We can make your world brighter at the flick of a switch We can give you solutions and they're making us rich If you want it we can build it If we build it you can use it When you use it you will break it When you break it we can build it all over again We've got all the great thinkers, all the cash that we need We care less of the hungry when there's lifestyles to feed If you want it we can build it If we build it you can use it When you use it you will break it When you break it we can build it all over again Build Break Repeat Technology Build Break Repeat Technology Build Break Repeat Technology Build Break Repeat Technology...

Read all about it, I'm in the news Read all about it, how about you Read all about it, I'm in the news Read all about it, the headline news We're a nation raised on riffs, repeated bars of four If you really want to know the world you gotta pay a little more Attention to the spaces that lie in between the lines Unspoken truths, hidden agendas, signposts of our time Read all about it, I'm in the news Read all about it, how about you Read all about it, I'm in the news Read all about it, the headline news Take a little time to see what's really going down Don't waste your time on Candy Crush and sharing memes around Make sure to vote the wrongs out and vote the right ones in And realise that right is wrong, the left will always win

I'm old enough to see the signs What's now is yours used to be mine You've got my house and all the rest So won't you grant me one request? Take good care of my baby Take good care of my girl Take good care of her, take good care of her Take good care of my baby, take good care I'm sure you treat her fine enough If you're in love then you're in love I guess she wants you more than me That's what she said, do you believe? Take good care of your baby Take good care of your girl Take good care of her, take good care of her Take good care of your baby, 'cause I'm watching her....

about

Lead single from the forthcoming Ballard album.

Build Break Repeat: Things are made to be broken these days: we demand it; industry builds it; we break it; industry builds us another.

Headline News: A noisy romp, inspired by a Chuck D comment about a nation raised to recognise riffs, soundbites and not look any deeper than that. The song is hardly deep, it's another riff-based R&B song filled with cheap slogans.

Take Good Care: Challenged to write and record an Everly Brothers-inspired song in a couple of hours. I met the challenge.
