about

Recorded at Music APE Studios. Mix & Mastered in the Ligtherthief Bunker.

lyrics

and the young guns think that when life gets older

your devil and your angel's still right on your shoulders

a hard day's graft and a night on the sofa

driving your brain is the television chauffeur

when's my inspiration coming? I'd better check my smartphone

measure worth through the likes i'm just another asshole

on anti­social networks feeling better from you art­clones

connected to my neighbourhood, chuckle when I pass home

when you're growing up they say life is what you make it

then why do most of us think it's nicer when you take it?

the cost of lost religion is that buying shit is sacred

living in this culture a cycle difficult to break, it's

like eating Haribo when it's spinach that your body needs

or choosing a leader when the criminals are nominees

on my knees foraging subliminal monopolies

the cynic inside of me a tragedy that's also comedy

to reflect pomposity do you take the moral high ground?

mountains of ethics can't hide the sorrow felt in my sound

swallowing the wine now, indifferent to time now

inefficient with my fishing a trawling net until I sign out

is it being self­sufficient, disconnected or just offline?

so wrapped up in myself it's never stealth when I drop rhymes

showing me your choccy bics when you know I've gone and scoffed mine

socialist apocalypse, want biscuits of the posh kind

the pile at the bottom want a life unattainable

bottom dwellers choke pay the price unsustainable

patterns of consumption are twice as unnameable

when the wild lifestyles they are marketed as tameable

Doughnut­Dons, Sugar­Sirs are often the pimple­kings

I'm spring cleaning your mind and i'm bossing the simple things

the 'fat of the land' and the notion of 'sink or swim'

as ignorance is bliss blow a kiss to the think, and grin

running for a golden egg the ending of a rainbow

I insisted on a sequel but the ending was the same though

with remote control force we're exploding your channel

the TV seems sweet but it erodes your enamel
