about

a man surrounds himself with all the gadgets of modern life and an array of credit cards...but is he really happy?

lyrics

How many noughts will it take
On your paycheque?
Will it ever be enough?
You're still that lonely child,
No amount of money can ever cover it up.

I wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Tell you I don't care,
Bout your car, your CD player,
Or the house of cards you're building.
Wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Bout all those things you own.
You'll end up all alone
In your house of cards.

How many phones do you need,
If no one loves you,
And only your boss ever calls?
You put in the overtime,
But the higher you climb,
The further you've got to fall.

I wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Tell you I don't care,
Bout your car, your CD player,
Or the house of cards you're building.
Wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Bout all those things you own.
You'll end up all alone
In your house of cards.

And it's a house of cards you're building
But your house of cards,
Is falling down, down.

I wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Cos I don't really care.
Bout your car, your CD player,
Or the house of cards you're building.
Wanna cut right through the bullshit,
Bout all those things you own.
You'll end up all alone
In your house of cards.

However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
