LYRICS: DURAN DURAN – NOTORIOUS

 

1986 NOTORIOUS
.
Notorious

No-no-Notorious. Notorious. Ah. No-no-Notorious

I can’t read about it
Burns the skin from your eyes
I’ll do fine without it
Here’s one you don’t compromise
Lies come hard in disguise
They need to fight it out
Not wild about it
Lay your seedy judgements
Who says they’re part of our lives?

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
So long as boys make a noise
Fools run rings to break up
Something they’ll never destroy
Grand Notorious slam (bam)
And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
Don’t ask me to bleed about it
I need this blood to survive

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

That’s why I’ve done it again. No. No
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious. Yeah
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious. Yeah
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious

American Science

It’s a little bit late now
But there is times you will
Get a little bit out of hand
Making all of a spill
And if we can lay this down
You’re going all the way
Take a look and I’ll check it out
Cuz I can always find it

Such a lonely Place Ooooh
This room without your face Ooooh
Ooooooh American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh it’s such poor manners
Don’t keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me

A little megalomania
Becomes you evidently
There ain’t a thing you can’t acquire
With your cling-wrap plaything
Just look at this state
I crawl around in a daze
Like symptomatic case
Of your soul persuasion

Such a lonely Place Ooooh
It moves me into place Ooooh
Ooooooh American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh it’s such poor manners
Don’t keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me

Such a lonely Place Ooooh
It moves me into place Ooooh
Ooooooh American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh it’s such poor manners
Don’t keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me

Skin Trade

Working on the weekend baby
she’s working all through the night
a jump into the deep-end gave her
the evidence she required
Takes five: she’s got pearls
don’t fake it when it comes to
making money, so… she smiles,
but that’s cruel
If you know what she thinks,
if you knew what she was after

Sometimes she wonders
and she laughs in her frustration

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

Doctors of the revolution gave us
the medicine we desired
Besides being absolutely painless
it’s a question of compromise
They got steel
It’s so cool
to get angry at the weekend
and go back to school
So big deal: it’s what rules
When it comes to making money
say yes, please, thank you…

Sometimes you wonder
and you ask yourself the question

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade
Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

I know the answer
but I’m asking you the question

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

A Matter Of Feeling

How does it feel when everyone surrounds you?
how do you deal, do crowds just make you feel lonely?
what do you say when people come and try to pin you down?

Acquaintances smile, but that’s no understanding
how, after a while you keep falling off the same mountain
try to explain it, but nothing really gets that high.

Steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

emotion’s a game, saved up for a rainy monday
but you laugh just the same, ’cause it’s been pouring on sunday
call up your numbers, and never let the zeros bring you down

how does it feel, is time too heavy to hold?
whatever you decide for the moment is holy
whenever you slow down to see life is passing by

Steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

you can…

steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

A Matter Of Feeling
A Matter Of Feeling, when it comes you steel away
A Matter Of Feeling

A Matter Of Feeling, when it comes you steel away
A Matter Of Feeling
A Matter Of Feeling, wetting tears will dry
A Matter Of Feeling

Hold Me

Shall we walk? Shall we run?
through my head
you understand
does the body you conceal
need the touch of someone’s hand?
Ashes, violations–
who would they burn for?
In your isolation… why can’t you see?

I (what can’t you see?)
wonder if the lights out
I (what can’t you see?)
wonder if they’re listening

Hold me lay your shame away
Show me where your lovers stay
Hold me lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself

You are lost and alone
but a prisoner of your pride
when the passions you ignore
you can never hide

One of these days
you’re going to find out
‘Cuz one of these days
you’re going to try
And what did I say
to make you wind up
with this spear of guilt inside

I (what can’t you see?)
wonder if the lights out
I (what can’t you see?)
wonder if they’re listening

Hold me lay your shame away
Show me where your lovers stay
Hold me lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself

Hold me Show me
Hold me lay your shame away
Show me where your lovers stay
Hold me lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself

Vertigo (Do the Demolition)

Hey guys turn it up to get sleazy
twist it in a vice
Nobody said it was easy
just use your naked eyes… oh!
How to see and how to hide it
How to save it well…
maybe, maybe, maybe
You can take it and eat it
And chew your life supply oh!

Where’s the real life in your illusion ?
On the dark side your power’s in confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
and lose the chance to hear when you don’t listen

Don’t you feel edgy? Bite your lips and bleed
Conversation is empty: abandoned in the freeze
Freedom is your condemnation
Free to say: well…
maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe!
You can take it or leave it
Just need a little hit tonight

Where’s the real life in your illusion ?
On the dark side of power in confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
don’t lose the chance to hear ’cause you don’t listen

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
you can try to believe it
just need a little help tonight!

Where’s the real life in your illusion ?
On the dark side of power in confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
and lose the chance to hear when you don’t listen

Where’s the real life in your illusion ?
On the dark side of power in confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
and lose the chance to hear when you don’t listen

Hear it when you listen
You don’t hear when you listen
Hear it when you listen
You don’t hear when you listen

So Misled

(I, I, I, I… so misled)

In the summer of London life “gold,” she said,
Was a month before I realized “sold,” instead
Hey, it’s such an awful choice, gonna break my back
Take it easy now, you’re weepin’ boy, don’t wanna feel the crack
Bust my head to say you lose it, now my body’s gotta use it

I, I, I should not be.. so misled
I, I, I should not be.. so misled

Saw an advert in a magazine “safe,” it said
With the satisfaction guaranteed, to cool your head!
I can see the solution to this state of confusion

(chorus)

(chorus)

So misled
So misled
Ok, take it away

(Do-do, do do do, dooo dooo, la-la, la la la laaa)
(Do-do, do do do, dooo dooo, la-la, la la la laaa)

In the summer of London life

(Do-do, do do do, dooo dooo)
Was a month before I realized

(la-la, la la la laaa)
I gotta say, I miss you baby
So misled

Meet El Presidente

Miss November Tuesday
Bend your rubber rules
Take your time, but don’t take
Off your high heeled shoes
She’s in demand at dinner time
She’s on the factory wall
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who’s in control?
She blew your money
On taking a cruise
If that isn’t funny
Well, watch out teacher

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber’s empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Dressed in flimsy clothing
Use your lipstick line
To colour fear and loathing
With a pink disguise
You’ve never refused when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack
She’s on the case at dinner time
She’s on the evening news
And if you dare step out of line
You’re going to be abused
You may not like it
You may not be scared
But hell has no fury like a
Young girl’s ego

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber’s empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo
You might adopt an attitude
Look on the moral side
But if police are after you
Where’s the best place to hide?
For this production
They gave her a gun
Ain’t no director–
So watch out actors!

Winter Marches On

(Oooh, ohhh, Mmmm)

The trade’s on.
She drains emotion –
To drink from,
The breast of fortune
Dreams have frozen,
Crystal in the morning
Birthtime rose,
A thorn for coronation.

All arise from your rest
We’ll find enough there to feed you.
Soon you’ll belong to the blessed
Spare us your lives while we need you.

Loud, is the music, the crowd is ringing
Out, of my head as the winter marches on…

Loud is the music the sky is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on…
Loud, is the music, the crowd is bringing
Out, of my head as the winter marches on…

Loud is the music the sky is ringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on…

And on…
Winter marches on…
 
 
 
 
Proposition

“Bring back that child” – She said
“Spare me the price of freedom
Cold is my baby’s head
blown by the wind of reason”
Even the rage behind
cries out to see
We’re still standing
under the closing edge
Pay for the crime of feeling

When all your pride is dead
you must be scared instead…

A quiet word is my Proposition
A promise made of a fierce day
A body bleeds for this coalition
without surrender if you stay

“Show me my youth” she cried
“Wasted for desolation
Hold up the sacrifice,
pull down your institutions
resting while anger flies
question’s the same…
Who’s deciding after the clouds have lain
Shame on your generation

When all your guilt lies dead
you must be scared instead

A quiet word is my Proposition
A promise made on a fierce day
The body bleeds for this coalition
without surrender if you stay

when all your pain lies dead
you must be scared instead

A quiet word is my Proposition
a promise made on a fierce day
The body bleeds for this coalition
without surrender if you stay
A quiet word is my Proposition
a promise made on a fierce day
The body bleeds for this coalition
without surrender if you stay

Proposition… Proposition
