"Stormtrooper In Drag" as written by Gary Anthony James Webb and Paul Gardiner....
So here am I
Quite by chance near the phone
I could call and make you crawl into bed

Questions always questions
I'll just speak in slow motion
About obsessions with boys on the floor

Take that smile off your face
Wipe that tear from your eye
Don't say sorry for me
Take that smile off your face
Wipe that tear from your eye
Don't say sorry for me

Now look at me
Like a stormtrooper in drag
I'll bet you feel exactly like I do
It's so disgusting
I'm so tired of
Rhythm and needles in arms
I don't want your point of view

Nothing to do
Nothing to steal
And there's nothing to say
Nothing to do
Nothing to steal
And there's nothing to say

Oh, don't cry
Love it, love it
I need to

Stop it

    General CommentNo other number, by Numan or anyone, sounds anything like Stormtrooper in Drag.

    It has a really peculiar beauty all of its own, and a beautiful, retreating expression. It takes a retrospective feel but seems lonely and melancholy in tone, moreso in word.

    The lyrics are arguably impossible to hear in full. You would never learn them properly unless you see them written, as they are here.

    For instance, i always believed line 5 was 'sessions with boys of lore' and only stood corrected lastnight. Always believed this number was to do with an attraction to boys, after seeing the true lyrics, maybe it is about drug addiction.

    General CommentWell, it was released (and co-written) by Paul Gardiner, his bass player in Tubeway Army, who had, and died, from a heroin addiction. That could be the gist of the song, expecially the line "needles in arms"
