So we gathered in a big heap all that we own
Couldn’t work out what to keep and what to throw
If it doesn’t mean the world then it has to go
We need the money
Our parents didn’t wait for this long
to have big ideas and buy up big homes
But our young blood could never be so bold

IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING
IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING UP

I said “if only we could set fire
to all that’s collected here
it’s used and cheap
it’s bleak but from year to year
it’s gathering dust – nothing connects anymore”
And you said “maybe we should hide out
where the bailiffs won’t find us
in cliffs and caves with only what’s beside us
It’s desperate and it’s bleak
but it will keep us close”
I think that we should start saving

IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING
IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING UP

No assets are kept as the debt unfolds
I cannot help but feel like we’re at fault
The depth of our debt is deeper than love
The measure of which is stronger than us

IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING
IF WE’RE SERIOUS THEN WE SHOULD START SAVING UP

We should start saving
We should start saving
