Morning always seems too stale to justify
Lament blossoms, hours, minutes of our minds
Broken thoughts run through your empty mind
At least a beaten dog knows how to lie

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a, a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

Endless hours in bed, no peace, in this mind
No one knows the hell where innocence dies
Fragments crawling like cobwebs on stone
Blows away the safety only a sleeping pill knows

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a, a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a, a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

Inhale some ether, I've cranked the volume.

Love songs that the rhythm guitar chords get my fingers making poses of the finger positions...

In the summer of 1987 no teenager could go anywhere without hearing "Appetite for Destruction." Thick in the middle of the exclusionary age of jocks, nerds, punks, motorheads, etc.,  "Appetite" was the one thing that all teenagers seemed to agree on. Good times for all, and what a summer it was.

liked Meine's vocals and Schenker's guitar better

Decent album by MSP, to be fair - obviously not a patch on the follow up The Holy Bible, but songs like La Tristesse Durera and Roses in the Hospital - and not on the album but released just before it, Suicide is Painless - are great, to me 👍 Just my two cents, as they say.

Good tune, but not great. I never heard of them before. Thankx RP! I will listen again, maybe it will grow on me.

Unfortunately it’s not to be…. Back again and now in regular rotation it seems…. Was hoping for a longer respite

Ancient Latins would say "si parva licet componere magnis".
I turned this on as I was washing dishes and couldn't hear it well - thought it was 'To Cry You Song' by Tull.
Coming from 1993, it's not as grundgy as I would like it, but my head is still banging.  Solid 7.
What's worse than George Orwell's dystopia "1984"? Having survived 1984 and all its shit music, only to see it come back into vogue... Maybe some Kings of Leon next for my 38 Special fix??
Not one of the tracks I know of these guys, quite different actually, it rocks pretty hard. I give it props just for that.

Fortunately, the rest doesn't.
One of the most underrated post punk/new wave rock acts in the World. Brilliant live too
Vocals remind me of Klaus Meine of Scorpions, no?
Punchy,gritty and full on✌️
Cool song! Rock and roll!

The RP rating says it all.

I think they are on tour with Whitesnake and Dokken this summer. After this song, I may have to go raise my Luther Wright ratings.

This is the sort of music that has kept the Preachers at their level of success. A degree of a "tin ear" involved if they can't hear how this sounds like a '90's version Spinal Tap doing 80's music. FWIW, I really LOVE, "If You Tolerate This, Your Children Will Be Next".
