Tears for Fears

Tears for Fears are an English New Wave band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the New Wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success. more »

Do you remember a guy that's been 
In such an early song 
I've heard a rumor from Ground Control 
Oh no, don't say it's true 

They got a message from the Action Man 
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too 
I've loved all I've needed to love 
Sordid details following" 

The shrieking of nothing is killing 
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I 
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair 
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet it's glowing 

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky 
We know Major Tom's a junkie 
Strung out in heaven's high 
Hitting an all-time low 

Time and again I tell myself 
I'll stay clean tonight 
But the little green wheels are following me 
Oh no, not again 
I'm stuck with a valuable friend 
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too" 
One flash of light but no smoking pistol 

I never done good things I never done bad things 
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh 
Want an axe to break the ice 
Wanna come down right now 

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky 
We know Major Tom's a junkie 
Strung out in heaven's high 
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said to get things done 
You'd better not mess with Major Tom
