lyrics

Let’s pick things up, with a bit of a warning
This song contains some images that you might find disturbing
And if you’re feeling sensitive, please look away now,
You can turn back soon when the noise has stopped
And the music has run out

Slow down, slow down,
Take a deep breath and look around
Slow down, slow down
Take a deep breath and stand up, and stand your ground

We might be lions but we’re still living in cages
You might as well paint the bars straight onto our faces
Fat on a diet of bad TV and Sunday’s sport back pages
It’s sad to say but it’s plain to see that
We’re no longer dangerous

Slow down, slow down,
Take a deep breath and look around
Slow down, slow down
Take a deep breath and stand up, and stand your ground

Is the life that we’re living in, worth the price that we’re paying out?
I lock myself inside at night
Where it all looks better under sodium light
And the centre of this city’s like a Wild West bar fight
Sleeping under bridges and dying of frostbite
How can you be so out of touch
How can you just miss out on this much?

Are these the best minds of our generation?
I pray that they're not or else we've all got a real problem
We haven't come far in 100 years
Dead from the ground up, out of ideas
Everyone's talking and no-one gets heard at all

Slow down, slow down,
Take a deep breath and look around
Slow down, slow down
Take a deep breath and stand up, and stand your ground
