Track Name: Who
Turn the crimson time

Sanity like a kite string

Fatal flaws the wind brings

Can you hear the canary sing?

As its lowered down the mine.

... of magic spells and heather rings

lost in the mists of time

echoes, echoes, echoes

echoes like a lovers call.

Who'd you know who'd know such things

Who - you, You - who'd know such things

Who'd you know who'd know such things

Mystics, witches, lords or kings.

Who - Who - Who - Madness

All the pride before the fall

the victimless of crime

Who'd you know who'd know such things

Who - you, You - who'd know such things

Who'd you know who'd know such things

Mystics, witches, lords or kings.

Turn - Turn the crimson time

Turn - Turn - Turn the crimson time

Sanity like a kite string....

Can you hear. Can you hear the canary sing?

Can you hear. Can you hear the canary sing?

Can you hear. Can you hear the canary sing?

Can you hear. Can you hear the canary sing?

Open like a market stall

All bowed down to those enthral

Victory to those with gall

Turn - Turn the crimson time

Turn - Turn - Turn the crimson time.
Track Name: Belt of Skin
Belt of Skin

She wore black PVC

like a skin disease

she wore leather boots

and was hard to please

Voodoo doll - Voodoo doll

Voodoo doll - Voodoo doll

Voodoo doll - Devil's moll

Voodoo doll of a thousand nightmares

Voodoo doll of a thousand blades

Belt of Skin

She had a jacket of flesh

and a belt of skin

She had an air of death

that came - came from within

Voodoo doll - Devils moll

Hung for the innocence

that she stole.

Hung for the innocence

Belt of Skin

Hung for the innocence

that she stole.

She had silver studs

And a polished gum

She had scars on her arms

She hid from the sun.
Track Name: Canvass
Canvas

Like a painted personality...

Like a Sainted divinity

upon a stunted cross

....canvass - made of stone

Like a painted personality on a canvass

You lied - you killed and found

yourself standing on your own

You didn't hear the innocent

With their dark and desperate tone

And now you sit here waiting

amongst the blood and bone

Canvass - you didn't see the payback

Canvass -you didn't feel the loss

You never saw the consequence

You never - never gave a toss

Last ghost...

Last ghost in the machine

Last ghost...

Last ghost in the machine

Who paid for every treachery

Who never knew the cost

You never saw the consequence

You never - never gave a toss

Last man standing

Last man standing

You never - never gave a toss

You never saw the consequence

Never gave a toss

Canvass - you didn't see the payback

Canvass -you didn't feel the loss

Canvass - Canvass - Canvass - Canvass.
Track Name: Sulphur
Sulphur

You can wear fine clothes

And dine at the feast

Go to all the best shows

But you are still a beast

They can hide behind their evil charm

Their glib never seems to cease

Have a beautiful girl on either arm

We see behind this fucking sham

We see behind your yellow eyes

We see beyond their shallow lies

We see behind your poisoned bile

We see beyond your crooked smiles

You can a drive fast car

A Ferrari at least

Have a date with a star

Have a date with a star

See the fallen soul of man

See the fallen soul of man

See the fallen soul of man

See the fallen soul of man

You can wear fine clothes

And dine at the feast

Go to all the best shows

But you are still a beast.
Track Name: Brink
Brink

Your standing on the edge of decision

And your heart is dead and your eyes won't open

Cause the cold wind has bitten far to deep

for you to feel the warmth of life again

The petty indecision of yesterday trial

bites at the knowledge of an empty dream

No-one listen to your pleads for peace

and no-one will here your silent scream.

On the brink....

To comfort and deceive with soft promises

While you walk that narrow path of glass

And pray that God will deliver you

From the inconsistent attitude of angry flies.

Looking down a tunnel of terminal black

No escape door or panacea for the soul

Just the treachery of repetition

And the misconception of deliverance

Now the time has come to swing the pendulum

And cast the die of fatal choices

On - Off - On - Off

On off days in the winter - Brink.

Time has flown away

and your lonely

as a shipwrecked fool.

you realize...

Lonely as a shipwrecked fool

you realize...the experience of politics

is just cheap psychology on the sly.
Track Name: Sour Soup
Sour Soup

Eating humble pie

on a platter made of sorrow

All our pained tomorrows

all our dark thoughts in the night

Drinking greens & blues - blues & greys

Drowning in the way

Dreaming of yesterday

In a testube rack of pain

Sour Soup - Sour Soup of tears and no hope

Sour Soup - Sour Soup of tears and no hope

Walking on a shredded path

To go and go again

From rock to deep blue sea

Hard sun and pure acid rain.

Sour Soup

All of our dark thoughts in the night

All our pained tomorrows eating humble

And buried on a deserted moor...

Sorrow - nothing heard nothing said

Sorrow - in a coffin lined with lead

Sorrow - nothing heard and nothing said

Sorrow...

Lining lungs with fucking black shit

The throat - its got a noose around it

Inhaling all this fucking horror

The throat - its got a noose around it
Track Name: Urbia
Urbia

Overhung mornings and nights of long knifes

Backstreet bondage with the stepford wives

seersucker suits and little white lies

Its 10 miles to hell as the crow flies

Urbia - Urbia - Urbia - Urbia

Mundane evenings and days of despair

Half baked brain

Urbia - Urbia - Urbia - Urbia

Half baked brain

Overhung mornings and nights of long knifes

Backstreet bondage with the stepford wives

seersucker suits and little white lies

Its 10 miles to hell as the crow flies

Urbia - Urbia - mindset like a drain

Urbia - Urbia - like the one track train

Urbia - Urbia - Urbia - Urbia

Urbia - Urbia - Urbia - Urbia

Half baked brain

You've never been sane

When your already dead
Track Name: Reaction Red
Reaction Red

When I showed you all of my prayer books

The ones that were written by the hanged

Taken from the reverend

Turned on by desperation

You asked about salvation

Like you had a plan

Your twist and turn and feed on

the darker side of man

When I showed you my gallery of

executions of this world

Snapshots of the disbelieving

about to meet their end

You asked about the cruelty

and how the death camps ran

You think you really understand

the darker side of man

When I showed you my collection of heads

Stolen from people with dreams of their own

Your just curious and drawn to

the darker side of man.

Reaction Red - Reaction Red

Reaction Red - Reaction Red

You think you really understand

the darker side of man.
