I, I am just a number
I hang on to what I got
You say what you want to
I, I, I, I just try to stay alive

I put myself together
People say, get away, somebody will turn you in
Life, life without surrender
Togetherness ecstasy is what I need

I can laugh, but I should cry
When love and understanding are the ultimate crimes

And I said, walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there

She says she remembers
Time long time ago
We belong together
I, I, I, I turn up the radio

Lies, lies and propaganda
I gonna tell you what I need
Life, life, without surrender
Togetherness ecstasy is what I need

I got yours and you got mine
And I can swim, but I should fly

Let me, walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there

Ain't no crime to believe
I took my money, I bet my life
What you see is what you get
But it sure ain't what we need, hey

Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there

Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
Oh, oh, oh, sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
