Lyrics

Crying parents tell their children
If you survive don't do as we did
A son exclaims there'll be nothing to do to
Her daughter says she'll be dead with you

Partied with Cy in Dublin in the 80s. wild party. When he found out I was not with the roadies he told me I was an a-hole and kicked me out. We laughed and I shot him a bird. Great guy though really cool.

a single pair of notes takes me back 30 years...
Errors in the chorus? Really? You're stupid.

Numerous errors in the chorus.

these guys had no real bands that sounded like them...so unique..clas s i c MTV video too...such a great sound with lyrics that meant something..
Why did I not realize I loved the Fixx back in the 80's?
According to the people who kept track we got to 11:58 PM.
Huh! Cold War.... Growing up in the eighties and not knowing when we were going to nuke or be nuked. How scary this song really is now knowing how close we really came to exstinction
Great traveling song...under r a t e d band.

Still rings true.
Yeah the Fixx rules.
Has that great 80's, World War III vibe that made music seem so much more important than what it really was.
They played this on my Led Zeppelin station but I ain't mad. Saw the Fixx in 83 and they've always had a great sound.

Oh yes, classic Fixx! Hope I'm not the first AND last to comment on this one--it's a great tune!
