Hong Kong Garden Lyrics
Harmful elements in the air
symbols clashing everywhere
Reaps the fields of rice and reeds
while the population feeds
Junk floats on polluted water
an old custom to sell your daughter
Would you like number 23?
Leave your yens on the counter please
Hong Kong Garden

Tourists swarm to see your face
Confuscius has a puzzling grace
Disoriented you enter in
unleashing scent of wild jasmine

Slanted eyes meet a new sunrise
a race of bodies small in size
Chicken Chow Mein and Chop Suey
Hong Kong Garden takeaway

Mirage Lyrics
I'm just a vision on your TV screen
Just something conjured from a dream
Seen thro' your x-ray eyes,
A see-thro' scene

The image is no images
It's not what it seems.

My limbs are like palm trees
Swaying in no breeze
My body's an oasis
To drink from as you please
I'm not seeing what I'm meant to believe in
Your non excuse for human being.

It's not plain to see
That I'm playing with me
A photo-fit of loose ends, framed in 3-D
Seen thro' your x-ray eyes,
A see-thro' scene

The image is no images
It's not what it seems

The Staircase (Mystery) Lyrics
Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down

Slide down the banister
Take the escalator
Slide down the banister
Or try the elevator

I was standing on the landing
Now I'm standing in the hall
Looking up

Won't someone assist me
Solve this mystery
Somebody assist me
Arrange the symmetry

Muffled footsteps on the carpet
Spiral steps start spinning
Around me

Which floor which ceiling
You're off balance
Which floor which ceiling
It's all upside down

Stare case lying face up
Stare cat on a mat
Looking down...

Playground Twist Lyrics
Hanging....
Hanging from your daisy chains
Swinging in the trees
Running from your enemies
And falling on your knees
On your knees
Get down on your knees

Throw the dice
You three blind mice
Did you ever see
Such a thing in your life
You swallow the trail
But still arrive
Inside your entrails

Hanging....
Hanging out at party games
Dancing in the shadows
Up and down on the see-saw
Balancing the scales
You're drunk
Yet you're balancing the scales

Someone to blame
Someone to shame
Someone who you can claim
Go back the to pass the parcel
And follow the leader

Hanging....
Hanging from your climbing frames
Swinging in the gallows
Laughing with your buddies
But you can drown when you're shallow
You can drown....

Love In A Void Lyrics
Too many fools blocking my motion
Clouding my eyes must be the potion
Spots on my eyes must be the lotion

Love in a void it's so numb
Avoid in love it's so dumb
Love in a void

Too many bigots for my liking
Too many critics too few writing
Rabid dogs that aren't biting

Love in a void it's so numb
Avoid in love it's so dumb
Love in a void

Jaded reputation on which you're staking
Lots of money for the making
For all the stars they're just faking

Love in a void it's so numb
Avoid in love it's so dumb
Love in a void

Happy House Lyrics
This is the happy house-we're happy here in the happy house oh it's such fun
We've come to play in the happy house
and waste a day in the happy house-it never rains

We've come to scream in the happy house We're in a dream in the happy house
We're all quite sane

This is the happy house-we're happy here There's room for you if you say "I do"
but don't say no or you'll have to go
we've done no wrong with our blinkers on It's safe and calm if you sing along

This is the happy house-we're happy here in the happy house. To forget ourselves-and pretend all's well There is no hell.

Christine Lyrics
She tries not to shatter, kaleidoscope style Personality changes behind her red smile. Every new problem brings a stranger inside Helplessly forcing one more new disguise

Christine-the strawberry girl
Christine-banana split lady

Singing sweet savages lost in our world. This big-eyed girl sees her faces unfurl Now she's in purple
Now she's the turtle
Disintegrating

Christine-the strawberry girl
Christine-banana split lady

22 faces...disintegrating.

Israel Lyrics
Little orphans in the snow
With nowhere to call a home
Start their singing
Waiting through the summertime
To thaw your hearts in wintertime
That's why they're singing...
Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
The sweet taste in your mouth--turned bitter in its glass
Israel...in Israel
Israel...in Israel
Shattered fragments of the past
Meet in veins on the stained glass
Like the lifeline in your palm
Red and green reflects the scene
Of a long forgotten dream
There were princes and there were kings
Now hidden in disguise--cheap wrappings of lies
Keep your heart alive with a song from inside
Even though we're all alone
We are never on our own when we're singing
There's a man who's looking in
And he smiles a toothless grin
Because he's singing...
See some people shine with glee
But their song is jealousy
Their hate is clanging--maddening
In Israel...will they sing Happy Noel
Israel...in Israel
Israel...in Israel
In Israel will they sing Happy Noel

Arabian Nights Lyrics
The jewel, the prize
looking into your eyes
Cool pools drown your mind
What else will you find

I hear a rumour-it was just a rumour
I heard a rumour-what have you done to her

Myriad lights-they said I'd be impressed Arabian Knights-at your primitive best

A tourist oasis-reflects in seedy sunshades a monstrous oil tanker
it's wound bleeding in seas

I heard a rumour-what have you done to her I heard a rumour-what have you done to her

Veiled behind screens
kept as your baby machine
Whilst you conquer more orifices
Of boys, goats and things
Ripped out sheeps eyes-no forks or knives

Myriad lights-they said I'd be impressed Arabian Knights-at your primitive best
