"25 O'clock" as written by and Andy Partridge....
The urge to take you grows more strong
For time had made me wait too long
Each watch I smash apart
Just adding to my power
Each watch I smash apart
Just bringing near the hour
Of twenty-five o'clock - that's when you're going to be mine
Twenty-five o'clock, we'll be together till the end of time
At twenty-five o'clock

The ticking seconds - hear them call
My spell of hours will make you fall
Each timer that I break
Will halt the flowing sands
Each timer that I break
Will put you in my hands
At twenty-five o'clock - that's when you're going to be mine
Twenty-five o'clock, we'll be together till the end of time
At twenty-five o'clock

Each watch I smash apart
Just adding to my power
Each watch I smash apart
Just bringing near the hour
Of twenty-five o'clock

    General CommentDripping acid-drenched psychedelia, constantly reaching for the unattainable 25th hour when he will finally make her his own for eternity. Brilliant send off to the 1960s and "nuggets" era. One of the best records that never came out of the 60s.
