The Reflex


You’ve gone too far this time but 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 ohh
High time is no time for deciding if I should find a helping hand ohh

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 he’s waiting by the park
The Reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
and watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does leaves you 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 Renoir and the T.V. set
Don’t want to be around when this gets out

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 he’s waiting in the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
and watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does leaves you answered with a question mark

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 he’s waiting by the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
and watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does leaves you answered with a question mark

The reflex, what a game, he’s hiding all the cards
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
and watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does leaves you answered with a question mark

New Moon On Monday

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
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 firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

Breaking away with the best 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

I light my torch and wave it for the

New moon on Monday
And a firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a firedance 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 firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
New moon on Monday
And a firedance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

Cracks In The Pavement

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 want to be in public
My head is full of chopstick
I don’t like it

Something on my mind
breaking open doors I had sealed up before
Something on my mind
makes me run when I thought I’d run too far

Somebody 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 had sealed up before
Something on my mind
makes me run when I thought I’d run too far
Something on my mind
breaking open doors I had sealed up before
Something on my mind
makes me run when I thought I’d run too far

I’m looking for cracks in the pavement

Something on my mind
breaking open doors I had sealed up before
Something on my mind
makes me run when I thought I’d run too far
Something on my mind
breaking open doors I had sealed up before
Something on my mind
makes me run when I thought I’d run too far

I Take The Dice

Midnight I think I’m gonna make it
Feel the magical lash of the roll and the crash in their lives

Headline in tomorrow’s papers
Kill that light it’s so bright
And you’re shining it right in my eyes

Show me your secret and tell me your name
catch me with your fizzy smile
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognise
Don’t ask me now
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 a 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

Show me your secret and tell me your name
catch me with your fizzy smile
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognise
Don’t ask me now
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 your name
catch me with your fizzy smile (I take the dice)
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognise (I take the dice)
Show me your secret and tell me your name
catch me with your fizzy smile (I take the dice)
Try to remember again and again
What it is that I recognise (I take the dice)

Of Crime And Passion

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 –
Oh, oh, now don’t look away,
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain’t no wind of change
I’m talking of crime and passions rage.

Summer of madness the undertow, dragged me up an alley –
For the blossoming fire on a strangers smile.
Bride of wires – how disguise so easily cracked –

Saw your heart turn spade, this orchids turned to black..

Graze on your shoulder
Like the clouds in the afterglow
How quiet they gather –
When the storm is about to blow –
Oh, oh, now don’t look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain’t no wind of change
I’m talking of crime and passions rage

Way down by the shoulder
In the haze of the afterglow
Stranded together –
And the storm’s about to blow –
Oh, oh, now don’t look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain’t no wind of change
I’m talking of crime and passions..

Oh, oh now don’t look away
Caught in the crossfire
And it ain’t no wind of change
I’m talking of crime and passion..

Don’t look away
Caught in the crossfire
And if ain’t no wind of change
I’m talking of crime and passion…

Union Of The Snake  

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
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
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
Moving up it’s gonna race, it’s gonna break
through the borderline

If I listen close I can hear them singers
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
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

Shackeled 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
Scandel 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 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
Shadows on your side
The shadows are on your side
Shadows on your side

The Seventh Stranger

Those words are all remainders Echoes growing in the heart of twilight
They lay back laughing at naivety’s star
Awaken all those whispers
in 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 a 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 a stranger

I must be chasing after rainbows
One thing for sure you never answer when I call
and I wipe away the water from my face
to look through the eyes of a stranger
for rumour 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 a stranger
In the eyes of a stranger
In the eyes of a stranger
