Tracklist

Night Time

length: 4:57
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman

Night time - turning out the sun
Countdown - pulsing like a machine
Conflict - cars and people, steel on flesh
Night time - desperation's sweat on breath

Bloodstains - night covering the crimes
Daytime - shows the face behind the mask
Show time - law and order, life and death
Fun time - a drunken time where all can lie

Come, come with me; we'll run into the night
Come, come and see sweet madness of night

Night time - party troops and governments
Club time - lovers, riches, promises
No time - running hiding, crying tears
It's night time, and time to run from all your fears

Night time

Darkness Before Dawn

length: 5:20
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
The lore of elders passes judgment on this waste
And finding me or them does lack accepting fate
And as the moments pass another face arrives
We watch them come and go with speed of passing clouds

Forbidden fruits of dreams that rule our thoughts my love
Of lands untouched and ways to come always maybe
But choking on promises meant for the deal
Thinking again the darkest hour before the dawn

Confirming fears that from the dawn of time have been
Retracing footsteps in dark chambers of grey lands
And through the madness through the terror we must pass
As if awaiting sunlight that may never come

In time we face ourselves with all our faults and fears
Now that I know the final conflict is within
I recognize the faces of my friends and hear the call
"Come journey, journey with me through the darkest hour"

Love Like Blood

length: 6:51
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Paul Ferguson, Jaz Coleman
We must play our lives like soldiers in the field.
The life is short
I'm running faster all the time.
Strength and beauty destined to decay

So cut the rose in full bloom.
Till the fearless come and the act is done

A love like blood
A love like blood.
Till the fearless come and the act is done

A love like blood
A love like blood.

Everyday through all frustration and despair

Love and hate fight with burning hearts.
Till legends live and man is god again

And self-preservation rules the day no more.
We must dream of promised lands and fields
That's never fade in season
As we move towards no end
We leani to die.
Red tears are shed on gray.
Till the fearless come and the act is done

Till the fearless come and the act is done

Kings and Queens

length: 4:42
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
Well take it easy
While the world goes crazy
As it's just another day
And we've all been through the mangle
And our pockets are empty
But we'll live like kings and queens
Hear the choirs of noise sing
Take a load off my mind soothe me
Live like kings and queens

Well easy sleazy
In and out and back again
Feel a power running through me
And I'm alive and kicking
I accept submission
To the pleasures of the flesh
And the joy of pain
Satisfy me satisfy
Live like kings and queens

I said, "take it easy
"Sanity has come"
I can never undo
The wrong of the beginning
There's so many hungry
But I'm gonna turn a blind eye
'Cause I've got to live now
Rejoice and kill your heart 'cos I say
Live like kings and queens

Tabazan

length: 4:38
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
I've tried to understand the ways of men they taught me
They've lost their values as we define a wealth
Semen and blood is all I've got, investments of a future
I'm searching for a new gold yes I'm searching for a new gold
A voice is calling
Move closer to you - yeah
Virile young men run down the street in havoc singing
"I wish to build, I penetrate, I penetrate"
Restricted sexuality gives birth to worlds of terror
And all the time I'm trying to piece new schemes together - help me
Architects erect erections, monoliths are raised
I love the swollen mound I love the swollen mound
All hail the new seed breeding from our hearts and wombs
And night and day run round in circles following sex instinct
Push it between her legs and stretch the lips mother relieve me
Bodies entwined in human tangle at the point of climax
Shoot forth the new gold and at last reason makes perfect sense
I'm shooting, shooting forth
I'm shooting forth the new gold now - ha!

Multitudes

producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
The multitude excites, the flags are flown
By fireside the program starts
And I am running through this madness
And all the time I can't relate
We sit around in rooms we talk our fears

Asking why we should go on
God I try to make ends meet the best I can
Playing rhythms out of time
Far from the multitudes a few will always stand
They don't fit in they don't belong, move on, move on this way
Within disorder I assume my role

Laugh and cry as I accept
Eternal indolence through ages
'til restless souls begin to wake
Perfection within decades of dissatisfaction and disillusion
A means to no end, a means to no end

Europe

length: 4:38
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
Take up your arms pick up your courage
A black sun is rising as the gods of europe sleep
Come back into your strength awaken
Catastrophes atrocities shall summon you my love
Glory glory how we wait in europe
What have they done, what are they doing?
The place I love so butchered ravaged scarred and raped
The years have passed us still we're fighting
'til once again somewhere green lands shall be in sight
Glory glory how we wait in europe
Glory glory how we watch in europe
The day humanity is over
Let nations east and west tremble at the sight
'til standard bearers' eyes are hungry
And reason dead forever - god let it be soon

Eighties

length: 3:51
producer: Chris Kimsey
engineer: Thomas Stiehler
writer: Paul Ferguson, Geordie Walker, Paul Raven, Jaz Coleman
Eighties, I'm living in the eighties
Eighties, I have to push, I have to struggle
Eighties, get out of my way, I'm not for sale no more
Eighties, let's kamikaze 'til we get there

And we sang
You do it this way

Eighties, by day we run by night we dance, we do
Eighties, I'm in love with the coming race
Eighties, I've got the best, I'll take all I can get
Eighties, I'm living for the eighties

Eighties, I'm living in the eighties, I push
Eighties, I'm living
Eighties, I'm living in the eighties, I struggle
Eighties, I'm living

Eighties, I'm living
Eighties, I'm living in the eighties
Eighties, I'm living in the eighties, I push
Eighties, push, push, struggle

Eighties, I'm living
Eighties, eighties, I'm living
Eighties, I'm living in the eighties, I push
