Sat In Your Lap Lyrics
What it's about: Man's endless search for knowledge -- which is often limited by his unwillingness to devote the effort necessary to attain it.
Running time: 3:29
James And The Cold Gun Lyrics
What it's about: The story of a travelling gunfighter and the friends he left behind.
Running time: 6:20 (live version)
Babooshka Lyrics
What it's about: An insecure wife foolishly tests her husband's fidelity by disguising herself and attempting to seduce him. It's a look at our tendency to ruin things for ourselves.
Running time: 3:20
Suspended In Gaffa Lyrics
What it's about: Seeing something you really want (God in this case), then not being able to see or experience it ever again unless you work very hard. (It's a thematic first cousin to Sat In Your Lap, with a more religious bent.)
Running time: 3:56
Un Baiser D'enfant Lyrics (French/English)
What it's about: Un Baiser D'enfant is a French language version of The Infant Kiss. Based on the movie The Innocents, it's the story of a governess who is frightened by the adult feelings she has for her young male charge (who is possessed by the spirit of a grown man).
Running time: 3:00
The Mini LP was released only in the US and Canada. The US version had 5 tracks; the Canadian one included a 6th: Ne T'enfuis Pas.
