Supra Fiery Cannonballs

Supra Fiery Cannonballs - No Noise At All 

Just imagine what it’s like, when it’s quiet
No noise at all
It doesn’t sound right, when there’s silence
No noise at all.

A car can only look good
If it sounds right
Not something just to see
Looks are not enough
Not something to listen too
Like Formula E.

But you said you'd make it better
With a twin carburettor
You said you’d make it sing
Now it sounds just like an Escort
Mexico
A '70s thing
 
Did you hear about the man
Who built a wooden car with wooden doors
Wooden wheels, wooden engine?
It wouldn’t go.

GTR SOLO

Is there power in the air?
The man don’t care
He tells us sh*t.

There’s a Chinese car
Goes for free everywhere
I’ve seen it.
(I think it was on BuzzFeed)
  
A gulf in the science in this is big
As wide as an ocean

Windmill on the front
Fan on the back
Perpetual motion.

Imagine what it’s like, when it’s quiet
No noise at all
It doesn’t sound right, when there’s silence
No noise at all (No noise at all)

I went to hear practice
At Silverstone
It couldn'’t be worse (No noise at all)
 No hysteria
No drama
The cursed silence of the KERS

No noise at all.
