rikm Diamonds in the rough, every one of them. "Rare and Unreleased" brings together an amazing collection of tracks that may not have made it to album, that may have only been released on that obscure promo single, that may have gotten pushed to the back of the closet and forgotten about, but it really says something about a band when their unreleased tracks are as amazing as this, doesn't it?

Truly a revelation to hear all of these songs together and to bask in the glory of Curve once again...

Arms Out 04:46
Arms Out I've seen that chapter in your eyes it will tear us apart something i don't understand has taken hold of you and made you less than a man now here is open space that was filled with you that was filled with you solitude is the only answer to disconnect will be my shelter time is running out on you time won't be abused abused abused abused if only it were true i'd be in love with you if only you cared i would throw my arms out i would throw my arms out you called me a nutter on the phone you have watched me die with the secrets you have told it's the end of us it's the end of us pride is getting in your way it's only time that can truly say can say can say can say if only you knew when you're beaten black and blue when you come to care i will throw my arms out i will throw my arms out

Black Delilah I wish I had a letter To prove I'm clever Like a living will That I fulfil You know I hold secrets But where does that leave us Reaching out to the far beyond Leaping out to the great unknown I wish you knew better When binds are severed Think you're so on it When all you do is hum it Reaching out to the far beyond Leaping out to the great unknown How do you feel? I feel fine How does it feel? It feels good What does it say? Fuck you and go away Oh come what may I'm a sucker for sadness Confessions of madness That wash the debris away I'll side with the liars And sleep with the buyers When all else fails I just don't know That I'm being bad I only care 'Cos I've been feeling sad This is my own This is my own Limitation It's my best friend It's my best friend I wish I had a letter To prove I'm clever Like a living will That I fulfil You know I hold secrets But where does that leave us Reaching out to the far beyond Leaping out to the great unknown I wish you knew better When binds are severed Think you're so on it When all you do is hum it Reaching out to the far beyond Leaping out to the great unknown How do you feel? I feel fine How does it feel? It feels good What does it say? Fuck you and go away It's a creepy sustainer How they contain her Whenever she gets in a rage She'll bite at the business While crossing her fingers And says she's going away She just don't know That she's been feeling sad She only cares 'Cos she's been being bad This is her own This is her own Limitation

Cherry 05:50
Cherry Respire my desire lean on me fall on me respond and it will be answered answered cos I am waiting for the stars to change so we will talk again I'm impatient for the sun to change so we can meet again He was well spoken and unconnected caught his tongue it became infected he could breathe venom into the heart of an issue he could stare right at you and never see you he could crush faith he could crush minds he's a cynic and he love's it he believe in it it's more than a man could ever want In his own image in his being like this leather glove could be could be could be I am waiting for the sun to go down I'm impatient for the stars to change

My Brain Cuckoo Remix (free) 05:25
I was never just an ordinary girl who underwent a transformation I always thought I could see the stars and watch them grow in my hands but my mind was bigger than the world my choice was being born a girl when will I ever learn the truth without the fiction without the friction without the fiction when it's the same as before I conquer nothing or all but my mind was bigger than the world my choice was being born a girl I like to watch so nothing can hurt me I understand when your patience deserts you I think i've loved but i'm not so sure can someone tell me what i'm here for I was never just an ordinary girl who underwent a transformation but my mind was bigger tan the world my choice was being born a girl you deserted me left me on the street to be what I would be you never gave me your time made me feel dirty and unkind to feel the way I do about you has numbed me to all that's beautiful to feel the way I feel about you has made me wonder what I have to do to feel the way I do about you to feel the way I do about you

Got to give up life in this netherworld got to (gonna) go up to where the air is stale and live a life of pleasantries (and) mingle in the modern families Overground-from abnormality Overboard-for identity Overground-for normality Overboard-on identity This limbo is no place to be a digit (in)-Another space in another crowd I'm nameless bound Overground-from abnormality Overboard-for identity Overground-for normality Overboard-on (for) identity Overground-I'll be worse than me Overground-it's clear to me (Repeat) I'll be worse than me

Perish There's a ghost in my house I realise it's you you I see through you were right we don't know each other we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down Surely our souls will perish surely our souls will perish There's a ghost in my heart I'm not willing to free it symbolises me but I'm not ready I'm scared of the bugs a millionth of the size of me we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down Surely our souls will perish surely surely surely we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

Pink Girl With The Blues Pink girl Pink girl with the blues Pink girl with the blues Pink girl If I let it turn to dust I could play it large and loud I've got havoc in my veins I'm just laying out my aim When I get to stir it up I forget I'm strong and proud And I go cruising down the lanes I'm dying to be entertained By a festival crowd By a festival crowd When I get to stir it up I forget I'm strong and proud And I go cruising down the lanes I'm dying to be entertained I'm dying to be entertained Curious yellow Curious yellow If I let it turn to dust I could play it large and loud I've got havoc in my veins I'm just laying out my aim When I get to stir it up I forget I'm strong and proud And I go cruising down the lanes I'm dying to be entertained By a festival crowd By a festival crowd If I'd never let you in If I let it turn to dust I could play it large and loud I've got havoc in my veins Pink girl with the blues Oh yeah yeah Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Recovery The months go by And I don't think of you The signal is frail An imprint of what you do So I turn up the sound And you are nowhere I have learnt this To my cost But I maintain In the slow lane I maintain In the slow lane The scent goes by Still I smell of you You say I cry At the merest thought of you So you let me down To laugh at nothing I have learnt this For myself But I maintain In the slow lane I maintain In the slow lane So I turn up the sound And you are nowhere I have learnt this To my cost But I maintain In the slow lane I maintain In the slow lane Turn down the sound You are nowhere You let me down To laugh at nothing I have learnt this To my cost I have learnt this For myself

Sigh 03:49
Sigh The effort came through the back yard, screamed come into my parlour, I am the scarlet in your dreary life, I've come to save you and show you who I am. Sigh, sigh. Never look back just keep on moving straight ahead, never look back just keep on moving keep on moving. Sigh, sigh.

Today Is Not The Day If the winter was warm the centre would be you, silhouetted by the blue of the moon, we could change the world. The simplest place is the safest by far, only in the moments we are. It's the whispers that shiver and the deaf who deliver the best news of all. It's the smallest taste when you close your eyes, reminds me of your paradise, we could change. The whispers that shiver and the deaf who deliver the best news of all. Learn how to survive, today is not the day, today is not the day, learn how to bend the truth, today is not the day, today is not the day, learn how to thrill to keep yourself alive.

Triumph 04:49
Triumph When will you see me Without the lies that hold the key This is yours This is yours Your not a prison of your own making You control your thoughts They dont control you You are the master of your own work Your not a slave to your own ideals When will you be free Maybe we could meet for tea Your not a prison of your own making You control your thoughts They dont control you You are the master of your own work Your not a slave to your own ideals I am yours I am yours That's how it go's Dont you know dont you know I am yours I am yours.

I could be a lawyer with stratagems and ruses I could be a doctor with poultices and bruises I could be a writer with a growing reputation I could be the ticket man at Fulham Broadway station What a waste What a waste What a waste What a waste Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band First night nerves every one night stand I should be glad to be so inclined What a waste! What a waste! Rock and roll don't mind I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution I could be an inmate in a long-term institution I could lead to wide extremes, I could do or die I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch them gallop by What a waste What a waste What a waste What a waste Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band First night nerves every one night stand I should be glad to be so inclined What a waste! What a waste! Rock and roll don't mind Chose to play the fool in a six-piece band First night nerves every one night stand I should be glad to be so inclined What a waste! What a waste! Rock and roll don't mind What a waste! What a waste! Rock and roll don't mind Chose to play the fool in a six-piece band First night nerves every one night stand I should be glad to be so inclined What a waste! What a waste! Rock and roll don't mind
