Muscle Bound
by Spandau Ballet

We're building fires that will burn until morning
The smell of books and hot stone surrounds us
Tough is the leather that's strapped to my skin
Strong are the bonds that we make

We feel the steam as it rises around us
Up from the soil that is cracking its back
Tough is the leather that's strapped to my skin
Strong are the bonds that we sing

Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long

We're building fires that will burn until morning
The smell of books and hot stone surrounds us
Tough is the leather that's strapped to my skin
Strong are the bonds that we make

To feel the pulsing from chanter to mountain
Down through the vein and into the grain
Strong is the shoulder that moves to the time
Here is the land it can break

Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Gotta work till you're musclebound, all night long
Gotta work till you're musclebound, all night long

Tough is the leather that's strapped to my skin
Strong are the bonds that we sing

Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long
Gotta work till you're musclebound, all night long
Work till you're musclebound, all night long

before "true" these guys were quite good.

The call off the money destroys real unrelenting raw talent

Nova Avalon

I love pre "true" Spandu more as well

This video is epic, I love the new romantic period. They don't enough credit for their influence on music videos and the fashion.

pasquale davino

the video as russell mulcany the 3 singles good song

Ralph Jackson

When this song was out (double A side with Glow,UK number 10 in May 1981) my best friend at school,who wasn't at all a fan of the New Romantics,said of Spandau Ballet "they go in for all this macho singing". The idea of "macho singing" as a genre was a new one on me but it made me laugh at the time.

Arthur Rimbaud

what i wouldn't have given back in 1982 to be able to watch my favorite videos over and again instead of waiting hours sitting through Mtv's ceaseless parade of dreck for a few minutes bliss here and there. Journeys To Glory and Diamond are flawless

ronan pellen

yeh that's why he said 'back in 1982'

neil williams

+BubblegumShallow true im a soul boy but loved the ballet early stuff.. white north london soul boys

emma duncan

jeez, was there some law that stated, "Every music video shot in the 80's must include at least one dwarf."
