"White Car" as written by Lisa Campbell, John Boyd, Neil White, Walter Poultney and Matthew Fink....
I see a man in a white car
Move like a ghost on the skyline
Take all your dreams
And you throw them away
Man in a white car.

    General CommentHavent heard to this song. Just enter to check out the lyrics due was a paroy of Gary Numan.
    I do like the band though Gary is quite a influencer for many current bands on this days.

    General CommentI've also heard that this is a sardonic song about Gary Numan who used to drive around London in a white Corvette at the time (1980).

    General CommentI see the man in the white car as a drug dealer, a heroin or meth dealer. He'll take all your dreams and he'll wipe them away.

    General CommentOn the 'Drama' tour Geff turned this short forgettable song into an epic 20 min suite!

    Personally i don't think the 'white car' is meant to represent anything its just meant to be an ambiguous symbol of mystery.

    General CommentThe lyric is clearly "And you drive them away." Not "Throigh them away."

    Why is this mondegreen perpetuated? Trevor Horn is English, not an outback Australian.
