  • And I'm thinking what's the deal
    With the facts that they conceal
    But I'm thinking what's the harm
    With a bit of rhetoric and charm

    But I can't quite comprehend
    A beginning or an end
    No I can't quite stomach this

    You and me we're gonna take
    To the skies for common sake
    We'll fly amongst the cirrus clouds
    20,000 feet we'll clock the crowds
    And from that height we'll leak the lies
    And unveil our damaged skies
    'cause we can't quite stomach this

    Look, all I'm trying to say is
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight

    The sun and the sea could power us
    No-longer cower in oil lust
    Chernobyl is still a stain
    Of the dangers of this game
    I still can't quite comprehend
    A beginning or an end
    No I can't quite stomach this

    Look, all I'm trying to say is
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight

    We'll embark on our great voyage to the sun
    And we'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
    What are we waiting for?
    What are we waiting for?
    What are we waiting for?

    Look, all I'm trying to say is
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight

    We embark on our great voyage to the sun
    We'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
    Just like the ocean we won't be pacific anymore
    No longer in coexistence with other species, this is flawed

    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
