"Pleasure and Pain" as written by and David/smithies Fielding....
White as a cotton clown
Silence sea and sky
Innocent as the child
Always asking why
I can take you there
I can show you
I can take you there
I'll be there
Gently catching you as you fall
Hearing you when you call
Smiling as we climb
Smiling crocodiling
Certainly as the sun
Bakes a Sahara day
Ancient as the hills
Crumbling into clay.
I can take you there
(Rest of chorus)
It's pleasure and pain
No loss no gain
Pleasure and pain
Again and again
Pleasure and pain.
I can take you there
(Rest of chorus)
This madness, this laughter
Outward feelings I can't control
Those coloured lights are leading me
Is it you?
Is it me?

    General CommentThis is what Mark Burgess says about "pleasure and Pain":

    "I still have no idea where this came from. All I remember is that we jammed it out with Martin Jackson after John had left temporarily to get his head together. The idea began with the intro, written by Dave on the piano."

    I love this song. All of Script of the Bridge is great.
