Open your eyes and see The world I couldn't change for you Reach out your hand and take The world that will belong to you
We were on our way to a better day And the spirit was in us all But as time went by we fell by the wayside Maybe you'll be the last to fall
You are the only ones There is nobody left but you You are the chosen ones There is nobody else to choose
Back when I was young, my hope was strong But the time blew it all to hell If I thought I knew what was good for you I would have gone and done it for myself
Worlds of tomorrow Life without sorrow Take it because it's yours Sons of 1984
I can still see the great panorama of hate Being cleansed by our loving hands But the brothers broke stride, the sisters cried Now you have to start all over again

"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
