    Andy: “Boy, do I have a soft spot for psychedelic singles. (No. . . you're kidding) What better than ‘I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night’ or ‘Get Me To The World On Time’ by the Electric Prunes. ‘My Friend Jack Eats Sugar Lumps’ by The Smoke, or Floyd's ‘See Emily Play.’ So did I burn to make an authentic sounding psychedelic record, that I actually contacted Gregsy in '78 (pre him being in the band) and suggested we moonlight together and do this project. Alas, time wasn't right and mostly I was too busy, away, fighting in the great new wave uprisings, to scratch my itch. By '84 I could want no longer, set phasing to stun.”

[Thanks to R. Stevie Moore]

Lyrics

The urge to take you grows more strong
For time had made me wait too long
Each watch I smash apart
Just adding to my power
Each watch I smash apart
Just bringing near the hour
of 25 o'clock, that's when you're going to be mine
25 o'clock, we'll be together 'til the end of time
At 25 o'clock

The ticking seconds hear them call
My spell of hours will make you fall
Each timer that I break
Will halt the flowing sands
Each timer that I break
Will put you in my hands
At 25 o'clock, that's when you're going to be mine
25 o'clock, we'll be together 'til the end of time
At 25 o'clock

Each watch I smash apart
Just adding to my power
Each watch I smash apart
Just bringing near the hour
of 25 o'clock
