Track Name: Divide & Rule/Foreign Gestures
FOREIGN GESTURES

Live life 'til the end,
Keep up with your friends
Head down, don't be scared
Science will take you there

Please forget to fight your loved ones
Please remember your compassion

They move in foreign gestures
They experiment on their own kind
They move in foreign gestures
They're from another time

We are the smart phone generation
Lonely in social isolation
Set out to ruin conversation
Follow the vision of the zombie nation

Raised in a test tube to start a riot
Make the matches to start a fire

They move in foreign gestures
Track Name: Venus de Milo
VENUS DE MILO

Some like to keep moving, some like to stop
Some like to drag themselves all the way to the top
Some let their insecurities tell them who to love
Don't let delusion dictate like a voice from above

She was my Venus de Milo
But she had no arms to catch me when I fell

You who worship false idols know that you can never win!
Unrequited adulation will eat you from within

She was my Venus de Milo
But her phantom limbs could not hold on to my heart
I loved my Venus de Milo
But I lost my love as I slipped right through those arms

I will always love you, my Venus de Milo
Track Name: Sensations
SENSATIONS

I won't catch this light again
Strange thoughts echo round my brain
She won't follow every course
I can't contain this anymore

She can follow everything I say with sensations, sensations
She can shatter all my memories with sensation, sensations

There's some comfort on the phone
We won't ever be alone
Screen lights console you when you're down
You don't have to be around

She can follow everything I say with sensations, sensations
She's the shadow of my melodies in sensations, sensations
There is a place where I can be with her in sensations, sensations
I give her everything when I transfer my sensations, sensations

See her, feel her
Track Name: Waves
WAVES

Here come the waves, crashing down
Crashing on me, waves of despair

I was happy in the haze of my oblivion
Sweet thoughts of opportune emotions
Like a school boy waiting for September
On the verge of a breakthrough

Then came the waves, crashing down
Crashing on me, waves of despair

Single file, all my problems are approaching
Am I the puppet or the master?
Hold tight while I sink into oblivion
Am i the prophet of my own disaster?

Dive into the waves, ride the waves
Get a grip on the waves, ride the waves
Track Name: Atom of Justice
ATOM OF JUSTICE

I saw her face in a crowd,
I stopped dead, we shook hands
I wore my heart on her sleeve
But tough luck, we lost touch

When someone comes into your life
That you're with, that you want
You'd better hope that time is right
Cos sometimes

We need an ounce of affection,
A drop of emotion
We need a fragment of friendship
We need a hint of compassion,
A slice of devotion
We need an atom of justice

If you don't look at a tree when it falls, is it free?
If you don't stick when she calls, when you twist, you bust
There are no rules to flaunt or fail, sometimes....

Who's gonna drop the bomb?
Who's gonna find my heart?
Who's got a heavy load?
Who's gonna time it right?

Summer's gone, fragments in isolation
Memories, relapses, synapses
Wear the badge, carry the torch
Be free
Track Name: February 14th
FEB 14TH

Awake, and wait for me early
Sleep and wait for the sound
I lie alone in the bedroom
A bleep, to say you're coming around

Won't you sneak into the bedroom on Feb 14th?
Won't you show me how a good time can make me feel happy?
You say that love is blind on Feb 14th
I'm not sure that a good time is gonna make me feel happy

How have we stayed in the same room?
We could never be more apart
We crawl into our own world
And fall asleep alone in the dark

FEB 14TH is frozen in my mind
FEB 14th is just a waste of time
Track Name: The Great British Coup
Remember the day of 'The Great British Coup'?
You were asleep when it happened to you
Aggression presided, divided and ruled
Contrarians derided, branded 'a fool'

We traded in arms and designed all our foes
Payrolled the schemes that provided our woes
As we victimise scapegoats, legitimise crooks
Corroded our culture and burned all the history books

Remember the day of 'The Great British Coup'?
Remember the day when it happened to you?
Election results were our terror alarms
We closed all the borders to keep us from harm

See human rights disappear in a day
The false opposition is fading away
As controlled social media feeds the mainstream
This culture of chaos will fuel national socialist dreams

We won't be lost, we won't be scared
Make no mistake, they put you there
When will it end? Where do we start?
Wear no more scars...
Track Name: Moonrise (The Day The Power Died)
MOONRISE (THE DAY THE POWER DIED)

The terror twilight, the sun revolted
The riff pulsated, the diamond rusted
Awake at moonrise, the moon will rise over you

We sucked in sunlight, our strenght diluted
The sparkled synapse, the dream vibrated
Awake at moonrise, the moon will rise over you

A crash to awake you, another crash to take you down
Tesla and Edison meet, the day the power died

The breath vibrated, a Tesla moment
The line corrupted a broken slumber
Awake at moonrise, the moon will rise over you

A crash to awake you, another crash to take you down
Tesla and Edison meet, the day the power died
Awoken with a bang, the full moon shining on our face
Consciousness created with naked electricity
Track Name: (Construct Your) Sunrise
(CONSTRUCT YOUR) SUNRISE

In your seventh heaven, when will you endeavour
To stretch those ideas further, overcome disaster
Kill your malevolent master, make those friendships better
Heal those lesions faster, help evolution conquer

Construct your sunrise

When can we get started, countermand the market?
Make our illusions sharper, reflect those moonbeams darker?
Pull on tightrope harder, grow our ambitions larger?
Make our concepts smarter, pool our resources farther?

Construct your sunrise

Distance makes lonely adversaries, of us all...
