lyrics

The current state of play, dictates a downcast and sorry state.
But we won’t let it be, we’ll bring it back where we used to be.
I hope that this true, ambitious guidelines to ease the mood,
With these words in our ears, eliminating the greatest fears.

Continue pushing forth, we’ll show them all that we still have worth,
We’re small but we are proud, we’ll shout, we’ll sing and we’ll do it loud.

We build in crowds, not just for healings sake, this trade is tried and true.
Beware the tribe; all of its members say the wealth was lost today.

Battlelines formed in minds; yes we’ll bring it up again.
They will try planting mines, that’s when we’ll realize it’s a waste of time

We build in crowds, not just for healings sake, this trade is tried and true.
Beware the tribe; all of its members say the wealth was lost today.

These ascetic holes, vitriolic folds, they are taking hold, they are taking hold.
You can run it up, you can bring it back, penetrate the skin, sudden heart attack.
These electric lines weaving in my spine, I will rush around, I will waste my time.
He’s a boy I know she’s a girl I knew, I will save my change to get through to you
This is what I think of the state of play, this is what I think of the world today,
But the problem is, it’s not what I say.

Battlelines formed in minds; yes we’ll bring it up again.
They will try planting mines; yes we’ll bring it up again.
Battlelines formed in minds; yes we’ll bring it up again.
They will try planting mines; yes we’ll bring it up,
We’ll bring it up, we’ll bring it up, we’ll bring it up.

Our future is bright, we will continue pushing forth
Clench your fists and point them skywards.
Blue skies are in sight, on the horizon, pushing forth
Clench your fists and point them skywards.
