Lyrics

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
keep your act together
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
but everything is new just once
and we are history
if we can't make it

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
no prize for good endeavour
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
until you fall out of style
and oblivion
comes round to take you

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
nothing lasts forever
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round it all goes round
it all goes round it all goes round

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine

it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round

you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
and then you lose it you lose it you lose it

Lyrics

I didn't mean to care
the way things were
somewhere outside my own nowhere

I didn't care to mean
the words I would sing
I'd let them fly with plastic wings

I didn't mean to care
but I strayed too near
oh, life can be a breathtaker

I didn't care to mean
until the news came in
that the smallest thing can change everything

it's not who you are
it's what you choose

such strange things do take place
breathtaker gave me back my oxygen

I didn't care to mean
the words I would sing
but the smallest song can make someone sing

it's not who you are
it's what you choose

I Don't Know How To Party

The sheep song! Anybody who's seen us live in the latter part of the 00's knows how it feels, when sheep cry.

Thumping electro-rock dedicated to all the people shying in the corner of the room of a hot party.

Lyrics

social gravity
keeps our gaze on the ground
moral vanity
won't let us see all sides
no deeper meaning
behind the lines
in which we wait for hours and hours

don't invite me
I can't get the beat
cos I don't know how to party
I don't know how to groove
or to shake it loose
no, I don't know how to party

frail identity
confusion by design
false diversity
neatly categorized
we keep miswanting
the same lies
that made our fathers drop the fight

don't invite me
I can't get the beat
cos I don't know how to party
I don't know how to groove
or to shake it loose
no, I don't know how to party
