There's a shadow across the land There's a hatred and a hunger, and it's hard to understand How we fell so far from where we began There's a stumble now in our step There's blood in the flem, there's a lump in the breast There's a smell of sickness on our breath There's a dread deep down in our bones Something is finished, abandon your homes Strike out into the great unknown But there are no new continents to be found No new frontiers to cross, no gold in the ground Stay with the books, blessed ye be drowned Save what you can Behind us the old world in flames Lower the lifeboats, take us to her Steer the way There are stories now worth being told There are victories to grasp more valuable than gold And we will speak of to our children when we're gold There are baffles now, words being formed There are lessons to be learned and later to be told There are soldiers on the field who can't be [?] There's a clarity now in our view From the [?] we see [?] is old now is new [?] we know what we must do There is hope now in the wind And the millions who are marching demanding we be kind From the new lives the lifeboat might find Save what you can Behind us the old world in flames Lower the lifeboats, take us to her Steer the way Save what you can Lower the lifeboats, steer the way Find shore [?] the horizon through the waves Steer a clear coarse to a new world, to a new day Save what you can Lower the lifeboats, steer the way
