DISCONNECT

I've been disconnected from my router

Now there's nothing left for me to do

I can't hear the sound of children playing

They're all locked inside, chained to a tube


Life looks better when the sun is going down (x2)


Girl let's disconnect tonight

Trapped in technicolour, I want black and white

I've been walking round these streets for hours

Watching silhouettes as they take shape

Ghosts are coalescing in the window

Each unhappy household is the same

Life looks better when the sun is going down (x2)

Girl let's disconnect tonight

Trapped in technicolour, I want black and white

Girl let's disconnect tonight

We're all locked inside and told its paradise

Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely town.



WORKING FOR GOOGLE


Wake in the morning, filled with dread

I can't escape my pounding head

Bare white knuckles. traffic jams

Fluro lights and coffee cans

I'm hitting all my KPIs

Days counting down to lonely nights

I don't need to see the sun

Don't care if tomorrow comes

I've been searching

I've been searching

I've been searching...


And now I'm working for Google!

And I'm feeling fine

Everyone's working for Google

Where you'll have the time of your life

Teamwork has occupied my life

Double the rations, half the price

Pledge alliegence to the cause

Never step outside the laws

Do I love my job today

Help me I can't get away

Lost my name tag, lost my name

In the end we're all the same!

And now I'm working for Google!

And i"m feeling fine

Everyone's working for Google

Where you'll have the time of your life

THE LAST PUBLIC TELEPHONE

Hey, hello? Thought I’d call to let you know

I’ve given up and I’d like to come back home

It’s been too long since I’ve slept in my own bed

I need your help ‘cause I’m in over my head

Hey hello, we just called to let you know

We’re getting old and we don’t want to be alone

Time is a balm that helps to heal the wounds we cause

Or so I’ve heard. It hasn’t healed any of yours

My brain is a blur, full of broken blood and bone

I send you my love through the last public telephone

Waiting for word, only dial tone again

I say “Hello, hello? it’s me…”

I guess it’s really the end

RUNAWAY WORLD

One think you can’t escape… welcome to a runaway world

I can’t keep up with the pace that we’re going

It’s like I’m riding the fin of a shark

I keep on losing touch, I can’t connect enough

It keeps on running around in my head, what she meant when she said

Do you really wanna waste away?

Holding out for the perfect day?

I don’t really wanna miss this train

Hey, one thing you can’t escape - welcome to a runaway world

I ask and she says its easy peasy

Just watch how I keep on turning the wheel

I suck a cigarette in the scare human air

It keeps on running around in my head what she meant when she said

Do you really wanna waste away?

Holding out for the perfect day?

I don’t really wanna miss this train

Hey, one thing you can’t escape - welcome to a runaway world

Taste the rain, catch the thunder

Change my name, lose my number

Feel the rays on my face

Do you really wanna waste away?

Holding out for the perfect day?

I don’t really wanna miss this train.

Hey, one thing you can’t escape - welcome to a runaway world
