lyrics

We used to be settlers waging war
On these Eastern winters
We used to be carpenters
Raising our our homes from the timbers
We used to monuments to the ones we loved
Now the tallest things are skyscrapers

But what changed?
Why have we become so afraid?

So file into your people carriers and
Move small distances across the Earth
These machines were made for adventure
Where will you take them

Well you’ll drive your car to work
But the freeway’s busy, take the train
Now the railway stations contain
No adventurers, just business travellers
And the shapes we make
Are quickly changin into circles
You’re always late
Time’s chasin you like an escaped criminal

So just buy the ticket she said
And you’ll feel so much better
