Then you see it happen again The world turned over Wouldn't it be something to live Your Life On Mars Or at least demanding Of some kind of masquerade. I never never ever believed In things uncertain Hanging round the corner Just when do you start doing time In the case of I, my, me and mine October Nineteen sixty nine.

Damon Gough's fifth album in six years- and first for EMI UK- sports a rah-rah title, well-manicured production, and broad themes of love and loss. Even worse, "The Time of Times" is one of the more listenable moments on Born in the . With its rah-rah title, well-manicured production, and simplified themes of love and loss, the new album is a blatant rush at England's pop charts.
