Lyrics

We wake from sleep like we were coming up for air
The nightmares that linger lead us to despair
In our youth we worried about monsters or guns
Now it was job loss or the death of a loved one

Where do we go from here?
The lines we crossed just weren't very clear
This change from past to present
Left to lament on where the time went

Austerity's taken control of our moral compass
Can't hear the poor over the clink of a wine glass
We retweet a good cause and think that we've won
Yet the wife still can't get paid as much as the husband

Where do we go from here?
The lines we crossed just weren't very clear
The change from past to present
Left to lament on where the time went

Medical expense – the future tense
Chemical defence – the future tense
Paris, Orlando, Brussels or Baghdad
The future's tense
The future tense
