DETONATE MY DREAMS (C. McLaughlin)

Endless train of thought running through my mind Things aren`t what they seem in these treacherous times Currents shift We swim against the tide Unbelievers dressed in smiling suede Can`t fill the void Can`t dull the blade All counterfeit and gimcrack cheats selling the truth This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high Fascination feeds on jagged lives With a silver palm and a bunch of fives Setting your feet on a one way street It`s a road to ruin! This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high Detonate my dreams Detonate my dreams Turning back the clock reverse in time Talking sideways with no reason or rhyme All by themselves in a private hell The chosen few This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high

HEY VENUS (C. McLaughlin)

For sure for sure and actual You swear by all that`s factual Insane elastic joy despair Figures dance and bebop Take me away from the drop I cannot help but stand and stare Sawdust casanovas Are dying to take over Lipstick on bankrolls it`s a deal Telling stinkin lies Cheap chat and shifty eyes Double the price you gotta steal Hey Venus Hey Venus Wants us all so bad Hope it drives her mad Holy Riders thinkers Kneejerks and lovesick drinkers Eyeball eachother through the haze Swapping tales of woe Ozone and GI Joe They can they do and guess who pays Hey Venus Hey Venus Wants us all so bad Hope it drives her mad Time to spit it out Wash it down the spout You don`t have to Kiss because you pout All those high hopes locked up inside Let `em out Put your doubt aside Hey Venus Hey Venus Wants us all so bad Hope it drives her mad Hey Venus Hey Venus Wants us all so bad Hope it drives her mad

SENSITIZE (C. McLaughlin)

Heard a secret and Saw you smilin` So convincing You`re so beguiling Leave me breathless and I can`t think straight at all Cold as starlight You sting like sunburn Searching blindfold you Melt my fingers Summer bleeds for you Testifies Ultrafervor Head to toe Sensitizes Burns and glows Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Avalanche Avalanche Avalanche Heard a secret and Saw you smilin` So convincing You`re so beguiling Leave me breathless and I can`t think straight at all Daunburst drowning Your favourite feelings Avalanches that chill all healing Spurning Indigo Celebrate Ultrafervor Head to toe Sensitizes Burns and glows Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Avalanche Avalanche Avalanche Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow

ANOTHER DAY (D. O`Néill)

Another day just to soothe this madness Another day on my own I look around just to see rain and sadness Don`t you look back not too soon Another day Can`t last forever I`ll just walk away From this forever I`m not so proud of these head and shoulders But much too proud to stand alone When you`re not here it`s like gravity is falling on me So here I stay in my room Another day Won`t last forever I`ll just walk away From this forever Another day spent in isolation Another day lost and gone I looked to you for some inspiration You walked away `n cut me down Another day Won`t last forever I`ll just walk away From this forever

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

GENIUS MOVE (C. McLaughlin)

Slaughterhouse number 5 Don't look at me with those empty eyes Anyway I don't care A shattered smile and a foolish stare Lovers can and lovers will Change a heart, take away the chill And even if I have regrets I know that I won't be upset Cos I've finally made my genius move It's kinda funny It's kinda the way she looks at me It's kinda funny It's kinda the way she looks at me Slaughterhouse number 5 Don't look at me with those empty eyes Anyway I don't care A shattered smile and a foolish stare It's kinda funny It's kinda the way she looks at me It's kinda funny It's kinda the way she looks at me

SWAMP (S. O´Néill)

When the cold wind blows And the air is damped with fear Can`t rely on the stars to die Untill the one you`re still holdin In a swamp In a swamp You`re just another bit tumbled You sit around the light You won`t feel on your knees Can`t feel it on your wife In a swamp Wake up every morning With concrete in the head You rather swallow up the freedom That all radiates instead In a swamp Down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down Going down down In a swamp In a swamp Yeah she said When the lights go dim Yeah she said When the lights go dim Yeah she said When the lights go dim Yeah she said When the lights go dim Yeah she said When the lights go dim Yeah she said When the lights go dim She said Yeah she said When the lights go dim Again Yeah she said When the lights go dim In the Swamp swamp In the Swamp swamp In the Swamp swamp swamp swamp swamp Swamp swamp When the cold wind blows And the air is damped with fear Can`t rely on the stars to die Until you see the one you`re Still Holdin In the swamp In the swamp

BIG DECISION (S. O´Néill)

See my honey in the streets It`s desolate but where she likes to meet Economies gets weaker Reactionaries stronger As they get satisfaction on their knees You rather sail the ocean Than make A big Decision I won`t function anymore Plastic bullets shoot headlines in store Business men get richer Individual stronger Bells won`t ring when scum boot down the door You rather sail the ocean Than make A big Decision What you`ve gotta do In this day and age You gotta agitate Educate Organize Take the time to live Take the time to give You gotta agitate Educate Organize See my honey in the street It`s desolate but where she likes to meet I`d like to keep her Make her even sweeter For anyone who cares to be with me You rather sail the ocean Than make A big Decision You rather sail the ocean Than make A big Decision What you`ve gotta do In this day and age You gotta agitate Educate Organize Take the time to live Take the time to give You gotta agitate Educate Organize

CREEPING TO THE CROSS (C. McLaughlin)

Ah ah Ah ah ... Well jingle And jangle Jingle Jangle Can`t slip a slide Can`t slip a slide It`s eternity You can`t walk the tight rope Without to say goodnight Time for such a tight face Stearing for his death So ashamed of shout It`s all plain luck So ashamed of shout It`s all plain luck Dreadtoy in plastic When the night goes on Dreadtoy in plastic When the night goes on And I`d rather be the devil than go Creeping to the cross Well jingle And jangle Jingle Jangle Can`t slip a slide Can`t slip a slide It`s eternity You can`t walk the tight rope Without to say goodnight Time for such a tight face Cueing for its death Ah ah Ah ah... And I`d rather be the devil than go Creeping to the cross Ah ah Ah ah... So ashamed of shout It`s all plain luck So ashamed of shout It`s all plain luck Dreadtoy in plastic When the night goes on Dreadtoy in plastic When the night goes on And I`d rather be the devil than go Creeping to the cross Ah ah Ah ah...

IT`S A GOOD THING (S. O`Néill)

Senses fail And we know why Indifference slides From every corner But I just want To be with you The silent screams Above each other It`s a good thing Such a good thing To do To do While governments gain All money can buy Trash means cash In any country But I just want To be with you Our flesh feels fresh And that`s the beauty It`s a good thing Such a good thing We do We do It`s a good thing Such a good thing We do

NATURAL KIND OF JOY (S. O`Néill)

Under a dark and silent moon Where lovers sigh and singers croon Looking for a natural kind of joy Secrets shared while cool lips kiss Their subterranean hearts ablaze You may find a natural kind of joy So whose lost the right To be alone in the night To go looking for a natural kind of joy Between the sheets Beneath the stars Soft to touch in each others arms Looking for a natural kind of joy So whose lost a right To be alone in the night To go searching for a natural kind of joy Nothings ever what it seems The last laugh could be on you

BLINDSPOT (S. O`Néill / R. O`Gormain)

Light a candle In your heart Watch it burn down Silently Try to recollect Your thoughts and fears As the flame dies They`re all to clear The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will When there`s no strenght Left in you No more time now For hopeless dreams Bleary eyes raise And start to fall To the sound Of tomorrow The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will On a freefall From innocence Subliminal wispers Crowd your room Forever haunted by Your own despair Your hopes evaporate Into thin air The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will When the day comes Still no one`s here So what`s the easy way To carry on Always reaching out For something else But in the smokescreen You`re lost again and again and again and again The Cavalry Bells say you will Say you will
