about

“8.5/10 - All killer no filler … Highly charged electronica with incredibly addictive melodies ... One of the year’s most enjoyable albums”
- Louder Than War

"Self-produced, artistically assured and backing up their synth connoisseur claims with some fantastic and engaging sounds."
- Give it Back Magazine

"From an immediate percussive pound, through subtle instrumentation ... it just won’t let go. The truth is, that Radiation wouldn’t have fit in amongst the pop of the 80s, it’s far more intelligent than that."
-hiapop

Track Name: New Town
It's a lot to do
but not much to see
You're walking round and round
The dead centre you found
The concrete ground
Alone in a new town
Alone in a new town

There's nothing to eat
No people to see
No one out on the street
No one under your feet
There is nothing to do
and nowhere to be
You're walking in a new town
You're walking in a new town

Open empty spaces
Fountains splashing everywhere
You're alone in a new town

New town
Alone in a new town

Left one life and ran to another
and you led yourself back to the heart
You didn't mean to get here
You're not sure how you found
yourself in a new town
You're alone in a new town


Buildings tall and empty
Here from long ago
Shiny and new for a past generation
Relics of old
Standing in a new town
Still standing in a new town

New town
New town
New town
Alone in a new town

It's a lot to do
but not much to see
You're walking round and round
The dead centre you found
The concrete ground
Alone in a new town
Alone in a new town

There's nothing to eat
No people to see
No one out on the street
No one under your feet
There is nothing to do
and nowhere to be
You're walking in a new town
You're walking in a new town

Open empty spaces
Fountains splashing everywhere
You're alone in a new town
Track Name: Radiation
Everything we touch
Everything we see
Everything we hear
is degraded

Everything we do
Everything we say
Everything we think
is transmitted

Climb the tower
Find the power
Climb the tower
Find the power
Radiation

Everything we vote
Everything we buy
Everything we eat
makes us smaller

Thinking we’re apart
Thinking we’re afraid
We know who they are
Implore them

Climb the tower
Find the power
Climb the tower
Find the power
Radiation
Climb the tower
Find the power
Radiation

Climb the tower
Find the power
Radiation

Everything we say
is real
Everything we say
is real
Everything we say
is real
Everything we say
is real

Everything we say
Track Name: Grey Room
You freak
You sneak
Invited into the room

It's dull
and grey
I wish it was over soon

The windows
don't look outside
Your eyes glaze over

And you stare right through me
Right through me
Can't you see
what's going on?
I don't know
What you're waiting for

I wish it was over
Over now
I'm looking at the door
Thinking of out side
I ask you a straight question
You give me slippery answers
You're bending and wriggling
but you're totally still

Stare through me
Right through me
Can't you see
what's going on?
I don't know
what you're waiting for

Stare through me
Right through me
Can't you see
what's going on?
I don't know
what you're waiting for

Meanwhile in another dimension
of my own invention
You eat all your words
I give you double detention
and pop your pretention
Your palace in shards

Stand in the room
Sit in the chair
I'm looking at your balding hair

My eyes glaze over
I stare right back at you
Like I'm looking at the door
Thinking of outside

I stare through you
I stare through you
I stare through you
I stare through you
Track Name: The Sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea
It's you or me
It's you or me

So much to be
So much to see
Surrounded by the ruined used-to-bes

When they were walking in sunshine
They couldn't see it's against time

Nobody's sick
Nobody bleeds
You can't be free
You can't be free

Go wander off in the darkness
Go run and hide in your playpen
I know we've got something hidden
We can't keep anything from them

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
It's you or me
It's you or me

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
It's you or me
It's you or me

The knives are out
They're coming out

You can't be free
You can't be free
Open your eyes and arteries
Life's never free down by the sea

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Track Name: I Go Invisible
I go invisible
under your cloak
We rock in time on the Southern line
I go invisible
release the choke-hold
Fast and slow
the monster grows

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed
Stares go through me
I'm never there

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed
Stares go through me
I'm never there

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible

Locked inside
I think you know why
Empty your head
Quit playing dead

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight
(Never there)
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight
(Never there)

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
(Stares go through)

Stares go through
Stares go through
Track Name: Diamond Feelings
Is it real
Can it hear me
Does it feel me
when I'm walking
Can it see

Does it know
what I'm thinking
Can it work out
what I'm dreaming
Does it care

Span the ocean
Dig the gold out of my eyes
Diamond feelings
Diamond feelings
with a bullet-proof design

Span the ocean
Dig the gold out of my eyes
Diamond feelings
Diamond feelings
with a bullet-proof design

In the sky
In the water
In the ground
In the signals, in the airwaves
and in everything you think you found

Give your body
Iron creases
from your mind
Find your demons
Fight your feelings
Taste the thoughts
that you left behind

Span the ocean
Dig the gold out of my eyes
Diamond feelings
Diamond feelings
with a bullet-proof design

Two three four

Is it real
Can it hear me
Does it feel me
when I'm walking
Can it see

Does it know
what I'm thinking
Can it work out
what I'm dreaming
Does it care

Span the ocean
Dig the gold out of my eyes
Diamond feelings
Diamond feelings
with a bullet-proof design
Track Name: Live Rail
One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

I see shivers - linger
Details slip between my fingers
Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable

Empty suit - shuffled paper
Broken nails - metal flavour
I see shivers - shadows linger
Details slip between my fingers

Empty suit - shuffled paper
Broken nails - metal flavour
I see shivers - shadows linger
Details slip between my fingers

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace
One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace
Trace

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks
Track Name: Rewild
The crashing leaves
You feel the breeze
You're running out of this town

Your eyes are far
You won't be long
You left the radio on

You quit the room
You'll get yours soon
The buildings are flashes of grey in the night
Then you see the moon

You're getting out
You cross the field
You leave the glow of the town
You're riding wild ponies

Given permission to pass through
You're witnessing something you once knew
It's a part of you

When will you leave the city far behind?
You're in the dark and you hear
The thunder of the hooves
You hear the thunder of the hooves

And your eyes are searching through the gloom
Somebody's playing tricks on you
You try to leave
You cannot see
You touch the trees - they breathe warm

You try to run but now you're charmed

You cannot win
Or go back home
Now this is where you belong
You said you wanted to get away from it all

You said you wanted to get away from it all

When will you leave the city far behind?
You're in the dark and you hear
The thunder of the hooves
You hear the thunder of the hooves

And your eyes are searching through the gloom
Somebody's playing tricks on you

When will you leave the city far behind?
You're in the dark and you hear
The thunder of the hooves
You hear the thunder of the hooves

And your eyes are searching through the gloom
Somebody's playing tricks on you

Somebody's playing tricks on you
Track Name: Fairy Tale
In the darkest corner
of the outer spiral arm
Lived a race of monkeys
with a thirst for causing harm
Banging the rocks together!
Frightened of the sparks

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Giving birth to combustion
to chase away the dark
Plutonium out of Uranus
Frightened by the sparks

We crack your skull wide open
We're drinking in your thoughts
You crack their skulls wide open
and feed them to the dogs

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Time to end
what we've begun
Time to burn down
what you've become

In your widest deserts
we're clawing up the ground
We found an astrolabe
and a skull that's far too round
Bony fingers pointing
to the stars and far beyond
Why can't you realise that
that's where you came from

Banging the rocks together!
Frightened of the sparks
Banging the rocks together!
Frightened of the sparks

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Time to end
what we've begun
Time to burn down
what you've become

Time to leave
your only sun
Time to end
what we've begun

It's just a fairytale
It's just a fairytale
Track Name: Backburning
From the North
darkness fell
These fires
start themselves

Cracked earth
Crying leaves
Your voice
carried by the breeze

Rough smoke
dusts my eyes
Your hand
guiding mine

Running wild
leave no trace
We go
through the haze

Sweeping forth, we're ablaze
These fires start themselves
Disintegrate the bad old days
These fires start themselves

From the North
darkness fell
These fires
start themselves

Cracked earth
Crying leaves
Your voice
carried by the breeze

Rough smoke
dusts my eyes
Your hand
guiding mine

Running wild
leave no trace
We go
through the haze

Sweeping forth, we're ablaze
These fires start themselves
Disintegrate the bad old days
These fires start themselves

Sweeping forth, we're ablaze
Disintegrate the bad old days
