"All Due Restraint" as written by and William Roy Francis....
Lost a pound of flesh in suicidal dreams Drugged up on a London city street I awoke without a name in Hell Found Scylla and Charybdis
An empty train awaits Now I’m headed northwest To the beautiful Manchester Sunset And now I’m going home But where is home?
Synthesized again Yeah I’m flying high Ropes are bound and my chest is tied In the underground world of Chelsea This is where we feel love, find life, kill time This is where our pessimism comes to die Here you can trade your flesh for currency
All due restraint take a picture With all my restraint It’s my picture
Come with me to the other side Come dance with me in the dead of night You say you want to live in the darkness? I’ll set you free It’s a long road to hell and back

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song. Definitely one of the best off Noir...and maybe even one of the best of Williams Control's short (so far) career... A beautiful, dark, "noir" yarn spun in song. What's not to love?

    Lost a pound of flesh in suicidal dreams
    Drugged up on a London city street
    I awoke without a name in Hell
    Found Scylla and Charybdis

    An empty train awaits
    Now I'm headed northwest
    To the beautiful Manchester Sunset
    And now I'm going home
    But where is home?

    Synthesized again
    Yeah, I'm flying high
    Ropes are bound and my chest is tied
    In the underground world of Chelsea

    This is where we feel love, find life, kill time
    This is where our pessimism comes to die
    Here you can trade your flesh for currency

    All due restraint
    Take a picture
    With all my restraint
    It's my picture

    Come with me to the other side
    Come dance with me in the dead of night
    (You say you want to live in the darkness?)
    (I'll set you free)
    It's a long road to hell and back

    Come with me to the other side
    Come dance with me in the dead of night
    (You say you want to live in the darkness?)
    (I'll set you free)
    It's a long road to hell and back

    Come with me to the other side
    Come dance with me in the dead of night
    (You say you want to live in the darkness?)
    (I'll set you free)
    It's a long road to hell and back

    Come with me to the other side
    Come dance with me tonight
    You say you want to live in the darkness?
    (I'll set you free)
    It's a long road to hell
