You say you’re proud to be one of the people
Hands in the money and your feet on the ground
Shouting out loud from the top of the steeple
Counting the flock while collecting their pounds
All you thieving wheeler-dealers in the healing zone
Giving me fever, fever, fever, fever down to my bones

I pray
and nothing happens
Jesus
It’s all in my mind
You say stop looking for answers and reasons
They’re all in your mind

Covered in flies and smothered in lava
I can’t scratch my itches with these pumice stone hands
I dream of my days as a desert farmer
Living my life on the fat of the sand
All you thieving wheeler-dealers in the healing zone
Giving me fever, fever, fever, fever down to my bones

I pray
and nothing happens
Jesus
It’s all in my mind
You say stop looking for answers and reasons
They’re all in your mind

Stuck in a world losing its way and wonder
I wonder what happened in the world we knew
Splitting the atom and feeling the thunder
Could never ever make me feel the way you do
You give me fever, fever, fever, fever down to my bones
Wheel me, wheel me, wheel me to the healing zone

I pray
and nothing happens
Jesus
It’s all in my mind
You say stop looking for answers and reasons
They’re all in your mind

“New Direction” by Echo & The Bunnymen.

Listen to this Song!

Words by Ian McCulloch, music by Sergeant/McCulloch/Pattinson. © 1987 WEA Records, Ltd.

Out on a limb
Did you see what the cat dragged in?
Take it on the chin
Catching fire on a roof of tin

You’ve learnt to speak and you’re professing
The right to teach us our direction
But I found out on close inspection
True imperfections

I’m looking for a new direction
Where in the world am I?
I took the word and the words was resurrection
And then you took me out to climb

Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Kissing the spires
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Souls on fire

Inside of my head
I heard what the good Lord said
“Beware” he said
If you don’t you might end up dead

You suck the air right out of me
But though you suck you cannot see
That life and living is not free
Though you live you do not breathe

I’m looking for a new direction
Where in the world am I?
I took the word and the words was resurrection
And then you took me out to climb

Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Kissing the spires
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Souls on fire

I have changed
But still me heart
Remains intact
And true love stays
But will our hearts
Retain the lack of

No sense and no direction
Who in the world am I?
I took the word and the word was resurrection
And then you took me out to climb

Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Kissing the spires
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Higher and higher
Souls on fire

“Never Stop” by Echo & The Bunnymen.

Listen to this Song!

Words by Ian McCulloch, music by Sergeant/McCulloch/Pattinson/DeFreitas. © 1983 Zoo Music/Warner Brothers Music, Ltd..

Good God you said, “Is that the only thing you care about?”
Splitting up the money and share it out?
The cake’s been eaten straight through the mouth
Poison
Poised to come back in season
For all the ones who lacked reason

Measure by measure drop by drop
And pound for pound we’re taking stock
Of all the treasures still unlocked
The love you found must never stop

The king is dead and long live the people who aim above
All the simple stuff never understood
Like right from bad and wrong from good
Deny that you were ever tempted by the lie
That there’s an answer in the sky

Measure by measure drop by drop
And pound for pound we’re taking stock
Of all the treasures still unlocked
The love you found must never stop

Never stop
