Chumbawamba - Here's To The Rest Of Your Life Lyrics

Font:

  • Why settle for what were shown
  • When there is so much more
  • Sometimes the book of law
  • Is only half the story
  • Means and ends
  • Deciding where to draw the line
  • Loss of work in sellafield homes
  • Or the threat of cancers yet to come
  • The choice seems obvious
  • There is no choice
  • Only the option of looking outside
  • This narrow definition of
  • What you see is all there will ever be
  • There comes a time--that time is now
  • When every second, every day
  • When every action, every though
  • Will tell the world how you cast your vote
  • They break our legs
  • And we say thank you when they offer us crutches
  • Tired of mild reform
  • Sick of hand-me-downs
  • We topple all the theories to the ground
  • All real change
  • Must come from below
  • Our bosses must live in fear
  • Of the factory floor
  • And when they smile
  • And they ask for my support
  • Ill give them these words
  • And a bloody nose
  • You dont help your enemy
  • When youre at war
  • There are moments in all of our lives
  • Tiny sparks still deep inside
  • When a new-born baby cries
  • When youre watching clouds in a summer sky
  • The first time you walked out on strike
  • Love and sex and holding tight
  • Things that cant be bought
  • By promises and votes
  • I hate the things I love being criminalized
  • I hate the straight-jacket schools I grew up in
  • I hate mps, judges, and magistrates
  • I hate being taught to base my life on tv stars
  • I hate being kept waiting by bureaucrats
  • I hate wars, and all the people who love them
  • I hate the idea of living on other peoples backs
  • I hate being filed and registered and classified
  • I hate being watched and monitored
  • I hate police
  • I hate the way you talk down at me
  • I hate being told what to do
  • I hate you when you dont listen
  • I hate the way you distort my sexuality with pornography
  • I hate the pain we inflict on each other, on animals, and on the earth
  • And I hate how love songs have become cliches
  • Through endless, shallow repetition
  • Each angry word
  • Every cynical put-down
  • Every song is carefully born
  • From a hope of something better to come
  • All jumbled-up
  • Love and hate and love
  • Each prompted by the other
  • For the cause of peace we have to go to war
  • Refusing to sleep
  • Whilst theres a world to win
  • Yet happy to dream
  • Dreams make the plans to change this world
  • Not just some future heaven
  • But today and every day
  • In our place of work
  • In the queue for the metro bus
  • Organize!
  • Heres the rest of our lives!
  • (repeat)
  • A tiny spark still deep inside
  • (repeat)
  • We can and will run the factories and mills
  • We can and will educate ourselves
  • We can and will work the fields
  • We can and will police ourselves
  • We can and will run the factories and mills
  • We can and will educate ourselves
  • We can and will work the fields
  • We can and will police ourselves
  • We can and will create and build
  • (repeat)
