We Are So Fragile
Tubeway
Army

 

We are so fragile
Advertising lies
That are whiter than yours
We are so fragile
They could give us a war
Just to keep us amused

We are so fragile
I could stay here inside
And say 'It's all been done'
We are so fragile
Just pretend I never tried
I'll leave up to you

We are still so young
And it must be wrong
Byt I'll do it all the same
We are really so shy
There's nothing I can do
Except believe in you

We could always go home
But everyone says
This is the place to be
We are so unnatural
But you wouldn't understand
You only deal with men
