lyrics

In our hands an enemy
We say we need to cope
Plumbs the depths of cruelty
To bastardize our hopes
We confess to it our dreams that aren’t coming true
It replies to it - it seems - they soon are going to

And the only way to stop it is with all your might to drop it

Cos it takes the life you fantasize
And dangles it before your eyes
It tells you it’s been prophesised
But in the bitter end... surprise!
The magic 8 ball
The magic 8 ball lies
The magic 8 ball
The magic 8 ball lies

Though, c’mon we know it’s dumb
A toy cannot divine
As soon as we’re a little bummed
We ask it for a sign
Thinking up a question fast we shake it to and fro
Hold our breath and pray at last the answer won’t be no

And the only way to stop it is with all your might to drop it

Cos it takes the life you fantasize
And dangles it before your eyes
It tells you it’s been prophesised
But in the bitter end... surprise!
The magic 8 ball
The magic 8 ball lies
The magic 8 ball
The magic 8 ball lies

Rather than rely on it couldn’t we just guess?
Wouldn’t we be better off?
As I see it, yes
If we give it more control than a person should
How would it affect us?
“Outlook not so good”

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'.
