Lyrics: Paul Allen
Music: Paul Allen
The curl of a whirlpool in the corner of your thoughts
Voice behind the static on the radio at night
You heard it as a child on your way home from school
Just a hint of feedback that grows into a scream
Watch a crystal snowflake that melts in the sun
It glows for an instant then its rainbow is gone
Tremble of an earthquake that rattles your bones
Quiet sting of heartache that makes you moan
The smell of something burning somewhere on your floor
Right around the corner or it could be next door
You can hear a pounding and it isnít far away
Canít reach the phone to keep the wolves at bay
You're stuck behind the wheel with nowhere to drive
Threads of an illusion keep you alive
Fingers are still moving as they tap on the keys
The song that writes itself or so you believe

Too late now remind me
Too late now unwind me
Too soon now Iím frozen
Too soon now itís over

Once upon a time long ago sweet sunshine
Last summer dance thunderstorm first romance
Seems my life is flyiní fast,
Faces, names drifting past
Deeds were done and stories told
Now the fire is growing cold

Slow down the seasons
Heartache is strong
Time has its reasons

Oh willow tree hear it cry but not for me
Hey old scarecrow your fields of corn are under snow
Seems my life is flyiní fast
Sand slips through the hourglass
My eyes are tired canít turn the page
Time for others to take the stage


Slow down the seasons
Heartache is gone
Time has its reasons

Seems my life is flyiní fast couldnít make the good times last
Pull up a chair and have a smoke, pour a drink and share a joke

Slow down the seasons
Heartache is long
Time has its reasons

Lyrics: Paul Allen
Music: Terry Davison
I was born without much charm
Set off every false alarm
Combed my slick hair back
No one would cut me a bit of slack
Everything I do may seem wrong
But my heart, my heart beats strong

Every job is a pointless trap
Glare at me but Iím glariní right back
Lock the door and Iíll tear it down
Iím not gonna be your kind of clown
Everything I do may seem wrong
But my heart, my heart beats strong

Iím no ticking time bomb, my time, my time wonít be long
Watch the seconds scream past, but if I go, Iím gonna go in a flash
Iím gonna explode, Iím gonna explode

Underestimate me if you want
I can take every jeer and taunt
Donít even try to box me in a corner
The fire I set will be made to order

Iím no ticking time bomb, My time, my time wonít be long
Watch the seconds scream past, If I go, Iím gonna go in a flash
Iím gonna explode, Iím gonna explode

The way you roll those snake eyes
I see trouble down the line
When you roll those snake eyes
You can hear your mama cry

You shake those snake hips
I can feel a fever coming on
If you purse those full lips
Thatís when I should be gone

Just let me escape one more time
I know your poison is in my veins
Just let me escape the scene of the crime

Youíre fast asleep
Without a bead of sweat
Youíre fast asleep
Thinking I should be your pet

You walk thru hot coals
Wouldnít even burn your skin
Iím running like a lost soul
But Iím close to giving in

Donít you wish it was a pretty picture
What is takiní place out there
All the screaminí and the fighting
Donít seem to leave us anywhere
When it looks like some things are better
Half the rest take a turn for the worse
If our vision were any clearer
We could imagine peace on earth
Peace on Earth

But itís tooth and nail scratch and claw
Tooth and nail, win lose or draw
Tooth and nail scratch and claw
Tooth and nail and thatís the law

Some wait for divine intervention
Or the crews of friendly UFOís
To lift them up with rosy daydreams
Above the desert where nothing grows
When you follow the instructions to the letter
That just means it never works
If you looked deep in the mirror
We could imagine peace on earth
Peace on Earth

Maybe now you get your wish
Put your money where your mouth is.
Turn my brain into a jellyfish
Tell all my friends about it.
I lost what the meaning was
Now you hurt me just because
Sometimes your torture is such fun
I donít mind call me when itís said and done.

Yeah call me when itís said and done.
Yeah call me when itís said and done.

If you want me to feel some pain
Put my head in a vice grip
Would you like me to go insane
Do you think I like it
I canít tell what you want me to do
Or what it takes to satisfy you
Cut my fingers off one by one
I donít mind call me when itís said and done.

Yeah call me when itís said and done.
Yeah call me when itís said and done.

Lyrics: Paul Allen
Music: Paul Allen/Terry Davison
I remember your warmth next to me
The sound of your breathing, like the sea

Was it so long ago, that rhythm of hearts
Was it so far away, we fell apart

At the end of the road, I see you standing there
You call out my name & brush back your hair
But wishing wonít bring us together again
Can love that was broken, find some way to mend

Was it so long ago, that rhythm of hearts
Was it so far away, we fell apart

That rhythm of, that rhythm of, that rhythm of hearts.

Yesterday another letter, when I walked in the door
Iíll add it to the many others you sent me before.
You don't have to draw a picture I know what you mean
The only thing that really matters
Is in your dreams

You are the lucky one, Iím just the sorry fool
Youíll have the ever after, I will have nothing to do
When youíre in paradise, Iíll be in outer space
When you fall in that black hole, Iíll be a shooting star

From your description I see the vision, I think I understand
Complications and frustrations, seem to go hand in hand
Every time I think about it, it always comes out the same
I guess thatís where I start to doubt it, when I hear that same old refrain

You are the lucky one, Iím just the sorry fool
Youíll have the ever after, I will have nothing to do
When youíre in paradise, Iíll be in outer space
When you fall in that black hole, Iíll be a shooting star

Have we lost control over what we say and do
Wrapped around a finger, I had to be your fool.
You spin your web of silver dust, I canít find my voice.
Nothing left what could I do I had no choice.
I had no choice
I had no choice


In black you sit inside the dark with fifty telephones
I call you at the ICU, but you pick up at home.
If only I could stop the clock, silence all the noise
But you must know before I go I had no choice.
I had no choice
I had no choice

Why do you hide inside a lie?
The aftermath of jealousy.
I cross my heart and hope to die
What I would give to make you see.
I had no choice

My sweet mushroom cloud
My sweet mushroom cloud
Shelters are full, laughing out loud
All of the generals are part of the plan
Treaties are over. To hell with test bans

Millions have planned and worked for this day
Ttargets are locked in itís missiles away
Brighter than the sunniest day
Itís falling, weíre falling, itís tumbling down

Pillars of fire, rivers of tears
Trigger is cold, Iíll never forgive

Load neutron warheads in the bomb bay
Megaton yields are never passeí
Brighter than the sunniest day
Itís falling, weíre falling, itís tumbling down

Radioactive alpha decay
Light up the heavens and show us the way
Brighter than the sunniest day
Itís burning, itís boiling, itís melting down

Gardens of stone
Ghosts that walk there alone
In the moonlight weíll see
All thatís meant to be

Desert holds the sky
The river's flood has run dry
But the sun gives us light
Morning follows the night

Falling star you have come to earth
And you are home at last
Falling star you have brought us here
Out of the past

Carry their souls
Out of this garden of stone
Remember a smile
Not journeyís longest mile

Thereís time to build
Hopes left unfulfilled
So raise up your eyes
To Heavenís glorious skies

Lyrics: Paul Allen
Music: Paul Allen/Terry Davison
In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king
I thought I had an answer , but I did not know a thing.
In the streets and in the sky, the wind whistles and sighs.
Wipe away the memories , blot out all the lies.
In the restaurants and bars, people laugh and pass the time.
Waiting for the moment, itís too late to define.
Skyscrapers tower over the dirty streets and smog.
Walk alone in quiet, hidden in the fog

The last place you will find me,
As the sun sinks down behind me
The last place you have shown me,
Is the kingdom, the kingdom of the lonely

You can touch my heart, you can make it race
But the minute you are gone, the joy is out of place
The fire flutters like a leaf, warm and bright at night
It burns away the hurt, but it cannot shine the light

I hold you by the hand, then you slip away
Every move we make is clear. As clear as night and day.
In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.
I thought I saw too deep, but I was blind to everything.

Iím lost, lost in a maze
Walkiní around day after day in a haze
Canít, canít find my way out
Iím stricken, Iím stricken with millions of doubts
Every time I turn around
Am I lost or am I found

Iím lost, lost in a maze
Wonderiní wonderiní what will be the next phase
In the middle of the deep blue sea
Donít know whatís in store for me
Iím lost

Fragments, fragments of dreams
Putting the pieces together isnít easy as it seems
If I get another chance
Gonna break out of this trance
I'm lost, I'm lost, I'm lost
Lost in a maze
I'm lost, lost in a maze

History shapes the way things are
But not your point of view
If you would reach for distant stars
Youíll need some different shoes

Did you say ďthatís just too long a shot?Ē
That lifeís secure when tethered to one spot
Just cut and fade to black Mr. Nothing

Live a slave to broken dreams
And keep ambitions meek
Or leap with faith across the stream
To claim the prize you seek

Did you say ďthatís just too long a shot?Ē
That lifeís secure when tethered to one spot
Just cut and fade to black Mr. Nothing

The gate stands open wide the road is yours to run
When doubts are cast aside your battles will be won
