Moon

I spoke to you today 
You're thousands of miles away 
I didn't see your face or hear your voice 
I drank my vitamin C from a can of apple juice 
Ate my ready meal, crawled back to my tomb 

We're already living on the moon 
We're already living on the moon 
We're not ready 
but we're already living on the moon 

I woke from a dream so intense 
I could not make sense 
Of up, left, right or down 
I knew I wouldn't make it into town 
I'm out of breath, my guitar's out of tune 
And no amount of alcohol could unspin my room 

We're already living on the moon 
We're already living on the moon 
We're not ready but 
we're already living on the moon 

We're already racing round the paper lamp shade 
We're already spinning like a ten pence piece 
We're already eating from a broken plate 
We're down to the last of the Cornish Cream 
We see our reflections in the back of the spoon 
And we're sick of this living on the moon 

I was standing in the queue 
Waiting for my rescue 
The atmosphere was thinly spun 
I was the last one that they let on 
Now flash into the black 
With someone's elbow in my back 
Acceleration showing on my face 
Not enough space; I've had enough of space 
Not enough space; I've had enough... 

My muscles feel like they're wasting away 
My poor body never felt so old 
Everything feels silent and cold 
The ringing in my ears is unwelcome company 
My beat-up dreams won't let me be 

We're already living on the moon 
We're already living on the moon 
We're not ready but 
we're already living on the moon 

We're already racing round the paper lamp shade 
We're already spinning like a ten pence piece 
We're already eating from a broken plate 
We're down to the last of the Cornish Cream 
We're all distorted from the curvature of space 
And it's plain for all to see 
That we're sick of these tranquil seas 

We'd rather be living in the trees 
We'd rather be living in the trees 
We're not ready! 
We're not ready!
