lyrics

Some called it reckless – They warned of consequences
Hard wired for helpless – Trapped by their own defences
Lets blame those ugly children
Wise words designed to make no sound at all

Where went those promises?
Who stole that book of dreams to come?
So flatline your senses now and turn
Before all the engines burn it all away.

The harder they come, the big and the tall
The deeper the bed to cushion their fall
2-3-4 Deep breath
United we stand, divided we fall
See the people cripple and crawl
2-3-4 Deep breath
Still you’ll get no satisfaction

We hide in smug superior
Then we light up the fires to fuel the cruel
Shame for the laissez-faire neglect
One more cog in a wheel of incompetence (to shield your eyes)

The harder they come, the big and the tall
The deeper the bed to cushion their fall
2-3-4 Deep breath
United we stand, divided we fall
See the people cripple and crawl
2-3-4 Deep breath
And I can’t get no satisfaction

And all they see glitter is gold for the fools
Like slaves to their own super-cool

The game is done, the wrong side won
There is no change of heart to come
No last reprise, no guarantees
You lost your voice when you disagreed
And all the rhetoric, that got you in a spin
Will take away the only pot you had to piss in
And when the tables turn, as far as you’re concerned
You’ll be the next in a line of weak they come to burn

All we listen for are bells to ring the changes
All we’re wishing for are better days to come
All we listen for are bells to ring the changes
All we’re wishing for are better days to come
All we listen for are bells to ring the changes
All we’re wishing for are better days to come
All we listen for are bells to ring the changes
All we’re wishing for are better days to come – come – come – come – come - come
