Just let it go
It doesn't matter
It's all sustainable
Just continue to grow
As we use everything obtainable

It's what you wanted
Not what we need
It's what you started
And now we bleed

To a means this is the end
Line up as we pick apart the wound we cannot mend
The structure is collapsing
Broken by the weight of endless demand

This is progress failing
This is hope draining away
This is excess derailing
No way to cope with what we're giving away

Just let it fall
It never mattered
It's all replaceable
Just continue this all
As we sink
Everything is usable

It's what you wanted
Not what we need
It's what you started
And now we bleed

To a means this is the end
Line up as we pick apart the wound we cannot mend
The structure is collapsing
Broken by the weight of endless demand

This is progress failing
This is hope draining away
This is excess derailing
No way to cope with what we're giving away

To a means this is the end
Line up as we pick apart the wound we cannot mend
The structure is collapsing
Broken by the weight of endless demand

This is progress failing
This is hope draining away
This is excess derailing
No way to cope with what we're giving away

To a means this is the end
Line up as we pick apart the wound we cannot mend
The structure is collapsing
Broken by the weight of endless demand

This is progress failing
This is hope draining away
This is excess derailing
No way to cope with what we're giving away

    General Comment This is one helluva song.Hard and pounding, laying out the bad news (good news?) with blunt force, shooting down the meaningless buzzwords that have been pounded into our thick skulls from day 1 (endless growth, limitless progress, blah blah blah), even as we deny and try to sink deeper into our media slumber & material shit free-for-all. Songs like this that point out the bleeding obvious make me giddy inside, a lil less alone, the kind of stuff id play in supermarkets and public spaces, not any of the easy listening, top 40 crap. Just 24/7, round-the-clock writing on the wall
