SACRIFICE

Sacrifice is Gary's 14th. studio album.

Sacrifice returns Gary Numan to the status of an innovative musician who has and will continue to influence many musicians and countless fans in the future. Amazing lyrics, multiple guitars and his trademark synthesiser sound should remind the listener of the glory days of 'Replicas',

Pray
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

'Listen to my voice
We are gathered here today
To speak of things we have to do
And the 'friends' we have to call
From the middleground
From the darkness

It's been many years
Many years
Since we have faced a danger such as this
There is nowhere left to hide
No safety in old glories
No sanctuary

I've seen the same nightmare in all our dreams
But now it's come to Earth in search of us
So we must pray to the maker of all things
And wait for the storm to come'

Maker
We are disciples to your
Desire

Maker
We are the voices that sing
Your whispers

Maker
We are the rage that feeds your
Devotion

Maker
Rise from the ground and be our
Salvation


Deadliner
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

So I close my eyes and drift into sleep
But something is here
In the dark, in the dream
Like a cruel wind clutching my heart
I feel more than I see
Like a clue to a nightmare that I can't believe
Then it touches me and I try to scream
And a thought tears me inside
And I will do anything
Anything, you understand?
Just to wake up

Sometimes it almost makes me cry
Sometimes it seems to call my name out loud
Sometimes it feels like I'm alone
And then it comes for me again

I'm told it's called 'The unreality dream'
I'm told it's called 'The great American lie'
I'm told that this is like the vengence of God
I can't believe that God would do this to me

I've known fear many times but nothing like this
I'm so scared I can't breathe
I know I'm asleep but I know this is real
And nothing can help me here
I'm deep inside something and I may never come back
And then it was gone
And then I realised that 'The Rush' brought it in
And I will never sleep alone again

Sometimes it almost breaks my heart
Sometimes I swear I hear it laugh at me
Sometimes it feels like I could die
And then it leaves my dreams again

Feels like I'm fighting the possession of my soul
I'm told that this is called 'The sickness of need'
I've got to cut the sex connection and slide
A word of warning to the weary and wise


A Question Of Faith
(1994 single from "Sacrifice" album)

I'll crawl for you
Hurt if you want to
I'll be the thing that you feed

I'm not asking
For love or redemtion
I'll sell my guilt to your need

I'll breathe for you
Die if you want to
I'll mourn with you by my grave

I dare you to judge me
Now God has disowned me
I've come to you to be saved

They say I
Sold my soul
And we all reap
What we sow

I'll shine for you
Burn if you want to
You'll be the prize for my pain

I'll kill your God
And pray for salvation
I'll be the in to your sane

I'll lie for you
Be your conscience in you
Sacrifice reason for shame

I won't ask for
Faith or forgiveness
I'll be the blood in your veins

They say I
lost my way
I'll wait for
Judgement day

Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul

I'll be your darkness
In the night
I'll be a vampire calling
In the dead of night

I'll be your demon
Shadowman
I'll be your one confession

And if I can
I'll be your nightmare
And scream for you
I'll be your one possession
If you want me to

I'll be your secret
Memory
I'll be your exhibition of atrocity

They say I
Sold my soul
And we all reap
What we sow

They say I
Lost my way
I'll wait for
Judgement day

Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul
Don't pray for my soul

They kneel down, praise God
Shout 'Hallelujah'
Lift up their eyes while they pray

When children kill children
Don't it make them wonder?
Don't it make them question their faith?


Desire
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

Is this desire
Or a disease?
If I surrender
Will you come for me?
Will you come for me?

Is this your mercy
Or sacrifice?
No absolution
If you come for me
If you come for me

So will I suffer
Humility?
Divine forgiveness
When you come for me
When you come for me


Scar
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

I'm not
Crawling around
Looking for a friend
I'm not
Thinking the big I am
I'm not
Down on the ground
Looking for a cure
I'm not
Saying that I'm the man

And I'm not asking for your opinion
I'm not asking for a miracle
And I'm not asking you to remember me
Not asking for the ghost to call

I'm
Cold and corrupt
Looking for a heart
I'm
Trying to hide my scars
I'm
Talking to you
Like a shadow in the dark
I'm
Just trying to survive

(Call my name, hide my shame)
I call this human emotion
(Save my soul, save my soul)
I call this human corrosion

And I'm not asking for your emotion
Not asking for the sky to mend
And I'm not asking you for nostalgia
Not asking for the world to end
And I'm not asking for your opinion
I'm not asking for a miracle
And I'm not asking you to remember me
Not asking for the ghost to call


Love And Napalm
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

Call me 'Deadliner'
Nothing in here but dust
Are you afraid dear listener?
Nothing in here but us

I'll give you black rumours
'Stay away from everything I've seen'
I'll give you black rumours
'Stay away from everyone I've been'

The broken sound of love and lies
Still fill your room
Faded memories of shame
Will find you soon

I'll give you corrosion
Miracles are never what they seem
I'll give you corrosion
Welcome to the nightmare, not the dream

I can remember everything
Every promise, every lie
And how the words of strangers made me cry
All the pride, all the shame
All the friends that came from nowhere
And then hurried back again
I collected scars like a man at war
And I thought, 'Isn't life peculiar
Life takes you there, but not back'
No more, I'm just another old story

When God heard your prayer
It said, 'I am not your friend'
Laughed like a fallen angel
And said, 'I've no love to send'

It keeps a photograph
It likes to overdose on time
It said, 'Time to leave'
Like other friends of mine

I'll give you dark wonders
You are all invited to the show
I'll give you dominions
You are all invited to the show
I'll give you dead heroes
You are all invited to the show
I'll give you love and napalm
You are all invited to the show


You Walk In My Soul
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

When my eyes forst saw you
A vision
My heart missed a beat
And I cried
I knew that I loved you
And I do
Now you are my reason for living

And now
You walk in my soul
You dance in my heart
You draw breath for me
I'll stand by your side
I'll kneel at your feet
Share my life with me

I've waited years
I've waited all my life for you
You are my world
All of my dreams and I need you

I'll love you forever
And a day
I'll love you till God comes and takes me away

You sing to my soul
You play with my heart
You breathe life for me
I'll always be yours
And I'd die for you
Share my life with me

I can't believe
How much you mean to me, and so
Pick up a piece
A piece of my heart
And stay with me


Magic
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

When I sleep
I slide into
Some heaven
But no-one is there

If I believed
If I should wonder
IF I forgive
Then would you come for me?

When I sleep
I hear sad words
Songs of God
That show me 'The lie'

'I'll keep you safe
I'll keep you warm and
I'll keep you here
Alone forever'

And I believe in faith and magic
And I believe in love and wonder
And I'll believe in you when you come for me
And I'll believe in you when the world comes apart


Bleed
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

Someone is talking
But it's not conversation
Sounds more like a voice in my head
It says,
'I live in Nightmares,
I'm the new God of panic
And I'm waiting for you to come home to me'

'So boy, welcome to sleep,
I'm gonna make you, make you, make you bleed'

I could be dreaming
But then maybe that's fatal
There's nowhere to hide in your dreams
I'm so uneasy
I'm shaking and nervous
I'm alone in my room and I'm scared of it

So don't let me sleep
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed

My mother told me
'Don't believe in ghost stories
There's nothing to hurt you in here'
But she was wrong
And now it's come back to haunt me
It says it won't leave me alive for long

I don't want to sleep
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed


The Seed Of A Lie
('Sacrifice' album, 1994)

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 night, 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


Play Like God

I was young
I was cold but not insane
I had one good friend
It was a voice without a name
And so here we are
Same need and same mistake
But it could be yours
You see it could be even be yours

I said I've done things
That left me hurt and ashamed
She said all I need
Is a place to hide the pain
She said don't trust dreams
Because dreams will break your heart
I said little girls play in the house of shame
Some of us play like God

Play like God
Save my soul
Play like God
I know that God don't live here in my heart

She said touch my soul
I've never touched someone so cold
She said touch my heart
I've never touched something so old
She said play like God
And then you can play with me
I moved underground
And caught the isolation blues
Sound familiar?

She said kiss my face
I've seen things you'll never see
She said kiss my arse
I've been everything I need
She said memories
Are only there to make you bleed
I said little girls play in big boys games
Some of us play but cry

Play like God
Save my soul
Play like God
I know that God don't live here in my world

Where do we belong?
She said I've been sick
But then no-one's clean for long
She said pray for me
Like God, I've fucked the world
I said little girls play with the big disease
Some of us play with you


Metal Beat

Nobody knew me, so I bought some time
An hour or two with a friend of mine
Somebody lied, so I'll burn their soul
Somebody screamed and then the fire burned cold

I cure things
Sweet young things
I'll take their pain away
I cure things
Sweet young things
Like someone walks on their grave

I booked a small room in a cheap motel
Somewhere to hide and a cure to sell
I call it passion; I'll make them bleed
No one to love but a ghost to feed
I was a puppet pulling my own strings
I can't believe that I did such things
I was a shadow, but God forgives
Now I'm a priest and Jesus lives

I cure things
Sweet young things
I'll take their pain away
I cure things
Sweet young things
Like someone walks on their grave

How can I save you if you don't confess?
Kneel down, bitch and be truly blessed


Whisper Of Truth

   

So I fall
Like the rain
Sometimes I almost cry again
† 
Iíve seen my pictures
Peeling from walls
Itís like a witness of truth
To the end of it all
† 
Here we are
No one came
Iíve been waiting for this for years
Do you wonder ?
How Iím feeling
Did you whisper the truth?
Like a memory of pain
† 
No angel to guide me
No angel can find me
† 
Walk away†
Walk away from me
I wonít cry
I wonít cry
† 
Take my life
Take my life from me
I wonít cry
I wonít cry
† 
Like a whisper of truth save me
Like a whisper of truth save me
Like a whisper of truth save me
Like a whisper of truth save me
Save me
Save me
