ARTIFICIAL PERFECT

Artificial Perfect

Techno DJ/producer Fentonís fortunes took a dramatic upturn when electronic/industrial godfather Gary Numan commissioned him to co-produce and co-engineer the album "Jagged". The duo's successful working relationship continued thru 2006 on a series of studio & live collaborations, including new versions of classic Numan tracks including "Are Friendsí Electric", "Down In The Park" and "Metal" as well as new material. Since completing the album, Fenton set up Industry Music, a music production company that is servicing other artists. Numan contributes to 4 tracks on this set; "The Leather Sea", "Slide Away", "Recall" and the first single from the album, "Healing".. 

The Leather Sea

She swims across the leather sea
Her skin reflects so beautifully
She looks to me, and turns away
So this is the last real day

Your God is guilty Your God is nothing 
Youíll see things heíll never see
Your God was nowhere 
A false confession
And never there to comfort me

Your God is nowhere, Your God is nothing 
Youíll seen things heíll never see
Your God is only a fallen idol
A ghost of sick humanity

There is a hate that burns within
Desolate places that Iíve been 
Come back to me, I need to say
Iíd breathe for you for just one day

Your God is guilty Your God is nothing 
Youíll see things heíll never see
Your God was nowhere 
A false confession
And never there to comfort me

Your God is nowhere, Your God is nothing 
Youíll seen things heíll never see
Your God is only a fallen idol
A ghost of sick humanity

Truth

Youíre so dysfunctional
Far too emotional
Think youíre unbreakable
Oh, so untouchable

Iím looking for the signs
A scarred shadow in Ďthe lightí
Only one thought remains
Iím smiling at your pain

I spit on your holy slaves
They swallow everything
I want them to believe
You are obscenity

Aint gonna come back to you
Aint gonna rise up to you

Get down upon your knees
No mercy, no reprieve
Come here and take the stand
Clean the blood off your hands

Do you need identity?
Called Christianity?
Why canít you realise?
Your fucking bible lies

Aint gonna come back for you
Aint gonna rise up for you

Healing

I've seen all mine 
Falling, Fall down
Do you know?
Do you know?
Obscene, I followed
I've seen some lies
Do you know?
Do you know?

Sometimes, I fall down
To you now
Do you know?
Sometimes I feel
Like I belong
To you now
To you now

And now, sometimes
It feels like I lie
To you now
Do you know?
Do you know?

I feel nothing
I feel no pain
You cant hurt me
You cant touch me

I'm not bleeding
I am healing
You will not steal
My dignity

Sometimes I fail
She protects me
She makes me feel
Humility 

She made me clean
She made me see
All I could be
My sanctuary

Sometimes I know
Some whores kneel down
Do you know?
Do you know?

Sometimes I'm low
Sometimes you fall
Do you know?
Do you know?

Everything Changes

I watched you slip away slowly
It's just so hard to let go of you
How blind was I not to realise?
I should have seen it in your eyes

I look inside our memories
I smile and cry and have to ask why
To follow the same old routine
Do you also tell them you can't breathe?

Sometimes it feels like everything changes
Sometimes it feels like nothing can save us
Sometimes I feel like your mask is bleeding
Sometimes I feel like nothing can save me


We fell apart at the frayed seams
She was two faces in one fake skin
Her flesh is transparent and clean
The needle pierces so deeply

And so, my final question
How does it feel to be so empty?
One day, you'll realise something
You fucking hurt me so badly


Sometimes it feels like everything changes
Sometimes it feels like nothing can save us
Sometimes I feel like your mask is bleeding
Sometimes I feel like nothing can save me

One Day

One day, the rain will fall and youíll be with me
I am the voice inside you now youíre gone
One day, the sun will shine a blinding memory
Iíll wait forever for that day to come now

One day, the rage will burn and take you slowly
I am the darkness waiting by the sun
One day, the glass will break and scar you deeply
I tried to tell you that my day would come now

Recall

Why wonít you try?
Why wonít you try again?
Why donít you cry?
Your rape, it lies again
I wonder why
Pain fades with time again
I want to fly
I want to fly again

Do you recall?
I caught your fall
Did you forget us?
I took your soul 

Donít try to lie
Donít try to lie again
I pull and fight
Your twisted mind again
Why canít I find
The morning light again
I want to shine
I want to shine again

Do you recall?
You made me crawl
Did you forget me?
You leave me cold

Slide Away

The 'low road' whispers
Come to me
Silent mother
Cries for me

The shadow's reaching
Pull at me
Help me father
Speak to me

It's unrelenting
It's unforgiving
I want to tell you
I want to hold you

Slide Away
I need someone to blame
There's nothing left of your beauty
I don't feel you inside me
Slide Away
I need to feel your pain
You lost your soul to the heavens
Don't ask for redemption

The skies are bleeding
Patiently
Dead love's losing
Purity

The fire is burning
Inside me
Love is blinding
Forgive me

Can you hear me?
Can you feel me?
I want to tell you
I want to hold you

Slide Away
I need someone to blame
There's nothing left of your beauty
I don't feel you inside me
Slide Away
I need to feel your pain
You lost your soul to the heavens
Don't ask for redemption

Burn

You had your Ďreasonsí
I canít forgive
Too many memories
I canít forget
Did you feel no shame?
You feel my pain?

You believed your lies
Didnít you?
You thought youíd saved me
Didnít you?
You feel no shame
You feel my pain

I want to need you
I want to dream you
I want to find you
I want to be you
I want to help you
I want to tear you
I want to taste you
I want to be you

You took my belief, my dreams
And me?
This is my vengeance, my voice
Iím free
Did you feel no shame?
You feel my pain?

I want to hurt you
I want to use you
I want to break you
I want to lose you

I want to burn you
I want to scar you
I want to bleed you
I will erase you

Machine

Can't believe
You would do this to me
Can't you see
That you've lied
And deceived
I believed you 
And now all i see
My disease 
In my dreams 
Is your face
When he wants you, 
And holds you.

Fuck you.

Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll tear the black from your heart and betray you 
Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll burn a cross on your skin just to leave you 

Do you feel?
Do you see?
Do you want me to be a machine?
Did I crawl?
Did I make you feel small?
Did I lie?
Did I hide?
Did I make you defy?
Should I stay?
Should I go?

Oh no, I don't think so.

Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll tear the black from your heart and betray you 
Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll burn a cross on your skin just to leave you 

Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll steal the flesh from your god and I'll lead you 
Wish there was something I could do to help you
I'll be the hands and the face that deceives you
