lyrics

Love lost empty playground
A rusted swing is reeling in the wind
No jumps for joy nor gales of laughter
The children have all gone
The tempest has chased them all away

The sandpit and the see-saw
Now abandoned
But in a heatwave
Everything may change

The future in reverse
And all its darkest chapters
A recurring curse

Another well-cut suit
Comes to cook their accounts
Hollow slogans and paroles
Covering hoardings and walls
Noise and jazz and screaming colours
Terrorise our eyes and ears
They have got you by the balls
Deep down in your drums and homes

You think you hold the controls
But being only marionettes
Controlled by machines
For something sick and obcense
They found some new opiates
While we are trained to consume
To spend a fortune on crap
it’s as simple as that

This is the future in reverse
And all the darkest chapters
A recurring a curse
The hands of time are ticking backwards
The rivers run uphill
And it only gets worse

These days ours homes need no wires
That was 1984
We’re subscribing by choice
And unfold without need
Someone is blazing a trail
For a hoax and a swag
Not a harmless april fool
See the writing’s on the wall

This is the future in reverse
And all the darkest chapters
A recurring a curse
The hands of time are ticking backwards
The rivers run uphill
And it only gets worse
