"I ask you to sing a nightsingin'
I want you to sing like people used to sing
I want you to sing like" "Big Audio Dynamite"
"They're like cockroaches all the time"

See that guy over there, he's as crazy as hell
Spending his time inside a wishing well
Gazing at water, saying what if I...
And he's still there gazing in six months time

He's got a girl that's crazy 'bout him
But her heart is locked away with him
He doesn't realise that he holds the key
To unlock the pain and set them free

But that's alright, a little melancholy maybe
That's a part of you see
On a one way ticket, headed to Nowheresville
I know 'cause I've already been

Heard about Sister Elly was a party girl
Now she've seen the troubles of a future world
Tellin' everybody when the bombs gonna drop
And she's packed in a job at the corner shop

She joined the church, help to get away
Now she sees the Lord every time she prays
Asks for forgiveness for all our sins
But when she sits down she doesn't know where to begin

But that's alright, a little melancholy maybe
That's a part of you see
On a one way ticket, headed to Nowheresville
I know 'cause I've already been

A little bit of la la la la love
A little bit of la la la la love
A little bit of la la la la love
A little bit of la la la la love

Where d'ya think you're goin'
You ain't goin' nowhere
Ain't no way of knowing
If you've not been there

But that's alright, a little melancholy maybe
That's a part of you see
On a one way ticketm headed to Nowheresville
I know 'cause I've already been

That's alright, a little melancholy maybe
That's a part of you see
On a one way ticket, headed for Nowheresville
I know 'cause I've already been
Yeah, I know 'cause I've already been
That's right, I know 'cause I've already been
