Themes From "The Nightwatchman". These tracks were variously included as 'B' sides of singles from 'Infected' (1986), but pre-date the previous album 'Soul Mining' (1983), being unreleased from earlier projects.

This version starts with drums, which only come in half way through in the album version and is longer by a couple of minutes.

Sweet Bird of Truth" is about the USA's military involvement in Middle East politics. Johnson said, "The idea of that single was to provide a musical interpretation of the sort of cultural conflict that occurs when the ultimate Western power takes on the sort of Eastern fundamentalism that you'll find in the Arab nations. Johnson wanted to release "Sweet Bird of Truth" as the album's first single in April 1986, but this coincided with. Despite critical acclaim for both the album and accompanying video film, the making of Infected took its toll on Johnson. Already unwell and suffering from bouts of paralysis before making the film due to his heavy intake of vodka and drugs, Johnson's failure to look after his health and insistence on pushing the boundaries during the making of the videos had a lasting impact.

CHORUS This is your captain calling-";with an urgent warning"; We're above the Gulf of Arabia-";our altitude is falling"; & I can't hold her up-";there's no time for thinking"; All hands on deck-";this bird is sinking"; Across the beaches and cranes, rivers and trains all the money I've made-bodies I've maimed. Time was when I seemed to know, Just like any other GI Joe Should I cry like a baby, or die like a man While all the planets like wars start joining hands, Oh what a heaven-what a hell!! Y'know there's.
