LyricsEdit

You've learnt no lessons

all that time so cheaply spent

there's no youth culture

only masks they let you rent


Travels, travels in Nihilon

we've seen, no Jesus come and gone


Fashion, their vampire

drapes itself across your back

as you fall from style

it waits rebirth on its rack


Travels, travels in Nihilon

we've seen, no Jesus come and gone


Building your whimsy

hypnotising you to need

dance goes full circle

one step ahead of your greed


You've learnt no lessons

all those years to get it right

flashes of promise

burn out faster than strobe light
