EXILE

Exile is Gary's 15th. studio album

The album is pretty hard to describe, more electro than his previous work; but with some synth-pop elements, gothic and even coldwaves. The album starts with Dominion Day a pretty dark and catchy sons, with Numan's conventional vocals and some dark-angel-ghost synth sequences.

Dominion Day
(Single from 'Exile' album, 1997)

In my darkness
I hear Jesus crying
In my darkness
I see children savage and blind
In my darkness
I see dead men kneel before the cross
In my darkness
I hear the voice of evil

Disciples, dark angels
This is dominion day
'My demons, come to me
This is dominion day'

In his darkness
I can feel the storm come
In his darkness
Holy water burns my soul
In his darkness
A grave waits for you at heaven's gate
In his darkness
I hear screams that hide the voice of God

'Come children of Eden
Pray to me on dominion day'
'Pray for your salvation
Sanctuary on dominion day'
My soul save me

In his mercy
He will bring the disease
In his mercy
He will burn the oceans
In his mercy
He will tear the sky down
In his mercy
He will make pain eternal

'Your nightmare is breathing
This is dominion day'
Welcome to your saviour
This is dominion day
'This is my new kingdom
This is dominion day'
'Creation bleeds for me
This is dominion day'


Prophesy
('Exile' album, 1997)

We are deceived
Valhalla is falling
We are betrayed
We are lost and forsaken
He's sold the world
Sold us all to the hunger
The body of Christ
Is as black as his soul

The word of the Lord
Is the lie of your father
This mortal sin
Is a voice of shame
Look at the storm
Like a dying apostle
Cruel and divine
Like the ghost of man

And now you realise
I am the truth

Worship the dead
The damned and misled
Tortured and bled
Like the voices of reason
Sacred and pure
Sanctified obsession
Holy and cured
Like a doorway to heaven

Sisterhood cried
Innocence lied
Purity died
With the angels of passion
Blessed are they
Who pay homage to rumour
I've seen the light
Shine on the grave of man

And now you realise
I am the truth

And I believed
Amen


Dead Heaven
('Exile' album, 1997)

Thought I was asleep
Lost to dreams
I was dying in a big machine
Didn't think the voice that called me
Could be real

Thought I woke up
Lost my faith
I was staring at the face of rage
Didn't think I'd see the demon in 'His' heart

Thought I saw blood
Turn to wine
A vision from the Angel Wars
Didn't think I'd find the saviour in the dark

Thought I saw a light
Tear the storm
Showing me hte way to God
Didn't know that heaven died and went to hell

Blessed is dead heaven
Blessed are shadows and pain
Blessed is dead heaven
Blessed is death in 'His' name

Thought I saw rain
Black and cold
Falling on a child's grave
Thought I saw an angel laugh and piss on it

Thought I saw a dance
Strange and cruel
Swaying to the screams of men
Thought I saw the Lord's disciples laugh at that

Thought I saw love
Sacrificed
Mary under three wise men
Thought I saw the virgin look at me and cry

Thought I saw a cross
And Jesus dead
Burning in the midnight sky
Thought I saw God dancing in the flames

Glory is dead heaven
Glory are shadows and pain
Glory is dead heaven
Glory is death in 'His' name

'Do you confess?'
'Cleanse your sin'
'Do you believe in the word of God?'

Welcome to dead heaven
Welcome to shadows and pain
Welcome to dead heaven
Welcome to death in 'His' name


Dark
('Exile' album, 1997)

I've been waiting here
Waiting for faith
And the word to fall
Now the darkness comes
And I'll pray for
The end of it all

Don't let the dark into me
We killed the angels that warned us of you
Don't let the dark into me
We raised the tower of Babel for you
Don't let the dark into me
We let the children build temples for you
Don't let the dark into me
Don't let the vengence of heaven be you

So pray to me, I'm the Lord's new disease
Look down into the face of God
Bow down and cry, I'm the Black Messiah
The one true divinity
Kneel before my altar and drink the wine of slaughter
Who said I'd save anyone?
So bleed for me, I need hostility
To lead the faithful and the blind

Don't let the light shine on me
I am the poison that feeds life to you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the demon that waits inside you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the ghost that reminds death of you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the darkness that crawls into you


Innocence Bleeding
('Exile' album, 1997)

Do you believe in heaven?
That man's soul is eternal?
Our prayers are always answered?
That miracles can happen?

Save me

But don't you wonder?
And don't you think it's strange?
The sacrifice of children?
Innocence bleeding

Do you believe in heaven?
The Holy Ghost and Jesus?
In paradise and angels?
That God is all forgiving?

Save me

Reward the faithful?
He lies to you and deceives
A dark salvation comes
Innocence bleeding

Too dark to see pictures of Heaven
Too dark to find the Garden of Eden
Blinded by faith and stories of wonder
Divine mercy? Mercy lies bleeding


The Angel Wars
('Exile' album, 1997)

I won't pray here
Or bow my head
I won't praise your name
I won't kneel down

I won't pray to you
On this side of sane (Oh Lord)
I won't pray to you
On this side of hell (Father)
I won't pray to you
On this side of heaven again

I don't need faith
Forgiveness of sin
I don't need saving
I don't need lies

I don't believe
In the angel wars (Oh Lord)
I don't believe
In the virgin birth (Father)
I don't believe
In the cross on the hill (Jesus)
I don't believe
In the kindness of God to man

I'll drive a stake
Through the black of your heart (Oh Lord)
I'll pull down your temples
And burn every word (Father)
I'll kill all the angels
That show me 'The Light' (Jesus)
I'll drift into darkness
And tear out the soul of God


Absolution
(1995 single, also on 1997 album 'Exile')

I would swim across oceans
Just to talk with you
I would climb a tall mountain
Just to look at you
I'd give my soul to the devil
If you asked me to
I would walk out of heaven
Just to be with you

This is absolute
This is absolution

I would be your disciple
And I'd worship you
Burn the prophets of reason
Light the sky for you
Kill the children of Eden
If you want me to
Close the dead eyes of God
If they offended you

This is absolute
This is absolution...


An Alien Cure
(1997, "Exile" Album)

So I wandered like Jesus
Like an alien cure
Searching for my disciples
Dispossessed and alone

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To your corruption

I took a virgin like Mary
And said, 'I give you the cure'
I confessed to desire
And watched the world come undone

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To your obsession

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To heaven
Your heaven

So I moved like a rumour
Like a glorious lie
And I walked into heaven
Into dead paradise


Exile
('Exile' album, 1997)

I heard it in my sleep
A voice more dead than old
I thought I'd known the fear
But then it touched my soul and said:

'You will pray for me
Bow your head to me'

It came for me at night
And took me dream by dream
To where everything is dark
And no-one hears you scream
Took everything I loved
And turned love into pain
It said, 'I'm the prophesy
And I'll make you believe in me'

'Sacrifice for me
Be humility'

It said:
'I'll make everyone pay'
'I'll make everyone pay'
Some things you can't forget
'I'll make everyone pay'
Some things you can't forgive
'I'll make everyone pay'

'And so it comes to this
Death or eternity?
Or would you like to pay
For all humanity?
Do you believe in faith?
Then choose, heaven or hell or me?
A shadow on the sane
The final trachery of God'

'You will kneel for me
Lose your eyes for me'

It said:
'I'll make everyone pay'
'I'll make everyone pay'
Some things you can't forget
'I'll make everyone pay'
Some things you can't forgive
'I'll make everyone pay'


Down In The Park
(Single from 'Replicas' album, 1979)

Down in the park
Where the machmen
Meet the machines
And play 'Kill by numbers'
Down in the park
Wit a friend called 'Five'

I was in a car crash
Or was it the war
But I've never been
Quite the same
Little white lies
Like 'I was there'

Come to 'Zom Zoms'
A place to eat
Like it was built
In one day
You can watch the humans
Trying to run

Oh look
There's a rape machine
I'd go outside
If he'd look the other way
You wouldn't believe
The things they do

Down in the park
Where the chant is
'Death, death, death'
Until the sun cries morning
Down in the park
With friends of mine

We are not lovers
We are not romantics
'We are here to serve you'
A different face
But the words never change
