Gary Numan - Love And Napalm Lyrics




Call me Deadliner
Nothing in here but dust.
Are you afraid dear listener?
Nothing in here but us.

I'll give you black rumours
'Stay away from everything I've seen.'
I'll give you black rumours
'Stay away from everyone I've been.'

The broken sound of love and lies
Still fill your room.
Faded memories of shame
Will find you soon.

I'll give you corrosion
Miracles are never what they seem
I'll give you corrosion
Welcome to the nightmare, not the dream.

I can remember everything.
Every promise, every lie,
And how the words of strangers made me cry.
All the pride, all the shame,
All the friends that came from nowhere
And then hurried back again.
I collected scars like a man at war
And I thought 'Isn't life peculiar,
Desire takes you there, but not back.'
No more. I'm just another old story.

When God heard your prayer
It said 'I am not your friend.'
Laughed like a fallen angel
And said 'I've no love to send.'

It keeps a photograph
It likes to overdose on time
It said 'Time to leave'
Like other friends of mine.

I'll give you dark wonders
You are all invited to the show.
I'll give you dominions
You are all invited to the show.
I'll give you dead hereos
You are all invited to the show.
I'll give you love and napalm
You are all invited to the show.

Gary Numan Love And Napalm Comments
  1. david hefner

    Timeless

  2. Rhys Seddon

    This song got me into numan, his lyrics in this I can relate to a lot

  3. Steve Chase

    I defo think that Numan stole the riff from the abortive 1993 Ultravox/Billy Currie/Tony Fennell collaboration 'Systems of Love'. But, full credit to him for turning it into a dark brooding classic - without question it's one of his best tracks.

  4. Neil Morgan

    Class album that should get more credit.The start of what Numan is today!!

  5. Hunter Alexander Xionia

    This song feels a lot like "Machine + Soul" done right.

    Jarrod Cook

    +Hunter Alexander “Agent” Xionia Damn straight.
