  • Don't wanna take my country back
    I wanna take my country forward
    Don't wanna take my country back
    I wanna take my country forward

    Don't wanna take my country back
    Everyone's preaching to the choirs
    Words billow up and get trapped in trash fires
    Fists of fury, against one's neighbor
    Reeling around in the echo chamber

    Now look what we've done to ourselves
    We've really gone and fucked it this time
    Look what we've done to ourselves

    So get up get up and feel the rising tide
    I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
    Get up get up and feel the rising tide
    Get up get up (get up get up)

    There's anger stashed in the creases of your face
    That burning rage could gut a castle
    But you torched your neighbor
    And now your whole town is ablaze

    And everyone is seeing red
    Like the pyromaniacs in the a stronghold
    Sparking fury, against one's neighbor
    Twisting the truth with a blamethrower

    Now look what we've done to ourselves
    We've really gone and fucked it this time
    Look what we've done to ourselves

    So get up get up and feel the rising tide
    I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
    Get up, get up and feel the rising tide
    Get up, get up (get up get up)

    I don't wanna take my country back
    I wanna take my country forward
    I don't wanna take my country back
    I wanna take my country forward

    I feel like we're living on the edge
    And the cliffs are eroding
    I feel like we're living on the edge
    And the cliffs are eroding
    I feel like we're living on the edge
    And the cliffs are eroding
    I feel like we're living on the edge

    So get up get up and feel the rising tide
    I'm fed up fed up with all the cyanide
    Get up, get up and feel the rising tide
    Get up, get up (get up get up) Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER JOHN BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT WILLIAM ROLFE, ROUGHTON LESLIE PAUL REYNOLDS
