  • Come

    If our own lives aren't directly affected
    Then it don't need to be corrected
    Our fucking gift is our ignorance
    Yeah, we're really serious

    As they're paying for deliverance
    We shut ourselves from the outcries
    We blinker ourselves from the eyesores
    'Cause we know we've got greatness within us

    We have greatness within us
    Innovative, giving, determined
    It's time for the best in us to come out

    And you can find imbalance
    You can destroy imbalance
    And you can change your values
    Step up today

    Yes, solid

    Now let me get one thing straight, you know what?
    Sometimes I do wish apples were our currency
    So your hoarded millions would rot in their vaults
    And that'd teach you to lay off the assault
    That you're barraging on the lands of the poor

    And I know we've all got enough problems of our own
    But, but they're not show stoppers sitting on our throne in a home
    Heated by a life unknown to the exploited
    And it's so frustrating, the fucking state we're in

    If our own lives aren't directly affected
    Then it don't need to be corrected
    Our fucking gift is our ignorance
    Yeah, we're really serious

    As they're paying for deliverance
    We shut ourselves from the outcries
    We blinker ourselves from the eyesores

    And you can find imbalance
    You can destroy imbalance
    And you can change your values
    Step up today

    And you can find imbalance
    You can destroy imbalance
    And you can change your values
    Step up today

    Why is it that so many companies
    Don't deserve us and can't get rid of us?
    British Empire built free trade
    Opportunistic, pushing Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
