DEGENERATED MAN

degenerated man
degenerated man
saw a man that once was me
no escaping, no escaping

degenerated man
degenerated man
alone I climb his spiral mind
screechin' scratchin' everywhere

degenerated man
degenerated man
don't look now I might be crying
don't look now I might be dying
I saw you I could not focus
I touched you I could not feel you

degenerated man
degenerated man
degenerated man
degenerated man
alone I climb his spiral mind
screechin' scratchin' everywhere

degenerated man
degenerated man
don't look now I might be crying
don't look now I might be dying
I saw you I could not focus
I touched you I could not feel you

degenerated more than any form of human lives
degenerated an animal being
oh you're so, yes you're so
degenerated, degenerated man
degenerated, degenerated man

I CRY

?
je pleure, je pleure

I cry, I cry, I cry, I cry

hey little boy your body's so soft so warm
come with me my darling
you won't know that you've ever been born

I cry, I cry, I cry, I cry

the lonely city
alone, alone I cry
all those faceless people keep passing me by

I cry, I cry, I cry, I cry

hey little boy
you come with me, come walk with me
I'll show you scenes in the city
that you boy have never seen

DID YOU SEE HER?

did you see her looking round the empty room
did you feel her anguish, feel her gloom
did you see her lying on the empty bed
did you think of the things you should have said

did you see her, did you see her

all alone at night she waits
for someone to call but he's always late
did you see her looking at the empty bed
did you think of the things you should have said

did you see her, did you see her

all alone at night she waits
for someone to call but he's always late
did you see her looking round the empty bed
do you know the things that go on in her head

did you see her, did you see her

did you see the blood as it rushed from her vein
did you feel her heart break, feel her pain
did you see her looking at the empty bed
did you think of the things you should have said

did you see her, did you see her

did you see her cry
did you see her as knelt to die
tears in her eyes
I watched her cry
tears in her eyes
did I see you cry

WILD WEST

wild west
my spurs can rip your back for pain or pleasure
wild west
I've worn these boots since I was seventeen
wild west
I screw the bank for just one silver dollar
wild west, wild west, wild west
as wild as me
wild west
I saw my grave, I saw my epitaph
wild west
broke the law gee, I had a laugh
wild west
now I'm dead can set my six gun free
wild west wild west wild west
as wild as me

all you cowboys on the prairie
bareback riding won't you take me
on your leather spurs
bareback riding won't you take me

wild west
my spurs will rip your back for pain or pleasure
wild west
I've worn these boots since I was seventeen
wild west
I screw the bank for just one silver dollar
wild west, wild west, wild west

BACK ON THE LONDON STAGE

back on the London stage
we sailed away, oh we sailed away
back on the London stage
maybe one day we'll have time to argue
looking for London pride
we'll watch your day but we'll keep away from you
back on the London stage

listen darling listen listen
listen look and learn
what's the reason for my hypertension
listen darling listen darling
listen look and learn
what's the reason for this great pretention

back on the London stage
I try to reason with this black emotion
looking for London ?
to hold me up when the lights get heavy
back on the London stage
I've got to look I've got to learn oh
back on the London stage

listen darling listen listen
listen look and learn
what's the reason for my hypertension
listen darling listen listen
listen look and learn
what's the reason for this great pretention

little girl look and little boy stare
little girl look and little boy stare
what's a moon daddy what's a moon oh
what's a moon daddy what's a moon oh
what's a moon daddy won't you tell me what a moon is
what's a moon daddy won't you tell me what a moon is
what's a moon daddy won't you tell me what a moon is
what's a moon daddy won't you tell me what a moon is

back on the London stage
we sailed away, oh we sailed away
back on the London stage
maybe one day we'll have time to argue
looking for London pride
we'll watch your day but we'll keep away from you
back on the London stage
back on the London stage
back on the London stage
we're back on the London stage

AFTER HIROSHIMA

love is a word for all those who care
touching me there climbing the stair
if you say you care you'll stand by the foot
if you say you dare the stork is the bird

no stunted love
no stunted love
people with love, love

love is a word for all those who care
touching me there climbing the stair

no stunted love
no stunted love
people with love, love

after Hiroshima came the storm

LIVING IN A JUNGLE

we're living in a jungle
hey
we're living in a jungle
you're living in a jungle
walking round
watches, watches life
thought the ?
see him dance
move near
backwards
the woman screams
look past
the final man
alone
we've got all the answers
assembling thoughts
this is the snake

DREAMTIME

look through the window
that never was mine
reflections of people
that never cry
in dreamtime
in dreamtime

lithe lust
picks the shape up
lithe lust
and my part is hard
in dreamtime
in dreamtime

flying in the dark
a lady sound
nobody bursts in another world
in dreamtime
in dreamtime


listen through the lies of distant times
this is my world and my world is mine
in dreamtime
in dreamtime

WAR GAMES

high command decrees we'll attack at noon
intelligence says it's none too soon
deep in my foxhole the telephone rings
informing me of craters and other things
war games
war games
war games
war games

the high pitched voice of a duty sub
telegraph wires that send me love
task force one in another name
a small disguise I take no blame
war games
war games
war games
war games

high command decrees we'll attack at noon
intelligence says it's none too soon
deep in my foxhole the telephone rings
informing me of craters and other things
a high pitched voice of a duty sub
telegraph wires that send me love
task force one in another name
a small disguise I take no blame
war games
war games
war games
war games

those exciting weapons should keep it down
snipers expected so breathe he ran
of war games
war games
war games
war games

DO ANIMALS BELIEVE IN GOD ?

pulled the rip chord
floated down
down through the layers of cloud
black and gold
watch the TV
saw the children lying, crying
a long time ago
light a cigarette
walk into a bar
didn't know we'd gone so far
pulls his trenchcoat tighter
walked into the road
didn't see the car
he must be getting old
do you, do I believe?
do you, do I believe?

it could be Kennedy looking for a gun
it could be Churchill who still thinks he won
and as the clowns dance round
someone else was found
hiding in the robes of love
do you, do I believe?
do you, do I believe?

they nailed him to a cross
he thought his cause was lost
he didn't know that it just began
and as the clock went round
he started gaining ground
and no-one thought he might be lying
do you, do I believe?
do you, do I believe?
do you, do I believe in God ?
