I just wish my life could be as strange as a conspiracy
I hold out home but there's no way of being what I want to be
The dragons blow fire angels fly spirits wither in the air
I'm just me I can't deny I'm neither here, there nor anywhere
Oh you should see my trail of disgrace
(Oh oh you should see my trail of disgrace)
It's enough to scare the whole human race
I said, oh you should see my trail of disgrace
(Oh oh you should see my trail of disgrace)
It's enough to scare the whole human race, yeah, eminence

I don't care about this life, they say there'll be another one
Defeatist attitude I know will you be sorry when I've gone
Primitive painters are ships floating on an empty sea
Gathering in galleries were stallions of imagery
Oh you should see my trail of disgrace,
(Oh oh you should see my trail of disgrace)
It's enough to hold the whole human race
I said oh you should see my trail of disgrace
(Oh oh you should see my trail of disgrace)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(You should see my trail of disgrace)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(You should see my trail of disgrace)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear I said it thinner

This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(I just swear, light on me)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
(Your bitter trance)
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(Yeah yeah)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
(Hold on)
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(Hold on love, on and on)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(The way I see it, yeah yeah)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(In your father's life)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(Painters of my life)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(Swear I'm your life)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(Do you feel it?)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
(I'm good)
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
(Yeah, we?re jamming on)
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
(I can feel through your head)
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
This is a new trance, yeah, an entrance too
(All through your life)
And there's a look on your face, it's a human race
And if you just can't stand it, ah, I swear
This is a new trance

    General CommentLooooooooove this song so much. The contrast between their two voices is amazing, and I love how it starts out all shoe-gazey then morphs into this rich, beautiful sound.

    General CommentI can only imagine how magical this must have been for those hearing it for the first time back in 1985. Must have been like all the doors opening.
