"Real Different" lyrics - THE BOOMTOWN RATS

"Real Different"

The world at any time might take its own thalidomide,
It's just one of those things
You see eternity fell out of love when we invented self-destruct,
It was one of those things
Now you're walkin' in, you're walkin' out, you're steppin' in and steppin' round
And it don't change a thing
These fools who have given you these mystical new points of view
That never meant a thing

Oh let's get drunk and watch the TV, a special's on tonight
I'll fill my pocket full of stones and I'll throw 'em at the light
'Cause I stop and I think, well,
It could be different
A new day but it's
No different
It's all changed, but it's
No different
So stop
And walk away-a-hey-hey, for more of the same

I don't wanna argue with ya, anyway the end result's always the same
It's just I tune into the never-never, everything will sing forever,
Ain't it always the same
They're beamin' local hope out on the on the stero waves
Salvation's on the dial but a foot's in the grave

So you stop and think, well it's
Real different
It's not new but it
Seems different
It all changed well,
What's the difference
And turn away
For more of the same

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-uwoh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-uwoh

It's the little things they do
That scare me so
Somethin' in their smile
That tells me things ain't kooooosher
I'm getting too different, I'm getting too dangerous
Doctor, what's the cure
Tonight's another set of rules, tonight is not like other nights
I'm almost sure
The doctor clicks his tongue with his real head case
And awaits the generator of rehabilitation

He stops and thinks well,
This could be different
A new day but it's
No different
All changed but
It's not different
So stop
And turn away-hey-hey-hey,
Maybe someday

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-uwoh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-uwoh (repeats)

It's no different
(Doodoo, a-doodoo, a-doo-doo, a-doodoo, a-doot doot!)
