Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are a British New Wave group formed in 1978, whose founding members, Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, England.

88 Seconds
Is all it takes
88 Seconds
Don't make mistakes
We've seen you
We can see you
In red and blue
In black and white
Under crystal skies
In full day light
You know it
God you know it
88 seconds
Is all it takes
In 88 seconds
We don't make mistakes
We know you 
Oh, yes we have known you
Times are changing
But not in our street
Once we played there
Like the good times
You know it
God, you know it
They're heading for 
A shallow grave
With a big black cross
By a tall white house
To a place down south
We won't forget
To be stabbed in the back
By a man they met
In 88 seconds
In Greensboro
In 88 seconds
In Greensboro
88 seconds
In Greensboro
Is all we take
