lyrics

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'.
