A Letter From Afar

No joy in heaven, although the sun may shine

I need the warmth of gin inside

I see the golden track, blurred in sand and dust

Where burnt out cars decay and rust, (march)

No joy in heaven, despite the glittering stars

Their jagged shapes just tear my heart

Between the sand and stone

The flowers of hope may grow

Then trodden on by commandos, (march)

Chanting these words out like a prayer

Hoping someone’s listening up there

Reach for a face that isn’t here

Fooled by my mind I fear …..

A letter from afar

Too much is not enough

I need to feel your touch

I need to have you close to me

Desert sons and guns

Mosquito nets and bombs

I watch them from my swimming pool, (splash)

A letter from afar

Blind Allegiance

 

Why is it such a crime

To have an open mind

Caught in the big decline

Crisis all the time

Left with this open wound

A legacy of lust

Storm clouds begin to loom

Ominous above

Why is it such a crime

To have a way of life

That’s outside the dotted line

They draw for us

Beggars and millionaires

Ugly, bad and good

Daughters and sons despair

Where is Robin Hood

Empires and kingdoms die

What keeps their souls alive

Blind Allegiance, blind allegiance

Empires and kingdoms die

What keeps their souls alive

Blind Allegiance, blind allegiance

Why is it such a crime

To feel humility

Into the politics of possibility

Healing this open wound

A destiny for us

Blue skies break through the gloom

The future lies with us

Arctic Summer

 

Angel standing at my cradle

Haunting every thought and every dream

Entering my blood so gently

Like malaria, she flows through me

Now it will be an arctic summer

I’m a haunted house and no one’s home

Now it will be an arctic summer

I’m the wolf that walks alone

Softly, softly slow but surely

Time erodes the memories of pain

The sun is dripping in the ocean

With it drowns another day

The wind is cold, it blows and blows

A hurricane into my soul

Like Jericho, when trumpets blow

My kingdom falls and winter calls my name

It will be an arctic summer

Waiting for the ice to thaw again

Now it will be an arctic summer

Loving you the hardest way

And rivers flow and sunsets glow

With shooting stars and tides of gold

But all I know , is ice and snow

Without your love there’s nothing left at all

Nothing left at all, nothing left at all

Amnesia

 

Kid Jensen BBC Radio 1 session broadcast 6/4/1982

 

The morning call rings in my ears

The sunshine floods in through the blinds

The radio screams out a rhythm

I hold my head and rub my eyes

Where did I go? What did I say? I can’t remember it today Oh, yeah …

I try some free association

To see what comes into my mind

Some images keep on recurring

A pretty girl bottles of wine

Oh, amnesia, oh, amnesia

I feel my body start to tremble

A cold chill runs down my spine

A lipstick message in a mirror,

“I won’t forget you, Caroline.””

Where did I go? What did I say? I can’t remember it today

I try to focus in a mirror, there is something there

Amnesia, oh Amnesia, oh

I think I’ll take a cold shower

To see what comes into my mind

And afterwards things are much clearer

I won’t forget you, Caroline

I won’t forget you, Caroline

I couldn’t forget you if I tried

I won’t forget you,Caroline

I couldn’t forget you if I tried

AGE OF ILLUSION

Album track

(Age of Illusion released 2014 No Emo Blanc records)

Here she comes now, she’s an angel but

on the inside she is like a devil

We adore her, wanna be her

Escape reality and then destroy her

Here she comes the lovely ghost

dressed in the emperor’s new clothes

In the age of illusion nothing is real

In the age of illusion, it’s artificial

Here he comes now, Mr. Hollow

Making promises that we must follow

The truth is out there go and find it

Look through his disguise and see what

lies behind it

Follow faithfully like dogs and

worship your digital Gods

CAREFUL OF DREAMS

Track Distant Skies EP 2013

A dream of silence in a sea of blue

To swim with dolphins is a dream come true

In paradise, the sharks reside.

Be careful of dreams,

dreams they can destroy you.

Be careful of dreams,

they might come true.

I had a dream

and I found myself drowning

in a dream called you.

A

glimpse of heaven from a house made of

stoneThe

walls, a castle;This

chair, a throne.Under

palace floors, the rats hold court

Tread

carefully,there

might be monsters.Even

saints cast shadows.I

worshipped your name,the

face of an angel,with

the soul of a devil

CORRIDORSAlbum

Track (Climate of Fear – released 18/03/16)

Empty

spaces, distant voicesKeep

on running turning cornersDown

the corridors

Never

ending, going nowhereDestination,

getting furtherDown

the corridors

day I’ll find my own way out of this dark placeOne

day I’ll see the light and I’ll disappear without trace

Voices

FOREVER

RUNNINGAlbum

track, Forever Running, released Sire records, 1985

Life,

in a quiet town I felt that I might drownIn

obscurity Like a hermitI

always seemed to be in bedWith

stacks of books I should have readLike

Kerouac, Virginia Woolf & GenetIt

seems to me, the place to beIs

far away from hollow dreamsThat

satisfy the few and not the many

You,

you turn my world aroundYou,

you turn me upside down

And

everything that you doAnd

everything that you sayJust

keeps me running to be right next to youAnd

every time that we meetthe

earth moves under my feetI

melt in your body heatI

can’t compete

Down,

from the barren slopesTo

the plain belowWhere

the city sleeps I took my two feetThey

say tomorrow’s all aboutMistakes

we make, and there’s no doubtI

have made so many I can’t count themForget

the past and move on fastAway

from dreams that never lastForever

gunning, forever running

You

turn my world aroundYou,

you turn me upside down

With

everything that you doI’m

not afraid what Virginia Woolf might doAnd

every word that you sayFrom

the balcony I’ll throw Jean GenetWith

everything that you doKeeps

me running to be right next to youAnd

everything that you sayForever

running, forever running

HEART

OF GOLDAlbum

track, Forever Running, released Sire records, 1985

She

circles round me like a glowing wheel tonightPrecious

soul, heart of goldAlthough

she has no money she is rich in kindTreasure

trove, heart of goldSo

I get drunk on her elixir of lifeThat

overflows from her heart of goldThen

I get burnt as the immortal flame ignitesAnd

starts to glow in her heart of gold

Here

in this Russian winterOutside

it’s twelve belowAnd

in this prison chamberShe

melts the ice between my toesWith

a heart of gold

Yes

it’s the thought that countsThe

thought that caresThe

thought that can’tBe

overthrown in a heart of goldNo,

she will not be silentShe

will not be toldDespite

the cold, her heart is gold

JUST

AN ECHOAlbum

track, Forever Running, released Sire records, 1985

cut in twoA

taunting smileBewildered

and bewitchedI’ve

come unstitched

I

thought, I saw you smile at meBut

it was meant for someone else to findI

thought, I heard you say my nameBut

it was just an echo in my mind

These

desperate hoursAs

brittle as a leafAn

imprisoned thiefLike

Ingrid BergmanSo

fragile and divineWhen

she said her lines

OTHER

PEOPLE’S LIVESAlbum

The

secrets and the liesThe

truth behind the smilesof

other people’s livesIt’s

really interestingWe

only ever see what we’re supposed to seeThey’re

just like you and mebut

far more interesting

Other

people’s worlds are more fascinatingThat’s

why we never tire of sticking the boot inI

want to know all the informationLet’s

dig some dirtI

got to know what’s happening

I

don’t know how she does itThree

kids and a Cocaine habitIt’s

morally reprehensible of courseBut

in this day and age it’s just par for the course

machinery devoid of loveSwitch

With

a footstep on the iceOn

the other side is paradiseThat’s

the risk we have to takeOr

we never move away from base

The

hands on the clock were goingRound

and round and round and roundTime

on, love flows through your eyesSwitch

off, love goes and we lie againLie

again, lie again oh oh oh !

With

a promise written in your heartTake

a mighty jump into the darkFace

the fear, face to faceAnd

the dark becomes a friendly place

WALKING

DEADSession

track Radio Trent 1980

Remembering

the times when we used to play games in the back of my carMemories

of an afternoon spent with you and Bogart in the cinemaBut

now you’re gone I only hear the sound of the factory life machineI

lie awake in bed put the pillow to my head and I daydream

In

the time honoured manner of someone that’s lost his loverI

don’t need a friendSo

I’ll watch the world go by as a tear forms in my eyes when I hear

them sayHe’s

like the walking dead

Remembering

the times when we used to go walking down the country lanesand

the birds and the sky and the leaves and the trees and the wind and

rainbut

now you’re gone I only hear the sound of the wined howling through

my doorWhen

someone rings my bell I just crawl into my shell and pretend no-one’s
