The Mission

Island in a Stream

A silver moon and a singing breeze
I'm walking out under the stars
I light a cigarette and watch the smoke
As it chases my dreams away
 
I turn my gaze out to the sea
And watch as the waves come tumbling in
Off in the distance, an angel cries
As the ship of the line comes into bay
 
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
 
Building castles and flying flags
And my lips begin to sting
I feel the sand beneath my feet
And my Halloween heart begins to sing
 
The flashing light warns of danger here
But the ship comes on sailing in
I run for shore and a way to hide
I need a time and a place to think
 
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
 
I look around to find a friend for life
Seeking refuge in your arms
Splinters of ice, thin, sharp and cold
Pierce my freezing skin
 
By the skill of your embrace
You show me a grave new world
And against the tide and dashed on the rocks
The ship of the line comes on in
 
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
 
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
I'm just an island in a stream
I'm all at sea, come rescue me
 

Love Me to Death

Let me come inside your ivory tower
Let me come inside your hallowed walls
God, it's heaven in here
Fix me with your hand of praise
Fix me with your touch of precious thrills
Your fingers dance across my skin
Reaching out for the pride of man
 
Hand in hand, flesh in flesh
We're walking through the fire of love
Breath by breath, and flame by flame
We burn till the sun rises and shines hot
Love comes gushing, love runs free
My love comes all over you
My love comes for you
 
Love me to death, my flower
Run barefoot through my hair
Naked on my lips
Love me to death, my precious
Smother me with kisses
Drown me in your waves of falling sweetness
 
Hold me dear, bury me deep
Bless me with your word of savage honour
We love more by fate than design
So give me your hand and I'll gladly give you my life
A flower, that sways in the breeze
You must be stronger than the winds that blow you away
Blow you away
 
Love me to death, my precious
Run barefoot through my hair
Dance wild on my lips
Love me to death, my flower
Lay me down on your bed of petals
Cover me with your honey, my blossom
 
Love me to death
Love me to death
Love me to death, my flower
Love me to death, my treasure
Run barefoot through my hair
Dance wild on my heart
Love me to death, my precious
Love me to death, my love
Tarnish, taint and punish me softly
Softly love me to death
Love me to death
 

And the Dance Goes On

It's no shot in the dark
And no trick of the lights
You tease me, adore me
Talking dirty, sitting pretty
Lay me down and anoint my wounds
Dust up, bust up, let's get down to the nitty-gritty
 
You call on favours promised and sworn
Changing names and changing places
The blade digs deep
And the cut begins to sting
There's more to this than reason
Or the old familiar rhythm and rhyme
Take me shake me lead me
To the floor and hey let's swing
 
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on and on and on
 
We're going up in flames
We're burning up in a blaze of glory
Don't put fire into the hands
Of the weak and faint, the weak and frail
Tripping the light fantastic
Let's celebrate our great escape
For goodness sake, it's all the same
The sinner and saint, heaven and hell
 
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on and on and on
 
We're going up in flames
We're burning up in a blaze of glory
Don't put fire into the hands
Of the weak and faint, the weak and frail
Tripping the light fantastic
Let's celebrate our great escape
For goodness sake, it's all the same
The sinner and saint, heaven and hell
 
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on and on and on
 

Dance on Glass

Run you ragged
Torn and jagged
Sharp tongued, ripped and ragged
Couldn't find the party line
Gee whiz, it's happy time
Mirror, mirror, reflects me hazy
The heat's on, I'm running round crazy
Here's the road, didn't miss a trick
While you trash the punch and kick
I'll kiss the lips that sealed your fate
I'll bring you flowers and place them on your grave
 
Dreaming of colours, swamped in dust
Sweet dreams all covered in rust
Looking at heaven, gladdest ghosts seen
Turn to kill this crazy dream
You are revered for your work with ink and mirrors
You are renowned for bringing me steel and power
 
So dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance, dance on glass
Dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance
Dance on glass
 
Shadow boxing, mild and meek
Send me flowers, tongue in cheek
Medicine man cast a spell
Head spins round, kiss and tell
 
So dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance, dance on glass
Dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance
Dance on glass
 
Cheeks on fire, dance on glass
A touch of magic, a hint of class
Dress in leather, play in the dark
Pain and torture leave their mark
Take no prisoners, smash the light
Lunatic fringe, kiss and bite
Wild promise, cheeks are red
Battle cry, and then it's off to bed
You've taken my heart and ripped it from my sleeve
Hold it in your hands
Grip your fingers and it starts to bleed
 
So dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance, dance on glass
Dance, dance, dance on
Dance, dance, dance
Dance on glass
 
You shudder at a touch
 

Sacrilege

Tarot strewn across the floor
Fate creeps under the creaking door
Say farewell to the salad days
Arms held out for the needle haze
Scars, scars start to show
But don't, don't despair for the shame I know
 
Bible for the love and damned
Religion for the pagan man
Faith and prayer for the chosen few
Mystic shades of violent hue
Blood, blood on my cheeks
And the taste
The taste of ash curls across my tongue
 
Sacrilege, burning on the funeral pyre
Sacrilege, toss and turn on the cross to burn
 
Rape and pillage the sacred word
Heart of darkness crowned and stirred
Rite of passage reckless whirl
Fruit forbidden ritual swirl
And you, what can you do?
And I, I say there's nothing you can do to stop this
 
Sacrilege, burning on the funeral pyre
Sacrilege, toss and turn on the cross to burn
 
Tarot strewn across the floor
Fate creeps under the creaking door
Say farewell to the salad days
Arms held out for the needle haze
Scars, scars start to show
But don't, don't despair for the shame I know
 
Sacrilege, burning on the funeral pyre
Sacrilege, toss and turn on the cross to burn
 

Blood Brother

I gave you flowers and you gave me faith
We are minds and hearts that move as one
Chameleon, warrior, gypsy and brave
Turn our eyes to the heart of the rising sun
 
You and me, we are blood brothers
You and me, we are blood brothers
Blood brother, lay down your life for me
Lay down your love for me
 
Kiss by kiss, touch by touch
We talk of clouds that walked
You took my hand and walked me through the rain
An act of love, mission and tender mercy
We stood tall and proud together we can't get hurt again
 
You and me, we are blood brothers
You and me, we are blood brothers
Blood brother, lay down your life for me
Lay down your love for me
 
We pull your punch and we gave them hell
The feelings dry and the chains will tell
Manors and sand and seas and land and with the winds to come
And we rose again to win the war to rule and reign and harvest soil
Hands held high, stars in the sky and we kissed the ever faithful lome
Ask for it: your love
 
Father, you're a good man and honest man, a saint not heard
Mother, I wish I could tell you I love you
Sister, you're a goddess and I want you to take me to Heaven
Blood brother, you're a hand in my heart and your innocents lay battered and bleeding
 
You and me, we are blood brothers
You and me, we are blood brothers
Blood brother, lay down your life for me
Blood brother, lay down your love for me
 
God, I feel so strong but I just want to break down and cry
God, I feel so strong but I just want to break down and cry
God, I feel so strong but I just want to break down and cry
God, I feel so strong but I just want to break down and cry
 

Stay with Me

Books and covers and part time lovers
Spinning in rooms in cities of rust
I'm stranded, struck out on this line
There's smoke and fire and steel and wire
And glass and spire and dust
One to the floor at dawn with lips tied and drawn
Sleepless nights spent, with angels heaven sent
 
Stay with me, lay with me, lay down by my side
Stay with me, lay with me, take me deep inside
Lay with me, stay with me, lay with me
Stay, with me
Stay, with me
 
All of us lying there in the dreams
Speak of days and another place
I wander as the gypsy under a beckoning moon
Speak of time, and another face
They would in languid cry a fleeting furtive sigh
From the cradle to the grave love to desire and crave
 
Stay with me, lay with me, lay down by my side
Stay with me, lay with me, take me deep inside
Lay with me, stay with me, lay with me
Stay, with me
Stay, with me
 
I'll laugh for you, and I'll dance for you
But don't ask me to she'd any tears when I have to go
You are a joy and a pleasure to love and to hold
Your promises, are as pure as the driven snow
Passing shapes in the night the touch distraut and light
As you brightly shine, your love tonight is mine
 
Stay with me, lay with me, lay down by my side
Stay with me, lay with me, take me deep inside
Lay with me, stay with me, lay with me
Stay, with me
Stay, with me
 

Garden of Delight (Hereafter)

I see your dancing, laughing, naked
Sweet and pretty face
And the promise, burning brightly
In your crystal-shot eyes
Your savage, and violent flesh
The cut that bleeds, the kiss that stings
We're shooting up stars and desperate snows
That fall from shimmering skies, So
 
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
 
Revelation is laid, and reflects
On the windswept liquid mirror
Of this breathless world, this Happy Death
This elegance in charm
The treasured first fleeting touch of a gracious stranger
In-charmed me and entranced me
I know you can do me no harm, so
 
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
 
We're playing with fire, dancing in the flames
And we're covered in burns that may never heal
And angels may come, and angels may go
But it's heaven on earth when you
 
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
 

Bridges Burning

Snow blind, dog tired
Snow blind, and barb wired
Last chance in the jungle trance
And the fast step of the monkey dance craze
War paint, misty days and dizzy faint
Keeping the faith, spinning turning
Watch the flames
Of bridges burning!
 
Turning colors and shedding skin
Shining brightly, thick and thin
Mirror of God, legend and myth
The fatal charm of the treasure
Gift wrapped and heaven sent
 
So trapped on islands of intent
Avenging angel of the wild and yearning
Stoke the flames
Of bridges burning!
 
It burning me over!
Bridges burning!
 
Burning, drives me wild
Yearning for the small child
Blind men cry, but shed no tears
See no evil, speak in tongues
And hear you say, 'Lovers Leap'
Cos there's NO other way across waters deep!
Feel the fire and the fool is learning
To run from the flames
Of bridges burning!
