"Today I Died Again" as written by Derek Forbes, James Kerr, Michael Joseph Macneil, Brian Mcgee and Charles Burchill....
The human drum
Beats a rhythm of life
The clothes he wears
Date back to the war
He talks a lot
Often to himself
She don't say much
Just cuts his hair
She can't remember
Before the heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Towers in sand
America can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today

Back to a year
Back to a youth
Of men in church and drug cabarets
Is this the age
Of empires and dance
Oh what a world
Oh what a world
She can't remember
Before this heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Bodies in sand
Presidents can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today

    General CommentMagnificent track with some indian sounds inbetween.
    Came across this when I found out that this was the Simple Minds songs from which the drumintro was taken by Tears For Fears to create Empire Building.

    A comment on the social situation back then, I guess.
    The singer 'dies' everyday from the things he sees around him.
    He can't stand/take it.
