Breathing Lyrics
What it's about: A fetal spiritual being, very much aware of what's going on outside the womb, makes a desperate plea to save mankind from nuclear destruction. Kate says it was inspired by side 3 of Pink Floyd's The Wall.
3:00 into the song, there's a narration explaining how nuclear bomb sizes are determined by their flash duration. Here is the text.
Running time: 4:52 (single mix)
The Empty Bullring Lyrics
What it's about: A woman laments her husbands futile obsessions -- he's an injured matador who will not accept the fact that he can no longer fight.
Running time: 2:16
This is one of the rarest of all Kate picture sleeves (and on a more personal note, the item that turned my fascination into an obsession...).
