THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM PSYCHOSIS BLUES The Lyrics



SOONER OR LATER (S. O'Néill / D. O'Néill / S. Mack)

In the beginning I used to sit around at home Until I found I couldn`t tell right from wrong And go searching for the things That would help to keep me Holding on I`d dumbly smile In the shelter of my lonely room My lips would part Disguising the saddest gloom The raw land rolls where night`s lit by a tragic moon Backhand deal`s what the whole world feels Sooner or later Shatters every beat of my heart Of my heart The unsighted shores Of the undone bird that blesses me From angel strands To the blatant factories Inflicting all their pains while ignoring other`s Misery Backhand deal`s what the whole world feels Sooner or later Shatters every beat of my heart Of my heart

EVERY LITTLE BIT (S. O'Néill)

The factory fleshtones The neon green lines Either lovers or losers A million meantimes Darling I`ve fallen` But every bit hurts The great open skies Just make it seem worse The blankets are beaten The coffee`s grown cold A sweetheart complexion That never seems old Darling I`ve fallen` But every bit hurts The great open skies Just make it seem worse The lonely days The longest nights The simple things That make it right The lonely days The longest nights The simple things That make it right Darling I`ve fallen` But every bit hurts The great open skies Just make it seem worse Darling I`ve fallen` But every bit hurts The great open skies Just make it seem worse Darling I`ve fallen` But every bit hurts The great open skies Just make it seem worse

CELLOPHANE (S. O'Néill)

In a world and in it`s sounds In any street in any town I go There`s a wreckage of desire Of feelings never hired or sold Where cellophane and thunder always come And the factories of fantasies belong I can only find the murder machine I can only find the murder machine From a notion of the times To the hoodlum kitchen minds that die From every mutant hour To those who have the power who don`t try Where the surplus sounds of sanity grow hoarse And an abject slave mentality gets worse I can only find the murder machine I can only find the murder machine

CANDY LOVE SATELLITE (S.O'Néill / S. Mack)

Whenever she comes Time it stands still Whatever she`s done Time it stands still The damage she`s done The damage she`s done Candy love satellite Whenever she comes There`s no reaction to me Whenever she comes She`s comes you can`t see The damage she`s done The damage she`s done Like some judge no reaction to me Candy love satellite When she puts her eyes on me Rocketships far as I can see Gotta watch my velocity I`m falling too fast she`s a hazard to me Heavenly she looks divine Moving past the speed of time My head`s in orbit My mouth is wet Look out now `Cos here she comes again Whatever she`s done There`s no protection for me Stranger than no fiction Like a stranger she seems The secrets she keeps Her mystery fueled By the secrets she keeps Candy love satellite Candy love satellite Candy love satellite

THE PRICE OF MY SOUL (C. McLaughlin)

In your poisoned mind Bloated by your reign Are your feelings dead Sacrificed for gain Oversights will shout Contradictions scream Pay them no heed In your warped daydream Blissful ignorance betrays you All your false virtues will craze you Your sense of justice will turn round and will betray you Broken hearts can wield more power Than a champagne life turned sour Your alibies are growing weaker by the hour You`ve forgotten to look `round you Maybe privilege makes you blind And arrogance ignores the lessons The ones I know we`ll keep in mind Buying self-respect Plastic happiness It`s a house of straw It`s a cash caress But it`s out of bounds There`s no way you could afford Or try to understand The price that`s on my soul You`ve forgotten to look `round you Maybe privilege makes you blind And arrogance ignores the lessons The ones I know we`ll keep in mind

GROOVE CHECK (C. McLaughlin / R. O`Gormain / S. Mack)

TENSION (S. O'Néill / C. McLaughlin / R. O`Gormain)

In struggle for self determination Progress and change must soon be seen The pain endured Though you haven`t heard a word Of truth from corrupt authorities People say what People like But when the tension burn it`s like Dynamite We`ve had oppression And mass manipulation The cencorship of soul`s a tragedy No more sleepless nights Just for the civil rights Of expressing our own identities People say what People like And when the tension burn it`s like Dynamite So think of Seamus Heany Won`t make you feel alone O`Faolain Joyce and Macken Digging for our souls So think of Seamus Heany Won`t make you feel alone O`Faolain Joyce and Macken Digging for our souls People say what People like But when the tension burn it`s like Dynamite Suppressive midget minds creating A bankruptcy of hate against belief But we`re making giant strides Of knowledge love and pride Resilience of spirit still remains People say what People like But when the tension burn it`s like Dynamite Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing ever changes Nothing

TIRED SHATTERED MAN (D. O'Néill / R. O`Gormain)

Tired shattered man I do the best I can Tired shattered man I do the best The best I can First impressions tell a part of the story Broken dreams in the shadows that follow me First impressions tell a part of the story Broken dreams in the shadows that follow me Tired shattered man I do the best I can Tired shattered man I do the best The best I can Double standards point the way to hypocrisy Cynicism and a fatal discovery Double standards point the way to hypocrisy Cynicism and a fatal discovery Tired shattered man I do the best The best I can Tired shattered man I do the best The best I can Always hoping it would all be so clear to me All I find is a tide of uncertainty I was hoping that you wanted to fool me All I find is a tide of uncertainty Always hoping it would all be so clear to me Now I know that you`re just out of reach to me Always hoping it would all be so clear to me Now I know that you`re just out of reach to me Out of reach Do do Do do do do do Do do Do do do do do Do do do do do Do do do do do

GOGGLEBOX (C. McLaughlin / S. Mack)

You were once sugarcoated Now you`ve got a drugged embrace All your brains have been scrambled And I cannot stand the taste I was going going going down I can`t take it I can`t take it I can`t take it no more Stooges swear at each other Hieroglyphic tongues that twist Take a look at what`s offered Proffered cheek and Judas kiss For this TV creed that aims to please Washes whiter cures disease My head`s aching My heads cracking in two Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox An electric connection Where the modern lovers meet Make your reptile selection Bask in radiation heat Do you wonder why you want to cry Each time you try to close your eyes I`m gonna smash it I`m gonna smash it apart Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Decimate the Gogglebox

UNDER THE SKY (C. McLaughlin / R. O`Gormain)

Fourteen floors high And I`ve lost my tongue All I want is yesterday And today has just begun Newsprint and loose change In the ashtray that`s my heart This chain could stretch for evermore Without an end without a start Still this sickness lingers on Sweat soaked dreams and I`m falling apart Though I`ve looked a thousand times Nothing human comes to mind Fourteen floors high And I`ve lost my tongue All I want is yesterday And today has just begun Newsprint and loose change In the ashtray that`s my heart This chain could stretch for evermore Without an end without a start Feels like psychosis closing in When all the world inspires is fright No sense of freedom just denial Why limit dreams to black and white
