lyrics

Far beyond this darkling plain lurk new myths of limitless gain
Abandoned lands of milk and honey cede to fiscal reign
We bow to derivative calves forged in oil-fuelled furnaces
Graphs of bovine gold keep growing, gorging slowly on
our swollen GDP
our credit histories
these toxic equities
Sponsoring prime-time tragedy

Splendid shards of glass and steel pierce these skies with monochrome fealty
'Beauty so old and so new' accrues the tarnished hue of greed
So we serve the corporate need, blessing bonds with quantitative ease
These hedged inequities keep growing, gorging on
our swollen GDP
Our credit histories
these toxic equities
Sponsoring prime-time tragedy

JM Keynes where are you now?
JM Keynes where are you now?
In the wilderness with your locusts and honey, Jonny where are you?
Oh Jonny Keynes, how we need you now

Because we are the dying breed, caught between the Sound and the Fury
Numinous insolvency casts us to mammon's tawdry schemes
We strut and we fret and we rage, sell out our hour upon this stage
Worshipping new days of trade, desperate for the memories to fade
Of our hopes and our dreams
And our tragic histories
Our decaying philosophies
We're trying to buy back our dignity
