Additional Information

Cars was the first single credited to Gary Numan the name Numan was taken from Yellow Pages when Gary came across the name Neumann he dropped e and the extra n and ended up with NUMAN. Cars quickly went to number one it also reached the American top ten. Gary was now greeted as one of Britain 's biggest stars. He put together a hugely elaborate, futuristic stage show and went on a money-losing tour, and also began to indulge his hobby as an amateur pilot with his newfound wealth.
 

Cars Lyrics

Cars 
(Single from 'The Pleasure Principle' album, 1979.)

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
I't's the only way to live
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me, please
If I open my door
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars 



Metal
('The Pleasure Principle' album, 1979)

We're in the building
Where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by
The liquid engineers
Like you.

My Mallory heart
Is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor
Just like I'm real
Like you.

The sound of metal
I want to be
You
I could learn to be a man
Like you.

Plug me in
And turn me on
Oh everything is moving.

I need my treatment
It's tomorrow they send me
Singing 'I am an American'.
Do you?

Picture this
If I could make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?

And who are you
And how can I try
Here inside I like metal
Aren't you

All I know
Is no-one dies
I'm still confusing love with need
