Ants Invasion

Album: Kings Of The Wild Frontier (1980)
  • Ten-thirty-five and I hope I've made
    The right decision
    Heart is beating I'm alive
    But I don't call this living
    Rationalize 'til I'm blue in the face
    You cannot lose if you throw the race
    I'm still searching for the
    Ants invasion

    Ten-thirty-six and I hope I've made
    The right decision
    Ninety eight point four's the bore
    With twenty twenty vision
    You want a thrill so you come and see me
    A cheap line in fantasy
    But I'm still searching for the
    Ants invasion

    If I'd the courage
    I would make my way home
    Too many antics in the forbidden zone

    Ten-thirty-eight and I think I've made
    The wrong decision
    Another lifeless man with a strange incision
    I hope that insect doesn't see me
    He's not renowned for his courtesy
    I'm not searching for the
    Ants invasion

  • Chicken Joe from Cairns, AustraliaI studied entomology with Adam at Cambridge. He was an outstanding student. He appeared obsessed with the venom from a common ant. I guess that's why he was always hooked on 'tread on an Ant.' But when I said we need some of the older grooves he said 'no way... Mor teen'!!!
