Lyrics

Pictures of dying going nationwide
While they're cold and hungry on the streets outside
Broken promises and broken homes
And they're all queuing up for the government loan

Pledging your millions off a TV screen
While the shit on your doorstep remains unseen
Who said charity begins at home?
And you're all holding out for the government loan

And while your final trace of faith is being crucified
And while your only means of escaping fear is suicide

(Give us hope) (Give us hope)
You arrive alone and you die alone
(Give us hope) (Give us hope)
You arrive alone and you die alone. Hey

You buy their trust so you trust their war
That's what they're paid to lead the Country for
A flag and a pension and a marble stone
Supplied and provided by the government loan

And while your final trace of faith is being crucified
And while your only means of escaping fear is suicide

(Give us hope) (Give us hope)
You arrive alone and you die alone
(Give us hope) (Give us hope)
You arrive alone and you die alone. Hey

Pill dependence under private health
While the rest of the world are medicating themselves
The only guarantee is when we open our eyes
This revolution will be televised

I'm standing at the edge of the world
There's chaos in the city as the capitol burns
I'm calling, calling

I'm standing at the gates of the west
Where the doors open wide with American Express and
I'm calling, calling

I'm standing in the ghost of the town
Looking up in the hope someone's looking back down and
I'm calling, calling

I'm standing with my back to the wall
And the signs in my head says I'll be dead before I’m gonna fall
I’m calling, calling

I'm standing at the edge of the world
There's chaos in the city as the capital burns
I'm calling, calling

I'm standing at the gates of the west
Where the doors open wide for the fashionably dressed and
I'm calling, calling

I'm standing here looking at you
And you're looking back at me like there's something I can do and
I'm calling, calling
