Someone

Ruby says she does not dream
She says she's seen it all before
Outside the night is cold and wet
Don't know if we can take much more

Is there someone?
Someone?

She says:
Someone is calling,
Someone is calling for me
She says:
I got some feelings so different
No one else can see
She says
She says

Streets are empty every day
No longer can you see the sun
You're running home before the morning light
There is a new age that has just begun

Is there someone?
Someone?

She says:
Someone is calling,
Someone is calling for me
She says:
I got some feelings so distant
No one else can see
She says
She says

Life In A Day

Life In A Day
The price that you pay
For time that you spent
It's such a fatal event
Take a look at your watch
There is no time to wait
Take a look deep inside
There's no escape from this day

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Take a look around you
Is it true what they say
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Is there no place to hide
Could there be some other way

Can you see how they run
Do you believe what they say
They'll soon be looking for you
For sure they'll get you away
The premonition came true
Look all around and you'll see
Some say it takes two to know
Or could it all just be me

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
I love to see how they run
They came a running this way
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
No sence in looking for you
They're going to get you one day

Life In A Day
Life In A Day

Sad Affair

I called you last night
But I got no reply
There's something not right
By the look in your eye
Makes me laugh
To walk the path
So many pass this way
It's so unreal
I can't help but feel
I gotta wake you from this daze

Listen to a world of your own
You've got to leave me alone
Sweet mother calling up now
Don't want to speak to no fool
She say I got to look out
For I've got to find the jewels
I have some precious momements
Into the night I stare
To dream of something special
Ooh Another sad affair

When all your trust
Turns to dust
And you're lost for words to say
You've got so much more to see before
You turn to walk away
Listen to a world of your own
You've got to leave me alone.

Ooh another sad affair
Another sad affair
Ooh another sad affair
Another sad affair

It makes me laugh to walk this path
So many pass this way
It's so unreal
I can't help but feel
I gotta wake you from this daze

Listen...

All For You

I had a walk the other day
To meet someone I think you know
The air was cold
Skies were so grey
Somebody lay on the ground below

All For You
All For You
All For You

Came face to face
Felt so uneasy
Oh so confused as what's going on
Just could not move
Feel so affaid
Whisper the words
The words were said

All For You
All For You
All For You

Into the street
People can meet
Don't turn your back to the view
The silver blade can cut up your throat
I tell you now
'Cause I know it's true

All For You
All For You
All For You

I had to walk the other day
To meet someone
All For You

Pleasantly Disturbed

Black lines call out from his face
Oh his heart beats staccato pace
She says he's not killing time
I just don't want him for no friend of mine

Meanwhile Susan goes out all alone
So many reasons but they're not all her own
Bend till you break
Scream if you must
Someone's in her room
Someone she don't trust

Can you see me I'm in the lukewarm rain
Try so very hard
You know I just can't explain
Think of a colour
Tell me what you see
That colour's red
You can take it from me

Take it from me
Take it from me

I've seen the streetlights
Shine on the underground
I've heard the dead fight
When there's no other sound
I've seen the streetlights
Shine on the underground
I've heard the dead fight
When there's no other sound

Streetlight
Streetlight
Streetlight
Streetlight Sweetlight

No Cure

I see them walking
You know they're walking at night
Ohh in the dark you know
They're shining out so bright
Your sarky voices are gonna come on so near
As every picture becomes so clear

You
You come on so sharp
Yet be so nice
Tell me that you're so hot
But you're as cold as ice

There is no cure
You're so blind can't you see?
There is no cure
Can't buy no immunity
There is no cure
So keep your evil from me
There is no cure.

They like to stay
Ooh come on
Come on and stay up so late
You gonna talk of all the things you just wanna hate
You wanna come on
Come on
And make me so mad
Inside your heart
I know it feels so bad
You
You come on so sharp
Yet be so nice
Tell me that you're so hot
But you're as cold as ice

There is no cure
You're so blind can't you see?
There is no cure
Can't buy immunity
There is no cure
So keep your evil from me
There is no cure

Come on and do it
Just what to do it
They're going to do it
Just want to do it

There is no cure...

Chelsea Girl

And now the sound of time is getting fast
It's getting late
Don't know if I can take much more
The way you talk I often wondered
If I heard the words somewhere
Someplace before
I got so nervous when I called
And found that lately
You had gone and changed your name
But I've got something on my mind
I want you here
I want you now
You better explain

Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl
Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl

Your best friend never calls you up
But you don't mind
'Cause lately things are all the same
Ain't it strange how peope always seem
To know your face
But just don't know your name
Well I don't care there's no-one there
That even turn around and say get out of this place
Last night I saw a shooting star
When morning comes
She hides away
A real disgrace

Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl
Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl

Oh Chelsea Girl
You got me caught up in a whirl
I want you here now Chelsea Girl

Wasteland

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and just gone
Now it looks so dark and so cold
Think of the minds we sold
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

I can remember things that looked so bright
And I could talk to you without all this spite
Can you picture all that's past
Does your face deform so fast
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

`Cause when I stop and look into your head
I think of all the things that you said
When I look up into your eyes
I see the creature that I despise
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and gone
I've been wrong but you've been unkind
There's so much more that I can't find

Wasteland
Wasteland
Wasteland...

Destiny

Look at the world outside
Beware its evil tide
Too many endless days
Cold streets and alleyways
The poor come crawling out
They speak but never shout
I think you'd rather be alone

You're hiding in a shell
So easy I can tell
Can you sell me some thoughts
Though drugs just can't be bought
Tell me is it some crime
To wait a long time
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me
Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined
Destiny

Something's been happening here
Don't touch
Don't come so near
Don't ask me to reply
Can't think of no more lies
The hand thate reaches out
Can crush without a doubt
I think you'd rather be alone

Oh much is left unexplained
It's getting to my brain
Yet still you wear that smile
Then walk your crooked mile
Some day you're bound to learn
Too late
There's no return
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me
Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined
Destiny

Murder Story

You say to me things should soon be alright
I get so scared if I don't get out at night
The questions real
The answer so false
I just can't cope no more with this rate of pulse

I lost my past
I gave it away
I feel so insecure
I couldn't take another day
Please be kind
Don't call me no wreck
My nerves are very live you know
But soon they're going to break

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story

So don't come too close
I can't stand the heat
I get nightmares of places people go to meet
It's so apparent when I walk in the door
That I'm all alone
There's no one home and no one wants me anymore
So claustrophobic if I stand I one place
This state of mind I'm in is positively quite a disgrace
The children from the street call out my name
"Hey You"
It's all so mutual but you know
I just don't want to share no fame

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Murder Story
No Oh No
No Oh No

Garden Of Hate

Oh I only had enough of you
Oh I did not ask for nothing else
But you've gone and found a one-way out
I stand here by myself
Oh I see a man he's got a broken arm
I don't know if I care
Follow him into the garden of hate
Everybody's going to be there

It's been some time since I last saw you
Can somebody here please tell me why
So many things I just don't understand
No matter how I try
A girl I know got quite cut up one night
I don't know if I care
She was in my garden of hate
So many others are there

Garden of hate
Ha Haha garden of hate
Garden of hate
Ha haha garden of hate
