    Even on the darkest day. Even on the longest night. Even when there seems to be no hope left.
    Even when you surf the channels and see only monsters.
    Even little you, little me, pacing our way through a forest of dark menacing shadows wondering if the great creator had simply sneezed upon the candle we need to guide us through to kinder pastures.
    Even now my friends, there is an Angel In The Detail.

    An album two years in the making. There were a few diversions, a few questions never answered, and a cloud full of value moments. The latter have been preserved for you here and many will be related live in the forthcoming Legendary Pink Dots’ 40th Anniversary Tour. In fact we turn 40 in August 2020 , but I guess there is no harm in starting things early.

lyrics

MY LAND
I got a five star turbo drive.
I got a stick that comes alive.
And I'll count slowly up to five
Before I claim you…..
I got a twin beam snakeskin belt,
Dead lover's blood drips from this pelt.
You know the best I ever felt
Was when I claimed him...
And in the centre of the Earth
There is a trunk that's fit to burst
I claimed that much , it's giving birth.....
So see this line across the sand
Which I have drawn with my own hand
Shall be the border of my land
I put my claim in….

PARALLELS

BEEN SPYING ON THE NEIGHBOURS
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
I’M STUDYING A MONSTER THATS CONSUMING ALL THE LIGHT
I KNOW I’M BEING PARANOID
COS ITS VERY FAR AWAY
BUT WHEN I SWING MY TELESCOPE I COUNT ANOTHER 8
AND YOU TELL ME NOT TO WORRY
IT’S A MULTI MILLION YEARS
BUT WHAT IF WE KEEP COMING BACK TIL THAT THING’S NEARLY HERE?

NOW IM WATCHING THE TV AND THAT POOR NEWSGUY’S IN A MESS.
IT SEEMS OUR SUN EXPLODED - WE HAVE JUST EIGHT MINUTES LEFT
BUT MAYBE WE WILL HIT A WALL, REVERSE OUR WAY THROUGH TIME
AND EVERYTHING GETS BETTER
AND WE ALL GET OUT ALIVE

I CAN TELL YOU NOT TO WORRY
THINGS AREN’T AS THEY APPEAR
SURROUNDED BY OUR OTHER SELVES
WE’LL CONQUER ALL OUR FEARS

WHAT TRAPPED ME ON THIS TIMELINE
WHILE ANOTHER ME’S OK
SIPPING COKE AND HUMMING FREEBIRD IN SUNNY ST.TROPEZ
IF I CLOSE MY EYES AND MAKE A WELL CONSIDERED MOVE
WILL MY ANGEL MAKE AN OFFER I CANNOT REFUSE…
OR WHISPER "DONT YOU WORRY
COS ITS UNDER  CONTROL
DON’T FRET ABOUT THE END WHEN WE CAN S;IP THROUGH THIS BLACK HOLE…."

THATS ME WAVING FROM THE PLANE
ME. STANDING ON MY HEAD
ME AGAIN, ON KNEES AGAIN
BELIEVED THE WORDS YOU SAID
COULD WE ALL FEEL GOOD AGAIN 
IF WE JUST LIGHTENED UP
AND JUST ACCEPT ETERNITY 
IS REALLY QUITE ENOUGH….

NO WORRIES.NO FEAR
