The Pressure Sensitive


The Pressure Sensitive

There’s a lover on the midnight train
There’s a lover in a moving frame

Only the lonely
Don’t leave me lonely
Don’t leave me lonely

The pressure sensitive

Got the devil deep inside you

Hey man lay man

Wrong Connection

Now there’s a man who’s gonna see you right
He’s got a magic theatre bathed in perfumed light
Neither father, son or holy ghost
He’ll give you something when you’re lying on the ropes

Saved your loving arms for Jesus now he’s back in town
To turn your world around
Lift your perfect cloud

Gonna make you laugh gonna make you sing
Pretty soon you’ll be losing your protection
Give you love give you everything
’Til you find out you made the wrong connection
It’s a bad connection

A hundred bucks a prayer will see him through
It’s just enough for him to gather you
Says ‘keep the faith until we meet again
I’ve got to fly you’ve had the best of saintly men’

Bathed your loving arms for Jesus now he’s back in town
To turn your world around
Lift your perfect cloud

Gonna make you laugh gonna make you sing
Pretty soon you’ll be losing your protection
Give you love give you everything
Give you everything
Gonna make you laugh gonna make you sing
Pretty soon you’ll be losing your protection
Give you love give you everything
’Til you find out you made the wrong connection

MORE OF THE SAME REALLY...ERM VERY CLEAR IN THE LYRIC!!!!THIS WAS THE FIRST 'LES PAUL' ALBUM TRACK COMPLETED .ERM ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER I DECIDED TO REPLACE ONE OF MY GUITARS AND DO AN ENTIRE RECORD WITH IT..MMM MEATY.....

8 Days

She called just to tell me she’d left me and she could protect me no more
So for 8 days I drifted and tried to lose sight of her frozen shores

Don’t look at the sun
It don’t shine for anyone
But it smiled on me now

Love look at us now I’m out of touch how does it feel
I’m lost you’re burning me down now I’m saying it out loud
I need you here yeah
8 days is too long
Too long
The heart is the name but you know that the mind is the face of emotion
And my cuts are so deep that I’ll say all I need with one act of devotion

Oh baby I’m gone
There’s a killer on the run
Can’t you see it in me

Love look at us now I’m out of touch how does it feel
I’m lost you’re burning me down now I’m saying it out loud
I need you here yeah
Love look at us now I’m out of touch how does it feel
I’m lost you’re burning me down now leaving me out of sight
I need you here yeah
8 days is too long
Too long
8 days

There’s no turning back now it’s over I’m sinking the wheels are in motion
And I’m out of this world but at home I lay five fathoms deep in the ocean

Oh baby I’m gone
You’re enough for anyone
And I was someone baby

8 days is too long
Look at us now
Too long
How does it feel
I’m lost you’re burning me down now I’m saying it out loud
I need you here
Love look at us now
Look at us now
How does it feel
Love look at us now
Look at us now
I need you here

Great West Code

I’m flicking through the papers
Some ancient magazine
Wide eyed anticipation
Somewhere it has to be

I needed information
Out here it gets so quiet
So suddenly it hit me
I made the waters part
I made the waters part
I made the waters part

I’m going down that hidden road
I think I’ve found the great west code

It was no accident
I lost the Orient
Just when the time was right now right now
I learned to elevate I learned to yeah!

I’ve had enough of here and now
I’ve kissed the beast goodbye
And packed my bags to find now
A new god of my own
A new place
An new space of my own yeah!

I’m going down that hidden road
I think I’ve found the great west code
Don’t let me down just take me home
I think I’ve found the great west code

I need some information
I needed information
I need the information

I’ve had enough of here and now
I know I’ve found a solution
I’m sick of going round and round here
Sometimes we need a new revolution

I’m going down that hidden road
I think I’ve found the great west code
Don’t let me down just take me home
I think I’ve found the great west code
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Down down down
The great west code
I’m going down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
I think I’ve found
The great west code

THIS LYRIC WAS WRITTEN ABOUT AN OLD MATE OF MINE WHO DECIDED AFTER MANY HALLUCINAGENIC EXPERIENCES THAT HE WAS GOD...I FEEL SOMEWHAT RESPONSIBLE FOR HIM AS IT WAS SOMETHING I HAD DONE FOR YEARS AND GOT OVER BUT HE WANTED TO FOLLOW THE SAME PATH -UNFORTUNATELY SOME PEOPLE NEVER COME DOWN!!!!!!HAHA. WE LIVED TOGETHER FOR TWO YEARS AND HAVE BARELY SPOKEN SINCE....I REALLY LIKE THE PRODUCTION ON THIS PIECE.........

Shattered

I’m standing on the bridge, my ship is going strong,
No land for forty years, it doesn’t seem that long.
I saw the birth of Venus with my loaded brush,
I held Eve’s hand for moments, there was no one but us,

Just like a bottle that can’t be filled,
They say I’m like time that can’t be killed,
My judge, my jury say I’m -

Shattered.
I’m falling to pieces.
Shattered.
I’m falling to pieces.
Falling to pieces.
I’d say I’m fine.

I looked into the future – didn’t need a crystal ball,
I thought I’d find you there but never saw you at all.
Just filling in spaces to get my point across,
I’m going to reach you someday, but I think you’ll find I’m lost.

I’m falling to pieces,
Take me out of here

It's based on my experiences in re-hab clinics when I was a kid. I can remember being examined one day by 5 psychiatrists simultaneously in a dark room, and being asked things like "do you hear voices" etc., but I was so gone that morning that I was at the right department, but the wrong clinic. It was and remains a vivid experience/memory, and at that point in my life I was literally falling to pieces. THIS AS YOU MAY KNOW WAS PERFORMED BY THE STRANGLERS BUT I CANNOT REMEMBER HOW WE NEVER DID RECORD IT...PITY.. ANYWAY I DECIDED TO AS I WANTED TO HEAR WHAT IT COULD SOUND LIKE.SO I TWEAKED IT A BIT AND LIKED THIS VERSION.THIS IS A SONG ABOUT ANOTHER DRUG - FUELLED EPISODE...ERM BASED ON MY PAST ERM AND ....WELL THE LYRICS SAY IT ALL REALLY SO GO AND LISTEN AGAIN..HAHA.....

Soul Healer

Around and round we go
Pretty pretty little soul
Do you believe in the ghost
Daddy take you home

You say you find it strange
How we destroy the things that we can’t change
Never give up hope
Let me take you home

You say your mind is like a house about to fall
I wouldn’t worry if it made no sense at all
You know the truth is only what it seems to be
Sometimes the proof is only what it means to me

Kiss me I’m a slow fever
Twisting like a cold steel now
Lifting I’m a heart beater
Gifted I’m a soul healer

Proud of all we know
Scared of what we don’t but never let it show
Create a little space
In a world we can call our own

We could talk all night
Under the moon and stars and make it right
Falling every time
Going make you mine

I don’t really want to hear about your life
In the end I’ll give you nothing more than lies
I can’t help thinking that I’ll soon forget your face
And your heart beating

Kiss me I’m a slow fever
Twisting like a cold steel now
Lifting I’m a heart beater
Gifted I’m a soul healer

I’ll soon forget your face
I can’t forget your face

THIS IS ABOUT AN OLDER GUY TRYING TO HANG ON TO YOUTH USING HIS EXPERIENCE AND PROWESS TO SIMPLY GET A YOUNG GIRL IN HIS BED ....(OR ANYWHERE REALLY) .....SORT OF AGEING BAR FLY WHO BULLSHITS TO PICK UP BABES EVERY NIGHT.....

The Grace Of God

Well there but by the grace of god

I’m a lover on a midnight train
I’m a lover in a midnight train

The animals stare into my cage
Empty minds eyes ablaze
I need a place to ease my mind and dream of mother water

I’m a lover on a midnight train
I’m the lover in the moving frame

With burning rubber sweet aroma
Choking up my senses
Lead bellies crowd the sky
There’s a place to ease my mind and dream of mother water
The kiss of mother water
The kiss

I’m a lover on a midnight train
There’s a lover on a midnight train

Where frozen souls are locked inside
Some gifted visionaries child
Nobody walks alone
This is the place I call home

The kiss of mother water
The kiss

DEDICATED TO ALL OF THE ABOVE ...PULLING THE WHOLE C.D. TOGETHER AND BACK TO ZERO SO WE CAN BEGIN TO INDULGE OR FACE OUR FEARS AGAIN.....THE END SECTION WITH THE REPEAT OF THE KIDS PLAYING IS PERFECT EMOTIONALLY FOR THE WHOLE CONCEPT..THE CHANT WHICH SOUNDS SO SINISTER WAS THERE AS SOON AS I STARTED TO RECORD AND IT IS WONDERFUL.A GREAT BIT OF LUCK...
