Wasteland
The Mission Lyrics


There's a crystal view from my window
And I can see years to come
I live for the burn and the sting of pleasure
I live for the sword, the steel, and the gun
I can tear down the walls, storm them barricades
Run to the place where the frightened crawl
Desire lurks beyond good and evil
So dance on the graves where the hammer falls

[Chorus:]
Over this land
All over this wasteland
Over this land
All over this wasteland

You can touch, but please keep your distance
You're innocent and pure and with no shame
The spirit is willing, and the flesh is great
Your teasing your torment with the pleasure of pain

[(Chorus:]
Heaven and Hell, I know them well
But I haven't yet made my choice
I'm feeling dead 'cause I'm shouting loud
And NO ONE can hear my voice
Walking the tightwire, can't look down
Strung out high, above you all
Faithful wind blows through this land
Howls my name, Hell is my fall.

(chorus)
(spooky music)

Strung out high, above you all

I live for the burn and the sting of pleasure
I live for the sword, the steel, and the gun
I can tear down the walls, storm them barricades
Run to the place where the frightened crawl

So dance on the graves where the hammer falls

Over this land
All over this wasteland
Over this land
All over this wasteland

You can touch, but please keep your distance
You're innocent and pure and with no shame
The spirit is willing, and the flesh is great
Your teasing your torment with the pleasure of pain

Heaven and Hell, I know them well…

Wayne Hussey used to live a few miles away from me and drank in a few of the local pubs. 12 Dec 86 I got married and was staying at the Saunton Sands Hotel in Devon England. A helicopter came in and we were chating to the pilot and cameraman who told us they were doing a pop video in the sand dunes on the beach the next day. After a while the producer comes into the bar with all the banners and starts asking us what we though about the ideas for the video. Next Wayne and the band arrive and start having a drink. Someone must have told him we'd just got married and as we were sat with them in the bar Wayne went out and came back in with a large bottle of champagne and congratulated us and presented the champagne to us on behalf of The Mission. They shot the video beach segments the next day and left but the weather closed in and the chopper guys couldn't get away. They'd done a several 007 films and stunt flying and were really nice guys.
