The Key ( 1984 )
We're in a dark room,
the shadow say he's comin' back soon
and tho' he caught us in the full moon,
how come we never saw his face ?
we're on the inside,
we've learned a lot of how the man lied
but we lose our game of i-spy
if we never leave this place
why does it happen so soon when we all wish the world well
may we be allowed to go free ?
why do we spend all our time bein' curious
why when we all know and still hide the key ?
we specialise in
Facts we know you'll find surprisin'
names and faces we're disguised in
but suddenly we are the clowns
stop cryin' on my shoulder,
you won't escape the shadow told you
but your life is gettin' colder
and you know you hear the sounds
why does it happen....
Where have all our dreams gone
and reasons why we hold on ?
they run before a new dawn
from a darker day they flee
beyond the door i hear a voice call
hold me as utopia falls
pressin' back against the cold wall
we hear the turning of the key
