It's too late for our past.
It's too late to birth a middle class. (You want it, you need to really
Want it)
It's too late to grow a brand new country from the bones.
(You want it, you need to really want it)

Way, way back in the day there was nothing we could do, oh no.
Nothing we can do, oh no.

It's too late to recover (I see the vultures coming)
It's too late to satisfy the mob (I see the vultures coming)

You say that things used to be better,
You say that things are getting better, well?
You say that things are getting better, you say that things used to be
Better.

Way, way back in the day there was nothing we could do, oh no.
Nothing we can do, oh no.

I tell you it doesn't really matter.
Oh no, please tell me it doesn't really matter.
