"Shiny Things" as written by Simon Aurell, Catherine Genevieve Mary Lucas, Justin Finch, Amos Akbar Memon and Leon Eric Beckenham....
Let's not worry about images
Let's not worry about mind control
Let's stop talking about prisoners
Up against an invisible wall
Let's not feel anything at all
Keep it inside your chest all night

Let's not worry about going extinct
We'll be preserved on a shelf somewhere
Give us mirrors for company
And lock all the windows and doors when you leave

It's as if nothing happened, as if it was enough
Think we rolled over gladly, thinking of shiny things
We wasted a lot to get there, burnt all the bridges home
The last of the pterodactyls has headed out for the seas

Build us a new perpetuity
Tell us we've nothing to fear from ourselves
Now that we're painted so colourfully
We'll be replaced by someone somewhere soon

It's as if nothing happened, as if it was enough
Think we rolled over gladly, thinking of shiny things
We wasted a lot to get there, burnt all the bridges home
The last of the pterodactyls has headed out for the seas
