 I DIE: YOU DIE INFO

Bizarrely with Numan's continued success came many enemies in the media. This non-stop abuse led Gary to aim his next single I Die You Die at the press. The lyrics were powerful and straight to the point, and the single became another Top 10 hit No 8 in the UK charts. An alternate take was featured on just six white label copies; meanwhile in Holland there were many different coloured vinyl releases of the single. The cover shows Gary wearing a black leather jumpsuit with red horizontal and vertical lines and a red streak in his hair and lets not forget the hoover attachment. 

 I DIE: YOU DIE LYRICS

I Die : You Die 
(Single, 1980)

This is not love
This is not even worth a point of view
In Echo Park I
Pause for effect
And whisper 'Who are you?'

They crawl out of their holes for me
And I die : You die
Hear them laugh
And watch them turn on me
And I die : You die
See my scars
They call me such things
Tear me, tear me, tear me

But I have your names
Screaming 'You will suffer'
And, 'You're all too late'
Now I feel young
Does everything stop when the old tape fails?

They crawl out of their holes for me
And I die : You die
Hear them laugh
And watch them turn on me
And I die : You die
See my scars
They call me such things
Tear me, tear me, tear me

But I'm still frightened by the telephone... 


Sleep By Windows
('Telekon' album, 1980)

You can cry by my window
You can crawl on the floor
You can scream if you want to
But I won't unlock the door

You can sleep in bus shelters
You can sleep in the park
But I'll rip up the trees
Until you tear yorself apart

But I don't love you
No I don't love you
Do you dream?

Back to surveillance
Open eyes and wash out 'tear'
A sign that says 'no exit'
And 'no-one can save you here'

I could talk about my programme
Where everything is white
I could specialise in pictures
Where nothing's ever right

But I don't love you
No I don't love you
Do you dream?

We are just sound
We are just noise
And we are all here to lie
Do you dream?

You sleep by windows
You sleep by windows

Do you cry?
Do you dream?
Do you?
Did you?
