'The memory cheats...Ever seen a film that's stayed with you and then when you saw it again it didn't seem quite the same? Some time ago late at night while a little worse for wear on bubbly lemonade I came across a movie that i watched. It was some kind of American B movie type thing called 'We Are Still The Same'. Some of the special effects were Blue Peter egg box type things, though some of them were out of this world mind blowing. The film was basically about a living organism a bit like The Blob out of that old film, though I suppose it was more about the characters. The main guy was some American Football star who was coming to the end of his career and he was worried about failing performances on the pitch and in the bedroom. He was played by an actor who looked a lot like Pele! The sport was sort of futuristic with lasers and things. He meets an actress who can't act to save her life. At the time I thought she might have been played by Joan Collins, but it really wasn't. Together they have to survive the turmoil caused by this blob thing. There are also these 2 musician types, a little bit Bill & Ted or Wayne & Garth, though they are the first victims of AkaTheBlob while playing their song 'Like Us'. The first half of the movie is the world versus the Blob and then that's when it gets kinda weird! Strange government agents are at large along with mad professors and the stereotypical religious nut, an enigmatic figure named Positive Phibes who wants to save 100 people and rebuild society for his order 'The Symmetrical Arcade. Our heroes find their way here, though our two musician friends somehow find themselves in hell, looking something like a nightmarish Las Vegas. They manage to escape though where they escape to we don't see just yet. Our sporting hero finds out that the blob creature was man-made and the downfall of the world had been planned for some time, but was this just what they wanted him to believe? One of the shadowy government agents, a strange man named Negative Enemy, tells him all the truths or are they the lies? Somehow he manages to escape from the religious group and to begin a new life in what is left of the world. However, his love, the near character of the bad actress, remains in the confines of the new religion lost somehow in her imagined happiness. Our hero is happy to have escaped, but has he really escaped from his prison or merely made another one this time one of his own creation. Still he believes he is making up the story of his life for himself. The end was then a strange psychedelic journey for 5 minutes as we discover the Blob is alive and well being reborn in a laboratory. A creature that grows strong on the darkness of humanity somehow. We see growing in the blob this time the 2 musicians who had left what they thought was hell but it was really a heaven and they were somehow reborn as part of this creature. Camera spins round onto Negative Enemy laughing quietly at first then louder then maniacally. Fade to end, rub tired eyes, go to bed. About 10 years later I managed to catch the film again but this time nothing quite seemed the same. Some parts didn't happen and some parts I had forgotten about or had no recollection of at all. The memory had cheated once more....'

Track Name: Rising
I should be rising all the way into heaven,
you've got me falling half way to hell,
I should be rising to the top like the cream of the crop, oh well,

I could've lifted the world in my own hands,
now i can't rise to this occasion in yours,
will it start will it stop will I get out on top, this lost cause,

You've got me standing in corridors and standing in the walls,
this meaning has no meaning it means nothing at all,
you've got me standing in the changing place even after all,
I should be rising rising...

You've got me standing in corridors and standing in the walls,
this meaning has no meaning it means nothing at all,
you've got me standing in the changing place even after all,
I should be rising rising...

'I am the monster, you are the monster,
I am the monster, you are the monster,
I am the monster, you are the monster,
I am the monster and rising makes me feel good',

I should be rising rising...
Track Name: Near Character
You are the near character, So badly received,
You are the near character, so poorly conceived,
You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts baby,
You are the near character so seldom seen,

Standing behind the screen i see you, standing behind the screen i see you,
No lines, no life, no nothing, no lines, no life, no nothing,

You are the lost character, still as can be,
You are the lost character, just staring at the screen,
You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts baby,
You the near character, so badly received,

Standing behind the screen i see you, standing behind the screen i see you,
No lines, no life, no nothing, no lines, no life, no nothing,

You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts, You can buy all that hurts baby...
Track Name: Dust Breeding
'Count it on the hands of the clock, Count it on the hands of the clock,
I don't know what it is and i don't know what it is not,
Count it down from 10 down to 1, Count it back from 1 down to 10,
I don't know what it is and I don't know what it was then,

The worry spider sits in your soul just laughing,
The worry spider sits in your soul just laughing,
The sound inside your head is just dust breeding,
The sound inside your head is just dust breeding,

We don't care about the name of your god,
We don't care about the name of your god,
Everyone remembers well everyone remembers,,,,i forgot!

The worry spider sits in your soul just laughing,
The sound inside your head is just dust breeding,
The worry spider sits in your soul just laughing,
The sound inside your head is just dust breeding....'

Here in this city, the world is made of neon,

Track Name: These Are The Truths
'You want answers, are you ready for them?'
the life you lead is only in your head'

When the sky falls down, you're just another symptom of it all,

'It's so simple and it's right in front of you,
the world you wanted will break your heart in two',

When the sky falls down, you're just another symptom of it all,

These are the truths and these are the lies,
we warned you about these days last time,
These are the truths and these are the lies,
we warned you about these days last time,

'Our days are numbered now, one in one hundred out,
the city's crying loud we built it all for you',

When the sky falls down, you're just another symptom of it all,
when the sky falls down, you're just another symptom of it all,

These are the truths and these are the lies,
we warned you about these days last time,
These are the truths and these are the lies,
we warned you about these days last time,
Track Name: Up The Story
Standing where the roof top used to be,
wonder if you ever think of me?
will we make it back again and will we ever see,
standing where the rooftop used to be,

What they told us me and you,
what they told us was not true,
What they told us me and you,
what they told us was not true,

We're still the same it's the world that has changed,
we're not safe we're not sorry just making up the story,

Wading through the ocean again,
never made it back to see your face,
hope that you are striking out,
and hope that you are free,

What they told us me and you,
what they told us was not true,
What they told us me and you,
what they told us was not true,

We're still the same it's the world that has changed,
we're not safe we're not sorry just making up the story,

The world is run by far out people, living far away
they had their plans for you and I they changed them yesterday,

What they told us me and you,
what they told us was not true,

We're still the same it's the world that has changed,
we're not safe we're not sorry just making up the story...
Track Name: You Are The Air
You are the air, you are the air,

I don't know where i come from,
I don't know where i belong,
days they fall like crazy paving, over and over and over again,
I don't know where i come from,
I don't know where i belong,
days they fall like crazy paving, over and over and over again,

You are the air, you are the air, you are the air, you are the air,

Is that the end of the story? Is that the end of the story?...
