Armed & Dangerous (Digital RMX) by & co.
Album: Signmaker

Bonus track!

In the circus there’s a uniform for Fun
The love they got is fired from clownish guns
But it’s so dangerous
Armed laughter changing us
Warmed up with a yellow paper sun

Each act in line comes right in on cue
Bringing our emotions into view
And it’s so dangerous
Armed laughter changing us
Next time bring your mind along with you

There’s a pistol in my smile
It shoots grins for miles and miles
But look into my eyes
The reflection’s saying goodbye

Outside the ring we sit and blankly stare
Nobody but our own selves in the chair
But it’s so dangerous
Armed laughter changing us
Close your eyes and no-one knows you’re there

With animals such tricks are neatly made
They nod and wink in terminal parade
It’s oh so dangerous
Armed laughter changing us
Into their souls we think we can invade

There’s a pistol in my smile
It shoots grins for miles and miles
But look into my eyes
The reflection’s saying goodbye

Fun Facts:
* When Dark Company went digital in 1992, George and Jeff spent a long time making Cubase play all of their songs.
* Many new songs were written at this time also.
* This is an extremely embryonic version of Armed & Dangerous that was transferred to the Atari.
* Some of the main musical themes of the original are evident.
* This arrangement is different from the original and the track is much shorter.
* It doesn’t have a proper ending as such.
* Nothing further was done with this version.
* We felt it had a curious quaint charm all of its own and that Dark Company fans would be interested to hear some of this rare material.
* This track first appeared as a bonus track on the reissue of Signmaker in 2000.
* This is considered an & co track because there are no vocals and no analogue musical instruments, such as guitar or bass.
* Jeff deserves credit for finding the splendid drum sample, the source of which remains unknown.
