Love in Itself
All of these insurmountable tasks
That lay before me
All of the firsts and the definite lasts
That lay in store for me

There was a time
When all on my mind was love
Now I find that most of the time
Love's not enough in itself

Consequently, I've a tendency to be unhappy
You see the thoughts in my head
All the words that were said
All the blues and the reds get to me

There was a time
When all on my mind was love
Now I find that most of the time
Love's not enough in itself

All of these absurdities
That lay before us
All of the doubts and the certainties
That lay in store for us

There was a time
When all on my mind was love (love love love)
Now I find that most of the time
Love's not enough in itselfback to top
More Than a Party
Lots of surprises in store
This isn't a party it's a whole lot more

We've had enough of this blind man's bluff
You've kept us in the dark for long enough
This is more than a party

Keep telling us we're to have fun
Then take all the ice cream so we've got none
This is more than a party

The failed magician waves his wand
And in an instant the laughter's gone
This is more than a party

Lots of surprises in store
This isn't a party it's a whole lot more
More than a partyback to top
Pipeline
Here down the crane construction time again
What is for this time
We're laying on a pipeline
Let the beat so sweat flow to the end of manlove
Would take a long time
Working on a pipeline
Taking from the greedy and giving to the needed

All missed gold, can take
Words can sent our way
But could not survive time
Working on a pipeline
From the heart of the land
To the mountain of the men
Must reach you sometime
We're laying on a pipeline
Taking from the greedy and giving to the neededback to top
Everything Counts
The handshake
Seals the contract
From the contract
There's no turning back
The turning point
Of a career
In korea, being insincere
The holiday
Was fun packed
The contract
Still intact

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The graph
On the wall
Tells the story
Of it all
Picture it now
See just how
The lies and deceit
Gained a little more power
Confidence
Taken in
By a sun tan
And a grin

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
Everything counts in large amountsback to top
Two Minute Warning
We're lying by the orange sky
Two million miles across the land
Scattered to the highest high
Expect they'll either laugh or cry

No sex, no consequence, no sympathy
You're good enough to eat

Two minute warning
Two minutes later
When time has come
My days are numbered

The dawning of another year
Marks time for those who understand
One in four still here
While you and I go hand in hand

No radio, no sound, no sin, no sanctuary
So welcome to your last

Two minute warning
Two minutes later
When time has come
My days are numbered

The sun, the solitude, the cemetery
So welcome to your last

Two minute warning
Two minutes later
When time has come
My days are numberedback to top
Shame
Do you ever get that feeling
When the guilt begins to hurt?
Seeing all the children
Wallowing in dirt
Crying out with hunger
Crying out in pain
At least the dirt will wash off
When it starts to rain

Soap won't wash away your shame

Do you ever get the feeling
That something isn't right?
Seeing your brother's fist
Clenched ready for the fight
Soon the fighting turns to weapons
And the weapons turn to wounds
So the doctor's stitch and stitch and stitch
And stitch and stitch and stitch and stitch

Surgery won't improve your pain

It all seems so stupid
It makes me want to give up
But why should I give up
When it all seems so stupid?

Do you ever get the feeling
That something can't be done?
To eradicate these problems
And make the people one
Do you ever get that feeling
Something like a nagging itch?
And all the while the doctors stitch
And stitch and stitch and stitch and stitch

Hope alone won't remove the stains (for shame)

It all seems so stupid
It makes me want to five up
But why should I give up
When it all seems so stupid?back to top
The Landscape Is Changing
The landscape is changing, the landscape is crying
Thousand of acres of forest are dying
Carbon copies from the hills above the forestline
Acid streams are flowing ill across the countryside

'cause I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the world
I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the world

Now we're rearranging there's no use denying
Mountains and valleys can't you hear them sighing?
Evolution, the solution, almost certainty
Can you imagine this intrusion of their privacy?

'cause I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the world
I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the world

Token gestures, some semblance of intelligence
Can we be blamed for the security of ignorance

'cause I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the world
I don't care if you're going nowhere
Just take good care of the worldback to top
Told You So
And do those feet in modern times
Walk upon the flowers and
Walk upon their brothers while their
Heads are busy lying low
Trying to keep to cover, oh

Something went wrong along the way
Everybody's waiting for judgment day
So they can go told you so
They can go told you so

Bring me my gun of itching desire
Bring me my bullets and I will fire
Sights set higher than the tall church spire

Something went wrong along the way
Everybody's waiting for judgment day
So they can go told you so
They can go told you so

Standing in line, the blind lead the blind
Waiting and waiting for an overdue sign
Brothers and sisters playing chinese whispers
If things aren't suited then they'll get diluted

Here's one more dead with a hole in his head
He shouldn't have said all the things he said
Many tears were shed for the blood he bled

Something went wrong along the way
Everybody's waiting for judgment day
So they can go told you so
They can go told you soback to top
And Then...
Let's take a map of the world
Tear it into pieces
All of the boys and the girls
Will see how easy it is

To put it all down and start again
From the top to the bottom and then
I'll have faith, or I prefer
To think that things couldn't turn out worse

All that we need at the start's
Universal revolution (that's all)
And if we trust in our hearts
We'll find the solution's

To put it all down and start again
From the top to the bottom and then
I'll have faith, or I prefer
To think that things couldn't turn out worse

Took a plane across the world
Got in a car
And when I reached my destination
I hadn't gone far

Let's take the whole of the world
The mountains and the sand
Let all the boys and the girls
Shape it in their hands

To put it all down and start again
From the top to the bottom and then
I'll have faith, or I prefer
To think that things couldn't turn out worseback to top
Everything Counts
Everything Counts

The handshake
Seals the contract
From the contract
There's no turning back
The turning point
Of a career
In Korea, being insincere
The holiday
Was fun packed
The contract
Still intact

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The graph
On the wall
Tells the story
Of it all
Picture it now
See just how
The lies and deceit
Gained a little more power
Confidence
Taken in
By a sun tan
And a grin

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
Everything counts in large amounts
