On The Wire

Cover 12" Front

Too fast to meet you
In colours of dust erupting
Thick around your feet, be careful
In the rubble in shrouds in waiting
Wall to wall to where you tread
Now the quick and the dead and the same old
Fates come calling cards away

By the hard way by desire
How do you think it came to pass you by?

Wake up frightened
Everything is what it seems if
You look deep enough tonight and

On the wire, on the wire, on the wire I will not fall
On the wire, on the wire, on the wire I will not fall
On the wire, on the wire, on the wire I will not fall
On the wire, on the wire, on the wire I will not fall
On the wire, on the wire, on the wire I will not ....
