British standard approved (1985)

First class  4:51
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

The sellout clothes they wear
Still fit the new line
Blood's thicker than water
So they say
It isn't what you know
But who you are
Where you've been
And what you've got

A first class ticket to the other side
That's what they all want
That's what they're all after
A first class ticket to the other side
That's what they all want
That's what they're all after

The school for boys taught
When to ride the waves
There's so much distance in between
The league of gentlemen
Still practice what they preach
And find contentment with their peers
No way you'll find them
On the wrong side of the street
That would never be their style

Cold in the air  2:58
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Through the cold in the air
I breathe the fear you're feeling
Break free catch up with them now

Of course I was the best in my day
Built to survive
You've turned out that way

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

Second stage  3:21

Proxima  2:51
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Slip through the net
You're on your own
Crossing the water
With all the blue lights on
It's what you say
And what you do
Make for the change in the end

Sensing the warm glow
Got the picture now
Watching a star go out in the black hole
It's what you say
And what you do
Make for the change in the end

Proxima Centauri
Proxima Centauri

Waiting for the answer too long
Constant reminder too long
It's what you say
And what you do
Make for the change in the end

Approaching the centre
Got to think again
Scratching the surface
No beginning to end
It's what you say
And what you do
Make for the change in the end

Proxima Centauri
Proxima Centauri
Proxima Centauri

The link (part 1&2)  6:54
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

It was there all the time
just couldn't make the shape
The room for expansion
Play through the gate
You were so nearly right
You were too damn close
You could have walked on the water
You never settled for less like most
We took the stage further in the extreme
For the featured awakening
A stand in between

Behind it all there's so much more
Behind it all there's so much more

Born out of chaos, grew through the dust
The force of emotion, really screwed us up
Left at loose ends, return to the screen
Pushed back the limits, caught sight of the dream

Behind it all there's so much more
Behind it all there's so much more
Behind it all we see so much more

So much more for us to say
So much more for us
So much more for us to see
So much more for us

From the ship on the water
To new shifts in space
The true potential
Was staring us in the face
Froze to perfection
All senses preserved
Await the grand opening
As you waver the nerve

Behind it all there's so much more
Behind it all there's so much more
Behind it all we see so much more
Behind it all there's so much more

New ground  6:22
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Seeing things now
No one has seen
Am I so unique?
Will they know what I mean?

Standing on new ground
Standing on new ground

Changes were made
Outraced the light
Feeling no fear
Only wonder
In the eyes of it all
All nothing and this
We tore down the shadows
You didn't exist

Standing on new ground
Standing on new ground
Standing on new ground
Standing on new ground
So many memories

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

Wonderland  4:40
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Still they dig for gold
Fooled on city streets
With no regard for mine
We watch the same repeats
Repeat the same mistakes
And swore we'd get it right next time

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

We gave all hope and house
Giro's to Khyber Pass
No one wants to live next door
Who runs the northern line?
Who rules the Union Jack?
Nothing's really cricket, watch the score

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

After all we heard it all before
And still the wheels go round
And for all the changes that were made
British standard, where's the standard?

The Chinese take-away
On empire's striking back
Watch clockwork soldiers fall in line
Land of hope and glory
Ruled by class
Still the British way of life

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

Hemispheres (British standard approved)  7:02
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

There are spaces in my mind
It's a fine line
So many places I have seen
Is this my time?

Eight ninths below the waterline
Out of my hands
Eight ninths below the waterline
Oh no

Another child left in the cold
Taken chances
Just breaking up inside
After all this

Never thought
Turn out like this
Where's the reason?
So much to give
Nothing left of me
Oh no

Take a look at me now
I'm a part of it all
Take a look at me now
Oh, I've become

God bless Her Majesty
God bless Her Majesty
God bless

As I stand here all alone
For one moment
I think of how it might have been
The other time

Eight ninths below the waterline
Out of my hands
Eight ninths below the waterline

Take a look at me now
I'm a part of it all
Take a look at me now
Oh, I've become

God bless Her Majesty
God bless Her Majesty
Long live Her Majesty
Die for Her Majesty
God bless Her Majesty
God bless Her Majesty

The only sane man  5:42
(Live) [Bonus track]
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down

I've tried to come to terms with it all
Has it really gone this far
Love suspended frozen in a jar
I never did belong
They're staring back at me from inside the cage
I'm staring back at me
The ape's coming of age

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down

Why offer stimulation to a lost cause
You drive the nails in
Oh I can't take anymore
I'm the last one survivor I took you all
I'm the rare breed the cast off
Come on break the mould

I can't come down
It's gone too far
Oh I can't come down
It makes no sense
Just wasted words
Oh I can't come down
