"Chorus" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
Go ahead with your dreamin'
For what it's worth
Or you'll be stricken bound
Kickin' up dirt
For when it's dark
You never know what the night it may bring

Go ahead with your schemin'
And shop at home
You'll find treasure
While cookin' up bones
But the knife is sharp
You'd better watch that you don't cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Go ahead with your dreamin'
For what it's worth
Or you'll be stricken bound
Kickin' up dirt
For when it's dark
You never know what the night it may bring

Go ahead with your schemin'
And shop at home
You'll find treasure
While cookin' up bones
But the knife is sharp
You'd better watch that you don't cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Holy Moses our hearts are screaming
Souls are lifting only dreaming
We'll be waiting some are praying
For a time when no one's cheating

The sunlight rising over the horizon
Just a distant memory a dawn chorus
Birds singing bells ringing
In our hearts in our minds

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

    General Commentwell,as Andy said, a lot of his lyrics meant nothing,they just made them up on the spot to fit the music.But there is something of a theme here.

    General CommentThis song was inspired by television footage of the burning oil fields in Kuwait during the first Gulf War. As a result, it can be assumed that the feeling is of killing your environment in which also sustains you. (You better watch that you don't cut your hands) I essentially agree with Sergioutfox.

    General Commentif you look at the pictures by the lyrics that come with the album 'Chorus', the one opposite chorus lyrics is of a skyscraper with some surveyors standing in the foreground, suggesting that they have built this monstrosity in a landscape where you can see trees in the background, but which have been covered by the building. There is another picture of a white beach with turquoise water and blue sky-very idyllic, and then one of some business people, which may symbolise man taking over the world and it ends with a mother and daughter riding bicycles down a path through a park, showing how man and nature combine.
