** "Murder Story" is built around a piano riff which resembles the synth of the albums' title track "Life In A Day." The lyrics describe an insecure loner, who gets "so scared if I don't get out at night" and has "nightmares of places people go to meet." Around halfway through the song, it becomes much faster, as both verses are repeated by Jim Kerr in a [[SanitySlippage much more panicked tone.]] The song gets much noisier with distortion and clashing melodies, while vocals over dubs begin to frantically sing "She was my/your sister" and "It wasn't me." Then it after it seems it can't get any crazier, Jim finally confesses [[spoiler:"IT WAS ME! IT WAS ME!"]] ... [[LastNoteNightmare and then the album ends.]]

* Their third album, Empires And Dance, should get special mention. While lyrically, it's not as outwardly dark as Real To Real Cacophony, but their vagueness can be quite disturbing, Jim saying things as ambiguous as "These reptiles scream" and "[[ParanoiaFuel Run run run.]] The hollow man," and "Some friends of mine I thought were dead are coming back. What are you doing coming back? [[SuddenlyShouting JACK!"]] The production is outright unsettling at times, with random shouts, nightmarish echoes, and off-sounding notes which make for some real NightmareFuel. The worst offender is most definitely "This Fear Of Gods" which closes side one of the record. A nervous sounding synth and bass line throughout, with such lovely lyrics as "Violence and vivisection. Violence and vivisection. [[MadnessMantra Lust, lust, lust, lust.]]"

* "Pleasantly Disturbed" and "Murder Story" off their first album. "Pleasantly Disturbed," which closes the first side of the LP, is structured mainly of an ominous guitar riff from Charlie Burchill (who also provides some mournful violins later on the song) a slow pounding beat, and lyrics which hint at a girl named Susan running from a stalker. Nearing the end it gets very upbeat, but you can't shake the feeling you had at the beginning of the song even then.

** The first track on the album''Real To Real'' is known to start off ominously enough before becoming very creepy a minute in. "Naked Eye" which follows contains some very odd lyrics and later on, "Carnival" contains the classic trope of creepy circus music to contrast with the anger of its chorus. "Factory" paints a very dark picture of someone stuck in a hopeless job who has a nervous breakdown. "Film Theme", an instrumental, seems to have been written to evoke Vampirish films. Even though it's one of the most upbeat songs on the album musically, "Calling Your Name" seems to be someone mourning a dead lover.
