All Lines

Now he's drifting forever in space.
Now he's looking at the situations vacant
Now he's never going to stop
Now he wears a swastika band
Now her mother pines her heart away,
Now his life is rearranged and he's grateful for the change
Now his thugs and bullies make us live in sin.
Now I'm a cut price person in a low budget land.
Now I'm all shook up and all confused.
Now I'm asking questions, I never thought I'd ask them before,
Now I'm calling all citizens from all over the world (2) (3)
Now I'm content and my life is complete.
Now I'm facing Hell Fire.
Now I'm grown up and playing in a band,
Now I'm here seemingly free, but working at the factory.
Now I'm in control of the country as a whole,
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me. (2)
Now I'm on my way (2) (3)
Now I'm out in inner space (2) (3)
Now I'm paying for a car that I no longer own
Now I'm sitting at home, staring at the wall.
Now I'm sitting here,
Now I'm standing in a doorway with my overcoat on,
Now I'm standing in a doorway with water in my shoes,
Now I'm standing in a doorway, thinking of Summers gone by.
Now I'm stuck here in their system
Now I'm stuck here, sitting on my sofa, (2)
Now I'm surviving to be a better man
Now I'm surviving, that's all I am
Now I'm willing to accept this fate
Now I've come back to see Sweet Lady Genevieve,
Now I've got a house and I've got friends of my own
Now I've got blood shot eyes
Now I've got children and I'm going grey
Now I've got holes in my shoes
Now I've got positive emotions
Now I am free and the world's at my feet.
Now I am not intending,
Now I bet that you're losin' count
Now I call your office on the telephone
Now I don't care.
Now I got rheumatic pains,
Now I look back, it seems such a crime,
Now I see change,
Now I see you've got a little girl of your own.
Now I think of what my mamma told me
Now I want you to be natural, just relax and be as you are,
Now I wish I'd never seen your face.
Now I wish I hadn't strayed,
Now I wish I never tried
Now it's a product invasion
Now it's all gotta change.
Now it's all over, it's all over, all over
Now it's all up to welfare, (2)
Now it's American Major League in Japan (2)
Now it's baby boomers in Hong Kong
Now it's cowboys in Vietnam (2)
Now it's farewell to the past
Now it's Hampstead not East End
Now it's sign the contract. Get production on the way
Now it's such a lonesome climb
Now it's sweatshops in Hong Kong
Now it's time for confrontation
Now it's your chance to do the same for me
Now it all seems clear
Now it seems so far away.
Now Jack's a success he's got nothing to prove,
Now Labour's in, I have no place to go
Now little mama's satisfied
Now mighty corporations and politicians rule the land
Now miseries and groaners moan and reminisce about the good old times and whine, whine, whine.
Now my agent just called me and said it me:
Now my day has finally come
Now my life is all scattered
Now my name's dirt and I'm disgraced.
Now my record's number 11 on the BBC
Now my record's up to number 3
Now Papa looks out of the window
Now people are talking instead of walking away
Now Road Hog's getting drunk again
Now Romeo's patience is wearing thin
Now she's fighting back the tears, she can't even laugh alone.
Now she's gone, (2)
Now she's got somebody else and I can't sleep.
Now she's impaled in Holloway jail.
Now she's in jail, and it's giving me hell. (2)
Now she looks like skin and bone.
Now she looks so old and pale,
Now she tries to tell the truth, and I just can't believe
Now Sleazy Town is just a dream
Now some of us are barmy and battered
Now something's gone and held up the crowd
Now that I'm here I can't understand
Now that it's all over you can keep the property.
Now that it's all over, now that you and I are free,
Now that you've found your paradise
Now the anger's disappeared
Now the battle's nearly won.
Now the Chelsea Drug Store needs a fix,
Now the crops are all scattered
Now the Devil has a player and he's called the Demon Bowler,
Now the outcome is still unclear
Now the pilot's gone mad, he just jumped overboard
Now the Road Hog's face is turning red
Now the schools and universities are turning out a (2)
Now the sun's come out
Now the tabloids have the news
Now the telly's on the blink.
Now the walls are shaking from the tapping of feet
Now the war is over so let's forget and leave the past alone.
Now the whole world's doing it and everybody knows,
Now the Winter is crawlin' in
Now there's fighting and panic in the streets.
Now there's no more looking back,
Now there's no more looking back. (2) (3)
Now there's no turning back
Now there's nothing left except the bit of property.
Now they're coming to take me away (2)
Now they're forgotten men remembered by so few.
Now they're going home to live just like before.
Now they're the first to crumble in the sun
Now they're towed away for parking on a double yellow line,
Now they've beaten everyone.
Now they can't hold you back 'cause you're going solo
Now they just can't cope
Now they seem so far away,
Now they seem so far away. (2)
Now those naughty little girls are going to put me to shame.
Now we're going through the wall
Now we're gripped by this tragedy
Now we've got no time to waste
Now we've got you in the system
Now we (now we) have got nothing but our own time to waste.
Now we can't turn back the future's bleak,
Now we know and we sympathize
Now wriggle your backside.
Now you're driving around in hired limousines
Now you're free to live your fantasy
Now you're free to make your play
Now you're free to take your lover
Now you're lost in the crowd
Now you're right back where you started
Now you've got the knack
Now you've relocated so far away from the real world
Now you are gone, end of the season
Now you can mix in those swinging circles
Now you don't have the time to think
Now you got plenty of time
Now you think you're wiser because you're older
Now your vict'ry is complete
Nut house (2)

- O -

O let me fly you away
Observe your feelings,
Observed all the various phases from
Of a world that is escalating out of control
Of being promised this and that.
Of concrete crashing to the ground.
Of confusion (whooooh). (2) (3) (4) (5)
Of having to ask them cap in hand
Of his boring occupation, (2)
Of identical boxes
Of kings and days of old,
Of making your life misery
Of Rosemary Rose. (2)
Of Scrapheap piles.
Of the big black smoke.
Of the empty streets below
Of the fear you cannot hide
of the full distortion from the gramophone
Of the one that went before
Of the people that you used.
Of the time when they mattered to someone. (2)
Of what I was, and what I am
Of what the x-ray pictures show
Of what we're headed for.
Of your depressions and your difficulties
Oh (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) (14) (15) (16) (17) (18) (19) (20) (21) (22) (23) (24) (25) (26) (27) (28) (29) (30) (31) (32) (33) (34) (35) (36) (37) (38) (39) (40) (41) (42) (43) (44) (45) (46) (47) (48) (49) (50) (51) (52) (53) (54) (55) (56) (57) (58) (59) (60) (61) (62) (63) (64) (65) (66) (67) (68) (69) (70) (71) (72) (73) (74) (75) (76) (77) (78) (79) (80) (81) (82) (83) (84) (85) (86) (87) (88) (89) (90) (91) (92) (93) (94) (95) (96) (97) (98) (99) (100) (101) (102) (103) (104) (105) (106) (107) (108) (109) (110) (111) (112) (113) (114) (115) (116) (117) (118) (119) (120) (121) (122) (123) (124) (125) (126) (127) (128) (129) (130) (131) (132) (133) (134) (135) (136) (137) (138) (139) (140) (141) (142) (143) (144) (145) (146) (147) (148) (149) (150) (151) (152) (153) (154) (155) (156) (157) (158) (159) (160) (161) (162) (163) (164) (165) (166) (167) (168) (169) (170) (171) (172) (173) (174) (175) (176) (177)

ON the surface I'm a mild-mannered person
On the verge of a nervous breakdown I decided to fight right to the end
Once all my clothes were made by hand,
Once he sold old worn out heaps to the punters on the street,
Once I was her lover.
Once it was only in movies
Once they start, they never stop
Once trendies posed for tourist pictures in the summertime.
Once under a scarlet sky I told you never ending lies,
Once under a starry sky I led you on and told you lies
Once we (once we) had dignity and grace
Once we (once we) had so many options
Once we loved and trusted him,
Once when he was thin
One day (one day) it's gonna get better some way (some way)
One day it's gonna come, so you better accept it.
One day leading to another,
One day life's going to turn around and slap you in the face,
One day we'll be born again
One day we'll be free, we won't care, just you see
One day we'll be free, we won't care, just you wait and see
One day you'll find out when I'm gone, (2)
One day you'll wake up and you will feel (2)
One day you're gonna' self-destruct.
One fifty a day and I'll fly, fly you away
One for the office,
One hand on the controller
One hand on the re-wind
One head wants to go to a movie
One more time (2) (3)
One of our D.J.'s is missing.
One of the rock and roll survivors,
One of these days I'm gonna knock him off of his throne,
One of these days,
One on the nose, one on the chin,
One soldier glances up to see the sun
One week he's in polka-dots, the next week he is in stripes.

Or do we join their merry queue
Or do you remember those stormy Novembers
Or drifting along acting a part in a show?
Or else he's going to do you in. (2)
Or is it just a flash in the pan?
Or is it someone in a disguise
Or is this as far as we all go?
Or just a holiday romance? (2)

Or something that you saw,
Or take a long vacation to San Tropez,
Or the voodoo curse hanging over you
Or the voodoo growl
Or the voodoo howl (2)
Or the way you dress
Or the zombie walk, like an old soft shoe
Or visions of things that used to be?

Or zombie people or demons with pointy ears

Otherwise your skin's gonna to turn to leather
Our blood starts to pump as we all shout together
Our friends are leavin'.
Our friends keep knocking at the door
Our love is here to stay
Our lovers and friends will remain
Our rows and our rifts together
Our world faded once when you were mine
Out in the country,
Out of control.
Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight,
Out of work and got no money,
Out of work executives are killing themselves
Out on the street there's a war going on
Out under a technicolor ray
Outside it's like a battleground
Over my head (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11)
Over my head, yeah

Radios of the world are tuning in tonight,

Rattling the dice, money money
Reached my destination
Reaching out with hands across the sea
Reaching out, always searching, (2)
Read the paper later
Read the reporter (2) (3) (4) (5)
Read the reporter, join the queue (2)
Reading circulars.
Real life for Entertainment,
Reality, a false perception.
Really ought to be told
Rebel, rebel found a cause,
Rebel, rebel join the young conservatives.
Referee what about me?
Regardless of race or creed,
Reggae music didn't seem to satisfy his needs.
Relatives have passed her by,
Relocated so far away from the real world
Remember all those sleepless nights,
Remember walking in the rain,
Remember walking with you by my side
Remembering days gone by
Remind me of that night in Berkeley Mews.
Rent collectors
Replaced your nose, heart and lungs,
Reporters came around and asked for interviews.
Rest my seat, rest my eyes,
Return to Waterloo. (2) (3)
Revolution used to be cool,
Rewrite the book on a fresh page (2)
Rich men, poor men make history,
Ride off with your debts into the sunset
Riding along the highway,
Riding down the motorway, (2)
Riding down the motorway, cats eyes, cold meat pies
Right back to reality.
Right now I want some peace of mind (2)
Right over the edge
Right-wing fascists beat up the blacks,
Ring out, I feel fine (2) (3)
Rivers of blood, drift away
Roast beef on Sundays, all right.
Robbery, violence, insanity.)
Robert owes half to Grenville
Rock 'n' roll or vocal star,
Rock and Roll songs from the nineteen-fifties
Rock the foundations,
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock 'n' roll.
Rolls me over just like that
Romeo he can't get no head at all
Rosemary Rose, (2) (3)
Rosy won't you please come home? (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Rosy, Rosy, got any answers?
Rosy, Rosy, will you write and tell me,
Round and round till we reach the end.
Rub my name into the ground
Rubbing my hands in anticipation.
Rudolph Valentino, looks very much alive,
Ruled by bureaucracy
Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks,
Run run run away (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7)
Run run run run run run run away (2) (3) (4)
Running through the wall of fire
Running wild in the big country

Sacrificed all, now there's nothing to show,
Sad memories I cannot recall, (2)
Sailing off in the setting sun
Same chimney pots, same little cars, same window panes
Same eyes he gave me to see with
Same for the whole human race (2)
Same lungs that he gave me to breath with
Same old faces joining the queue.
Sara Jane's working on her way to a degree,
Sat by the fireside a-pondering on.
Satan keeps knocking at my door
Save me (2)
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
Say I'm a failure and I've got nothing,
Say it again
Say what I want and swear if I like
Say what they may, all of my friends were there.
Say what they may, all of their friends need not stay.
Say your name. Speak!
Saying don't look down
Scattered here while you travel time
Schizophrenia disease.
Schizophrenia, schizophrenia, (2)
School boys dream of Captain Scarlet, battle ships and aeroplanes.
Schooldays were such happy days
Schooldays were the happiest days (2) (3) (4)
Schooldays were the happiest days of your life (2)
Schooldays were the happiest days,
Science and biology, education,
Scrapheap City.
Search the sea (2)
Searching everywhere.
Searching for acceptance in this big, wide world.
Searching here, searching there,
Second time that I saw her
Seconds into minutes and minutes
Secret fears,
Secure in your offices of self-gratification
See a poor sucker
See all the people
See how they stand in line
See Johnny Thunder sitting on his motorbike
See my friends, (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8)
See that fella, looking all spick and span,
See that girl walkin' down the street
See that morning break, oh Lord, here comes yet another day,
See that warning in that stormy sky.
See the clock, it's gettin' late now
See the early morning risers walking round with bleary eyes.
See the father, now the sons.
See the fear and silent cries - phobia
See the holocaust risin' over the horizon,
See the reporter (2) (3)
See the reporter break the news (2)
See the sunlight over the motorway,
See the whites of their eyes (2)
See you all some day (2)
See, don't ever set me free (2)
Seeking refuge from the storm, and I'm a grateful guest
Seem to come from my street
Seem to have minds of their own,
Seems an eternity away
Seems just like any other.
Seems like I'm falling upwards
Seems so passé.
Seems to me she's in a fantasy.
Seems to sing sweet melodies.
Self-destroyer, wreck your health
Selling old apples and pears
Sent her through college, didn't care what we spent.
Set me free, (2) (3)
Set me free, little girl. (2)
Set me free. (2) (3) (4)
Set your sights a little higher,
Seven miles below ma I can see the world and it ain't so big at all
Seven stories high looking at the world go by,
Seven stories high, looking at the world go by-y.
Sex violence murder and rape (Entertainment Entertainment)
Sex violence murder and rape. (Entertainment Entertainment)
Sex was bad and obscene
Shall give the profits to the people.
Shangri-la, Shangri-la la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Shangri-la, Shangri-la, Shangri-la (2) (3)
Shangri-la, Shangri-la, Shangri-la, Shangri-la, Shangri-la, Shangri-la (2)
She'll do something wrong and prove to you she is right.
She'll give you all her body
She'll leave him in the gutter,
She'll let you see most
She'll spend hours on the bus but she'll reach town
She'll turn up her nose and say what a fool you are. (2)
She's a missing person, I wish I could see
She's a star in her head and the world's at her feet
She's a symbol of all that I believe in
She's a work of art and I should know
She's bought a hat like Princess Marina's (2)
She's gonna lead him to the brink
She's gonna turn him on to drink
She's got a crazy way of kissing while we're talking
