Intruder

I know something about opening windows and doors
I know how to move quietly - to creep across creaky wooden floors
I know where to find precious things in all your cupboards and drawers

Slipping the clippers
Slipping the clippers through the telephone wires
The sense of isolation inspires
Inspires me

I like to feel the suspense when I'm certain you know I am there
I like you lying awake, your bated breath charging the air
I like the touch and the smell of all the pretty dresses you wear

Intruder's happy in the dark
Intruder come
Intruder come and he leave his mark
leave his mark
I am the intruder.


No Self Control

Got to get some food
I'm so hungry all the time
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Got to get some sleep
I'm so nervous in the night
But I don't know how to stop
Hey, I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop
Hey I don't know how to stop

I got to pick up the phone
I will call any number
I will talk to anyone
I know I gone too far
Much too far I gone this time
Cos, I don't want to think what I've done
I don't know how to stop
Hey I don't know how to stop

There are always hidden silences
Waiting behind the chair
They come out when the coast is clear
They eat anything that moves
I go shaky at the knees
Lights go out, stars come down
Like a swarm of bees

No self-control, No self-control
No self-control, No self-control
No self-control, No self-control
No self-control, No self-control
No self-control, No self... No, No

You know I hate to hurt you
I hate to see your pain
But I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Street after street
Night after night
I walk on through the rain
I walk on through the rain
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop
No I don't know how to stop
Hey I don't know how to stop
Hey I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop


I Don't Remember

I got no means to show identification
I got no paper to show you what I am
You'll have to take me just the way you find me
What's gone is gone and I do not give a damn
Empty stomach (empty head)
I got empty heart and empty bed
I don't remember
I don't remember

I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything at all
I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything
- anything at all

Strange is your language and I have no decoder
Why don't you make your intention clear
With eyes to the sun and your mouth to the soda
Saying "tell me the truth, you got nothing to fear"
Stop staring at me like a bird of prey
I'm all mixed up, I got nothing to say
I don't remember
Oh, I don't remember

I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything at all
I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything
- anything at all

I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything at all
I don't remember, I don't recall
I got no memory of anything
- absolutely anything at all
I don't remember


Family Snapshot

The streets are lined with camera crews
Everywhere he goes is news
Today is different
Today is not the same
Today I make the action
Take snapshot into the light
Snapshot into the light
I'm shooting into the light

Four miles down the cavalcade moves on
Driving into the sun
If I worked it out right
They won't see me or the gun

Two miles to go, they're clearing the road
And the cheering has really begun
I've got my radio
I can hear what's going on

I've been waiting for this
I have been waiting for this
All you people in TV land -
I will wake up your empty shells
Peak-time viewing blown in a flash
As I burn into your memory cells
'Cos I, I'm alive

They're coming round the corner with the bikers at the front
I'm wiping the sweat from my eyes
It's a matter of time
A matter of will
And the governor's car is not far behind
He's not the one I've got in mind
'Cos there he is - the man of the hour
Standing in the limousine

"I don't really hate you
I don't care what you do
We were made for each other
-Me and you
I want to be somebody
-You were like that too
If you don't get given you learn to take
And I will take you"

Holding my breath
Release the catch
And I let the bullet fly -

All turned quiet - I have been here before
A lonely boy hiding behind the front door
Friends have all gone home
There's my toy gun on the floor
Come back mum and dad
You're growing apart
You know that I'm growing up sad
I need some attention
- I shoot into the light


And Through The Wire

And through the wire I hear your voice
And through the wire I touch the power
And through the wire I see your face
It's through the wire

Friday night, you're staying at home I want you
I'm ticking and clicking a metronome I want you
Prowling the waterhole, I wait for the kill I want you
Pressures building - overspill I want you

And through the wire I hear your voice
And through the wire I touch the power
And through the wire I see your face
It's through the wire

Watchmaker steadies his delicate hand I want you
For barbecue parties on blood red sands I want you
Caught in the struggle tight on the rod I want you
Bring out the devil bring out the god I want you

And through the wire You are secure
And through the wire We can talk
And through the wire We can walk
It's through the wire

Driving round the city rings
Staring at the shape of things
I talk in pictures not in words
Overloaded with everything we said
Be careful where you tread
Watch the wire

And through the wire You are secure
And through the wire We can talk
And through the wire We will walk

And through the wire We're clinging like leeches
And through the wire We push our tailor made speeches
And through the wire And through the wire
And through the wire We get so strange across the border
We get so strange across the border
We get so strange across the border
We get so strange across the border
We get so strange..........


Games Without Frontiers

Jeux sans frontières
Jeux sans frontières
Jeux sans frontières
Jeux sans frontières

Hans plays with Lotte
Lotte plays with Jane
Jane plays with Willi
Willi is happy again
Suki plays with Leo
Sacha plays with Britt
Adolf builds a bonfire
Enrico plays with it

Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we're kissing baboons in the jungle
It's a knockout

If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers
War without tears
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers
War without tears
Games without frontiers
War without tears

Jeux sans frontières
Jeux sans frontières
Jeux sans frontières

Andre has a red flag
Chiang Ching's is blue
They all have hills to fly them on
Except for Lin Tai Yu
Dressing up in costumes
Playing silly games
Hiding out in tree tops
Shouting out rude names

Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we piss on the goons in the jungle
It's a knockout

If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers
War without tears
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers
War without tears
Games without frontiers
War without tears

Not One Of Us

It's only water
In a stranger's tear
Looks are deceptive
But distinctions are clear
A foreign body
And a foreign mind
Never welcome
In the land of the blind
You may look like we do
Talk like we do
But you know how it is

You're not one of us
Not one of us
No you're not one of us
Not one of us
Not one of us
No you're not one of us

There's safety in numbers
When you learn to divide
How can we be in
If there is no outside
All shades of opinion
Feed an open mind
But your values are twisted
Let us help you unwind
You may look like we do
Talk like we do
But you know how it is

It's only water, It's only water
It's only water, It's only water
In a stranger's tear,
You may look like we do
Talk like we do
But you know how it is

You're not one of us
Not one of us
No, you're not one of us
You're not one of us
Not one of us
No you're not one of us

He's not one of us
He's not one of us
No, no, no, no, no, no, no


Lead A Normal Life

It's nice here with a view of the trees
Eating with a spoon?
They don't give you knives?
'Spect you watch those trees
Blowing in the breeze
We want to see you lead a normal life


Biko

September '77
Port Elizabeth weather fine
It was business as usual
In Police Room 619
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
- The man is dead
The man is dead

When I try to sleep at night
I can only dream in red
The outside world is black and white
With only one colour dead
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja,
- The man is dead
The man is dead

You can blow out a candle
But you can't blow out a fire
Once the flame begins to catch
The wind will blow it higher
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
- The man is dead
- The man is dead

And the eyes of the world are watching now
Watching now
