Lyric "Floating Away"
The baby won't stop screaming, there are holes in the ceiling.
We're all running on empty, all I can think about is leaving.
The lift's beyond repair, screw faces, head down,
take the stairs and soon I'm gonna be floating away.
Do you remember you used to say?

What'll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here we're going to the moon my dear.
I see the spaceman over my shoulder wave to earth and disappear.
He's floating away.

I got a job in a kitchen till I got sick of their bitching.
Future seemed like fiction. I'm on an intergalactic mission
but back on earth the time ticked on.
I looked around and wondered where had my spaceman gone?
Like all those promises of childhood,
if I could find a way to keep them like I should you know I would,
Instead of floating away every time I could.

What'll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here we're going to the moon my dear.
I see the spaceman over my shoulder wave to earth and disappear,
I can't breathe at this atmosphere.
Is it just me or did it get colder?
We can be far away from here.

The baby stopped it's screaming, am I awake or dreaming?
The time is different up here and even though you're gone I feel you near.
And so for what it's worth there's nothing left for me down on earth.
I didn't even notice you went away but I remember you used to say

What'll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here we're going to the moon my dear.
I see the spaceman over my shoulder wave to earth and disappear,
If I could have one more chance to dress older maybe I could face this fear,
I can't breathe at this atmosphere.
Is it just me or did it get colder?
Lying alone it's all so clear and from up hear
I love how tiny down there everything appears.
Floating away.

Sonic Boom Six

Sonic Boom Six (often shortened to SB6) are a five-piece band from Manchester, United Kingdom. Their eclectic sound combines different elements of several genres and has been described by Kerrang! as "taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid". Their lyrics tend to focus on social commentary with a live show known for "clashing activism and good times". The band's influences include Bad Brains, Public Enemy, The Fugees, The Specials, The Streets, and The Clash.
