Heaven 17

Heaven 17 are an English New Wave synthpop band originating from Sheffield in the early 1980s. Originally a trio, the band comprised Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously with The Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform since then, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17 since then. more »

Another square day
And another square week
And another square year
And another square lifetime

If you turn me on like you turn it on
Big square people
If you look at me the way you watch tv
Big square people
You're digging it round when it should be square
Big square people
When the screen is blank there's no-one there
Big square people

I've seen you watching it day and night
You don't miss the big game or big fight
All those dimensions all those race (? )
Come in action (? )
The world's full of greed and envy and lust
If they don't get you the (? ) must
Turn on at daybreak before you're awake
I turn it off now

Big square people

Turn of the brightness, the colour and sound
The big square people in sensorround
Before too long the damage is done
To big square people television is such fun
They come in action from every direction
With every booster and (? )
They're sending signals from satellite sky
Soon you're on tv and you don't know why
Hey, come on down, you're looking good
If they said 'jump' I really think that you would
'cause tv is God and heaven's hollywood

You're digging it round when it should be square
Big square people
When the screen is blank there's no-one there
Big square people

Get up from the chair you look like a slug (? )
Take the tip from the tv go and find a job
But there are no jobs, there is no pay
'but that's not what the people on the tv say'
They say to me 'I'll be what you wanna be,
Let's join the army maybe see the sea'

Turn of the brightness, the colour and sound
Turn of the (? ) let's going around
Turn on at daybreak before you're awake
Let's turn it off now before it's too late
(turn it off !)
