lyrics

Minor roles, delivering expert lines, spellbinding us all.

Read out-loud, well-rehearsed,

memorising textbook lies designed to enthral.

Pretending and lying, performing for you;

bending and shying, reforming the truth:

Crack packs of actors,

back to back teams beaming gleaming dreams.

Screaming thieves heave in evening TV screens.

Lies on lies right to your face,

shamelessly reclining in a comfortable chair.

Pretending and lying, performing for you;

Bending and shying, reforming the truth.

Unending, beguiling, perfuming the polluted room.



Crack packs of actors,

back to back teams beaming gleaming dreams.

Screaming thieves heave in evening TV screens.

Somewhere under rainy weather is blue, forgiving and unfair.
Thunder never breaks through utopian rainbows.

An uninterrupted display of sunsets to blame.

No-one’s corrupt or disgraced, unsettled or two-faced,

sinking caviar champagne deriding the view.

Minor roles, delivering expert lines, 

spellbinding us all into slumber,

prating blatant platitudes to the vast numbers.

Spending and buying and forming your view,

bending and shying, reforming the truth.

Unending, beguiling, perfuming the room.



Crack packs of actors,

back to back teams beaming gleaming dreams.

Screaming thieves heave in evening TV screens.

Nowhere is immune to the charm.

Link arms and dance with your foe.

Swear to join in chanting something enchanting for

no-one knows the tune like their palm.

Link arms and glance at your toes.

Shun all but singing and dancing,

enhancing the world.
