the touchables lyrics – human league

speaking of which, what is your choice
your conversation will suffice
i feel the need that’s known to all
better use it up before the levels fall

you can take me back to the primal drive
you can carry on until we arrive
hypnotized inside

now, i’m not young and you’re not old
i’d rather purchase than be sold
crazed friends so bold

it’s not easy to conceal
when you’re so touchable
people will hide indifference
just to be touchable

they still emit split second screams
when they are touchable
under the surface just for kicks
sincerely touchable

you say, it’s okay but what do i feel
guilt, comp*ssion or achilles heel
little feet march down grey matter hill
then panic occurs, no seeds to spill

what’s the matter now? please look up and speak
your spirit’s wilting and your flesh is weak
eight days a week

i can’t imagine what’ll happen now
i wonder when and i wonder how
the end will come

it’s not easy to conceal
when you’re so touchable
people will hide indifference
just to be touchable

it’s not easy to conceal
when you’re so touchable
people will hide indifference
just to be touchable

they still emit split second screams
when they are touchable
under the surface just for kicks
sincerely touchable

the final answer to all our fears
abrupt conclusion to all our years
still touchable but no one hears
they carry on hypnotized inside
