FINAL FLAME The Lyrics



CATCH A FIRE (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

I`ve got a new lease of life My spirits are high I`m on course for the time of my life I`ve had to search to find So I`ve ducked and dived Through the flim flam that`s been washed my way Second guessing is fine But you should take my advice Don`t turn your back on what you know to be true Black lies make your white lies darker Black lies make your white lies darker I want to kiss the sky if I can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands What I`ve found is so good Make you shake in your shoes Leave you buzzing like a cheap TV Take you out of this world Might make your blood curdle Open doors and set your freedom free I want to kiss the sky if I can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire Got a new gift of sight So clear and so bright That leaves me dazzled Like a newborn child I sensed a soar A glide across some great divide That left me speechless in the light of day I want to kiss the sky if can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands I want to kiss the sky if can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire Catch a fire in my burning hands Yeah Catch a fire Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire Yeah Catch a fire "My... my guitar turned to be a little snake there." "Snake, a snake! That`s good, I think. Real good."

INFINITE THRILL (C. McLaughlin)

"Hey sush, in good time." Velvet glove and laundered bills Happiness in poison pills This sleight of hand can tie us all in knots Wiseblood count is low and might just clot Second chances don`t exist Miracles must not be missed Days can smoulder crimson into night Promises that stretch without requite Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and heaven sent Heaven sent It`s an infinite thrill Such an infinite thrill Tantalise with just one taste All emotion is unlaced No more questions seeking high and low Second best to nothing that I know Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and heaven sent Heaven sent Heaven sent Heaven sent Infinite thrill Such an infinite thrill "Yeay. Steve Harper, Steve Harper."

SHANGRI-LA (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

"Whoo." Picture a world of your own deepest wishes I know it`s secrets of delights so delicious You sense the words that will weaken my resistance Lighter than air total magical existence Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling of all Magnetic lips radiant and luminescent Deep summer nights shimmering and phosphorescent Dazzling allure that leads on in one direction Pleasure of love feeding on this sweet confection Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling Sweetest feeling of all Picture a world of your own deepest wishes I know it`s secrets of delights so delicious Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling of all Sweetest feeling Sweetest feeling of all Mesmerise me shangri-la Mesmerise me shangri-la

GENIOUS MOVE (C. McLaughlin)

"Hey hey hey hoo." 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

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 We do We 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 "Hey!"

HEY VENUS (C. McLaughlin)

"You know this one?" 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 Rollers 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 Whooo Whooo 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 Hey Venus Hey Venus Wants us all so bad Hope it drives her Mad "Yo!"

SENSITIZE (C. McLaughlin)

Heard a secret and Saw you smilin` So convincing You`re so beguiling Leaves 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 Sweet and Slow Avalanche Avalanche Avalanche Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow Helter Swelter Sweet and Slow "I suggest, I suggest tonight I suggest tonight that that song becomes the new Irish National Anthem."

TINGLE (R. O`Gormain)

"This one`s for Tamaki." "Okay." "Ain`t that nice?" Sometimes I couldn`t care if you ran out of air oh no You see my star kid groover`s holding tight on the reins of my heart It`s a gas it`s a treat we were made for the trees How I want her like this How I love when she feeds me her Tingle She`s my mudhoney child as we dance on the waves on the street You see my all time mover`s boppin` hard from her head to her feet It`s a gas it`s a treat not a hint of deceit How I want her like this How I love when she feeds me her Tingle So so Why do we always keep looking back Feelin` joy feelin` pain we`re exactly the same I can`t change what always remain oh no no no So why do we always keep looking back Feelin` joy feelin` pain we`re exactly the same I can`t change what always remain oh no no no Subterranean spark won`t you fill up the dark with your Tingle Subterranean spark won`t you fill up the dark with your Tingle Subterranean spark won`t you fill up the dark with your Tingle "Thanks very much."

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

MOUTH CRAZY (S. O`Néill)

"We`re back! But hey, something`s... something`s arrived. We have an extra speckie bastard on stage!" Hinklestein`s inside his cabinet Outside stinks of fish and crèpe suzette Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth Hinklestein`s inside his cabinet Only fierce girls mix with father John It makes your adolescence start up wrong Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth He never used to talk to anyone Hinklestein`s adrift on uisce fhior That perfume sucker baby`s swamped with tears Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth Hinklestein`s adrift on uisce fhior Barracuda bites on wagging tongues It makes your adolescence start up wrong Shut that crazy mouth Shut that crazy mouth It`s just the tool you used on everyone Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Yeah Hinklestein`s around Hinklestein`s around Wow

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 big as satisfaction on their knees You`d 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`d 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 adjucate Educate Organized See my honey in the street It`s desolate but where she likes to meet Uh And 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`d 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

SWEET SHIVER BURN (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

"The hell you`re shoutin` about?" Sunset tears This crummy town will squeeze you Cling to fears The ones you`ve always known Good as Gold And twice as hard to part with Truth be told I just can`t explain Don`t hesitate Nod at fate It`s too late Now you`ve been smothered whole Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Endless roads The final flame will daze you Skyline prayers The one`s you`ve always dreamed Don`t hesitate Smile at fate It`s so right That you`ve been smothered whole Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn Sweet Shiver Burn

ABANDON (R. O`Gormain)

I watched the nightbird fly so low The burning men Their heads aglow Feast or famine Reap or sow Your interpretation Says it all I say Abandon I say Abandon You`ve got no blood In your veins Everything you`ve done You`ve feined I cut my teeth On a bed of wire I sold my soul For my hearts desire I say Abandon I say Abandon Abandon Abandon Ah how I get so scared of my own damn vision I step back Revise my position Yeah I know it`s All my own decision I know I said I know it`s all my own decision I say Abandon I say Abandon Abandon Abandon Aaah Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Accept the demons at posession Accept the demons at posession So high So high high high high High High High High Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon Abandon "Thank you." "It`s been great...too!" "See you soon."

CHEMICRAZY (S. Mack / J. Marchini/ C. McLaughlin / R. O'Gormainn / D.O'Neill)


BLUE TO BLACK (C. McLaughlin)

"This is for John Marchini." "Over here, get over here" "Please..." Mirror fragments that are staring back Livid lips and an eye that`s turning blue to black Cracked Sweaty walls that keep me company And the stink of perfume primes my memory Luxury Takes you in its arms won`t you honey hush Senses drawing skin that crawles and squirms to touch Crushed Whisper words into my mouth and bite Coming up for air and to suffocate delight Spite Mirror fragments that are staring back Livid lips and an eye that`s turning blue to black Cracked With an aftertaste so sweetly sour I embrace the shame as it hugs me cheek by jowl Howl Howl Howl Howl

SCUMSURFIN` (C. McLaughlin)

I`m getting out while it`s not too late for me Seems this triple vision sealed my fate for me Things I hear and what they`re saying about me I really need someone to solve this mystery Losing sleep and missing dreams Hazy notions half forgotten schemes Hopes that end in dust and ash Head is empty I`m talking trash Let me take one more slug of your eyes A muddled message that I`ll have to satisfy Don`t but me no buts take you own advice Keep your logic I`ll hang onto my dice Laugh at bad luck Let it ride Scumsurfin` on a putrid tide Disappear without a splash Head is empty Talking trash Trash Triple vision sealed my fate Things I hear are things I hate Hopes that end in dust and ash Head is empty talkin` trash Laugh at bad luck Let it ride Scumsurfin` on a putrid tide Disappear without a splash Walk on water talkin` Trash
