Gary Numan Rip It Up Lyrics

Last updated:

The new law is moving in
Now you see them now you don't
Like a Shadow in my diguise
Like a soft machine on ice
Who are you?
'I'm the man
I am the cure and disease'
Who am I?
I'm the need
I am the weakness that feeds

I've got to rip it up
I've got to tear it down
I've got to break the word
I've got to fight for you

Who am I to criticise
I'm unsafe at any speed
'We can change the world' she said
Never changed it never tried
I'm cold and hard
But I don't mind
I've been everything I can be
I've been sick
And I've got he screams
These boys don't know when to push

Did you know that I don't run
Did you know that I don't hide
Did you know that I don't sleep
Did you know that I don't care

I am the soft machine
I am the word and the law
I am the new machine
I am your feelings and more
Come inside and Play with me
I'll show you things to forget
No-one talks
And no-one leaves
No-one remembers the way

I've got to fight the man
I've got to fight the need
I've got to fight the law
I've got to fight the word
