"I Dream Of Wires" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I am the final silence
The last electrician alive
And they called me the sparkle
I was the best, I worked them all

New ways, new ways
I dream of wires

We opened doors by thinking
We went to sleep by dialing 'o'
We drove to work by proxy
I plugged my wife in, just for show

New ways, new ways
I dream of wires

So I press 'c' for comfort
I dream of wires, the old days

    General CommentAnother sci-fi song from Numan. Futuristic tale about the last electrician on earth reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Features a wicked synth solo.

    "We drove to work by proxy
    I plugged my wife in, just for show" is my favorite line in the song.

    General CommentNuman was something of a futurist in his thinking to be sure.

    Yet one more powerful song with riviting images contained in the lyrics, backed with enchanting synthesizer.
