Track Name: War Crimes
I do my business well
With oil & my citadels
My cup is overflowing now
As business booms with poisoned wells
I've never worn that shade of green
It doesn't go with red it seems

But I take my time with my war crimes
I take my time with my war crimes

As Nero watched his city burn
He didn't play the saxophone
The cat-gut strings on a crooked bow
As chaos swamped the town below
His Empire in a downward slide
A soldier with a stingin' pride

But I take my time with my War Crimes
I take my time with my War Crimes

But these days it's not a crime
These days it's not a crime
These days it's not a crime
These days it's not a crime
My conscience is a mute
I give a Fifteen gun Salute!
I give Fifteen gun Salute

But I take my time...
I take my time

But I take my time with my War Crimes
I take my time with my War Crimes
Track Name: Dub Pig
Disconnected
Yr still waiting for me
Disconnected
Yr still waiting for me

I come to from a coma
I come to from a coma
My twenties were gone
My twenties were gone
I come to from a coma
I come to from a coma
My twenties were gone
My twenties were gone

Disconnected
Yr still waiting for me
Disconnected
Yr still waiting for me


I come to from a coma
I come to from a coma
My twenties were gone
My twenties were gone
I come to from a coma
I come to from a coma
My twenties were gone
My twenties were gone
Track Name: Black Fire
If you walk into a dream
There is no guarantee
What you hold in yr hand
And yr heart are the keys
In a fortress of desire
With yr body bound in wire
Where’s the War?
Where’s the War?
That I first asked you for?

Is there a reason
Is there someone you can blame?
O I think I got that feeling again
I got that feeling again...

Hold yrself close to me
You might catch something for free
No more room for you and me
That’s a faint but growing possibility

Is there a reason
Is there someone you can blame?
O I think I got that feeling again
I got that feeling again...


Is there a reason
Is there someone we can blame?
O I think I got that feeling again
I got that feeling again...
Track Name: Into The Sun
We look
We look into the sun
We see there’s only one
But there are millions behind us
Staring back upon us there
A there we’ll never share
An ocean that will never find us
Beyond the star
Beyond the scars
To see if the mystery is true
A piece of the mystery that’s true


We look
We look into the sun
We see there’s only one
But there are millions behind us
Staring back upon us there
A there we’ll never share
An ocean that will never find us
Beyond the star
Beyond the scars
To see if the mystery is true
A piece of the mystery that’s true

No waking up
No waking up (Look at the moon!)
No waking up (Look at the moon!)
No waking up (Look at the moon!)
No waking up (Look at the moon!)
No waking up...
Track Name: Dominoes
Dream
Dominoes
Short black
And awake
Blowflies buzzing
Step outside
The weather‘s just the same…

Storm
Broken cup
A whale of a time
Lists long
Little fists
Of sky

The weather never stays
Plays a game gone yesterday

You will lie
You will lie

The weather never stays
Plays a game gone yesterday
The weathers just the same

Old
Silhouettes
Faces we know
Cold snow
Photographs

The weather never changes
The weather never stay the same

You will lie
Like dominoes
You will lie
Like dominoes
You will lie
Like dominoes
You will lie like dominoes
Track Name: Faces
Faces are happy now
Caught like birds in flight
Laughing and let it out
Nothing ever dies now
Nothing ever does

It’s just the same thing
It’s just the same thing crying

Build towards the sun
Glass is gonna rain down
Rain on everyone so
Blame the world
Nothing ever wins babe
Nothing ever could
Nothing ever wins babe
Noone ever should

It’s just the same thing
It’s just the same thing crying

Clap your hands
Take another bow now
Do it all again, c’mon
Clap your hands
Take another bow now
Do it all again, c’mon

It’s just the same thing
It’s just the same thing crying
It’s just the same thing
It’s just the same thing dying
Track Name: We Can Only Wait
Fools like me don’t pray
My prayers are but whispers in a crowded parade
I could ask, but I won’t
Cos I won’t remain here for long
Oh, yr hardly a Man
Though yr trying the best that you can
It’s the dress and stilettos
The press will write librettos about
Can’t you figure it out cant you figure it out
The future forgets no regrets about it
Can’t you figure it out can’t you figure it out
That the laws that you break know no Heaven or Hell
Only waiting … we can only wait …

Fools like me don’t pray
I was ripped from the earth
I’ll go back to one day
It’s a given we’re livin some Fuckers idea
Of a joke …
Oh yr hardly a Man
Yr tryin too hard to be hard as you can
It’s the car, and the scars,
And the dumb dopey look on yr face

Can’t yr figure it out cant you figure it out
The future forgets no regrets about it
Can’t you figure it out cant you figure it out
When the laws that you break know no heave or hell
Can’t you figure it out cant you figure it out
The future regrets and forgets about it
Can you figure it out? Have you figured it out
In yr heart that you know that your whisper’s a shout
Only waiting …
We can only wait …
Track Name: Closing In
TO GO WITH, AND WITHOUT
AND TO SEE HOW YR LIFE TURNS OUT
YES, I KNOW THAT ITS CLOSING IN
TO ABSTAIN, TO RELAPSE
OR TO FIND A REPLEACEMENT PERHAPS
ALL THIS TIME IS CLOSING IN ...

O IM WAITING FOR THE SUN
O IM WAITING FOR THE SUN

O I HEARD WHAT YOU SAID
BUT I WAS THINKIN THAT I SHOULD BE DEAD
ALL THIS TIME IS CLOSING IN
ONE MORE NOW FOR THE ROAD
SO I CAN HARVEST ALL THE SEEDS IVE SOWN
O EXCESS IS CLOSING IN ...

IM WAITING FOR THE SUN
IM WAITING FOR THE SUN

AD NAUSEUM
Track Name: Hey Pal!
Hey Pal! Are ya ready to go?
Yr eyes look crazy and yr moving too slow
Hey watch yr mouth there, and watch that blow!
Hey Pal, well Im ready to go
Hey Pal, are you lookin for me
Are you ready to see what Lucifer’s bungin‘ at me?
A hole in the head or hung from a tree
Well there are worse things to be ...
Hey pal!
Hey Pal!
Hey Pal!
Hey Pal!

Hey Pal, are you ready to eat?
I saw you skulkin‘ on that side of the street
Two Guiness down and a side of meat
Hey Pal are you ready to eat...?
So hold yrself and hold yr nose
I see you writin’ pretty average prose
Dont wait for nothin‘ so nothin‘ grows
So close, So near, So far, So clear

Hey Pal!

I just dont wanna hear you say it Pal
I justdont wanna hear you say it Pal
I just dont wanna hear you say it Pal
I just dont wanna hear you say it Pal

I‘m a Holy soul ... O well, not really
But close enough
But close enough ...


O Hey Pal are you ready to go?
Yr eyes look crazy and yr movin too slow
Hey watch yr mouth there, and watch that blow!
Hey Pal are you ready to go?
Hey Pal are you ready to go?
Hey Pal are you ready to go
Hey Pal are you ready to go?

Hold yrself, hold yr nose
Hold yrself, and do-ce-do ...
Control yrself, do-ce-do ...
Hold yrself, do-ce-do, do-ce-do ...
Hey Pal!
Track Name: Fallen Angel
What else have we got?
And what else do we have before our
Spirit‘s all but shot?
I can hardly move
Sirens spiral through this cruel
Sky that we pollute

Another fallen angel
Someone to see me through

Calling all good souls
And calling all you faithless wonders
God wont even own
We’ve given up on truth
Theology’s pedantic Crows
The stains of Man‘s abuse

Just another fallen angel
Someone to see me through
Another fallen angel
Someone to see me through

We plow the stony fields
We plant in ashes freshly sown
The harvest never yields
The taste of blood and bone
The primitive will always win
And needs to feed alone

Another fallen angel
Someone to see me through
Another fallen angel
Someone to see me through
Track Name: DJ
I cant dance
Cant sing
But I‘ve a diamond ring
I‘ve got so much to say
So I sleep all day
Just as long as I get paid
I‘ve got a smoke machine
A TV screen, the lights on me
But I cant SEE ...

DJ
Where’s yr soul?

I cant play guitar
But I‘ve got a lowered car
I‘ve got so much to say
I can‘t play the bass
Will you still come to my place?
Come watch me spin tonite
The feelings right
You’ll get in tight with me and all my

Djs
Where‘s yr soul?
DJ
Where’s yr soul?
Track Name: Indigo
Belly up in the stairs
This old star is floating
Honest to God
What a devil of a lie traded in for it all…
Black tie¨
Just a little more each time
He shuffles numbers till his number dies
And the 7.37 will catch his fall
Belly up belly up belly up
No sleep until it‘s all done
Five hours sleep
Four hours pass, how long will we last?
I’m only eight years old, pal
Only indigo, indigo
Life on a thread …
