The Flat Earth
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


The Earth can be any shape you want it
Any shape at all
Dark and cold or bright and warm
Long or thin or small
But it's home and all I ever had
And maybe why for me the Earth is flat

Friends have often asked me why
I'm sensitive about my height
I would look around and say
Hmm, I thought I was immune
All my life I have waited
to be given any word
It was screaming to be heard
Please remember

The Earth can be any shape you want it
Any shape at all
Dark and cold or bright and warm
Long or thin or small
But it's home and all I ever had
and maybe why for me the Earth is flat

Turn the island to the storm tonight
Then when they spill the demon seed
Turn and face into the wind
All along you still believed
Believed you were immune
And if love is all you're missing
Look into your heart
Is anybody home?
Please remember

The Earth can be any shape you want it
Any in the world
But don't you point that raygun at me
I might just explode
There are stones buried in your soul
And only a fool would blame the death of rock and roll, yeah
And in time you'll come to understand
The flat old Earth is in your gentle hands

Bought this cassette at Kmart along with Purple Rain. Two equally important albums for my adolescence in 1984.

I’ve been a Thomas Dolby fan since the 80’s and I think Mat Hector is a great drummer. Just so you know: Roland SPD-30 is not a sample pad, Roland SPD-SX is a sample pad. I can recommend both of them, though.

The title track of Thomas Dolby's best album, and 4 people vote down... 28 years after the original version. This is an amazing version.

Peter Jonas

Who replaced Thomas Dolby with John Malkovich? Just kidding. We (Americans) love you, Thomas Dolby! You're smart, talented, funny and kind-hearted; a true artist. Keep doing what you do.

Gerry Moylan

It was a great show. And amazing to see Thomas after over 20 years and still looking fantastic!

Creaulx

Absolutely with you on this. The album version of the tune can still raise the hair on my arms. Would love to hear it with three female backup singers...

MartinLaurance

It would sound equally genius if a reggae singer was to cover it.

Lincoln's fish and other stuff

Still have this cassette!
I love this haunting circle of sound. And yes, for me, the Earth is Flat!

davis aumonier
