LYRICS

The idea of a record being a performance is interesting to me, especially as I grow up and start to take it all a bit more seriously (in both a good and a bad way). It snapshots a second in time, for you and for us, and what YOU bring to it is just as important as what we did. This song is about the realisation that the outdated concept of 'the rock and roll dream' is now a myth, and in fact its demise is no bad thing whatsoever. It removes corporate ties from the art and frees it up to be as it was intended to be. Music and art is so subjective, the point of doing it should just be to BE.

And now weíre almost at the end of this performance
Weíre near the curtain call
And now the credits roll and everyone together takes a bow
And I go home alone
And now weíre almost at the end of the production
The falling audience applauds
Behind the drama is the humdrum of this twice-nightly charade
Itís getting pretty old

My neuro bolero
Iím sinking every single night
With cortex akimbo
And drinking everything in sight
My lobes are in limbo
This overthinking is my life
I know it and now Iím done.

So now weíre coming to the end of this creation
The others thinking 'bout a job
Despite the atmosphere of disinterest and disbelief and doubt
Somethingís telling me donít stop
And so youíd think this was the end of the adventure
The termination of the tale
But no-one could have known the understudy waiting in the wings
To finish off the play

My neuro bolero
Iím sinking every single night
With cortex akimbo
And drinking everything in sight
My lobes are in limbo
This overthinking is my life
I know it and now Iím done.

Sweet the pill with sour milk
At least Iíve got some to spill
Missed my chance of Top Of The Pops
Keep my stance to call the shots
Not giving up
Never giving up
Give it all to be...

My neuro bolero
Iím drinking every single night
With cortex akimbo
And sinking everything in sight
My lobes are in limbo
'Cos overthinking is my life
I know it
I'll own it
'Cos now I've overthrown it
Outgrown it, and now Iím done.
