lyrics

Well you’re dancing at the disco
And you’re dancing through the night
You still want some stimulation
But you find it all so trite
Is there more to life than dancing?
Is there more to life than sex?
No-one ever finds there’s more to life
Than failure and regret

Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
Sometimes I wonder how to stop the show
Before we all become more comatose
Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
I had ambition, was a dynamo
All that potential now the status quo
Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes

We all used to be attractive
And we used to have it all
So let’s get back to the good times
Through denial and alcohol
We’re all trying to tell the difference
Between ennui and pain
It’s a cargo cult society
So let’s go round again

Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
Sometimes I wonder why it all plateaus
I’m treading water in the overflow
Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
Sometimes I wonder where the wonder goes
I wanna live in polyphonic prose
I don’t mean to come over grandiose
It’s just I wonder where the wonder goes

Oxidation from within
Putrefaction for the win
Apathy and lethargy
They're the only goals for me

And as we wonder where the wonder goes
Why aren’t we basking in the afterglow?
Now we’re all living in Guantanamo
Nobody wonders where the wonder goes
So when you’re tiring of the anecdotes
And being carried by the undertow
And we’re all fighting for the last lifeboat
You too will wonder where the wonder goes

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.

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