about

The Edge UK

We All Fall Down, Dark Scrawls and Within This World Within My Mind encapsulate raw moments of creativity, life, expression, movement and thought and yet in their fluidity are open to interpretation. ... more

Track Name: Within This World WIthin My Mind
Wonderful the afterglow
Softly falls the touch of snow
Silently the distant call
Shadows cast the mighty wall

Heroes hide heroes fall
Lament the cry defy the call
A life to save a life to find
Within this world within my mind

I hear your voice
I hear you call
I hear you cry
Within this world within my mind

Quietly their numbers grew
A precious child amongst the few
A time to fly a time to find
Within this world within my mind

I see (in the light) your hopes
I see (in the light) your dreams
I see (in the light) you shine
Within this world within my mind

Promises that once were made
Eternal hope the echoes fade
Wonderful the shining light
Darkness hails the dead of night

Soaring birds on silvered wings
Rising up the angel sings
A life to save a life so kind
Within this world within my mind
Track Name: Now Thank The Bees
Now take some honey with instant coffee
Some cheddar cheese now thank the bees
Now throw a party (no money when she came)
And catch a book (sweet honey was her name)
Then sail the seas (she'll never hear them say)
Now thank the bees (so clever now they play)

A time in wars and worlds are we
A thought a way can never be

Now watch some weather then hide away
Walk on your knees now thank the bees
Now buy a monkey (stop talking walk on by)
And call him Steve (my monkey alibi)
Then pay the fees (still waiting time to say)
Now thank the bees (no faking not today)

A terrible man a terrible face
The beautiful chaos the ugly space

Now ride a horse then learn to drive
Don't lose your keys now thank the bees
Now sing a song (hey sugar let it be)
Don't make it long (keep talking can't you see)
Then hug the trees (start watching then you'll know)
Now thank the bees (keep walking time to go)

The lazy boy never seen
The crazy toy now kill the queen
Track Name: I Am Your Stalker
Pictures of heaven sent lusty glazed eyes torment
shadows of night hails the dawn
Paper weight stains of the soothing remains
and the whispers of light splattered walls
Finding my way through the glint of the day
and the rushing bell over tones
Still hold the key to the place by the sea
and the far flung filthy fed

I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker

And they search for the bay where we both hide away
as they restlessly hunt through the rain
And the pale mountain cries as the tears from its eyes
start to gather and drive us away
But they won't find their way can you hear what I say
as i'm holding your hand next to mine
As we jump from the moon we'll be singing as soon
as the echoes and flickering fade

I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker I am your stalker
Track Name: Obsessive Repulsive
Waking wonder falling under
Call me obsessive repulsive

Scary faces wacky races
Call me obsessive repulsive

Golden horses special forces
Call me obsessive repulsive

Empty cases far flung places
Call me obsessive repulsive
Track Name: Baron Pain
Baron pain
Burning rain
Shallow minds

Is it the tranquil and calm before the oncoming storm
The peaceful serenity hurts

Broken Dreams
Silent screams
Wasted days

Is it the tranquil and calm before the oncoming storm
The peaceful serenity hurts
Track Name: Moon Monkey
He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
and he doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do
but we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue

The empty space

So you fly to the right of the infinite well
passed the hole in the wall and the sanity bell
And as you soar through the stars with the greatest of ease
you'll find the freak of the skies in the planet of cheese

He is a monkey
A little monkey

He's green he smells he acts like a God
and the cross in his eyes makes him look kind of odd
As he walks he struts with a manner of hate
towards the blind and the weak who pass through his gate

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky
We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky

So if you choose to ignore what is waiting for you
at the end of the line then I'll give you a clue
He's a fiend with a mind that will feast on the pure
but seek the chimp of the skies and your pain will endure

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky
We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky

He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
He doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do
But we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue
Track Name: Letters To Grace
My lonely heart
My lonely mind
My empty space is all you'll find
My time to sing
My time to cry
For those who give
For those who try

An open book
An open mind
My empty space is all you'll find
My lonely world
My chosen few
My empty hope
I'll wait for you

Stolen words are all I have to say I care to say I care
Maybe some day I'll find love
Maybe some day I'll find love
And I won't look back
And I won't look back
And I love you
And I love you
Track Name: My Immortal Fool
My immortal fool
My immortal fool
My immortal fool
My immortal fool

I live for the day when the boat finds its way
and the light shining bright fades away
And still I remain with the fading terrain
of the pictures my mind fails to see

My immortal fool
My immortal fool
My immortal fool
My immortal fool
Track Name: The Slipper That Moved
Is anybody there?
Creeping on the stair

Mr happy, faulty dreamers, pleasure crew and the whale
Tiny horses, minty sauces, frosty fools, disarray
The sight of a silver stone beware of the danger zone
The slipper that moved

Is anybody there?
Creeping on the stair

Sandy shelters, helter skelters, flappy dance, buzzy bee
Smiley faces, sunny places, oyster schools, bird of prey
The sound of a wonky wheel but never to seal the deal
The slipper that moved
Track Name: Jetpack Labyrinth
The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth

When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves
When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves

The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth The Jetpack Labyrinth

When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves
When we go we hide ourselves when we go we hide ourselves
Track Name: Origins
Within this world (no they don't hold back)
Within my mind (out of the furious inferno)
Within this world (like a cavorting colossus)
Within my mind (into the deafening silence)

Home my heart will find you
Home my heart will take you
Home my heart will stay alone

Through the night
Through the dark
I'll find you I'll find you

Within this world (infinity passed)
Within this world (infinity passed)
Within this world
Track Name: I Saw A Ghost
I saw a ghost of you smiling as you used to do
The moment I call you walk through the wall

I hear your voice so true tell me what I have to do
The message you gave I'll take to the grave

My song will stay with you this is what I like to do
A drop of your tear and then I'll appear
Track Name: Wait For The Moon
When will we meet again and say our goodbyes
Watching your shooting star you can't go far

When will you touch the sky to see me again
Hoping you hear me now I don't know how

Wait for the moon shining above the sky
Shining amongst the stars

Time for sleep
Time for sleep
Time for sleep
Time for sleep
