Shortcut To Somewhere (Banks/Fish) 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

He was a fallen angel from the Tower of Babble
Strung out on the high wire
Another skyline drifter an immaculate stranger
A legend for the wild west end
So when you're running in the slipstream of the ratrace veterans
Only one thing left to do
Take a breath slide away Quicksilver
The clean cut easy way through

It's no Easy Rider ain't no Midnight Cowboy
Took his place at the starting line
Cos he left you behind with his reputation
Lone Ranger still fresh in our minds
So when you've worked out the problems and you've worked out the angles
And you've worked out what you wanted to do
Take a breath slide away Quicksilver
The only style that you ever knew
That you ever knew

Everyone's wanting a shortcut to somewhere
Everyone's needing someone to look up to
Everyone's looking for somebody's hero
Are they nowhere to be found?
- Are they nowhere to be found?

With the high heels clicking out the avenue semaphore
Tapping out a serious distress
To yesterdays zeros those reluctant young heroes
Need a light to lead them out of this mess
So when you're running in the slipstream of the ratrace veterans
Only one thing left to do
Take a breath slide away Quicksilver
It's a clean cut easy way through

He was a fallen angel from the Tower of Babble
Strung up on the high wire
Another skyline drifter an immaculate stranger
A legend for the wild west end
So when you've worked out the problems and you've worked out the angles
And you've worked out what you wanted to do
Take a breath slide away Quicksilver
The only style that you ever knew
That you ever knew

Everyone's wanting a shortcut to somewhere
Everyone's needing someone to look up to
Everyone's looking for somebody's hero
Are they nowhere to be found?

You Call This Victory (Banks/Diamond) 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

You call this victory you say the battle's won
You call this justice when without her there's no sun
You call this freedom, well you make up your own mind
I call this madness looking from the other side

When this thing started
It was more than just a dream, that kept us warm
Through every crazy moment we pushed on
Searching for the perfect sky
To be as one again
As one together we would fly

You call this victory you say the battle's won
You call this justice when without her there's no sun
You call this freedom, well you make up your own mind
I call this madness looking from the other side

Now I must get ready
To face up to what I see now is the truth
I need to see your eyes again on fire
And hear the beating of your heart
We had so little time
So little time for turning back
I know it's oh so easy to forget
And I know it's oh so easy to regret
And maybe time can take this fear away
Reminding me you were so sure
You had the key and you had found the door
Hey lady -

You call this victory you say the battle's won
You call this justice when without her there's no sun
You call this freedom, well you make up your own mind
I call this madness looking from the other side

You call this victory...

Lion Of Symmetry (Banks/Wilcox) 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The stars ignite as the sun sets
And disappears in a river of dancing molten gold
In the moon rise the lion steps out tonight

No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains

The office walls are closing in
As the telex machines perversely sing ignored
You're hypnotised and the lion roars within

No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains
Why are we here? Not just to live and breathe
I cannot sleep, I need the beast
I need some action, I need destruction
I'll return to the wild, I'll return to the child I said
No sense of emotion adrift in the ocean
Here we are knee-deep in stars, knee-deep in stars

City nights caressed in a shroud
All is quiet and the silence is tentatively loud
You kiss the streets as you crawl on your hands and feet

No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains

Why are we here? Not just to live and breathe
I cannot sleep, I need the beast
I need some action, I need destruction
I'll return to the wild, I'll return to the child I said
No sense of emotion adrift in the ocean
Here we are knee-deep in stars, knee-deep in stars

Moving in the darkness
Phosphorus eyes, jungle pride
A glisten of madness, a wave of sadness
The lion never sleeps, he's never at peace
He stalks so boldly, so nervous, so coldly
Vicious serenity, perverse intensity
Head bowed stretched proudly, embrace the earth
Same blood, same soul, same breath, same goal

The office walls are closing in, feel the sensation
Telex machines perversely sing raw communication
And you're hypnotised, a transformation
The lion steps out tonight

And you kiss the damp streets with ease
As you crawl on your hands and feet
Naked is the beast and the beast is forever free
You are the lion, you are the lion of symmetry
Golden warrior savage, savage creature
You are the lion, you are the lion of symmetry

No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains...
