"Films" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I don't like the film
I don't like the film
Play it all back
Play it all back

And I don't like the scenery
And I don't like the set so
Pull it all down
Pull it all down

But I like the actors
And I like the show

We're so exposed
We're so exposed
Anything can happen
Anything can happen

Don't let them see
Don't let them know
And you wonder why
And you wonder why

Turn off the lights
And turn off the sound

    General CommentThis song is yet one more of a long list of referrences to film, photographs, screens, pictures.
    It's amazing Numan didn't go into film production.
    This is a really good song.

    General CommentApparently, it isn't about films, it's about life. The scenery and set are the streets, the actors are normal people. And he doesn't like what he sees.
