Well gather around you boys now and listen to the man 
He says we've fought evaded but united we will stand 
We'll sacrifice the older ones living in the past 
We'll burn up their religions and we'll all be free at last 
We'll put a hat upon his head and then we'll call him God 

And then we'll share our health in him like peas do in a pod 
This is the story of a man with his future in his head 
But no-one ever listens to him when he's dead 
We're all getting older 
The light is on and bolder 
We're all getting older 

We'll follow him throughout the land obeying his command 
We'll dance a sort of hatred that we think we understand 
The children came a-running from their houses of decay 
And laid the trust upon a fool who found a better way 
He preach the words of wisdom with his hands and with his mouth 

Then everyone believed him and then he believed himself 
This is the story of a man with his future in his head 
But no-one ever listens to him when he's dead 
We're all getting older 
The light is on and bolder 

We're all getting older 
Decay 

(Spoken voice in background of Neville Chamberlain) 
 "This morning I had another talk with the German 
 Chancellor Herr Hitler. 
 Here is the paper which bears his name upon it 
 as well as mine. We regard the agreement signed 
 last night as symbolic of the desire of our two 
 peoples never to go to war with one another again." )

We're all getting older 
The light is on and bolder 
We're all getting older 
Decay 
The year had come and gone and everyone began to see 

Why did we follow such a fool in such a mindless way? 
Let's turn our hatred to this man - we know he's just a fraud 
We crucify him with the rest and find another God 
How many times have you heard someone's coming here to say 
That from your hell on earth that you will love until your grave 

This is the story of a man with nothing in his head 
And no-one's going to listen to you when you're dead 
We're all getting older 
The light is on and bolder 

We're all getting older 
We're all getting older 
We're all getting older 
We're all getting older 
We're all getting older 
We're all getting older 
We're all getting older
