"Play It Safe" as written by and David/pop Bowie....
Say Ta
Eisenhower saw the thing
He said this is sickening
I swear I saw the very thing
I saw it in America

Let's play safe
I never knew how
How to play safe
You told me how
how to play safe
A thousand times

I don't believe in fairies any more

Today I saw a very very thing
But that's another song
You're too simple minded
Let's play it safe

What do we have in common?
Play it safe
What do we have in common?
Play it safe

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe

    General CommentHeh... I really highly doubt it's about anything at all.
    Great song, though. And I love the cameos from David Bowie and The Simple Minds (especially with the line...)

    General CommentFor me 'playing safe' is being a conformist to the society and acting as you're told, not as you want to act :P And yeah, lets be honest, people have it in common :P
