There Are Too Many of Us
by Blur

Album: The Magic Whip (2015)
  • There are too many of us
    That's plain to see
    We all believe in praying
    For our immortality

    We pose this question to our children
    That calls them all to stray
    And live in tiny houses
    Of the same mistakes we make

    'Cause there are too many of us
    In tiny houses here and there
    Passing out somewhere
    But you won't care

    There are too many of us
    That's plain to see
    And we all believe in praying
    For our immortality

    For a moment I was dislocated
    By terror on the loop elsewhere
    Flashing lights advocate it
    On the big screens everywhere

    'Cause there are too many of us
    In tiny houses here and there
    Just passing out somewhere
    But you won't care

    There are too many of us
    In tiny houses here and there
    All looking through the windows
    On everything we share

    We pose this question to our children
    It leads them out to stray
    And live in tiny houses
    Of the same mistakes we make

    'Cause there are too many of us
    That's plain to see
    All living in tiny houses
    Of our immortality Writer/s: Graham Leslie Coxon, David Rowntree, Damon Albarn, Alexander James Steven
