lyrics

UNTOUCHED BY TIME OR PROGRESS

The place I’m in is not black or white. It’s grey
While the world turns by we all remain the same
Untouched by time or progress
There’s no space to occupy in this city
Where everyone is hard and old
The citizens are clouds of smoke

I see cold hands and fingers clutching at shadows
I see sunken eyes in faces of people that have no place here
There’s no space to occupy in this city
Where everyone is hard and old
This place is just so cold

Time here is standing still I wanna break it all down and start it again
Time here is standing still I wanna take this picture and colour it in

Regardless of the distance we have come
We still do it like our fathers would have done
Change is irrelevant
There were men with dirty faces who never saw the sun
Now our skin is so much cleaner but the changes come so slow ‘round here
There’s no space to occupy in this city
For those people who will not do what they’re told
This place is just so cold

Time here is standing still I wanna break it all down and start it again
Time here is standing still I wanna take this picture and colour it in

I wanna break it all down and start it again
I wanna take this place and colour it in
I wanna go right back to where it begins
I wanna take this place and colour it in

Time here is standing still I wanna break it all down and start it again
Time here is standing still I wanna take this picture and colour it in
