"Astronaut" as written by Jack Christopher Allsopp and Paul Sayer....
Living in a bedsit
Close to the world's end,
Sitting in his y-fronts
Sponging off his girlfriend Ca-arey
She says life's right there babe
Should be getting on with it
(?) better tell her that you've all but squandered it
It's silly

And his relatives all think that it's a shame (a shame)
And they'd say that it was a mystery if his Dad wasn't exactly the same
The same

He's been a space cadet for years
Says one day he'll be an astronaut
Floating in the hemisphere
And looking down on Hampton Court
But he's always late
And knows one day he'll graduate
Then he'll be floating in the ozone
High above the empire
High above the empire
State state state
He's living in a
State state state
He's in a proper
State state state
They've got him in a
State state state

Sofa surfer, likes a little gamble
A few dodgy debts that he says he can handle
Maybe
Never not (?)
Stays in most nights
Jostling to pixelated princesses on websites
Frantically

And his family all say that it's a waste (a waste)
And they wash their mouths out with self-righteousness
To hide the bitter taste
The taste

He's been a space cadet for years
Says one day he'll be an astronaut
Floating in the hemisphere
And looking down on Hampton Court
But he's always late
And knows one day he'll graduate
Then he'll be floating in the ozone
High above the empire
High above the empire

Carey's love is cold and congealed
Like last night's take-away
And she feels
She might have to do some kind
Of midnight flit
All there is to say has been said
And as the sky's turning pink
She leaves her keys by the sink
And takes one last look at our hero's face

He's been a space cadet for years
Says one day he'll be an astronaut
Floating in the hemisphere
And looking down on Hampton Court
But he's always late
And knows one day he'll graduate
Then he'll be floating in the ozone
High above the empire
High above the empire
High above the empire state

Oh oh la la la la
x3

Now life goes on
It will be played out
But something's s'posed to happen man before the fade out
x 3
Before the fade out x 5
