About Warriors

"Warriors" is a song written and recorded by English musician Gary Numan, released in 1983 as a 7" and 12" single from his fifth solo studio album, Warriors. Numan promoted the song on many popular television shows such as The Saturday Show and Crackerjack. It peaked at No. 20 on the UK Singles Chart, and was Numan's final Top 20 hit to date (not counting two reissues of his 1979 hit "Cars" released in 1987 and 1996). Of the song Numan commented: "Warriors was about how I felt being a pop star more or less, I felt I was losing it and slipping down the ladder of success. The line “The ghost of the white faced clown” was a direct reference back to the old images that I’d had before and I wanted to establish that was all done and gone, I was over my Star Wars, Buck Rogers type period". The music video for the song shown on Top of the Pops shows Numan's love of flying and his new Mad Max-style image. He commented: "I had a lot of fun making the video for the single, sort of a mix between joy and terror. I think 'Warriors' is probably by far my favourite song on the album".

I fall down
No control somehow
No help now
My favor slides

No one comes here
And now I'm feeding strangers
Thin air, like cold death, like cold death
Like cold death, here in my heart

I fell for so long for you all
I fell for so long for you
I fell for so long for you

Come in, I'm the ghost
Of the white faced clown
She's gone, gone
I won't look back, she's gone

I'm old, so old
This infection of time, my skin, age
Shows no kindness, no kindness
No kindness to me

I fell for so long for you all
I fell for so long for you
I fell for so long for you
