Learned by one Passed to another But we can't stop checking ideas Don't be fooled by correlation Learned by one Passed to another But we can't stop checking ideas Don't be fooled by correlation If we haven't considered all of the variables Learned by one Passed to another But we can't stop checking ideas Don't be fooled by correlation Just cos it suits you doesn't make it correct There's no need to be terrified of living and not knowing

She came from Manchester but sounded like a southerner And moved into Muswell Hill When your folks decided they were broke It must have been a bitter pill Skateboard giiiiiirl All the things you did for me More than dirty laundry Skateboard giiiiiirl Brought me into this world At first you became a nurse Took the old man on an African adventure Doing single mums favours Those packets of Quavers Will never be a nutritional breakfast

FSB 02:57
90% approval rating Scaring the shit out of their citizens Gets no complaints from their constituents Militiamen populating the government Effectively dealt with all of their dissidents Evident dangers of supporting the opposition So there is no chance of ever losing power Look out for ourselves, charging for kilowatt hours They used to speak of diversified industry But oil and gas can't fund you endlessly If journalists aren't careful with column fillers Immunity is given to contract killers Training received from the state security Secret agreements circumvent the electorate If you disagree you must hate the motherland Corruption as standard Castles built in the sand

Strong and stable, steady and able Bernie's feet are firmly under the table He made a conscious decision not to take a position of power Cos he couldn't trust himself for even an hour Everybody wants a minute Just a quick question A sudden congestion before you finish When we all clock off we want to get our rocks off Well, he's no different from you Flying through life like a cannonball Has he ever thought what it's like on the other side Through life like a cannonball If the winds change his direction's the same Generation X had come to expect That things would get better than the previous year Work on his house at the weekend Match of the Day and then Top Gear His dad always told him straighten up and fly right But he don't know what to do now his parent are gone He said "I've had the same feeling every day of my life And now I'm being told that it's wrong" Flying through life like a cannonball Has he ever thought what it's like on the other side Through life like a cannonball If the winds change his direction's the same

I've walked every road Watch the sun cross the sky I'll share any load Never say goodbye The writing on the wall Je suis un poisson J'aime les fleurs I've walked every road Watch the sun cross the sky I'll share any load Just never say goodbye I'm sure that one day I'll miss being here With insects and trees I'll wait patiently

Heat Death 03:33
Calm down, the more you move the more you lose Your light will be fading soon After all the heat will be released In the end the universe will be at peace Don't fear the heat death Take comfort in the entropy

A million shattered pieces perfectly reformed Something to protect from the static I never guessed I'd have to make this journey A hundred miles the desert stretched beneath me Before it finally made way for something fertile With each new step the thaw creeps further Climbing on the slanted staircase Where the keycard keeps a secret beneath it Fresh, clean and replenished See if it's been moved when you're out of the room A trumpet plays in the street Avoiding defecation, missing a beat A neat town turning upside down Rooftop terraces where the pigeons drown a dream Of refugees rejected seven times a second And sucking the smug sense of satisfaction and a subtle reaction Every hundred metres take a rest From walking further and further Past the city limits Past the witty cynics Wait a minute in the latin quarter Bought a beret, hooray Won't protect from the rain Sensible ladies 100 greatest hits of the 80s Maybe sentimental, reach a better level Staring off the edge of the bed A miniature kingdom Waiting for the girl You changed my world You changed my world

Won't you sing a song for me One that we can sing 'til the end Sing it about bonhomie And fraternity with your friends They might let you down sometimes But it's okay Tides will turn and wee can learn To laugh another day Won't you make some food for me A sandwich filled with ham and cheese My mouth is open wide Waiting for some tasty treats If the rumbling in my belly Starts to grow It could cause catastrophe 1883, Krakatoa Today I'm skipping work I missed the turn-off and kept going My head is full of half-baked plans The world is bigger Than a TV screen can show me I want to t see it all first-hand Now I'm watching Tottenham And they might just win a game It's a question that hinges upon The goals of Harry Kane Sometimes they play badly But mostly they play nice But mostly isn't good enough There is no second prize (except for TV money) As the sun goes down Opportunities drift away None of my intentions thrive When I procrastinate The work of today Must now wait until tomorrow The evening is for drinking And anything that may follow Today I'm skipping work I missed the turn-off and kept going My head is full of half-baked plans The world is bigger Than a TV screen can show me I want to t see it all first-hand

Think of these words when you feel like giving up Failure is success that just hasn't happened yet You're learning clues every time you're slipping up An impossible leap in 100 little steps
