You won't touch us, 'cos we've been here too long
We've changed the rules so we can carry on
And all of this success has made us sleepy

While you're growing fat they make plans
Keep your teeth sharp and your knives in hands
While you're catching breath they break plans
Keep your teeth sharp or hold up your hands

We can't afford to slow down 'cos we're so far ahead
We've played our part now it's time to take a rest
And all of this success has made us sleepy

While you're growing fat they make plans
Keep your teeth sharp and your knives in hands
While you're catching breath they break plans
Keep your teeth sharp or hold up your hands

While you're growing fat they make plans
Keep your teeth sharp and your knives in hands
While you're catching breath they break plans
Keep your teeth sharp or hold up your hands

Wake up, make a start, make a start
Wake up, make a start, make a start
Wake up, make a start, make a start
Wake up, make a start, make a start

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the human race. Because we have become so advanced, we drop our guard and assume we are untouchable; "You won't touch us, 'cos we've been here too long" and "We can't afford to slow down 'cos we're so far ahead". The chorus is basically saying that if we don't stay sharp and alert we could fall. "While you're growing fat they make plans" is a metaphor to say while we're doing nothing, the downfall of the human race could be in progress. This could be from some natural disaster or whatever, that's what I think anyway. "Wake up, make a start" is warning us to stop assuming we are invincible and start being on the lookout.
