about

A mission statement -- before electroclash or the post-punk revival. The Linger Effect identifies as New Wave above anything else.

Later included on Beautiful Machines.

lyrics

everything's working in my favour
i can speak so clearly to you right now
my head and heart are both in flight
motor functions functioning right now
work these hands and work this mouth
i will work it out for you right now

my hands are moving, the air is rushing,
through my fingertips it moves right now
through the last empty inches to you
through the last empty inches i move right now
i will speak my name to you
the new wave will start today - it starts right now

everything's working in my favour
everything's working in the fervor now
your eyes are looking into mine
my hands are working overtime right now

through the last empty inches to you
through the last empty inches i move right now
the new wave will start today
the new wave will start today - it's starting now
