I Dream Of Wires
Gary
Numan

 

I am the final silence
The last elecrician alive
And they called me 'the sparkle'
I was the best I worked them all

New ways, new ways
I dream of wires

We opened doors by thinking
We went to sleep by dialling 'O'
We drove to work by proxy
I plugged my wife in, just for show

New ways, new ways
I dream of wires

So I press 'C' for Comfort
I dream of wires, the old days

New ways, new ways
I dream of wires
