Be Bop Deluxe - Axe Victim lyrics

You came to watch the band
To see us play our parts
We hoped you'd lend an ear,
You hoped we'd dress like tarts
But back stage we stand naked
All the make-up cleaned away,
My poet sheds his pretty skin
And turns to face the day

And there's nothing to be done,
No nothing to be said,
Last night I felt immortal,
This morning I feel dead

And the love
That gave its blaze to my heart,
Now brings a haze
Be careful 'cause I'm an axe victim,
Hung up on these silver strings,
Like wings,
Like time machines...
Like voices on the winds

We hit the road to home,
Sad amps and smashed guitars,
Played badly at 'The Duke' to almost
no applause...
But someone made it worthwhile
When smiling with bright eyes,
They gave me full attention
And took me by surprise...

Today the feeling's gone.
It faded like a ghost,
Last night I saw the future,
This morning there's no hope

And the words that I sung so clear
Are now clouded by my tears
Please be careful
'Cause I'm an axe victim,
Hung up on these silver strings,
Like sails,
Like seagull's cries
Like churchbells in the night
