Listen to Down In The Park by Gary Numan

The sun was heartily ablaze
The moon remarkably behaved
The stars were partially displaced
Yet keen to bargain for amaze
.
The sun was artfully ablaze
The moon a masterpiece unframed
The stars of harmony’s arrange
And yours the heart of seasoned brave
.
Look at how far you have come
The journey you have taken
Since your favour reawakened
Since the tree of life was shaken
And its leaves fell in succumb
Look at how far you have come
.
Look at how far you have come
The journey you have taken
Since your favour reawakened
Since the tree of life was shaken
And its leaves fell in succumb
Look at how far you have come
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Intrepid (repeat)
.
Repeated mistakes were well placed for resuming
Strategically placed to narrate your conclusion
Brazen nights stifling
Danger days looming
Needed to break one remaining illusion
Seemed no more to life than bruising
Bleeding raw saline solution
In the breadline
Barely moving
Deadline met
And yet unproven
Deadline met
And yet unproven
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Fated repeatedly
Stated defeatedly
Faced with indecency
Raided unceasingly
.
Raided unceasingly
Raided unceasingly
Raided unceasingly
Raided unceasingly
.
Mainline leaking
Plainly speaking
Rate exceeding
Aching feeling
Reeling days
Revealing ways
To further heed obscene delays
While evening haze decayed
The greater meaning
Evening haze decayed
The greater meaning
.
Fingering subjection
Rescinding recollection
Of hinder
Regression
Deep stinging correction
Castrating will for a nickel and a shilling
Making a killing from incomprehension
Lactating milk from the teats of dissension
Spilling unwilling to break straining tension
Draining each major vein aiming to strengthen
Taking great pains to
Delay you
Betray you
Abuse through uncouth
Condescension
Make gained favour unmentioned
To labour beneath
Extreme misapprehension
Extreme misapprehension
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Intrepid (repeat)
.
The race appeared well run
As disgrace neared from every direction
To undress you of the web in fever spun
Your arms and legs were bound
Yet still you stood your ground profoundly
Then transcended mortal boundary
As your vesture came undone
Transcended mortal boundary
As your vesture came undone
.
The sun was heartily ablaze
The moon remarkably behaved
The stars were partially displaced
Yet keen to bargain for amaze
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
Each day and night a light and shade of you to celebrate regardless of the blight of life’s degenerate and harness
.
The sun was artfully ablaze
The moon a masterpiece unframed
The stars of harmony’s arrange
And yours the heart of seasoned brave
.
To emanate the faith you do
Costumes the nature of your bloom
Your private chamber fames the view
Before you favourably strewn
Before you favourably strewn
.
In light of shade
Innately grew
For either way
You paid your dues
You paid your dues
You paid your dues
.
Look at how far you have come
To salute the skies that loop reprise of youthful rise from old bones revolutionized
To be so whole dehumanized
Tolls bell foretold no scrutinize
The chime of ever truthful eyes
That cared to come undone
Cared to come undone
Come undone
Come undone
.
There will be storms
They will be fierce
And true to form
You’ll face your fears
Embrace the hail
Prevail
Refresh
Each storm to pass
When clouds undress
At behest of blest address
You wrest the more from scores of less
Bereft the stress that second guessing tends to overstretch
No less possessed by fresh beginnings
All five senses sense you’re winning
Even when your head is spinning
Blessèd essence is refilling
Overspilling with the willing to see every dream fulfilling
At your leisure
Buried treasure
Ferries pleasure
To each tether never severed less endeavoured to remember whichsoever liquid measure lifts the zephyr
With the drift to live forever
With the drift to live forever
Live forever
Live forever
Live forever
Live forever
.
Abreast of well met fresh beginnings
Death’s apprentice prepped for living
.
In grace
Reclined
Of sweetest seed be sown
To frame unceasing skies and lead thee
Home
.
