    Default London to Shanghai or London to Tokyo by Asian Dub Foundation

    Hey!

    London to Shanghai and London to Tokyo, two versions of the same song, with basically the same lyrics.
    These lyrics seem impossible to find around and I'll be grateful if anyone has that.

    Trying to transcribe it; still quite some blanks, but it's a start.

    Gonna keep my hopes up high,
    Gotta keep my third eye wide
    When you ride the skyline from London to Shanghai


    And the cloudscape way too light
    A million megawatts bright
    Watch high-speed life arrive from london to shanghai


    Flying ??? restaurants ??? local can be
    look ??? was the moon
    Everyday i send a text back to the center of the old world
    tell 'em I won't be back anytime


    soon - send a text back to the old world
    soon - won't be back anytime soon


    I never dreamt the world would be like this
    Never thought I'd ever fly
    A great leap forward that got left behind
    In another world, in another mind
    Y'all got style, and the new gods arise


    I'm way past endtime
    I'm living in realtime
    I don't get much sleeptime
    from london to shanghai

    And I've caught them ready to fly
    I'm cutting every tie
    I'm starting a brand new life
    All demons say goodbye


    Looking over the wasteland i'm flying straight through
    I'm leaving although where would I wanna be ?
    And I'm going to a place where a 100 flowers bloom
    Straight to the heart of this century


    century – I'm going to the place where a 100 flowers bloom
    centruy – oh


    and I'm back to see the world like this
    as People's square comes into view
    the London eye blinks at the TV-tower
    I'm in the right place
    at the right time
    won't change your pace
    I'm along for the ride


    ??? the earth
    ??? ending
    ??? right behind me now

    its where I start, where it might end
    a track ???
    the new world is live


    Gonna keep my hopes up high
    gonna keep my third eye wide
    when you ride the skyline from london to shanghai

    A flying saurcer restaurant, my local Café
    While I look at this they flight towards the moon
    Everyday I send a text back to the center of the old world
    Tell 'em I won't be back anytime

    Soon - Send a text back to the old world
    Soon - Won't be back anytime soon

    And I couldn't wait to fly
    I'm cutting every tie
    I'm starting a brand new life
    All divas say goodbye

    Look them over the wasteland I'm flying straight through
    All living in a new world I don't wanna be
    And I'm going to a place where a 100 flowers bloom
    Straight to the heart of this century

    Century – I'm going to the place where a 100 flowers bloom
    Centruy – oh

    And I'm back to see the world like this
    As People's square comes into view
    The London eye blinks at the TV-tower
    I'm in the right place
    at the right time
    What a changing pace
    I'm along for the ride

    Attacks on London by an indian
    I swam the red sea and there
    There's a million right behind me now
    It's where it starts, where it might end
    Let's get revives where you worth as life

    Gonna keep my hopes up high
    Gonna keep my third eye wide
    when you ride the skyline from london to shanghai
