drowning man
    He'll grab a hold of anyone he can
    Gun in his poket and a heart of ham
    Uncle Sam

    He's dying faster than a rabid dog
    Infect us all now he's losing blood
    Nose for trouble and a soul of rock
    Smokey's man

    Don't drag me down
    I don't wanna drown
    Your going down

    NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA

    There's not much flesh
    Just skin and bone
    Cheeks sunk deep
    Eyes popping wide

    Don't put out a hand to help him
    This drowning man will bite it right off

    RIGHT OFF
    RIGHT OFF
    RIGHT OFF

    Don't drag me down
    I don't wanna drown
    Your going down

    NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA

    MID

    He's selling faster than a magazine
    Infect us all with his TV Screen

    Don't drag me down
    I don't wanna drown
    Your going down

    NA NANA NA NANA NANA NA NA

  • Get it together
    Thing is jumpin'
    I wanna see your
    Bullets pumpin'

    Shotgun

    Itchy finger
    On the trigger
    Got to make the
    Shooter bigger

    Shotgun

  • Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin
    I've been waiting for you
    Signed, with a home tattoo,
    Happy birthday to you was created for you

    (can't ever keep from falling apart
    At the seams
    Can't I believe you're taking my heart
    To pieces)

    Oh, it'll take a little time,
    might take a little crime
    to come undone now

    (PRECHORUS)
    We'll try to stay blind
    to the hope and fear outside
    Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
    And blow me in to cry

    (CHORUS)
    Who do you need, who do you love
    When you come undone
    (repeat)

    (Verse 2)
    Words, playing me deja vu
    Like a radio tune I swear I've heard before
    Chill, is it something real
    Or the magic I'm feeding off your fingers

    (Can't ever keep from falling apart
    At the seams
    Can I believe you're taking my heart
    To pieces)

    Lost, in a snow filled sky, we'll make it alright
    To come undone now

  • Breath After Breath
    Ama! Danca!

    Every day I wake up in this room
    and I don't know
    Where I come from,
    where I'm going to
    then I hear the voice

    Senhora musa da paz
    Me abraca
    me carrega no teu andor

    Dormir no colo da dor
    Amiga, arrasa!
    A tua mao desenhou
    O sonho na areia
    Agora, entrega de vez
    Meu rumo
    E vida

    From where I stand
    The truth isn't black and white
    Alone we live and die
    We love and fight
    Breath after breath
    we carry this mortal coil
    Safe for tomorrow

    Do I dare
    oh do I dare
    follow through the goorsteps
    my whole body hears
    Beating on my heart like a feather
    beating of a moment til I disappear

    Diga uma palavra alegre
    Manda um recado
    Que seja agoca
    Faz o mundo ficar novo
    E dancar no colo do tal de amor

    From where I stand
    The truth isn't black and white
    Alone we live and die
    We love and fight
    Breath after breath
    we carry this mortal coil
    Safe for tomorrow

    Circles in sand are washed out into the sea
    Just as we slip on through to eternity
    Breath after breath
    we carry this mortal coil
    Safe for tomorrow

    Diga uma palavra, cara
    Bem alegre
    Corre, manda logo um recado
    Me abraca
    Faz um clima doce
    Me arrepia!
    Chega de sufocol
    Me poe louco!
    Me faz diamante
    Teu amante
    Danca ao som do vento
    Me ensina
    Basta de sufoco
    Nao faz jogo...

    A flame of love is burning
    Always
    The song is of the planets
    oh whooooooo
    The dance is to the rhythm of the rain
    Where everyone is coming from
    is coming to

    And birth is just a
    breath after breath

  • Here we stand
    in the shadow of the master plan
    Makin' touble wherever we can,
    stir it up, stir it up, stir it up
    Can't you see this boy is going cheap -
    knockdown to a basement deal
    But I really won't stop til I get to the top
    Take it from me, I'm waiting here on my knees
    And I love the way you tease me
    (oh) such a wonderful person
    Don't play rough -
    it's easy when you know your stuff
    Say please and sure enough, so kind,
    I'm makin love to the ultimate mind

    Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
    You could feel a love come tumbling down
    I just want to wrap myself in you baby
    We could tell the world we're fooling around

    Ultimately, I'd say shes toying with me
    It's a case of wait and see,
    but right now I'm gonna keep my pants on
    A to Zed, shes doin' it to my head
    We don't need to go to bed, you'll find,
    to make love to the ultimate mind

    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    Put it to me, baby
    (you could feel a love...)

    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    Wanna wrap myself in you, baby
    (we'll tell the world...)

    Talk me round,
    let's do it right here and now
    I don't want you cooling down,
    turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
    We could fit reality's two-way split personality
    Life's a bitch, but I'm fine,
    making love to the ultimate mind
    Heaven's bent, we're completely innocent
    We all got to pay the rent,
    and in time we learn to compromise
    Talkin' tall, but I feel invisible
    Can you see me after all that I said,
    there's only one thing for it

    Take a look, put it to me, baby
    You could feel a love come tumbling down
    I just want to wrap myself in you baby
    We can tell the world were fooling around

    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    You could be a love come tumbling down
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    I just want to wrap myself in you baby
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    We could tell the world we're fooling around
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    You could feel a love come tumbling down
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    I just want to wrap myself in you baby
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    We could tell the world we're fooling around
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    Come on, take a look (put it to me baby)
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)
    (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh...)

    I'm making love to the ultimate mind
    Ultimate mind
    Ultimate mind...

  • There was a time I was so afraid
    Of everything people around me said
    That I wanted to hide my face in the shadows

    There was a time on a bed of nails
    I was dreaming a plan I thought could not fail
    But no power under the sun could pull it together

    I can't take this attitude
    Got to show now I got to move on
    God knows where I'm going to
    Its a lonely burning question

    I am I myself alone
    Realize I never need to use No-one
    Money, power, Holy roads.
    Freedom puts my faith in none of the above

    If there's a time that we ever see
    The nature of life in reality
    Then I want to be there
    To kick at the answer

    I can't take this attitude
    Got to show now I got to move on
    God knows where I'm going to
    Its a lonely burning question

    I am I myself alone
    Realize I never need to use No-one
    Money, power, Holy roads.
    Freedom puts my faith in none of the above
    I am I myself alone
    Realize I never need to use No-one
    Money, power, Holy roads.
    Freedom puts my faith in none of the above

    MIDDLE

    I am I myself alone

  • Here she comes you better watch your step.
    She's going to break your heart in two
    Its true it's not hard to realize
    Just look into her false coloured eyes
    She'll build you up just to put you down,
    What a clown

    'Coz everybody knows... she's a femme fatale
    Things she does to please, sees just a little tease
    See the way she walks, hear the way she talks

    You're written in her book,
    You're number 37 take a look
    She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
    Little boy she's from the street

    She's going to play you for a fool

    'Coz everybody knows... she's a femme fatale
    Things she does to please, sees just a little tease

  • I watch you from my window working this vicious road
    You shudder when the wind blows
    girl you're looking beat and cold
    Don't know your situation but you look so alone to me
    In my imagination this is how the message reads

    Just come softly to me in the shelter of my heart

    Trust my intuition you're the one I've got to know
    I give without condition wouldn't try to save your soul
    Money or reputation doesn't mean a thing to me
    Special communication it's the only thing we need

    Reaching out... Calling out
    Just come softly to me
    Calling out...
    Hear me now
    In the shelter of my heat

    Reaching out... calling out...
    Hear me now... do you read me?
    In the shelter of my heart.

    Mid

    Here is no pain to feel
    Here is safe for lips unsealed
    Just come softly to me
    Reaching out
    Reaching out for your love babe
    Calling out
    Calling out for your love
    for your love babe
    Just come softly to me in the shelter of my heart

  • Dear Mr. Bones, I've [We've] had enough

    without you Mr. Bones

    Some people feed on other people's troubles
    Some people beat on other people's meat
    Some people want to bleed us dry
    and some people...Gonna down on your feet.

    You said "Boy's I'll get you more
    but you have got to pay me by the hour".
    Anyways you are just another bore
    who believes he's a superpower.

    When you talk about loyalty
    I just hope you realize
    since you ate my roalities
    Mr. Bones this is goodbye.

    This is goodbye and such hereinafter shall be reffered.
    Notwithstanding or foregoing statements unpreferred.
    Don't claim you understand
    when you've not heard a single word, a dicky bird.

    Some people want to bleed us dry
    and some people... gonna drown on your feet.

  • Coat check girl up in Happyland
    has a violent row with a Cuban man
    Julio leaves in a drunken rage
    Comes back with the gasoline
    The club has no fire exit
    The club had no door
    Only five people came out alive

    The sin is that 89 died
    89 dead
    89 dead
    89 dead
    89 dead

    The sin is that a year and a half
    before the fire chief's out
    and he's raising cain brands
    Happyland hazzard close down but no.

    No-one ever paid him no mind
    City living heavy trouble
    City living rough
    We are given angry heart
    But angers not enough

    Daily News reviews of the landlords life
    found six thousand code violations light.
    The city has more a hundred thousand wars
    all for one of Forbes' Four Hundred whores.
    Just one fire cracker on a big bonfire
    of self serving penny pinching wiseguy style.
    Never allowing for the human condition.
    The sin is that these guys survive.

    City living heavy trouble
    City living rough.
    We are given angry heart
    But anger's not enough... rpt.

    You're using your people up.
    Stop killing your people now.
    Stop wasting your people now
