Barefaced time don’t listen
Clock struck hours go missing
Sand runs through the narrow necks of glass
We stand inside the night
In darkness out of sight
Waiting for tomorrow’s lite to pass

God-taught words don’t weaken
Unless they’re out of season
And dreams light up the inside of your head
We run into the sun
Its brightness like a gun
Shooting at the quick and at the dead

We see you peering in
Jealous of our sin
Your idle eyes just sticky stars of fire

Braveheart boys go marching
To any war that’s starting
With foolish flames burning in their minds
We turn outside the door
Don’t like what we just saw
The hand of man just wants to turn us blind

We see you peering in
Jealous of our sin
Your idle eyes just sticky stars of fire

You, who speak the loudest against it all
Specialised blind eyes, your ‘justice’ just ignores
We, who are the pattern’s ragged edge
We, who are the voice inside your head
You cannot erase us
You cannot evade us
Our Spirit is from Truth superbly fed

Priest prayers made for mouthing
Are what the crowd are shouting
Churches are the free gift of our time
We hide behind the sky
In whispers asking Why
Can’t anybody read the warning signs

We see you peering in
Jealous of our sin
Your idle eyes just sticky stars of fire

Fun Facts:

  • The music for Alpha Omega was originally written by Marc in his tiny cluttered Countess Wear bedroom.
  • Marc had borrowed George’s DR55A drum machine and Tascam 244 4-track and laid down several grooves, one of which became Alpha Omega.
  • The basic drum pattern used was the drum machine’s on-board Bossa Nova.
  • The precise arrangement remained something of a conundrum for a long time.
  • Pete wrote the talkover part sometime after the rest of the lyrics, upon request to add something into the mix that was a little different to go over the strange instrumental section.
  • If you wish to keep time to the instrumental section with the swirly guitar, the time signature of each bar changes.
  • The first bar is 13 beats, then 10, then 7, then 4, then back to 13 again.
  • If you count this as four 3s plus an extra one at the end, then three 3s plus an extra one at the end, then two 3s plus one and one 3 plus one, it may be easier!
  • When George lived in Plymouth this is another tune he would play in the tunnels and subways to earn a few pennies to buy food.
  • The key is Cm.
  • Back in the summer of 1992, Big Bad Al wrote a lovely solo violin part on the sequencer in the instrumental section after the first chorus.
  • Unfortunately we no longer have the violin disk for the S900 and somehow Al’s part was lost during 15 years of disk degradation, so we have tried to approximate it using a cello sample instead.
  • With all its tempo and time signature changes, the recording of this song on the sequencers was perhaps the most technically challenging of all Dark Company’s songs and was one of the first to be tackled for that very reason.
  • The arrangement was too complex for Alien Heat to ever make anything out of it and it remained trapped in Marc’s bedroom until Dark Company took on its challenge.
