A worker's life is lonely But that's we way it's gotta be Though I'm not alone properly I'm using technology And I'm glad I've got some audio, I'm glad I got some video The TV and the radio make it OK to be alone. A worker's life is lonely Outside of the colony Though I feel I got some company I communicate digitally And I'm glad I've got some audio, Yeah I'm glad I got some video The TV and the radio they make it good to be alone. On these alone days, on these alone night Everything's alright, Electricity runs everything fine. [Audio/Video] A worker's life is lonely but that's the way it's got to be Though you're not alone properly When you're using technology And I'm glad I've got some audio, Yeah I'm glad I got some video The TV and the radio still make it cool to be alone. It's all up to you when you're switching it on It's all up to you when you're switching it off And if you ever feel inclined to desire a new way in life seek and you will find - it is all online. All across the airwaves All through everyone's LAN

When you come around As if from the playground Having to make the most noise You are someone to avoid And what is it that drives you? Fear of not doing what you're supposed to? Vanity, face and inner shame Mentality from the playground still remains In your silly games That I don't want to play When you open your mouth Nothing sincere comes out Words are not what they seem Defending and defining territory Pretending your something you're not Life's about haves and have-nots It's all about points to gain Lifes a competition display your position You're trapped in that game That I don't want to play

A beacon in your soul Is turning on I send a message out to you A communication - I need to tell you things that I couldn't say when they were around It should have been us the other way round Inside is out, upside is down and turning around I cry out to you maybe you'll hear this call Please respond and contact me I cry out to you in a message in a dream Open up and hear my call Undo your heart and then fall. Pictures on TV Maybe you see the same as I can see Other connections entangle us And help you make up your mind So we kind can find What did diverge becomes intertwined it's looking up so don't look back now it's a long way down I/you live in a city of strangers A signal will sound inside your soul. Receiver in your soul Is turning on I send a message out to you A communication - I need to tell you things that I couldn't say when they were around It should have been us the other way round Inside is out, upside is down it's up to you now i cry out to you maybe you'll hear this call Please respond and contact me I cry out to you in a message in a dream Open up and hear my call Undo your heart and then fall. Fall... Undo your heart and then fall.

Made my mind up we should not be friends But then she sent me that broken hearted text So feeling sorry I let her back in again At the cost of not knowing where I stand Now it appears, she's disappeared, Now it appears she's disappeared on what appears Some kind of Holiday Romance. Where did she touch down after her cheap flight Wonder if something might have got inside Still, waited for her hoping to reunite I stood by so many days and many nights And I dreamt of her last night We were down by the seaside I even think I told her I loved her? O, I think I loved her? O, I must have loved her? O, I think I love her O, I love her. No more hanging on! No more hanging around...

Once within a circles, now not tight The City has effected you and I Waited to pull the trigger for sometime You never ever knew me alright. Wandering round in circles all night when I heard a witness swap side enquire from distance if you like You never ever knew me alright. I'm getting rid Been waiting the day it's funny how I've seen you But stay out of my way though You never ever knew me... Running round in circles Single file heard another hypocrite Pretence aren't you sick of it? All this time You never ever knew me alright Who were all of these people I didn't like? They gave in on the inside to outside Afraid and confused in a world so wide Put up their hands and closed shut their eyes They never ever knew me, You never knew... If you do not find my path acceptable Let's go our own ways, therefore I depart from you I disengage I disengage from you.

When I am on a roller coaster Sometimes I want it to get faster I'm hoping for a disaster i don't know why recalling after Sometimes I wanna sometimes I might... give me a light Sometimes I wanna somebody

Circles 04:16
I've got to be, getting on the right track, Not going round in circles I've got to do, do what I go to do, No more going round in circles. Ooh better tell yer that I need some help yeah There's something going round in my mind Put it on the line, Make it mine. Oh just to be outside of the inside But I'm going round in circles I've got to leave unlock me outta this loop now No more going round in circles Put it on the line, Make it mine. Round and round we go Round and round I hear your calling, you'll be falling

Tread on, through the shadows Tread along, nothing really matters

Fear No Fear 06:03
In the day's last ends Comes the time again Rise to new plain then Take it to the end So c'mon... Enhanced entranced move it and you know it That a plan is in your hand We don't fear we don't fall. 40,000 years 60 million years Move it at light years Move and fear no fear

Words Alone 03:54
All the things I should have said and done, Seems in the past that I've been a cruel man, But those days have faded long ago, The ghost you've got is an obsolete ghost, Let's no longer exchange these dialogues, What am I saying - this can't be the epilogue, Live your life and I hope you find happiness This is sincere I've got nothing left against you. Oh, I wish you well.
