background
"Consumed by romantic myth - for both of them it's the real death of glamour.... therefore making their worldly exist entwinded. And dizzily circling the small black wooden floor while the solitary mirrored globe revolves."

"Symbolic of another planet; another desination - somewhere void of the feeling of futility that is omnipresent. LEAVING WITH STYLE as the drug kicks in - propelling them softly on their fantsatic voyage... the glitterball radiates all around like some guiding light." - Jim, e-mail, 11th March 1998




lyrics
Full of doubt, took the easy way out.
Always said they couldn't find their place.
Among some real dark stuff, they got to thinking enough.
Remember Halcyon Days.
We'll spend our time with a bottle of wine,
And a love that knows no human state.
Never got to wake up early,
Never got to feel so poorly,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
Lifts me up, then leaves me to fall.
Glitterball, radiate round the hall,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

One step, two step, three step, four.
Drag me to the middle, then you pulled me to the floor.
Glitterball, radiate round the hall,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

And I've been captured by imagination.
I feel the faint vibration in the air.
Been taken hostage by the one creation.
Anticipate the night that's in your hair.

Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
Lifts me up, then leaves me to fall.
Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
Lifts me up, then leaves me to fall.
Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

One step, two step, three step, four.
Drag me to the middle, then you pulled me to the floor.
Glitterball, radiate round the hall.
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.

One final day,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.
Don't make me wait,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.
Don't make me wait,
As the great unloved go dancing all the way.
