lyrics

Trying to find some sort of meaning
Behind the sorrow that's left
What we don't realise
Is that peace has no end

An old tortured poet
or an addict with a gun
We make them beautiful for the rest of the world
Life is hard to picture
Because nobody has a clue

And now I know it's all a joke
A failed romance, an awkward hope
We cling on yet our needs aren't met

Contentment is not a virtue
Contentment is fake
Building barriers to islands
Leaving them, it's too late
Customs, bullets and wire
A mad world under fire
We are fighting each other
and the politicians win
The sun slips through my fingers
So weightlessly I sigh

And the fish are drowning
And the fish are drowning

And now I know it's all a joke
A failed romance, an awkward hope
We cling on yet our needs aren't met
