Gary Numan – Poison lyrics
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
