about

Four songs that address
a telephone haunting (lucien’s immoral compass),
a selfish perception of the death of a friend (newstyle),
an obsession with a fading starlet (Split Personfantasy)
and an unhealthy attraction to the undead (The Graveyard).

Track Name: luciens immoral compass
Host:
You make my telephone ring
When it’s not plugged in
You make my telephone ring
When it’s not plugged in
So, what is it you need?
Don’t you want me to leave?
Stop haunting me!
This house is still your home
So, come on! Let me go!

Ghost:
But I’ll be your immoral compass
Fear me now! Immoral compass
I’ll be your immoral compass
Fear me now! Immoral compass
And you’re going nowhere
You’re going nowhere

Host:
I can feel you in my room
But I’ve never seen you
I can feel you in my room
When I can’t move
I’m a captive in your lair
My life dressed up in fear
Stop haunting me!
This house is still your home
So, come on! Let me go!
Yeah, come on! Let me go!

Ghost:
But I’ll be your immoral compass
Fear me now! Immoral compass
I’ll be your immoral compass
Fear me now! Immoral compass
And you’re going nowhere
You’re going nowhere
Track Name: newstyle
Old friend died the other day
Didn’t see that one coming my way
Thought he’d be round, least for a while
Digging in tends to be our style these days
Old friend gave up in the end
Laid bare and now he can’t amend his soul
Guess the mantle passed to me
Hard act to follow legacy

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too

Here I stand a gallant man
My doubting confidence, no guiding hand
I’m branching out - might leave the house
There a world outside my friend knew all about
Old friend wanted to be free
The City glints and winks and beckons me
Doldrums lift, least for a while
Maybe this is my newstyle

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too

Imagined our ascent
And you would be there
The death of innocence
And you would be there too
A fine belligerence
And you would be there
When life stopped making sense
Then you would be there too
Track Name: Split Personfantasy
If there were two of you, which one would win?
The consummate star or the palace of sin?
Without two, you could go far
The problem my dear is, there already are.

Then later on, after the show
Once all your people come and go
Do your thoughts then turn to me?
Mixed doubt and curiosity
And then my own thoughts start to roam
Round your request to drive you home
A moment lingers pleasantly

Will I still be there?
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now
Will I still be there?
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now

Much later on, I slam the door
Your body doubled on the floor
Curt disappointment reigns again
Why must you give yourself to pain?
And then my own mind starts to roam
A nightly tease to get you home
Sweet taste of freedom beckons me

I’ll never be there
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now
In the morning sun now
Always alone there
In the morning sun now
Blinding morning sun now
Pull the curtains shut now

If there were two of you, which one would win?
The consummate star or the palace of sin?
Without two, you could go far
The problem my dear is, there already are

In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
In the morning sun, will I still be there?
Track Name: The Graveyard
The Graveyard

There’s times the graveyard
Beckons me
In autumn, half dead souls
Intervene rudely
Down upon my
Nightly dreams

It’s a place that no-one knows you’ve been to
Knows you’ve been to
But here they’ll know you
Soon, all the demons will know you
And the ghosts they’ll know you
And the vampires know you
So, let all the undead know you!

Nestled there
Behind the church
So much tranquillity,
Buried in the dirt
Always drawn there
By something obscene

It’s a place that no-one knows you’ve been to
Knows you’ve been to
But here they’ll know you
Soon, all the demons will know you
And the ghosts they’ll know you
And the vampires know you
So, let all the undead know you!

What better place
To go and feast?
What better place
To find your inner beast?
I cannot dwell there
But every Halloween

It’s a place that no-one knows you’ve been to
Knows you’ve been to
But here they’ll know you
Yeah, all the demons will know you
And the ghosts they’ll know you
And the vampires know you
So, let all the undead know you!

All the undead, will know you
All the undead, will know you
All the undead, will know you
All the undead, will know you………
