about

I heard someone on the radio discussing supermassive black holes in
the centre of galaxies and I suddenly thought: my god yes, there really is a hole in the middle of everything. I know that a black 'hole' is in
fact the densest thing in the universe. But apart from being the complete opposite of what I really mean, it's the perfect metaphor.

lyrics

I look up at the stars
On this moonless night
Vega and Antares
A band of silver light

Dancing with Andromeda
In endless pirouette
Our arms reach out to hold her
And we may hold her yet

But her heart is cold
Its secrets still untold
Mass, charge and momentum: that’s all you get

Yes there’s a hole in the middle of everything
Of all the light that glistens in the sky – they can verify
There’s a hole in the middle of everything
But there's a loss of information, so don’t ask why

Give me your hand old friend, how do you do?
Or is that too polite?
Louis said it means ‘I love you’
And that much he got right

And maybe love can provide
For this emptiness inside
But let’s not take any chances – let’s get good and drunk tonight

'Cause there’s a hole in the middle of everything
But I don’t want to fill it with a lie – oh no not I
There’s a hole in the middle of everything
They say you can’t fill it with liquor, but let’s try
