  • And with these humble tools
    We can trigger any emotion we choose
    But we'll just settle to pump out repeated relics diluted with time

    You see the airwaves are clogged up
    But the fickle they, lap it up
    They need to be drowned in condiments
    And left to ponder sense

    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here

    Snap back to reality
    The turbulence is throwing us from side to side
    But no matter how hard you try
    Surrounded by cannon fodder inundated with stagnant sounds
    You see the airwaves are clogged up
    But the fickle they, lap it up
    They need to be drowned in condiments
    And left to ponder sense

    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here

    Transformation in progress

    Transformation in progress, transformation complete

    Lightning strikes, a flash flood of colour

    Lightning strikes, I can't stand the heat

    Lightning strikes, a flash flood of colour

    I... i... i... I can't stand the heat

    A flash flood of colour

    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here

    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here
    Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
