This song is performed by XTC and appears on the album Black Sea (1980).
You've learnt no lessons
all that time so cheaply spent
there's no youth culture
only masks they let you rent

Travels, travels in Nihilon
we've seen, no Jesus come and gone

Fashion, their vampire
drapes itself across your back
as you fall from style
it waits rebirth on its rack

Travels, travels in Nihilon
we've seen, no Jesus come and gone

Building your whimsy
hypnotising you to need
dance goes full circle
one step ahead of your greed

Travels, travels in Nihilon
we've seen, no Jesus come and gone

You've learnt no lessons
all those years to get it right
flashes of promise
burn out faster than strobe light

Travels, travels in Nihilon
we've seen, no Jesus come and gone
Travels, travels in Nihilon
we've seen, no Jesus come and gone
