Album: Flat-Pack Philosophy (2006)

  • Paradise is a platinum card
    Behind the wheel of your car
    With your new pair of trainers
    Designer clothes
    Go on, I'll have seven of those
    And go to ski where it snows
    Its bounty sustains us

    In love with the never never
    Wish I could get something I really need

    With all the latest ringtones
    You buy-to-let your new home
    Don't care what you're spending
    Then just like that
    Reminders under the mat
    Of your flat full of tat
    The pile of debts never ending

    In love with the never never
    Wish I could get something I really need
