1. DEAD HORSES AND DIVORCES
We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of 
we got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of

Listen to the lies there's something in our minds 
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky 
listen to the lies there's something in our minds 
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky

Now open up your eyes

Love and obey honour and uphold 
never walk alone future be foretold 
say unto me loyal to the one 
blessed be the name thy will be done

We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of 
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck)

Listen to the fear there's something in our minds 
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky 
listen to the fear there's something in our minds 
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky

Love and obey honour and uphold 
never walk alone future be foretold 
say unto me loyal to the one 
blessed be the name thy will be done

We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of 
we got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of 
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck) 
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck)

2. SANITY BELL
Cold man you took my mind away 
old man the things we need to say

The time bed arrives with a pocket watch and holes in the side 
a brown paper bag with a message on beware the divide

The sanity bell chimes through the years turns the dark winter days to night 
the heavenly pain across the sky falls the veil of the fading light

Cold man you took my mind away 
old man the things we need to say

The cage it will pass on the waterline a breath in the glass 
return it to me by the after glow then wait for the snow

The sanity bell chimes through the years turns the dark winter days to night 
the heavenly pain across the sky falls the veil of the fading light

Cold man you took my love away 
old man the things we need to say

3. BIG BOMB BOUNCY BANG BANG
Wild man run for me wild man come 
wild man speak to me wild man fly

A ship with another crew and a song for the other two 
we sail to a better place with a gift for another race 
we found what we're looking for in the foil of a closing door 
we know what we want to do in a ship with another crew

Wild man run for me wild man come 
wild man speak to me wild man fly

A ship with a better crew as we sail to another blue 
a song for a better place not a soul not another face 
the sound of a battle cry on the edge of a broken sky 
we know what we want to do in a ship with another crew

Breath it in breath it out 
fight the pain fight the doubt 
load the bomb load the gun 
to the people from the sun 
end the madness end the joy 
end the sorrow now deploy 
to the man to the eye 
from the heavens in the sky 
To the shadow overhead 
now the thunder seeing red 
rock the boat mock the call 
fool to greet to the wall 
murky maze now belief 
solemn silence no relief 
sound the call now beware 
empty heart empty stare 
To the mass to the fight 
from the Gods through the night 
feel the fury feel the pain 
for the most for the sane 
time to heal time to mend 
say goodbye weary friend 
pull the plug do it now 
take a leap take a bow 
breath it in breath it out 
time to run time to shout 
burn a candle to the flame 
show no mercy place the blame 
first the light then a spark 
end the day now the dark 
end the sorrow end the joy 
in the end we destroy

4. AS THE SKY FALLS DOWN
As the sky falls down 
as the angels frown 
as the cold wind blows 
my eternal rose

I want you to know the way back home 
find our place alone 
through the broken land 
a sanctuary of love a sanctuary of peace

As the sky falls down 
on the ancient town 
see the wise man cry 
till the last goodbye

I want you to know the way back home 
find our place alone 
through the broken land 
a sanctuary of love a sanctuary of peace

5.THE SENSITIVE MAN
As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows 
you will find him there sitting on his chair 
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got tonight he will plot

A dark descent 
the sleeping crow 
a twisted knife 
the horror show 
a broken wing 
a shattered bone 
a soothing blade 
on my own

The sensitive man cuts deep 
he slices away at what is left of himself 
poor sensitive man he cuts deep 
and slices away at what is left of himself

As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows 
you will find him there sitting on his chair 
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got tonight he will plot

A soaring bird 
the bleeding sky 
an arrow's thorn 
the golden eye 
a looming gate 
the fading hope 
a rusty edge 
the tangled rope

The sensitive man cuts deep 
he slices away at what is left of himself 
poor sensitive man he cuts deep 
and slices away at what is left of himself

As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows 
you will find him there sitting on his chair 
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got goodnight

6. The Empty Space
The man wouldn't tell me what to do 
he wouldn't tell me what he knew

His silent fear and the empty space 
I long to leave this wretched place

But he wouldn't tell me what to do 
because he never realised what I knew

I am but a drop in the ocean.

7. BLACK BOX
Cold long night cold dark night 
cold long night cold dark night 
and the air is gone

Cold long night cold dark night 
cold long night cold dark night 
and the pain is gone

8. HOUSE ON THE HILL
Cold in the winter snow cold to the place below 
far from the masked array far from another day 
cold to the bitter end cold to a faithful friend 
far from the open sea far from a home to be

House on the hill hide away 
house on the hill run away 
house on the hill hide away 
house on the hill run away

House on the hill hide away
house on the hill run away 
house on the hill hide away 
house on the hill run away

Cold in the winter night cold to the burning light
far from a tender breeze far from the raging seas 
cold to a bitter mind cold to a gentle kind 
far from an empty space far from another place

9. MY UNLOVING GOD
A trumpet sounds the battle cry
to carry forth beyond the sky 
the golden gates a solemn prize 
a loving man his dark disguise

My eyes are blind I long to see I pray to you
now walk with me stand by my side I pray to you

My world is yours to take it with you
my life on hold I give it to you my unloving God

The fallen men of a nation proud
the joy of war a hanging cloud 
a fight for life for evermore 
an open wound a closing door

My boy he needs your guiding hand I pray to you
as through the night I hear your call I pray to you

My world is yours to take it with you
my life on hold I give it to you my unloving God

The lonely road a beaten track
another world upon my back 
keep the faith until the end 
I wonder why my silent friend 

10. HIS MASTER'S VOICE
Here I am sitting on the top of the world
I'm sitting on the edge of reality and waiting for this moment to heal 
as I am sitting on the top of the world 
I'm searching hard to find the reality I'm searching hard for something to say

Here I am floating round a heavenly place
I'm floating up above what is right and wrong hoping that this moment will stay 
as I am riding on the crest of a wave 
I'm riding through the realms of reality the search is ending now I can feel

Fighting every step of the way hurting at the break of the day
waiting for the moment to last knowing that the future has passed

Fighting every step of the way hurting at the break of the day
waiting for the moment to last knowing that the future has passed

I can hear you now the pain has gone
the boat's arrived my sacred choice his master's voice 
I don't need you now the pain has gone 
I give to you my sacred choice his master's voice

Take my hand walk with me and never let go
walk with me into my reality

14. ENIGMA
Various performers: Various sounds.

1. WITHIN THIS WORLD WITHIN MY MIND
Wonderful the afterglow
Softly falls the touch of snow 
Silently the distant call 
Shadows cast the mighty wall

Heroes hide heroes fall
Lament the cry defy the call 
A life to save a life to find 
Within this world within my mind

I hear your voice
I hear you call 
I hear you cry 
Within this world within my mind

Quietly their numbers grew
A precious child amongst the few 
A time to fly a time to find 
Within this world within my mind

I see (in the light) your hopes
I see (in the light) your dreams 
I see (in the light) you shine 
Within this world within my mind

Promises that once were made
Eternal hope the echoes fade 
Wonderful the shining light 
Darkness hails the dead of night

Soaring birds on silvered wings
Rising up the angel sings 
A life to save a life so kind 
Within this world within my mind

2. NOW THANK THE BEES
Now take some honey with instant coffee
Some cheddar cheese now thank the bees 
Now throw a party (no money when she came) 
And catch a book (sweet honey was her name) 
Then sail the seas (she'll never hear them say) 
Now thank the bees (so clever now they play)

A time in wars and worlds are we
A thought a way can never be

Now watch some weather then hide away
Walk on your knees now thank the bees 
Now buy a monkey (stop talking walk on by) 
And call him Steve (my monkey alibi) 
Then pay the fees (still waiting time to say) 
Now thank the bees (no faking not today)

A terrible man a terrible face
The beautiful chaos the ugly space

Now ride a horse then learn to drive
Don't lose your keys now thank the bees 
Now sing a song (hey sugar let it be) 
Don't make it long (keep talking can't you see) 
Then hug the trees (start watching then you'll know) 
Now thank the bees (keep walking time to go)

The lazy boy never seen
The crazy toy now kill the queen

3. I AM YOUR STALKER
Pictures of heaven sent lusty glazed eyes torment
shadows of night hails the dawn 
Paper weight stains of the soothing remains 
and the whispers of light splattered walls 
Finding my way through the glint of the day 
and the rushing bell over tones 
Still hold the key to the place by the sea 
and the far flung filthy fed

I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker

And they search for the bay where we both hide away 
as they restlessly hunt through the rain 
And the pale mountain cries as the tears from its eyes 
start to gather and drive us away 
But they won't find their way can you hear what I say 
as i'm holding your hand next to mine 
As we jump from the moon we'll be singing as soon 
as the echoes and flickering fade

I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker 


4. OBSESSIVE REPULSIVE
Waking wonder falling under
Call me obsessive repulsive

Scary faces wacky races
Call me obsessive repulsive

Golden horses special forces
Call me obsessive repulsive

Empty cases far flung places
Call me obsessive repulsive

5. BARON PAIN
Baron pain
Burning rain 
Shallow minds

Is it the tranquil and calm before the oncoming storm
The peaceful serenity hurts

Broken Dreams
Silent screams 
Wasted days

Is it the tranquil and calm before the oncoming storm
The peaceful serenity hurts

6. MOON MONKEY
He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
and he doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school 
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do 
but we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue

The empty space

So you fly to the right of the infinite well
passed the hole in the wall and the sanity bell 
And as you soar through the stars with the greatest of ease 
you'll find the freak of the skies in the planet of cheese

He is a monkey
A little monkey

He's green he smells he acts like a God
and the cross in his eyes makes him look kind of odd 
As he walks he struts with a manner of hate 
towards the blind and the weak who pass through his gate

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high 
We're flying in the sky 
We're flying in the sky 
We're flying so high 
We're flying in the sky

So if you choose to ignore what is waiting for you
at the end of the line then I'll give you a clue 
He's a fiend with a mind that will feast on the pure 
but seek the chimp of the skies and your pain will endure

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high 
We're flying in the sky 
We're flying in the sky 
We're flying so high 
We're flying in the sky

He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
He doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school 
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do 
But we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue

7. LETTERS TO GRACE
My lonely heart
My lonely mind 
My empty space is all you'll find 
My time to sing 
My time to cry 
For those who give 
For those who try

An open book
An open mind 
My empty space is all you'll find 
My lonely world 
My chosen few 
My empty hope 
I'll wait for you

Stolen words are all I have to say I care to say I care
Maybe some day I'll find love 
Maybe some day I'll find love 
And I won't look back 
And I won't look back 
And I love you 
And I love you

8. MY IMMORTAL FOOL
My immortal fool
My immortal fool 
My immortal fool 
My immortal fool

I live for the day when the boat finds its way
and the light shining bright fades away 
And still I remain with the fading terrain 
of the pictures my mind fails to see

My immortal fool
My immortal fool 
My immortal fool 
My immortal fool

9. THE SLIPPER THAT MOVED
Is anybody there?
Creeping on the stair

Mr happy, faulty dreamers, pleasure crew and the whale
Tiny horses, minty sauces, frosty fools, disarray 
The sight of a silver stone beware of the danger zone 
The slipper that moved

Is anybody there?
Creeping on the stair

Sandy shelters, helter skelters, flappy dance, buzzy bee
Smiley faces, sunny places, oyster schools, bird of prey 
The sound of a wonky wheel but never to seal the deal 
The slipper that moved

10. JETPACK LABYRINTH
The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth

When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves 
When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves

The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth

When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves
When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves

11. ORIGINS
Within this world (no they don't hold back)
Within my mind (out of the furious inferno) 
Within this world (like a cavorting colossus) 
Within my mind (into the deafening silence)

Home my heart will find you
Home my heart will take you 
Home my heart will stay alone

Through the night
Through the dark 
I'll find you I'll find you

Within this world (infinity passed)
Within this world (infinity passed) 
Within this world

12. I SAW A GHOST
I saw a ghost of you smiling as you used to do
The moment I call you walk through the wall

I hear your voice so true tell me what I have to do
The message you gave I'll take to the grave

My song will stay with you this is what I like to do
A drop of your tear and then I'll appear

13. WAIT FOR THE MOON
When will we meet again and say our goodbyes
Watching your shooting star you can't go far

When will you touch the sky to see me again
Hoping you hear me now I don't know how

Wait for the moon shining above the sky
Shining amongst the stars

Time for sleep
Time for sleep
Time for sleep 
Time for sleep

14. ENIGMA

 

1. RESURRECTION
Into the darkness 
Out of the light 
Time for the healing 
Time for the fight

2. HAMLET OF FIRE
Cold hamlet of fire 
Pray unto the liar 
Wise echoes of stone 
Face demons alone

Cold Hamlet so near 
Breathe into your fear 
Taste fortunes of soul 
Time savours the toll

The waves of heat and dust 
The tomb of love and trust 
The dues of life to pay 
Then rage against the day

The fall of beauty mild 
The grace of creatures wild 
The humble man so proud 
We burn within the shroud

3. DON'T CALL ME DEIRDRE
A symphony of war 
As gallant as before 
So shy he rescues her then rides into the night 
A name he calls aloud but he doesn't get it right

Don't call me Deirdre 
Don't call me Deirdre

The spoils of courtship bring 
A bride who wears his ring 
His life the sacrifice he gives his love so true 
To whom he wonders though as her beauty hides no clue

Don't call me Deirdre 
Don't call me Deirdre

Eternity no more 
The demise of love so pure 
Her soul she visits him and haunts his open mind 
Her name she searches hard but cannot seem to find

Don't call me Deirdre 
Don't call me Deirdre

4. END OF DAYS
So sad her eyes 
Hiding dark skies 
Gentle feeling soothing healing

In the heat in the haze 
As they face end of days 
Love grows strong and heals the pain

Softly spoken spirits broken 
So sad she cries 
Fighting goodbyes

As the glow of the light 
Starts to fade into night 
Love grows strong and heals the pain

5. TELL ME
How can it be you are so good to me 
Show me the things that you see please show me 
Why do I need more than you give to me 
Tell me the answers I crave now tell me

How can it be we were so strong in love 
Show me the way that you cared please show me 
Why do we fall why do we drift away 
Tell me the answers I crave now tell me

How can it be we lost the love we shared 
Show me the way that we were please show me 
Why do I cry why do I shed my tears 
Tell me the answers I crave now tell me

6. THE DEEP
Searching the burnt horizon 
Sailing towards the storm 
Facing the deep survival 
Chasing the dreams away

Breaking away for a moment 
Taking the feeling away 
Finding the deep blue sea calling 
Hiding away in the calm

Hearing the pale arrival 
Teasing the ocean calms 
Echoes of blind confusion 
Shaking then overthrown

Breaking away for a moment 
Taking the feeling away 
Finding the deep blue sea calling 
Hiding away in the calm

7. DARK SCRAWLS
Fortune teller bible seller paper cups of gold 
Angel hearts and mushroom tarts love stories left untold

The night falls 
The dark scrawls 
The moon glows 
The star shows

Silent caller midnight trawler sailing out to sea 
Foghorn-leghorn kittens newborn home in time for tea

The night falls 
The dark scrawls 
The moon glows 
The star shows

Shadows moving feelings proving they are lords to be 
Rainbow flowers Alton Towers still can't rescue me

The night falls 
The dark scrawls 
The moon glows 
The star shows

Mornings broken blackbird's spoken leaves stir in the breeze 
Rich man poor man blind man now can see the woods for trees

8. HERMAN THE HERMIT
Hermon the hermit he rides on the crest of silver doves 
He glides over silky moonlit folds 
as he glances at the kooks who know his name 
Hermon the hermit he rides over fountains in the sky 
He flies into battle as he shakes off the rattle of the thunder and the rain

9. ANGELS FROWN
Angel's song holding on silent days changing ways 
They can hear distant fear we fall down angels frown

10. SIRENS
Sirens wake to kiss the fallen child 
Shrouded baneful feasting on the wild 
Sirens call to those who seek the cure 
Latent cryptic feasting on the pure

11. BRING ME HOME
Sail out to sea 
Blue calm and free 
Cold winter due 
Still searching for you

Hear me 
Hold me 
Take me 
Bring me home

12. INTO THE LIGHT
Into the darkness 
Out of the light 
Time for the healing 
Time for the fight

No time for healing 
No cause to fight 
Out of the darkness 
Into the light

WE ALL FALL DOWN

1. DAME GOTHEL
In the clearing stands a maiden with golden hair, 
Looking through the pane 
Caged in a fortress, song unsung 
Lonely as a skylark, old and young

Gently, she unfolds her locks tumbling down 
Freely, on the ground 
As they shine like starlight 
Burnished gold 
Will he see her, as they toll

There’s a prince who’s lost in love with his Queen 
How he wants her so 
As he climbs the turret, his pulse begins to race 
Longing to see her, on his face

Step by step, his hopes arise numbing pain 
Pulling on her mane 
Glad in his ascension, he springs into her arms 
Bony little fingers, he’s fallen for her charms.

In the wood had burned a heart in a sordid frame, barren and alone 
When she saw him climbing, she stormed along the path 
Casting her enchantment, the trees recoiled her wrath

Oh she loved the child she cared with good intent 
Cruelty well meant 
Snipping with her scissors, the steel reflects her eyes 
Scheming with vengeance, he doesn’t seem surprised…

2. FALLEN ANGEL
Who is that man in the glass 
A shadow leaving the scene 
Fears of what comes to pass 
The wrinkles etched in between

He traces the caverns betraying his fear

So his future is passed 
The crooked man became wise 
He sought solace at last 
The waif and stray in his eyes

He traces the caverns betraying his fear

She is the heart he craved 
He is the shape she took 
His body enslaved 
From just a glint of a look

He feels her his lover his saviour his spy

He joins in song 
Her voice is hollow in air 
Past memory of wrong 
Perhaps she never was there

3. PALACE OF GOLD
Palace of gold pierces the clouds 
Breaking the point of air 
Dancing away, glittering crowds 
Chattering on the air

There is a prince, dancing alone; holding his own. 
Scarlet and emerald his slippers; tapping, spinning round 
He can’t betray the look on his face; the waltz that claws him round and round.

Palace of gold pierces the clouds 
Breaking the point of air

My how they fly skimming the floor 
Perfume that fills the air 
Hollow his eye, wanting no more 
Still they hold him there

They never cease, making him dance; as in a trance 
But as his feet keep on dancing – swiftly to the grave 
Skeletal sigh expiring a smile, and 
Just a pool of sweat remains

My how they fly skimming the floor 
Perfume that fills the air

They never cease, making him dance; as in a trance 
But as his feet keep on dancing – swiftly to the grave 
Skeletal smile expiring a smile, and 
Just a pool of sweat remains

My how they fly skimming the floor 
Perfume that fills the air

4. BLACKOUT
(Robert Johnson found the edge)

Beauty rubs at her nose as she softly, sweetly sleeps 
Snoring, batting the fireflies and purring, whistling dreams

Acrobats, talking hats 
Dragon’s wings, purple things

Falling, grasping the branch that she’ll never, ever break 
Screaming, quells the desire that she’ll never, ever wake

Beauty chases the dragons that fall in soldier’s lines 
High tops, mushrooms and hills that float gently way behind

Red balloons, paper moons 
Angry thighs, ardent sighs

Silent, hoping and praying she’ll never, ever wake..

5. ASCENSION DEFICIT
I do go where I know 
They will see fire

Come fly with me near my ride 
Don't get far high

6. RED
Wind teasing at the leaves 
Light through the smoke of rain 
The girl wanders down the path 
Green underneath her red

Too late, late to warn her now 
Who can say what evil lurks in there?

Wind snatching at the leaves 
Rain clouding out the light 
A girl standing all alone 
The breeze crying out her name

Too late, late to warn her now 
Who can say what evil lurks in there?

Wind snatching at the leaves 
Rain clouding out the light 
A girl standing all alone 
The breeze crying out her name

7. CINDERELLA
Her feet smelled like wine 
The sole was an open book 
Footsteps along the floor 
Pitter and patter here 
Can she be over there? 
Pattering on the stair?

Arch moist and soft 
Caressing the dewy grass 
How can I bear the weight? 
How could I make her stay? 
Maybe she’ll never go 
If I cut off her toe…

8. FREUD PLAYS BAD NOISE

9. JOURNEY'S END
This is the journey’s end 
And our love we send 
Though we could pretend – it might extend 
This is the end

Now you may close your ears 
You may wipe your tears 
You can allay your fears 
That this would last a couple of years

The prince has kissed 
The point’s been missed 
The battle’s done and won 
The ship has sailed 
The coffin’s nailed 
Now, join in with this song...

This is the story’s end 
So we make amends… 
We hope we don’t offend 
With rhymes that drive you round the bend

This is the long goodbye 
You may breathe a sigh 
And though you want to cry, do dry your eye 
The end is nigh

The die is cast 
The moment’s passed 
The bell has surely tolled 
The book’s been read 
It’s time for bed 
We’ve grown a little old

10. WE ALL FALL DOWN
