"The Day After the Revolution [CD Version/Long Outro]" as written by Jarvis Branson Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Stephen Patrick Mackey and Mark Andrew Webber....
The dust has settled
Replace the bulbs in all the lights
I guess I'll get no sleep tonight
A revolution happened

Oh, sorry, you haven't heard?
We are the children of the new world
If you're quiet you can watch if you like
They say the future's beginning tonight
Whole empires will crumble, civilizations will fall

Lie on the bed, hear the sound of it all
No anger, no guilt and no sorrow
It sounds unlikely, I know, but tomorrow
You will wake up to find that your whole life has changed
Although nothing looks different, a revolution took place

I love the way you do it
I love the way you put them on
You know the answers but you get it wrong
Just to confuse things

Why did it seem so difficult to realise a simple truth?
The revolution begins and ends with you
Now all the breakdowns and nightmares look small
Now we decided not to die after all

'Cause the meek shall inherit absolutely nothing at all
If you stopped being so feeble you could have so much more
The answer was here all the time, you see
Just how I missed it is a mystery to me
I have waited and waited for this day to arrive
The revolution was televised
Now it's over, bye bye
It's over, bye bye
It's over, bye bye

Yeah, we made it
Just by the skin of our teeth
Perfection is over
Sheffield is over
The Fear is over
Guilt is over (please leave the building quietly)

Bergerac is over
The hangover is over, men are over, women are over
Cholesterol is over
Tapers are over
Bergman is over, irony is over
Bye-bye
