    Do we call this trying?
    We're hopeless
    Forget the denying
    Our souls are corrupt
    Our minds are messed up
    Our consciences bankrupt
    Oh, we're fucked

    What are we thinking?
    It's shameful
    Our standards are sinking
    We're barely hanging on
    Our spirit has gone
    And once where it shone
    I hear a lonesome song

    How are we coping?
    It's futile
    To even start hoping
    That justice will prevail
    That truth will tip the scales
    Our dignity has sailed
    Oh, we've failed Writer/s: Martin Gore
