NATURE OF INVITING

The surrender to the power makes me born again
The fixation of every sign, I cannot explain
I worship intoxicated at your open play
The appetite that you find, that you throw away
Is a vice of gold and dreams you try to escape from
But you surrender to the power
To the only way

I love you
I hate you
That’s the nature of inviting

To your recklessness and pleasure I purely commit
Because everything that you are is everything there is
It’s a vice of gold and dreams you try to escape from
But you surrender to the power
To the only way

I love you
I hate you
That’s the nature of inviting

KINGDOM OF WELCOME ADDICTION

Do you remember your coming down?
Forced to take sides
Your taunted charm and your broken smile
Touched me unexpectedly

So long, so long you’ve waited in line
Desire is a gift in life
So long, so long you’ve left and arrived
It’s time for you to stay a while

If you chose life, you know what to fear is like
If you welcome addiction, this is your kingdom

Your fight for power, for memories
Answers and signs
Will bring you through the dark to light
Clear and redefine

Too long, too long ungracefully
Commercially sucking life
Too long, too long you’ve wasted and bribed
It’s time for you to recognise

If you chose life, you know what to fear is like
If you welcome addiction, this is your kingdom

TEAR GARDEN

I saw bright open common sense
I do evil things and evil things return
And I’m praying now
Praying for me
You can’t hide, I remove from you
Every tiny strength in everything you do
And I’ll kick you down
I’ll break you with a tender touch

And then the tears cried in the tear garden
Will be for life

In the West they have made a plague
We have built the ship that sailed it to our veins
And God forbid, anything should break that chain
At our root we’re connected through
A biology, a universal cruelty
Send me home
Return me to a lonely womb

And then the tears cried in the tear garden
Will be for life

MY SECRET FRIEND

You have loved
You were not alone
You have braved the weather
When the storm cut you to the bone
There was always shelter

My secret friend
I’ll take you to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

In your skin
To die a little death
This time there’s no code word
When every day frays in hollow ends
Dream sweet love submersive

My secret friend
Oh take me to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

Break my deepest promise

I will break your promise

AN I FOR AN I

We owe it to the willing souls
To the white lie
The double bluff and fever
An I for an I
We owe it to the TV
To the motherland smile
Apocalypse and rapture signing in
An I for an I

If you’re not with us you’re against
An I for an I

We owe it to disaster
To the black fire
The anger and enclosure of desire
An I for an I
We owe it to the sex toys
To the icons of our time
Humility and touch is in decline
An I for an I

If you’re not with us you’re against
An I for an I

I AM TERRIFIED

You look good in leather
In bars
Breaking things, breaking hearts
You look good in pleasure
In hotels
Loneliness is the key to break that spell

I am terrified, I think too much
I get emotional when I drink too much
I buy every cry, because I don’t trust
I am terrified

In your blood, the fetish
The prize
Of a million teasing moments blind
Will release you from the circus
The railway
But the gravity between us will keep us safe

I am terrified, I think too much
I get emotional when I drink too much
I buy every cry, because I don’t trust
I am terrified

THINK OF ENGLAND

In the grip of a winter came love and greed
Insane with faith I took the driving front seat
In the low light comfort of Berlin streets
A calm from emptiness duetted with my body heat

And I was alone at the frontline
The message I was taught was a triumph and the joy of a lifetime

I just can’t think of England
Can’t see the picture
I’m still running from the fire

In the twilight hours of nervous rest
I bought the peace before believing the threat
In a foreign field I cut all regrets
But the poison stories just repeat themselves in a fucked up mess

And I was alone for the first time
The message I was taught was a triumph and the joy of a lifetime

I just can’t think of England
Can’t see the picture
I’m still running from the fire

THE STUPID, THE PROUD

God is dead
We get to sleep tonight
Walk with me
Into the truth, out of your lies

Man equals woman
I’m just the messenger
Don’t shoot me down
The armies of faithful
The killers of reason
The grief of the crowd

The stupid, the proud
They blow our houses down

Excel yourself
Do it to stay alive
Serve your duty
You must demand, they must abide

Queer is the universe
Habit and liberty, destructive in time
Hunt down your future
Because everything you know
Is not enough to survive

The stupid, the proud
They blow our houses down

You Can Be Happy

You walked into the world
As a super human boy and girl
In the blinking of your eyes
I was born and sold by your manifesto

It’s a cruel world for small things
But with lies and luxuries
In the in-between
You can be happy

You put me in a cage
In the daily maze of flesh and rage
But I will follow every truth
I won’t let you go
I want every tomorrow

And now I am afraid
You will blossom soon and grow and change
There is so much I can’t take
But I will understand
I will open my hand

You can be happy

There’s an open window
And I can go through
To the life of others
There’s nothing I can’t do

THE GREAT SHIPWRECK OF LIFE

Play with me
You can make the love, I’ll make the money
Stay with me
Shut out the world, live underneath the city
Release cold gender bombs on colonial closet middle England
Stay with me
I’ll be Peter Pan and you just be pretty

To the brave and the petrified
We all fall down
To the slave and the civilised
We all fall down
to the lovers we left behind
The bad days, the goodnights
In the great shipwreck of life
We all fall down

Born we are
Between the hard black rock and the code of the immortal
Torn from cars
From the flames of the brave and the bosom we can’t return to
We light up the bars of the world with the decadent essence of innocence
Free but sharp
We can be the satellite guiding through the dark

To the brave and the petrified
We all fall down
To the slave and the civilised
We all fall down
to the lovers we left behind
The bad days, the goodnights
In the great shipwreck of life
We all fall down

We can make you understand

Running

You sing for me my friend
Brave and confident
And there is comfort between your breaths
A naive sense to help

But when the days beneath me
Scream into my present
I must always run the race on my own

Your warmth is in my bed
Your voice above the stairs
And when the touching becomes regret
Becomes my mercy chair

Even when the sun is burning
Saving graces
I must always run the race on my own

Oh the sinking and descent
Of every sailing word
And the destruction of all convention
And all corrupted thought
Dig their nails into my optimistic shell
I must always run the race on my own
