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. The band rose to fame with their fourth single "Enola Gay", which became a major hit throughout Europe in 1980, and achieved worldwide popularity the following year with their third album Architecture & Morality. Regarded as the band's seminal work, it spawned three international hit singles and propelled them to superstar status in their home country.

Crossing every ocean
For the sake of locomotion
Crossing every ocean
For the sake of locomotion

Across every ocean
For the sake of locomotion
But I wouldn't have a notion
How to save my soul
I walk down the sidewalk
Run down the boardwalk
Stop and make small talk
But I can't say no to you

I can't say no, I can't say yes
I can't' even write down my own address
I can't touch heaven it's a little too far
It's the only way to travel
Got dreaming on a parr
I'm staring through the window
Wonder where you are
Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

Across every nation
From the harbour to the station
It's a form of inspiration
It's a power to the state
They run down the railways
Sail across the seaways
Fly through the airways
But they can't say no
To you

I can't stand up, I can't stand still
I know you wouldn't like it if I told you how I feel
I just want to say that it's only common sense
But the words always fail me at my own expense
I'm staring out the window
Wonder where you are
Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour

Across every ocean (across every ocean)
For the sake of locomotion (for the sake of locomotion)
But I wouldn't have a notion (but I wouldn't have a notion)
How to save my soul (how to save my soul)
Across every ocean (across every ocean)
For the sake of locomotion (for the sake of locomotion)
But I wouldn't have a notion (but I wouldn't have a notion)
How to save my soul (how to save my soul)
I walk down the sidewalk (I walk down the sidewalk)
Run down the boardwalk (run down the boardwalk)
Stop and make small talk (stop and make small talk)
But I can't say no to you 

(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
(I'm crossing every ocean)
(For the sake of locomotion)
