KILLER (DIGITAL RMX)

KILLER (DIGITAL RMX)
Learning is a clock with only one hand
Dreaming is a beach with speaking sands
Knowledge is a vice that grips a man
And Cain was a killer that didn’t understand

Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string
Time is a bird that cannot sing
And you can’t stop the rain with anything
Except love

Wanting is a boat that doesn’t know the sea
Needing is a pain that hurts to be free
Waiting is a lock that doesn’t have no key
And Cain was a killer that could have been me

Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string
Time is a bird that cannot sing
And you can’t stop the rain with anything
Except love

War is a sore that won’t go away
Night is a bruise on the skin of day
Children are the reason that you say you’ll stay
And Cain was a killer who got clean away

Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string
Time is a bird that cannot sing
And you can’t stop the rain with anything
Except love

Teachers are people who shoot at sparks
Lessons are knives that shine in the dark
Sins are boats on the lake in the park
And Cain was a killer right there at the start

Wisdom is a yo-yo with a broken string
Time is a bird that cannot sing
And you can’t stop the rain with anything
Except love

Facts:

  • When Dark Company went digital in 1992, George and Jeff spent a long time making Cubase play all of their songs and many new songs were written at this time also.
  • This is a fairly embryonic version of Killer that was transferred to the Atari.  Some of the main musical themes of the original are evident. It doesn’t have a proper ending as such.
  • Nothing further was done with this but we felt it had a quaint charm all of its own and we felt 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 more of an & co piece as Pete is not featured in this version.
