When the lights go out...
It’s coming. It’s here.
How you gonna feel when the lines go dead and your Third World life stretches out ahead
There’s only so much bio-fuel to burn and maybe we’ve already used it
There’s only so much Planet Earth can take and we’ve well and truly abused it
There was always plenty of wealth to go round but never in the hands of the greedy few who possess it
Only enough stuff left for 2 billion 6 billion plus gonna be around to contest it
Bullshit words and empty deeds feed the doubt and plant the seed
New demand gives way to new war targeting resources where our enemies are
Feed you till you’re fit to burst make you hunger make you thirst
Expectation is the key keeps you thinking that you live free
Faced with recession faced with loss it’s easier to ignore the cost
More tacit consent more Third World horror keeps you feeling safe tomorrow
But soon enough when the wind turns cold you’ll have to face the lie you’ve been told
You’ll fuck your neighbours and fuck your friends and this is where your humanity ends
