Take Control Of You
(John DuCann/Clara DuCann)

Bright Lights They Shine Down On You,
Have They Really Come To Take You Away?
White Coats, They Lurch Over You,
You're Scared But Not Afraid, Not Afraid.

You Will Be Taken Over,
Take Control Of You.

Making A Mess Out Of You,
Black Sensors Broken As They Take It Away.
Dark Days in Cold Rooms,
Many Foreign Objects Getting Out Of My Way, Out Of The Way.

They Are Taking You Over,
You Will Be Taken Over,
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You!

Don't Fight, They Take Control Of You.
Too Late, You're Never Going To Get Away.
No One Will Ever Know A Thing,
They Won't Know, They Come To Take You Today, Take Today.

You Have Been Taken Over,
They Have Taken You Over,
They Have Taken You Over,
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.
Take Control Of You, Control Of You.

Take Control, Take Control, Take Control - Of You!


She's My Woman
(John DuCann)

I Tried All Night To Get It Right
But It's So Hot, She Was So Uptight.
It Can't Be Something I Could Have Said,
But It's So Hard To Get It Through Her Head.

But Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman.
But Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman.

Just The Other Morning She Was Feeling Fine,
So I Put On Something She Wouldn't Mind.
She Pretended That She Didn't See,
It's All A Game That's Scary For Me.

But Then She, Oh She, She Is My Woman.
But Then She, Oh She, She Is My Woman.
(And There Ain't Nothing I Can Do About It)

She Gets Me Alone When She Says She Feels High,
But It's Scary For Me, She's A Real Born Liar.
She Does Something She Can't Control,
But I Can Do So Much To Let Her Know.

No, No, No, No.

Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman, My Woman.
Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman, My Woman.
Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman, My Woman.
Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman, My Woman.
Then She, Oh She,She Is My Woman, My Woman.
My Woman, My Woman, My Woman, My Woman.


He Did It Again
(Vincent Crane/John DuCann)

Did It Again.

Monday Morning, Distant Weekend,
Always The Same, 'Cos He Did It Again.

Tuesday Lunchtime, Thoughts Are Changing.
Said He'd Pack It In, But He Did It Again.

What's The Matter, What's The Matter?
Does He Have To Do It Over Again?
What's The Matter, What's The Matter?
Does He Have To Start All Over Again?
Does He Have To Do It Over Again?
Over Again - It's Over.

But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.
But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.

Wednesday Waiting, No Creating.
Waited So Long, But He Did It Again.

Thursday Thinking, Friday Praying.
Every Week He Always Does It Again.

But He Did It Again - It's Over.

But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.
But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.
But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.
But He Did It Again, He Did It Again.


Where's The Show
(John DuCann)

Well There's A Rumour That's A-Going Around,
There's Lots Of People Trying To Put Me Down,
But I Don't Let That Bother Me.

I Guess I'm Not The Worrying Kind,
I Kind Of Like To Leave The Trash Behind,
But They're All Ganging Up On Me.

So Where's The Show?
Oh Where's The Show?
If I Have The Chance I'll Use It.
So Where's The Show?
Oh Where's The Show?
The Boys Have Come, So I'll Prove It.

It's Been A Very Disappionting Year,
Didn't Get The Money And My Rent's In Arrear,
And Now The Boys Have Come Round To See.

It's Not The Fact That There's Something Wrong,
I've Been Around, This Time That Long.
But Now I Guess It's Time To See.

So Where's The Show?
Oh Where's The Show?
If I Have The Chance I'll Use It.
So Where's The Show?
I've Got To Know.
The Boys Have Come, So I'll Prove It.

So Where's The Show?
Oh Where's The Show?
If I Have The Chance I'll Use It.
So Where's The Show?
Oh Where's The Show?
The Boys Have Come, So I'll Prove It.

Where's The Show?
Where's The Show?
Where's The Show?
I've Got To Know.

Where's The Show?
Where's The Show?
Where's The Show?
I've Got To Know.

Where's The Show?
Where's The Show?


In The Shadows
(John DuCann)

You Sink, You Won't Go Out.
You're So Afraid What Might Swallow You.
Been Living In The Shadows.

What You Think, It Frightens You,
To Really Get To You.
What's Hiding, In The Shadows?
What's Lurking, In The Shadows?

You Don't Go Out At Night.
You Say The Dark Is Really Following You.
Well Think, What Is The Reason.

There's No Escape, Nowhere To Turn,
So Will It Get To You.
What's Hiding, In The Shadows?
Existing, In The Shadows?
What's Deep Down,In The Shadows?
What's Lurking, In The Shadows?

In The Shadows, In The Shadows,
In The Shadows, In The Shadows.

Deep Down Below You're Gonna Find,
The Thing That's Haunting You.
Well, Is It So Very Frightening?

Is It You, But No One Else,
You Might Allow Get To You?
While Hiding In The Shadows.
Existing In The Shadows.
Deep Down In The Shadows.
What's Lurking In The Shadows?

Have You Thought Of What You're Gonna Do?
Have You Thought Is There An End To It All?
Are You Going To Let It Get To You,
Steal Your Mind Away, Your Time Away?

What Awaits? In The Shadows.
What's Hiding? In The Shadows.
Hiding In The Shadows,
Living In The Shadows,
Existing In The Shadows,
It's Deep Down In The Shadows.

In the Shadows, In The Shadows.

Have You Thought Of What You're Gonna Do?
Have You Thought Is There An End To It All?
Are You Going To Let It Get To You,
Steal Your Mind Away, Your Time Away,
Your Mind Astray?

Hiding, In The Shadows,
Existing, In The Shadows.
It's Deep Down, In The Shadows.
It's Deep Down, In The Shadows.

It's So Cold, It's So Stark,
It's So Alone, It's So Dark,
It's So Dead, It's So Grey.
There's No Chance, There's No Way.

Deep Down, In The Shadows.
Dying, In The Shadows.
Lurking, In The Shadows.
Evil, In The Shadows.
What's Hiding, In The Shadows.
Evil, In The Shadows.
Deep Down, In The Shadows.
What's Lurking, In The Shadows.

In The Shadows, In The Shadows.
In The Shadows, In The Shadows.


Do You Know Who's Looking For You
(John DuCann/Vincent Crane)

When You Think It's Safe, And You're Out At Night.
Be Careful, Will You Know What To Do?

There's Times You Hide, When There's Footsteps Behind.
Is Anybody Looking For You?

Try To Run, But You're Out Of Breath.
So You Turn And There's No One In View.

Walk On Humming, Hear The Footsteps Start.
Do You Know Who's Looking For You?

Ducking Into Alleys, Hiding In A Dark Doorway.
Hope You Don't Get Spotted 'Cos There's No Way Out.
Dare Not To Breathe, Did You Know Who's Listening?
A Hand Touches You, But You Can't Cry Out, Cry Out.

You're Scared To Death And You're Nerves' On Edge,
No Escape, Does It Mean That You're Through?
Deep Inside Your Heart Begins To Pound.
Do You Know Who's Looking For You?

You've Got To Run, You Have No Choice,
And A Shadow Jumps Out Of The Blue.
You See His Face And The Terror Strikes,
Now You Know Who's Looking For You!

Ducking Into Alleys, Hiding In A Dark Doorway.
Hope You Don't Get Spotted 'Cos There's No Way Out.
Dare Not To Breathe, Did You Know Who's Listening?
A Hand Touches You But You Can't Cry Out,Cry Out.

When You Think It's Safe,When You're Out At Night.
Be Careful, Will You Know What To Do?
Time To Hide When There's Footsteps Behind.
Is Anybody Looking For You?

They're Looking For You!
Do You Know Who's Looking For You?
They're Looking For You!
Do You Know Who's Looking For You?
They're Looking For You!
They're Looking For You!

Now You Know Who's Looking For You.
They're Looking For You!
Now You Know Who's Looking For You.
Now You Know Who's Looking For You.
Now You Know Who's Looking For You.
They're Looking For You! - You!

I Can't Stand It
(John DuCann)

Please Go away, I Want To Be Alone,
Don't Need No Help To Carry On.
See Anyway, I Rue This Worthless Way,
See Me Through This Lousy Day.

I Just Can't Stand It Here With You.

Since You Came Along To Make The Change,
I Was Always Happy Then.
Evil Eyes And Your Messy Ways,
Can I Get Out While I Can?

I Just Can't Stand It Here With You.

With All Your Nasty Ways You Come Through
For Another Day, It Was You
Made Me Change My Life, And It's True
I Want To Be Alone Without You.
You Made My Day So Blue,
I Don't Need You Anymore.

Equal Now, With Such A Waste Of Time,
I Want To Leave It All Behind.
Ain't No Sense For You To Hang Around,
Get Out Of Here, Don't Want You Now.

I Just Can't Stand It Here With You.

With All Your Nasty Ways, You Come Through
For Another Day, It Was You
Made My Life, And It's True
I Want To Be Alone Without You,
You Made My Day So Blue,
I Don't Need You Anymore.

I Just Can't Stand It,
I Don't Need You Anymore.
I Just Can't Stand It,
I Don't Need You Anymore.

With All Your Nasty Ways, You Come Through
For Another Day, It Was You
Made My Life, And It's True
I Want To Be Alone Without You,
You Made My day So Blue,
I Don't Need You Anymore.

I Just Can't Stand It,
Don't Need You Anymore.
I Just Can't Stand It,
Don't Need You Anymore.

Throw Your Life Away
(John DuCann/Vincent Crane)

I've Started To Think A Lot About You
And I've Got Quite A Lot To Say.
I've Started To See Things Clearly Now
That You're Throwing Your Life Away.

Been Watching You Wasting Your Time With A Fix,
Sew The Needle And The Time Of Day,
They Had A Good Chance To Wreck Your Life,
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!

Throw Your Life Away?
No, I Just Want To Talk With You
Throw Your Life Away?
Don't Be Proud Of The Thing They Do.
Throw Your Life Away?
No, I Just Want To Talk To You.
Throw Your Life Away?
Don't Be Proud Of The Things That They Do.

Give Me A Chance To Show My Hand
And I'll Give You Chance To Stay.
You've Been Fooling Around Far Too Long,
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!

Never To Late Too Change It All,
It's Never Late To Change Your Ways.
Give It Some Thought And Throw Your Past,
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!

Throw Your Life Away?
No, I Just Want To Talk To You.
Throw Your Life Away?
No, I've Got Other Things To Do.
Throw Your Life Away?
No, I Just Want To Talk To You.
Throw Your Life Away?
Don't Be Proud Of The Things That They Do.

I've Started To Think A Lot About You
And I've Got Quite A Lot To Say.
I'm Starting To See Things Clearly Now
That You're Throwing Your Life Away.

Been Watching You Waste Your Time With A Fix
Sew The Needle And The Time Of Day,
They Had A Good Chance To Wreck Your Life.
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!

Throwing Your Life Away. No, No.
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!
Throwing Your Life Away. No, No.
Stop Throwing Your Life Away!
