"Caucasian Walk" as written by Richard Garvin Evans, Fionan Martin Hanvey, David John Kelly, Derek Mary Karl Rowen, Trevor Bernard Rowen and David Watson....
I looked at my watch and I saw I had no time.
Didn't notice all the clocks on television,
Controlled violence on sale in new streets.
Don't delay in boring studios!
Whatever happened to Emancipation Act '73?
I think it's lost, yes it's lost
In a world of satisfaction. No delay!

[Chorus]
Like a crazy singer in a band that's lost the words.
Like a crazy singer in a band that's lost the words.
Like a crazy singer in a band that's lost the words.
Like a crazy singer in a band that's lost the words.
Caucasian walk, Caucasian talk
Because I can't do nothing, can't do nothing.

Seen is only truth in a shell of lies,
Distributed feelings to a race that doesn't comprehend.
I don't smoke, I just do it for the company.
Political problems, sexual frustration won't end.
It's the type of poison that doesn't count in life.
I think not of the glasses but of the drink.

[Chorus]

Glitter stardust in dull camp void,
Hero are you out there or is it just a shadow?
I could give you words if the world gives me vibes.
Tell me what's the position between the man and beast?
Impressions on a mirror for everyone of you to look at.
It's the type of happening in a weird situation
And that's the reason for doing nothing.

[Chorus]

I looked at my watch and I saw I had no time.
Didn't notice all the clocks on television,
Controlled violence on sale in new streets.
Don't delay in boring studios!
Whatever happened to Emancipation Act '73?
I think it's lost, yes it's lost
In a world of satisfaction. No delay!

[Chorus]

I have no words, no words
Caucasian walk, Caucasian talk...

    General CommentCaucasian Walk
    “… what it is basically is quotes, quotes from people we heard talking, sayings we’ve heard… we just got sentences that we liked, that we were familiar with, and joined them together… it means nothing.” Gavin, in Alternative Megazine issue 8, February 1984.

    General CommentI think this song is about a society in which people have become part of a system that is like a big machine to which people must conform and make themselves compatible. It's about the post-humanist reign of alienation, apparatchiks, capitalism, competition, consumerism, efficiency, gleichschaltung, means dominating purpose, panem et circenses, & the abolishment of creativity, humanism, individualism, purpose, re-creative leisure-time, & self-determination. It's about a world in which everyone just walks on, without paying heed to their surroundings, with a lack of real communication or even the ability to communicate: A world in which people just rattle on like street-cars in their grooves, punctual but dull.
