"Get Your Dead Hand Off My Shoulder" as written by Andrew James Cairns, Neil Cooper and Michael Robert Mckeegan....
The toxic glow of this botched city
Hums in time with my nightmares
Murmuring sinister resonance
The shocking and the shaping of air
Trapped in a shivering carcass
Part of a throbbing crowd
Every space is constantly trembling
Stay awake, lights go out

Time speeds up, I get older
Get your dead hand of my shoulder

You are a present absence
Spectral traces everywhere
You set the darkness echoing
Chair creaks, you're not there
Vibration through my body
It hits my chest and throat
At the point of suffocation I let go

Time speeds up, I get older
Get your dead hand of my shoulder

Deafening whispered threats
Like an unknowable breath
Rising in a hollow swell
Shrill bloody red
All streets are screaming empty
Frequencies sing your ghost
We've had our time together
Now I've got to let you go

Time speeds up, I get older
Get your dead hand of my shoulder
Get your dead hand of my shoulder
