​The Neverness Hoax

This song is by Steve Kilbey and appears on the album Remindlessness (1990).

Have I told you 'bout the neverness hoax
A vile trick perpetrated on you innocent folks
Was it in the fall of '93
During the rise of the galaxy
A tiny shift in our trajectory
A little more substance to the unimaginary

(And you smile) the neverness hoax

The confederation was in disgrace
They jettisoned their rubbish into inner space
Sweet toxic love all over the place
Cupid's agent off his face



Have I told you 'bout the neverness hoax
Religion to many, to others the butt of their jokes
There came a disturbance in the Indian sea
Something in the depths, a monstrosity
An invisible woman kept a file on me
Trying to seduce my immediacy

The mechanical royalties will never recover
The pleasure back from her animal lover
The futures slide back one after another
And wouldn't you know it, it's the people that suffer
From the neverness hoax
