"Capricorn" as written by Michael Brian Holmes, Paul Nigel Cook, John William Jowitt, Geoffey Orford Martin and Peter Jonathan Nicholls....
The shadows fill the corners across the square
They come a-crawling to offer shelter, to haull me in
Without a needlepoint in the light
And the steel to still your tongue
The night hides a multitude of uncovered sins.

The heart beating in Capricorn, I take on a guise
They won't define me anytime in the English rain
Will I feel an automatic release from all this pain ?
With no movement, undiscovered, I lie in wait.

So what if you're sentimental
And I'm out of tears, out of sympathy ?
I'll make it look accidental
And I'll leave no sign to say your life was mine
No-one I think fell out of my tree
No-one I carried just the same
Thinner than most sinners and saints alive
Dare you speak my name ?
So what if you're temperamental
And I'm out of tears, out of sympathy
So what if I'm elemental ?
