Tracklist

Heaven

length: 3:56
composer: John Foxx, Anne Clark
lyricist: Anne Clark

Got a picture of your house and you're standing by the door.
It's black and white and faded and it's looking pretty worn
I see the factr'y that I worked silhouetted in the back.
The memories are gray but, man, they're really coming back.
I don't need to be the king of the world
As long as I'm the hero of this little girl.

Heaven isn't too far away.
Closer to it every day.
No matter what your friends might say.

How I love the way you move and the sparkle in your eyes.
There's a color deep inside them like a blue suburban sky.
When I come home late at night and you're in bed asleep.
I wrap my arms around you so I can feel you breath.
I don't need to a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan.

Heaven isn't too far away.
Closer to it every day.
No matter what your friends might say.
We'll find our way. Yeah.

Now the lights are going out, along the boulevard.
Memories come rushing back and it makes it pretty hard.
I've got nowhere left to go, no one really cares.
I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you.

Heaven isn't too far away.
Closer to it every day.
No matter what your friends might say.

Red Sands

length: 3:18
composer: Anne Clark, John Foxx
lyricist: Anne Clark
Blood on the sand
Blood on the hands
of a handful of madman
What a way to see the world
Through the smeared window of a TV-Screen
Technicolor ***assinations
***assinations that make me scared and afraid
Afraid of the streets that breed malice and hatred
Those with their heads bowed to the darkness
Those who can't see for the glave of the light
Those without strength
Who can't raise hands yet alone guns
Become prisoners of conscience
Though not your conscience
You cheer and rejoice as life trickles away
Through the outlets you give in the shape of a gun
Our world is slipping quickly away

Alarm Call

length: 3:57
composer: Anne Clark, John Foxx
lyricist: Anne Clark
Wake up with the fear of God
Inside me each morning
As I open my eyes
To this world without warning
So easy to fall down
So easy to be crushed
As you fight to stand at all
In this never ending rush
There's no one here who's close enough
To share this sorrow with
Have few answers for myself
Yet alone enough to give
Watch all my faults before me
Like reflections in a glass
They linger on around
And doesn't ever seem to pass
So easy to fall down
So easy to be crushed
As you fight to stand at all
In this never ending rush
My world's an open prison
Where I walk to and fro
Viewed with tunnel vision
'Cause there's no place i can go
So easy to fall down
So easy to be crushed
As you fight to stand at all
In this never ending rush

Tide

length: 2:29
composer: Anne Clark, John Foxx
lyricist: Anne Clark
Lone figure walk beside a restless shore
How much more ?
How much more ?
The world doesn't have to tell me what I need
I know how to fail and how to succeed
Tide always turns quicker
When you're least prepared
Lone figure walks beside a restless shore
Always scared

The Interruption

length: 2:35
composer: Anne Clark, John Foxx
lyricist: Anne Clark
I am the sharpened sword
The cast stoned
The words that linger too long in the air
The rumbling silence over the length of a room
The lie that lay between two lovers
The hopelessness in their struggling
The price to high to pay
A dark and obscured voyeur
Combing through your secret
The stranger to the child
Loneliness in solitude
Sand in the drinkers mouth
Shadows over sunlight
And all the time you are with me
Uncertainly
Certainly of falling
Scars of souls
Scars of skin
Stars too far away to see
Wave on wave over the swimmers head
And all the time you are with me

The Power Game

length: 3:07
composer: Dominic Appleton, Andrea Laschetti, Anne Clark, Gary Mundy
lyricist: Anne Clark
I've been sitting here all day
Trying to understand
Why people want to rule each other
When the problem's close at hand

A little less of what you want
And more of what you've got
Is enough to keep you struggling
Without hatching other plots

But justify yourself!
Don't satisfy yourself!
You should be out there voting
Say the power mongers gloating

The left-wing rich
Trying to shed their guilt
Go knocking down dreams
Before they're even built
Don't tell me how to live my life
Don't tell me what to do
Repression is always brought about
By people with politics and attitudes like you

World Without Warning

length: 4:02
composer: Anne Clark, Jim Manray
lyricist: Anne Clark
I live off nothing in this world
Except the thick grey air that chains itself
Swirls all around and ingrains itself
Stifles my last hope into sullen despair

I don't associate myself
With all of the people I can do without
Those who never leave me in any doubt
That their selfish narrow lives are all they care about

I enjoy the silence in my life
I don't thrive on the chaos that those contact can bring
So many empty gestures
That don't mean anything

It's so hard and so cold
The texture of this world
That nothing in this place is soft enough to hold
And nothing like tenderness can ever be unfurled
I don't want anything in this world

Except a thick gray air
That will keep my heart hoping
And keep my eyes wide open
Just in case there's something there

I don't want anything in this world
Except a thick gray air
That will keep my heart hoping
And keep my eyes wide open

Just in case there's something there
Just in case there's something there

Bursting

length: 4:15
lyricist: Anne Clark
composer: Anne Clark, Steven Kilbourne, Jim Manray
Bursting in a thousand places
Like a bottle of champagne
Burst all over me

Burst all over me

Foaming like a wild horse
Your breath will beat on me
Pulling me tighter with your reins
My eyes will burn on you
Burn on you

My Heart will beat so loudly
Like a drumming through your brain
Then when you think I've finished
I shall beat on you again

My flesh will hit on you
Like waves against a rock
Like being dragged under water
We will fight against the shock

I will hold you in my arms
As the night turns into day
And when i squeeze you tighter
You won't pull away

Like a flash of flame
I will lick you with my tongue
Wetness shall cool the fire
And no bells shall be rung

We shall tire eventually
After we’ve fulfilled our needs
Until love becomes the hunger once more
And we start once again our feed
Bursting in a thousand places
Like a bottle of champagne
Burst all over me

Lovers Retreat

length: 3:42
composer: Anne Clark, Steven Kilbourne, Jim Manray
lyricist: Anne Clark
Look at your young faces
They're growing older with each moment
Harder and less beautiful
With every word we say
Stumbling over bridges
And through the backstreets
Waiting for some thing
But we don't knoe what
It could be a promise
It could be passion
Eternal life
Or instant death
Wading through rubbish
And dodging choc-a-block cars
Through the door and up the stairs
We'll find some moments of happiness
Between shets we've knownso often
The warmest place in this hostile town
Afterwads, through dust and comfort filled eyes
We can look upwadrs
And almost stare at the stars
