About This Album

Lyrics

  • Planet Earth

    Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Calling Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth

  • [Intro]
    Sound of Camera shutters flickering

    [Verse 1]
    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the four-line track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    [Verse 2]
    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air
    Cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture)
    Girls on film

    [Verse 3]
    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night
    I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    [Chorus-Outro]
    Girls on film (she's more than a lady)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (what you doing)
    Girls on film...

  • [Verse 1: Simon le Bon]
    Dark in the city, night is a wire
    Steam in the subway, earth is afire

    [Verse 2: Simon le Bon]
    Woman you want me, give me a sign
    And catch my breathing even closer behind

    [Chorus 1: Simon le Bon]
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    [Verse 3: Simon le Bon]
    Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
    I'll be upon you by the moonlight side

    [Verse 4: Simon le Bon]
    High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
    You feel my heat, I'm just a momеnt behind

    [Chorus 2: Simon le Bon]
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm aftеr you
    Scent and a sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    [Bridge: Simon le Bon]
    Hungry like the wolf

    [Chorus 3: Simon le Bon]
    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    I smell like I sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    [Chorus 4: Simon le Bon]
    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

  • [Verse 1]
    Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise
    Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice
    With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    You catch that mirror way out west
    You know you're something special
    And you look like you're the best

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Verse 2]
    I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
    Two of a billion stars it means so much to me
    Like a birthday or a pretty view
    But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Tenor Saxophone Solo]

    [Bridge]
    Hey now woo look at that
    Did he nearly run you down?
    At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive
    You make me feel alive, alive, alive
    I'll take my chance 'cause luck is on my side or something
    I know what you're thinking
    I tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twists across a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande
    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
    Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
    From mountains in the North down to the Rio Grande

  • [Verse 1]
    You saw me standing by the wall
    Corner of a main street
    And the lights are flashing on your window sill
    Take a chance like all dreamers
    You can't find another way (Do-do-do-do-do)
    You don't have to dream it all
    Just live a day (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Verse 2]
    Pretty looking road
    I try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Don't ask me why, I'll keep my promise
    Melt the ice (Do-do-do-do-do)
    And you wanted to dance
    So I asked you to dance
    But fear is in your soul (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Some people call it a one-night stand
    But we can call it paradise (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Bridge]
    Do-do-do-do-do
    Do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do

    [Outro]
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after

  • [Intro]
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now

    [Verse 1]
    I made a break, I run out yesterday
    Tried to find my mountain hideaway
    Maybe next year, maybe no go

    I know you're watching me
    Every minute of the day, yeah
    I've seen the signs
    And the looks and the pictures
    That give your game away, yeah

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    [Chorus 1]
    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same?
    'Cause you don't let it show

    [Verse 2]
    People stare and cross the road from me
    And jungle drums
    They all clear the way for me
    Can you read my mind?
    Can you see in the snow?

    And fiery demons all dance
    When you walk through that door
    Don't say you're easy on me
    You're about as easy as a nuclear war

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    [Chorus 1]
    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same?
    'Cause you don't let it show

    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Please, please tell me now
    Can you see what makes me blow?
    Can you see how much I'd die
    Every time it passes by?
    Please, please tell me now
    What it takes to make it show
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should know?

  • [Verse 1]
    Telegram force and ready
    I knew this was a big mistake
    There's a fine line drawing
    My senses together
    And I think it's about to break

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Verse 2]
    Nightshades on a warning
    Give me strength at least give me a light
    Give me anything even sympathy
    There's a chance you could be right

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Gonna move up to the borderline

    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    The-The-The-The-The reflex
    The reflex
    The reflex
    The reflex-fle-fle-fle-fle-flex

    [Verse 1]
    You've gone too far this time
    But I'm dancing on the Valentine
    I tell you somebody's fooling around
    With my chances on the danger line

    I'll cross that bridge when I find it
    Another day to make my stand, oh woah
    High time is no time for deciding
    If I should find a helping hand, oh woah

    [Refrain]
    Why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child, who's waiting by the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves you answered with a question mark

    [Verse 2]
    I'm on a ride, and I want to get off
    But they won't slow down the roundabout
    I sold the Renoir and TV set
    Don't wanna be around when this gets out

    [Refrain]
    So, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Bridge]
    Why? Why-Why-Why? (Yeah)
    Why? Why-Why-Why? (Yeah)
    Why don't you use it?

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child, he's waiting in the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves an answer with a question mark

    [Post-Chorus]
    Fle-fle

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Refrain]
    So, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child who's waiting by the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves me answered with a question mark

    [Outro]
    Oh, the reflex, what a game, he's hiding all the cards
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark—

    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys
    Wild boys
    Wild! Boys!

    [Verse 1]
    The wild boys are calling
    On their way back from the fire
    In august moon's surrender to
    A dust cloud on the rise
    Wild boys fallen far from glory
    Reckless and so hungered
    On the razors edge you trail
    Because there's murder by the roadside
    In a sore afraid new world

    [Pre-Chorus]
    They tried to break us
    Looks like they'll try again

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

    [Verse 2]
    You got sirens for a welcome
    There's bloodstain for your pain
    And your telephone been ringing while
    You're dancing in the rain
    Wild boys wonder where is glory
    Where is all you angels
    Now the figureheads have fell
    And lovers war with arrows over
    Secrets they could tell

    Pre-Chorus
    They tried to tame you
    Looks like they'll try again

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

    [Refrain]
    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys
    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always

    [Chorus ]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always

    [Outro-Chorus ]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always, wild boys

  • [Verse 1]
    Meeting you with a view to a kill
    Face to face in secret places, feel the chill

    Nightfall covers me, but you know the plans I'm making
    Still overseas, could it be the whole Earth opening wide
    A sacred why, a mystery gaping inside
    A week is why, until we...

    [Chorus]
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire
    To fatal sounds of broken dreams
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire

    [Verse 2]
    The choice for you is the view to a kill
    Between the shades assassination standing still

    Earth's crystal tears, the fall of snowflakes on your body
    First time in years to drench your skin in lover's rosy stain
    A chance to find the phoenix for the flame
    A chance to die, but can we...

    [Chorus]
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire
    To fatal sounds of broken dreams
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire

    When all we see is the view to a kill

    [Verse 1]
    I can't read about it
    Burns the skin from your eyes
    I'll do fine without it
    Here's one you don't compromise
    Lies come hard in disguise
    They need to fight it out
    Not wild about it
    Lay your seedy judgements
    Who says they're part of our lives?

    [Chorus]
    You own the money
    You control the witness
    I'll leave you lonely
    Don't monkey with my business
    You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
    I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
    That's why I've done it again

    [Refrain]

    [Verse 2]
    Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
    So long as boys make a noise
    Fools run rings to break up
    Something they'll never destroy

    And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
    Don't ask me to bleed about it
    I need this blood to survive

  • Working on the weekend, baby
    She's working all through the night
    A jump into the deep end gave her
    The evidence she required
    Takes five, she's got pearls
    Don't fake it when it comes to making money
    So she smiles, but that's cruel
    If you know what she thinks
    If you knew what she was after

    Sometimes she wonders
    And she laughs in her frustration

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

    Doctors of the revolution gave us
    The medicine we desired
    Besides being absolutely painless
    It's a question of compromise
    They got steel, so cool
    To get angry at the weekend
    Then go back to school
    So big deal, it's what rules
    When it comes to making money
    Say yes, please, thank you

    Sometimes you wonder
    And ask yourself the question

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

    I know the answer
    But I'm asking you the question

    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour?
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the skin trade

  • [Verse 1: Simon le Bon]
    I don't mind if you're keeping someone else behind
    I don't care cause you've got something I can share
    Hey, take a chance, even if it's only
    Only while we're dancing in the
    Light of your second sight because
    When you understand me
    You might feel good around me now

    [Chorus: Simon le Bon]
    I don't want your love to bring me down
    I don't want your love so turn it around

    [Verse 2: Simon le Bon]
    I won't turn you out if you've got someone else
    Someone else you care about
    Because you must realise
    My obsessive fascination is in your imagination
    (Now pick it up!)

    [Chorus: Simon le Bon (Joniece Jamison)]
    I don't want your love to bring me down (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)
    I don't want your love so turn it around (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)

    [Bridge: Simon le Bon (Joniece Jamison)]
    Your rhythm is the power to move me
    It's something you control completely
    I don't want your love
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love)

    [Verse 3: Simon le Bon]
    I like noise cause, I like waking up the house
    I cannot sit down. I can't shut my mouth
    But when you understand me
    You might feel good around me
    (Now pick it up!)

    [Interlude]

    [Bridge: Simon le Bon (Joniece Jamison)]
    Your rhythm is the power to move me
    It's something you control completely
    I don't want your love
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love)

    [Outro: Simon le Bon (Joniece Jamison) (Simon le Bon)]
    I don't want your love to bring me down (I don't want your love) (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)
    I don't want your love so turn it around (I don't want your love) (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love) (Rythm, rythm)
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love) (Rythm, rythm is the power)
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love) (Rythm, rythm)
    I don't want your love (I don't want your love) (Rythm)

    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    Spend your money on the corner now
    Know you've gotta save some
    For the shoeshine boys
    You've been pulling 'em
    By the hand inside
    Oh...collecting all your toys
    If you need a lead heaven now
    Just stick around--
    You're going to be there
    What do you dare?
    What do you care?
    What does your heart say now?

    All she wants is
    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    Divine intervention
    Couldn't keep the word
    From leaking out
    With your pleasure in suspension
    Not to mention
    What you hang it around
    If you need a lead to heaven, yeah
    A place to share
    In every position
    What do you dare?
    What do you care?
    What does your heart say now?

    All she wants is
    All she wants is
    All she wants is

    More...
