"The seed of a lie" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I'm a ghost in the dark and I'm yours.
I belong in the past and I'm yours.
Like a song you forget, and I'm yours.
Like a dream in the night, and I'm yours.

The wrong place?
The wrong time?
I don't know.
The wrong face?
Yours or mine?
I don't know.

Like a tear when you sleep, I'll be yours.
Like a scar that won't fade, I'll be yours.
Like a pain in the cold, I'll be yours.
Like a fear in the heart, I'll be yours.

The wrong word when you cry
I will be
Like the seed of a lie
I will be
Like the germ of disease
I will be
Like the last one who cared
I will be

Like your shadow
I will haunt you
Do you remember?
I said to you
'Love is a mountain
But harder to climb.
It should be forever
But love is unkind
To me.
Don't let me down.'

And you let me down

    General CommentI thought it was 'like the job of disease' but it's quite hard to be sure... regardless, this is one of my favorite Numan songs. I think rottentothecore got the meaning right. You can really hear the emotion in his voice when he sings 'don't let me down'... I can't even think about this song without getting tears in my eyes! This song is truly beautiful, a masterpiece.
