Don't Fall
by The Chameleons

Alone in a room I've been in once before
Shapes in the hall I'm running for the door
I'm out on the edge but I'm not defeated yet
I hear my name above everything else
Mark! Mark! Above everything else
Don't fall.
To this freak out
Nothing's familiar
And nothing seems to fit into the scheme of things
Seeing faces where there shouldn't be faces
No-one's really certain what tomorrow brings
Don't fall my friend
This nightmare never ends.
Hiding inside a room that's running red
The place to be exists only in your head
And the focus of fear in the creases of a dress
A female dress
How did I come to be drowning in this mess
Ahh! Fuckin' mess
Don't fall.
To this freak out
Nothing's familiar
(Rest of chorus)
Don't fall
I know your back's against the wall
But this roaring silence won't devour us all.
Freak out nothing's familiar
Something's rearranged the scheme of things
Mistakes don't matter.

Manchester in the early eighties was a fairly grim place economically and socially. Maybe the Chameleons brilliant musical set pieces were a bit too dark for the mainstream to embrace at the time. As T.S. Eliot observed, people can't face too much reality.

Larry Goldstein

Certainly couldn't be worse than it is now.

Kerry House
