Anne Haigis – Nothing Ever Happens lyrics

Post office clerks put up signs saying "position closed"
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
And Janitors padlock the gates
For security guards to patrol
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
While the married ones turn on a chat show
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

Gentlemen time please you know we can't serve anymore
The traffic light change to stop when there's nothing to go
And by five o'clock everything's dead
And every third car is a cab
And ignorant people sleep in their beds
Like the doped white mice in the collage lab

And nothing ever happens
Nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care
Close circuit cameras in department stores
Shoot the same movie every day
And the stars of these films neither die or get killed
Just survive constant action replay

And nothing ever happens
Nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

And bill boarding advertise products that nobody needs
While angry from Manchester writes to complain about
All the repeats on TV
Computer terminals report some gains
For the value of copper and tin
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
For the price of a hospital wing

And nothing ever happens
Nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before

And nothing ever happens
Nothing happens at all
The'll burn down the synagogues at six o'clock
And we all go along like before
And we'll all be lonley tonight and lonely tomorrow
And we'll all be lonley tonight and lonely tomorrow
