Track Name: One Voice
There's a new generation that's sick of blowing in the wind.
The love cures all mentality is finally coming to an end.
And now it's time to wake up, oh, oh and see.
And now it's time to wake up, oh, oh and see.
ONE VOICE... ONE VOICE... ONE VOICE... ONE VOICE.
I'm not a statistician but you don't need much expertise to see
The situation like some incurrable disease.
And now it's time to wake up... ONE VOICE... ONE VOICE...
And here it comes again. And here it comes again.
And now it's time to wake up, oh, oh and see...
ONE VOICE... ONE VOICE
Track Name: Lagonda Lifestyle
You got to see reason you've gotta believe me...
There's a smiling face on my wall... a manufactured vision
With no grey matter at all, this is no state to be in.
Some call her perfect but I call it plastic, the suntan,
The lip gloss, no need for elastic.
You're only fulfilled if you own a LAGONDA and
Beautiful people are bound to last longer.
You've gotta see reason you've gotta believe me.
The smoked glass window's designed to keep away distractions.
There's no fresh air from outside, I can't believe this actress.
You've found the right place for a meal or a sauna,
We cater for meetings and massage and mourners.
Those champions of business who like their conventions are boring
By nature and ruled by consensus.
You've gotta see reason you've gotta believe me.
I try to stretch out my limbs - the films moved out of focus.
Can't hear the words on the phone she's not too tired to notice.
They're talking next door 'cos my earlobes are burning.
I've switched off the water but still it keeps churning.
The film's given way to a black and white snow storm.
Reception just called me and said turn the noise down
Track Name: Watching You
I've been WATCHING YOU.
You've been watching me.
Sixteen turkeys squashed together underground.
Sixteen eyes preparing not to meet.
Don't you read his paper or he'll shake the thing about.
And never touch a woman with your feet.
Don't think I didn't see. I've been WATCHING YOU. Everybody's equal on the moving
stairs.
The businessmen rub shoulders with the street, shifting for position to observe the girl's
behind, it's really not that hard to be discrete. Don't think I wouldn't see. I've been
WATCHING YOU. A black man in a hurry stumbles into me and when I fall he offers me
his hand. A crowd of eyes has gathered looking morfified - there's no united nations in
this town. Don't think I didn't see.
Track Name: Carousel
The alcohol had made him sweat.
He had trouble in lighting his cigarette.
He'd spilt his drink so his cuff was wet when she moved on to the floor.
CAROUSEL... vermilion nails and a painted face.
So young and full of experience.
He felt alone till he heard her sing, then it made him want to
Cry - CAROUSEL...
Never in his life had he felt so warm as when she came up to his
Table and touched his chin. He closed his eyes... it almost broke his hearf.
He was lying in those sensual arms, when a waiter spotted his
Sleeping form.
He shook his dreams, he awoke in pain and was thrown out in the road.
CAROUSEL.
Never in his life had he felt so cold as when he bounced
Into the neon outside.
He closed his eyes... it almost broke his heart. CAROUSEL
Track Name: That's Enough For Me
Thoughts of a child, echoes of Sunday afternoon.
Things don't improve with time.
She doesn't stir... l've watched the clock till I despaired... but I
Can't close my eyes.
I'll never ga home without deceiving you. The night goes on...
Her shoulders gently rise and fall...
L fight those fears away...
There must be more the other side of our front door I wish that I could stay...(That's enough) I'll never go home, without deceiving you.
THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME... I'll never go home again.
THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME... without deceiving you.
The day begins...
Her soft brown skin reflects the light... l start to feel it's all wrong.
I'm like a ghost that only functions in the night,
I wander home alone.
THAT'S ENOUGH... walking away with my eyes closed...
I KNOW IT NOW.
Too much to say to die today...
L didn't know till I was drowning just how afraid a man could be.
The icy water dragged me down...
L KNOW IT NOW.
I saw the children on the beach...
The summer day ignores distress calls.
Survival seemed beyond my reach.
They didn't know that I was scared.
I KNOW IT NOW...
Someone's talking to me...
But I can't hear what they say...
The situation was bizarre I didn't know if I was dreaming.
I thought of you alone without me. I didn't want an angel's wings.
I KNOW IT NOW
Track Name: I Know It Now
I KNOW IT NOW.

L KNOW IT NOW.

Survival seemed beyond my reach.
They didn't know that I was scared.

Track Name: Victims Of Fashion
Sitting freezing in the cafe by the exit to the ladies room...
Cappucino to the history of the age of soul.
Marvin and Diana singing duets tape recorded from the radio,
recognise the situation so well.
There you go, hiding your eyes...
There you go...
Victims of fashion

Waitress from the arf school drawing on a red-stained filter...
Bet you won't flick your hair back for me.
Looking bored 'cos there's no one here to see you...
Watching out tor your friends in the street...
There you go... hiding your eyes...
There you go
Victims of fashion

They're turning their backs on me and walking away
There you go...
Victims
Track Name: Speaking A Different Language
Everything smells today...
Wish it would go away...
Out of your mind with anguish...
SPEAKING A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE.
Red in the face...
Red in the soul, trying too hard to be impressive...
0ut of work people are always scared, but why must it be you?
No heart, no soul, no place to go.
Where is the sense of justice.
Not a way out, there must be.
Find that your worth's in question...
Hard to accept rejection...
Take up the challenge, go out in the street.
Answer the advert and make yourself sweet...
Join all the people doing the same all day long.
No heart, no soul, no place to go...
You're so afraid
Track Name: Involuntary Movement
Your shadow passes by, INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENT.
A straight back and suggestive eye...
And for my part...
L don't see any harm in staring...
Clothes tell lies...
L noticed... Mascara lines... l noticed...
Don't be cool.
They're not filming you.
This woman's spending the vast proportion of her time in chains...
A warm horizon is no compensation for a wasted day...
And for my part...
L don't see any harm in staring-
Clothes tell lies...
L noticed...
Mascara lines. I noticed.
Don't be cool. They're not filming you
Track Name: Relax
There's a tape deck intro...
A standard I know...
The singing chicken is clearing her throat...
Everybody is trying not to laugh...
Everybody...
My friends all eating...
There's nothing to fear.
My worlds worst enemy...
And I'm lonely out here.
Everybody living on their nerves.
Everybody...
RELAX - Just sit back...
Oh, it's easy...
Oh, it's time to pay.
The London evening is settled again.
I look behind me but I've lost those grey men.
Everybody is trying not to Iaugh...
Everybody...
RELAX... Just sit back...
0ooh. It's easy
