Gary Numan – The Image Is lyrics

I intrude on patience
I intrude on young hearts
I intrude on all such things
That can take you by surprise
Time and time again

I've no welcome for you
I've no welcome for talk
I've no welcome in my house
I've tried too long you know
Time and time again

Oh look theres a man inside
The heads not the museum its supposed to be
We sleep with machines that breathe
And some even have names the executive dream

Were all so sincere
Ill sing a song from the film that broke your heart
Oh look at the smile that cracks
Tomorrow well be civilized
And buy the whole world clothes

We don't believe in you
Were specialized mechanics in repairing the bitch
You bounce around my head
You say its a little but I'm sure its ok
