Growing in that house Filled with so much stuff Given so much space Too much is never enough To occupy my time I didn't need nobody You'd interrupt and tempers fray For that I'm sorry We look the same way We do the same things People say we even sound like each other We look the same way We do the same things People say we even sound like each other You answer the telephone Someone we know asking after your father I don't know, he's not home He'll come back when you stop calling 2 different cities Over time I would drift away In my mindless fog I never seemed to realise your pain Put us side by side in the leather boots We'll put them all to shame The time for talk comes later Just play the game We look the same way We do the same things People say we even sound like each other We look the same way We do the same things People say we even sound like each other You answer the telephone Someone we know asking after your father I don't know, he's not home He'll come back when you stop calling

Hey Shauna 02:32
Hey Shauna, nothing could be warmer Than the feeling of your hand in mine When you turn my way you illuminate my day And I think about you all the time I've been waiting for so long so I've written a song To tell you all about how pretty you are And I wish we could snuggle and listen to the Buggles Sing how video killed the radio star It's okay (it's okay) You illuminate my day It's okay (it's okay) You illuminate my day It's okay (it's okay) I won't stand in your way It's okay I don't want you to change Hey Shauna, what could be warmer Than the feeling of your heartbeat near? We can drink and dance, take a roadtrip to France I'll buy you costly cocktails and give you half of my beer So let's watch sunsets with no regrets And the radio turned up loud With your favourite tunes, helium balloons Come and lift me off of this cloud It's okay (it's okay) You illuminate my day It's okay (it's okay) You illuminate my day It's okay (it's okay) I won't stand in your way It's okay I don't want you to change

It turns out the revolution will be broadcast Gill Scott-Heron clearly forgot to forecast The advent of the internet and smartphones And whatever gadget's waiting for us next You won't have just one source of information We all transmit our own radio station Though there's a chance that nobody's listening The PRS will track you down somehow We've only come a fraction of the way We've only come a fraction of the way When I wake I don't want to go right back to normal Cos it's my only shield against the world All governments will slowly open their eyes All class-A drugs will one day be legalised So you will be able to skip out in the break and lose yourself on skag And a support group will be there for you when you bounce back All the pizza, darts and porn that you can download 1 more self-facilitating media node And Louis Walsh would change the paradigm to make some cash But he didn't cos it's just soooo Masterchef We've only come a fraction of the way We've only come a fraction of the way When I wake I don't want to go right back to normal Cos it's my only shield against the world Either Private Eye or Charlie Hebdo Will manufacture sepia-tinted photos Of Kim Jong-un and Abubakr Shekau in a passionate embrace In the words of Alan Partridge "Kiss my face!" (Airline) Executives accept their nuts or go to jail Terrorists will send each other anthrax in the mail Some people think the Berlin Wall is in Beijing I still don't think stupidity will win We've only come a fraction of the way We've only come a fraction of the way When I wake I don't want to go right back to normal Cos it's my only shield against the world

Working (yourself) into (a corner) You started (a war) we're all (disillusioned) Not your (place to say) that people (are wrong) The next (to be silenced) the voice (is your own) All that you see is not all there is Just cos you speak don't make it true Information taken in context This is not something new The night terrors didn't even exist It was all in your mind, it was always a myth And I am an island surrounded by treacherous rocks OoooOOOoOOoOOoOoOOoOh, etc. Never (at rest) tortured (by energy) Wasted (prodigiously) poured (into space) The implications (are shattering) "I don't believe in hell!" The struggle (the peace) fight it out amongst yourselves!" All that you see is not all there is Just cos you speak don't make it true Information taken in context This is not something new All that you see is not all there is Just cos you speak don't make it true Information out of context There must be something you can do The night terrors didn't even exist It was all in your mind, it was always a myth And I am an island surrounded by treacherous rocks OoooOOOoOOoOOoOoOOoOh, etc.
