Track Name: Hunting Eyes
Hunting Eyes

The wolves are running
Searching as a pack
You have got to be quick
Are you are ever coming back?
The woodland creatures ---
Of fur, of teeth and hate
Creeping through my garden
Waiting at the ornate gate

They should not be here, scratching at my door
Starving me out--- human and animal form
I’ll take no sleep until the light of dawn
What darkest mischief!

And you’ve got hunting eyes --- haunting, hunting eyes
They can see, oh (good God) they can see deep into to the night
I am fearful of your teeth
I am fearful of your size

The wolves are running
Searching as a pack
Something they remember
Something in the black?
I hear footfall ---
I hear claws on gravel
They’re a long way out
Something worth the travel!

The night is full of song, the night is full of magic
Scratching at the windows, twisting natural logic
At my front door. Will I ever sleep again?
What wicked teeth!

And you’ve got hunting eyes --- haunting, hunting eyes
They can see, oh (good God) they can see deep into to the night
I am fearful of your teeth
I am fearful of your size

Underneath the hunters’ moon, my dear, I’ve seen you change
Silhouetted beneath the sheets --- you’ve joined the beasts!

And you’ve got hunting eyes --- haunting, hunting eyes
They can see, oh (good God) they can see deep into to the night
I am fearful of your teeth
I am fearful of your size
Track Name: Mr. Martin Pincher
Mr. Martin Pincher

The lift it has stopped steadfast at the top
And I think it gave Annie a bit of a shock
‘Cos the building’s on fire and we’ve been here a while
I tried to be strong, tried to cast her a smile but I’ll lose

Mr Martin Pincher
Don’t forget your upper lip is stiff

The dinner gong is heard in the drawing room world
So I’ll wind up my watch and the door I’ll unlock
I’ll travel the hall, greet my wife my little girl
Take my place at the table and pray that the cable won’t fail

Mr Martin Pincher
Don’t forget your upper lip is stiff

Mr Martin Pincher
Don’t forget your upper lip is stiff

I’m beginning to choke in the billow-black smoke
I feel the heat rise, feel my panic exposed
My colleague’s scream stark as my vision goes dark
Shame, the last thing I saw was the head of an axe cutting through

Mr Martin Pincher
Don’t forget your upper lip is stiff
Track Name: A Glimpse Of Lightning
A Glimpse Of Lightning

I caught a cold
I caught a glimpse of lightening
As fire covered the ground ---
There was an awful sound
You think I’m deeply troubled now

I tried so hard to close my eyes to attenuate the memory
But noting else will come to me --- just that brilliant jagged streak

Now I’m in this kitchen
Ghosts are all around me
Some laughing --- others childe me
My fault for believing
All my fault for believing in you

I watched it burn
Saw us turn to ashes
As fire ate at our hearts
Ravenous for the stuff ---
The residue of love

I tried so hard to close my eyes to attenuate the memory
But noting else will come to me --- just that brilliant jagged streak

Now I’m in this kitchen
Ghosts are all around me
Some laughing --- others childe me
My fault for believing
All my fault for believing

I will not be frightened
No I will not be frightened
Of the ghosts or the lightening
I will not repeat the mistakes I made concerning you

I caught a cold
I swear I dreamt of lightening
A long long time ago
Track Name: The Golden Pathway
The Golden Pathway

The golden pathway
A treasury of knowledge is found within
My last will and testament
Is found on the phantom ship

The stolen bacillus --- the hoax.
How Dante’s escaped the chateaux.
A song for St. Celia’s Day --- La Belle Dame San Merci
Oh ye --- oh yeay

The golden pathway
A treasury of knowledge is found within
At war with the Corronades
Being ashore --- O carpe diem!

The stolen bacillus --- the hoax.
How Dante’s escaped the chateaux.
A song for St. Celia’s Day --- La Belle Dame San Merci
Oh ye --- oh yeay

The stolen bacillus --- the hoax.
How Dante’s escaped the chateaux.
A song for St. Celia’s Day --- La Belle Dame San Merci
Oh ye --- oh yeay
Track Name: I Am Cain
I am cain

A nasty, dirty, mad-man monster staring out of a pencil scribble
O --– you wicked child!
I only ever see him in the mirror
And he makes --- he makes me nervous --- it’s in the eyes
O --– you wicked child!

I define myself:-
Young.
Male.
In his twenties.
Prime category for schizophrenic development.

Keep your friends close
Your friends close
All enemies closer ---
A gift of poisoned wine for the House of Caesar

I am fearless
I am Cain

Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- oh, these are such noble goals!

A nasty, dirty, mad-man monster staring out of a pencil scribble
O --– you wicked swine!
I only ever see him in the mirror
And he makes --- he makes me nervous --- it’s in the eyes
O --– you wicked swine!

A caged bird is still a bird
A caged bird is still a bird --- maybe it will sing if you threaten to clip its wings
A caged bird is still a bird
A caged bird is still a bird --- maybe it will sing if you threaten to clip its wings

Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- these are such noble goals
Cancer / contagion / the common cold --- oh, these are such noble goals!
These are such noble goals
These are such noble goals

Well I am fearless
I am Cain
