Death II
Oh uh-uh-uh oh
Hey oh now the lonely nights begin and there is nowhere left to go
But watch my spirit melt away, down at the d-i-s-c-o
I must have died a thousand times
The next day, I was still alive
And I still believe in you
Yes I do
Let's do it now
No I was not crushed, I did not cry
You know that everything's o.k.
It's just sometimes I wake at night
All alone and see your face
Oh, thousands feel the same but the night-time falls away
Oh no but still sometimes I feel oh sometimes I feel like jesus christ now
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is just o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now
I'd run away
Oh run away now
O.k. now
Alright you can go out and make love to whoever, or whatever you like babe
So I go out and fill my eyes with other women
Oh they look good to me and I think that I might kiss them
Oh now it's two a.m. and I'm still stood here waiting
So I go home and wonder why I bother going
Yeah every week turns out the same the sun, the wind, the snow, the rain
Oh no but still sometimes I feel
Oh sometimes I feel like jesus christ now
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is just o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now I'd run away
I can't believe it
I can't remember your face anymore or the sound of your voice
Or any touch of your skin is a legend
By the way, did I tell you that I loved you?
Oh if I didn't I'm so sorry
You know I i really, I really meant to tell you it's o.k. there's no need to hurry
But the bed is full of memories, full of memories of you
Oh I've tried to get them out but but there's nothing I can do
Oh if I knew the moon I'd ask him
Shine his light in through your window and send your body home to me today
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now
I'd run away
Run away run away.back to top
Death Goes to the Disco
Tonight's the night
Open your door and I'll come inside
Don't be afraid, it will be alright
I will change your whole life tonight
And you're so beautiful
Too beautiful for this dead-end world
I'm taking you to a better place
Oh, far away from this stupid race, oh

Come with me
For ever
And ever
Please come with me
For ever
No, don't let me down
Oh, don't make me cry
Lie in my arms
And be mine tonight
Do it

Oh, did I tell you
There was no need to be afraid?
Oh, you've got such a beautiful body
Oh, you'll make such a beautiful body
I smoke these yellow-lit cul-de-sacs at night
You hear my foot-step on your bedroom stair
And I will take the first one in every house in town
I'll take your sisters and I'll lay them down
I'll lay them down
Tonight

Mother (mother)
Father (father)
Brother (brother)
Take them all

Make you mine
I want your body

Mother (mother)
Father (father)
Brother (brother)
The wind (the wind)
Streets (streets)
Those girls (girls)
I walked into town (town) (town).back to top
Countdown
[single intro: 'keep very still, for the strangest things are about to happen.']

Oh I was seventeen when I heard the countdown start, it started slowly
And I thought it was my heart but then I realised
That this time it was for real there was no place to hide
I had to go out and feel, but there was time to kill
And so i, I walked my way around town I tried to love the world
Oh but the world just got me down and so I looked for you
In every street of every town I wanted to see your face
I wanna I wanna see you now
I wanna see you now
Oh and so it went
Oh so it went for several years I couldn't stand it
No oh it must be getting near now that you just don't know
Oh no you, you just don't understand how many people have seen you
In the arms of, of of some other man
I've got to meet you and find you and take you by the hand oh my God my god
You've got to understand that I was seventeen
I didn't I didn't know a thing at all
I've got no reason I've got no reason at all
Oh no the time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon then
Oh and it could it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room no)
Oh I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
Oh and the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna leave this town
Goodbye o.k.
Yeah you can leave me
Oh you, you can go some other place
You can't forget it
Yeah you know, you know that's o.k.
'cos, 'cos I own this town
Yeah, yeah I brought it to it's knees
Can you hear it crying? can you?
Can you hear it begging to me 'please? '
I know it's coming so soon now oh, oh it's on it's way
Oh no oh no oh I can hear them say, they say I can't survive
They say i, I'll never leave the ground
They say it's all a lie and now and now it's coming down
Oh baby now
Time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon now
Oh and it could oh it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room now)
Oh oh oh
I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
Oh and the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna go gonna be there

Bub-bye it's o.k.
You don't have to care
Really oh, oh really, I swear
No, no you owe me nothing
You owe nothing to me
And if I messed it up baby
Then, that's all up to me
And if you go then, then I won't follow, no, no
'cos so many times I've been, I've been thinking maybe, oh maybe I should
No, i, I'm gonna stay

Oh, I'm gonna get on through babe

Oh, time of my life no I think you came too soon

Me and stars and moon are falling down.

My Legendary Girlfriend
You know sometimes...when we're lying together...
And I know you're asleep...i can hear the soft sound of your breathing...
So I get up...and I go to the window...outside...i can see all the houses...
Curtains shut tight against the night...asleep beneath the roof-tiles...
And as I stand here...i wonder...i wonder how many more times...
I'm gonna come here...i wonder how many more times...I'm gonna lie here...
And most of all...most of all I wonder...i wonder what it means...
I just wanna know what it means...so I woke her...
And we went walking through the sleeping town...
Down deserted streets...frozen gardens grey in the moonlight...
Fences...down to the canal...
Creeping slowly past the cooling towers...
Deserted factories...looking for an adventure...
I wandered the streets calling your name...jumping walls...
Hoping to see a light in the window...let me in...
Let me come in...let me in tonight...
Oh I see you shivering in the garden...
Silver goose-flesh in the moonlight ...she's balancing...
There are so many others...with unbroken eyes...
No cellulite afternoons... and she is balancing...
Balancing on the edge of ugliness tonight...
She is balancing...

Good god!
My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold,
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.

Jump...touch my hair...i wanna...i don't care...cos tonight...we could,
Maybe we...maybe we can touch the sky...do you think that we can...
Do you think that we can...touch the sky...please...i know...
I know it's not forever...but tonight I don't care...
Your skin so pale in the moonlight...
And the way your lips swell up when you're asleep...
Nothing else matters...do you know how much I want you? ...
Can you feel how much I want you? ...
Oh
Pitsmoor woman
Oh let
Oh let me in tonight

My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold.
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.
And all the stars came out tonight,
And the moon came on it's face,
It shone right though the clothes she wore,
It shone right through the dress she wore.
Good god

Oh, y'know...listen...listen...please...oh...i just wanna...
I just wanna... ...he falls to sleep again...no cheese tonight...she knows

My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold.
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.
And all the stars came out tonight,
And the moon came on it's face.
It shone right through the dress she wore,
It shone right through the clothes she wore.
And the stars and the moon,
And the stars all came down today.
Oh please love me tonight
Good God now!back to top

This House Is Condemned
He's in a room
He sees the floor
He sees the wall
He sees the roof
He sees the door
It's nine thirty-eight
So he goes up to the door and he finds himself in another room identical to the one before
The clock still reads nine thirty-eight
So he goes out of that room, but he finds himself in a parallel room
A mirror image of the one before
He hits the floor
He hits the wall
He hits the door
He hits the door
The clock reads nine thirty-eight
He throws it at the roof
He breaks a hole
He climbs out
He sees the moon
He sees the stars
He sees the sky
The stars are small lightbulbs set in a black cardboard dome
He climbs out
He sees the stars, he sees the sky
The stars are small lightbulbs set in a black cardboard dome
He hits the floor
He hits the wall
He hits the roof
He hits the dome
He hits the dome
Condemned this house this house is
This house is
Is this house
This house
Is this house
Fill in housing form
Buy one clock
Time again
Sort housing papers
Still nine thirty-eight
Two thousand years from now it will still be ticking
He hits the floor
Wall, roof, door
The clock reads nine thirty-eight
He hits the dome
Door, wall
Space, floor
Time
He sees the moon
He sees the stars for some romantic reason
Space, dome, door, wall, clockface
Space, time, place, floor, wall, door, roof
This is one small step for mankind one giant leap for man
Ten nine eight seven six five four three two one zero
We have lift-off
He takes the clock, he breaks the dome, he sees the moon, he sees the stars
He sees the sky, he sees the earth for some romantic reason
He takes the clock, he breaks the dome, he sees the moon, he sees the stars
He sees the sky, he sees the earth
Space, time, place, condensed
Space, time, place, condemned
This is house is
This house is
This house is condemned
This house is
This house is
This house is condemned.back to top
Love Is Blind
Give me the city
Give me the sea
Give to me everything I need
The future is shining like a giant metal beast
It shines so bright tonight with it's legs open wide and love is blind
Falls in love with itself again like it never should the way it always can and she is mine
But the world is much bigger now
Oh tell me should I hold her hand and give her love or take her heart and throw it far
Away?
Oh now is the time to jump into it all
I'll just hold my nose and try not to fall
To seek and to find instead of walking around with eyes glued to the sky
I turn them down to the ground
Oh and I used to think that maybe one day I'd find the love of my life
Oh but it's so far away
Oh I don't know why
Oh but i
I want it all tonight and love is blind
Falls in love with itself again like it never should the way it always can
Oh and she is mine but the world is so much bigger now
Oh tell me should I hold her hand and give her love or take her heart and throw it far
Away?
We held hands and we looked out of the bedroom window
We could see all the buildings collapsing around us
So we kissed and we laid on the bed and we waited for the ceiling to fall in
But it never did
In the morning it was all still there
The spilled milk and the dog-turds in that grey ashtray morning light
I could hear thousands of people and they were all singing this song: la lala lala...
Hey butcher!
Oh, oh, oh hey butcher!
What's your name?
Oh hey butcher, what's your game?
Ah, you take all their love and you suck out their eyes and then you rip out their hearts
And you eat their insides
Yeah, then you just walk away with a smile on your face
Hey butcher, hey butcher
I've seen your face before
La ladadow da lalala...
And love is blind.back to top
The Mark of the Devil
The mark of the devil is upon you
Your look is no happier than mine
Damnation is waiting in the mirror but you shouldn't mind
Their legs start a feeling in your stomach
Their eyes knock you backwards with a glance
Your pride sinks unnoticed in the river given half a chance
And your past is just a bedroom full of implements of cruelty
And a list will bind your eyes as you grow old
But you want to join the laughter sharing simple shreds of feeling
But you fidget and your heart is growing cold
Smiles left unfollowed start to haunt you
Chances that perished long ago
The devil is waiting in the bathroom with your worthless soul
The years pull their weight down on your cheekbones
The nights out are hanging from your waist
The years float like dust held in the sunlight with an aftertaste
And your past is just a bedroom full of implements of cruelty
And a list will bind your eyes as you grow old
But you want to join the laughter sharing simple shreds of feeling
But you fidget and your heart is growing cold
La la lala lala la la...
And your past is just a bedroom full of implements of cruelty
And a list will bind your eyes as you grow old
And you want to join the laughter sharing simple shreds of feeling
But you fidget and your heart is growing cold
And your past is justa bedroom full of implements of cruelty
And a list will bind your eyes as you grow old
And you want to join the laughter sharing simple shreds of feeling
But you fidget and your heart is growing cold
La la lala... oh...back to top
Master of the Universe
I am the master of this universe and I've got so big it hurts
Raise your eyes and graze your knees
Oh for your master is displeased, because you dared to doubt his word
His polished surface dulls and cracks
Your bitter laughter breaks his back
I am the master of this universe
I taught you everything you know
Now you must bear your master's curse
Oh for I will not let you go
Now you must walk this town 'til dawn in every public open place
Your master's look upon your face
Oh now look what you have done
You've spoilt it all for everyone
The master vegetates alone in a corner of your home
You feed him scraps when in the mood
You beat him hard and keep him nude
You cut your master down to size
Now he cries and he cries now
Lalalalala lalala...
And now he begs both night and day
He lets you take him on your knee
He keeps on losing consciousness, he dearly loves his new mistress
Now he repeats it every night
Every night on point of death
'you are the master of this universe'
Now he cries and he cries now
'you are the master of the universe
You are the master of the universe
You are the master of the universe
You are the master of the universe!'back to top
