QuotesEdit

Andy (on the demo): “Barry out, Dave in, that's got Go 2 out of our system, now we can relax a little. . . Not! Virgin want to hear demos of our newest material, better buy a pen and get scribbling. A makeshift studio in the basement of Swindon Town Hall, Red Brick, rings to the rafters, (heating ducts really) with some spanking tunes. Here's one now, recorded March '79, you can almost feel the eggboxes.”

LyricsEdit

How bright are the fires of thought

In a chain of command

How bright is the medical torch

When it's put in our hand


My microbes and I

Can't wait to lay down and die

We realise that we must be spent

Like the cells that dissolve when a brainwave is sent

How bright are the fires of thought

In a chain of command


My bloodgroup and me

A body of soldiers are we

To the wound we quickly flowed

And we fought with the weapons in our

Chemical code

How bright are the fires of thought

In a chain of command
