The man is on the TV, on the papers, on the radio
Telling me that things are fine, well is world ain't the same as mine
Everyone you know and love is on the unemployment line
It's a price worth paying
Do you think that we would take their place?
(Keep Papering The Cracks)

Too scared to venture out into a world that they once fought to free
The old folks lock themselves away, afraid to step outside the door
Can't let the kids out of your sight, ain't safe to walk the streets at night
Can't be the things you want to be and things ain't what they ought to be
(Keep Papering The Cracks)

We trusted you, you drank the wine

You've got to make a stand, can't keep washing your hands
But you ain't got a plan. Just keep Papering The Cracks
Champagne serenade, you dance and say we've got it made
You're singing us a Looney Tune, just keep Papering The Cracks

What you do, what you say, you tell us there's no better way
Move in a little closer then you hit us with a sucker punch
Fighting wars that can't be won, screaming wars, champagne l'amour
We're trampled in the dust and our dreams have all been turned to rust
(Keep Papering The Cracks)

Can't stop the world, you can't get off, acid rain and acid tongues
Polluted air, polluted minds, no-one cares and that's the crime
Who's the hero? Who's the villain? Who the hell are you and I?
It ain't too late, we gotta keep the faith
(Keep Papering The Cracks)

We trusted you, you drank the wine

You've got to make a stand, can't keep washing your hands
But you ain't got a plan. Just keep Papering The Cracks
Champagne serenade, you dance and say we've got it made
You're singing us a Looney Tune, just keep Papering The Cracks
