The Fixx Saved By Zero

Maybe someday

Saved by zero

I’ll be more together

Stretched by fewer

Thoughts that leave me

Chasing after

My dreams disown me

Loaded with danger

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Holding on to

Words that teach me

I will conquer

Space around me

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

Who needs to win (saved by zero)

Saved by zero

The Fixx Cause To Be Alarmed

A little kid goes from

size one to size two

still we have same job

what is it that we do

all the change that’s going on

in that tiny mind

still we’re indecisive,

still we’re wasting time

and there’s cause, cause,

cause to be alarmed

who feeds the dove

who gives the world its charm

cause, cause, cause to be alarmed

we are pumped up fantasies

until the world’s disarmed

a little hungry face

deserved more than roots to chew

they will erupt “enough’s enough”

they’ll lay the blame on you

and these perceiving minds observe

to count the final score

no treasure chest, to reinvest

just a bunch of whores

and there is cause, cause,

cause to be alarmed

no making love

until the world’s disarmed

cause, cause, cause to be alarmed

a frigid little fantasy

until the world’s disarmed

fly bird high bird

a love bird got shot

heard the lead bird’s a dead bird

a new mind goes from birth,

to full view to old fool

still we have the same face

just what do we achieve?

all these minds that think alike

do damage to the strain

where we stand the very spot

we will not stand again

and there is cause, cause,

cause to be alarmed

who feeds the dove

who gives the world its charm

cause, cause, cause to be alarmed

we are pumped up fantasies

until the world is disarmed

fly bird high bird

go see bird and tell bird

that a love bird got shot,

heard the lead bird’s a dead bird

The Fixx Gypsy Feet

Land to land

from sea to shining sea

a dream’s a dream

no matter where you stand

heart to heart

your urge is pulling me

search we search

with your night light calling

Play hide and seek with me.

go dancing, following

go to the peak with me,

aspiring, climbing

to your sweet retreat

Scene to scene

we cast a sexual eye

and then life unites

we’re undercover

Play hide and seek with me

go dancing, following

go to the peak with me,

aspiring, lying

at your gypsy feet

The Fixx Driven Out

Driven out by thieves,

I watch them pillage the planet

Fueled by a fattening greed,

Trees fall to the hatchet

We’re chopping against the grain,

Our spirits in a vacuum

Sadly ignore the pain,

The end arrives, we all lose

We all lose, I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out

Holding out

Day by day survival

Castaways have silent lives

With the strength to rival you

See now I’m driving in my car

I used to be able to walk this far

Now I turn on the light

I used to be able to sleep at night

I’m cooking with microwaves

To warm up food that’s not seen the soil

Plugged into my TV

I’m used to the lies they’re telling me

I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out

Holding out

Day by day survival

Castaways have silent lives

With the strength to rival you

Driven out

Holding out

Driven out

Holding out

With the strength to rival you

I’m hoping that we find,

More to life than meets the eye

Can we escape the grind,

Build a life that’s more worthwhile

Rid of this empty pride,

Full of selfishness inside

Bathe in a turning tide,

Until then we all hide

We all hide

I hope it comes, it comes, it comes around

Driven out

Holding out

Day by day survival

Castaways have silent lives

With the strength to rival…

Driven out

Holding out

Could take up your best time

Driven out

Holding out

With the strength to rival you

Rival you

Rival…

Red skies at night

(Red skies at night)

Oh oh (oh oh) Wa-a-a-a-a-a-ar

The Fixx How Much Is Enough

How much is enough?

Good enough’s not good enough

Don’t complain that you’ve got it tough

With all you have your life’s a bore

Can’t relax you want so much more

Blind needs won’t set you free

Can’t you see that

Time is slipping away?

But I got to say

[CHORUS]

How much is enough when your soul is empty?

How much is enough in the land of plenty?

When you have all you want and you still feel nothing

How much is enough, is enough?

Gravity may bring you down (down) (down)

But harmony could spin you ’round (around)

Information ariel says buy, buy, buy material

Give take all day long

Can’t you see it’s

Hopeless being strong

When you’ve got live it wrong?

[CHORUS]

How much is enough?

Buy, buy, buy

Buy, buy, buy

So give me your attention

I know it’s getting late

While we were dreaming

Something slipped away

We’re drowning in possessions

Playing tricks with our minds

Lost from one another

Baby, put your hand in mine

Time is slipping away

But it’s not too late

[CHORUS]

How much is enough?

How much is enough?

When you have all you want and you still feel nothing

How much is enough, is enough?

How much is enough, oh?

When you feel nothing at all

The Fixx Can’t Finish

One morale that needs the strengthening

A timely episode of fate would you be there?

The sound of silence seems so deafening

To have to fight alone seems so unfair …don’t tell me

I can’t finish what you started

I’m too far in to be without

Can’t seem to preach without the practice (oh no)

Far too many of us would like to get something started

How many of us would like to get things started?

The rush of youth what it could achieve

May create more than cruising out to plunder

All you need is faith all you need is faith in yourself…

don’t tell me

I can’t finish what you started

I’m in too far in to be without

Can’t seem to preach without some practicing

Far too many scenes to be acted out

It’s time for us to start restructuring

Well my imagination, my imagination is my tool

Society won’t have my ears for lecturing

All I have is my faith all I have is my faith get away…

don’t tell me

I can’t finish what you started

I’m too far in to be without

Can’t seem to preach without the practice (oh no)

Far too many scenes to be acted out

I can’t finish

(I’m too far in to be without)

What you started

I can’t finish

(Too many scenes to act out)

No no telling baby

The Fixx Yesterday, Today

[VERSE 1]

Any road, any bed

Another stitch in the tapestry

Any plate, any soap

Another hope, same anatomy

To the higher ground

Any day, any job

You’re still in my memory

Another note to another song

I love what you do to me

I’ll jump the train and make that step

I’ll make the plane to fly away

Send it high, so high

We can turn around

Yesterday, (yesterday was tomorrow) today was tomorrow

Here and now (this was all that I can be) is all that I can be

We can play, (we can beg, steal or borrow) beg, steal or borrow

It’s okay, we can find a way

Any door a reason why

Another window to another sky

Another heart lies just the same

We are together just to ease the pain

I’ll jump the train and take that step

I’ll make the plane to fly away

Send it high, so high

We can turn around

Yesterday, (yesterday was tomorrow) today was tomorrow

Here and now (this was all that I can be) is all that I can be

We can play, (we can beg, steal or borrow) beg, steal or borrow

It’s okay, we will find a way

Higher ground

[VERSE 1]

I’ll jump the train and take that step

I’ll make the plane to fly away

Send it high, so high

To the higher ground

Yesterday, (yesterday was tomorrow) today was tomorrow

Here and now (this was all that I can be) is all that I can be

We can play, (we can beg, steal or borrow) beg, steal or borrow

It’s okay, we will find a way

Yesterday, (yesterday was tomorrow) today was tomorrow

(Yesterday was tomorrow)

(Yesterday was tomorrow)

(Yesterday was tomorrow) what you give to me, you’re still in my path

(Yesterday was tomorrow) yesterday

(Yesterday was tomorrow) beg, steal, want to have it all

(Yesterday was tomorrow)

The Fixx Read Between The Lines

You’re not the first to be lonely

Thank God you’re not the only

Relax with the fact you’re surrounded

Follow your bloodline

We feel warm when we think we’re protected

Cry out when we feel rejected

Maybe in some other life we’re connected

We’ve seen it all before

Please take heart, find your soul

Read between the lines

Please take heart, play your role

Read between the lines

Please believe I implore you

Spirit flight will restore you

Only love can ignore you

Another fighting heart

Please take heart, find your soul

Read between the lines

Please take heart, play your role

Read between the lines

Please take heart

Read between the lines

Please take heart

Feel warm if you think that you know me

I thank God when you show me

Happy that we’re just surviving

Please take heart, we’ll survive

Please take heart, find your soul

Read between the lines

Please take heart, play your role

Read between the lines

Please take heart

Read between the lines

Please take heart

You’re not the first to be lonely

Between the lines

Thank God you ain’t the only

Between the lines…

The Fixx Sense The Adventure

Are you locked in the paranoia

You should enjoy the sense of doubt

Break down the walls of institution

I’m going to let my paganism out

A god of light, baron of evil

Supposed to show me hallowed ground

But these our monsters we created

To civilize our primal shouts

Sense the adventure

Let the feeling out

Sense the adventure

Let your pagan out

Let him out

Sense the adventure

Not just because you have your answers

It shouldn’t mean my views are seen in vain

An earthly bid for resurrection

Could never soothe the human pain

Sense the adventure

Let the feeling out

Sense the adventure

Let the pagan out

Let him out

Sense the adventure

No war of rights to battle angels

Will ever justify these ends

So recognise yourself in others

A generation makes amends

Are you locked out in no direction

You could escape to feed the mind

To an untrodden field of vision

Sensitivity will find

Sense the adventure

Let the feelings out

Sense the adventure

Let your pagan out

Better not let him out

Sense the adventure

[repeat x5]
