We’re Getting There

Verse 1

Lead them to the place where you will chain them
Lure them with a cry of liberty
Freezing out the vulnerable to rescue those who’ve lost control
The can’t be missed if they’re not seen
Take their rights and stifle all dissension
Go outside and dig up your own grave
A day of this is one too long, 20 years they sang their song
Their captures luxuries are saved

 

Pre-Chorus

We never noticed when they left, passers by have failed the test
Many people’s lives are cast aside for blood and gold

Pre-Chorus

But we’re getting there, making up for past mistakes
We’re getting there, working through a world of hate
Still we torture and we beat, still we walk past on the street
Helpless people stricken off their feet, but we’re getting there

 

Verse 2

Pile the drugs to fade away the senses
Pull the chain on those who want to flee
Give em work and waive the pay, and you take their food away
Run you’ll never make it past the tree

Power tells us hate is fading round here
Now the need for fighting’s gone away
Blame us for austerity, hide away our chairty
In 2017 we’ve not a say

 

Pre-Chorus

We never noticed when they left, passers by have failed the test
Many people’s lives are cast aside for blood and gold

 

Chorus

But we’re getting there, making up for past mistakes
We’re getting there, working through a world of hate
Still we torture and we beat, still we walk past on the street
Helpless people stricken off their feet, but we’re getting there

 

Musical Interlude

 

Pre-Chorus

We never noticed when they left, passers by have failed the test
Many people’s lives are cast aside for blood and gold

 

Pre-Chorus

But we’re getting there, making up for past mistakes
We’re getting there, working through a world of hate
Still we torture and we beat, still we walk past on the street
Helpless people stricken off their feet, but we’re getting there
