Additional Information

Bizarrely with Numan's continued success came many enemies in the media. This non-stop abuse led Gary to aim his next single I Die You Die at the press. The lyrics were powerful and straight to the point, and the single became another Top 10 hit No 8 in the UK charts. An alternate take was featured on just six white label copies; meanwhile in Holland there were many different coloured vinyl releases of the single. The cover shows Gary wearing a black leather jumpsuit with red horizontal and vertical lines and a red streak in his hair and lets not forget the hoover attachment. 
 

I Die : You Die  Lyrics

I Die : You Die 
(Single, 1980)

This is not love
This is not even worth a point of view
In Echo Park I
Pause for effect
And whisper 'Who are you?'

They crawl out of their holes for me
And I die : You die
Hear them laugh
And watch them turn on me
And I die : You die
See my scars
They call me such things
Tear me, tear me, tear me

But I have your names
Screaming 'You will suffer'
And, 'You're all too late'
Now I feel young
Does everything stop when the old tape fails?

They crawl out of their holes for me
And I die : You die
Hear them laugh
And watch them turn on me
And I die : You die
See my scars
They call me such things
Tear me, tear me, tear me

But I'm still frightened by the telephone... 


Down In The Park (Piano Version) 
(B-Side, 'I Die : You Die' single 1980)
