"Flight 19" as written by Ian Macdonald Maccormick and Phil Manzanera....
Friday night she got carried away
Susie lost everything she'd seen
Johnny found out she didn't understand
She wanted it all, she wanted it all

Saturday she was laughing it off
Johnny's healthy as he could be
Everyone seemed to agree
Susie don't need sympathy
But Sunday morning she drove her car into a wall

Lonely one
A wall is not a home
Lonely one
A soul is not a throne
Highs are highs
The truth is not unknown

Johnny ran down to the hospital ward
And he tried to apologize
He said, "You were too weak and you could not speak
And I've been blind and you know I'm crying
Sometimes I turn off, want the world to go away
But if you ever come around I'll never let you down"
And the doctor said, "Who's going to pay for the bed?" O-o-oh

Lonely one
The wall must feel the same (Why do they want all my time?)
Lonely one
It's such a childish game (Why isn't anything mine?)
Lonely one
You're going to go insane

Lonely one
The stars were meant for you (Why do they want all my time?)
Eyes are yours
But you don't own the view (Why isn't anything mine?)
Lonely one
Do what you've got to do

Time runs out for the innocent man
When he can't get to what he wants
Johnny wears shades and he holds a blade
You mustn't do that, you mustn't do that!
Sometimes you turn off, want the world to go away
Whatever keeps you alive
All that you need to survive
Anything all way to keep the things you know from bringing you down
Bringing you down
Bringing you down
'Cause they're all bringing you down

Bringing you down (Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19)
Bringing you down (Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19)
(Bringing you down) Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
(Bringing you down) Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
Saint Serene, get me on Flight 19
