"88 Seconds in Greensboro" as written by and Paul David Humphreys Andrew Mc Cluskey....
88 Seconds
Is all it takes
88 Seconds
Don't make mistakes
We've seen you
We can see you
In red and blue
In black and white
Under crystal skies
In full day light
You know it
God you know it
88 seconds
Is all it takes
In 88 seconds
We don't make mistakes
We know you
Oh, yes we have known you
Times are changing
But not in our street
Once we played there
Like the good times
You know it
God, you know it
They're heading for
A shallow grave
With a big black cross
By a tall white house
To a place down south
We won't forget
To be stabbed in the back
By a man they met
In 88 seconds
In Greensboro
In 88 seconds
In Greensboro
88 seconds
In Greensboro
Is all we take

    General CommentA bit different for OMD, and definitely a little unusual on the Album (considering the singles So In Love, and Secret) yet a good song all the same. Good imagry.
