What would I be thinking about if life had gone in a different direction? A dubstep/new wave hybrid. Burial meets Chameleons UK.


You would have thought by now
I’d be more concerned about
More important things
Like the cash in the accounts

Or which woman in which town
Or which car to take out
Instead of rust on the strings
And the leaks in the house

Alarm sounds reveille
Fade out the dreams
A slave to the machines
That should be working for me

Do you have one more hit?
Can we try it again?
The distant future’s closer now than it’s ever been

It doesn’t sound fresh
“Too something” I guess

The pessimist
The point of it
Is dull and it’s not over yet

The kids are telling me that they’re selling me
There’s a brand new style that’s much too tough to take

Another melancholy song
Tomorrow’s finally gone
The distant future passing by and today is done
