  • They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    The lucky don't care at all
    No chance for fate
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth

    I'm hungry for some unrest
    I wanna push it beyond a peaceful protest
    I wanna speak in a language that they'll understand

    Dedication to a new age
    Is this the end of destruction and rampage?
    Another chance to erase and then repeat it again

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean
    Ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    The lucky don't care at all
    No chance for fate (hey, hey, hey)
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth

    No religion or mind virus
    Is there a hope that the facts would ever find us?
    Just make sure that you are looking out for number one

    And I'm hungry for some unrest
    Well, let's push it beyond a peaceful protest
    I wanna speak in a language that you will understand

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean
    Ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us crawl
    The lucky don't share at all
    No hope for fate (hey, hey, hey)
    It's a random chance selection
    I want the truth

    Try to ride out the storm
    Whilst they'll make you believe
    They are the special ones
    (We have not been chosen)

    We trust
    This is enough
    You won't be the first
    And you know that you won't be the last

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean
    Ocean, ocean, ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    And the lucky, they don't care at all
    No chance for fate (hey, hey, hey)
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth, I want the truth
    And I want the truth, I want the truth Writer/s: Matt Bellamy
