I'll get down on my knees
I'll do anything I can
I'll even walk upon water
I'll burn the soul of man 

I'm so sick with need
I'm so sick with pain
I'll lay before the cross and pray
I'll bleed like holy rain 

I've done nothing to you 

I'll rip the skin from God's face
I'll say I'm searching for the truth
I'll steal the light from heaven's gate
If it can guide me to you 

I'll give life to obsession
I'll give life to disease
I'll give you one last sin or cure
And then I'll do as I please 

I've got something for you

A Prayer For The Unborn

So, I prayed
But you weren't listening
Making miracles? 

So, I begged
But you were far away
Saving souls perhaps? 

So, I screamed
But she was very small
And you have worlds to mend 

So, she died
And you were glorious
But you were somewhere else 

If you are my Shepherd
Then I'm lost and no-one can find me
If you are my Saviour
Then I'm dead and no-one can help me
If you are my Glory
Then I'm sick and no-one can cure me
If you light my darkness
Then I'm blind and no-one can see me 

If you are my Father
Then love lies abandoned and bleeding
If you are my comfort
Then nightmares are real and deceiving
If you are my answer
Then I must have asked the wrong question
I'd spit on your heaven
If I could find one to believe in 

('The Pleasure Principle' album, 1979) 

And M.E. I eat dust
We're all so run down
I'd call it my death
But I'll only fade away
And I hate to fade alone
Now there's only M.E. 

We were so sure
We were so wrong
Now it's over
But there's no one left to see
And there's no one left to die
There's only M.E. 

Why should I care?
Why should I try?
Oh no. Oh no.
I turn off the pain
Like I turned off you all
Now there's only M.E.

This Wreckage

('Telekon' album, 1980) 

And what if God's dead
We must have done something wrong
This dark facade ends
We're independent from someone 

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you, meet you

We write suggestions
Suggesting fading to silence
And that must please you
My mirrors tarnished with 'no help' 

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you meet you

I leave you 

Turn out these eyes
Wipe off my face
Erase me
Replay 'The end'
It's all just show
Erase you
I need to I need to I need to

Are 'Friends' Electric?
(1979 single, from "Replicas" album) 

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette 

Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing
In a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought
I remembered you 

So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you 

So I open the door
It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
'Please sit down'
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed 

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love 

So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me
