"State of the Nation [Single Remix]" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
You can walk, or you can run
You don't have to be someone
I went on a summer cruise
Upon an ocean born to lose
My brother said that he was dead
I saw his face and shook my head
Can you see where we can't be
We're losing our blood in the sea
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
Yes, it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
Oh, the state of the nation (state on the nation)
Is causing deprivation
Oh, the state of the nation (state of the nation)
Is causing deprivation

From my home I traveled far
I drove in my stolen car
When it broke down, I kissed the ground
'Cause I don't kiss when you're around
I don't find that I have been
The portrait of an only son
If that's the case, then who could tell
Where my story had begun?
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
Yes, it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
It's the state of the nation (state on the nation)
That's causing deprivation
Oh, it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's causing deprivation

State of the nation (state of the station)
State of the nation (state of the station)
State of the nation (state of the station)
State of the nation (state of the station)
Even now, I'm all alone
Behind a wall that's made of stone
I think about where we have been
And all the sights that could be seen
I know it all could be worthwhile
If only I could force a smile
Now we turn our backs to the sea
The shame of a nation we'll never be
'Cause it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
Yes, it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
That's holding our salvation
It's the state of the nation (state on the nation)
It's causing deprivation
Oh, yes it's the state of the nation (state of the nation)
It's causing deprivation
