Lyrics: 

Oh, can you feel it in the way
That a man is not a man?
Can you see it in the sky
That the landscape is too high?

Like a nervous disease
And it's been there all along
It will tumble from the sky
And it's been there all along

Project cancelled
Tumbling central
Red Money

Chorus

Can you hear it fall
Can you hear it well
Can you hear it at all

I was really feeling good
Reet Petite and how d'ya do
Then I got the small red box
And I didn't know what to do
'Cause my fingers could not grope
And I could not give it away
And I knew I must not drop it
Stop it, take it away

Project cancelled
Tumbling central
Red Money

Chorus

Can you hear it at all
Can you hear it at all

Red Money (4x)

Such responsibility
It's up to you and me

Lyrics: 

Johnny is a man
And he's bigger than you
But his overheads are high
And he looks straight through you when you ask him how the kids are

He'll get home around seven
'Cause the Chevy's real old
And he could have had a Cadillac
If the school had taught him right
And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse

And the food is on the table
But the food is cold
Don't hit her

"Can't you even cook?
What's the good of me working when you can't damn cook?"

Well Johnny is a man
And he's bigger than her
I guess the bruises won't show
If she wears long sleeves
But the space in her eyes shows through

And he could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse
He could have married Anne with the blue silk blouse
Shows through
Shows through
Shows through

Lyrics: 

Heaven loves ya
The clouds part for ya
Nothing stands in your way
When you're a boy

Clothes always fit ya
Life is a pop of the cherry
When you're a boy

When you're a boy
You can wear a uniform
When you're a boy
Other boys check you out
You get a girl
These are your favourite things
When you're a boy

Boys
Boys
Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out

Uncage the colours
Unfurl the flag
Luck just kissed you hello
When you're a boy

They'll never clone ya
You're always first on the line
When you're a boy

When you're a boy
You can buy a home of your own
When you're a boy
Learn to drive and everything
You'll get your share
When you're a boy

Boys
Boys
Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out

Look Back in Anger (Bowie/Eno)

Lyrics: 

"You know who I am," he said.
The speaker was an angel
He coughed and shook his crumpled wings,
Closed his eyes and moved his lips
"It's time we should be going."

(Waiting so long, I've been waiting so, waiting so)

"Look back in anger,
Driven by the night,
Till you come."

(Waiting so long, I've been waiting so, waiting so)

"Look back in anger
See it in my eyes
Till you come."

No one seemed to hear him
So he leafed through a magazine
And, yawning, rubbed the sleep away
Very sane he seemed to me

(Waiting so long, I've been waiting so, waiting so)

"Look back in anger
Driven by the night,
Till you come."

(Waiting so long, I've been waiting so, waiting so)

"Look back in anger,
feel it in my voice,
till you come."
