"New Religion" as written by Roger Andrew Taylor, John Taylor, Andy Taylor, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes....
I've been now sauntering out and down a path sometime
Come on, it takes me nowhere which I knew
Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs and things
Telling me not there man, it's no go (don't go there boy)

I need a reason (I can't think without one now)
Too much learning got to show
Call it treason (maybe catch her don't know how)
Too many things too much to know

Bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
Lady screaming, lady leave me out
'Cause sometimes people stare (coming down, electric chair)
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

Don't know why this evil bothers me (take another chance boy carry the fight you can take him if you're fast)
So why is he trying to follow me? (didn't I say if you're holdin' on you'd be laughing at the last)
How many reasons do they need? (I get along fine with them friends of mine, But you have to make a choice)
I might just believe this time (you're singing out of tune, but the beats in time and it's us who make the noise)

I'm talking for free
I can't stop myself, it's a new religion
I've got something to see, I can't help myself, it's a new religion

Okay my reasoning might be clouded by the sun
But someone sees the departmental lie
You know this peacetime, jabbing fist in stabbing knife
Only get one look before you die

Don't know why this evil follows me (gotta take pay for the saints 'n' sinners in regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things)
So why does he try to bother me? (walking in formation down the lane they carry their cross make a church bell ring)
How many reasons do they need? (army majors pull a mean cool truth there lying in a swimming pool)
I might just be right this time (searching for the undeniable truth that a man is just a fool)

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself, it's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself, it's a new religion

Don't know why this evil follows me (gotta take pay for the saints 'n' sinners in regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things)
So why does he try to bother me? (walking in formation down the lane they carry their cross make a church bell ring)
How many reasons do they need? (army majors pull a mean cool truth there lying in a swimming pool)
I might just be right this time (searching for the undeniable truth that a man is just a fool)

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself, it's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself, it's a new religion

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself, it's a new religion
I've something to see, I can't help myself, it's a new religion

I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself, it's a new religion

    General CommentTa muzyka piękną jest, przenosi w inny wymiar, szkoda że trzeba z niego powrócić. Doktorzy Duran Duran proszę o więcej tej terapii dla duszy mej.

    General CommentI think it's about gang rape.

    "Bring my timing in"

    Tell him his turn.

    "Seaguls gather on the wind"

    The men raping the woman. Seaguls (vultures, pests) are the men and the "wind" is the woman.

    "Lady screaming, lady leave me out."

    The lady shouting to stop, her reluctant and nervous attacker telling her it's not his fault.

    "And steaming crowds they gather and they shout"

    Other men cheering it on. Reminds me of the movie "The Accused."
