Back to the Back Room

This song is by Edwyn Collins and appears on the album Doctor Syntax (2002).

I've been doing a power of thinking
The Good Ship Lollipop is sinking
But I've been having such a good time
Just watching from the shoreline
Call waiting on the telephone
Only problem being the phone is off the hook
And besides, there's no-one home

All except in the backrooom
I'm operating in a vacuum
I'm going back to the backroom
I'm operating in a vacuum

Revolution on the South Bank
I poured poison in the think tank
Got out before the big crash
Caught the tail end of the whiplash
Reminiscing with the diehards
Uptight with the old guard
Saying out of the spotlight
Don't get blinded by the spotlight

I'm going back to the backroom
I'm operating in a vacuum
I'm going back to the backroom
I'm operating in a vacuum

On the Good Ship Lollipop
It's a nice trip to the candy shop
But the key to your success
Was the key to your excess
Was the key to your success
Was the key to your excess
Going back to the backroom
I'm operating in a vacuum
