    When they look back at us and they write down their history
    What will they say about our generation?
    We're the ones who knew everything and still we did nothing
    Harvested everything, planted nothing.
    Well we live pretty well in the wake of the goldrush
    Floating in comfort on waves of our apathy
    Quietly gnawing away at Her body
    Until we mortgage the future, bury our children
    Storehouses full with the fruits we've been given
    We send off the scrag-ends to suckle the starving
    But still we can't feed this strange hunger inside
    Greedy, restless and unsatisfied.

    I was never much one for the great "Big Bang" theory
    Going out in a blaze of suicidal glory
    Not foolish and brave, these leaders of ours
    Just stupid and petty, unworthy of power;
    Just a little leak here and a small error there
    Another square mile poisoned forever
    A series of sad and pathetic little fizzles
    And out go the lights, never to return.
    The affair it is over, the passion is dead
    She stares at us now with ice in Her eyes
    But we turn away from these bitter reproaches
    And take up distractions to forget what we're doing

    I stand on these hills and I watch Her at night
    A thousands square miles, a million orange lights
    Wounded and scarred, She lies silent in pain
    Raped and betrayed in the cold acid rain
    And I wish and I wish
    We could start over again
    Yes I wish and I wish
    We could win back Her love once again
