A New Kind Of Man
LYRICS...
He stepped out of the film again
Brushed off the dust and walked away
The touch of a hand was fading from him
A different scene began:

A voice-over through scenes of sunrise
"It feels like someone's using my eyes"
Tinsel wind and curtains blowing
He looked down at his hands...

He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind, a new kind of man

He feels the rain upon his face
He's young again, nineteen again
Blue hills on a distant skyline
Someone took his hand...

An underwater kind of silence -
Humming of electric pylons -
"Don't forget me" fades in static -
Another scene began...

He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind, a new kind of man

Transparent faces from the old school
No-one to project them onto
He drives by 1958
And someone says his name...

He waved out of the film again
He turned and he flickered and he walked away
He felt a distant kind of longing
Another scene began...

He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind of man
He was a new kind, a new kind of man
