Ένα τραγούδι από το πρώτο σόλο άλμπουμ του singer/songwriter, πρωτοπόρου της synth pop και εικαστικού καλλιτέχνη, John Foxx. Το Metamatic κυκλοφορεί το 1980, μετά την αποχώρησή του από τους Ultravox – τη θέση του θα έπαιρνε ο Midge Ure.

A song from the first solo album by singer/songwiter, pioneer of synth pop and visual artist, John Foxx. Metamatic was released in 1980, after his departure from Ultravox – he would be replaced by Midge Ure.

❝ He stepped out of the film again
Brushed off the dust and walked away
The touch of a hand was fading from him
A different scene began
A voice-over through scenes of sunrise
“It feels like someone’s using my eyes”
Tinsel wind and curtains blowing
He looked down at his hands
He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind, a new kind of man
He feels the rain upon his face
He’s young again, nineteen again
Blue hills on a distant skyline
Someone took his hand
An underwater kind of silence
Humming of electric pylons
“Don’t forget me” fades in static
Another scene began
Transparent faces from the old school
No-one to project them onto
He drives by 1958
And someone says his name
He waved out of the film again
He turned and he flickered and he walked away
He felt a distant kind of longing
Another scene began



Stay Safe!
