I can see you in your Spanish hideaway You spend your hours counting the money that you've made You built your empire out as far as the eye can see But every night your cries are carried on the breeze You’re singing! It’s not enough! To be a real go getter It’s not enough! You gotta be one better It’s not enough! Let’s sing together It’s never gonna be enough! It’s never gonna be enough! I'm a self made man I've made a dime or two Invested wisely in the stocks they told me to I'll keep on going till I'm number one - the winner Then I'll carry on and into minus figures It’s not enough! To be a real go getter It’s not enough! You gotta be one better It’s not enough! Let’s sing together It’s never gonna be enough! It’s not enough! To be a real jet setter It’s not enough! You gotta be one better It’s not enough! Lets sing together It’s never gonna be enough! No it’s never gonna be enough No it’s never gonna be enough HEY! It’s not enough! To be a real go getter It’s not enough! You gotta be one better It’s not enough! Let’s sing together It’s never gonna be enough! It’s not enough! It’s never gonna be enough!

And so the sun sets on another baking day You’ve wiled away in your Ibizan hideaway Surrounded by intelligent and sparkle-eyed young girls Possessing almost all the money in the world So you’ve succeeded, that’s concluded, that’s a fact All goals achieved and superseded in fact But when you’re lying in your gossamer sheets You will always reach the same conclusion It’s not enough! Won’t make the world seem brighter It’s not enough! It won’t make people like you It’s not enough! Won’t make the sun feel warmer It’s not enough! On stage in the astrodome as screaming fills the hall And you feel absolutely nothing at all Rummage for emotions you’d planned on having now But they’re not there because there’s hotter shows in town Now you could leave your dreams abandoned through and through So you won’t be deflated when they come true There’s nothing more fulfilling than remaining unfulfilled And that would seem to be a fine solution It’s not enough! There’s always somewhere hotter It’s not enough! There’s always someone cooler It’s not enough! To make life worth living It’s not enough! Everything and nothing they’re never enough Everything and nothing are so easy to bluff As consumer electronics all get flatter and squarer Every aspiration just gets rarer and rarer When you succeed It’s just another rung on the ladder of failure When you succeed No-one’s gonna bother to catch you or save you

about

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
