  • Suburbia, where the suburbs met Utopia
    (Where the suburbs met Utopia)

    Lost in the high street, where the dogs run
    Roaming suburban boys
    Mother's got a hairdo to be done
    She says they're too old for toys
    Stood by the bus stop with a felt pen
    In this suburban hell
    And in the distance a police car
    To break the suburban spell

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Break a window by the town hall
    Listen, the siren screams
    There in the distance, like a roll call
    Of all the suburban dreams

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    (Hang around, hang around)

    It's on the front page of the papers
    This is their hour of need
    Where's a policeman when you need one
    To blame the colour TV?

    Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia

    Run with the dogs tonight
    You can't hide
    Run with the dogs tonight
    You can't hide
    (You can't hide, you can't hide)
    In Suburbia

    (Suburbia, where the suburbs met Utopia)
    (What kind of dream was this, so easy to destroy?)
    (A world together, the cities of the past)
    (Mews, slums of the future)
    (Suburbia, where the suburbs met Utopia)
    (Suburbia, where the suburbs met Utopia)
    (Where the suburbs met Utopia)
