"Midnight In A Perfect World" as written by Pekka Jussi Pohjola and Josh Paul Davis....
Insight, foresight, more sight
The clock on the wall is a quarter past midnight

I don't love you
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love, of love

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

Now, now, now, now, now, now
Ah ooh
12 o'clock
Ah ooh
Rock rock rock rock the midnight rush
Ah ooh
Ah ooh

Now, now, now, now, now, now

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

I don't love you
The midnight rush
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love , of love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Now now now now now approach now approaching now approach now approaching
Now now now now now now now now approaching midni-
Now now now now now now approaching mid
Now now now now approaching midni-
Now now approaching now now now now approaching midnight

    General Commentthis song is about doomsday, ofcourse. midnight being 12 o clock on the "doomsday clock", aka the end of the world.

    Lyric CorrectionWhat the heck's up with these lyrics, that's not right at all. o_O

    The main singer is

    "I don't believe
    you came into the garden of my heart
    planted seeds of love..."

    It's a lot clearer if you check out the original sample.

    General CommentAbout overcoming the doomsday clock/about the doomsday that will come but for now its seems we are over the cold war and are at 12.15 am so are quite a bit away from self destruction. Towards the end its back to the sample with ticking and "now approaching midnight" so maybe a hint we are looping back again as always. It came out in 96 and shadow had to have been influenced by the cold war and its ending/smoothing.

    Either way its amazing how with so little voice samples he says so much - expresses so much.
