Recorded live at the Lime Street Bop, St George’s Hall, Liverpool. 28.7.1984

Got no morals. Out of my head. No tomorrows, better off dead than alive it’s said.
I will run for cover, go for gold. I ran to mother or so I’m told.
It’s all lies, blind lies, white lies, a pack of lies.

Weeping Jesus, help us through. You will appease us.
Is that true? Is it true? It’s a lie.
One million reasons to stay in bed. No earthly reason or so it’s said.
It’s all lies, blind lies, white lies, a pack of lies

And I wait, I wait for morning light to disappear.
And I hate to criticise the things you hold so dear.
You’re all, you’re all I rate. The reason for no reason seems so clear.
And you’re so called and I’m called nothing but a liar.
