"The Next Life" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
See you in your next life
When we'll fly away for good
Stars in our own car
We can drive away from here

Far away
So far away
Down to Worthing
And work there

Far away
We'll go far away
And flog ice creams
'Til the company's on its knees

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

See you in your next life
When we'll fly away for good

    General CommentThis reminds of a David Bowie song. Its a really beautiful song. Sounds kinda like it belongs in a musical.

    General CommentI once spoke to a guy who thought that Worthing is the place where you're worthy. I still like the poetry in that thought, despite it not being accurate.

    (and if you are that guy, I miss you, sometimes)
