Tommy Dakar - Lyrics - I USED TO RIDE THE WAVELENGTHS IN SEARCH OF A SOUND TO EASE MY SOUL A NEW WAY TO DRESS OR TO ADDRESS MY OUTRAGE IN THE WORDS OF A SONG NOW I AM DEAD DEAD ON MY FEET AND THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS MY WAY BACK HOME I HAD A NEED A NEED TO BE TOLD THAT I WAS UNIQUE BUT NOT ALONE I COULD HAVE BEEN WITH YOU MY LOVE AND TAKEN YOU ROUND THE WORLD IN A SONG NOW I HAVE NOTHING NOTHING AT ALL AND THE RADIO IS SILENT RADIO SILENCE
I USED TO RIDE THE WAVELENGTHS
IN SEARCH OF A SOUND TO EASE MY SOUL
A NEW WAY TO DRESS OR TO ADDRESS MY OUTRAGE
IN THE WORDS OF A SONG

NOW I AM DEAD
DEAD ON MY FEET
AND THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS
THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS MY WAY BACK HOME

I HAD A NEED
A NEED TO BE TOLD
THAT I WAS UNIQUE BUT NOT ALONE
I COULD HAVE BEEN WITH YOU MY LOVE
AND TAKEN YOU ROUND THE WORLD IN A SONG

NOW I HAVE NOTHING
NOTHING AT ALL
AND THE RADIO IS SILENT
RADIO SILENCE

You fight in someone else’s war You give in to your need You take and take and still want more No limit to your greed As the new day enters Old and shattered in its grief No-one remembers me Your lorry loads go rolling by Bright gun metal shine The wealthy and the well-fed In TV rooms recline As the newsreel flickers over torn and twisted dead No-one remembers me I have no strength to shout or cry And even time grows weak And in this vague and dusty hell It’s only death I seek As the hunger tightens Choking out the last in me No-one remembers me

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED You see no danger Nobody calling No need to enter panic mode It’s just people talking Just chat chat chat You ignore all the signals Forget to lock your door You’ve heard it all a thousand times You’re not listening anymore You have been warned Cover up your ears Close you eyes Cos you know them and it Comes as no surprise That it’s lies lies lies You gave them all that you had to give Your age your size and your sexual kicks And though you still don’t know where you’re going to A hundred thousand people follow you You have been warned This can’t be the end of the world This can’t be the exit It would be on all the TV news They’d send us all a message So you no danger There’s nobody calling You’ve heard it all a thousand times You don’t listen anymore You have been warned

This town is just like Babylon There’s a scaffold built on every lawn And if you should put just one foot wrong You’ll be swinging at the break of dawn This is death by hanging Death by hanging around Scuffing around the shopping mall, Nothing to do, nothing to say, nothing at all And heaven knows I ain’t no latter-day saint But Saturday ain’t what it used to be This town is just like Babylon There’s a scaffold built on every lawn And if you should put just one foot wrong You’ll be swinging at the break of dawn This is death by hanging Death by hanging around Yes this is death by hanging Death by hanging around

This is our last chance To salvage our romance You say you’ll give it one more go But it won’t last Now we’re sharpening our claws To the sound of slamming doors And clutching bedroom straws But it won’t last. How we cling to each other So we both fall together How we cling to one another So we both can fall together Forever. Now this love that you profess Is a rope around our necks And that's about as good as it gets But we can't stop And now we're sleeping back to back Cos we fatally attract And it gets no better than that But we can't stop How we cling to each other So we both fall together How we cling to one another So we both can fall together Forever.

This is green belt This is bible belt This is street cred This is drugs This is a law enforcement agent This is a small town thug This is white shirt This is cute flirt This is where your hero died This is the last chance you ever get to save your battered pride This is it This ain’t no dress rehearsal no no This is it This is well-meant This is hell-bent This is all you’d hoped to do This is hair loss This is dead loss This is what they think of you This is siren This is wailing This is a beating in my head This is I wish I’d never heard of you Or believed the things you said This is it I ain’t gonna tell you one more time no no This is it This ain’t no life after death This ain’t no eternal rest This is it This ain’t no parallel world This ain’t no fantasy girl This is it.

Ladies and gentlemen a big hand please For the next generation They’re gonna save our souls Save us all And put the world to rights tonight I can see them coming over the hill And swarming along the coast They’re gonna hit this town They’re gonna burn it down They’re gonna turn it upside down Come a little closer and I’ll tell you some home truths We’ve got a cupboard full of skeletons Daddy didn’t do it and I didn’t do it But we hope you’ll know what to do So don’t let them put the blame on you or tell you what to do You’ll get to heaven if you try You’ll get to heaven by and by Stop it now , it’s all you can do I said drop it now, it’s over to you If I could only help you see the way to go For crying out loud, can’t seem to please the crowd, Isn’t it funny, we can’t get it right for love nor money

END IT ALL Think we’ve seen enough, been through enough To understand why, you want to end it all So go ahead, please be my guest It’s just one more less If you want to end it all It’s a new day in paradise It’s a new day but you went away It’s a new day in paradise It’s a new day but you went away Some may grieve Some may mourn Shed a little tear Cos you want to end it all But we won’t judge Or shake our heads When you finally decide You’re gonna end it all

Unless I'm very much mistaken This is not the way forward They've got us sniffing out own arses They've got us running round and round and round in circles And you can take it now for granted This is not what we wanted And we've been taken for the fools we are again Unless I'm very much mistaken The man had a dream It was only a dream Revolution for sale
