HYBRID

Hybrid Year 2003 .

The Numan remix album by Sulpher, Curve, Andy Gray, Alan Moulder, Rico and New Disease, the new tracks cover similar ground to “Pure”. CRAZIER (produced by Rico and Andy Gray again) is another slab of molten industrial rock, while ANCIENTS is a string-drenched ballad of astounding beauty. Numan has also brought M.E. bang up to date with a 21st century makeover of distorted guitars and pounding bass.

Dark

Original version on Exile

I've been waiting here
Waiting for faith
And the word to fall
Now the darkness comes
And I'll pray for
The end of it all

Don't let the dark into me
We killed the angels that warned us of you
Don't let the dark into me
We raised the tower of Babel for you
Don't let the dark into me
We let the children build temples for you
Don't let the dark into me
Don't let the vengence of heaven be you

So pray to me, I'm the Lord's new disease
Look down into the face of God
Bow down and cry, I'm the Black Messiah
The one true divinity
Kneel before my altar and drink the wine of slaughter
Who said I'd save anyone?
So bleed for me, I need hostility
To lead the faithful and the blind

Don't let the light shine on me
I am the poison that feeds life to you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the demon that waits inside you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the ghost that reminds death of you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the darkness that crawls into you


Crazier

The more I take a look inside, the more I'm fried
The more I understand the ride, the more I slide 
The more you put me back in line, the more I tried
The more you looked into my eyes, the more you lied

I come back crazier, but feel much better
You come back crazier, you'll feel better

The more I disregard the signs, the more I fly
The more I walk across the lines, the more I glide

You come back crazier, but feel much better
You come back crazier, you'll feel better

You come back crazier, but feel much better
You come back crazier, you'll feel better


Bleed

Original version on Sacrifice

Someone is talking
But it's not conversation
Sounds more like a voice in my head
It says,
'I live in Nightmares,
I'm the new God of panic
And I'm waiting for you to come home to me'

'So boy, welcome to sleep,
I'm gonna make you, make you, make you bleed'

I could be dreaming
But then maybe that's fatal
There's nowhere to hide in your dreams
I'm so uneasy
I'm shaking and nervous
I'm alone in my room and I'm scared of it

So don't let me sleep
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed

My mother told me
'Don't believe in ghost stories
There's nothing to hurt you in here'
But she was wrong
And now it's come back to haunt me
It says it won't leave me alive for long

I don't want to sleep
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed


Torn

Original version on Pure

Silently I wait alone for you
I've got to put my fear back in its' box
Silently I hear you breathe on me
And I hear mercy sigh and leave the room

You could hurt me
Take my breath away
Would you like that?
You could rip me
Leave me torn and cold
Would you like that?

One more sin. Make me unforgiven

Silently I turn and play begins
I watch you smile
Just like a dead thing smiles
Silently I lose and darkness comes
I hear you laugh as God abandons me

You could cut me
Let me die for you
Would you like that?

All I feel. Makes me unforgiven


Down in the park

Original version on Replicas

Down in the park
Where the machmen
Meet the machines
And play 'Kill by numbers'
Down in the park
Wit a friend called 'Five'

I was in a car crash
Or was it the war
But I've never been
Quite the same
Little white lies
Like 'I was there'

Come to 'Zom Zoms'
A place to eat
Like it was built
In one day
You can watch the humans
Trying to run

Oh look
There's a rape machine
I'd go outside
If he'd look the other way
You wouldn't believe
The things they do

Down in the park
Where the chant is
'Death, death, death'
Until the sun cries morning
Down in the park
With friends of mine

We are not lovers
We are not romantics
'We are here to serve you'
A different face
But the words never change


Everyday I die

Original version on Tubeway Army

The problems of need
I need you
Obscene dreams in
Rusty beds
No-one came here
Tonight
I pulled on me
I need to

I unstick pages and read
I look at pictures of you
I smell the lust in my hand
Everyday I die

Her favourite trick was to Suck me inside
Oh so very art nouveau
Completely false feelings of love. I don't
No-one knows but that died years ago


Absolution

Original version on Exile

I would swim across oceans
Just to talk with you
I would climb a tall mountain
Just to look at you
I'd give my soul to the devil
If you asked me to
I would walk out of heaven
Just to be with you

This is absolute
This is absolution

I would be your disciple
And I'd worship you
Burn the prophets of reason
Light the sky for you
Kill the children of Eden
If you want me to
Close the dead eyes of God
If they offended you

This is absolute
This is absolution...


Cars

Original version on The Pleasure Principle

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
I't's the only way to live
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me, please
If I open my door
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars


Ancients

Some can shine
Some can fly
Some are glorious
Some are ancient

Some are wise
Some are strong
Some are everything
You could dream of

Some are clouds
Some are rain
Float like angel wings
On the ocean

Some can sing
Songs of gods
Words so beautiful
They fall like raindrops

But none are like me
All I know is you're not with me
Like me

Some will cry
Cry for you
Take your pain away
While you're sleeping

Some will die
In your name
Give their soul to you
For safe keeping


Dominion Day

Original version on Exile

In my darkness
I hear Jesus crying
In my darkness
I see children savage and blind
In my darkness
I see dead men kneel before the cross
In my darkness
I hear the voice of evil

Disciples, dark angels
This is dominion day
'My demons, come to me
This is dominion day'

In his darkness
I can feel the storm come
In his darkness
Holy water burns my soul
In his darkness
A grave waits for you at heaven's gate
In his darkness
I hear screams that hide the voice of God

'Come children of Eden
Pray to me on dominion day'
'Pray for your salvation
Sanctuary on dominion day'
My soul save me

In his mercy
He will bring the disease
In his mercy
He will burn the oceans
In his mercy
He will tear the sky down
In his mercy
He will make pain eternal

'Your nightmare is breathing
This is dominion day'
Welcome to your saviour
This is dominion day
'This is my new kingdom
This is dominion day'
'Creation bleeds for me
This is dominion day'


A Prayer For The Unborn

Original version on Pure

So, I prayed
But you weren't listening
Making miracles?

So, I begged
But you were far away
Saving souls perhaps?

So, I screamed
But she was very small
And you have worlds to mend

So, she died
And you were glorious
But you were somewhere else

If you are my Shepherd
Then I'm lost and no-one can find me
If you are my Saviour
Then I'm dead and no-one can help me
If you are my Glory
Then I'm sick and no-one can cure me
If you light my darkness
Then I'm blind and no-one can see me

If you are my Father
Then love lies abandoned and bleeding
If you are my comfort
Then nightmares are real and deceiving
If you are my answer
Then I must have asked the wrong question
I'd spit on your heaven
If I could find one to believe in


Me! I Disconnect From You

Original version on Replicas

The alarm rang for days
You could tell from conversations
I was waiting by the screen
I couldn't recognise my photograph
Me, I disconnect from you

I was walking up the stairs
Something moved in silence
I could feel his mind decaying
Only inches away from me
And I disconnect from you

Please don't turn me off
I don't know what I'm doing outside
Me and the telephone that never rings
If you were me what would you do?
Me, I disconnect from you


Listen To My Voice

Original version on Pure

Listen to my voice
And please try to understand
The one you call Messiah is a lie

You are not the plan
And you're begining to annoy
You are just a game and it has won

You will never see
The places promised by your faith
You will never know eternal peace

The God you love is gone
He lies broken by your shame
The thing that took his place already dies

It will send angels
Send black angels for you

I am just a voice
That no-one else will hear
Only you are pure enough for truth

You must write 'The Book'
And then tear away belief
Only you can save the light of man

It will send angels
Send black angels for you


Rip

Original version on Pure

I'll get down on my knees
I'll do anything I can
I'll even walk upon water
I'll burn the soul of man

I'm so sick with need
I'm so sick with pain
I'll lay before the cross and pray
I'll bleed like holy rain

I've done nothing to you

I'll rip the skin from God's face
I'll say I'm searching for the truth
I'll steal the light from heaven's gate
If it can guide me to you

I'll give life to obsession
I'll give life to disease
I'll give you one last sin or cure
And then I'll do as I please

I've got something for you


This Wreckage

Original version on Telekon

And what if God's dead
We must have done something wrong
This dark facade ends
We're independent from someone

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you, meet you
Soon

We write suggestions
Suggesting fading to silence
And that must please you
My mirrors tarnished with 'no help'

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you meet you
Soon

(Japanese)
I leave you

Turn out these eyes
Wipe off my face
Erase me
Replay 'The end'
It's all just show
Erase you
I need to I need to I need to


Are Friends Electric?

Original version on Replicas

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing
In a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought
I remembered you


So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you

So I open the door
It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
'Please sit down'
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love


So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me


M.E.

Original version on The Pleasure Principle

And M.E. I eat dust
We're all so run down
I'd call it my death
But I'll only fade away
And I hate to fade alone
Now there's only M.E.

We were so sure
We were so wrong
Now it's over
But there's no one left to see
And there's no one left to die
There's only M.E.

Why should I care?
Why should I try?
Oh no. Oh no.
I turn off the pain
Like I turned off you all
Now there's only M.E.
