Uncertain Smile (12" Remix)

Peeling the skin back from my eyes
I felt surprised
That the time on the clock was the time
I usually retired
To the place where I cleared my head of you
But just for today
I think I'll lie here and dream of you

I've got you under my skin where the rain can't get in
But if the sweat pours out
Just shout
I'll try to swim and pull you out

A howling wind blows the litter as the rain flows
As street lamps pour orange colored shapes
Through your windows
A broken soul
Stares from a pair of watering eyes
Uncertain emotions force an uncertain smile

I've got you under my skin where the rain can't get in
But if the sweat pours out
Just shout
I'll try to swim and pull you out
I've got you under my skin where the rain can't get in
But if the sweat pours out
Just shout
I'll try to swim and pull you out

Perfect (12" Remix)

It's a chilly English winter
And solitude is never easy to maintain
Except when it rains
So I hang an empty smile beneath my empty eyes
And go out for a walk
The wet morning sun reflects off the paving-stones
While a little dog barks its head off
In the distance

Oh, what a perfect day
To think about my silly world
My feet are firmly screwed to the floor
What is there to fear from such a regular world?

Oh, what a perfect day
To think about my silly world
My feet are firmly screwed to the floor
What is there to fear from such a regular world?

Passing by a cemetery
I think of all the little hopes and dreams
That lie lifeless and unfilled beneath the soil
I see an old man fingering his perishing flesh
He tells himself he was a good man and did good things
Amused and confused by life's little ironies
He swallows his bottle of distilled damnation

People turn around with unseeing eyes
They're looking for something that doesn't exist
The world you once knew is being eaten up by rust
No-one has time for the past
But still in God they trust
The future is now
But it's all going wrong
Bodies good for nothing
But it's to nothing they belong
People say their prayers and some work hard
If you give them all your money
They'll give you their hearts
This town ain't getting like a ghost town
It's getting like hell

Oh, what a perfect day
To think about my silly world
My feet are firmly screwed to the floor
What is there to fear from such a regular world?
(repeats)

Sweet Bird Of Truth (12" Remix)

Heaven sent, hell bent
Over the mountain tops we go
Just like all the other GI Joes
EE-AY-EE-AY adios!

Arabia, Arabia, Arabia, Arabia (repeating)

Six o'clock in the morning
And I'm the last person in this plane still awake
You know I can almost smell
The blood washing 'gainst the shores
Of this land that can't forget its past
Oh, the wind that carries this plane
Is the wind of change
Heaven sent and hell bent
Over the mountain tops we go
Just like all the other GI Joes
EE-AY-EE-AY adios!

Across the beaches and cranes
Rivers and trains
All the money I've made
Bodies I've maimed
Time was when I seemed to know
Just like any other GI Joe
Should I cry like a baby
Die like a man
While all the planet's little wars
Start joining hands
Oh, what a heaven -- what a hell
You know there's nothing could be done in this whole wide world

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking

Arabia, Arabia (repeating)

I don't know what's wrong or right
I'm just a regular guy
With bottled up insides
I ain't ever been to church
Or believed in Jesus Christ
But I'm praying that God's with you
When you die

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking
Is sinking, is sinking (repeating)

Infected (12" Remix)

I've got too much energy to switch off my mind
But not enough to get myself organized
My heart is heavy
My head is confused
And my aching little soul
Has started burning blue

I can't give you up, 'til I've got more than enough
So infect me with your love
Nurse me into sickness
Nurse me back to health
Endow me with the gifts of the man made world

When desire becomes an illness instead of a joy
And guilt a necessity that's gotta be destroyed

Take me by the hands
And walk me to the end of the pier
Run your fingers through my hair
And tell me what I wanna hear
Will lies become truths in this face of fading youth?
From my scrotum to your womb
Your cradle to my tomb

Infect me with your love

I can't give you up, 'til I've got more than enough
So infect me with your love
Nurse me into sickness
Nurse me back to health
Endow me with the gifts of the man made world
I can't give you up, 'cause I need more than enough
Infect me with your love
Nurse me into sickness
Nurse me back to health
And tell me what it is that I want in this world

Armageddon Days (12" Remix)

They're 5 miles high as the crow flies
Leaving vapour trails against a blood red sky
Moving in from the East towards the West
With Balaclava helmets over their heads, yes

But if you think that Jesus Christ is coming
Honey you've got another thing coming
If he ever finds out who's hijacked his name
He'll cut out his heart and turn in his grave

It's war, she cried
It's war, she cried
This is war
Drop your possessions all you simple folk
You'll fight them on the beaches in your underclothes
You'll thank the good Lord for raising the Union Jack
You'll watch the ships sail out of harbour
And the bodies come floating back
Watch the ships sail out of harbour
And the bodies come floating back

But if you think that Jesus Christ is coming
Honey you've got another thing coming
If he ever finds out who's hijacked his name
He'll cut out his heart and turn in his grave

Islam is rising
The Christians mobilising
The world is on its elbows and knees
It's forgotten the message and worships the creeds

"Get the gun, get the gun, get the gun"
"Stay away from the gun, stay away from the gun"

If the real Jesus Christ were to stand up today
He'd be gunned down cold by the CIA
Oh, the lights that now burn brightest behind stained glass
Will cast the darkest shadows upon the human heart
But God didn't build himself that throne
God doesn't live in Israel or Rome
God doesn't belong to the yankee dollar
God doesn't plant the bombs for Hezbollah
God doesn't even go to church
And God won't send us down to Allah to burn
God will remind us what we already know
That the human race is about to reap what it's sown

Islam is rising
The Christians mobilising
The world is on its elbows and knees
It's forgotten the message and worships the creeds
The world is on its elbows and knees
It's forgotten the message and worships the creeds
The world is on its elbows and knees
It's forgotten the message and worships the creeds
The world is on its elbows and knees
It's forgotten the message and worships the creeds

Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here

The Violence Of Truth (12" Remix)

What is evil?
What is love?

What is evil?
What is love?
What is evil?
What is love?

What is evil?
What is love?
What is evil?
What is love?
What is evil?

Somethings telling you to wake up and salute
The dangers of obedience and violence of truth
Somethings telling you to wake up and salute
The dangers of obedience and violence of truth

God is evil
God is love
God is the force that possesses us
God is beauty
God is truth
God is the force that is watching over you

What is evil?
What is love?
What is evil?
What is love?
What is evil?
What is love?

Gravitate To Me (12" Remix)

I've been watching you for ages
You're like a boat without a mast
Struggling with the tide of destiny
Between the future and the past

I am the lighthouse
I am the sea
I am the air that you breathe
Gravitate to me

Through the ether and the mists of the mind
You will come to me to lay by my side
To stroke my hair
To cuddle my flesh
And to quell the torrents in my subterranean depths

This world ain't strong enough to keep us from each other
For we are kindred spirits
Born to become earthly lovers

I am the lighthouse
I am the sea
I am your destiny
Gravitate to me

There is something within your voice
Something behind your eyes
Something inside your heart
That is beating in time with mine

I know you
From a previous incarnation
I know you
From a previous incarnation
I know you
From a previous incarnation
Incarnation, incarnation

Gravitate to me
Gravitate to me
Gravitate to me
Gravitate to me

Dogs Of Lust (12" Remix)

You do this now
You'll appreciate and enjoy our music more
If you listen with an open and relaxed mind
Without expecting to hear harmony, ???
Or other units found in western music

Rising slowly (repeating)

Here they come
The dogs of lust
Out of my mind
Into my life
Somebody should be here to hold me
Somebody should be here to show me, show me
When you're lustful
When you're lonely
And the heat is rising slowly

I got it blue
I got it bad
I got the sweetest sadness I ever had
As the hours pass before my eyes
As the hours pass before me
When you're lustful
When you're lonely
And the heat is rising slowly

Rising slowly (repeating)

I keep reaching up
But they drag me back down
Wherever I try to hide
I will always be found

When you're lustful
When you're lonely
And the heat is rising slowly
Rising rising rising slowly
Rising rising rising rising rising slowly
