lyrics

COLLAPSING

Treading water's getting harder every day.
Keeping life and soul together.
Rape and slaughter just don't want to go away.
And what about this weather?
The great big suits that be are whistling in the dark.
They don't know what the fuck they're doing.
Stuck behind side impact bars with nowhere left to park.
Gridlocked on the road to ruin.

Life and liberty,
faith, democracy,
watch it all collapsing around you.
Failure and success,
health and happiness,
watch it all collapsing around you.

Itchy trigger fingered children on the streets.
Greed to powerful to mention.
Immune deficiency and nothing left to eat.
Another miracle invention.
Someone's selling you life everywhere you look.
Make a decision make it snappy.
Compact discs can burn almost as well as books.
We were never poor but happy.

Will we make it now?
who cares anyhow?
have you got somewhere else to go?
looks like the future's clear,
what's the odds on twenty years?
