Lyrics by Colin Newman 1988
A Matter of Time (J.P. Mercier/ J.P.Mercier) Those we leave behind Will fight to find a cure For the chains that bind But will fail for sure So let's wave our hands We are too poor to be late, For future plans Or a golden age It's just a matter of time… It's just a matter of time Before you drop that poison pen You don't know where and when But it's just a matter of time It's never been if but when You're on the loosing end It's just a matter of time Now, it's a crowded train And it never missed a turn Speeding through the plains Eager to come to term
Leave On All The Lights (J.P. Mercier/ J.P.Mercier) Life is a wasted life Under a dying sun A red threatening sky Run, cause it's over and done Love is cancer I warn you, you can't pull it, you can't cut it, you can't rip it, Or just tear it out of there Don't cry You're wasting your time Join and slip in the lie And tonight We will leave on all the lights Comply There's nowhere to hide But inside of the lie And until we die We will leave on all the lights Strobing frame by frame To a counterfeit pulse Under assumed names Toward miserable results
Lyrics by Colin Newman 1988
