lyrics

Once a street of art
With a small screen left
The lights went out
With little regret

Belmont Street
A shadow of itself
Sharks and dives
Mirror empty shelves

Physical connections
Are lost in the past
Digital convenience
Collector outcasts

A slow industry
Smoking cigars
Peer to peer networks
Landed from Mars

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

A culture office
Replaced the last strand
Hard to make up
In fairyland

Cobbled streets
Junk in the cracks
Liquor churches
Playing the tracks

Supposed to be closer
More connected
Further away
Every day

Sit in the house
It's too easy
Those hours waiting
Completely needy

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Middle men are gone
Desperate for relevance
Mass marketed
For lifestyle benefits

There are less dreamers
Looking for fame
Struggling devotees
Still doing the same

Work work work
Get paid paid paid
Too busy feeling pockets
Vibrating away

Gormless glances
At plastic toys
Search engines
Background noise

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified

Independents died
Corporates cried
Clinging to games
Sales diversified
