B i o g r a p h y
 (by Sean Cooper)

Experimental hip-hop outfit UNKLE was one of the original artists releasing material through noted U.K. label Mo' Wax, which helped launch the instrumental mid-'90s downtempo breakbeat revival eventually termed trip-hop. Though hardly the label's highest profile group (at least until the long-delayed release of their debut LP in 1998), UNKLE numbered among its members label-head James Lavelle, who formed Mo' Wax while still in his teens as an antidote to the increasingly stale acid jazz/Northern soul scene. Stripping the music down to its barest of essentials — bass, percussion, minimal samples, and heavy effects — the Mo' Wax sound (best exemplified by the second Mo' Wax label comp, Headz, as well as its sequel, the two-part Headz II) quickly gained respectability and a large audience. Although not as prolific as other Mo' Wax artists such as DJs Shadow and Krush, Lavelle's group nonetheless played a crucial role in cementing Mo' Wax's early sound though their Time Has Come double EP, the latter of which featured remixes of the title track by Plaid, Portishead, and U2 producer Howie B. The group comprised the trio of Lavelle, Tim Goldsworthy — a mate of Lavelle's since childhood — and producer Kudo, of seminal Japanese label Major Force (and a member of the on-again, off-again psychedelic beat crew Skylab). Previous to his entrée into production, Lavelle along with Goldsworthy was deep into New York hip-hop and electro, the emerging late-'80s Sheffield bleep scene, the English acid jazz scene (which he covered as a columnist for Straight No Chaser magazine), and of course the acid house and techno explosions that were redefining the English counterculture at the time. The pair hooked up with third member Kudo through the growing rep of the latter's Love T.K.O. project, whose outbound interpretations of breakbeat and acid jazz drew Lavelle's ear. While Goldsworthy and Kudo remained more heavily involved in nuts 'n' bolts production (especially given the success of Mo' Wax, with the penning on an expansive partial ownership deal with A&M Records in 1996), Lavelle is heavily involved in the conceptual and organizational end, crafting beats and laying out vague sketches his partners then expand into full-blown tracks. Despite the scarcity of released material, UNKLE grew to wider acclaim during 1996 through remix projects for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Tortoise. After Goldsworthy and Kudo were effectively replaced by Mo' Wax bill-payer DJ Shadow, the all-star LP Psyence Fiction finally appeared in 1998. It was a disappointment considering the advance hype, and DJ Shadow distanced himself from the collective. Lavelle, amidst much work as a DJ, recruited singer/songwriter Richard File for the second UNKLE full-length, 2003's Never, Never, Land.

Guns Blazing (Drums Of Death Part 1)

Original Star Wars Trailer (before the movie's released in 1977) Sample :
Somewhere in space, this may all be happening right now

U.N.K.L.E. 77 are requesting information...

Styles like Al Pacino
Reno until the parcelino
The mad dino with the bambino, the gambino
Digger than Jim Colisemo
More reservoir dogs than Tarantino
Scales for Venezuela, Brown as Ni O
Making the block hotter than Jalepe OS
G. Luciano
Be wettin' shit like Pesci in "Casino"
Fifty dollar cigar seer
The Bosnia, the mafia
Don P. like Garcia
Drug Czar and the baby-Pah beater
The M-8 behind the bar-freer
The poughkenoughs, the panama skier
Down with the parmesan
Ready to comb like Vietnam with arms
'Cause the hollow-points and phenomenon
The cheddar-spreader
The killer with the gold Carretta
N-Leader
The sweater-letter with the hollow letter
Drama-setter
The patmeretta gettin' redder kids and mamma
Shredder
Infra-red clow off the armour better
The godfather, the problem solver
Coming through with the 6 shell revolver
Hot as lava
Guns skills that reel and in the 'ville I be the barber
Gangster saga, the motha-fuckin' face carver

Drums of death hold your breath
Give you a dose of shit that's dope as soda
The underworld family cosa-nostra
Pearl-handle inside the shoulder-holster
G. Luciano with a click but nothin' but N-S & Chicanos
You get hit up like Castrelano
italiano like crime familia
N- don't get familiar
Me and my goons might have to kill you
Up in New York
We play bloodsports at home court
And hold down forts
Soon as ya caught, get your dome torched
G Rap and Dj Shadow leave your bone squashed
Squeeze the chrome short, take no shorts
We judge and jury in the home court
Give you the clown corpse dead on the sidewalk
Surrounded by mad pedefors
Your whole frame laid in the white chalk
You got the smoking section
First-class tickets to resurrection
Forever destined to a place where N-S never rest in
Headed in hell's direction
Lost at the crossroads and intersection
Should've wore a vest for chest protection
Slug fill you to capacity, someone at the dance
Someone with the hand velocity of Butch Cassidy
Bitch N- with the audacity to blaspheme me
Got yourself caught in a motha-fuckin' tragedy


Drums of death

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Sebastian for this one ***

UNKLE Main Title Theme

There...there...there...there...

Too much equipment, and little by little we went insane
Fiery the angels fell...burning with the fires of Orc ***
U-N-K-L-E, U-N-K, U-N-K, U-N-K-K-L-L-E

Bloodstain

Alice Temple :

They say if you took it all away
This love would fall apart
I say, no way
You don't know the size of my heart.

Vicious, suspicious
It doesn't matter what I say
Users and losers
There's nothing here to make me stay.

Bloodstain on a blue vein
Take it with no shame
Love tracks on a loose train
Bloodstain

No gain with no pain
My scars are deeper than you think
Tie me, try me
One more time before I sink.

Big lies, big times
This love is not what we're about
It's too late, and I'm too straight
It's time to blow this fire out.

Bloodstain on a blue vein
Take it with no shame
Love tracks on a loose train
Bloodstain on a blue vein

Take me softly
I'm going crazy for your touch.

Bloodstain on a blue vein
(Blue....blood, blue....blood, blue...blood)
Take it with no shame
(No...take, no...take, no...take)

Be Be K Roche sample :
I'm alone
And dissatisfied
And someone else is alone
And dissatisfied too

How should you feel
When you've felt everything you can feel

Lonely Soul

Richard Ashcroft :
God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls
Yeah, yeah

I believe there's a time and a place
To let your mind drift and get out of this place
I believe there's a day and a place
That we will go to, and I know you wanna share.

There's no secret to living (There's no secret to living)
Just keep on walking
There's no secret to dying (There's no secret to dying)
Just keep on flying.

I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name
I'm gonna die in a space that don't hold my fame.

God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls.

I believe there's a time when the cord of life
Should be cut, my friends (Cut the cord, my friend)
I believe there's a time when the cord can be cut
And this vision ends (Let this vision end).

But I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name
And I'm gonna cry in a space that don't hold my fame.

Walking in the cold
Just keep on flying
There'll be a searchlight
On the mountain high
God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls
God knows you're lonely souls
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I'm a lonely soul.

I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name
I'm gonna die in a place that don't know my name.

God knows you are lonely souls
Lonely souls
Lonely souls
Lonely souls
I'm a lonely soul.

So long, little chapel
???
Pack up your light
Pack up your light
Say goodbye to the holy water life
Ohhh.....???
???
Ahhh.....

Getting Ahead In The Lucrative Field Of Artist Management

Ballbuster commercial sample :

The name of the game is Ballbuster!
It's a family game, fun for children,
And for adults, it's exciting!
You make strategic offensive and defensive moves
Then try to bust your opponent's balls!
It's as easy as checkers, but exacting like pool!
You're a ballbuster!
Ballbuster, a great new game from Mego!

*** Thanx a lot to Kári who corrected a mistake on this one ***

Nursery Rhyme

Badly Drawn Boy :

Does it mean I never let you know
Each time I turn inside
When I fully grow I'll outsize you
But I won't let you fall in love

You know it flows over me
And you won't let me drown inside


Sing a nursery rhyme to keep me quiet
Sing a nursery rhyme to keep me quiet

Woman please stay close to me, close to me
Carried through your ecstasy


You can't stop me breathing
Even when you're on fire
Know that you're weaving
With my emotional wires
Flows through me, in through me, out through me

Over me, feeling me, feeding me electrically

It's electric ballroom love X7


Do do do do, do do do do
I have to breathe the air you breathe
I'm inside you
In a room inside a room, I'm inside you
The colour changes follow your emotion
I can see when you're feeling desire
I feel him close to you
While I just walk around inside you
Don't let him close to me
Not when you know it's not the one
The one X6 that you love
It's electric ballroom love X7
Keep me quiet

Won't you sing me a nursery rhyme
To keep me quiet while you're on fire
X3
Please just sing me a nursery rhyme
To keep me quiet, while I'm inside
X2
I won't let you fall in love
You know inside, the baby knows
X4
Your baby knows X4
You're on fire, you're on fire
Keep me quiet, keep me angry

Deliver it on down with the A-1 sound
Ounce by ounce and pound for pound
Got the shit that's out of bounds
The beat's on time and I hope you feel
Nice and complete like a happy meal
Sounds of tomorrow. Can't y'all just steal?
Or is it too hectic for y'all to deal?
Gotta keep moving 'till we hit the top
My boys Unkle gonna let the beat drop
Grab the mic and I start to mop
Like I done since day one in the game of hip-hop!

Chaos

-Ordo ob kao, "Order out of chaos", and the idea is that, uh, with the
influence of powerful forces behind the scene, you can bring order out of the
chaos that we see. We know, for instance, that much of the....
-...an eerie order underneath even chaos, as if the finger of God,, in order
and disorder, is always there....
-...I think he has nothing to support this. Y-you're so full of it!
Aliens....Protecting society how? Chaos happens. There's too many people here...

Atlantique :
Gotta learn the way to turn
Hat over eye
Feeling dead more than alive
Give her something to rely on
One more time.

No one hears the sound
Fear is all around
Turn the music loud
No more lullaby.

No way in, no way out
Empty talk and TV shouts
Got to find the way around
No, you ain't no lifer
In this town.

No one hears the sound
Fear is all around
Turn the music loud
No more lullaby.

Stop the beat, hear the sound
Time has come for you to speak
Your mind

Can't you hear the sound?
Chaos all around
Turn the music loud
No more lullaby
Dee-dee-dee X2
Learn to fly.

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian who corrected some mistakes ***

Rabbit in your headlights

Thom Yorke :
I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Scared of the spotlight
You don't come to visit
I'm stuck in this bed

Thin rubber gloves
She laughs when she's crying
She cries when she's laughing

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...
(Away....away....away....)

I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Christian suburbanite
Washed down the toliet
Money to burn

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...

Sample from movie Jacob's Ladder :

If you're frightened of dyin' and you're holding on...
You'll see devils tearing your life away.
But...if you've made your peace,
Then the devila are really angels
Freeing you from the earth.....from the earth....from the earth

Rotworms on the underground
Caught between stations
Butterfingers
I'm losing my patience

I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Christian suburbanite
You got money to burn....

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away.....
Away, away, away,
Away, away, away.

Outro (Mandatory)

Uh, I feel that this has given me the msot incredible and woonderful thing
that I have ever been given, and also, the worst. It's a mixed bag. Uh, I
have been taken to the, absolutely, to the depths of extreme terror by this.
I've had my whole soul undermined by it, on the one hand. On the other hand,
Uh, in one sense, my experience has been about finding
joy...joy...joy....joy....joy...joy....joy....joy...joy...

Back And Forth

"What's it like.. To be back?"
"You see things in life and you'd be surprised what you see.
Life.. Your whole life is changes.
You go through changes in your life.
One second, you got it made.
Next second you're down in the dumps.
And it goes back and forth throughout your whole life.
One second you got the most beautiful girl in the world,
Next second you don't even have a girlfriend no more.
And it goes back and forth and back and forth, you know?
And this is life, man, it's changes.
This is what you gotta go through throughout your whole lifetime."
I'm going through changes*
"And it goes back and forth and back and forth, you know?"
Never
Never
Land.

In A State

My mind is in a state
'Cause all i seem to do is tempt my fate
Well i try every space
But all the while we're crushing at the gate
This time, this time
Reality struck me between the eyes
My mind is in a state
'Cause everything i miss it comes too late
So i try and disappear
But there is only one way out of here
This time, this time
Reality struck me between the eyes
My mind is in a state
But all i need to do is change my pace
And i know there's fear to face
But happiness is firm in its embrace
This time.

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastian & Corqsan & Dmk for these lyrics ***

Safe In Mind

Don't you go to turn around
Under the moon and stars
Can you find where [height/hides] the love
Breathing down your neck
Someone's found a way
I see the moon
The moon sees
All i do
Is twist in the breeze
Someone's found a way
To break into my mind
(someone's found a way)
(break into my mind)
Life's a gun that's always pointing
Life's a gun that's pointing in my face

What Are You To Me

"Do you dream?"
So many times i've overflowed
So many faces come and go
I play my cards into the sun
And try to work out what you are
To me
Been here before, a million open doors
Only one will set me free
So i fall against the wall
And try to work out what you are
To me
Beside my eyes the answer lies
Something i can't see
Another day, another way
It's all the same to me
To me.
("What's wrong?")

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastian & Corqsan & Dmk for these lyrics ***

Panic attack

As i juxtapose
Between lock and load
Gotta cut some slack
Between these back to back panic attacks
(panic attack panic attack)
I love the madness
It's killing me
Our love is behind
And i'm so blind i cannot see
As i juxtapose
In between lock and load
Gotta cut some slack
Between these back to back panic attacks
(panic attack panic attack)
I love the madness
It's killing me
Our love is behind
And i'm so blind i cannot see
I love the madness.

Invasion

Show them only
Flesh you needed
You want it for you too
[stares, stares that follow]
[stares, stares that follow]
They want it for you
Are you all that
You're cracked up to be
We all want it for you
Sacrificial
Made for tv
[laughter's coming]
And goodbye kisses
Gave him family
Pray your dream
Pray you're dreaming
Are you all that
You're cracked up to be
We all want it for you
Stares that follow
Friends to call on
Don't be desperate
[show them once]
Sacrificial
Made for tv
Laughter's coming
Goodbye kisses
[pray you stutter]
[pray it's not old]
Goodbye.

Reign

I am the lighten, i am the heal
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day
I am the reign
I'm gonna reign this way again
I am the reign

I am the spark
Before the blaze
I am the raindrop out at sea
I cause the ripples that become the crashing waves (crashing waves)
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day
I am the reign (i am the reign...)

You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all
You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all

I am the reign
I'm gonna reign this way again (this reign way again)
I am the reign, reigner, reigner, reign all day

You thought a different day had come
A day you thought the earth was done
I am the reign
And if you could have said it all
I know you would have said it all
I am the reign

*** Thanx a lot to Corqsan for this one ***

Glow

Out of all contexts and scenery
[issue's] laughter rings inside of me
Aching paths don't cross so easily
Break my back to see things differently
So glow
We've held off the cold
Low and behold
The season's passing toll
I find reasons and stop wondering
The different ways in which we feel the same
Give too much to what-if imagery
Now the second time means more to me
So glow
We've held off the cold
So glow
We've held off the cold
Low and behold
Turns winter spring and fall.

*** Thanx a lot to Kari & Dmk for these lyrics ***

Inside

"The only thing that burns in hell,
Is the part of you that won't let go of your life.
Your memories, your attachments, they burn them all away.
But they're not punishing you, it's that..
They're freeing your soul. Relax."*

Somethings gone
This can't go on
It's all been wrong
For far too long

Through all these tears
No light appears
And all that trust
Has turned to dust

So one things clear
I wanna hear
I wanna hear

So break on through
For something true
'cos love's confused

And love does see
Sense in all of this
Something's gotta give

You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
Inside of me

You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
Inside of me

You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
Inside of me

You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
Inside of me

In time
You'll find
In time
You'll find

You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
You don't wanna see
Inside of me

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastian & Dmk for these lyrics ***

Awake the unkind

I think you're standing
In the wake of my only
Big mistake
And all i do is think
We look inside me
To find another take
Well it's make
Or break
Got one chance to take
And you look
And you find
And you wake
The unkind
Guess the stake
In my mind
Is driven by your kind
I know you're stranded
For the sake of [you for me]
You take
And all you do is sink
Into the picture
Of another scandalous creature
And all you do is sink
'Cause you look
And you find
And you wake
The unkind
Guess the stake
In my mind
Is driven by your kind
When you look
You will find
That the stake
Is entwined
In your fake
Calloused mind
Nothing but delight.

*** Thanx a lot to Dmk for these lyrics ***

War Stories

Intro

Please forgive me

How thoughtless of you to let me down
When I thought you'd be around
I could have easily found
Someone else

Hold My Hand

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don't know how

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don't know how

Are you living the feeling
The highs are they worth seeking
Nothing like believing
Are your drugs healing

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don`t know how

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don`t know how

Are you really living
Or do you seek loving
Are you happy being
Or do you search for meaning

Are you ever asking
Questions they need answering
You're not really hearing
You really need releasing

A million pieces broken
A million secrets unspoken
A million pieces broken
A million secrets unspoken

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don't know how

Hold my hand
I need you now
Slow me down
I don't know how

Secrets everywhere
Secrets everywhere
Secrets everywhere
Secrets everywhere

Restless

Josh Homme :

Well I'm all restless but I don't care
You don't like me much, well me neither
You go me, my, ma, like you're some kind of God
You live like someone trippin' on the same one you lost

I'm in you, you're on me
i'm in you, you're on me

Got this sinking feeling, so if I sing it it's true
There ain't no habit that I will not defend
If it comes back well I will not resend
I'm broken, house broken
Now you on the mend

I'm in you, you're on me

Those who pay, will just pay it again
Never beginning nor a jewel at the end
Rip me from the breakage and solvents
Taking over, I'll just take what you got

I'm in you, you're on me
I'm in you, you're on me
You're the truth, I do believe
I'm in you, you're on me
Easy

Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love

Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow, gonna follow, gonna follow the light to the love

Well I've gone restless, I don't care
I got fifteen  bucks worth of savoir faire
You wanna step in my way you won't step again
I just break it, I just bend, I resend

I'm in you, you're on me
I'm in you, you're on me
I'm in you, you're on me...

Gonna follow the light to the love
Gonna follow the light to the love...

Keys to the kingdom

Gavin Clark :

I shoot it low
Kill the flow
Ruin myself out of the northshore

I make it one
Watch the sun
Sink behind the trees to the keys to the kingdom

I shoot it high
Let it fly
Bury myself under a blue sky

I see a scheme
Make it clean
Drown in blue rivers under a muffle screams

Come the number wishing I could make a man
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

I hit down
Kill the sound
Ruin myself out on the northshore

I make it one
Kill the sun
Bury my disease with the keys to the kingdom

Come the number wishing I could make a man
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

I shoot it low
Shoot it low
Kill the flow
Kill the flow
Ruin myself out of the northshore

Come the number wishing I could make a man
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

Come the number wishing I could make a man
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

Price you pay

No one can tell me just why it is
That it always has to come to this

Fix it up
Throw it away
I don't get it
The price you pay

Makes no sense no matter what you say
What sticks inside ain't gonna fade away

Fix it up
Throw it away
I don't care
It's the price you pay

I'm falling away
I'm falling away
I'm falling away
I'm falling away

...

Too high, too low

I'm falling away
I'm falling away
I'm falling away
I'm falling away

Burn my shadow

Ian Astbury :

I have burned my tomorrows
And I stand inside today
At the edge of the future
And my dreams all fade away

I have burned my tomorrows
And I stand inside today
At the edge of the future
And my dreams all fade away

And burn my shadow away
And burn my shadow away

Fate’s my destroyer
I was ambushed by the light
And you judged me once for falling
This wounded heart arrives

And burn my shadow away
And burn my shadow away

When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
Burn my shadow
When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
Oh burn my shadow
When I see the light
True love forever
When I see the light
True love forever
Away

And burn my shadow away
Oh how I loved you

Mayday

Duke Spirit :

I ebb and
You flow
It's a bit screwed
But you can't catch my love

I ebb and
You flow
It's a bit screwed
But you can't catch my love

These stars are
Glistening
These stars are
Listening

I hear that
You float
It's a bit screwed
But you can't catch my love

Autolux :

We're all getting so tired of you
The things you say
The things you do

Oh please just follow your great plan though
We've all had it

We've had it with you

Homesick with some imaginary flu
You wanna get drafted
We wanna get sued

Oh please just follow your great plan though
We've all had it
We've had it
We've had it with you

Trying to feel good

We all lost our hearts
Trying to feel good
We all lost our hearts
Trying to feel good

Oh please just follow your great plan though

We all lost our hearts

We all lost our hearts
Trying to feel good
We all lost our hearts
We all lost our hearts
Trying to feel good

Morning Rage

Something burns inside me, man
Can't explain, won't understand
Anger, rage and war crime
Fear, fate and lullabies

And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up

Something burns inside me, man
Won't explain, can't understand
Seeking truth for someone's eyes
Crowed lows and lonely highs

And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up

What was that all about
Somethings turned me inside out
So I put myself around
Cause you pull me in then turn me out

What was that all about
Somethings turned me inside out
So I put myself around
Cause you pull me in then turn me out

Something burns inside me, man
Don't explain, won't understand
Darling please don't walk away
Frozen hearts don't like to say

And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up

What was that all about
Somethings turned me inside out
So I put myself around
Cause you pull me in then turn me out

What was that all about
Somethings turned me inside out
So I put myself around
Cause you pull me in then turn me out

Nothing last forever, man
Nothing lasts forever and
Nothing lasts forever, man
Nothing lasts forever and

And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up
And wake up, and wake up

Lawless

In the dead of night
I become someone else
Cut all my ties
Blow my mind of the shelf

We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, up all night
We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, no restraint

Let it rise
Way out of control
You can't disguise
What's inevitable

We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, up all night
We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, no restraint

In the dead of night
I become someone else
Cut all my ties
Blow my mind of the shelf

We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, up all night
We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, no restraint

We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, up all night
We're a lawless brigade
Up all night, no restraint

Broken

Gavin Clark :

Dead state I can feel the weight
Light streaming in through an open grate
Two thread score tearing up the floor
Out in the alley with the trigger draw

Numb hands I can see the strand
Hold it together with a severed ban

Three lost years I've been crying here
I'm over, I'm over, I'm over, I'm broken

Strung out with wings of the dawn
Hole in the black soul in the storm
Torn down through the cracks in the dark
We're miles adrift we're inches apart

I'm hit I can feel the grit
Sat in the asher on the beaten brick
Two thread main running through the vein

Out in the centre with a mirrored cane
Numb feet I can hear you speak
Hold it together with a severed streak

Three lost years I've been crying here
I'm over, I'm over, I'm over, I'm broken

Strung out with wings of the dawn
Hole in the black soul in the storm
Torn down through the cracks in the dark
We're miles adrift we're inches apart

Stood up on the side og the earth
Thrown back to the track to the dirt
Two thread lose an hour a day
We're miles adrift, we're inches away...

Hold it together with a severed bank
Can't feel the blood

When things explode

Ian Astbury :

Your skull froze little lives
In shadows where you hide
A life that was designed
You've been cheated oh so blind

You laid it on the line
These twisted words of time
And how your spirit shines
I wish that you were mine

Yeah lately I know that I've been crawling
I know that I've been falling
Into your dream

Imagine no more tears
Dissolving all your feras
With tooth and claw we fight
Into this endless night

Yeah lately I know that I've been crawling
I know that I've been falling
Into your dream

I saw my tears in your eyes
You saw your fears in mine
We watched it burn together
Watched it burn together

Burn yeah, burn watched it burn burn yeah burn
Watched it burn, burn watched it burn
Watched it burn, burn watched it burn

All is forgiven

Buying a lie

Lee Gorton :

I didn't know what I never like
His looking at me like you have something to hide
If I would have said I would have known
You're trying to run while I'm trying to grow

How does it feel are you dying inside
Trying to cover up, these's no reply

I don't know what you know
I don't know what you know
I wanna say what every knows
You're buying the lie but you're selling your soul
Why would you say you want us to lose

You're looking at me but you see what you choose
'Cause I don't agree with everyone else
You're changing the rules
But you're cheating yourself

I don't know what you know
Though I know why the wind blows cold on you

Sloping away and I'm sure you're inside
I have nothing to lose and nothing to hide
Too many people living alone
Take a look at yourself
And then check what you know

How does it feel are you dying inside
Trying to cover up, these's no reply
I don't know what you know
I don't know what you know

I gotta feeling that you're looking to find
May be some kind of meaning
But I have nothing in mind
Why would you side with anyone else
When you're figuring out
What you're thinking yourself

How will you learn when
You don't want to know
How does it feel to
Believing in everything you're told

I don't know what you know
Though I know why the wind blows cold on you

Mistress

Alice Temple :

My footsteps echo in early night
I see my shadows secret
It won't belong

My heart beats to a rhythm
I'm come closing in on a designation
I walk through the elevator door
As I'm risen I begin to hear
Feel you a lot alone

A cold wind bites all around me
But I'm warm on the inside
I don't need no drug tonight
This nights gonna change me forever
This room says anything goes
All I need is to be alive tonight

I breathe the smells around me
I'm choking but I want more
You're closing in

Oh mistress come to me
Come to me, come, come to me

A cold wind bites all around me
But I'm warm on the inside
I don't need no drug tonight
This nights gonna change me forever
This room says anything goes
Oh what a pity his alive tonight...

Waiting for hell to begin

Waiting for-ever
Waiting for hell to kick in

In this world it is a nightmare
You gotta give it more

Against The Grain

A cut of the wrist
Don't leave me strength
There's an arrow only I can take
Cover the marks
Don't leave me strength
Hold me while I lose my grip

Don't look up, you can save yourself
Don't look right, there ain't anybody else
Don't cry out, don't expose your name
You gotta keep against the grain

Don't look up, you can save yourself
Don't look right, there ain't anybody else
Don't look up, you can mark your name
Don't look down, you're against the grain

You're losing yourself behind the face that you created
You're losing your head inside of all that you created
You're losing your feet above the world that you created
You created
You created

Don't look up, you can save yourself
Don't look right, there ain't anybody else
Don't cry out, don't expose your name
You gotta keep against the grain

Don't look up, you can save yourself
Don't look right, there ain't anybody else
Don't look up, you can mark your grave
Don't look down, you're against the grain

Hold me when I lose my grip, I really need you
Hold me when I lose my grip, I know I'll need you
You know I'll need you
You know I'll need you

Heaven

Where's the Seraphim
Where's the money that we made
Where's the open gate
Where's the fortune that we saved

Heaven's here for you and me
With every falling curl
Heaven's here for you and me
We gained ourselves the world

Hit the Motorway
I can take it all at speed
I got everything
I got everything you need

Heaven's here for me and you
Scattered out with pearls
Heaven's here for me and you
We gained ourselves the world

Where's the warrior of light
With gates of solid gold
Paranoia through the fight
With dreams that never fold
Heaven's here for me and you

Where Did The Night Fall

Follow Me Down

(feat. Sleepy Sun)

You're wondering if it's worth it
You're wondering what to do
You're asking me to see the future
And you want me to tell it to you

See I can't believe it myself
So how can I prove it to you
That this is all a dream

Okay follow me down
Come on you can trust me now
Okay follow me down
You can trust me now

Recurring thoughts of separation
Ones in which we are all alone
What keeps our heart from feeling wholeness
And everywhere we look we see ourselves

I'm not inclined to think in braided spirals
I know I wasn't always this way
What do I do and is it really worth it

Okay follow me down
Come on you can trust me now
Okay follow me down
You can trust me now

*** Thanx a lot to Garry for this official one ***

Natural Selection

(feat. The Black Angels)

One day I'll find the perfect one for me
They will be pretty and funny at least to me
Crooked teeth and everything
I want to meet my perfect lady

I think I saw her at the picture with her only
I think I saw her at the picture with him
I move towards her she thinks of him

And the holidays we spend with our friends
Across the country we find ourselves again
Another galaxy removed from ourselves
I think we met in a station in some city

Maybe I'll find the right one for me

One day I'll find the right one for me
She will be pretty and funny at least to me
Pigeon feet and everything
I want to meet my perfect lady

I think I saw her at the diner with her only
I think I saw her at the drive in with him
I stare at her and she s lovin him

Maybe I'll find the right one for me

*** Thanx a lot to Darek for this official one ***

Joy Factory

(feat. Autolux)

So much you can't get home
Somehow you lost the wind
Come up come up for air
In your mind you have feet ten

You're sure you're sure your soul
Goes up and in and down
The only dream you own
Wears you out

No ordinary joy
You'll always miss your mark
All the way
So in the factory
I knew you messed it up
With me

And now you're missing more
And now you're missing more
And now you're missing home

Uncross your eyes and breath
You'll be missing in your skin
Forget where you come from
Imagination always wins

It's locked in the froze
The day passing blue
Too much for everyone
Just try for you

It's no ordinary joy
You'll always miss your mark
All the way
So in the factory
I knew you messed it up
For me

The Answer

(feat. Big In Japan)

Here we are
Burning up in our cars
And in our hearts

Better days
Sleeping late with a headache
Perfect weather

Congregate,
Lay in wait for an answer
They're still waiting

Grit your teeth
Lucky tastes as the day breaks
The blind are leading the blind

Never better days without headache
Perfect weather (x4)

Funeral lights
Dots go dashing the highway
Nothings moving

Radiates
Everything lasting for seconds…
Evaporating

Lover's lips
Drinking late at the station
Smiling faces

Coming clean
Wiping your face and whatever
There's an answer

Never better days without headache
Perfect weather (x4)

On A Wire

( feat. ELLE J )

I am waiting for the clouds to divide
I am willing my subconscious to pay up
I must admit that I am passing it on
I never though that I would have to give up

I am sharing knowledge that I cannot explain
Feel forced to express my intent
It's not my fault that you're not listening
I'm coming through clear across the long decent

Out on a limb, on a wire, by a thread you collide
On a limb, on a wire, by a thread you collide (x3)
Through your eye with your mind and your soul

Alone I master the miles and time
All solid form and light reflecting shape
Despite the trip this is bending my mind
I need to find a root or escape

Those savage nights find relief in the dawn
All the subtleties are lost on you
There are links missing in this chain
Are you falling for the broken man again?

Out on a limb, on a wire, by a thread you collide
On a limb, on a wire, by a thread you collide (x3)
Through your eye with your mind and your soul

Find the fight within you

Falling Stars

(feat. Gavin Clark)

Too much love
I got too much love
As a vision slides
I got too much love
I got too much love
As a motion dies

You figure there's time
For a man to run
You figure there's time
For the falling stars come down on us

Run run run till you think you're made
Run run run till you're told you're safe
Run run run till you're overcome
Run run run you're the only one

I got too much love
Don't deceive me now
As the color slows
I got too much love
For a glitter doll
For the rainfall

You figure there's time
For a man to run
You figure there's time
For the falling stars come down on us

Run run run till you think you're made
Run run run till you're told you're safe
Run run run till you're overcome
Run run run you're the only one

Run run run till you think you're safe
Run run run till you're told you're made
Run run run till you're overcome
Run run run you're the only one

Don't step down

I got too much love
For the glitter doll
And my emotion slides
In another end
In another life
I was on your side

Heavy Drug

You're my heavy drug

I need your love

Caged Bird

(feat Katrina Ford)

The wind did blow
Across the valley
So we can run
Under illusion
This one dream
I see is true
The caged bird
Sings the blues
For you
This one dream
I see is true
The caged bird
Sings the blues
For you
I know where we can fly
Into, into thin air
Something to believe
Or beware
Into thin air
Something to believe
Or beware
Into thin air
Oh I know where we can fly
Hold on
Oh someway
To break the cage
And route the Rage to love
Love
Oh for so many nights
A prayer to breach
That star you’ll
Reach tonight
Into, into thin air
Something to believe
Or beware
Into thin air
No light despair
Into thin air
Something to believe
Hold on
It’s all a dream
It seems to
Feel the air you breathe
There’s so much needing
We are believing
Hold on

*** Thanx a lot to Darek for this official one ***

Ablivion

This is how it all begins
A ride into oblivion
Faster than we've ever been
Faster than we've ever been

Listen to the city screams
Stranded in another dream
Further than we've ever seen
Further than we've ever seen

Electric shock and we begin
A mile above the mess we're in
Higher than we've ever been
Higher than we've ever been

So far gone I won't ever stop
For all that I am
For all I'm not
So far gone the age
I'm on I see it now oblivion

This is an awakening
This is what the children sing
Higher than we've ever been
Higher than we've ever been

The city lights we left behind
Stranded in another time
Out of sight, out of mind
This is where it all begins
We cross into oblivion
This is where it all begins
We've crossed into oblivion

So far gone I won't never stop
I'll let you go and watch you drop
So far gone I can't hold the grip
Another hit and watch us slip
So far gone I won't ever stop
For all that I am
For all I'm not
So far gone the age I'm on
I see it now oblivion

I see it now oblivion

The Runaway

(feat. ELLE J)

Never mind he whispered in my ear
Could have been anyone's mistake
Let's just press rewind from here
And call it quits for time's sake

Ring me twice then I know you need me
Call me back right away
Somebody told me you've been thieving
Are you loosing sight of the line?

Wanna know wanna know when you're breaking even
Wanna know wanna know when you're breaking down

From now on you'll sleep with one eye open
Keep your credit up
And hardly leave the house
I'll find you anywhere you're hiding
I'll see you won't get out

Wanna know wanna know when you're breaking even
Wanna know wanna know when you're breaking down

Back on the front line
I'm back on the front

Now you're back on
The front line
I'm back on the front

Ever Rest

(feat. Joel Cadbury)

Small part of me
The light by which I see
I'm not trying to break you down
I'm not trying to break you down
A single tear can be
Every part of me
One drop can wash me down
One drop can clear me out

And then one day
Regrets in every combat

Feign dignity
Come for miles to see
I'm not trying to break you down
I'm not trying to break you down
A single tear can mean
Everything to me
One drop can wash me down
One drop can clear me out

I'm holding to nothing
Repeat my destruction
Inside voices taunt me
Just holding to nothing
Repeat my destruction
Inside voices haunt me

We'll climb from the fire
This land won’t tie me

The Healing

( Featuring Gavin Clark )

Battle scars and neon lights
She holds the flame
She owns the night
And she scars my soul

The road again
Strobe light highs
Paralyzed anesthetized
And she sold my soul

And I'm healing, healing
Healing from the blows
Yeah I'm healing, healing
Healing from the blows
Yeah I'm healing
Healing from the blows

Neon smiles narcotic light
The sulphur room
The hundreds nights
And she stole my heart

Cut of time
Reckless bleed
Sedated smiles
Kick the need
And she steals my soul

And I'm healing, healing
Healing from the blows
Yeah I'm healing, healing
Healing from the blows
Yeah I'm healing
Healing from the blows

Another Night Out

(feat. Mark Lanegan)

Lift the wheels up from the roadway
Close your sparrow's glassy eyes
And walk upon the water
Once more for me
Are those dead diamonds baby
Or are these stars gone to sleep?

So low that you might miss me
Ah yeah
Slowly fades the light
So low that you might miss me
Ah yeah
Slowly fades the light

Wait for the spring

And to this thing
I do surrender
Into the darkest sin
I climb with the vine
On a graveyard train
Pulling away
Drowning to dive
Down full fathom five
To wear the hollow crown
To haunt the hollow trees

And what from heaven's tongue is heard?
Through the veins
Love sustained
Another night out

So low that you might miss me
Slowly fades the light

Another night out
Another night out
Wait for the spring

And to this thing
I give myself
On a graveyard train
Pulling away
Down into heaven
Down into heaven
Down into heaven

To wear the hollow crown
To haunt the hollow trees
To wear the hollow crown
To haunt the hollow trees

Be there

( Featuring Ian Brown )

You don't wanna go there
Let me lead you by the hand
You don't wanna be there
Over the sea and down to land

As I look into your eyes
I pay no mind
I found the way
To get inside you
I'll give you peace of mind

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling beautiful
Sometimes

You don't wanna go there
Let me lead you by the hand
You don't wanna be there
Over the sea and down to land

As I look into your eyes
I pay no mind
I found the way
To get inside you
I'll give you peace of mind

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling beautiful
Sometimes

Here I am
And there you're
Falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling, falling

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling beautiful
Sometimes

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling beautiful
Sometimes

Falling, falling, free

I don't see you falling,
I don't see you falling,

Corrupt, a plea for free will
An irresponsible horror show
It has been suggested
That this contradictory

Money And Run

Nick Cave:

Here come the skillfull blows
Here come the puppet men with their fists
You know those backroom ghouls
They make it impossible to resist

I took the money
I took the money and I ran
Ran around the world
Run, little rabbit, run

I don't wanna go there
I don't wanna see
Every time I come down here
somebody is bent on killing me

I don't wanna go there
with all them hungry mouths to feed
Every time I come down here
Somebody is bent on killing me

There goes the Jigsaw man
Stuffing you in the pockets of his pants
We thought we'd make it safe and clear
But we never really stood a chance

We took it the money
We took it over everything we held true
Ran around the world
Yeah, little rabbit, run

I don't wanna be here
Running through the rain
I could do it over man
There ain't a thing that I would not change

All my friends are gone
Left me freezing on a beach
And every time I crawl up here
Somebody tries to take a piece of me

We spent the money
We spent it sailing down the drain
Every time I raise my head
They kill me once
And they kill me all over again
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I don't wanna go there
Oh I don't wanna see
Every time I come down here
Somebody is bent on killing me

Take the money and run
Round and round the world we go
Take the money and run
Round and round the world we go
Run, little rabbit, run
Round and round the world we go
Take the money and run
Round and round the world we go
Run, little rabbit, run
Round and round the world we go
Round and round the world we go
Round and round the world we go
Run, little rabbit, run
Round and round the world we go
Oh yeah
Round and round the world we go
Oh yeah
Round and round the world we go
Yeah run, little rabbit, run
Round and round the world we go
Run away
Round and round the world
Round and round the world
Take the money
Take the money and run

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Safe in mind
(please get this gun from out my face)

Don't you go to turn around
Under the moon & stars
Can you find where hides the love?
Breathing down your neck

Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way
Someone's found a way

I see the moon, the moon sees
All i do is twist in the breeze

Someone's found a way
To break into my mind
Someone's found a way
To break into my mind
Someone's found a way
To break into my mind
Someone's found a way
To break into my mind

(someone's found a way...)
....to break into my mind....

Aaaahhh...
Aaaahhhh...

Live's a gun that's always pointing
Live's a gun that's pointing in my face

(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)

Aaaahhh...
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)
Aaaahhhh...
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)
(someone's found a way...)

Aaaahhh...
Someone's found a way...
Someone's found a way...
Aaaahhh...
Someone's found a way...
Someone's found a way...
(to break into my mind...)
(to break into my mind...)

I like...
The street, the smells
The sense of the underworld
Sometimes you come face to face with yourself

*** Thanx a lot to Corqsan for this one ***

With You In My Head

( feat. The Black Angels / The Twilight Saga - Eclipse OST )

You keepin on a holdin',
A-holdin' on a-keepin,
No giving into taking more but still still feedin',
You're clearly disturbed,
All you want is allegiance
Hear them what you saw
You hear them what you saw
You hear them what you saw
You hear them with believin'
Oh holy holy water washing over the soul

Collecting all the people you love to sing you a song
Even if they stick to humming
Holding on a song to see them
When you're really sick-a sick-a sick of love
Leaving with their heart
To shape them within
Even if they stay to running
Hold 'em on the soul, believing
Till you wanna stick-a stick-a stick to love

When you went down, the men came callin'
Changing to stone as you wept from fallin
When you went down, the men came callin'
Speaking in tongues we've all been summoned.
Ride, you wait to hug the shoal, you hate the thought, you're so-so.
You seem so dark to cry.

Oh, we're ready, honey
I got all the skills
You've given all our love for you
Everything you taught me honey
It never even mattered, really
It's all of our love for you

With you in my head
With you in my head
With you in my head

When you went down, the men came callin'
Faded in stone as you wept from fallin
When you went down, the men came callin'
Singing in tongues, it makes things summoned.

Oh, we're ready, honey
I got all the skills
You've given all our love for you
Everything you taught me honey
It never even mattered, really
It's all of our love for you

I hope that I'm ready, honey
I got all the skills
You've given all our love for you
Everything you taught me honey
It never even mattered, really
It's all of our love for you
