Track Name: Turning Into Nothing
Spinning round on the carousel
Fill your hopes in the wishing well
Expensive drinks in a cheap hotel
Hear the ring of the abbey bell
I could see your face in a fairytale
But now you've gone down the path to fail
The path to fail, the ship has sailed

Turning into nothing
Turning into nothing

Standing close to the lamppost
Pale make-up as a ghost
Envisioning how things could be
Intoxicated on Chinese tea
Invisible to the universe
Cast the spell you feel so cursed
You feel so cursed, your getting worse

Turning into nothing
Turning into nothing

Where to stand when there's no plan?
All we need is a helping hand
Lost in the dark
Hear the hounds bark
Cannot reignite our spark
Won't get very far without a car
Won't get very far without a car

Turning into nothing
Turning into nothing
Track Name: Circles
Have to learn the hard way
Give me a holiday
Before the tide turns
For this broken heart burns
It's all such a blur
Thinking of the future
Give me reason
I need you in this season

I'm not going forward
And like before I'm going backwards

Going round in circles

I've always been so shy
Though girl you catch my eye
Searching around
Seeking for something never found

On the road to nowhere
They all gather to stop and stare

Going round in circles

I've been deceived
For so long I cannot see
I've been betrayed
What we want is so delayed
Will things ever change?

We're not going forwards
and we're still here going backwards
Track Name: Insomnia
I've got this picture on my wall
Reminding me of nights in the dance hall
Now those times have become history
They have changed their ways and so have we

I've had a nightmare once again
Faithless I guess I've lost my Zen
Baby can you show me what is real?
Take away this tenderness I feel

It's just the way it is
Culture destroyed for years
Girl wash away those tears

I know, I know we're not alone
I know, I know we're not alone

I jump on the old subway train
Think of cabaret and cheap champagne
Baby will I see your face again?
If I could I'd pay 5 million yen

I know, I know I'm not alone
I know, I know you're never coming back
I know, I know the dream has gone
I know, I know but I can move on

I've got your picture on my wall
For your love I'm never ever gonna crawl
But I've got your picture at my beck and call
But I've got your picture at my beck and call
Track Name: Strip it Down
There's a traffic jam in my head
There's a silence in my heart
Is this for real?
Nothing left to reveal

Only fragments left of the city
Forgotten like a dynasty
There's no mystery
Because now it's history
We have to learn
Nothing lasts forever

So strip it down
It doesn't matter anyway
So strip it down
Leave it all behind

There's a place where we go in our sleep
Inclinations of our desires
Is it heaven?
Or 9/11?
This is good as it will get
Everybody cheats so place your bet
Kneel to pray
Until judgement day
We have to know
Nobody is perfect

So strip it down
It doesn't matter anyway
So strip it down
Leave it all behind

So strip it down
It doesn't matter anyway
So strip it down
Leave it all behind

Cus' it will rise again someday
Until our judgement day
Track Name: Swimming With The Dolphins
Wearing your heart on a sleeve
Been this way since new years eve
Haven't got a hope in the world
Youth today is growing old

They think it's trivial
A sentimental soul
They'll never listen
All we want is some fun

Let's go swimming
With the dolphins
If you want to drown
Escape this town with me
With me

Sunshine glaze into your eyes
UV protection disguise
Tied to the whipping post
Alienated like a ghost

Living had ended
Back in 1999
That's your perception
But don't you deceive me

Let's go swimming
With the dolphins
If you want to drown
Escape this town with me
Turn things right round with me
If you're feeling down

Let's go swimming
With the dolphins
If you want to drown
Escape this town with me
Turn things right round with me
Track Name: The Astronauts (Light Years Away)
Does he really ever wanna be conventional?
Does she really ever wanna be the perfect housewife?
I'd really rather be an astronaut and leave this planet

Our world today seems so cliché
The summer sky is turning grey

It's all been done before
Protests and hopeless wars
And it will never change a thing
Even if Bob Dylan could sing
We're flying light years
Light years away

Does she really actually have to be the working girl?
Don't you know I really want to be David Cameron's bitch?
Do we really ever have a choice or should we get numb?

I've got DT's and so have you
Gone to A&E
Been sniffing glue because there's nothing to do

It's all been done before
Protests and hopeless wars
And it will never change a thing
Even if Bob Dylan could sing
We're flying light years
Light years away

It's all been done before
Light years away
Today

It's all been done before
