Track Name: Peepshow!
"THE DAYS OF THE PEEPSHOW ARE OVER"
Track Name: Janus Head
JANUS HEAD (Andi Sex Gang)

Won't someone help me briar a rosie, hedgehog and roast beef riding the pony. Coughing casinic empty and lonely when you were virgin, when you were holy. I'm not afraid and I'm not a liar, said the boy with the torch at the funeral pyre. All the King's maids and all the King's men, tied them together for Suzie again. Higher. Old Uncle Tony, poor little sailor, shimmy the ladder, piss on the whaler. Blow the old giants who forsook their saviour, ginny a rum boat with soldier and sailor. All the King's maids and all the King's men, tied them together for Suzie again. Higher. Stainless steel water old alabaster, but love on the stairs is all that I'm after. The drum beat died when Allah cried, I'll give you my breath when it's all I have left. A bushel of coins the wretches prize, I'll give you my death when it's all I have left. Higher, higher. Ginny a rum boat soldier and sailor.
Track Name: Tomb of Apollo
TOMB OF APOLLO (Andi Sex Gang)

Blow the trumpet and climb every mountain, tongues fell silent so long ago. Heed the reefs and the murmuring fathers, khaki suits and visions of gold. Hey ho, this is more than we dreamed of, here we go. Hey ho, in your old guise they follow. Spare the wolf in the tomb of Apollo, always brave and always young. Many fell in the silence that followed, devils touched their truthful tongues. Hey ho, all is lost in your sorrow, here we go. Hey ho, in the birthplace of heroes they go. Hey ho, this is more than Apollo, here we go. Hey ho, all is lost in the sorrow, hey ho touch and follow the halo, here we go. Hey ho, in the old guise they follow, hey ho touch the tomb of Apollo.
Track Name: Liberty Blue
LIBERTY BLUE (Words Andi Sex Gang/Music Andi Sex Gang, Mick Rossi)

"This individual's grief for the ghosts of the old Hellenes, recorded simply".

Sea child and daydream crowned the old man, he climbed all the time the dust without crying. Rebellious cries never lie and I don't know why they burn so brightly. Fly child she's crying, cold and grey, merchant mentality. Sudden body it burns from inside, it burns. Devil come gypsy vocation they found me, they violate all keepsake. But I can't desert you, you sons of sorrow, in a shipwrecked soul, the daydream found me.

"In the decline of a culture and the ghost of all things Greek, the daydream found me".
Track Name: Phase Out The Boy
PHASE OUT THE BOY (Andi Sex Gang)

Silence surged the plunging hooves, Motion Master whip your gig and say this land is changed forever. Phase out the boy today, gravity stone the brain and the bone. Phase out the boy today. Now the weeds and water have come to slaughter the lonely feast before I die. Gravity stone the brain and the bone, phase out the boy today.
Track Name: Bathsheba
BATHSHEBA (Andi Sex Gang)

Your conversation makes me grin like the silent whistler in the sailors' song, the hardest man that's ever been, he'll take you home where you'll find no home, oh crazy you.
King of all, but all alone, freedom of the bell I give to you,
Feed the rose speak no lie, when your tongue is raw and your eyes are wild, oh crazy you.
Bathsheba Baby they're reigning without you, but I just thought that maybe the sun is about you.
Said the General to the whore, "Oh these holy wars are worth fighting for" settle down, settle in and they'll take you home where you'll find no home, oh crazy you, oh crazy you.
Track Name: Mercy
MERCY (Andi Sex Gang)

I have always wanted to know, all is love and yearning. Silent child spoke long ago, charming moon he told me. Coughed a thought without a sound, in the heart of Asia. Called it faith then hit the ground, all in all, it's burning. Sick inside these weary eyes, Mother of God have mercy. Is it love or is it kill? Will it come please tell me. Honey words for the souls that are cursed, severed tongues cry guilty. Fools and shapes of all things to come, curtsy hearts have mercy. Jackals grabbed my cut off hands, severed tongues cried guilty.
Track Name: Python Dance
PYTHON DANCE (Andi Sex Gang)

In the reign of logic there lies the hunger. Rudely stamped my shadow and I ordered my thoughts to sleep all night, the dog's howl grows a mother's grief to the slaughter of German logic. A suicide where no-one dies. Python dance and love on the phone, stripey toothpaste for the plastic home, I was pixie led and honour bound. The Janus face is lost in space. Honest blue eyes oh passerby, with sightless steps to the clinging tree, in another place, another face. Oh passerby who cares for me? Wandering hands that blow in the wind, but tucked in my belt they never felt. Oh passer by who'll pray for me? My hair and the gun are on the run. Serve the faithful, feed the fish, learn to talk to your satellite dish. Oh passerby who cares for me? Christ forgotten in a pawn shop, beneath the wedding bed, above the grave, in a bone cage for the soul.
Track Name: Saracens And Harlequins
SARACENS AND HARLEQUINS (Andi Sex Gang)

Time ordered age to destroy all that's beautiful, in the silence and the scream. The lightman fiddled to the dance of Saint Vitus, choke you like a weed. Oh I've got my pride and my spirit of adventure and you've got your greed. The golden boy said shut it Eliza, while I borrow your dreams. Living in hell, someone to pay. Swallow her every day, swallow her every way. Exhausted and nothing to say, lost in a crowded place. Holy, I thought about you, where Saracens and harlequins play. Swallow her every day. I sold the butchers born again culture, so come out of your shell. All eyes are upon us, will Mars rule the hour? I search for such a face. Living in hell, someone to pay. Swallow her every day, swallow her every way. Lost in a crowded place, I thought that I'd something to say. Holy I thought about you, where Saracens and harlequins play. Swallow her every day. If suspicion breeds confidence, hey, I'll give you my confidence, why don't you swallow her every day?
Track Name: Land Of Ghosts
LAND OF GHOSTS (Andi Sex Gang)

The naked masters of our soul don't always have their way. Cast your pearls before the swine, will you have to pray? Waste and praise is the blood of fame, waiting for the day. When foul words shall paint my brow, but will I have to pray? All the lions and the tigers too, even fools will have their say. Will they have to pray? Three faces and a kissing king, wise girls are forced to stay. The Pope from Mars is stealing cars, but will he have to pray. All the lions and the tigers too, even fools will have their day. But will they have to pray? Everybody has your voice, lost along the way.
Track Name: Death And The Soldier
DEATH AND THE SOLDIER (Andi Sex Gang)

Reach for the silver in the heart of the sun, a mask amongst many and a master to none. A bone faced messiah who lives by the gun, Death and the soldier come. I'm out of the chaos, but still on the run, so hold and embrace me 'til the new Kingdom comes. Shoot Coca-Cola it's not what it seems, sweet tastes are better than none. Walk away, walk away, Death and the soldier come. Clouds grow wild, keeps me pale, Death and the soldier come. Clumsy force, the felon's friend, no illusion no talk without end. Killing time, strange to pain, Death and the soldier come. Screams of delight always burst in my dreams, come in a stranger that tongues what it steals. Earthbound and cold is not what it seems, burning the boys who are down on their knees. Death and the soldier come. Walk away, walk away, Death and the soldier come. Clouds grow wild, keeps me pale, Death and the soldier come. World on fire flame to kill, no illusion controlling my will. Killing time strange to pain, Death and the soldier come.
Track Name: Harpers And Queens
HARPERS AND QUEENS (Andi Sex Gang)

One life sparks and hums from the fire for Iron John and the Babylon liar. He's oh so strong, he is on soap opera telly where the rich all have bellies. In a dream you're the King Kong love machine, where your stolen smile lasts awhile, so long Iron John. I was lost in the holy dance when the devils came all around me at once, they hummed and they spin me into their trance. Now I'm doing it in doorways with mild-mannered manicurists, Oh Harpers and Queens where have you been? Holy Joe I had nowhere to go. They speared me and skewered me and fattened me up. They smilingly offer me drink from their cup and the marks on my body that all numbered up. Now I'm doing it in doorways with mild mannered manicurists, Oh Harpers and Queens where have you been? And the trombone cried, come out and dance with me, for passion cannot kill with eyes that cannot see. The folly and the pain, once again.
Track Name: Imaginary Friends
IMAGINARY FRIENDS (Andi Sex Gang)

When I was small I wanted to be as tall as my imaginary friends. They had lip and would often quip with me when I was alone with them. All alone with my imaginary friends and they would dance and play all day. Icons and cocktails are under the sun and justice is honoured by everyone. Break a window, see the light of day, probing fingers that come my way. All alone with my imaginary friends and they would dance and play all day. He's alright, so won't you stay out of sight? When I was small I would be as tall as my imaginary friends. They would say "Feeling happy today?" Well Jack's alright and he'll stay that way. All alone with my imaginary friends and they would dance and play all day. He's alright, won't you stay out of sight?
