I. Erotomania

II. Voices

Instrumental Intro

Verse 1

'Love, just don't stare!'
He used to say to me
Every Sunday morning
The spider in the window
The angel in the pool
The old man takes the poison
Now the widow makes the rules

'So speak, I'm right here!'
She used to say to me
Not a word, not a word
Judas on the ceiling
The Devil in my bed
I guess Easter's never coming
So I'll just wait inside my head

Before chorus

Like a scream but sort of silent
Living off my nightmares!

Chorus

Voices repeating me!
"Feeling threatened? We reflect your hopes and fears."
Voices discussing me!
"Others steal your thoughts
They're not confined within your mind."

Verse 2

Thought disorder, dream control!
Now they read my mind on the radio
But where was the Garden of Eden?
I feel elated, I feel depressed
Sex is death, Death is sex
Says it right here on my Crucifix

Before chorus

Like a scream but sort of silent
Living off my nightmares!

Chorus

Voices protecting me!
"Good behavior brings the Savior to his knees"
Voices rejecting me!
"Others steal your thoughts
They're not confined to your own mind"

BreakdownDialogue by rap artist Prix-mo reading from the book "Cultural Revolution"

"I don't want to be here, cause of my
Suffering, cause of my illness
Only love is worth having, only
Love is what matters, loving every
People on equal terms!
"You've got to know who you're
Dealin' with because, like a stranger
A-heh, just might come in through
Here with a gun... and then, what
Would you do? [Heh.
Everything is immaterial!
'n' you know that reality is immaterial!
This is not reality!"

Verse 3

I'm kneeling on the floor
Staring at the wall
Like the spider in the window
I wish that I could speak

Is there fantasy in refuge?
God in politicians?
Should I turn on my religion?
These demons in my head tell me to!
I'm lying here in bed
Swear my skin is inside out
Just another Sunday morning
Seen my diary on the newsstand
Seems we've lost the truth to quicksand
It's a shame no one is praying
Cause these voices in my head keep saying:

"Love, just don't stare
Reveal the Word when you're supposed to"
Withdrawn and introverted
Infectiously perverted
"Being laughed at and confused
Keeps us pleasantly amused enough to stay"

Guitar Solo

Bridge

Maybe I'm just Cassandra fleeting
Twentieth century Icon bleeding
Willing to risk Salvation
To escape from isolation
I'm witness to redemption
Heard you speak but never listened
Can you rid me of my secrets?
Deliver us from Darkness?

Chorus

Voices repeating me!
"Feeling threatened? We reflect your hopes and fears."
Voices discussing me!
Don't expect your own Messiah!
This neverworld which you desire
Is only in your mind

III. The Silent Man

Verse 1

A question well served:
Is silence like a fever?
A voice never heard
Or a message with no receiver?

Before chorus 1

Pray they won't ask
Behind the stained glass
There's always one more mask

Verse 2

Has man been a victim
Of his woman, of his father?
If he elects not to bother
Will he suffocate their faith?

Before chorus 2

Desperate to fall
Behind the great wall
That separates us all

Chorus

When there is reason [Tonight I'm awake
Tonight I'm awake [The silent man
When there's no answer
Arrive the silent man
If there is balance [Tonight he's awake
Tonight he's awake [The silent man
If they have to suffer
There lies the silent man

Instrumental Break

Guitar Solo

Verse 3

Sin without deceivers
A God with no believers
I could sail by on the winds of silence
And maybe they won't notice
But this time I think it'd be better if I swim

Chorus

When there is reason [Tonight I'm awake
Tonight I'm awake [The silent man
When there's no answer
Arrive the silent man
If there is balance [Tonight he's awake
Tonight he's awake [The silent man
If they have to suffer
There lies the silent man!
