  • Woe Woe, The King is Dead
    But Nobody ever thought to find his head
    A Revolution for the price of bread
    Cause everyone's working for the long weekend

    So Longer Days, In shorter years
    The lights go off and then the sun appears
    A hard road, well when you don't know
    When you don't know what you are anymore

    Cash prizes on a government loan
    One day your life becomes a rent to own
    Scratch and win at the end of the rope
    The lottery is just a tax on hope

    Longer days, In shorter years
    The lights come on and the moon appears
    The evening news plays tears for fears
    For the apocalypse that comes every year

    Cause we're living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days in the shorter years (oh yeah!)

    Woah woah, the cat came back
    And she's taking out all of the bureaucrats
    Cut down and cut the fat
    The fittest survive as well as diplomats

    Longer Days, In shorter years
    The lights go off and then the sun appears
    A hard road, when you don't know
    When you don't know what you are anymore

    Cause we're living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days, in the shorter years
    Living longer days in the shorter years (oh yeah!)


    Nobodies wrong in this world no more
    And no one's tired of being right
    You might as well just enjoy the night
    Cause we're living longer days, in the shorter years... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
