(Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark)


Dal debut album "Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark" del 1980.
Trained bodies in coordination
Is that a better way for bunker soldiers
But it's a nicer way to spend the war

On lava beaches and sandy seasides
The rusting bodies are surplus now then
We never taught them how to fight like that

The object's exercise is so compulsive
It's not a better way but it still suits us
I'd give up rice fields to fight like you

K B N U R A S T R S O L I E K B
It's not a better way

N U R N I T O L I B K B N U R E
Though we are here to stay
4 1 5 8 9 5 2 4 9 5 8 9 2 1 4 1

S T R S O L I B K B N U R A S T
Well that might seem OK
5 8 9 5 2 4 9 5 8 9 2 1 4 1 5 8

Waves of people in strange directions
It's no use talking, there's no decisions
They gave up houses to be refugees

The mud in ditches is over their knees
The sandbagged trenches are over our heads
This kind of warfare's become hide and seek

Though khaki uniforms are universal
Your propaganda is losing appeal
I'd give up rice fields to fight like you
I'd give up rice fields to fight like you
I'd give up rice fields to fight like you
I'd give up rice fields to fight like you

K B N U R A S T S O L I E K B N
It's not a better way

(*) Bunker Soldiers features a chorus that actually spells out the title 'BUNKER SOLDIERS' as random letters and the same letters translated into numbers.
