Radio Ga Ga

Radio – radio
I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds – invaded by Mars
You made ’em laugh – you made ’em cry
You made us feel like we could fly
Radio

So don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
radio goo goo
radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows – we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
How music changes through the years

Let’s hope you never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around ‘cos we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Someone still loves you

Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)

You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

It’s A Hard Life

I don’t want my freedom
There’s no reason for living with a broken heart

This is a tricky situation
I’ve only got myself to blame
It’s just a simple fact of life
It can happen to any one

You win – you lose
It’s a chance you have to take with love
Oh yeah – I fell in love
But now you say it’s over and I’m falling apart

Yeah yeah
It’s a hard life
To be true lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It’s a long hard fight
To learn to care for each other
To trust in one another right from the start
When you’re in love

I try and mend the broken pieces
Ooh, I try to fight back the tears
Ooh, they say it’s just a state of mind
But it happens to everyone

How it hurts (yeah) – deep inside (oh yeah)
When your love has cut you down to size
This life is tough – on your own
Now I’m waiting for something to fall from the skies
I’m waiting for love

Yes it’s a hard life
Two lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It’s a long hard fight
To learn to care for each other
To trust in one another – right from the start
When you’re in love

Yes it’s a hard life
In a world that’s filled with sorrow
There are people searching for love in every way
It’s a long hard fight
But I’ll always live for tomorrow
I’ll look back at myself and say I did it for love (ooh)
Yes I did it for love – for love – oh I did it for love

Man On The Prowl

Oh yeah
I’m gonna take a little walk on the wild side
I’m gonna loosen up and get me some gas
I’m gonna get me some action
Go crazy, driving in the fast lane
My baby left me alone
She done me dirty and I’m feeling so lonely
So come home, come home
If you don’t you’re gonna break my heart

Man on the prowl
You better watch out
I’m on the loose and I’m looking for trouble
So look out (yeah yeah) – look out (yeah yeah)
I’m a man on the prowl

I don’t wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll steady
I just wanna be low down trash
I wanna go to the movies
All I wanna do is sit on my ass – ooh
So honey come home (come home come home)
Don’t leave me when I’m feeling so lonely
Come home (yeah yeah) – come home (yeah yeah)
If you don’t you’re gonna break my heart

Man on the prowl
You better watch out
I’m on the loose and I’m looking for trouble
So look out (yeah yeah) – look out (yeah yeah)
‘Cause I’m a man on the prowl

Well I keep dreaming about my baby
But it ain’t gonna get me nowhere
(Bap bap) hey
I gonna teach my baby dancin’
(Bap bap)
But I ain’t no Fred Astaire

So baby look out – I’m a man on the prowl
Look out – man on the prowl – yeah
Yeah – baby, baby, baby look out, yeah – man on the prowl

Baby come home
I’m on the loose and I’m looking for trouble
Baby come home – oh yeah
‘Cause I’m a man on the prowl
So honey come home – come home
‘Cause I’m a man on the prowl – yeah
Man on the prowl – yeah
Hey, stay with it
Loosen up
Wooh yep ha wooh ha
Yeah

Machines (or ‘Back To Humans’)

– “Machines machines machines machines”
– “Machines machines machines machines aaah”

It’s a machines world
Don’t tell me I ain’t got no soul
When the machines take over
It ain’t no place for rock and roll – ha

They tell me I don’t care
But deep inside I’m just a man
They freeze me they burn me
They squeeze me they stretch me
With smoke-blackened pistons of steel they compress me
But no-one, but no-one, but no-one can wrest me away
Back to humans

– “We have no disease, no troubles of mind”
– “No thank you or please, no regard for the time”
– “We never cry, we never retreat”
– “We have no conception of love or defeat”

What’s that machine noise
It’s bytes and megachips for tea
It’s that machine, boys
With random access memory
Never worry, never mind
Not for money, not for gold

Yeah
It’s software, it’s hardware
It’s heartbeat is time-share
It’s midwife’s a disk drive
It’s sex-life is quantised
It’s self-perpetuating a parahumanoidarianised

Back to humans
Back to humans

– “Back to machines machines machines”

Woooh

I Want To Break Free

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free

I’ve fallen in love
I’ve fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love

It’s strange but it’s true
Hey, I can’t get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, baby
Oh how I want to be free
Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on
I can’t get used to living without, living without
Living without you by my side
I don’t want to live alone, hey
God knows, got to make it on my own
So baby can’t you see
I’ve got to break free

I’ve got to break free
I want to break free, yeah
I want, I want, I want, I want to break free
Ooh yeah
I want to break – yeah eah

Keep Passing The Open Windows

This is the only life for me – yeah
Surround myself around my own fantasy
You just gotta be strong and believe in yourself
Forget all the sadness ’cause love is all you need
Love is all you need

Do you know what it’s like to be alone in this world
When you’re down and out on your luck and you’re a failure
Wake up screaming in the middle of the night
You think it’s all been a waste of time
It’s been a bad year
You start believing everything’s gonna be alright
Next minute you’re down and you’re flat on your back
A brand new day is beginning
Get that sunny feeling and you’re on your way (way)

Just believe – just keep passing the open windows
Just believe – just keep passing the open windows

Do you know how it feels when you don’t have friend (friend)
Without a job and no money to spend
You’re a stranger

All you think about is suicide
One of these days you’re gonna lose the fight
You better keep out of danger – yeah
That same old feeling just keeps burning deep inside (inside)
You keep telling yourself it’s gonna be the end
Oh – get yourself together
Things are looking better everyday (day)

Just believe – just keep passing the open windows
Just believe – just keep passing the open windows

This is the only life for me – yeah
Surround myself around my own fantasy

You just gotta be strong and believe in yourselves
Forget all the sadness ’cause love is all you need

Just believe – just keep passing the open windows
Just believe – just keep passing the open windows

You just gotta be strong and believe in yourselves
Forget all the sadness ’cause love is all you need yeah
Love is all you need
Oh baby love is all you need

Just believe – just keep passing the open windows
Just believe – just keep passing the open windows

Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Keep passing the open windows
















Hammer To Fall

Yeah
Here we stand or here we fall
History won’t care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady mercy won’t be home tonight

Yeah, you don’t waste no time at all
Don’t hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Hey, we’re just waiting
For the hammer to fall – yeah

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays

Yeah, toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it’s time for the hammer to fall – yeah

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it’s all the same – oh no – oh no
Oh lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane – oh no – yeah
Baby now your struggle’s all vain

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can’t be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for ?
Ah, just surrender and it won’t hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
Eh, while you’re waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall
Hey, yes, it’s starting to fall eh, hammer, you know
Yeah, hammer to fall, wooh, ah, hey, eh woowoo, ha eh hammer
Waiting for the hammer to fall baby
Yeah yeah while you’re waiting for the hammer to fall
Give it to me one more time

Is This The World We Created…?

Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created…?
What did we do it for
Is this the world we invaded
Against the law
So it seems in the end
Is this what we’re all living for today
The world that we created

You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by

Wooh, is this the world we created…?
We made it all our own
Is this the world we devastated, right to the bone
If there’s a God in the sky looking down
What can he think of what we’ve done
To the world that he created
