about

Live on stage at the Prince Albert, Brighton, April 1997

lyrics

Well I’m looking up, looking down and around
We scoured the walls, we scoured the ground
Collecting threads that once had covered me
I forged, to keep me warm, a holy shroud of history
From fibres and DNA

Well this now is the web that’s so hard to define
The centre was a bed, where you and I would hide - yeah!

Now the trip is set to wire, hooked up back into the board,
the floor we left a mesh, of tautened wires and cords

No more...
And I never understood what it was to be there [or ‘meant to be here’]
I never understood what it was to be there
I never understood what it was to be there
I was just a leech…
Now when I see the time, I must turn around and I don’t mind, ohhh...

Yeah!!!!!!!!
ssssssshhh!
Who’ll give me a life for a life...?

Now I won’t say a word until I know it’s the right word
And I have to listen hard, for the silence in my heart to be heard

And if I understood what it was to be here
If I understood what it was to be here
If I understood what it was to be here
Comin’ to the ground, comin’ to the word
I’ll hear
