 THIS WRECKAGE INFO

After an American tour Gary decided to release "This Wreckage" as a single, which turned out to be a poor choice of single, consequently it did nowhere as good as previous singles "This Wreckage" was left crawling in at No 20 in the UK charts. The song had a hopelessly catchy opening keyboard figure, while the song's lyrics quickly reveal Numan's chronic scepticism and manic- depression. (And what if God's dead/ we must have done something wrong/ this dark facade ends/ we're independent from someone."). This Wreckage was Gary's way of making a statement of goodbye; shortly he announced he was retiring from live shows hence the Wembley Arena shows on 26, 27 and 28 April. 

 THIS WRECKAGE LYRICS

This Wreakage 
('Telekon' album, 1980)

And what if God's dead
We must have done something wrong
This dark facade ends
We're independent from someone

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you, meet you
Soon

We write suggestions
Suggesting fading to silence
And that must please you
My mirrors tarnished with 'no help'

This wreckage I call me
Would like to frame your voice
This wreckage I call me
Would like to meet you meet you
Soon

(Japanese)
I leave you

Turn out these eyes
Wipe off my face
Erase me
Replay 'The end'
It's all just show
Erase you
I need to I need to I need to
