lyrics

Time to raise a glass to our so called friends in higher places.
Your demands are making a mockery of the working people in their faces.

I don’t aim to understand them, I don’t aim to reprimand them – 
I can’t see the reasoning behind the things they say, but I’m glad I’m not like them.

What do they know of the history that you’ve sold,
Are they even aware that you are gifted?
Watching how things flow, you’re the only one who grows,
But you’re dragging your heals through the sands they sifted.

Savour what you have now, before we die – there’s a craving inside me to tell you I love you.
Ask me why I do the things I tend to do to you – I can’t explain it, I can’t explain.

I don’t aim to understand them, I don’t aim to reprimand them – 
I can’t see the reasoning behind the things they say but I’m glad I’m not like them.

What do they know of the history that you’ve sold,
Are they even aware that you are gifted?
Watching how things flow, you’re the only one who grows,
But you’re dragging your heals through the sands they sifted.

There are ways to die and there are ways to win this,
But we have to bide our time, hide within our minds.
As I spoke to my sister, who I’ve never seen,
I pierced the blister that will never ever bleed.
Nothing in this world is real, only the pain that I feel.
This is my last rehearsal, I don’t even to think to care,
So don’t look for me, don’t look for me...
There’s no dry run – the real is done.

What do they know of the history that you’ve sold,
Are they even aware that you are gifted?
Watching how things flow, you’re the only one who grows,
But you’re dragging your heals through the sands they sifted.
There’s no dry run – the real is done.
