"Original Man" as written by and Steve Halliwell Dave Allen....
Here I stand the Original Man,
Born in silence, raised in sin,
As they moved on the face of the of the water
Out came the breath and I stepped in.

Now I'm anxious, I'm restless,
There's a storm boiling up inside,
These feelings, so demanding,
Will not be refused, cannot be denied.

Can't you feel it burning underneath your skin?
You can't shut me out, you've got to let me in.

AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE TWILIGHT DAYS,
AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE SWEET DECAY

From Genesis to Revelation
The story now unfolds,
Six Six Six and the Beast is rising,
Love was the Law but love grows cold.

Can't you feel it burning underneath your skin?
You can't shut me out, you've got to let me in.

AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE TWILIGHT DAYS,
AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE SWEET DECAY

At the Ceremony of Innocence
There stand the hollow men,
Their eyes are blank and pitiless
As it moves towards Bethlehem.

AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE TWILIGHT DAYS,
AND THE KINGDOM COME
IN THE SWEET DECAY
