Track Name: Transmissions
It doesn't take too long before they come back on again. They've got you thinking wrong, you know they're trying to do you in. Transmissions, get out of my head. You want some peace of mind from the stories that never end. You've never seen yourself being back on your own again. Transmissions, get out of my head. The little voice inside that keeps telling you "go for it". They've got you deaf and dumb, while they're putting on a show. Transmissions, get out of my head.
Track Name: Raw Little Animal
It's some kind of morning, some kind of night. You know it ain't evil, you know it's not a lie. We're living in a vision with a silly smile. I could run I could walk a mile. You know that you want it, but you've gotta try. Leave your old inhibitions out to dry. ('Cause you're a raw little animal). You feel alone in the city, you've got something wrong. It don't take nothing, and all your will is gone. Your reeling emotions got set aside. How did life get so cut and dried? You can lose it out of habit, can you give a sign? Can we live in the moment, can I know you're mine? (Crazy love flowing over me)
