Lyrics

(Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody E-E-Everybody
Everybody jump to attention…)

Each morning after Sunblest
Feel the benefit, mental arithmetic
I waited by the staffroom
In time for benediction
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there’s confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave

To our voices nobody’s listening
We shiver in the rain by the touchline
Then a coach ride to the station
“My lord, the carriage awaiteth!”
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there’s confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave
This must be the place I waited years to leave
And how
How long?

I’m listening to the words I thought I’d never hear again
A litany of saints and other ordinary men
Kneeling on the parquet
Whatever has gone wrong?
The fear and feeling hopelessness
I don’t want to belong

I dreamt I was back in uniform
And a candidate for examination
History, someone had blundered
And a voice rapped “knuckle under!”
Living a law just short of delusion
When we fall in love there’s confusion
This must be the place I waited years to leave
This must be the place I waited years to leave
And how
And how
How long?

(Trebuet nash narod odnogo)
[Our people demand only…]

  1. Each morning after Sunblest
    Feel the benefit, mental arithmetic
    I waited by the staffroom
    in time for benediction

    Living a law just short of delusion
    When we fall in love there's confusion
    This must be the place I waited years to leave

    To our voices nobody's listening
    We shiver in the rain by the touchline
    Then a coach ride to the station
    'My lord, the carriage awaiteth!'

    Living a law just short of delusion
    When we fall in love there's confusion
    This must be the place I waited years to leave
    This must be the place I waited years to leave
    And how? How long?

    I'm listening to the words I thought I'd never hear again
    A litany of saints and other ordinary men
    Kneeling on the parquet

    and a voice rapped 'knuckle under!'

    Living a law just short of delusion
    When we fall in love there's confusion
    This must be the place I waited years to leave
    This must be the place I waited years to leave
    And how? And how? How long?

  2. The end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s were made forever unforgettable by two events. Quenn The Miracle album, and Behavior. I don’t know which one I listened to several times, from start to finish. For me, the Behavior album has an autumn vibe, which is my favorite season. I put the JBL earphones in my ears, sit out in the woods, watch the October scenery, the falling leaves … Thank you big hearted guys for all your work, thank you for this album. I send my greetings from Subotica, Serbia. Long and meaningful life, in health, happiness. PET SHOP BOYS!

  3. When I was listening to Behaviour every day in 90, this is the only track I didn't really like at first. But, instead of skipping it, I would listen to it anyway, and its atmosphere, coming right after Being boring, was part of the overall listening experience of that album. So I kinda liked progressively this song because it was on that album. Only several years later I finally recognized that I like this song, and in fact I have liked it from almost the beginning.
