    Lyrics

    I remember once as a boy of nine
    My sister eating glass
    Though she thought it strange
    For a glucose fruit
    She enjoyed the taste it had

    Having lived with you over seven years
    It's amazing looking back
    At the time our parents were of the view
    Outside marriage it would never last
    Now my parents they were
    Divorced last year
    And yours are separating soon
    If they'd spent less time picking holes in us
    Maybe they might not have been doomed

    I remember once, as a child at school
    My teacher calling me
    And it, wasn't 'Raymond, step forward please'
    It was 'O'Sullivan, come here'
    Now at school they teach you to be polite
    But as far as I am concerned
    If the ones who teach you
    Don't know themselves
    How on earth are we supposed to learn

    You might remember, just a few years back
    Man's first footprints on the moon
    Who'd have thought that after
    Such a giant step
    It would mean so little so soon
    Mean so little so soon

    If you go outside for a breath or air
    And you start by breathing in
    When you feel it's done you a power of good
    It could have done more damage than you'd think
    For the air we breath may be all that's ours
    But you mustn't be fooled by space
    At the rate we're going we'll all be dead
    Breathing in our very own waste

    Its amazing really, let me explain
    But the thought of ending up dust
    Is a clear reminder to those who feel
    They're superior to us...superior to us
