Enola Gay

Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
Aha words can’t describe the feeling and the way you lied

These games you play, they’re gonna end it more than tears someday
Aha Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away

Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way
Aha Enola Gay, it shouldn’t fade in our dreams away

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away

2nd Thought

And all the order in our lives
Left some time ago
Along the way
We are the ones who never cry
Like we don’t care
Today

Me at home and you out there
And on your way
It’s gone so far and now it seems
It’s only me
Who cares

I know it helps the times you asked
Though never gained
A little hope to set you free
Less restrained

And though the order in our lives
Left some time ago
We are the ones who never cry
Or so we’re told

It’s gone so far and now it seems
It’s only me
Me at home and you out there
along the way

Me at home and you out there
along the way

Me at home and you out there
along the way

VCL XI

According to Andy McCluskey, there are NO LYRICS to this song, he purposely sang in a mumbled voice because he c0uld not come up with any lyrics that would work for the track.
The band laid the track first, liked it, but Andy couldn’t put words to it, so he just mumbled a bunch of stuff that sounded good and they kept it on the track!!!

Motion And Heart

Everything is as it should be
From motion and heart to the scenery
From make do and mend to the new Paris trend
You said that you learnt but it happens again
What’s a heart that refuses to be
Fortunes gained lost on the street
I couldn’t believe this would happen again
The things you said and I called you my friend
Each time we tried we failed as before
From laissez faire to the knock on the door

But everything is as it should be
When you give your heart to me
From mo mo mo mo motion and heart
to heart heart heart heart heart and move
from mo mo mo mo motion and heart
to heart heart heart heart heart and move

Statues

The way you moved
I can’t explain
The mood subsides
And grows again
I’ve lived alone
I’ve held a hand
I’ve tried to care
And understand

What is faith
And when belief
And who knows how
These things deceive
I never said
And though I tried
If I could leave
And sleep tonight

I can’t imagine
How this ever came to be
I can’t imagine
How this ever came to be

The Misunderstanding

Well we know where the true one lies
And you can’t say it’s our imagination
Just because we cannot find the proof
We’ve shared this thought for some considerable time
It’s increasingly unlike the rest
For as we get older we’ve become less aware
Security lies at the heart of our lives
Attaching ourselves to ourselves
We’re extinguished but we’re still alive

Misunderstood but our intention is good
We were not questioned on our replies
It does you no good
Though you think that it should
And it would given half a chance
If there’s compassion in your hearts
Now that you’ve seen enough
We’ve given of our best
For God’s sake you know
Please please please please please please please Please can we go home
Is this the time or place to say goodbye
Regardless I’ll find my final cue
We’ll sneak out the back door and close it

The More I See You

the more I see you
the more I want you
somehow this feeling
just grows and grows
with every sigh I become
more mad about you
more lost without you
and so it goes
can you imagine
how much I love you
the more I see you
as years go by
I know the only one for me
can only be you
my arms won’t free you
and my heart won’t try

each time I look at you
is like the first time
each time you’re near me
the thrill is new
and there is not a single thing I wouldn’t do for
the rare delight of the sight of you
and there is not one single thing
I wouldn’t do for
the rare delight of the sight of you
and the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
and the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
the more I see you
everyday

Promise

A change of mind has moved around
Takes me back to when we met
Forever moved a promise kept
This all implies I don’t believe how this would be for
To be with you
Watching your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
Away go away
To be by your side
I travel all night
Away go away

Concept conceived to let me down
And when you leave I can never make my mind up
We’re on the move removed too far
Your way of life
It’s only me I’m not deceived at all
To be with you
Watching your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
Away go away
To be by your side
I travel all night
Away go away

So far from me to be the same
I’ll try again I’m here alone
I shan’t forget I feel this way
And all the time you can dance until we meet again
To be with you
Watching your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
Away go away
To be by your side
I travel all night
Away go away
to be by your side
I travel all night
Away go away
To be by your side
I travel all night

Stanlow

Eternally
This field remains
Stanlow
No heart or head or mind
No season could erase
We set you down
To care for us
Stanlow
A vision fading fast
A million hearts to one
But so restrained
She turns away
Stanlow

I’ve seen her face in every day
The same routine along the way
Tonight in the rain
Alone

And then again it been so long
Since one single promise kept
All to say to
Reason
We wanted a heart
To say what we want to

A morning comes just as it left
A warmer feeling seldom owned
And tonight
All I see
Alone
And as she turned we always knew
That her heart was never there

Annex (B-side to Enola Gay)

Give me what I want
I need everything I can take
Division of everything
All you have

Principles never worked before
I want everything I can take
Everything I can take
