Holy
Lead vocals: Adrian Belew
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

    Harmony always, when I look around me
    And your smile I see
    I can feel it surround me
    A miracle I find in your company
    One glance is all that I need
    What I was searching for I've found

    Can you believe it, I'm walking on water
    And I'm high off the ground
    Must be some mystique that weaves it
    I'd never have thought of this power I've found

    One glance is all that I need
    What I was searching for I've found it
    One look and now I believe
    I could just wrap my wholeself around it

      Holy, to me just one glance is holy
      One touch of your heart, to me that's holy
      Holy, to me just one glance is holy
      One touch of your heart, to me that's holy

    You've seen it walking on water
    Miracles like you've never seen before.
    You've seen it walking on water
    Miracles like you've never seen before.

      Holy, to me just one glance is holy
      One touch of your heart, to me that's holy
      Holy, to me just one glance is holy
      One touch of your heart, to me that's holy


Hostage
Lead vocals: Max Bacon
Additional vocals: Nikkie "B" Bentley
Background vocals: Mike Oldfield

    You can't speak, you can't sleep
    You daren't move, you're confused
    You never talk, you can't walk
    You can't feel, you're not real

    If I open my eyes, just far enough
    I can see what you're doing
    Go on tight to the end, it's tough enough
    When you're on the road to ruin. Yeah

      You're a hostage of the heart
      Twisted round the smallest finger
      Two burning eyes are tearing you apart
      Turn your soul into a cinder

    There's no rest, you're possessed
    You can't leave, you can't breathe
    The door slams, your head hangs
    You blank stare, you don't care

    If you open your eyes just far enough
    You can see the street lamps flicker
    Go on fight to the end it's tough enough
    When you know the end is bitter

      Chorus

    You're numbers up, you're eyes shut
    You're on the brink, you can't think
    You wanna run, but you're stunned
    You can't lie, you don't try

    If I open my eyes look hard enough
    I see the blue light flashing.
    Go on fight to the end, it's tough enough
    Riding on the road to ashes


Far Country
Lead vocals: Mark Williamson

    She takes the rain
    Turns it to sun
    And my soul she fills it
    Where once was a desert
    Rivers now run
    And my storm she stills it
    She takes the rain (and turns it to sun)

      She breathes the air
      from a far country
      This bond survives
      Like a tall, tall tree
      I close my eyes
      And how far I see... She takes the rain

    She gives me hope
    When there's nothing but pain
    I can't explain it
    Two different leaves
    But the branch is the same
    Forever let it be... She takes the rain

      She breathes the air
      from a far country
      This bond survives
      Like a tall, tall tree
      I close my eyes
      And how far I see... She takes the rain


Innocent
Lead & backing vocals: Anita Hegerland

    I know you'll never stay the same
    In time most of us lose it
    But I'm hoping just the same
    You'll shine and learn how to use it

      Speak to me like the very first speak
      You are magnificent when you're innocent
      Laugh to me like the very first laugh
      You are from heaven sent when you're innocent

    My hands hold you and you adore
    Blue eyes turn my direction
    Suprise in everything and your
    Body moves in perfection

      Smile to me like the very first smile
      You are magnificen when you're innocent
      Walk to me like the very first walk
      You are from heaven sent when you're innocent

    Sunrise here comes another day
    Cow jumps over the moon now
    Sometime you will look back and say
    Today I'll sing my own tune

      Sing to me like the very first sing
      You are magnificent when you're innocent
      Laugh to me like the very first laugh
      You are omipotent when you're innocent

      Speak to me like the very first speak
      You are magnificent when you're innocent
      Smile to me like the very first smile
      You are from heaven sent when you're innocent
      Sing to me like the very first sing
      You are magnificent when you're innocent


Runaway Son
Lead vocals: Chris Thompson
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

    Good sister won't you let me in
    I'm in need of some warmth and shelter
    It's a hard luck story don't know where to begin
    I've been riding on life's helter-skelter

    Save me, holy mother please save me
    I got a heart of gold

      And for your love I'd go hungry and thirsty
      I need a saviour and you're the one
      I throw myself into the arms of mercy
      There's still hope for the runaway son

    My good father he say to me
    Better come back to your senses
    There's an empty bottle lying on the floor
    And it's untermined your defences

    Save me, holy mother please save me
    I got a heart of gold

      And for your love I'd go hungry and thirsty
      I need a saviour and you're the one
      I throw myself into the arms of mercy
      There's still hope for the runaway son

    Good brother show me how to get home
    I've been walking in the backyard of Satan
    I'm so stubborn that I'll never give in
    But now my hearts cold and aching

    Save me, holy mother please save me
    I got a heart of gold

      And for your love I'd go hungry and thirsty
      I need a saviour and you're the one
      I throw myself into the arms of mercy
      There's still hope for the runaway son


See the Light
Lead vocals: Chris Thompson
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

    I been waiting at this frontier
    And it seems like a hundred years
    But I couldn't see past the gate
    I couldn't see past the hate
    Now I'm coming back to my senses
    I can see a light past the fences
    Standing at the borderline
    I've come to the end of the line

    Will-power, give me some to survive
    One more hour and I'm coming alive
    I can see the light

      And there's blue sky breaking
      Through the edge of the night
      I can see the light
      Oh, I can see the light

    The most precious thing I possess
    Is knowing the answers yes
    And soon my liberty
    Will be reality
    I've been given a second chance
    I could open my arms and dance
    Open that barricade
    No longer I'm living afraid

    Will-power, give me some to survive
    One more hour and I'm coming alive
    I can see the light

      And there's blue sky breaking
      Through the edge of the night
      I can see the light
      Oh, I can see the light

    Now I climb the steps to freedom
    The open gates I can see them
    Hands I once knew
    Beckoning me through
    As the sunlight touch my face
    I can feel the warm embrace
    Arms surround me
    My life has found me

    Will-power, give me some to survive
    One more hour and I'm coming alive
    I can see the light


Earth Moving
Lead vocals: Nikki "B" Bentley (of "B" Force)
Additional vocals: Max Bacon
Background vocals: Keith Murrell, Sonia Jones Morgan, Maggie Ryder, Jackie Challenor, Carl Wayne, Lance Ellington

    I hear a voice from paradise
    Looks like a new day dawning
    So clear I just open my eyes
    Can't you hear the voice calling

      I feel a rush in the air tonight
      I can feel the earth moving
      Love is a beacon, a guiding light
      Can't you feel the earth move
      Feel the earth move
      Now I'm wrapped in a sweet love's arms
      Reaching out for you
      There's something magic in the air tonight
      I can feel the earth move
      And it moves me
      Can't you hear the voice calling
      It looks like a new day dawning

    Reach out - it's a leap to the dark
    But there's no danger of falling
    Give out give it straight from the heart
    You feel like thunder rolling

      Chorus


Blue Night
Lead vocals: Maggie Reilly
Background vocals: Maggie Reillly and Daniel Lazerus

    To the whole room her eyes are numb
    As she reads from a true love story
    From the pages of a book her lover comes
    Her heart bleeds it's a true love story

    Misty shade in the window by her bed
    Dreaming on what she's read
    Hero takes her hand and leads her through
    Who knows what this night will do

      Only in the blue night, he comes to her
      Only in the blue night
      That's when the whole night belongs to her
      Only in the blue night

    I see a dark face by the moon's glow
    As she reads from a true love story
    Beckoning hand scratching at the window
    Her heart beats, it's a true love story

    Misty path and the night is endless
    She could be a Queen or a desert princess
    Hero takes her hand and leads her through
    Who knows what this night will do

      Only in the blue night, he comes to her
      Only in the blue night
      That's when the whole night belongs to her
      Only in the blue night

    She wants to break free
    From the cold light of reality
    And as she drifts away
    I hear her voice say - come away

    Dark skin glistening by the silver light
    This is the hero come tonight
    And taking her hand he leads her through
    Who knows what this night will do

      Only in the blue night, he comes to her
      Only in the blue night
      That's when the whole night belongs to her
      Only in the blue night


Nothing But
Lead vocals: Carol Kenyon
Additional vocals: Paul Lee

    You will have nothing but love
    Nothing but hope, blue sky above
    You will find nothing but peace
    Nothing but the sun shining on your face

      When you open your eyes
      When you open your eyes

    You will feel nothing but free
    Nothing but trust that's how it should be
    And one who cares about nothing but you
    Watching close by the whole night through

      When you open your eyes
      When you open your eyes

    You will feel nothing but warm
    Nothing but shelter from the storm
    You will have nothing but rest
    Deep in your heart nothing but the best

    Nothing but love when you open your eyes
    Nothing but love when you open your eyes


Bridge to Paradise
Lead vocals: Max Bacon
Additional vocals: Phil Spalding
Background vocals: Keith Murrell, Sonia Jones Morgan, Maggie Ryder, Jackie Challenor, Carl Wayne, Lance Ellington

    This town is just a fake
    A place where you can't tell the devil from your brother
    Poisoned every breath you take
    It's just like one nightmare after the other

    You know it's not too late to leave tomorrow
    'Cos I know where I'm going

      I am building a bridge to paradise
      I am building a bridge to paradise

    This town you can't control
    (A place) that fascinates hits you with the drama
    Don't worry now for my soul
    ('Cos I'm) heading for a higher panorama

    You know it's not too late for you to follow
    'Cos I know where I'm going

      I am building a bridge to paradise
      I am building a bridge to paradise

    You know it's not too late to follow
    You know it's not too late to follow

    Repeat
