Distance Crunching Honchos With Echo Units

 

Don't Move

Holiday for two
beautiful furniture
powdered gun drifting up inside
Cretaceous man become just what I am
Now don't move, don't move

Ooooh don't move

Composed of solid song, we get along
Distance crunching honchos with echo units
Sue me if you want, there's nothing left
Now don't move, don't move

Oooh don't move.

Now mix it up with water like a sacrifice to slaughter
Take off your helment lay down your cable
Pick it up (?) earthshaker, Poseidon heart-breaker
Don't move don't move

Ooooh don't move

No neo-Henrik Ibsen with a prehistoric Gibson
Could begin to do what I have almost done
Now look into the sunset before the final credit
Don't move don't move

The miracles (Americans ?) come falling, the miracles come crawling
I'm scared of something nasty (Do you know what kind of snake ?)
Forget the memories dear, that I was ever here
Don't move don't move

 

Traitor

I never understand why you put up your hand
And volunteered to play the company man
You wanna come back you wanna have a crack
But the train is gone - it's never coming back

You should have realized by the ominous skies
That destiny was dealing you a joker old guy
Next time don't come don't pursue that something
You should've known better that you can't come

Every little trend that comes round the bend
Carries you aloft and you're getting soft
Struggles and sports under halogen quartz
One eye on the meter, one eye in the mirror
Its all getting dearer, it's all getting clearer
Come in peace with a sheep to fleece
Lamb noisette (?) says she won't forget but
She'll never remember if she is dismembered

Traitor / Never understand / Feel so good / Feel so young

Should've realized by the ominous skies...

(Repeat "Traitor" and "Should've realized..." except for one line saying "I feel like spring has sprung" till end)

 

She Comes In Singing

You've got a lot of nerve
Gonna get what you deserve
You've gone around the curve

You got a face like Raphael
You got a heart like a blue whale
And your heart is not for sale

You got a mind like magazine
You got a taste like Florentine
And a lot that's in between

 

All See It Now

You shouldn't have to feel so frightened
And you just wanna feel enlightened baby, in front of you
Oh my what love can do

You shouldn't have to hide in darkness
Its not such a good likeness baby, less of you
Oh yeah what love can do

And we all see it now

You talk a lot without a purpose
You walk around just like circus baby, is it true ?
That's what love did to you

You've got a friend who's very famous
I know you'd never ever shame us baby, but look at you
That's what fame can do

And we all see it now

You took a lot of people with you
And now expect them to forgive you, you're not through
That's what it means to you
And then you lie down on the sofa
You know you shouldn't really bother baby, I'm here too
That's what it does to you

And we all see it now

 

Trying To Get In

Curled in the warm winter sun
All alone number one (?)
Gentle caramel melting dream
Things meant for something else
What else did you give to me ?

There's someone outside, they're trying to get in
Mirror denies it, I can't wake up this morning

Curled in the cool summer moon (?)
Loses himself in the chances that fortune has given him

Someone outside, they're trying to get in
Mirror denies...

Oh Mr Silver please come in
We've been sitting here waiting for you
Such a long long time

(Right speaker)
None may dare to watch your grandeur
None may walk
(Left speaker)
Moses by the seaside in 1974
Listens to the music of the skyscraper carnivores

There's someone outside...

Moses by the seaside...

Somewhere in this wilderness you wander like a river
Crossing the wheatfields and crying to the sorry ocean,
We're crying to the sorry ocean

Wrapped in the arms of the night

Someone outside

There's someone outside, they're trying to get in

 

Florian Trout

Florian Trout was a distant boy, he lived in a very strange town
Where was he, you may well ask, when the widow's house burned down
I've seen his face in windows, his voice upon the wind
I felt his hand upon my shoulder
I felt like I had sinned

Take your time, make your way
Watch your step, watch your step

Searched for him in nightmares
I've been led through the dark
Postcards from a paradise with shadows and with sharks
In the furtive gestures, in the lighting's flash
Over static airways, detour round the crash

Take your time...

How deep is the deepest ocean
How high is the sky
You have love and sweet devotion
I wonder why can't I

Florian Trout was a brilliant mind gruesome in precision
Analytic like a knife, sharp like an incision
Blue and purple in the night he goes about his business
Seldom even looking out into the silver distance

Take your time...

Florian Trout was a distant boy, he lived in a very strange town
Where was he, you may well ask, when the widow's house burned down
I wonder how he feels right now when evening shades are falling
Lonely in his capsule with all of heaven calling

How deep is ....

 

5:28

...will be (?) 5:25 pm...5:26 pm...5:27 pm...5:28 pm

 

Who Is The One ?

(Spoken as if through a telephone)
? walked off all dreamy eyed
Inconvenience the rest of the group when they turned up late
Or whatever when everyone was waiting to leave
And they were all looking like "Wow".
And that's what got everybody angry.

Who's the one with the millionare smoulder ?
Who's the one with the atomic gun ?
Who's the one with the vulture's shoulder ?
Now tell me who is the one ?

Who's the one with the diplomat fetish ?
Who's the one with the burnt out son/sun ?
Who's the one with the doomsday message ?
Now tell me who is the one ?

Who's the one with the multiple endings ?
Who's the one when the race has begun ?
Who's the one when the patent is pending ?
Now tell me who is the one ?

Who's the one with the modified cortex ?
Who's the one with the forbidden fun ?
Who's the one with the whispering Semtex ?
Now tell me who is the one ?

(repeat fragments of the above till end)

 

Get Over It

Walking down the street, I'm walking down the street
People drift by and they dance a certain beat
I'm walking towards you with flower in my hand
One of these days you're gonna understand

The lives fall away (?) but the road goes on
I lose my way inside a song
Sing about the things that you've never had
It's funny how I'm happy when you're sad

Where can I get over it ?

 

Take Your Place

These are the marks you made
You never meant to fade
They come in to take your place
And these are the stories I heard
Come back, a sad farewell
They come in to take your place

But all of the treasure you saved
And none of the lives you lost
Will come in to take your place
And three (free ?) are the days in May
But not one single moment
Will come in to take your place

Will come in to take your place (repeat)
They come in to take your place (repeat)

 

Towards Sleep

Trust her distant island cluster
Protecting her from intrusive things
I know I really shouldn't trust her
She's looked at all my dreams

Chorus:
Now she's hiding out in the distance somewhere
Falling down towards sleep
Gotta get a little feeling out there
Gotta get in deep
(Second time only)
Before she goes to sleep, to dream about guitars

One of the sisters is a flight assistant
One of them is a plane
One of them is a typhoon
Never going back again

One of their mothers was a mother lode
One of them was a mermaid
One of them was a long gone woman
Do you think that's funny ?

Chorus

 

The Moon And The Sea

The boat goes out, surrender yours
It could be any day
The fishermen shout, approaching storm
It's just like yesterday
Sometimes I can't tell what I'm doin' here
Am I s'pposed to be a clown or a buccanneer
From the vaguest clue to the faintest idea
A Roman holiday

Chorus:Surrender smiles, epiphanies
It's almost every day
And the sea's in my bed
And the moon's in my head

We live in a house upon the hill
Its just a mile away
We look out to sea
Dawn's early light
It chased the night away
Sometimes I can't tell if I'm you or me
Alone in this room with the moon and the sea
Listen to the space where she used to be
Another life away

Chorus

 

Stop

Ok stop, stop ! (spoken)
How long ?
Long enough to know I don't know any more
How deep ?Deep inside a surging red rider
How far ?
Far enough to see your shadow
How soon ?
Soon this will all be gone, all be gone

Now why can't you stop ?
Now why can't you just stop ?

How near ?
Nearly midnight in 1999's last party
How strange ?
Stranger than fiction to the ear
How much ?
Much more than I had ever hoped
How close ?
Close enough to know that we were gone, we were gone

Now why can't you stop ?
Now why can't you just stop ?

Wake up slowly, I've been sleeping four hundred years
All my memories all my feelings
All is revealed
Leave me gently, hear me faintly
Then discard...discard...discard
