1. Psychological

You've got a problem with the reason why
an isometric haircut and a painted eye
it's psychological

Is it a cry for help or call to arms
frustration, false alarms
it's psychological

(All in mind)

There's something in the attic can it smell so bad
an undertaker in a bowler hat
psychological

What's that spilt on the kitchen floor?
Who's that knocking on the cellar door
it's psychological

Or is it only your imagination
driving me crazy, crazy
baby, baby, please
it's psychological

(All in mind)

I thought I heard a baby cry I thought I heard a train(?)
down in the cemetery
cellophane

2.The Sodom And Gomorrah Show

(Sun, sex, sing
divine intervention
death and distruction
ladies and gentlemen
welcome
to the sodom and gomorrah show)

I lived a quiet life
a stranger to champagne
I never dared to venture out
to ?

I heard about the way of life
took it with a pinch of salt
the freedom and the time to play
A life so easy
it intrigued me
when you called to say

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah show
It's got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and distruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah show is
a once in a lifetime production

I think it's true to say
my life was changed that night
in the liberated atmosphere
all around me
someone found me
whispered in my ear

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah show
It's got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and distruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah show is
a once in a lifetime production

Then we went on after hours
there was a place down below
it was then I realised
the meaning of the show

You've got to love to learn to live
where angels fear to tread
I did it and I don't regret the day
even now I think of how you
turned to me to say

(Sun, sex, sin, death and distruction) Sodom and Gomorrah

Are you gonna go
to the Sodom and Gomorrah show
It's got everything you need for your
complete entertainment
and instruction
Sun, sex, sin divine intervention
death and distruction
the Sodom and Gomorrah show is
a once in a lifetime production

3. I made my excuses and left

(I'm all alone again, I'm all alone)

I walked into the room
imagine my surprise
you were sitting close to him
staring in each other's eyes

Each of you looked up
but noone said a word
I felt I should apologise
for what I hadn't heard

A silence filled the room
awkward as an elephant
in the crowded court of your love
I was now a supplicant

And clumsy as I felt
at stumbling on this theft
to save further embarassment
I made my excuses and left

So long ago
I felt like such a fool for crying
all that I know
is when you feel inside you're dying
it all begins again defying
your excuses

4. Minimal

(Minimal)
M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)
M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)

White on white
Black so black
Subliminal
Void is clean
a cell, but not for a criminal

Light and shade
time and space

M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)
M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)

Draw a line
more is less
is minimal
Form of life
decide something less decisional

Light and shade
time and space

M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)
M-I-N-I-M-A-L Minimal (Minimal) Minimal (Minimal)

An empty box
an open space
a single thought
leaves a trace

An empty box

5. Numb

Don't wanna hear the news
what's going on
what's coming through
I don't wanna know, don't wanna know

Just wanna hide away
make my escape
just walk a while
to leave me alone

Feels like I feel too much
I've seen too much
for a little while
I want to forget

I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door

I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be, wanna be numb

Can't find no space to breathe
walls closing in
right on me now
well that's how it feels, that's how it feels

Too much light
there's too much sound
wanna turn it off
wanna shut it out
I need some relief

Think that I think too much
I've seen too much
there's just too much thought in my head

I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door

I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be, wanna be numb

Take ?
from all the madness
need to escape
escape from the pain

I'm on the edge
about to lose my mind
for a little while
for a little while

I wanna be numb

I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing

I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door

I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be, wanna be numb

6. Luna Park

Shadow's on the sun
another night's begun
it's always dark in Luna Park

Wind accross the moon
electric storms and soon
a flying spark in Luna Park

And when we're getting high we're happy
somebody's eating fire we're happy
the big wheel in the sky will make you scream

Come and join the line
the ghost train leaves on time
it's always dark in Luna Park

On the shooting range
the plastic prizes never changes
so make your mark in Luna Park

And when we're getting high we're happy
somebody's eating fire we're happy
the big wheel in the sky will make you scream

Thunder I wonder
a storm will come one day
to blow us all away
like dust on the moon
in Luna Park it can't be dark too soon

Every night we go
to the latest horror show
and hear the screams in Luna dreams

Fortune teller's news?
on palms that bode bad news
the future's dark in Luna Park

And when we're feeling scared we're happy
With circuses and bread we’re happy
The whirling fan machines are all we need

Thunder I wonder
a storm will come one day
to blow us all away
like dust on the moon
in Luna Park it can't be dark too soon

7. I'm With Stupid

(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid

See you on the TV
Call you every day
Fly across the ocean
Just to let you get your way

No-one understands me
Where I’m coming from
Why would I be with someone
Who’s obviously so dumb?

Love comes (love comes)
Love grows (love grows)
Everytime you rise to meet me
Take my hand to greet me
Love comes (love comes)
Love grows (love grows)
And power can give a man
Much more than anybody knows

(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid

Before we ever met
I thought like everybody did
You were just a moron
A billion dollar kid

You flew up all the way
Like a hawk chasing a dove
I never thought that I would be
A sacrifice in love

It comes (it comes)
It grows (it grows)
And now we’re tied together
Everybody knows

(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid

Is stupid really stupid?
Or a different kind of smart?
Do we really have a relationship
So special, in your heart?

(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid

I have to ask myself
Like any lover might
Have you made a fool of me?
Are you not Mr. Right?
You grin
I pose
It’s not about sincerity
Everybody knows

(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid
(oh oh) I’m with stupid

Is stupid really stupid?
Or are you really smart?
That’s how you stole my heart
I’m with stupid

8. Casanova in hell

The girl's perfection
inspires affection
it's queer that here
he can't can his spell
in her direction
Somewhere near
one senses fear
Casanova In Hell

The girl is naked
the boy is naked
He hides inside
the secret shame
?
through a velvet drape
and dream of rape
Casanova in Hell

Her sharp suggestion
He couldn't get an erection
came as a shock
he finds himself
a laughing stock
He's ageing fate
to contemplate
Casanova in Hell

Back in ?
his revenge is historic
what he will write
will we call the bite
of his wit and legendary
appetite
the civil right
Casanova is well

For Casanova has the last laugh
creates the myth of vindication
of the sexual vacation
makes

his erection
will live in history

9. Twentieth century

Oh we learned a lesson from the twentieth century
I dont think we should just dismiss
after a hundred years of inhumanity
the lesson that I learned was this

Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

? to the revolution
?when the statues ?
Everyone came to destroy what was wicked
but they killed all that was good as well

Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

Stay with me
this century
together we're better

Oh we learned a lesson from the twentieth century
and maybe somewhat hit or miss
if you've certainty 'bout the way it's so meant to be
the lesson that you need is this


Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

Sometimes the solution, is worse than the problem
let's stay together

10. Indefinite Leave To Remain

I was lost for so long
feels like it's taken half my life
to find where I belong
Seeing you here
you're my nation
this is my application
give me hope
keep my sane
give me
indefinite leave to remain

All the ? that I saw
I went far, far away
and still wanted you more
it may sound superficial
but can we make it official
give me hope
keep me sane
give me
indefinite leave to remain

Tell me where I stand
what do you envision
one way or another
give me your decision now

Is it time to proceed
will you give me a chance
and this status I need
Seeing you here
you're my nation
this is my application
give me hope
keep me sane
give me
indefinite leave to remain

Give me indefinite leave
to remain

11. Integral

If you've done nothing wrong
you've got nothing to fear
If you've something to hide
you shouldn't even be here

Long live us
the persuaded we
integral
collectively
to the whole project
it's brand new
conceived solely
to protect you

One world
One reason
Unchanging
One season

If you've done nothing wrong
you've got nothing to fear
If you've something to hide
you shouldn't even be here

You've had your chance
now we've got the mandate
If you've changed your mind
I'm afraid it's too late

We're concerned
you're a threat
You're not integral
to the project

Sterile
Immaculate
Rational
Perfect

Everyone has
their own number
in the system that
we operate under
We're moving to
a situation
where your lives exist as
information

One world
One life
One chance
One reason

All under
one sky
unchanging
one season

If you've done nothing wrong
you've got nothing to fear
If you've something to hide
you shouldn't even be here

You've had your chance
now we've got the mandate
If you've changed your mind
I'm afraid it's too late

We're concerned
you're a threat
You're not integral
to the project

One world
One life
One chance
One reason

All under
one sky
unchanging
one season

If you've done nothing wrong
you've got nothing to fear
If you've something to hide
you shouldn't even be here

You've had your chance
now we've got the mandate
If you've changed your mind
I'm afraid it's too late

We're concerned
you're a threat

If you've done nothing wrong
you've got nothing to fear
If you've something to hide
you shouldn't even be here

We're concerned
you're a threat
You're not integral
to the project

Sterile
Immaculate
Rational
Perfect
