I just can't help believing
Though believing sees me cursed
For belief ignores the heathens
Day by day sigh 'even worse'
But for all we are receiving
There's an evens key to turn
You was the generation that bought more shoes and you get what you deserve

Winter sweeps the streets of evening,
This frequency's my universe
To reel a deep or meaning feeling 
In seas where schools of fools be first
But for all we are receiving
There's an evens key to turn
You was the generation that snorts fortunes and you get what you deserve

Yeah Yeah! (ooh baby) (8x)

But we're all receiving (4x)

Burberry Beamer Beakheads
Leaving Adidas sleek mystique reversed
Without a dream or scream between 'em
Believing time does reimburse

So for all we are receiving
There's an evens key to turn
You was the generation that bought more shoes and you get what you deserve

    General CommentGreat pop song. Obviously, it deals with consumerism, but I think it is about the entitlement and superficiality in modern society, where it is hard to believe in anything, because we are so caught up, like "schools of fools" with more superficial things.

    Kind of depressing message for a really upbeat song.
