"Desire" as written by Mark David Hollis and Timothy Alan Friese-Greene....
Desire
Whispered spoken
In time
Rivers oceans

That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
I'm just content to relax
Than drown within myself

Of mind
Sheltered broken
Denied
Gifted stolen

That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
Ain't got a bed of excuse for myself

That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
Ain't got a bed of excuse for myself

That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
That ain't me babe
I'm just content to relax
Than drown within myself

    Song MeaningA kind of counter-ambition song, where the writer is simply content with what they have in life and sees no need to be burdened by the weight of additional responsibilities or tasks in their life and not have to make excuses for doing so, summed up by "I'm just content to relax, than drown within myself" line. The song really plays off the parts of the lyrics that sound like they could come from a motivational poster in a gym backed by a quite guitar, organ and rumbling kettle drum, into the "relax" lyrics that unleashes a mass of noise.
