"Crowds" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
What do you want of me
What do you long from me
A slim Pixie, thin and forlorn
A count, white and drawn
What do you make of me
What can you take from me
Pallid landscapes off my frown
Let me rip you up and down

For you I came to forsake
Lay wide despise and hate
I sing of you in my demented songs
For you and your stimulations
Take what you can of me
Rip what you can off me
And this I'll say to you
And hope that it gets through

You worthless bitch
You fickle shit
You would spit on me
You would make me spit
And when the Judas hour arrives
And like the Jesus Jews you epitomize
I'll still be here as strong as you
And I'll walk away in spite of you

And I'll walk away
Walk away
Walk away

    General CommentIt's a song about how fickle fans -'Crowds'- can be.

    Interestingly enough, considering the "You will spit on me" line, my mother saw the band as a support act in '79 which apparently resulted in Murphy declaring something along the lines of "We've played some of the roughest venues in the country, then we come here, and the little shits spit at me!"

    General Commentto me its about a breakup, and to him the worthless bitch broke up with him for reasons he does not know. Calling her a fickle shit meaning that she loved him a day ago and now its over between them.
