about

Michael: "A bit of found-sound on this, clearly. Also, this is the disc break - the album was conceived as a double-record, so this is the end of Disc One. So, maybe, pause. Grab a beverage of your choice. Then resume. With "Never" - opener of Disc Two...

lyrics

Keep pushin' what ya know's untrue
Pushin' me away from you
And right up to the line
Of what's yours and what's mine
Wield your silence to keep me down
So fuckin' sure I'll just hang around
Wait forever for you
Like you're the best I can do
But this time it's not like before
I'll follow the moulding around your door
And outside to a world away
Where there's nothing more left to say
Still up to your same old tricks
Nothing one of your lies can't fix
And every one of your friends
Left all at loose ends
You'll drag 'em all into this
With your lingering bitterness
If you can't get your way,
You'll make everyone pay
But this time it's not like before
I'll follow the moulding around your door
And outside to a world away
Where there's nothing more left to say...
