Lyrics

The Reflex
05:35
The Reflex
The Reflex
The Reflex

You've gone too far this time
And I'm dancing on the valentine
I tell you somebody's fooling around
With my chances on the danger line
I'll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day
To make my stand
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand

Why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it?
Buy time don't loose it

Why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it?
Buy time don't loose it

The reflex is a lonely child
Who's waiting by the park
The reflex is a door to finding
Treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Must be answered with a question mark

I'm on a ride and I want to get off
But they won't slow down the round-about
I sold the radio and T.V. set
Don't want to be around when this gets out

Why don't you use it?

The reflex is a lonely child
Who's waiting by the park
The reflex is a door to finding
Treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Must be answered with a question mark

Why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it?
Buy time don't loose it

The reflex is a lonely child
Who's waiting by the park
The reflex is a door to finding
Treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Must be answered with a question mark
New Moon on Monday
04:22
Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
With your dance on the eventide
You got me coming up with answers
All of which I deny

I said it again
But could I please rephrase it
Maybe I can catch a ride
I couldn't really put it much plainer
But I'll wait till you decide
Send me your warning siren
As if I could ever hide
Last time La Luna

I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

Breaking away with the beast of both worlds
A smile that you can't disguise
Every minute I keep finding
Clues that you leave behind
Save me from these reminders
As if I'd forget tonight
This time La Luna

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
(Fire dance through the night)
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
(I light my torch and wave it for the)
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
(Fire dance through the night)
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
(I light my torch and wave it for the)
(I'm Looking For) Cracks in the Pavement
03:45
I shed my skin when the party was about to begin
I'm light years away but I'm walking back tonight of all nights
When I should be feeling just right
Don't wanna be in public my head is full of chopstick I don't like it
Something on my mind breaking open doors I've sealed up before
Something on my mind makes me run when I thought I'd run too far

Somebody's shaking my tree maybe that somebody is me
I'm standing in the light but I'm making a break for the shadows on the cinema wall
They should be mine but I'm not that tall
Now I'm saying this in private if I had a car I'd drive it insane

Something on my mind breaking open doors I've sealed up before
Something on my mind makes me run when I thought I've run too far
Something on my mind breaking open doors I've sealed up before
Something on my mind makes me run when I thought I've run too far
I'm looking for cracks in the pavement

Something on my mind breaking open doors I've sealed up before
Something on my mind makes me run when I thought I've run too far
Something on my mind breaking open doors I've sealed up before
Something on my mind makes me run when I thought I've run too far
I Take the Dice
03:23
Midnight I think I'm gonna make it
Feel the magical lash of the rolland the crash in their lives
Headline in tomorrow's papers
Kill that light it's so bright
And you're shining in right in my eyes

Show me your secret and tell me you name
Catch me with your fizzy smile
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognize
When I need you I don't know how
To believe in your advice
Just this once I take the dice

Show me your secret and tell me you name
Catch me with your fizzy smile
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognize
When I need you I don't know how
To believe in your advice
Just this once I take the dice

Midnight so what's the point of faking
For a kiss or whisper you pull out a desperate prize
Hold tight onto daddy's bracelet
Make them pay for their chances
With money they don't think that's nice
Of Crime and Passion
03:57
Why did you let me run
When you knew I'd fall for the gaping hole
Where your heart should be
Liar-couldn't cut me deeper with a knife if you tried
Just take a look (before you run off and hide)
At your victim
Arise

Clouds on you shoulder
Aren't they grazed by the afterglow
How quiet they gather
When the storm is about to blow

No don't look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain't no wind of change
I'm talking of crime and passion's rage

Summer of madness or the undertow
Dragged me up an alley for the blossoming fire
On a stranger's smile
Bride of wire-how disguise so easily cracked
Saw your heart turn spade
This orchid's turned to black

Graze on your shoulder
Like the clouds in the afterglow
How quiet they gather
When the storm is about to blow

No don't look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain't no wind of change
I'm talking of crime and passion's rage

Way down by the shoulder
In the haze of the afterglow
Stranded together
And the storm is about to blow

No don't look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain't no wind of change
I'm talking of crime and passion's rage
Union of the Snake
04:26
Telegram force and ready
I knew this was a big mistake
There's a fine line drawing my senses together
And I think it's about to break

If I listen close I can hear them singers, oh-oh-oh
Voices in your body coming through on the radio

The union of the snake is on the climb
Moving up, it's gonna race, it's gonna break through the borderline

Nightshades on a warning
Give me strength, at least give me a light
Give me anything even sympathy
There's a chance you could be right

If I listen close I can hear them singers, oh-oh-oh
Voices in your body coming through on the radio

The union of the snake is on the climb
It's gonna race, it's gonna break, gonna move up to the borderline

If I listen close I can hear them singers, oh-oh-oh
Voices in your body coming through on the radio

The union of the snake is on the climb
Moving up, it's gonna race, it's gonna break through the borderline
The union of the snake is on the climb
It's gonna race, it's gonna break, gonna move up to the borderline
Shadows on Your Side
04:09
Shackled and raised for a shining crowd
They want you to speak, but the music is louder than all of their roar
With the heat off the planet's core

But the shadows are on your side as soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find you belong to the hands of the night

Promises made with a distant friend
Truth should be known it can only bend to a tune of it's own
Hey, you'll never hear that voice again

Scandal in white on a tangled vine
With everybody saying that your having the time of your life
When your life is on the slide

But the shadows are on your side as soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find you belong to the hands of the night
Shadows are on your side as soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find you belong to the hands of the night

Spinning a compass to choose your way
You can run, you can dive, you can stand and you can soar
Whichever way you can be sure

That the shadows are on your side as soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find you belong to the hands of the night
Shadows are on your side as soon as the lights go down
In the darkest place you can find you belong to the hands of the night

Shadows on your side
The shadows are on your side
Shadows on your side
The shadows are on your side

The Seventh Stranger
05:30
Those words are all remainders
Echoes growing in the heart of twilight
They lay back laughing at naivety's star
Awaken all those whispers
The dusty shadow of a passing favour
I wouldn't say that you were ruthless or right
I couldn't see from so far

Was I chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure, you never answered when I called
And I wiped away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of the stranger

Can't tell the real from reflection
When all these faces look the same to me
In every city such a desolate dream
Some days are strange to number
Some say the seventh sounds a little bit stranger
A year of Sundays seems to have drifted right by
I could have sworn in one evening

And I'm not seized in desperation
No steel reproaches on the table from before
But I still can feel those splinters of ice
I look through the eyes of a stranger

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of the stranger

I must be chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure, you never answered when I called
And I wiped away the water from my face
To look through the eyes of a stranger

For rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
Walking away like a stranger

From rumours in the wake of such a lonely crowd
Trading in my shelter for danger
I'm changing my name just as the sun goes down
In the eyes of the stranger

In the eyes of the stranger
In the eyes of the stranger
