  • I'm no longer preaching to the converted
    That congregation has long ago deserted

    And we discovered was even more despair
    But we learned how to cope, we learnt now not to care

    And the sun will still keep rising
    Always deflecting, always disguising
    Was there ever another place
    Did we ever really exist?

    All we make is entertainment
    A sad indictment of what we're good at
    We're all part of the grand delusion

    We made so much and we let it all crumble
    To safeguard our rights to make us more human
    Oh this country is but an empty shell
    A clearing house for heaven, a clearing house for hell

    And the sun will still keep rising
    Always deflecting, always disguising
    Was there ever another place
    Did we ever really exist?

    All we make is entertainment
    It's so damn easy, and inescapable
    "We're so post-modern, We're so post-everything"

    All we make is entertainment
    An end to hope and civilization
    A simple way to seek perfection

    Please don't tell the nation of being exposed
    It only confirms what we already know
    Pointless jobs just lead to pointless lives
    Breaking up our bones, breaking up our minds Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
