Track Name: Don't Look 'Til It's Gone
don't look 'til it's gone

call it a quirk of human nature...
it's just the way some guys behave
maybe we're all created equal
but oh, that doesn't mean the same...

so look away my fragile pretty, pretty...
i'll draw the curtains on your cage

just think of lilac fields, of daffodils,
of ferris wheels that roll on forever...
oh whatever... don't look 'til it's gone

animals, they're animals...
well if i had a gun i'd... i'd...
nevermind
it's better just to turn the dial
we'll wile away the hours with cartoons
and maybe laugh the way we used to

now... just a smile
my fragile pretty, pretty...
don't you know i'd die for you
but don't look 'til i'm gone

Track Name: Eject!
eject!

no more strolls
no more star trips
nothing's left but space

she took the chairs
she took the carpets
packed them in her case

took the camel train to to zero world
where boys and girls are coded
by the colours of their auras
and the windows in their eyes

and she faxed me her goodbye!
she typed it then she faxed it
and she didn't leave her number

Track Name: Frantic Upstream
frantic upstream

your mind
your body and soul
i want to make it mine
i want to have it all

ticca ticca tee
body speak to me
wanna glide upstream
feel the heat begin

aspiralatagee
fire breathe in me
start vibrating
on your nature's fringe

ticca ticca tee
make me feel so free
wrap around your coil
like a serpentine

suspirafatamin
on a tempo swing
glowing sliver
on your nature's fringe

- written by Yorgos DK -
Track Name: The Slice Of Life
the slice of life

take a cut of my life
and a cut of my soul
and a cut of my...
what am i fighting for?

just a cut of your flesh
and a ride in your Rolls
and fall in my, roll in my
big black hole

- written by Edward Ka-Spel -
Track Name: Come To
come to

if these machines of loving grace
could ever dare to show their face
the warmth and gentleness of steel
that nurtures you in endless dream

you lie emotionless, asleep
chaotic beauty i must keep
i lie beside your waning soul
the power of life i want to hold

and if you (when you) come to
come to me

nurse you back from sickness
nurse you back to life
curse you for this silence
left to make this choice

nurse you to the heavens
nurse you to my heart
curse you though i'm strengthened
frightened by the noise

drip - drop - dripping
and the blood keeps dripping
and the plasma's seeping
and the heart keeps beeping (inside)

tick - tock - ticking
between death and living
in an act of love
there's no faith, no healing

so i'll pull the plug
from the saviour
from the drug
let everything go dark
