"Nerves" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
Nerve ends tick in flicker book animation
One eye's closed in fear, anticipation
Will it stay shut? Will it ever open?
What if?
What if?
Nerves

Tell tale tongues lick at seven senses
Brittle spittle sparks you are defenseless
The fabric of dreams is ripped apart
As you feel the twist of the shadowed dagger
In your pumping heart
Nerves

Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel
Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel
Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel

A trail of random cutlery cuts a dash in the concrete underpass
Sense of serenity is shattered in the glint of splintered glass

Nerves

Nerves
Nerves

Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel
Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel
Nerves liky nylon, Nerves like steel

    General CommentThis song embodies anxiety in every way, lyrically and musically. I think it's a fine example of making the two compliment each other perfectly to convey a mood. It's one of my favorites, a work of art.

    General CommentThe "nylon/steel" part makes me think of "guitar/bass".
