Until You've Sown The Seed is the fourth track on Alan Wilder's 1984 "Some Great Reward" Demo Tape, which consists of four tracks. The track does not appear on any official release and has never been performed live. This track's title is fan-given; it is sometimes referred to as "Cliché" due to the song's tongue-in-cheek lyrics. The song has alternatively been titled "Until You Saw The Sea" on some bootleg releases, which makes no sense in context and is probably a result of mishearing the lyrics due to a poorer sounding copy only being available at the time.

Lyrics

Remember Rome wasn't built in a day
Where there's a will, there must be a way
Or maybe it's like trying to find a needle in the hay

Remember two wrongs won't make a right
So don't give up without a fight
Cause we're just like ships that go bump in the night

And you won't reap the harvest
Until you've sown the seed

So don't start to run until you can walk
Try to look me in the eye when you talk
Cause we're about as similar as cheese and chalk

What comes from within can come from above
Like an iron hand in a velvet glove
Cause love is all, and all you need is love

And you won't reap the harvest
Until you've sown the seed

And you won't reap the harvest
Until you've sown the seed

And you won't reap the harvest
Until you've sown the seed

And you won't reap the harvest
Until you've sown the seed
