Any Chrome fans out there?

Trying to figure out the lyrics of some of my all time favourite tracks by my all time favourite band Chrome.

First, this one:


what I understand most of the time is the following (but it seems wrong)

to end the craving
takes my eyes from you
it puts me in a field far away from you
don't know why
they have faces that change
the sounds outside
are still the same

walking and looking for you

?? ?? has been here
??
now's your time when you could sleep
sometimes the walking and looking
for the dome lost in the rain

walking and looking for you

now you've come a long way from home
without contact you're on your own
is something new hanging on your face
when they arrive they may come to your place

walking and looking for you



I recently discovered there is also a live version, but it has totally different lyrics:

you look like there is something hanging on your face
you wonder how you got to this place

there's something new that you would call home
it's far away but it's just a dome

walking and looking for you

your friends are all dead or they're gone
but the rain still carries on

you don't know if you will make it back
you got something tied on your bag

walking and looking for you

now you see a light far away
you don't know how many days you may go
they all hope you come right way
now you found it you found your place

walking and looking for you


I like both versions, but unfortunately the second version doesn't help me to figure out the original version

Can some one with a better grasp of the language correct this for me?
Anybody else around here who's been a fan?

I’ve got Half Machine Lip Moves but I don’t listen to it so much these days.

When I was a teenager in the 80s there was a great radio show that played Chrome.

I listened to Half Machine Lip Moves, Blood on the Moon and the Damon Edge stuff over and over.
Then I moved on, didn't listen to that for decades, had all my records lost, but recently I discovered that pretty much everything is on Youtube, plus lots of things I didnt know.
Also I didnt know the Helios Creed stuff which I also like in a way.

And I realize it had and has a lot of influence on me.
I am not sure what it is that fascinates me. It probably helps that I only understand and understood just fractions of the lyrics.

I would love to to a sampler with various artists and cover versions of Chrome songs.
But have to find the artists first...

I only met two or three people during my live who ever listened Chrome.

I was the same with other stuff from then - Throbbing Gristle, Residents. Didn’t listen to it for ages, then a few years ago got back into it - esp TG - and loved it
