  • The fascination
    Far-out disengage
    Everything is meaningless
    Let's atom-bomb the stage
    Destination violation
    Far-out disrespect

    What did you expect
    What did you expect
    Mr Candidate-Elect
    Was it everything you planned
    By a palm tree in the sand
    The information from the station
    Lulled you off to sleep
    Everything is heavy
    And the figures are too steep

    You'll survive the wreck
    What did you expect
    What did you expect
    I'm afraid you're incorrect
    And you're breaking up the band
    By a palm tree in the sand
    Coming down in recovery
    We fail to understand
    Wait around for discovery
    With Merchandising plans
    So take the dive
