Lyrics
:

We put the flowers in our dressing room
We are no longer children
We've all grown up now
We set you up and you let us down
We are majority as you can see

We are one and we're all equal
In the eyes of the world we're all the same
We are the disco kids on Saturday night
We are four in a bed and the little one said

We were running so fast 
We didn't even know what had hit us
And we were blind to the world
And the world was blind to us

We are majority

We are the sea of faces staring out
We are the sound of the terraces, the football crowds
We say 'get your gear off, we want it now'
And when we've had it once, we'll have it again
'Cause we're young and we're on the run
And we don't know where we're going, having fun
Just like you and you and you and you
We are four in a bed and the little one said

We were running so fast 
We didn't even know what had hit us
And we were blind to the world
And the world was blind to us

We are majority

We see them rise
We see them fall
The broken trust and the promises rust
When will another one bite the dust, bite the dust
We see them rise
We see them fall
The broken trust and the promises rust
When will another one bite the dust, bite the dust

We give everything thing that we have to you
We buy the books and the records and the politics
It was your words that saved our dreams
And there were times when you made us feel like human beings

You say hello, are you listing now?
We say hello, we say hello, hello
We are the lost generation, we're calling out
We are four in a bed and the little one said

We were running so fast 
We didn't even know what had hit us
And we were blind to the world
And the world was blind to us

We are majority

Notes
:Recorded 29th-30th November 1984: E-Zee Hire Studios, London. Demo tape sessions recorded by live sound engineer Nigel Luby. The band sent these tapes to America in December 1984 to legendary US record producer Jimmy Iovine who agreed to record the band in January 1985. The album was going to be titled “Absolute Reality” and a tour was booked to coincide with its projected release. Unfortunately, Iovine never came to Britain to record with The Alarm, Iovine claimed an illness in his family prevented him from travelling. However, it didn’t stop him recording “Once Upon A Time” for Simple Minds. Rumour has it that The Alarm were gazumped by Simple Minds who secured Iovine’s services for a larger advance payment.
