Where Is The Big Red 'Do Not Press' Button? No, Not That One...

Half the kids who you grew up with, were pushing prams by the time that they were just sixteen.
If love is a drug then where is the cure?
For the girl who used to talk to you about her dream.
And all the boys with all their toys, couldn't see the signs as we scortched out eyes with nicotine.
And the grown ups said, listen to your heads-
But our hearts were crying out for heroes on T.V. screens.
Now this song is about you.
Now this song is about...
Changes in your mind-
Changes in your life, changes in the times and the reason you can't sleep at night.
And the reason you gave up the fight.
Half the kids that aren't pushing prams are pushing pills to boys and girls that are half their age.
And the pubs and clubs are full of drunks, that dont remember the day the were born or even remember their names.
An old man sings a tune but hes drowned out by a fight next to a fruit machine.
And all of this, our hearts our nation, a total lack of civilization-
Will it ever be the same?
- Enemy / This Song
