Track Name: Audio/Video
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
Track Name: I Don't Want To Play
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
Track Name: The Art of Viewing
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.
Track Name: Holiday Romance
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...
Track Name: You Never Knew Me
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.
Track Name: Sometimes
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
Track Name: H.A.L.
You heard a lie and you knew there was nothing you could do.
Track Name: Circles
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
Track Name: Tread Along
Tread on, through the shadows
Tread along, nothing really matters
Track Name: Fear No Fear
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
Track Name: Words Alone
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.
