Track Name: Monument to a Lost Cause
this party's seething, it's a
full-scale tenement cacophony
ten minutes in and i know
the way it's going to pan out from here.

this scene's the usual drill -
so many voices, nothing to say
we move from space to space
but always seem to be standing still.

we check the dos and the don'ts
in your quick-fix style supplement,
make our plans to meet up
and do something substantial.

we talk about this sound and that
and i say, turn me on to something special,
and all the jet-set is here
just like we were this time last year.

it's how you know you've arrived -
when you're coming up on a sinking trip,
the old familiar signs
holding you down as the CD skips.
and through it all we remain
just scattered pieces in the one place
new buzz - it's clever to clash
and anything goes these days.
Track Name: New Play Thing
shadow of a star falls
over static-clad TV set
he's playing coy with you, boy -
your new play thing.

he's hanging on to every word
like a button on a loose thread,
like the silk wire sewing up your head,
coming in on ch.9

putting on the headset, baby...
he signed the message:

(on the hour every hour)
pure reflections from the constant-teens
he signed the message:
(on the hour every hour)
your new play thing

(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

he's heavy metal disco,
the elephant at your window,
he's valium and cristal
(new play thing, stay till tomorrow)
but the lights are closing in now,
you'd better lock away your razor blades,
and leave your money out for christian aid
(new play thing, hold on till tomorrow)

cigs on the bedstead, baby...
he signed the message:

(on the hour every hour)
your connection to the unforeseen
he signed the message:
(on the hour every hour)
your new play thing

(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

shadow of a star falls,
signs the message 'XXX',
he's turned you into glue, boy,
and left you stuck in awe
saying - hold on till tomorrow

but i knew he'd get you all along
i knew he'd get you all along
your new play thing
i knew he'd get you all along...
Track Name: R.I.T.H.
private eyes
looking me up and down
some rogue desire
is chasing us underground
with nowhere to run to
can't get no respite,
you've got me trapped like a rabbit in the headlights.

the climate shifts
across the line of the bedroom door
our eyes align
and we clash like gladiators.
no-one else to become -
i've used up every disguise,
you've got me stunned like a rabbit in the headlights.

(just a rabbit in the headlights)

stuck fast in the cold glare,
this body burning up inside
at the point of re-entry
to the waking life.
Track Name: New Built Fears Love
i know a place where we can
drop out of the dull race,
leave the never-ending gaze
of TV-eyes and radio waves.

escape the fashionistas,
the westering mona lisas,
in dreams of ocean-vistas
far from burning airways.

but don't the days run by your window so fast,
and don't you know, nothing round here ever lasts.

the hand-me-down princesses
wrapped in their cul-de-sac curls
wear oh-so-glamourous furs,
but it's not our minds they're thinking of.

so put on your dark sunglasses -
they'll keep the rain out of your eyes
and should it come as a surprise,
this new built fears love.

but don't the days run by your window so fast,
and don't you know, nothing round here ever lasts.
Track Name: Part-time Jewellery Maker
pack up your bows and bracelets,
go now and leave me in peace.
i'm not the one to help you
to satisfy your needs.
i know your kind - it's ten a penny,
always on the make / never quite off the latch,
making out like you're nobody's baby
well, i'm no fool for that act.

she was a part-time jewellery maker,
just an old-time glory seeker
she was a part-time jewellery maker
and i said i'd no time to waste on me and her.

talking all day and night
about your aspirations,
your favourite stations,
and the artistic light
while the gas-taps all sit back and listen -
you know, i've never seen them act so polite!
say, why don't you take your wired protestations
and sing them out to the street,
cos i'm not the one
i'm not the one
who could give you what you need.

she was a part-time jewellery maker,
just an old-time glory seeker
she was a part-time jewellery maker
and i said i'd no time to waste on me and her.
Track Name: Ring Binder
new york to cologne
cassavetes delon
glasgow school left turn
A1 to london

piccadilly purr
denton TX chrysler
offices to let
stars on epaulettes

ring binder, ring it back to me
echo round the whispering gallery
reel me round the lone amplifier
letter sent, return forever
