every day
I don't know
any more
than the day before
every year
I don't grow
I'm still as small
as the year before

(fail to learn, learn to fail)
listen children,
your parents let you down
your teachers let you down
the government lets you drown

switch your bloody phone off
hands away from your face
your bed's in disarray

every week
I consume
too much bad news
too much american food

(fail to learn, learn to fail)
listen children,
your parents let you down
your teachers let you down
the government lets you drown

switch your bloody phone off
hands away from your face
pull your curtains open
your bed's in disarray
and every city street
is an open vein
every country lane
is an open vein
is an open vein

every night
matt can't sleep
his mind ignores
his body's urgent call
