lyrics

Born to the mis education,
On this planet of fight or flight,
I don't suppose we'll change things overnight,
As long as we treat one and other,
Like we're born of another mother,
We'll find the occasion to cry,

Contract breached, we tried the reach the bough that bore the ripeness
But there's no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare brand of beautiful
No one to rescue me

Born of imagination
Believing the dreams we had
Wake from our own creation and be glad
We can't stop what never began
Don't suppose we'll save this mortal skin
Gonna wake up tomorrow unbound.

There is no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare bran of beautiful
No one to rescue me
Would'nt want there to be

This is where knowledge fails us
This is where language falls apart
Here is where we find humility
Here's where we don't beg for favours
Here's where we share in a brothers labour
Here's where we tear up the guarentee

There is no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare bran of beautiful
No one to rescue me
Would'nt want there to be
