"Watching The Girl" as written by Paul Jago and Jud Ruhl....
Watching the girl straddle the world
Just like the snake that swallows it's tail
You know that I been where I wasn't seen
Kissing temptation under the veil

I was alone, walking back home
When she reached out and took hold of me
Shook my sense out, said not to doubt
That we were naked, you can never go home

Still the sirens sing a whale song
Covered up by machinery hum
While we're kept here, separated
And banging on our windows

Said we were pent up in an accident
Verging on nowhere, oh, we gonna spread
Spreading it wide, breaking inside
With no past to cling to, to turn back the tide

The the screen fall, 'til the heart stalls
Let your chain out, keep your control
While we're kept here, insatiated
By the needs we've fabricated

Still the sirens sing a whale song
Covered up by machinery hum
While we're kept here, domesticated
And banging on our windows

    General Commentthe Gandharvas are great. They should have been more popular than they were. This song is one of their best......before First Day of Spring, of course.
