DEMON
Anthology (1991)

Night of the Demon  3:16
(remix '88)
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

There's a scream in the night
There's death on the wind
And a heartbeat that's pounding like rain
There's a flash in the sky
A cry of a hound
As if someone is wailing the dead

And the nightmare begins as the Devil rides out
From the heat thru the gates of Hell
And there's no escape from the curse of the damned
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

Better lock up your doors
And get off the streets
If you fear for the reaper of souls
For they say when he rides he never returns
Till he's paid back the debt that he owes

So beware of the night
As the darkness descends the terror's about to unfold
And pray that your life will be spared of the fate
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

And the nightmare begins as the Devil rides out
From the heat thru the gates of Hell
And there's no escape from the curse of the damned
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

Into the nightmare  3:58
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Don't close your eyes they'll never wake you
You're into the nightmare
Beware the dreaded sleep don't let it take you
For this is the nightmare

Your mind begins to drift away
You try to fight but now you know it's too late
The power's to great
Your losing control they've taken your soul

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Spirits on the wall they're growing taller
You're into the nightmare
The madcap voice that moans for you to follow
Into the nightmare

Run for your life no place to go
The naked truth is now on show to us all
You've taken a fall
The phantoms of night your too weak to fight

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare

Your mind begins to drift away
You try to fight but now you know it's too late
The power's to great
Your losing control they've taken your soul

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Father of time  4:09
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

In the beginning he gave us the word
But a voice in the wilderness
Can never be heard
So he called for a father of time
Called on the father of time

I guess you've all heard of me
I count the cost
I was there at Calvary
When he died on that cross
I'm the father of time
I'm your father of time

And the world needs me now
Like never before
And the world needs me now
Like never before

I make the predictions
I am your fate
But when you're running with progress
You hear me too late
I'm the father of time
Yes I'm your father of time

And the world needs me now
Like never before
And the world needs me now
Like never before

Now I see destruction
Flames burnin' high
No need for the word now
No father of time
I'm the father of time
Yes I'm your father of time

And the world needs me now
Like never before
And the world needs me now
Like never before

Don't break the circle  4:53
(remix '88)
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle

Concentrate!
I'm your contact link across the great divide
Many voices in my ear
Hold on I think there's something coming through
From the other side. It's for all those who believe
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle

Unexplained
Many things we thought were lost may come to light
On a higher plain in the spirit world
Where only a few of us possess the second sight
Now the messenger awaits
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle must keep going on and on.

But wait
Is there one amongst us here who disbelieves?
A stranger to the sign
Take care, for all the things you fear
May be revealed
Within the forces of the night
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
The circle must keep going on and on
The circle must keep going on and on

The spell  3:40
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Take your place in the circle
Watch the mystery unwind
One cup of your lifeblood
Two parts of your mind
Thirteen faceless disciples
ln a room froze with fear
Summoned there by the master
Then he appears

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.
Under the spell

Dances at midnight
Naked but for the mask
Feasting Heaven's destructionThe spell has been cast
The power is total
Eclipse of the Son
Evil forces are strongest
His will to be done

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.
Under the spell

We all bear witness
To the ritual of life
While some choose to follow
The shadows of night
Forever banished in darkness
For those who've taken the vow
These things are of your own doing
You'll pay for it now

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.
Under the spell

Sign of a madman  4:30
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Somewhere inside a raging storm
Is waiting to be free
The balance hangs on one slim thread
A twisted nerve could blow it
All around the heat is on
Confusion. Confusion
A finger hitches on a trigger
Another mark of the gun

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

An insane act where genius reigned
The traitor came to light
He swore you were the chosen one
Who'd come to take his place
Now it seems you're showing signs
Of stress. Distress
The sentence passed upon yourself
There's no way out of here

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

How does it feel to be alone in there
How does it feel to be alone in there
Nothing is real now you're alone in there
Nothing is real now you're alone in there

You're all alone in a crowded room
Surrounded by your fate
In the grip of all your plans
You didn't even know it
Now the shadows hide the one
Who lies in wait
Looking for a place in history
How many more like you?

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything
It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

The plague  6:17
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Begin the madness
Tear down the sign
Ideals and values
They use to keep us in line

Turn a blind eye to jobless millions
Queues of wreckage to be broken down
Leaders feed us their solutions
Mistakes the death cart clears away

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

A pig for power
Misplacing trust
Science moves fact to fiction
Disturbing dust

All this in the name of progress
While our existence is sold downstream
Religion plays upon the ruin
While Manson throws away the key

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

Don't look at me
I'm not the answer
Look to you
It's where it's at

Don't look at me
I'm not the saviour
It's up to you
To face yourself

What price the future
And Orwell's dream
All yours big brother
On twenty two inch screen

The tragedy we bleed human
Can't feed emotion to the zombie brain
And as the rat becomes exhausted
We stand to lose the game

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

Nowhere to run  5:03
(alternative mix)
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Nowhere to run
No place left to hide
Nowhere to run
No place left to hide

I just can't believe it
What a waste
What the hell has gone on here
This devastated place
Thought this was buried with Dachau
But there's new blood on the tracks
Outside the city
They're shooting people out of fear

Nowhere to run
No place left to hide
Nowhere to run
No place left to hide

Broken lambs to the slaughter
Soiled red like the sea
In the land of the holy
The Devil runs free
No dignity in death now
As they litter the streets
What's for the living
They'll build you up to knock you down again

Nowhere to run
No place left to hide

Shadows cast upon this land
A black cloth drapes a promise land
Shadows cast upon this land
A black cloth drapes a promise land

Blackheath  4:45
(alternative mix)
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Take a seat we've got it made
You're moved to precision
We're all sold out of human rights
It's made your decision
Keep belief in avoiding wars
Keep faith in Santa Claus
Feel free the first time in your life
Give yourself away

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play

On your admission the ride is free
Whatever takes your fancy
It's time to change your life support
We've got the future bottled
One chance to get away from it all
What a way to go
No more fear from crazy toys
We got the answer

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play

Touching the ice  4:50
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Heading in the new direction
Old bulldogs had its day
Steel wheels moving in slow motion
Think it's time to take our place

Let's rattle the cage
Work the machine
Let'em know who you are
Shine to be seen

Crushed the cold hands of tradition
Who cares where you come from?
We're receivers of progression
Not signals out of phase

The mood on the street
Can't hold the line
To where will it lead?
Move on the tide

We are touching the whole human race
We are touching now
We are touching a time and a place
We are touching now

Touching, touching
Touching, touching

As we race to meet the future
A generation after face
Knowing nothing's really certain
Only the chance we gotta take

Don't need the disguise
To hide the mistakes
Rather run 'gainst the odds
Than sail on the waste
From the start of the gun
To the crossing of tape
In the eyes of the world
There's no escape

We are touching the whole human race
We are touching now
We are touching a time and a place
We are touching now

From the outside  5:38
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Another hand has turned
Across the face of time
Reaching out somewhere beyond
We're on the outside
Looking back at you
There's so much more to black and white

No more heroes they're left behind
Silent running
Turned full circle a high in the sky
Watching waiting

It's up to you to see it through
It's up to you to see it through
And if you're new, you'll see it through
And if you're new, you'll see it through

Free the memories, images are formed
Lightning switch across the lens
The line of forces travels in material waves
The spirit the crowded sometimes sense
One dimension, real world and the stage
Communication
Take advances as though men were more
Changing tempo

It's up to you to see it through
It's up to you to see it through
And if you're new, you'll see it through
And if you're new, you'll see it through

Together now we know we are
Togethet we are
Together what we speak we see
Together we see

Heart of our time  3:56
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

All around
So much change is taking place
Everywhere
We're moving in a different way
All around
You can feel the wind of change
It's out there
On the streets
It's beyond the wildest dreams
Can't imagine

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Here we are
About to take the biggest step
The heat is on
Maybe we can make it yet
Reaching out
Trying to make the other side
What we're after
Face to face
Waiting for the moment when
We stand there

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

It's the only way there is
We have a chance to put things right
Gotta leave the darkest road
And head into the light

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Crossfire  4:20
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Caught us standing in the crossfire

Don't make a move
The tension is rising
It's a suicide trip
No time for heroes
The runaway's a frightening sight
Staring through bloodshot eyes

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Caught us standing in the crossfire

We'd have been there by now
Breathing the free air
I'd waited so long
To walk in the sunshine
It's all someone else's fight
Who the hell's got the God given right?

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Held a gun against my head
Demanded some strange destination
Some poor souls been left for dead

So while you think of me
Remember this
If freedom's worth fighting for
Don't give in

Caught us standing in the crossfire
Held a gun against my head
Demanded some strange destination
Some poor souls been left for dead

Life on the wire  5:40
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Through the morning mist I hear the jungle drum
Concrete hugs against the sky
Like a needle searching for the vein
It feels so cold
Wish I was high

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

No more waiting something had to give
And when it came a strange release
I never really knew if it was in my brain
Until the day I went too far

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other way

A stage door pass for friends
Amongst the garbage cans
Just old soldiers calling time
The smell of meths runs high
Across this stinking waste
Is it any place to die?

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other way

Breakout  4:38
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Head for the underground
Leave all the creatures to play
No-one ever goes there anymore
The rats on holiday
We can stay for a short while here
You're on of the privileged few
When it's over make up your own mind
What you wanna do

Now we're breaking with the past
Living dangerously once more
We're going across the line

Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Don't look back
There's nothing but
Builders dreams in sinking sand
Don't make waves for someone else
It's not the time to make a stand

See the lights in the distance
Gleaming pillars of steal
It's time to take off the new disguise
There's nothing left to fear
They'll be hiding till the battle dies down
There's so much depending on you
We dare not make a mistake at this level
We all have to get through

Now we're breaking with the past
Living dangerously once more
We're going across the line

Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Don't look back
There's nothing but
Builders dreams in sinking sand
Don't make waves for someone else
It's not the time to make a stand

Hollywood  4:58
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Hey you pretty boys and girls
D'ya really wanna make it?
I like the sexy ones
With the long blond curles
We'll supply the make-up
You don't need to know a thing about rock'n'roll
The record's already a hit
There's been a million sold

Straight out of Hollywood
Like all of our heroes
Straight out of Hollywood
We're going to the Rock Show
We're gonna take you all the way
Down Sunset Boulevard
We'll spare no extravagance
Straight out of Hollywood

Do you all wanna play some rock'n'roll?
Do you all wanna stand out in the light?
Who wants to drive a Cadillac?
Who wants to live in Beverly Hills?

Straight out of Hollywood
Like all of our heroes
Straight out of Hollywood
We're going to the Rock Show
We're gonna take you all the way
Down Sunset Boulevard
We'll spare no extravagance
Straight out of Hollywood

England's glory  3:38
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Churchill had a sign for it
Nelson lost an eye for it
Shakespeare wrote the words
We all salute you

The Beatles rocked the world with hits
Errol Flynn starred in it
Rolls Royce made the others sick
We're still making history

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

Drake he sank the Spanish ships
Her majesty reigns over it
Remember world cup sixty six
And dear Bobby Charlton
The Rockers and the Mods
Blackpool and its Tower
Morecamb and the wise
Sir Lawrence Olivier

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hour

Robin and his merry men
The hall of fame at No. 10
Guy Fawkes lit the Parliament
And went for the big one
Henry and his wives
Rupert is bear
Richard of the round
And Billy Smarts Circus

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hour

All the Hooray Henrys go to Oxford and Cambridge
While the working class build the motorways
The Royals choose their brides while they're out
Playing Polo but no-one gives a damn cause we like it that way

Maggie's kept the boys in place
Prince Charles grows a Monarch's face
Concorde roars and sets the pace, the reading of the Times
Tales of Sherlock Holmes, it's great to be British

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hour
