The Samurai in Autumn

It's not as easy as it was
Or as difficult as it could be
For the Samurai in autumn

It's not as easy as it was
Or as difficult as it could be
For the Samurai in autumn

 

The Sodom And Gomorrah Show

I lived a quiet life
A stranger to champagne
I never dared to venture out
To cities of the plain
I'd heard about their way of life
Took it with a pinch of salt
The freedom and the time to play
A life so easy
It intrigued me
When you called to say:

"Are you gonna go
To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?
It's got everything you need for your complete
Entertainment and instruction
Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,
Death and destruction

The Sodom and Gomorrah show
Is a once-in-a-lifetime production"

I think it's true to say
My life was changed that night
In the liberated
Atmosphere
All around me
Someone found me
Whispered in my ear

"Are you gonna go
To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?
It's got everything you need for your complete
Entertainment and instruction
Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,
Death and destruction
The Sodom and Gomorrah Show
Is a once-in-a-lifetime production"

Then we went on
After-hours
There was place down below
It was there I realised
The meaning of the show

You've got to love
To learn to live
Where angels fear to tread
I did it and I don't regret the day
Even now
I think of how
You turned to me to say

"Are you gonna go
To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?
It's got everything you need for your complete
Entertainment and instruction
Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,
Death and destruction
The Sodom and Gomorrah Show
Is a once-in-a-lifetime production"

 

The Sound of the Atom Splitting

I hate you
I hate you
Nothing will ever be the same
Oh really
Don't be silly
I told you it was all a game
Whenever i see you or your work
It makes me feel like spitting
What's that noise?
Oh that
We've been expecting it for ages
It's the sound of the atom splitting

He's a villain,
Him over there
With a stocking on his head
Look, there's another one
They call themselves pinheads
What's that noise over there?
Is it the corrogated iron they're hitting?
No, no, it's perfectly normal
It's just the sound of the atom splitting

Whose side are you on anyway?
Is that some kind of threat?
Well, i suppose it will have to do
As long as you don't make too much mess
And would the last person to leave
Once you all finish kissing -
Turn the video on to record
You never know what you're missing
Bread and circuses
And maybe later
The sound of the atom splitting

Quiet at the back, please!
No whistling
It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

I hate you
I hate you
Quiet at the back, please!
No whistling

It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

Oh really
Don't be silly
I told you it was all a game

It's the sound
What's that noise?
Quiet at the back, please!

 

The Survivors
(Aaah - Aaah)

Cross a windy bridge one winter night
Past Embankment Gardens enter warmth and light
Face the music (It's never easy)
Forget the chill
Face the future (It's never easy)
Find the will

If life is worth living, it's got to be done
One might be forgiven for thinking it's a life on the run
Many roads will cross through many lives
But somehow you survive

(Oooh, aaah)

Look around, picture what's in store
Is this the final edit, or is the subject now a bore?
Don't shrug your shoulders (It's always easy)
You can't ignore

That life is worth living, it's still worth a damn
One might be forgiven for thinking it's something of a sham
Many words may make it sound contrived
But somehow we're alive

The survivors - Our heads bowed
The survivors - At memorials for other faces in the crowd

Teachers and artists (It's never easy)
And Saturday girls
In suits or sequins (It's never easy)
Or twinsets-and-pearls

If life is worth living, (If life is worth living)
It's got to be run (It's got to be run)
As a means of giving, (As a means of giving)
Not as a race (race) to be won (not to be won)
Many roads will run through many lives
But somehow we'll arrive

(Oooh, aaah, aaah)

Many roads will run through many lives
But somewhere we'll survive

 

The Theatre

(Yeah)

(Yeah)
(Yeah)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)

(Yeah)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu)

(Yeah)
(Yeah)

It's another world here
The streets are gleaming
I was even dreaming
That they're paved with gold

Seventeen, at half past ten
All the crowds are surging past
An electric display

There's another world here
Below shop windows
Upon the pavement
Where you wave goodbye

Boys and girls
Come to roost
From Northern parts
And Scottish towns
Will we catch your eye?

While you pretend not to notice
All the years we've been here
We're the bums you step over
As you leave the Theatre
(Yeah)
(Yeah)

It's another world here
Somebody is singing (Yeah)
I was only wishing
For a bit of cash

From a patron of the arts
Or at least the phantom of the opera
Will I catch your eye?

While you pretend not to notice
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
All the years we've been here
We're the bums you step over
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
As you leave the Theatre
(Yeah)
(Yeah)

(Ha ha ha ha...)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)
(Everybody)

Pavarotti in the park
Then you walked back up the Strand
Did you catch my eye?

And then pretend not to notice
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
All the years we've been here
We're the bums you step over
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
As you leave the Theatre
(Yeah)
(Yeah)

In the end, you pretend
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
'Cause it's so much easier
We're the bums you step over
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
As you leave the Theatre (Yeah)
(Yeah)
(Yeah)
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu
Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)

We're the bums you step over
(Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu Tu ru tu tu tu tu)
As you leave the Theatre
(Yeah)
(Yeah)

(Ha ha ha ha ...)
(Ha ha ha ha ...)
(Ha ha ha ha ...)

 

The Way It Used To Be

I'm here, you're there
Come closer, tonight I'm lonely
Come here with me
I want it the way it used to be

What is left of love?
Tell me, who would even care?
So much time has passed
I'd still meet you anywhere
Water under bridge
Evening after day
What is left of love
Here that didn't drift away?

I can remember days of sun
We knew our lives had just begun
We could do anything, we're fearless when we're young
Under the moon, address unknown
I can remember nights in Rome
I thought that love would last, a promise set in stone

I'd survive with only memories
If I could change the way I feel
But I want more than only memories
A human touch to make them real

Another day, another dream
Over the bridge an empty scene
We'd spend the weekend lost in bed and float upstream
I don't know why we moved away
Lost in the here and now we strayed
Into a New York zone, our promise was betrayed

I was there, caught on Tenth Avenue
You elsewhere with Culver City blues
Then and there I knew that I'd lost you

What is left of love?
Tell me, who will even care?
So much time has passed
I'd still meet you anywhere
Water under bridge
Evening after day
What is left of love
Here that didn't drift away?

Don't give me all your love and pain
Don't sell me New York in the rain
Let's leave our promises behind
Rewind and try again

What remains in time that didn't fade away?
Sometimes I need to see
The way it used to be

 

This Must Be the Place I Waited Years To Leave

(Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody jump to attention...)

Each morning after Sunblest
Feel the benefit, mental arithmetic
I waited by the staffroom
In time for benediction
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there's confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave

To our voices nobody's listening
We shiver in the rain by the touchline
Then a coach ride to the station
"My lord, the carriage awaiteth!"
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there's confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave
This must be the place I waited years to leave
And how
How long?

I'm listening to the words I thought I'd never hear again
A litany of saints and other ordinary men
Kneeling on the parquet
Whatever has gone wrong?
The fear and feeling hopelessness
I don't want to belong

I dreamt I was back in uniform
And a candidate for examination
History, someone had blundered
And a voice rapped "knuckle under!"
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there's confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave
This must be the place I waited years to leave
And how
And how
How long?

(Trebuet nash narod odnogo)
[Our people demand only...]

 

This Used To Be the Future

I can remember when this was the future
Where it was gonna be at back then
Why don't we turn the whole bloody lot down
And make a new start all over again?

I can recall utopian thinking
Bold mission statements and tightening of belts
Demolition of familiar landmarks
Promises made and deals that were dealt

This used to be the future
Where it was at back then
Let's turn the whole bloody lot down
And start all over again

But that future was exciting
Science fiction made fact
Now all we have to look forward to
Is a sort of suicide pact

Was it the dear old future
That created the problems we face?
How do we deal with the fallout
Of the age we used to call space?

I can remember planning for leisure
Living in peace and freedom from fear
Science that promised to make us a new world
Religion and prejudice disappear

I can remember when this was the future
Where it was gonna be at back then
Now religion and nuclear energy have united
To threaten, oh God! Amen

This used to be the future
Where it was at back then
Now religion and nuclear energy have united
Oh God! Amen

Was it the dear old future
That created the problems we face?
How do we deal with the fallout
Of the age we used to call space?

This used to be the future
Where it was at back then
Let's turn the whole bloody lot down
And start all over again

Amen

 

Time on My Hands

Seventy, eighty, ninety, party
Seventy, eighty, ninety, party
Seventy, eighty, ninety, party
Seventy, eighty, ninety, party
It's very nice
But it's not what I'm used to
Time on my hands

 

Tonight is Forever

I may be wrong, I may be right
Money's short and time is tight
Don't even think about those bills
Don't pay the price, we never will
We're out again another night
I never have enough
It will be like this forever
If we fall in love

Tonight is forever, tell me now you don't disagree
Tonight is forever, open the door, you hold the key

I may be wrong, I may be right
So don't depend, I could lie
I haven't got a job to pay
But I could stay in bed all day
Then out again another night
I never have enough
It will be like this forever
If we fall in love

Tonight is forever, tell me now you don't disagree
Tonight is forever, open the door, you hold the key
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight is the first night

We don't need any more when we dance
I don't think of the future tonight

Tonight is forever, tell me now you don't disagree
Tonight is forever, open the door, you hold the key

I may be wrong, I may be right
But I don't give up any night
You could say conventional
And I could claim intentional
We're out again another night
We never have enough
It will be like this forever
When we fall in love

Tonight is forever, tell me now you don't disagree
Tonight is forever, open the door, you hold the key
Tonight is forever, tell me now you don't disagree
Tonight is forever, open the door, you hold the key

Tonight
