"Laura" as written by Woodrow Wright and Michael Sykes....
Tempted white eyes
Blinded by the night
Hollow like the towers
On the inside
Laura's a machine
She's burning insane
Laura's a machine

For a menace in disguise
Behold this night
The four walls are furnished
Now she's alive
No one ever helped poor Laura
No one ever helped poor Laura
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy

She's on the line to cut it all
She's on the line to drop and fall
She's on the line
Line to fall

People laughing an awful sight
People leave Laura 'tis her night
Laura have you seen it, Laura can you say
Laura can you see
From the light of the Catherine wheel
She spins from above
Haunted by these times
My European love

No one ever helped poor Laura
No one ever helped poor Laura
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy
She's rabid in ecstasy

She's on the line to cut it all
She's on the line to drop and fall
She's on the line
Line to fall

Laura
Laura

    General CommentI think Fields of the Nephilim plagiarizes the Sisters of Mercy songs "Alice" and "Anaconda" in this song. it's about a girl in the grip of ecstasy.

    General CommentTaking these lines:

    She's rabid in ecstacy
    She's on the line to cut it all
    She's on the line to drop and fall

    Sounds like a drugs reference to me.
    "Rabid in ecstacy" - sounds like a burning addiction to the feeling.
    "She's on the line" - sounds like she's snorting something.
    "to drop and fall" - sounds like it was an overdose.
    Of course, I could be totally wrong!
