"For The Love Of Big Brother" as written by Annie Lennox and David Allan Stewart....
Like a train passing in the distance
Black bird in flight, I hear you call
And even though there's no one
Dark shadows move across the wall

I still hear the echo
Of your footsteps on the stairs
Still recall the images that
Seem to live out there

First you see my fingerprints
Like skeletons of leaves on the wall
People changing places
I stand for a moment and it's gone

I still hear the echo
Of your footsteps on the stairs
Still recall the images that
Seem to live out there

Like a train passing in the distance
Black bird in flight I hear you call
And even though there's no one
Dark shadows move across the wall

I still hear the sound of
Conversations from the hall
Look to see who's coming
But it's nothing and there's no one there at all
No one there at all, no one there at all
No one there at all, no one there at all

    General CommentThese lyrics are slightly off.I'll post the correct ones.

    Like a train passing in the distance
    Like a bird in flight, I hear you call
    And even though there's no-one
    Dark shadows move across the wall

    I still the echoes of your footsteps on the stairs
    Still recall the images that seem to linger there

    Faces seem like fingerprints
    Like skeletons of leaves upon the lawn
    People changing places
    Lasting for a moment, then it's gone

    I still hear the echoes of your footsteps on the stairs
    Still recall the images that seem to linger there

    Like a train passing in the distance
    Like a bird in flight, I hear you call
    And even though there's no-one
    Dark shadows move across the wall

    I still hear the sound of conversation from the hall
    Look to see who's coming
    But it's nothing and there's no-one there at all
    No-one there at all
    No-one there at all
    No-one there at all

    This is probably my favourite song on the album, along with Doubleplusgood. It's so beautiful and eerie.
