Forget the likes of texts and tomes and old photos
The things we learned won’t make a bit of difference
And all we know is a few brave souls
Will try to break the cycle
Falling into the same old ruts we found before
We always said we’d learn from our own past

Swimming against the currents of history
Make these mistakes with me
Can evolution last through modernity
Make these mistakes with me

Overlooking the past few centuries
(Centuries on and on intend to keep us)
Can you really say these are strides we’ve made?
That we have made

Swimming against the currents of history
Make these mistakes with me
Can evolution last through modernity
Make these mistakes without me

Don’t take my picture
Cause I don’t want my likeness recorded in your collective
In your collective history
