Just when you think you're in the musical safety of 2015, a 1980s electropop asteroid crashes through your roof and lands on your dinner table. Take a flashlight and make your way to the shelter...


Reboot, Evolve

Verse 1 & 2:
Empty suits in office chairs
Serve themselves and no one cares
Their suits will not protect them from their doom

Adverts, lies and double-speak
Humanity displaced by greed
Our pockets will be emptied very soon

And we're waiting, waiting
Waiting for the Asteroid

Verse 3 & 4:
Indoor kids, computer pale
Your mummies say you cannot fail
The Asteroid will teach you otherwise

Prissy, zombie, Barbie wives
Gift wrapped, self-important lives
Luxury is a blindfold in disguise


Verse 5 & 6:
Our tropospheric ignorance
A shooting rock in hostile space
The cotton sky will strip away and burn

Religions poison open minds
The Death Ray heralds closing time
Pray no religious wars when we return

Its strange that we should wish this on the lives
Of friends; their kids and wives
But that is just the way it needs to be

We've made a species which is not a species to be proud of
And its time to let this species cease to be.


Reboot, Evolve
