COUNTING LESS

1st lyrics

Last I checked the show was over

Whatever shall I switch to now?

Time's up for the smiles

That infest us all year 'round

The coronation's ruined

By the savagery in the street

The East End is most unwelcome

Through the fractures of those we meet

It's so confusing

So confusing

(Main Chorus)

(Main Chorus)

Yesterday there was one

Tomorrow there may be three

For today, two are at the helm

Of the view the world can see

The turning of the Earth

Leaves us with a test

How can we feed all the more

When we're always counting less

2nd lyrics

Burning through the rundown

Of all the shortest films

The imagery piles up

And we give in to our whims

Of a tearful surprise

A tender shock

The moments we see

Holds our protests in lock

(Main Chorus)

Yesterday there was one

Tomorrow there may be three

For today, two are at the helm

Of the view the world can see

The turning of the Earth

Leaves us with a test

How can we feed all the more

When we're always counting less

3rd lyrics

Queens and Dukes all celebrate

The criminals we hail as great

All in flight, all soar high

Their fingers blister as they kill the sky

But laws fall silent, this is a war

Their days leave behind a thirst for more

And at the end, as they know peace

What costs us less is that they'll never cease

(Main Chorus)

Yesterday there was one

Tomorrow there may be three

For today, two are at the helm

Of the view the world can see

The turning of the Earth

Leaves us with a test

How can we feed all the more

When we're always counting less
