Yesterday I was listening to Systems in the car ...

Singing along ...

Then a thought occurred to me ..

Do you think John meant "I cant stay here in Ultravox long" and one day "I will resign ".

Thought?

For what it's worth, I think it probably does hint at this.
But then, John Foxx doesn't tend to stay with anything for long per se, it seems to be in his nature to move on and change, looking for new forms of expression etc.
The lyrics to Metamatic are reflective in many ways too, and not written that long after (in fact even perhaps at the same time as) the songs on Systems of Romance.
Touch and Go is great in this respect.
I'm trying something new now - is it going to work...

I'm a cartographer by profession. John sings about MAPS a lot. Hmmm... there's something in that I think wink

Me too. That's why in 2001 I made John sign my map of London...
