In The Dark 02:12
In the dark, take me by the hand Lead me to another land Promises, too soon to make Fragile feelings too soon to break In the dark (x2) In the dark, flying through space I can see your terrified face I realize why we're here The future really is not too clear In the dark (x2) In the dark (x2) Where's the light, in the dark Where's the light, I'm in the dark Lyrics: Marc (c) 1981 Syntax Music Just For The Moment Eyes are lined with respectable lies Floating backward 'til it cries Function stops, in walks conflict (x3) Lives are lined with forgettable ties Forced emotion 'til it dies Nothing's said, I'm forgotten (just for the moment) x4 Just for the moment (x4)

Face 02:41
White men, some wear silver, some wear gold Clean men, some are new, some are old They bite, they smile, they can scare Deciduous existence is not fair Two men, one can see, one cannot Blue men, I can't help what I got They sleep, they stare, they can cry One thing's for certain, they can't lie There's too many people that I can't ... There's too many people that I can't ... There's too many people that I can't ... Face, face

Acting too much, can't feel no more Jumping in circles, can't play no more No more time, no more time No more time for circles (x2) Talking too much gets through no more Running in circles, can't focus no more No more time, no more time No more time for circles (x2) Jumping in circles, hit the floor Running in circles, can't find the door No more time, no more time No more time for circles (x2) No more rhyme (no more circles) No more crime (no more circles) No more crime (no more circles)

Sentinels guard the enemy thoughts And stare each other down All is open but nothing's revealed They wait for each other to open fire Action, action and reaction They walk in pairs Action, action and reaction They walk in pairs Courage hides and lies are heroes Talk, no cares, they walk in pairs Feelings flee, discuss what remains Talk, no cares, they walk in pairs Action, action and reaction They walk in pairs Action, talk no cares They walk in pairs Action, talk no cares They walk in pairs

Don't tell me tomorrow Don't tell me maybe Because you know I won't be happy Till I get what I need (repeat 1st verse) Everyone's got lots of money Everyone's got lots of love Everyone's got a happy family That's what they tell me That's what they tell me (repeat 2nd verse) (repeat 1st verse) (repeat 2nd verse)
