"Prisoner" as written by and John/lawrence Desaultes....
Bursts the ceiling, peeling clouds and fleeing for the sun where maybe there's just a little peace.
Oh please God...
Just a little peace.
A small release.
Its headache's driving me insane.

DRIVING ME INSANE !

    General CommentCompanion to "Demonism", both, I think, from the point of view of a confined maniac, not unlike "I Am the Way, the Truth, the Light" from the same album.

    General CommentThe tracks “Demonism” and “Prisoner” are incorrectly separated on the PIAS version of Asylum (or maybe all versions, I have the PIAS). Various PIAS editions of 1980’s LPD albums have tracking problems. These are in fact two independent songs, but since they are mixed that way, they can be considered related. “Demonism” is the brilliant instrumental violin thing lasting about a minute, and “Prisoner” is the dark electro-pop song that follows. And the lyrics end like this: “A small release. An anaesthetic. This headache's driving me insane.” Edward must have had a terrible headache when he wrote this :-)

    General CommentFucking stupid, what was submitted. Here are the lyrics:

    Roaming spores and running sores and scorching fever. Score a pill to maybe ease the pain. But there's more to come. The thunder's in your brain, the lightning dances. Stars explode and spit. A foaming fit suck in a litt. Press << ground floor >> but IT RISES! Bursts the ceiling, peeling clouds and fleeing for the sun where maybe there's just a little peace. Oh please God... Just a little peace. A small release.
