Betrayed 03:04
Thoughts of mine, so plain to see Precious art or facsimile? No-one laughs and no-one cries Words are betrayed by their eyes I said I wanted to be you You said there’s nothing to do I said I wanted to be here You said there’s nothing to fear I said I want to believe you You said that I didn’t need to I said… You said… We said… I want to believe you I have a pain, a tear in my heart About a dream—when will it start? Another year, they disappear Words are difficult to hear

Fools 03:46
I said to you You said to me What should we do? What should we see? It’s not my fault It’s not my line Don’t call a halt This love is mine These games you play don’t know the rules Make further plans and act like fools I said I know You said you’d leave Where should we go? Where should we grieve? No second chance No second place Don’t stop the dance Don’t end the race

Another one, just for fun Playing with a loaded gun A rush, a thrill, a silent kill Swallowing a bitter pill From the depths, your only power Flying at 90 miles per hour Words are said with eyes ablaze On memories long lost in haze Here it ends, with slamming doors A final act with pointless scores From the depths, your only power Flying at 90 miles per hour A misplaced soul, out of control Guilt and remorse takes its toll Turn in sharp and take a breath Unknowingly moving to your death From the depths, your only power Flying at 90 miles per hour Light your fire and call a friend This isn’t how it’s meant to end A final word, a blinding light A crashing sound to wake the night From the depths, your only power Flying at 90 miles per hour

Up For Hire 04:20
Half-hearted. Controlled paces Expressionless. Cold. Dead faces Heal deep. Worn-out places Fixing. Mental races Ignoring warnings that were said No-hope couples queue up to wed Press invaders in your bed We know what goes on in your head A shallow grave is all but dug Money. An addictive drug Feel its pull. Catch the bug Turn round fast and pull the plug Foolish motives. Call it desire Self-respect burned in the fire Never falter. Never tire Whose voice is that up for hire?
6.
Generation 02:58
Don’t you worry, they say But don’t you get in our way No future. They cried But no-one critical died They heard you call for a review They are sick of the sight of you

Dead streets. Sale sign Valentine, be mine Mobile phone. ‘Dog and bone.’ Stocks and shares. Bank and loan Money. Trees. Aching knees Scratch and sniff. Lovers’ tiff Heartbreak. Toothache Lost stake. We fake Bungee girl. Camera crew Lipstick. Hair: slick Cutting locks. Comic socks Fashion sense. World events CNN. News at Ten Crime wave. Behave Learn to prey. Walk away Replay. Don’t stray

Smokescreen 03:07
Sleepwalking in the middle of a dream Tightrope steps and a silent scream Waking dead, you feel the heat A taste so strong, a taste so sweet Video captures still the heart We’re all still a world apart Fighting for a better day All our dreams just slip away From the depths, a tainted mind Nothing ends up far behind Wisdom hides a secret clue: All you need’s inside of you Sleepwalking in the middle of a dream Tightrope steps and a silent scream Waking dead, you feel the heat A taste so strong, a taste so sweet

Fever 04:11
Lights inside my head Evoke the waking dead And the mystery of the mind, yeah The pain inside won't sleep It begins to creep I know that soon I’ll be struck blind, yeah A choking hold. Begin To tear the second skin All these feelings can’t be mine, yeah For every moment lost I’ll never know the cost I never learned to draw the line, yeah Smother/feed Internal bleed I’m so cold It’s all black inside There’s no place to hide All these feelings can't be mine, yeah

I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, no I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, so Help me to divide the highway Help me to survive this my way I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, no I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, so Help me to divide this my way Help me to survive the highway I need assistance I… I… I… I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, no I don’t know what I’m doing here, no I don’t know what I’m saying, so Help me to divide the highway Help me to survive this my way Help me to divide this my way Help me to survive the highway Help me to divide the highway Help me to survive this my way Help me to divide this my way Help me to survive the highway

No Return 02:32
They said: “Never come round here no more” It was everything you waited for Never dream and make-believe All of it, build to deceive They said: “Never come round here no more”

Inside Of Me 03:51
Turn on your TV screen! Turn on your TV screen! I said: no way, no way, no way! I said: no way, no way, no way! You’ll never get a piece of me! You’ll never get inside of me! Inside of me, inside of me Inside of me, oh no You’ll never get inside of me Never get inside of me Turn on your TV screen! Turn on your TV screen! On your TV, turn on Turn on, turn on your TV screen! Inside of me, inside of me Inside of me, oh no You’ll never get inside of me Never get inside of me

about

Listen To Me is the culmination of a long period of writing and recording that began back in 2005, after my previous album, Release. That album had seen me working fully digitally for the first time, immersing myself in a plethora of real-world sounds. For Listen To Me, I decided to return to an approach that was more overtly electronic, and so many of the tracks here recall my love of electronic music and atmospheric pop.

Two tracks are also rescued from history. Laid To Rest is a track I've played and recorded since the 1990s, and this version finally enables me to leave it be (hence the name), while Up For Hire takes what was once a fairly ambient piece and twists it into an unrelenting broadside about how fame, fortune and the media corrupts, even in subtler ways ("Whose voice is that up for hire?").
