I'd be really pleased to meet you if I could remember your name 
But I got problems of the 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 aficionados 

But I don't want to be the back-page interview 
I don't want launderette anonymity 
I want my hand prints in the concrete on Sunset Boulevard 
A dummy in Tussaud's you'll see 

Incommunicado, incommunicado 

I'm a Marquee veteran, a multimedia bona fide celebrity 
I've got an allergy to Perrier, daylight and responsibility 
I'm a rootin'-tootin' cowboy, the Peter Pan, the 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 don't 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 want to do adverts for American Express cards 
Talk shows on prime time TV 
A villa in France, my own cocktail bar 
And that's where you're gonna find me 

Incommunicado, incommunicado 

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 

Incommunicado, incommunicado 
It's the only way

Marillion

Marillion are a British rock band, formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, in 1979. Their recorded studio output since 1982 is composed of seventeen albums generally regarded in two distinct eras, delineated by the departure of original frontman Fish in late 1988, and the subsequent arrival of replacement Steve Hogarth in early 1989. All four albums released with Fish were commercial successes, and the band released eleven Top 40 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including 1985's "Kayleigh", which reached No. 2 and became their biggest hit single. more »
