​Notes On Achieving Orbit

This song is by Future Of The Left and appears on the album The Plot Against Common Sense (2012).

Where were you when Russell Brand discovered fire?
Did you join with the crowds in Trafalgar Square and watch on the giant screen?
This year the big day will be marked in part by the screening of a second series ... of yawning.

Where were you when Pele cured cancer?
Did you watch on the stand or sit on your hands as the realization dawned?
Of course, we don't know if he ever really got involved with a test tube ... the science parts.

Simon says we have no future
At least in terms of life on earth
Even though we are ascending
We cannot tell our kids apart

Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Notes

Were where you when Diff'rent Strokes ruled the world?
Were you sat in a chair with ridiculous hair as the cash began to flow?
I was a child then, but that doesn't mean I can't remember fearing tie-dye. And Douglas Hurd.

Simon says we have no future
At least in terms of life on earth
Even though we are ascending
We cannot tell our kids apart

Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Notes

Going bald was the new Nirvana
Staying out late was the new Nirvana
Dressing your child as a prostitute was the quickest route to fame
Girls Aloud were the new Nirvana
Then any old shit was the new Nirvana
The terrible seconds turn to days and still I cannot show my face
The blatant stars and fields that call me back to where they cannot fail me
[Bowled?] the space in to my hands and bow to gravity's demands
