This is the original version of 'It's Not Enough', before we asked Kid Kasio if he'd like to help us out with it.

lyrics

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All goals achieved and superseded in fact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

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'.
