Turn Around (P McMahon) I know I may be wrong but I don't think that you'll understand I've been so-lo for so long this could could so soon get out of hand turn around, turn around my self control is failing close your eyes, close your eyes before I fall in it cannot be, it cannot be my reason decides let it be, let it be my heart loudly cries I can't feel the pain that I should be feeling the fear that once had me reeling now I know all I need is to be here where you are near me I know this may be wrong but I can't fight my feelings it's getting much to strong but it's oh so easy turn around, turn around my self control is failing close your eyes, close your eyes before I fall in it cannot be, it cannot be my reason decides let it be, let it be my heart loudly cries shame that I should be feeling dies in the hearts revealing I have no cause to doubt you I know there's no life without you you take my hand and lead me through my dark despair it is done, it shall be done the road is long and yet I know we shall get there through the night, through the storm the vice no longer holds my heart in chains of ice it is warm, you keep it warm to be with you to see the trees the rocks the sky is to live, is to love

Mirage (lyrics P McMahon music C & P McMahon 1979) All alone beyond the hills Beneath a cloudless sky All the things I thought had gone Are right before my eyes Sun beats down relentlessly My eyes are filled with sand How can this be happening How can I understand The nameless evil has been stirred The mutant march can now be heard Black the tide advancing on Death lies in it's wake Icy whirlpool draws me down Pray for my soul's sake My brain is screaming without sound I feel I'm slowly going down Beneath dark waters now I drown I see so clearly now I am no longer alone If you could see somehow If the truth could be known You will come here someday But you have nothing to fear You feel alone but come what may Those that we love are so near

Over The River (P McMahon 2002) The breath of life laid bare The faintest flicker burning Worn beyond repair By the years of love and learning Over the river you go before me Strong in faith spirit clear Full of purpose free of fear This I tell you A life that numbered days A gift so precious but so fleeting I never saw your face A heart too frail to keep on beating Over the river way beyond me For all the things you'll never see All you'll never grow to be This I tell you Every day I know you walk beside me Now and then I hear your voice inside me I know there will always be a part of you alive in me And I will keep it there forever And now it comes to me As I am growing older To set my spirit free Lift this burden from my shoulder Over the river no returning For all the things I've left undone Battles lost and battles won This I tell you Every day I will walk beside you If you need me I'll be there to guide you I hope there will always be a space inside your heart for me And I will be with you forever
5.
Another Country (Chris & Paul McMahon) The red lines hit the headlines the cover is blown The stranger grace and danger we fear the unknown Truth and slander propaganda the smoke without flame Mutation alienation the difference is plain No no never in a million years No not in this world You have a fine way of living You have a nice way of putting me down But when it comes to forgiving - you don't This is another country This is my home I wouldn't change it Over the border lies the promised land Religion television the tools and the trade Discloses blood and roses the land we have made Divisions politicians scoring points in the game Two nations for generations we were never the same No no never in a million years No not in this world 'Cos when it comes to forgiving - you don't This is another country This is my home I wouldn't change it Over the border lies the promised land This is another country This is my home I wouldn't change it This is the country that I understand

Autumn (lyrics P McMahon music C & P McMahon 1986) Well I can still remember how it used to be When you were here with me And even after all these years I still feel the pain Cos I know I won't see you again Most of the time you'll find me here At my table by the door I don't know what I come here for Landlord, Landlord, Landlord fill the flowing bowl Until it runs over In these Autumn years why must I be alone I would never have left you Just one more question to ask before I break down & cry Why did you have to die?

For Real (C McMahon) this is for real this is my truth you vowed you'd never write love songs and if we're trapped by stage & song I never thought I'd lose My cynics mind as I drive I'll park up underneath the bridge walk a mile along the ridge I'll leave everything in place of my guitar you'll see no trace I'll keep my silence to the end you can say I was a friend I'll start again somewhere new where no one knows me or you don't ever doubt your faith in me I'll never lose my trust in you and if they ask you where I've gone you can say whatever you like I'll park up underneath the bridge walk a mile along the ridge I'll leave everything in place of my guitar they'll find no trace I'll hold my silence to the end tell them I was just a friend I'll walk out onto the sea to wash away what's left of me and then I'll look back home just one last time and I'll cry I parked up underneath the bridge walked a mile along the ridge I put everything in place of my guitar I left no trace I walked in silence to the end loved you like you were a friend I'll start up on the isle of green where no one knows who or what I've been

See Her Face (lyrics P McMahon music P McMahon 1986) She knows she has the strength of illusion She will never concede the game Face to face revealing only what she wants to show She shines, like the sun on a window pane She needs no hiding place, see her face She waits, alone in a web of seclusion One eye stares at the falling rain He will come, to burn his wings before the lighted flame She smiles, cold as frost on the crystal pane She needs no hiding place, see her face She moves, he follows as lamb to the slaughter Dancing only at her command In the end, his eyes shall see her as she is and then Her hand cuts the string and the puppet dies

Portrait (P McMahon) with the passing of an age a swift repainting of the world now to new gods people pray new banners are unfurled to keep the peace with god & man we have to compromise between our conscience and our will self righteousness or lies - surprise stories change & pictures fade leaving legends strewn behind orphaned children of hte past living thoughts of long dead minds one day today will be fading dust upon the shelf all of us that can survive is in our lives our loves our selves - not wealth so what can you be, if not yourself, and you will see it's not what you have, but what you are, it's clear to me the substance iwll fade, only emotion will survive so have faith in life, and you will find the time it's something in the eyes, that lies deep, behind the smile that says you could find, the other side, of your life so don't hide behine, a fading memory of your life come into the light, and you will find the time time bestrides the narrow world like a collosus and we run about between its legs to find ourselves unfulfilled graves - not saved

The Edge Of Heaven (Paul McMahon) Gently falls the night through my window on the world Diamonds in velvet skies shine in heaven for you As you sleep tonight starliht finds you I don't know where you are but I want to be there I need to be there You have been my inspiration You will be my rainbows end At the edge of heaven we shall stand Soft as angels wings deeper than the ocean Footprints on sacred ground side by side Side by side You have been my inspiration You will be my rainbows end At the edge of heaven we shall stand Lead me by silent waters stay by my side I can't deny this feeling it will never die This will never die You have been my inspiration You will be my rainbows end At the edge of heaven we shall stand

Let Go (C & P McMahon 1996) There ain't nothing you can do or say about it Can't fix it overnight This whole world's too big to carry on your shoulder Put it down a little while Life isn't always in danger Don't crucify yourself Life isn't all about changes Have mercy on yourself You've got to let go And no matter how you try to climb the mountain You keep slipping down the slope When you're clinging by your fingernails to nothing You know you haven't got a hope Life isn't always in danger Don't crucify yourself Life isn't all about changes Have mercy on yourself You've got to let go It's time to close your eyes and dream Disconnect and go downstream You did all you could you know you're only flesh and blood It's time to leave the fight and let the dragon sleep tonight Time to let go

The Vice (lyrics P McMahon music C & P McMahon 1981) When the vice of sleep lies broken And the curtains of night hang torn Unbidden thoughts are awoken In the uncertain light of dawn you think you see Well it can give you the strangest feeling So gently it slips away And the friends that you once thought so near Seem to fade in the light of day Well it's always been that way And I think it's too late now It may be too late So much time has passed since then I am no longer sure just how I feel I don't know why they call time a healer When it tears your flesh apart Wipes out all your feelings Squeezes tears of blood from your heart Yes it's always been that way And I think it's too late now Yes I'm quite sure it's too late Why does time take all our lives And rip up apart it tears us apart Hardens hearts & closes minds As fetid hands choke life from life to dust I was there even in your darkest hour Fight despair only fear & hate devour I was there even in your darkest hour Fight despair only fear & hate devour

Ophelia (lyrics P Chisnell music P Chisnell, C & P McMahon 1985) At the waters edge I stand A figure in blue etched in the sand I look for your face To subdue my craving mind All I see is myself My feelings for you you never knew Try as I might I was bound to lose I need you touch to satisfy the ache inside All I feel is your loss Oh Ophelia were you brave Or did your love denied Become more than life itself Time & tide rise over my head My silent searching now at an end I see your face Death worth the dying You are forever mine

In The End (lyrics P McMahon music P McMahon 1986) Warm glow, creeping through my window, dancing in the air Your smile, shining in my minds eye, wishing you were here Where we come from is where we'll go to Where we come from they'll never know how far from home they are All we have seen will fade, into the dark Leaving only ourselves hand in hand In the end Twilight, hanging on the edge of night, burning like a flame Your eyes, flicker in the firelight, whispering my name We are walking into the darkness Holding high the undying spark we'll never be alone All we have seen will fade, into the dark Leaving only ourselves hand in hand In the end Alone we are ended, our souls undefended we cling to each other for our lives Fro now we can see, what we are is all be need And our hears beat together for our lives Holding the torch high we live though the flame dies And these are the best days of our lives In love undefeated our hopes undepleted now these are the last days of our lives

05:16
Dragonfly (P McMahon) We will dance across the fields the reaper and the grinding wheel The blood that falls onto the fields will bind us As water falls onto the seed across the silent soil we bleed We will be together when they find us We will dance across the sea let the breakers set us free The power of the untamed sea will grind us You can be the air I crave I will be your tidal wave We will be together when they find us We will dance across the sand the prophet and the burning man The light reflecting from the sand will blind us The blazing sun will burn our skin and bring to life the flame within We will be together when they find us We will dance across the sky the eagle and the dragon fly blaze a trail across the sky behind us You will be my healing flame I will be your final frame We will be together when they find us We dance across the universe a silent scream an ageless curse we will leave this barren earth behind us The poetry and timeless grace the beauty of your bloodless face We will be together when they find us

Train (Chris McMahon) I woke up early with the sun in my eyes and the dream still clear in my mind I walked out of my life and out of town, with my bags just as it started to rain I sat right down by the railroad track just like it had been in the dream I laid down my load, with nothing to lose and waited for the train Now after a while my friend came by just to see what I was goin through And we talked about the way everybody seemed to be waiting for something new to come along and change the way we are & what we’re gonna do and after a while she sat right down there and started waiting too A few days later folk were stopping by and some of them would stay we had tents & fires & music & stuff the biggest party that you ever saw soon we were getting organized building homes & growing our food & I got so busy that I almost forgot just what I was waiting for A year has come & gone and you wouldn't believe just how things have changed everyday there’s more people here I never knew so many felt the same But still sometimes I think about the dream & how my life would have been on a rainy day in summertime waiting for the train Now our kids have grown old and I’m getting tired as I look back on what we've done we’ve schools & shops & doctors & things and a sense of who we are for sure But there’s still no sign of change in the world or the things that we’re hoping’ll come And sometimes I think maybe it’s all inside what we‘re waiting for In the dead of night I sat by the track all alone as the stars unfurled I felt younger as the world grew old and I don’t think I’ll be coming back put my ear to the ground and I heard a rumbling sound like thunder from another world then a blinding light and a screaming steam and the last thing I saw was the train coming down the track

The Hum (lyrics P Chisnell, music P Chisnell, C & P McMahon 1983) Up and down the street the lights go on says Ethel to Joe "can you hear the hum" "oh go to sleep" "oh go to sleep" But the hum got worse & sleep got less Soon poor old Joe couldn't dream of Tess Trouble was near Trouble was near The cause they found was underground Ethel dashed indoors to phone the town "moles are at war" "moles are at war" In recessed dim blind panic reigned As moles brown and black fought a battle of hue How do they know who is who? How do they know who is who? Now all their troubles are soon to pass As the man from the town brought out his gas Now we can all get some sleep Now we can all get some sleep

The Barrister And The Bargast (P McMahon) 2006 Across Paradise Square in his suit & bow tie The Barrister strode with a gleam in his eye His morals were low, but his fees were sky high For he knew how to cheat & he knew how to lie He worked late in the evening so he could charge more For his time and his knowledge of old English law The shadows lay deep as he walked from his door Through the old cobbled square from a time long before The Bargast awoke in the depths of his lair Hidden from mortal eyes under the square A huge ghostly dog with red eyes and black hair He lifted his nose and he scented the air What manner of man can give off such a smell? The stench of corruption and Old Spice as well It was worse than the stench in the bowels of Hell A smell which the Bargast knew only too well The Bargast came forth and the man stopped dead He looked as the size of the beast and he said "You better be licensed or woe betide you, I'll have you put down and your master I'll sue" The Bargast looked back with his red eyes aglow He said "My master is no one you'd know, I round up the guilty and I take them below, Now it's your turn to feel my teeth in your soul" The Barrister turned and he fled with some vigour But expense account luncheons had fattened his figure So the Bargast soon had the man pinned to the deck And he opened his jaws to rip out his neck The Barrister pleased and begged for his life He spoke of his children and his greaving wife The Bargast just stared the man deep in the eyes And said "This World has heard enough of your lies" "your children despise you they'll be glad when you go, Your wife left you three and a half years ago, You have all the appeal of a three week dead Cod, And you mistress loves only the size of your wad. "There's none that will mourn you I bid you farewell You soul is now forfeit, your place is in Hell, For justice and mercy you care not one Groat" And the noble beast ripped out the Barrister's throat So hear me you Lawyers and learn from my tale With your nose in the swill and your thumb on the scales Beware of the Bargast and his sniffling snout Or be sure that you sins will rip your throat out!

Unto The Dawn peace is written in the sand until the waves wash it away as they flow raindrops begin to fall and the sun will greet another day while the clouds turn & say goodbye the earth awakes in heed to sunlight's call the golden dome of light will rise up through the sky so always hold your head up high before you miss and sleep now the night is falling as flowers bow their heads and fade the blossom dies the petals softly fall now peace is written in our hearts waves no longer wash the shore here we wait until the cold grey dawn

In The Light (Paul McMahon) You rise to greet the day With the night far behind In some mysterious way You're not all alone Trapped behind these walls But inside you're free To wander ancient halls Forever turning keys You spoke of your dreams once But so long ago Is it too late now Will they never grow How long have you been here Shut away from light When will it be clear That your way is right You spoke of your dreams once Your dreams were so old But now in the light of this new day The blade is so cold

The Night (P McMahon 1979) Well there was never a moment when I believed that I was alone Though I never knew I could be so sure That when my mind was troubled I could call on you Never doubting you would help me How could I be so wrong? Why did I trust you? I placed all my hopes on you to be let down again But now now I see you were never there at all You see that I I could never doubt you But I can live without you I'm sure I can You see that I never needed you that was just a phase I was going through believe me All this time and nothing left to show But self deluding dreams than never grow Acid thoughts bite deep into my pain Ice cold fear drives bitterness insane I see now what I must do I guess I always knew And now now that all is said and done I never really cared You see that I I knew it all along But I took that pain and I was strong but not enough I can face the night but when that darkness leaves I just can't bear to face the dawn alone not alone

Seven Stones (Chris & Paul McMahon) Day breaks light into a dark world Stars fade I see where I am Blue skies turn to grey inside me Flying high and into the rising sun Don't wait for me any longer By tomorrow things could have changes It couldn't be the same Seven stones seven stars above you Dying in the courtyard there's one white tree Memories fading from the old world Living in a dream that's dead and gone Don't wait for me any longer I think already it's too late It couldn't be the same I'm not waiting any longer By tomorrow things could have changed It couldn't be the same

Last Orders (lyrics P McMahon music P McMahon 1986) As the lights go out in England Gentle breeze blows through the trees Sighing in a voice like winter Last Orders please Last Orders please
