Ribbon Road lyrics


Its a Silk Cut World

Got no voice? Can't be heard?br> You open your mouth but they don't hear a word
You hold out your hand but no-one takes it
You smile with your heart but everyone fakes it
Ho-ho, yeah-yeah
She's a wonderful, beautiful girl
But everything is plastic
It's a silk cut world

Pick it up and have a chew
You think it's green but it's really blue
Apples are red and roses are too
But there ain't no smell from either of you
We believe every boy and girl
But really, it's a silk cut world

Chorus
We're all floating along
floating along, floating along
We're all floating along
Down, down, down

Did we borrow or did we lend
Did we sink too fast, have we got the bends
It looks just right and shiny bright
these virtual blues are just not right
Smoke it, eat it, taste it, feel it
Touch it, beat it, see it, hear it
Stick it up your nose or roll it round your tongue
It seems just right but you know it's wrong
We believe every boy and girl
But really, it's a silk cut world

Take a drag there's nothing there
You think it's love but they don't care
It's all a dream, a pin-up girl,
but really it's a silk cut world
Ho-ho, yeah-yeah
It's a wonderful, beautiful world
But everything is plastic
Every boy, every girl
every song, every word
every picture, every frame
every business, every game
every thought, every deed
every notion, every need
every play, every book
every glance, every look
every smile, every frown
every city, every town
We're all floating along
floating along, floating along
We're all floating along
Down, down, down
