Are 'Friends' Electric? Lyrics

Are 'Friends' Electric?
(1979 single, from "Replicas" album) 

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette 
Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing
In a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought
I remembered you 
(7.4)
So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you 
So I open the door
It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
'Please sit down'
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed 
You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love 
(7.4)
So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me 


Down In The Park
(Single from 'Replicas' album, 1979) 

Down in the park
Where the machmen
Meet the machines
And play 'Kill by numbers'
Down in the park
Wit a friend called 'Five' 
I was in a car crash
Or was it the war
But I've never been
Quite the same
Little white lies
Like 'I was there' 
Come to 'Zom Zoms'
A place to eat
Like it was built
In one day
You can watch the humans
Trying to run 
Oh look
There's a rape machine
I'd go outside
If he'd look the other way
You wouldn't believe
The things they do 
Down in the park
Where the chant is
'Death, death, death'
Until the sun cries morning
Down in the park
With friends of mine 
We are not lovers
We are not romantics
'We are here to serve you'
A different face
But the words never change
