Sometimes you're better off dead. There's a gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head
It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid
Moving on the floor now babe, you're a bird of paradise
A police car and a screaming siren, pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Talking away, I don't know what I'm to say
Well, Jo'anna she runs the country, She runs in Durban and the Transvaal
When I'm with you baby, I go out of my head
I want to run, I want to hide, I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
When routine bites hard and ambitions are low and resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow
That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me, I think they're ok
Well we know where we're goin', but we don't know where we've been
I get up in the evening and I ain't got nothing to say

We walked in the cold air, freezing breath on a window pane, lying and waiting
Tommy used to work on the docks
She says her love for me could never die, but that'd change if she ever found out about you and I
One man on a lonely platform, one case sitting by his side
In the beginning was the word. Man said 'Let there be more light'
Clock strikes upon the hour and the sun begins to fade
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces
Don't ask me what you know is true. Don't have to tell you I love your precious heart
Life is a moment in space; when the dream is gone, it's a lonelier place
Sometimes I feel I've got to run away, I've got to get away
You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
We move like cagey tigers, oh we couldn't get closer than this
