lyrics

I’ve been a new kid in the town
Running on and losing ground
Living still in 93
When I bought my first cd

I’ve been a geek and been a freak
I guess I still am, so I don't speak
I wanted to be a cartoon
Or maybe Paddy McAloon

Adolescent changes
I hate them like blank pages
Why did we have to choose
Like Parker Lewis, he couldn’t lose

There is no explaining
The sun shines but it's raining
Music was so great then
It still is, i'm just complaining

I looked up to the sky / and the rains
The aeroplane flied high / fell down on the plains
Computers where ok / and we got along
It took me time to say / although it was wrong

I’ve been a new kid in this town
I ran around and covered ground
Living still in 99
When i thought the world was mine

I’ve been a downer, been away
Guess i had too much time to play
I wanted to be on TV
Just say my shit and then break free

I looked up to the sky / and the rains
The aeroplane flied high / fell down on the plains
Computers where ok / and we got along
It took me time to say / although it was wrong
And i felt safe
I looked up to the sky / away from there
The aeroplane flied high / just breathing the air
Computers where ok / with nowhere to stay
It took me time to say / just for a day

They tend to blend pop melodies with electric and electronic sounds and rhythms, building songs with samples, loops and vocals. Their live performances are more dynamic, with guitars, laptops, bass and synths marrying new wave aesthetics with dance music. ... more
