lyrics

We Have Lost


It looks like we've lost
All we thought of as forever won
Now appears to be gone
And the sun only hardens the frost
Yes, it looks like we've lost
Just the thought someone from somewhere else
Counts as much as yourself
Now seems perfectly preposterous
Oh it looks like we're lost
Now if you were around in the 1980s
The kind who would shine at the school debates
It was obvious to see
If their kind ever got to get their way
Then oh what a world that would be
And where have you been?
After all hopes and dreams
It all turned out exactly as you had foreseen
It seems we have lost

Admit it we've lost
All the stuff we thought we'd put to bed
That didn't need to be said
Is now flying in shreds round our heads
Yes it's true we have lost
But if you cast your mind back to the 1990s
Remember the kind
Who were ever so pleased with themselves
You'd have known
That golden future of which they kept talking
Wouldn't be anyone's but their own
So what could you do
There was a new world to win
And you tried to fit in
But they had no room for you
Oh, you knew you had lost

Now everyone's torn
Even that boy over there
With the Hitler youth hair
That's not how he was born
Yes, he may look like he's lost
But just you wait till the 2020s
Ah, what's that coming round the bend?
Yes as much as it wasn't forever we'd won
After all's said and done
We will see that it won't be forever we've lost
Not forever lost
