Gary Numan Poison Lyrics

Last updated:

Help me
I'm in disgrace
Witness slow death
All over my face


Help me
Pick up my heart
Tell my friends
Wherever they are


Listen
They stole my dream
New corruption
Know what I mean?


Listen
Do you think I don't know?
I've got a face like metal
And a radio


Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison


Stand up
Stand up and fight
Stand up I won't quit so
Stand up and play


Stand up
Stand up and scream
Stand up I won't run so
Stand up and lose


Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption


Memories?
I don't need
A dead museum
And a grudge to feed


Memories
Rewrite shame
Rearrange the feelings
To ease your pain


Big lie
So this is the word
A needle in the back
And my voice unheard


Big lie
So this is the news
Radio lost
And I've nothing to lose


Nu voice
Said this is insane
I'm trying to learn the rhythm
Of the rule change game


Nu voice
I'm a clock with no hands
Someone said forgive them
I don't know if I can


Tell me
What did I do?
You'd think I'd sold perversion
To the son of God (Who?)


Tell me
What did I say?
I don't believe that honesty
Pays


Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison


Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption
