System...

Album: A Flash Flood Of Colour (2012)
  • There was a house in a field on the side of a cliff
    And the waves crashing below were just said to be a myth
    So they ignore the warnings from the ships in the docks
    Now the house on the cliff is the wreckage on the rocks

    There was a house in a field on the side of a cliff
    And the waves crashing below were just said to be a myth
    So they ignore the warnings from the ships in the docks
    Now the house on the cliff is the wreckage on the rocks

    Nothing can fix the building's flawed foundation
    The scaffolding and stalks were the laws and legislation
    This house was doomed, but they didn't care
    They'd invested in the system that was beyond repair

    When I was little
    I dressed up as an astronaut, and explored outer-space
    I dressed up as a superhero, and ran about the place
    I dressed up as a fireman, and rescued those in need
    I dressed up as a doctor, and cured every disease

    It was crystal clear to me back then that the only problems that I could face
    Would be the same problems that affect us all
    But of course this sense of common existence was sucked out of me in an instance
    As if from birth I could walk but I was forced to crawl

    So this an exciting time, to be alive
    Our generation's gotta fight, to survive
    It's in your hands now, there's no time
    Our future, our future Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
