Covenant: Euro (1998)

Go Film

I find myself inside a church deserted by the priests.
As shadows shift from grey to red I notice there's no floor.
Transparent air suspends my weight as if I had no mass.
Suddenly the moon comes out from the clouded skies.

Wet and cold from shifting daydreams, waking in the sleep,
Windowpane observing some commotion down below,
Waiting for the noise to come to blur the weary mind,
Watching as a pastime and I'm the fallen star.

Go film - we can all be gods.
Go film - we will all be heroes.
Go film - we are all immortal.
Go film - we will all be safe.
Go film - we are all illusions.
Go film - and we can never touch.
Go film...

I will shine again with burning light when I return.
In and out from foreign shores I've gone astray in time.
Born to search for something I have never ever seen,
On an endless quest to hostile ground and unknown lands.

Then the scene go back to where it started and I fall.
As shadows shift from red to grey I notice there's no floor.
And gravity awakes me as it throws me to the ground.
A million tiny grains of dust obscures me from your eyes.

Go film - we can all be gods.
Go film - we will all be heroes.
Go film - we are all immortal.
Go film - we will all be safe.
Go film - we are all illusions.
Go film - and we can never touch.
Go film...


Consumer

The satellites are out tonight
With grace.
Tracks of motion...

Heat on cold,
Fast on slow.

Consumer,
Hello.

The satellites are out tonight
Like dancers,
Locked in duel.

Face to face,
Out of reach.

Consumer,
Hello.
Hear me,
Hello.
Hear me out.

The satellites are out tonight
New-born stars,
Tied and bound.

Seduced by pride and want.
Consumer or consumed?


Tension

I'm in control in this domain.
I feel at home inside the maze.
It keeps me safe, it keeps me clean.
I step aside into the shade.
I'm here to watch, to read the signs.
I walk alone, i go unseen.
From place to place in fading light
I move ahead along the tracks.

Pre-millenial tension,
Your premonition,
Your guillotine.

There's something wrong, you feel it too.
I read your mind an open book.
I sense your fear, it's in your bones -
A grinding stone, a crushing load.
You dream at night in shallow sleep
The demon's breath is in the air.
It will not pass, these are the days.
So pay attention, you are not alone.

Pre-millenial tension,
Your premonition,
Your guillotine.
