Marillion - Incommunicado
I'd be really pleased to meet you
if only I could remember your name
But I got problems with my memory
ever since I got a winner in the fame game.
I'm a citizen of Legoland travellin' incommunicado
And I don't give a damn for the Fleet Street afficionados.
But I don't want to be
The backpage interview
I don't want launderette anonymity.
I want my handprints in the
Concrete on Sunset Boulevard
A dummy in Tussauds
I'm a marquee veteran
A multi-media bonafide celebrity
I've got an allergy to Perrier
Daylight and responsebility.
I'm a rootin'-tootin' cowboy
A Peter Pan with street credibility
Always taking the point with
The dawn patrol fraternity.
Sometimes it seems like I've been here before
When I hear opportunity kicking in my door.
Call it synchronicity
Call it 'deja vu'
I just put my faith in destiny
It's the way that I choose
But I dont want to be a tin can tied
To the bumper of a wedding limousine.
Or currently residing in the where-are-they-now-file
A toupee on the cabaret scene.
I wanna do adverts for American Express cards
Talk shows on prime time TV
A villa in France
And my own cocktail bar
And that's where you're gonna find me.
Sometimes it seems like I've been here before . . .
Incommunicado is the only way.
