Naked Eye

You can come inside
Come into the Naked Eye

My only world falls in again
I see your face fall in again
It's so dark
I don't know your name
It's so dark
And I don't know your name

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle's eye
Through the needle's eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

I feel so high
Going up on the wall
And you're down below me
Look all around look all around now
Look all around look all around now

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle's eye
Through the needle's eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

Just wanted a special view
Just me and you
Just just just the two of us
Just two of us
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Naked Eye Naked Eye

What do you see
And what's there to learn
Reading your books
Third diagram
Someone's in the room down below
Someone someone
Someone below
Insects
Cherries
To the cherries
On the wall

Citizen (Dance Of Youth)

Citizen
A cure to kill the east
A disease of the west
Romance is no escape
But I'll escape you
The manufacturing sound
Complaining to ourselves
You're cutting up our friends
Making love to our sisters
Another endless day
Another daze
But I'm losing track
The train goes off the rails

Dance Of The Youth
Youth want to dance

Citizen
The tribal war begins
But radio's a God
Industrial money
God is industry
Dance of youth
Citizen you know what we're after
Know what we're after
Know what we're after

Citizen
The state that we've come to love
Love's a crime against the state
I hate the sound of bells
Communications lost
Something we're after
I hate democracy
One more contact lost
Love
A crime against the state
The state we've come to love
Oh electric candle light
What time is it over there
We got to wear a badge
We're losing track of days

Dance of the youth
Youth want to dance

Citizen
I'll share a room with you
You're getting so very thin
Did we ask for this
Are you rationing our water
Dance of the youth
Our food is getting cold
And you're getting colder
I see you
I'm not so unaware
Citizen

Citizen
An American
Got got a camera
Takes a picture
Citizen
Drum
Citizen
Drum
Citizen
Drum
To drum to drum

Carnival (Shelter In A Suitcase)

Low club light
Lips sealed tight
Expose fade away
Observer write it all down
For Me

No soundtrack
No fightback
Noise annoys
Dark Subject

All the underworld
Making plans for us
We are open wide
Need someone to stand up
Up up

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Stangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Sailor talk to soldier
Sailor

Low club light
Lips sealed tight
Expose fade away
Observer write it all down
For me
I'll try
I'll spy
I would not buy
A car from you
They make uniforms
Something to call style
We need to stand up
We are open wide-ide-ide

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Strangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Soldier talk to sailer
Soldier

All the underworld
Making plans for us
We are open wide
Need someone to stand up
Up up

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Strangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Soldier talk to sailer
Soldier

Factory

In passage of time
To a cigarette burn
In the book that I read
To the sentence I learn
Up and down
Going round
Going round 'till we drown again

I'm gonna set myself up
I'm gonna up to the top
Up to the top
To the top
I'm going down to the ground
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

To the glittering prize
To the fool in the sky
I've got a jewel in my eye
I'm going up
Coming down
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

To the centre of the man
Because he had a plan
He had a plan to escape
But now we've got it on tape
Going up
Coming down
Going around
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

Factory
Going out to lunch
Factory
Going out to lunch

Premonition

Real to real
Fact to fact
Nothing moving happening
Artifact
The waiting room
Waits
Limbo can burn
But the original sin
The incentive to learn

Fly over land
Where no hearts can beat
The metal rain pouring
Raining
Raining
Raining down on me
Hole in my head
Where the creature has crawled
And It's burning and turning
Out of control

Real to real
Fact to fact
Nothing moving happening
Artifact
I in this land
Sand in the eye
So here we go
The happy man dies

Brave little world
Well you cry once again
Remodel life
Remake and remodel
Remoel men
Protection Protection
The sound of machines
Image is burning
As they grind to a halt
Crying and crying

The sound of the shells
Tears turn to salt
Cry and I cry
Just one more illusion
I cry just for you
There's a hole in my head
Where the voices came through

Fly over land
Waiting and waiting
Where no hears can beat
Machinery's burning
The metal rains pour
Pour
Raining
Raining down on me

Premonition

Changeling

Overground
Underground
Pulsating through
Street Parade
Day arcade
No cloning you
Uniform
Won't conform
Hero who dies
Find a boy
Kill a toy
Get no reply

Changeling
Well changeling for you
They're coming out of you

Vision
Lost
Out of control
Lost

Down in the club
Beau bells can ring
Look good in blue
Help me to sing
Expose
Fade away
Contact erased
Call a friend
Tailor made
Do as I say

Changeling
Well changeling for you
They're coming out of you

Vision
Lost
Out of control
Lost

Overground
Underground
Overground
Underground

Down in the club
Down in the club
Down in the club

Calling Your Name

Private world
Moving fast
I see your face in the distant past
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly

Echoes of an empty room
Assassin at the window below
The concrete jungle sleeps at night
Story ends
Leave him alone

Calling
Calling your name
All that you say goes in vain
I would like to find you
On a voyage
That could find itself true

Centre of a scene
Where a man lies dying in the sun
The concrete jungle sleeps at night
Story ends
Can't leave him alone

Calling
Calling your name
All that you say goes in vain
I would like to find you
On a voyage
That could find itself true

Private world
Moving fast
I see your face in the distant past
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly

Scar

Travelling through
Flashback to you
Fire
I see fire
Sun in my eyes
People in love
Talk far too much
Cities have lights
Cities have lights
Sun in my eyes

Car passenger
Fate at the wheel
Quick kiss of death
Car passenger
Fate at the wheel
Quick kiss of death

Travelling through
Cities have lights
Cities have lights
Car passenger
Fire
I see fire
