lyrics

When did we get to this
Living in a cardboard house on the street
There are no shoes on my feet

Out the window there is
Scum and smoke in the city air
Broken buildings everywhere

Well I see a lot of people, they're all around
walking, walking, walking down
Got to get to work
Got to get paid
Got to be the man that the devil made
Got to take the path that they did not choose
Can’t go wandering, there is too much to lose
Add up the numbers in this equation
And ask yourself are you living to the full
Are you benefitting from this whole fucking situation

But then chaos comes to town
With flood, storm and flame
And all those systems snapped like twigs
And there was no-one to blame
Financial institutions crumbled like ash in the wind
And all those modern supermarket families
They had forgotten how to live

When did you turn around and see it all
Play your songs to the street
Eat out of the dumpster
And grow your garden tall

Well I think its worth a thought every now and then
How would you handle things
If the world as you know it came to an end

Would you hold onto fire and burn your hands
Listen to the stories of a greedy man
Would you hold onto hate as a weapon and blame as an excuse

Would you take a step back and think for a while
Take a step back, think it all through
Think and smile
Its in your hands, its under your feet

Well I see more inspiration walking down the street
Than I do in the house of the elected seats
Tune out, get in tune, something’s coming for you
Tune out, get in tune, something’s coming for you

But then chaos comes to town
With flood, storm and flame
And all those systems snapped like twigs
And there was no-one to blame
Financial institutions crumbled like ash in the wind
And all those modern supermarket families
They’d forgotten how to live

Well its an honest fucking truth
You can see it everyday
There is power in your hands
Don’t let them take it away
Walk that path which seems best to you
We can break these chains
And get the message through
