lyrics

Take heed, take heed, of the warnings gone by
Our brothers and sisters will all be defined
By these tattered remains that we leave behind
At the rate were going, destroying mankind

Take heed, take heed, for the battle cry
Our leaders are lying before our own eyes
What tattered remains will we leave behind
At the rate were going, blind leading the blind

Take heed, take heed, it's a lonely fall
Our children may suffer after us all
With these tattered remains we leave behind
At the rate were going with senseless minds

Have a laugh, have a drink
It's only the brink that were treading on
What on earth makes us think
This land is here to starve under our feet?

But take heed, take heed, for we must try
To turn round the tides and live different lives
Our children will use what we leave behind
And there ain't a notion quite like hindsight
