JUST RUNNING ON THE SPOT – PAUL WELLER

housing estate

I was hoping we’d make real progress –
But it seems we have lost the power
Any tiny step of advancement
Is like a raindrop falling into the ocean –
We’re running on the spot – always have – always will?
We’re just the next generation of the emotionally crippled.
Though we keep piling up the building blocks
The structure never seems to get any higher
Because we keep kicking out the foundations
And stand useless while our lives fall down.
I believe in life – and I believe in love
But the world in which I live in – keeps trying to prove me wrong.

Out in the pastures we call society
You can’t see further than the bottom of your glass
Only young but easily shocked
You get all violent when the boat gets rocked –

Just like sheep – little lambs into the slaughter
Don’t fully grasp what exactly is wrong –
Truth is you never cared – still –
You get all violent when the boat gets rocked –

Intelligence should be our first weapon
And stop reveling in rejection
And follow yourselves, not some ageing drain brain
Whose quite content to go on feeding you garbage
We’re running on the spot – always have – always will?
We’re just the next generation of the emotionally crippled
