This is the last and dying gasp of the bourgeoisie
We are the cold and bitter souls of austerity
We're all thirsting for some difference
While drowning in our opulence
We're dying to survive eternally

Are you still stuck inside your shoes?
Are you still blinded by the truth?
Are you so sick of hearing lies?
Are you so sick of being used?

Are we, are we, are we out of time?
Are we, are we, ignoring the signs
That we're on a sinking ship and wasting time
We set fire tonight
We set fire tonight

Is this the gaslight or the flag of the new gentry?
And what will we risk to fix the disparity?
While we focus on the grand parade
The media fix social charade
We're all watching for the signs of anarchy

Are you still swindled by the ruse?
That there's just nothing we can do?
But can you swallow all the lies?
Aren't you so sick of the abuse?

Are we, are we, are we out of time?
Are we, are we, ignoring the signs
That we're on a sinking ship and wasting time
We set fire tonight
We set fire tonight

We are the cold and bitter souls of the endless night
The union jack in black ski mask prep for the fight
We are the face of your sworn enemy
The object of your apathy
We're backed against the wall but we survive

Are you still praying by yourself?
In your suburban prison cell
The barons bank that you comply
Pick up a rock and give 'em hell

Are we, are we, are we out of time?
Are we, are we, ignoring the signs?
Are we, are we, are we out of time?
Are we, are we, ignoring the signs?
