Walk In The Shadows
What? You say you're through with me.
I'm not through with you.
We've had what others might call love.
You say it's over now, what's done, what's through?
You can't stay away, you need me, I need you.
When the fire starts the pain's too much for your mind.
You need attention, what's good is only mine.
I can cure the hunger that burns in your heart.
Just come to me I'll take you home.
We'll walk in the shadows by day we'll live in a dream,
we'll walk in the shadows.
You say you don't feel safe
alone tonight 'cause you feel the pressure building in your head.
Our secret's safe for one more night
but when the morning comes remember I'll be with you.
We'll walk in the shadows
By day we'll live in a dream
We'll walk in the shaodws
One day you'll be with me if only you believeback to top
A Dream In Infra Red
As you woke this morning and opened up your eyes
did you notice the tear-stains lining your face were mine.
Don't you wonder, can't you see what's happening to our lives?
I can't keep living this masquerade
when my lonely eyes see only your face at night.

* I only see in infra red, I can't dream anymore
Can't you see I need too (to)
I can't stand the pain
You've gathered ame kind of lunatic but I know what to do with it.
It's plain as black and white.
I'm like a hungry criminal and your protection is minimal, so minimal.back to top
The Killing Words
Wait for me I'll understand I just need time to comprehend your changes.
There's always been these changes in you.
I remember there was a time when fears
we had we left behind and we danced but it seems the more we learn.
We learn that it's
* Over, Over, it's dangerous this game we play
You're killing me with words
Forget if you can the way you moved when our hands touched.
You forced me to force you.
Do you remember the dreams. the nightmares we shared?
The poison of love so pure,
it's deceiveing and deceit is all we have it's got to be over
Over,Over, too late to take a chance again it's overback to top
Surgical Strike
It's lonely in the field that we send our fighters to wander.
They leave with minds of steel.
It's their training solution.
We've programmed the way,
it leads us to order, there's no turning back.
* Surgical Strike - we've taught them not to feel
performance is their task
A Surgical Strike
its time is arriving now for you
The plan for the day will be swift as the lighting they harness.
The atom display isn't mindless illusion.
At master control, assessment will not be by humans -
there's no turning back.

Neue Regel
Reach for a new horizon, setting sights on a circuit scream.
Hall the new arrival on.
Static signs from a distant wanderer fill the air,
nights are never seen.
Face the electric time shock now.
No it's not a dream anymore.
I'll light the way for us to find,
order of a new kind.
Join us on the stay the road is mine.
Poets line in a rhyme of silence
gathered from the winter air warms the children's eyes
they see the time is near for the signs.
I can hear the chimes ringing for you, for me.
I can see your eyes, your hands joining with me,
I can feel its time.
Come together hold the light,
keep the flame we can't let this world remain the same.
I can hear the chimes ringing for you, for me,
I can see your eyes, your hands joining with me.
I can feel it's time, it's time for the world to hear Neue Regel is here.back to top
CHEMICAL YOUTH (We Are Rebellion)
Lead me - the leftist cry as the right subsides.
Hear me - the media mouth is open wide.
Save me - success is our hunger we need to feed.
Free me - we'll not lose to their anarchy!
We're your leaders - we're rebellion! Aural supremists.
We're rebellion! We're future!
Show me - the wave of eighties is #3.
Praise me - our religion is technology.
Help me - for the cause. Would you cross that line?
We're rebellion! Chemical youth scream.
We're rebellion.
If we don't stand together we stand to lose the future.
Peace won't last forever,
who will be the martyr you or me?
We can be the future, you and I the leaders, help me!
If we don't stand together we stand to lose the future.
We're the last hope..but there's danger.back to top
It was November 4th I last held your hand.
It seemed our time would last forever.
You said don't ever leave,
I thought you'd never go.
I wish I could just remember your name...
You're just a memory now like all the ones before but with your pain I've had to suffer.
Your eyes all night with flame as the picture burns.
I hear the screams from long ago.
They cry remember, blood-red streakes on velvet throats at night.
The streetlights fanned our trail of fame through
London, London, the memories will never leave me
London, London, all I see is you
London, London, the cries in the night keep bringing me to London,
London calling out to me
Oh, there's some things in life I could never face,
the worst is being alone.
Sometimes I wish I could have taken your place my love.
You know I don't want to live forever.
Oh, let me see you standing in the shadows once again.
We'll walk the streets like long ago in
London, London, the fire in your eyes will be bringing me to
London, London, all I need is you. The cries in the night keep ringing on in
London, London, calling out to you

All my secrets and I don't know who I am.
I even feel alone when you're near 'cause you'll nevr understand.
When the first met I must have seemed a million miles away.
It's strange how our lives have touched but the time is right.
I'll leave tonight, don't look in my eyes 'cause you've never seen them so black.

The Whisper
Cries from the aisles the tolling of the judgement bell.
Eyes watched the violence,
the absence of those who have seen,
marks the faith of the spell.
Cold is the viper stalking the night for the heat.
It must find, time is the promise delivered with stunning consistency.
Line after line, time after time, the innocent victim awaits...
* Please take my hand, don't be afraid.
I'm your master you're my slave.
Voices are calling me back, back to the day.
Footsteps had followed me faster...listen
Screams from a new love,
the passion was burning,
it singed in a stare.
Free under the night sun.
The fear of the hunger will always be there in my mind.
Time after time the morning will close a new page.
Follow the impulse you have.
I'll show you the way.
Forget what you've learned in the past now.
Listen and...back to top
Gonna Get Close To You
I like to look at shadows sweating on the wall.
I get excited when I hear footsteps in the hall.
Outside your balcony I have a room with a view and I'm watching you.
I dial your telephone each and every afternoon.
I wait by your door till you're asleep
at night and when you're alone I know when you turn out the light.
* I'm gonna get close to you.Oh-oh, so close to you
I'm gonna get close to you
I'm gonna get close
You fumble for your keys.
I'm six or seven steps behind you,
I'm so close to you.
Are you terrified of me?
What do I know about you, how did I find out?
You think I'm a fool or maybe some kind of lunatic.
Say I'm wasting my time but I know what to do with it,
it's as plain as black and white.
*/ Oh, so close
If you knew my infinite charm there'd be no reason to be so alarmed.
Maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm right.
Maybe I'm soback to top
Screaming In Digital
I'm the beat of your pulse,
the computer word made flesh.
We're one you and I, we're versions of the same.
When you can see what I feel don't turn your
back on me or you might find that your dreams are only program cards.
Your mind is open for me, open for intake of all propaganda.
Your eyes see now what to see.
My eyes see only the programs you give me.
I'll teach you to laugh and to cry,
they're really the same you'll see.
All of the 's in your life.
Are you under my control, feed me more lines.
I'll try to tell you all I can before the light you must know what lies behind my screams.
I can't tell you all I know.
Am I the son that you've always been wanting?
There's more to me than what shows.
Are you my father, the one that was promised/
Hush now, I'll give all you need to know and pre-live your dreams for you,
you're a good boy.
Freedom belongs to only those without video screens for eyes and mouth.
You have no voice to be heard my son,
no one can hear when you're screaming in Digital.
I'm not your slave, you can't control my emotions.
No Father, please, let me keep learning.
Can't you see I'm human.
Can't you tell.
I'm not your slave.
Oh, Father, no, please, don't keep me from dreaming.
Oh can't someone hear!back to top
I Will Remember
There's a cold wind out tonight.
The chill of distant eyes.
An orbit survey finds...your mind.
* I will remember, you will remember
The star that came tonight...
There's a thought that fills your mind,
a vision of a time when knowledge
was confined and then we wonder how machines
can steal each others' dreams from points that are's real.
When you gaze at the evening sky
and you're reaching out with your mind
you might see the nation's eyes don't's you.
Oh can't you see the light of the knowing star.back to top
