Who Needs It

Album: Breaking Glass (1980)
  • Living in the shadow of the mushroom tower
    Who needs it?
    Find no shelter from that kind of shower
    Who needs it?
    Nuclear rain, melting my brain
    Who needs it - not you, not me, who needs this insanity?

    At the top of the tower there's a creature who wants power
    Who needs it? (Who needs it?)
    If he gets in the dungeon, he could just press the button
    Who needs it? (Who needs it?)
    He'll flee inside, and you'll have nowhere to hide
    Who needs it - not you, not me, who needs this insanity?

    Who needs it, who needs it?
    I need it like a hole in the head
    Don't need it, don't need it
    Here comes the era, the era of the living dead

    (Who needs it, who needs it?)
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)

    Who needs it, who needs it?
    I need it like a hole in the head
    Don't need it, don't need it
    Here comes the era, the era of the living dead
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)

    Who needs it, who needs it?
    I need it like a hole in the head
    Don't need it, don't need it
    Here comes the era, the era of the living dead
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)

    Who needs it, who needs it?
    I need it like a hole in the head
    Don't need it, don't need it
    Here comes the era, the era of the living dead
    (Who needs it, who needs it?)

    Thank you
