Something's wrong, I know it, in an abstract sense,
There's some sort of commotion due to certain events,
I know there's a commotion cos your head's in your hands,
And people aren't standing where they usually stand.

No, don't tell me, I know this one, I know this one,
No, don't tell me, I know this one, I know this one,
No, don't tell me, I know this one, I know this one,
Something is happening with emotional resonance.

There's a difference in volume and the room is off-beam,
I've read about this, so I know what this means,
Loudness means dissatisfaction, silence disdain,
No clues! I'll work it out - it can't be hard to explain.

You look at me with sadness, or it's grief, or it's fright,
If there's a problem say so - or we'll be here all night,
This isn't like on TV, these emotions aren't raw,
And aren't articulated by a musical score

Cos I blame cinematic subtext and its influence on everyday life. I blame enigmatic glances and we assume that is the way that we're supposed to deal with strife. I blame implicit content where they never ever ever ever explain.

I can't concentrate if everybody's yelling. Refusal to articulate spawns unresolved tension.

Baby, I need you to live I need you in my life
You're in my dreams and if you leave my heart will break tonight
If everything I've learnt from pop and TV shows is law
That should sort it out so let's all get back to where we were before.

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'.
