"Millennium" as written by Robert Peter Williams, John Barry, Leslie Bricusse and Guy Chambers....
we've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying its not too late
millennium

some say that we are players
some say that we are pawns
but we've been making money since the day that we were born
then slow down before we fall down

we've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying its not too late
cause we know we're falling from grace
millennium

live for liposuction
and detox for your rent
overdose at Christmas
and give it up for lent
my friends are all so cynical
refuse to keep the faith
we all enjoy the madness cause we know we're gonna to fade away

we've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
cause we know we're falling from grace
millennium

come and have a go if you think you are hard enough [Repeat: x2]

millennium [Repeat: x2]

we've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
cause we know we're falling from grace
millennium

and when we come we always come to late
i often think that we were born to hate
get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes (X2)

we've got stars directing our fate
(millennium)and we're praying its not too late
(millennium) cause we know we're falling from grace

millennium

    General CommentIt's very stupid of you to make fun of people who believe in God or say that it doesn't have any relation to this song. The whole of Robbie William's songs are somehow connected with God and this site is about the song meanings, not a place to say if you like something or not.

    General Commenthey, i came to this site looking to see other's opinion of what this song means, but i see that only a typo was corrected lol. it makes me think that people dont have enough faith in god, or that not enough people believe in god. i'm gonna have to hear someone else's opinion, because no matter how many times i hear it, i hear that same thing.

    General Commentangel face darling, i have no idea what you are going on about, everyone can have their own opinion, that is what this whole site is about.

    i think it is about having heaps of money and loving material things, but then realising that you don't HAVE to have that sort of stuff....or he just might have been stoned when he rote it! :D

    General CommentMaybe this song had something to do with A.) Superficial, materialistic people with way too much money on their hands like Vixy said or B.) Maybe it's about America. Whenever I hear it I can't help but think he was taking a stab at us. If you listen to it with that in mind it kind of makes sense. Who knows? It's a good song.

    General CommentLive a life of solitude, till we find ourselves a partner. I can definitely relate to that. I wonder if the song applies to nations of people, or just, individual people. I get the feeling it\'s a plea, that we\'re not meant to hate, so please, before it\'s too late, stop. Oh, who knows...

    General Commentits about society and how everything has gone 'mad'. Money controls everything, people are ruled by dates, everyone has their essentially 'pointless' routines, rushing around which are repeated day by day. the song goes that one can overcome this by finding a partner and slowing down. i guess the real message is similar to that of The Beatles - I'm only sleeping which goes:

    Everybody seems to think I'm lazy,
    I dont mind,
    I think they're crazy,
    Running everywhere at such a speed,
    'til they find there's no need.
