lyrics

I remember years gone by
And a sun in a clear blue sky.
Children playing on the silver sands
Others scheming in a far off land.
We’ve relinquished all those facts and figures
Lost in mists of time;
The cornucopia overflowed
With greed from when you played your role.

Realised that time had gone
Strolling on the beach, all alone.
Held a gun against my head,
But I chose to live the lie instead.
Is there anything that helps us
As we contemplate the end
The tears may start to flow
But who the hell will care, my friend?

Do recollections of the past make sense?
Forgetting all we’ve taught and all we’ve learned.
Hostile mind games creep into our lives tonight
Suppose I’ll just wake up and see a brave new world
Can I just say that you’ll be there at the end?

Will the people we were taught to hate
Forgive what you mean to do now?
As the consequence dictate
Where you stood on your moral high ground.
On the beach where once the children played
There’s lifeless shoes today.
The enemy of our state
Is still around to shoot you down.

Welcome to the dawning of a new today,
Welcome to a world that’s nothing like you say.
A stranger walks amongst us on the shore today
A new god on the sand where now his children play.
But a new god to the world who looks away…now.
