In an emergency
Dropping the debt
Is a price to be met
If reality were simple
You'd see it the way we need it…

The Nation's on probation
Great warmings on the rise
Misinformed and disorientated
There's a shit load of panic out there
Smells like rusting rain.

War is a tragedy, not a tale
Fairy tales are just a distraction
Distraction from reality
Three seconds is all it's going to take
One, two.. three…
And there's another starving kid down.

The Nation's on probation
Great warmings on the rise
Misinformed and disorientated
There's a shit load of panic out there
Smells like rusting rain.

Quit with the premonitions
Face up to your decisions
'Cause you are the face
Of today and the future
We are the future
In this global emergency…
