Driving down the strip in a convertible it's a dream T shirts with slogans and a gang who look suspiciously clean for the streets Coquettishly waving at the cars that pass Sharing our burgers and abusing staff All my friends from central casting laugh As we Take our life By the horns Being free Be ourselves And we dance Through the street Causing Mayhem, albeit quite restrained Mayhem - parameters rule! I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that" It implies anarchy Mayhem, government approved Mayhem, sanctioning the beat I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that" I don't know what to believe anymore We are all unique but in a most peculiar way Garish individuals yet easily interchanged At regular intervals a lesson arrives To teach about growth within your personal life They're all much the same, but then we're all much alike So you Take your life By the horns Being free Be yourself Just like me Just like me Causing Mayhem, without agenda, just Mayhem with no message at all I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that" I'm the kooky one, see Mayhem, we can all join in Mayhem, with respect and esteem I always wanted to say "I always wanted to say that" It's witty without being remotely amusing at all

Everybody! You want to be The top dog Permanently And that consumes Your waking hours Until such time That they're not waking hours The human mind is an amazing piece of kit But it's accepting nature doesn't really sit With it's capacity for always being right There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight There'll be a quarrel over who said what to whom There'll be a quibble over when you should say "whom" There'll be some pettiness about some oversight There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight Everybody! Loves inconsequence And they're loving it In the progressive tense And you know To win this time Won't take Too much thinking time Now nit-picking over technicalities And feeling pressure over trivialities It all means that there is just one sure thing in sight There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight There'll be some bickering about a point inferred There'll be recriminations over the dessert There'll be a fracas over something misapplied There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight There'll be annoyance over yet-unknown offence There'll be some stress over ambiguous expense There'll be some sulking and a whispering campaign There'll be a squabble at the rotary club again Why is there so much violence in Britain today? When people can't control themselves, it's moral/ social decay We're on a downward spiral it's the end of the age We're sinking deep into the mire of self destruction and rage There'll be some fisticuffs and something will get spilt There'll be a cry of "just forget it, you'll get killed" There'll be a tussle it'll help to clear the air There'll be a story to relate to the au pair There'll be squabble at the rotary club tonight

Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign I'm a massive egotist with time on my hands I'm a housebound sociopath - hear my demands! I'm a Tory spin doctor who doesn't understand All the ins and outs but someone said it's big in Japan Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign Get the House of Commons painted aquamarine Hype my band to number one hundred and eighteen Claim that Charlie Sheen has fallen down a ravine Tell a dozen people that you're in the canteen Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign Boasting to my friends I'm at a gig that they're not Modestly confessing I've a swanky new job Oh, and by the way I'm in Marseilles on a yacht Here's a picture of my dog, he's got a hat on. Lol. Twitter update, twitter update I'm gonna publish my twitter update Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign What happened to mystique? A little mystery in life? I know too much about too much but none of it's worthwhile We moan about CCTV, "they're spying day and night" Well you surveille yourselves without infringing human rights Outrage at the way the papers distort the news Campaign for a dissident jailed in Timbuktu To be honest, I'm not bothered, it's the least I can do To make me feel important with a mouse click or two Serious face, serious face I'm gonna wear my serious face The levels of banality we've recently reached Are at levels we've not seen since the invention of speech And giving extra outlets for the boring to preach It's akin to evolution just admitting defeat Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign Twitter campaign, twitter campaign I'm gonna start my own twitter campaign

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'.
