David Gray - A Century Ends lyrics

Cast your eyes into the distance Try to focus on it all Find a spirit of resistance Instead of pride before the fall Forge some opposition From disparate strands It ain't the prettiest position As a century ends Unstable situation Faces made of wax Streams of melting gla** Sheets of butchered facts The roar of the machine Hooded hearts and j**elled hands And anger spilling out like gasoline As a century ends Everything I seen, everything that I heard It ain't even the tip of the iceberg Fire down memory lane So pa** me my rose tinted gla**es again Through a fog of contradiction Out to the lake of tears See society admiring it's own reflection Chase a light that shines and disappears Careful what you say, 'cos reality offends Just sit back and let your soul decay As a century ends And it's easy to get weary As you fight to get it done Gainst a popular theory That it's over 'fore it's even begun Strain the limit of compa**ion Tend a wound that never mends And honesty still out of fashion As a century ends
