Track Name: Miasma
I see ya lookin', I see ya stare
But it aint just me, Oh, I swear
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVERYWHERE
Its on yr table, its in the chairs
Seepin' outta all the clothes you wear
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVERYWHERE

CH: you can smell it everywhere
cos you can smell it everywhere

If you got nothing to hide you got nothing to fear
the Priests runnin' outta dirty underwear
You can smell it everywhere
Yonder castles, thither weir
In wine boxes under Freedom Square
Cos you can smell it everywhere
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVERYWHERE

ch.
They say..."Back off! Or you'll never see again"
"Back off or you'll never read again"

Money LOVES, & Money FEARS
You need a little till Wolf gets here
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVRYWHERE
dont worry honey, you'll get yr share
if you bide yr time on the Union Chair
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVRYWHERE
YOU CAN SMELL IT EVRYWHERE
Track Name: Fair Warning
I smell a storm ahead
Or are you walking dead?
Cos if we're not insane
It kinda feels the same

Fair Warning
Fear Warning

Another talking head
Trying to dope the dead
But c'mon, its all a painted poise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise
Yeh, he's yr puppet fool
But from an Honoured school
O c'mon, its just a painful noise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise...

I've never seen a thing
To make me trust a king
Cos when he got no clothes
I feel a cold wind blow
Fair Warning
Fear Warning

Another fucking fool
Who never breaks the rules
Oh c'mon, he's just a painted poise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise
O well he's gettin' ahead
Livin' off the dead,
So c'mon, another naked noise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise

Yeh, Its hardly a mystery
He's forgetting the History
His Future is his Past
Think fast, no morning
Fair Warning
Fear Warning...

Another talking head
Trying to dope the dead
But c'mon, its all a painted poise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise
Yeh, he's yr puppet fool
But from an Honoured school
O c'mon, its just a naked noise
Of white noise, white noise, white noise
White noise...

Its hardly a mystery
We're forgetting our History
The Future is your Past
Think fast, no mourning
Fair Warning
Fear Warning ...
(ad nauseum)
Track Name: Living On Shame
face fire face fire face fire & the fortune is yrs
everythin you wanted and more
the rich die as a matter of course
buried by the shovels of the working poor

livin on shame

yr crucified with a walking frame
take fire take fire tgake fire at yr face again
misery misery misery's yr merriest friend
great smile great smile great smile
whilst yr measuring ends

livin on shame

i think i got my head on wrong
cut cut cut cut my faces off
you know that I've been dutiful to you
Am I the wrong tattoo?

livin on shame
Track Name: Snake Eyes
snake eyes wants to fight
& we just give in
cos we're snowblind
saving the world
one cigarette at a time
snake eyes wants to fight
wants to fight

I'm just releasing the pressure...

hey big fuckin man with yr big fucking car
we are so impressed
with yr junk heap mess
snake eyes, he wants to die ...
no balls
no bones
just a fly
justified

SO MUCH TIME

cant you see me?
cant you hear me?
Ask yrself: where are yr friends now
snake eyes
snake eyes

SO MUCH TIME
TIME
TIME
TIME
Track Name: Don't Know When To Stop
We're wading into winter but the snow is late
slight problem with the weather, I'm afraid
Wreckage on the highways every Friday night
you can set yr watch to it, If you like...

But you don't, no you don't
No you don't know when to stop

You say you just can't feel it & take another one
I need a drug that can really turn me on
I see yr eyes are open, But noone living there
Got the model thousand yard stare

Cos you don't ...no you don't
No you don't know when to stop x2

You say " Go get me another..."
You say "Go get me another, I'm straighening up!"
You say " Go get me another..."
You say " Get me another brother, I'm straighening up!"
Cos I really don't mind if my mind is blind
No, I really don't mind if I'm blind, I'm straightening up!
I'm straightening up!
No I really quite like when my mind is blind
I really don't mind I'm blind
Im straightening up!
Im breakin' up!

Cos you don't ...no you don't
No you don't know when to stop x2
Track Name: Sugar
OUR TIME
TIME IS GETTIN SHORT

A FOREGONE CONCLUSION

WHO ARE YOU WORKIN FOR?
ITS ALL AN ILLUSION
A FOREGONE CONCLUSION

Track Name: Metal-Heart
one she got caught in her smile
one she got stuck in her frame
one she got lodged in her oesophagus
the other got caught in her brain
but its absurd to tell you stories
yeh, its absurd to feed you follies
(much too busy, sorry...)

ch. In this cold cold heart

once you get pinned on the mattress
next thing, the world is yr stage
once you get caught with yr pants down
they're downloading you from a page
so just sew my hands together
yeh, just tie my hands together
(yeh, birds of a feather)

ch. in this cold cold heart

C'mon say what you say
I can take what you say
I can take what you say
I can break what you say
you may reap what you sow
but you never quite know
you never quite know
you'll never quite know

(walk down, walk down...
talk down, talk down...)

Track Name: Rituals
... This aint no Moon River
Dont tell me not to Blaspheme
cos you dont know
(you dont know...
You dont know...)

We are cartoons
Obscene
Squeaky cleeeeen...

(You dont know
You dont know..)
You dont know ...

What it means Free...
Free ...
(...Took a bullet in the side of the head...
Noone asked him if he wanted a bullet
In the side of his head...but thats what he got
but thats what he got...)

(you dont know...you dont know)

I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself
All the Catholic cheats
All the squeaky clean
I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself
All the promises
Are broken now
I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself...

Turn yr broken light on - I feel ill
From a sickened Generation born to Kill
& all yr beggars prayers are useless now
But I'm still dreaming...

I have to stop myself
I have to stop myself
Just to talk it straight
I have to stop myself
Took a bullet in the head
In the side of the head
I have to stop myself
I have to stop...

Turn yr broken light on - I feel ill
From a sickened Generation born to Kill
& all yr beggars prayers are useless now
But I'm still dreaming...
Turn yr broken light on To find yr soul
A halfwit education of Bullet holes
& all yr beggars prayers are useless now
But I keep dreaming...

(We hear All the Experts are in charge...
How much they dont know...look after themselves
Dont tell me not to Blaspheme
when you dont know
you dont know... )

Count to five...
The dogs are breathing now
Yeh, take another bullet
Take another bullet
Take another bullet

You dont know
You dont know...

We wont forget, dont worry
We wont forget
We dont forget,dont forget
We dont forget, dont forget
Forget...forget ...forget...Forget

You dont know
You ... dont ... Forget
