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 »

A judge a dentist or physician

In this low society
Trade ambition for position
In this low society

Have you heard it's in the stars
Next July we collide with mars
Have you heard it in the bars
In this low society

No more pay and lots of leisure
In this low society
Low society

I'm just doing what I can
In this low society
But I'm an incidental man
In this low society

I give away what others sell
The secret's yours so never tell
'cause if you do you'll go to hell
Low society

Side by side and always tired
All for one and no-one hired
All that's left is love inspired
Low society

And when the party is complete
And you're still standing on your feet
The taste of victory is sweet
Low society

And darling don't forget
In this low society
To turn off your t.v. set
In this low society

The most important thing at all
In this low society
Is not to stand too tall
In this low society

In this world that never learns
I can see rome as it burns
All the passion and the power
Turns to ash within an hour
No more play and no more pleasure
In this low society
