lyrics

New York, London, Paris, Milan, Rio, Venezuela, Madrid, Jerusalem.

Washington DC, Crewe, Shrewsbury or Shrowsbury, Aberystwyth and Connah's Quay,
Floating on the Trent and Mersey.

I've seen you everywhere, reflected in tapestries,
I've seen you on the beach,
and on reality TV,
It's a car-crash world, suicidity.

Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.

JG Ballard, Jay Griffiths, Charlie Chaplin, Carl Sagan, Adolf Hitler, Maggie Thatcher,
Ronald and his Ray Gun.

Changed the World, for better or for worse,
Some gave gifts, or cancer and a curse.

Now's the time to decide if the future's worth saving.

It's a plane crash world, suicidity,
Fueled by fossils, the damage is colossal,
Nothing to chain but our losses.

Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.

Middle-class book clubs,
High-rent wage-slugs,
Docudrama,
Factory farmer,
Nothing but desert in the panarama.

Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
Come to the club at the edge of the cliff and party 'til the end o time,
Outcasts have X-ray eyes.
