    I wouldn't necessarily suggest purchasing this but it might be worth a listen as being recorded a month before the end of the band it gives the best idea of where we'd got to before fading away.
    It's the one I tend to listen to.

Eventually 02:07
And I'm not saying this to you, I never could you see I'm just wiping away the tears I will, I will, I do believe that I will Eventually And if you say that it's Then it's fa-fa-fine Such a fine, fine time A date, a time, a place to hide form prying eyes While I just wipe away the tears I can, I can, I do believe that I can Eventually And if you say that it's fine Then it's fa-fa-fine Such a fine, fine time And you're not saying this to me, you never could I see You're just wiping away the tears We will, we will, I do believe that we will Eventually And if you say that it's fine Then it's fa-fa-fine Such a fine, fine time

Happily Mad 03:02
I don’t like to argue, but when alone with my thoughts I want to scream at myself (to try and think) To wake myself up (to make a change) To kick me where it hurts Then pray to change our luck Then pray to change our luck I don’t want to speak out, but when I’m in a crowd I want to scream at them (to make them think) To shatter their sleep (to blow a fuse) To wipe the smug smiles off their face Wave goodbye to our dreams Wave goodbye to our dreams Don’t get mad at me, don’t get mad at me I just want you to be happy, so don’t get mad at me You’ve got to come of age, you’ve got to come of age I wrote this song for you, badly written but certainly true You’re still mad at me, you’re still mad at me I just wanted you to be pleased, but why are you mad at me? I think you’ve come of age, I think you’ve come of age I wrote this song to you but I don’t think it could be true

JK Rant 03:10
Oh God I’ve had it up to here with you Your clothes, your face, your voice just grates and grates and grates And you, you hypocrite oh was I fooled White soul boy on the pull, which girlfriend is she on the pill? Your pack of six will soon be full, but not of gold As I’ve heard the words behind the backs Give me fiction dismiss the facts You can have it all, You can have it all The words that I speak aren’t quite what I feel Even my mouth can’t get that contorted, may the truth be distorted Dope head or smack head it’s all the same to me Blow by blow she’ll make you grow that I can guarantee But into a man or a cripple you’ll just have to wait and see As I’ve heard the words behind the backs Give me fiction dismiss the facts You can have it all, You can have it all You see I’ve heard it so many times before And I’ve seen it so many times before I don’t have to explain myself to you, you know The price was right but it’s you they’ve sold I’d rather rip my tongue out than be told Oh daddy darling daddy, I want that one It’s gotta be pink so I can get turned on all day long Now I’m in the driving seat but I think I’ve said something wrong As I’ve heard the words behind my back Goodbye to fiction this is fact I don’t want it all, I don’t want it all As I’m hearing the words behind my back Goodbye to fiction this is fact You can have it all, You can have it all

Push 03:15
The honest are few when it comes to the heart Better to steal and lie from the start Get what you can from that generous hand while it lasts Deception is easy we're taught from our birth Take what you want before you get hurt There's only one end, no such thing as a friend now you've learnt I know, I've got nowhere to go So I might as well stay here with you Push it in easy, push it in slow Take your time while you've go it there's nowhere to go Gone, gone, gone, until it's all gone My way is slower I don't care about that I sit and I dream and I dream where I'm sat The picture isn't clearer through a telescope I can cope So hello, good evening, welcome, goodnight Let me fall down it will avoid a fight The scene is a dream and form what I've seen, it's outta sight I know, I've got nowhere to go So I might as well stay here with you Push it in easy, push it in slow Take your time while you've go it there's nowhere to go Gone, gone, gone, until it's all gone On a lovely summer's afternoon I'd like to walk in the park with you Hold you in my arms and Sue Tell you I'm in love with you Push it in easy, push it in slow Take your time while you've go it there's nowhere to go Gone, gone, gone, until it's all gone

Naff Song 03:35
I would indiscreetly, smile, when you meet me But that would give away my heart So I sadly deny my mind and do not gaze into your eyes You'd surely laugh if you knew my heart So you say, you wouldn't have it any other way So I say, it's getting kinda late. Kate Kate, though I'm late. I'm looking to see what you could mean to me Kate, I know I'm late. But wait until after this current disaster I'm so sure I want you, tell me what I should do I'm scared you'd laugh and break my heart Is it lust at first sight, am I blinded by your light At last I know I have a heart So you say, you wouldn't have it any other way So I say, it's getting kinda late. Kate Kate, though I'm late. I'm looking to see what you could mean to me Kate, I know I'm late. But wait until after this current disaster Wait a while. Please wait a while. I want to see you smile So you say, you wouldn't have it any other way So I say, it's getting kinda late. Kate Kate, though I'm late. I'm looking to see what you could mean to me Kate, I know I'm late. But wait until after this current disaster

I Was Right 02:36
Another day to waste away Caught hoping I wouldn't have to stay To clear up all the doubt of what was meant That goes to show that I was right I was right. Yes I was right Written out to sell the show The script that sold you tears will someday show If tendered with your well known loving care Will go to show that I was right I was right. Yes I was right I was right to say it anyway and anyway I'm right to say I'm right. Yes I am right How do you know what I say is true? Why do you trust me when I never trusted you? Why tell the truth when it's easy to deceive? Why face the future when it's easier to grieve? Another letter gone astray Another chance left to slip away Another choice that I got wrong Just goes to show that I was right I was right. Yes I was right I was right to say it anyway and anyway I'm right to say I'm right. Yes I am right

Demand action, demand all that you need If power's what you're after, then stick with me Haven't you heard I'm the new messiah So demand action 'till you're blue in the face It's so shocking, what they've printed about me I think I'll have to sue them, great prime T.V. time Even more publicity And it's so shocking, c'mon keep on printing about me But no more home truths Aim high but always wide of the mark You must obey, must obey Aim high but always wide of the mark You must obey, you must obey
8.
I am tired and I am lonely in this God forsaken town The noise of silence is so nervously loud The ticking of a watch or a car in the street Is enough to make this poor boy shiver in the heat Why can’t I be near you now, why can’t I touch your face Your eyes I know are beautiful, but lost without a trace Sitting all alone with cigarettes as his friend I think of all my heroes’ and pathetically pretend I am that man, the one that gets the girl The one that is so far away living in a separate world Your picture is on wall like a sentimental guard Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you hide, but I always try too hard So rest my imagination and consider the truth He is a romantic and you have all your youth Summer dreams and summer looms like the greatest gift of all Tell her she is beautiful and tell her not to full Why can’t I be near you now, why can’t I touch your face Your eyes I know are beautiful, but lost without a trace Your picture is on wall like a sentimental guard Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you hide, but I always try too hard
9.
As I look into those drunken eyes I see behind those well meant lies You tell me what I want to hear there's nothing left for me to fear My mind my mind is so unkind I'm glad it's as little yours as mine Not kept within some sacred book those words I said which you mistook For honesty when the thought was greed when selfishness is all I need I think I think I think it's true, I don't deserve it as much as you Like some old blues record I'm in love with a friends girlfriend I'm as much in love as I've been in love which is never in love before And like some old blues record I'm gonna have to cry a little more If I'm asked what's behind those eyes I won't repeat it I will lie For what I thought you confirmed was true what you say is a corrupted truth It's not your fault no more than mine the same desire but I see behind Whatever use you put it to I will not follow the path you choose There's nothing wrong and nothing right so I'll take my leave and say goodnight What you say isn't what you do and I don't deserve it as much as you Like some old blues record I'm in love with a friends girlfriend I never wanted to be and though I try I know that it won't end I'm as much in love as I've been in love which is never in love before And like some old blues record I'm gonna have to cry a little more

I'm Hit 03:05
See the fist, but wait for the smile Here it comes rushing to my face I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, But I’m hit I’m falling and calling on bended knee Don’t take me down here with you I never meant what I said but say it I did You know it hurts to be hit with the truth My nose in the dirt, palming the sweat Muscle taught, biting at the bit I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, But I’m hit I’m falling and calling on bended knee Don’t take me down here with you I never meant what I said but say it I did You know it hurts to be hit with the truth But don’t even the score I couldn’t take that again But don’t even the score So you’ve evened the score I can’t take it again Not again So here’s the twist, you missed by a mile And now I’m laughing, laughing at your face ’cause I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, but I’m hit I’m falling and calling on bended knee Don’t take me down here with you I never meant what I said but say it I did You know it hurts to be hit with the truth

Desire 03:00
Answer, just one answer is all I want, and please try this time to be true Did the past seem too distant or the future all too clear When I faced your back was it out of fear Try hard not to feel used for there's nothing I can do Keep me away from it all. To see you smile won't break my fall Passion's burning, burning like fire. Keep me away from this desire I now know that beauty is only skin deep you told me that it was true Despite it all and because of it all, my goal is always out of reach I now know that it's not true. And I'm not yet through Keep me away from it all. To see you smile won't break my fall Passion's burning, burning like fire. Keep me away from this desire Maybe this time it wasn't even luck, I'll just have to wait and see Damning you won't do any good. My mind says I shouldn't my heart says I should I've waited and I've seen, so listen to me Keep me away from it all. To see you smile won't break my fall Passion's burning, burning like fire. Keep me away from this desire Answer and just one answer is all I got. And this time it was true The past it has gone now it's the future that's here I turned my back so you wouldn't see the tears Which were in my eyes 'cause I knew. I don't desire you Keep me away from it all. To see you smile won't break my fall Passion's burning, burning like fire. Keep me away from this desire

Touch Down 02:48
These last two days have been a revelation I’m back is what I think I said Feeling boxed in, out of time and out of tune Was I glad to be alive or still wishing I was dead Touch down I’m not a buck an hour That’s why I’m driving away My mind is full of diamonds You too will be great one day My brother he was so right Personality that is the key So what’s the secret how could you do so well Did he throw it all away because of me Touch down I’m not a buck an hour That’s why I’m driving away My mind is full of diamonds You too will be great one day I look back at what could have been achieved Of a hero turned to waste Who looked at me with spite in his eyes Now I see tears of love streaming down his face Touch down I’m not a buck an hour That’s why I’m driving away My mind is full of diamonds You too will be great one day

Cut 03:14
Saturday, turn out the lights, settle down and draw some blood from you You know I only if I really have to Winter dawns, summer rains are long since gone, the scars are thanks to you Even in the daylight all is old Hate is blind. Am I out of time I'm in the way when there's money to make When you're hearts on your sleeve when you're getting in debt When it's pleasure and pain when you're falling away When the person you've wed has got up and left Don't delay, the games away and they won't miss you if you turn up late The pleasures in the taking of the best How's your arm? You brought that on yourself the son that you once new is dead Put the needle back into the draw All is mine. All the time I'm in the way when there's money to make When you're hearts on your sleeve when you're getting in debt When it's pleasure and pain when you're falling away When the person you've wed has got up and left Now's the time. Time to lie I'm in the way when there's money to make When you're hearts on your sleeve when you're getting in debt When it's pleasure and pain when you're falling away When the person you've wed has got up and left I'll cut you down and leave you for dead

Land told water and water told sky Sky told sun and sun asked why Sun asked father why sister had gone Sister had gone to look for sun Mother had died while giving birth And was buried with her child down in the dirt Dirt asked when the rain would come Rain could come when sun had gone Sun would go and rain would fall Mud would slide and children would die Slag would smother any trace of life Womb would comfort the outcast life Still some time before it's due Developed in a hurry on their honeymoon She will laugh and he will smile Friends again for at least a while Half-past five time to close the shop Business is good his wife is not Ten past six and his back at home Nothing on the telly so he's all alone She's run off with his neighbours wife Left the money in the bank but taken his life Samaritan's engaged on the telephone Piece of rope and he's never alone Not much left and the price is high Supply and demand are the judges of pride Not much room for purveyors of art Pretentious crap done without any heart Someone asked where the hope had gone Hope had gone when money had come Someone asked when Christ had died Christ he died when religion came alive Put the basket in the back and get in the car We'll beat the build up of the traffic if we get away fast Land told water and water told sky Sky told sun and sun knew why And water told land that sky would come Rain would follow after the sun Father told sun and sun asked why Why his mother had to die
15.
Hold Me Now 03:25
Hold me now, in your arms I'll rise to the bait of your feminine charms But talking and talking Won't make you understand I'd hate to love you and leave you behind It's the time of our lives Please don't cry, Please don't cry I have had my doubts from time to time I'm sorry so sorry it came out this way But shut up and listen to what I say It's the time of our lives
16.
“What’s the matter with you?” She said, she said “What’s wrong with you?”, I replied “All of a sudden I feel very quiet” So very quiet, so very quiet Very little to say, so very little point And I said, and I said “I know what you mean” She said, she said “I’ve been there before” “Eloquence in silence, so very clear” So very clear, so very clear But how could she know, could she know? “What’s the matter with you?” She said, she said “What’s wrong with you?”, I replied “All of a sudden I feel very quiet” So very quiet, so very quiet Very little to say, so very little point “Of a kin” I said. “But it can’t be the same” “What’s the matter with you?” She said. “He’s dead”

As the actress said to the Bishop, “This will only take a minute” “You must be joking” he replied, “Less than five would hurt my pride” She hid the sound of laughter by saying It’s just a matter of time, and time means money So spend as much as you can As the jet roared down the valley, bombing reds camouflaged as sheep The pilot saw angels up in the clouds, “I think I’ll join them” he said out loud Waving goodbye from his ejector seat It’s just a matter of time, and time means money So spend as much as you can They analysed all the moves and soon came to a decision It’s a strange game in the way that the only winning move is not to play Lets hope that they can keep a promise It’s just a matter of time, and time means money So spend as much as you can I’ve seen him bear that cross so many times before A cross of his own choosing, a cross of his wrong doing He should have learned by now It’s just a matter of time, and time means money So spend as much as you can
18.
She saw him from the 17th floor She cried out but he was gone He found himself on the 23rd Not wanting to stop what he’d begun Please never make this change Don’t want to loose more sleep But he’s diving in so deep His heart and mind can’t keep on taking What he is feeling And if he turned the tables he’d end up wrong Just like so many times before He tries to understand why she cries But time may heal what he never thought he had Please never make this change Don’t want to loose more sleep But he’s diving in so deep His heart and mind can’t keep on taking What he is feeling Please never make this change
19.
Happy Song 03:03
You look at me so nervously, but I'm happy now The things I feel I don't believe, but I'm happy now You make me act so hurriedly, but I'm happy now And leave you where I want to be, I'm happy now And you are true I loved you once that was in a dream, but I'm happy now You left me to search for sanity, I'm happy now You found it in everyone but me, but I'm happy now Now that's something I can believe, but I'm happy now And you are true You get a lift as I catch you up, but I'm happy now Slight to replace the sense of touch, but I'm happy now All I want is all to much, but I'm happy now I shouldn't have left it all to luck, I'm happy now And you are true
20.
Tidal Wave 02:53
You were in my dreams last night You seemed desperate and anxious to know I told you that when the dust dies they'd realise That you weren't trying to walk on water but to float It's useless to try and fight the tidal wave of hope It's useless to try and fight when only nothing lasts forever But I hope that you can prove me wrong You will be on the screen tonight Reasoning without fault and calming the storms I like you 'cause you're different, or is it a dream If this is a bluff then God help us now as we're fit to burst at the seams It's useless to try and fight the tidal wave of time It's useless to try and fight when only nothing lasts forever But I hope that you can prove me wrong You will be in the hearts and minds of millions tonight The wind from the shore is blowing a sea change I like you 'cause you're different, or is it a dream If this is a bluff then God help us now as we're fit to burst at the seams It's useless to try and fight the tidal wave of life It's useless to try and fight when only nothing lasts forever But I hope that you can prove me wrong When nothing like this can last forever But I hope that you can prove me right
21.
Looking back really isn't something you oughta do But I do and I think of you Time is passing way to fast but I waste my time thinking of the past It's the way I feel, it was something real But I've got to go. You know How I wish I could hate you How I wish I didn't care I chose the time to try to take what's mine And I try not to think of you But I do I got it wrong so what's knew a man's go to do what a mans go to do I wish I could feel that way today How I wish I could hate you How I wish I didn't care I'm feeling up and down, lost not found How I wish I could hate you How I wish I didn't care
22.
Bear Up 02:54
As I stand here alone all I can see around me Are clowns, so in love with themselves Excuse me if that’s too precise You’re well past taking my advice So just keep on sniffing away girls And here from our sponsors is the final word You’re only one of five billion people And I hope that makes you feel real small Your mind is your own cage and keeper If you find the key you’ll grow up tall And guess who I think is the cause of this disaster, it’s Clare Rayner For the population explosion how could you not blame her She took the fun out of fear of being in love The fun out of fear of being in love And that’s why I think it feels so empty And here from our sponsors is the final word You’re only one of five billion people And I hope that makes you feel real small Your mind is your own cage and keeper If you find the key you’ll grow up tall
23.
Factory 03:47
With my mouth in my heart I wake up in a sweat Remembering what might have been In my utopian dream Don’t throw stones in greenhouses You’ll only end up hurting yourself The vision is clear but yours is misting Everything I say you just keep a twisting Remembering what might have been In my utopian dream I tried to be good But it came out as God What felt like a river soon became a flood So if what I say comes out in a muddle It’s because I want you, plain and simple Remembering what might have been In my utopian dream
24.
Lift 02:50
So, that memory's the hole in your armour The feeling that you tried to hide The crime that forced your new disguise And though it always seems to show the stranger It never was quite poetry But still it said it all to me Dreams are dreams and lies are life Now I see you in a different light I used to know what I thought was right But I'm giving all up for you tonight Afraid, well so am I however often The games that always must be played The losers cover up their shame And now the dealer makes her final offer And you're the one who knows the price The hunger seen in others eyes Dreams are dreams and lies are life Now I see you in a different light I used to know what I thought was right But I'm giving all up for you tonight I know, it always had to go Now, the same remains without an answer Foolish to have ever tried A new crime and a new disguise Behind you leave the only one who listened But two can't force a revolution I know it always had to to Dreams are dreams and lies are life Now I see you in a different light I used to know what I thought was right But I'm giving all up for you tonight
25.
Kinda Pretty 03:08
26.
So I thought I'd catch you out Though I knew I never could, but I did Hard to watch your heroes fall To ignore you when you call, but you did I don't like to speculate on why you changed your mind But I do and I don't like the things I find I can't explain maybe we're too much the same And you know two can't be the same two's too many people Now it's barely on my mind Just four or five times every day, so I lied A brave and gallant sixteenth place Promotion earned a crueller fate, did you lie And I don't like to speculate on why you turned away But I do and I don't like the things I find I can't explain maybe we're too much the same And you know two can't be the same two's too many people Nearer I get the further you are Though it soon is far away, far away Dream a week of one false end If only doubt can I be sure, did you lie And I don't like to speculate on what you'd say today But I do and I'm not sure of my mind I can't explain maybe we're too much the same And you know two can't be the same two's too many people
27.
They walked up the hill hand in hand Her thoughts were pure his were bad She came back home a crying, he forgot to tell her he was only lying How soon will her mother know Now Jill has a plan for revenge To finally get even with Jack So she invited him up for a picnic and laced the well with arsenic And told him to drink deep But he’d been warned before and so he knew the score Your mother knows how, your mother knows Ask my dad he should know that your mother knows how His face was smug when she told him to go away Another win lad well done that’s what his father would say The cacophony of the explosion made her feel quite ill That she really meant to tell him she had mined the hill Just like her mother had told her Your mother knows how, your mother knows Ask my dad he should know that your mother knows how Erase him from your heart she said Erase him from your heart she said I’ve erased him for my heart as only mother knows how
28.
Turn Away 02:58
Oh Annie I haven't heard from you in a long time And I wonder where you are Oh Annie colours clash and people pass me by It's just like living from afar Three kisses and a life in me remembered Every hope and dream are slowly blown away In the wind I can here your voice it's calling me, it says Turn away like I turned Slow driving the passing of my life in a second The windscreen wet and fine in ice Slow changes freeway life and motion in the heat A touch of moonshine inner peace Three kisses and a life in me remembered Every hope and dream are slowly blown away In the wind I can here your voice it's calling me, it says Turn away like I turned Oh Annie I wish that I could let you go again Well I succeeded once before God Annie memories don't die if left alone It's just paternal me the core Three kisses and a life in me remembered Every hope and dream are slowly blown away In the wind I can here your voice it's calling me, it says Turn away like I turned like I turned away
29.
Happy Ending 02:49
Drifting through this sea of lovers damned with everlasting hunger Sin of flesh but not of soul for those whose lives have long been sold To live out life in black and white colours impotent thrust the knife Into visions and into dreams destroy the one thing I believed The saddest sight is hope subdued the fear of doubt at once renewed Reality again restored. Idols to worship, adore Just one bullet and the job is done. Just one jump and your life's begun Just one thought and the thought is you. The saddest sight is the sight of you Dream, I was so enchanted by the things you said Lies and then we parted the love between us dead Don't remember me this way forget what I had to say It didn't matter anyway you're the price I have to pay The tank is empty and the well is dry the time has come for all to decide To save the good and apportion blame but one and all deserve the same The rich man, the poor man, the wise man, the fool here and listen and obey the call Betray themselves and say it's love, admit it's lust when it's not enough Sad is a feeling when you've got no one Alone is a feeling when you've got no one Afraid is a feeling when you've got no one What is a feeling when you've got someone? Dream, I was so enchanted by the things you said Lies and then we parted the love between us dead

about

Last Will & Testament (Almost Live!)

With Ben about to jump ship and the end of the band in sight we decided to record our tunes live in the studio. Not a music studio of course but the drama annex at Collyer's College Horsham.

We played along to drum machine and second guitar parts pre-recorded to DAT onto our usual four track cassette machine. A little vocal reverb was added in the mix but nothing was replaced or overdubbed.

Twenty nine songs in one session was a gnats optimistic and we flag in places but it may be of interest as some of these songs were markedly different in their live versions and a few had benefited from a couple of years of gigging.
