"Vertigo (Do the Demolition)" as written by and Simon/rhodes Lebon....
Hey guys, turn it up to get sleazy, twist it in a vise.
Nobody said it was easy, just use your naked eyes. (oh)
How to see and how to hide it,
How to save it well...
Maybe, maybe, maybe
You could take it and eat it
Chew your life supply (oh)
Where's the real life, in your illusion
On the dark side - your powers and confusion
Do the dance,
Do the demolition
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen

Don't you feel edgy?
Bite your lips and bleed.
Conversation is empty,
Abandoned in the freeze.
Freedom is the only condemnation
Free to say well..
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe -
You can take it or leave it,
Just need a little hit tonight.
Where's the real life, in your illusion
On the dark side - of power and confusion
Do the dance,
Do (do) the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear 'cos you don't listen
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
You could try to believe it,
Just need a little help tonight.
Where's the real life, in your illusion
On the dark side - of power and confusion
Do the dance,
Do the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen
Where's the real life, in your illusion
On the dark side - of power and confusion
Do the dance,
Do the demolition.
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen
Hear it when you listen..
You can't hear when you don't listen..
Hear it when you listen..
You can't hear if you don't listen..

    General CommentThis was from their Hitchcockian album. It's about drugs.

    General CommentThis has to be written for John. John's addiction was getting worse by the point I believe. I'm glad he has abandoned the drugs. Let's hope so anyway.

    General CommentI wonder why John got addicted and Simon didn't. I know they both did it, but John was almost consumed.
