Enter Shikari – We Can Breathe In Space, They Just Don't Want Us To Escape lyrics

And what comes next?
A chance to save ourselves...

Imagine magma encrusted in rock
And on the surface of this world
All eyes are on the clock
All our empires, our philosophies
Our practiced faiths, our revolutions
Our proud sciences are but a flickering
In one day of the lives of the stars

We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape

And what comes next
The constellations, yes, all 88 of them
A chance to save ourselves
Like the G8, they meet to procrastinate
Greetings, we are an infant species
Crawling into our own premature decline
The north star is chairing the meeting
He knows we're spoilt
And he's sniggering at our histories

We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape

The hollow proposals mean we'll migrate
But they'll bleed us dry until the 11th hour
And when dawn breaks I'll sit and stagnate
With this metric tonne on your shoulders
How do you cope
We are an infant species
Crawling into our own premature decline
The north star is chairing the meeting
He knows we're spoilt
And he's sniggering at our histories

Let's prove the stars wrong
We've got to do this

I find it hard to believe that we are alone

    We can breath in space, they just don't want us to escape, for me personally represents the high corprate buisneses that controll goverments around the world these days making all the decision are that obsessed on controlling the world by religion (wich I personally think was created to give us some sort of fear/hope to keep us under controll) and money so they can be the elit of the world for the forseen future are holding us back from technolgies we (the poeple) don't even dream possible, I believe we have the technolgies available now were we can have sources of energy used for fuel that don't leave us needing to burn the earth natural sources anymore, but if we knew that then the corrupt high goverment corps. Wouldnt be able to make money and therfore wouldnt be able to controll the world and take forward there plan of global controll, theres lots of things I could explain about everything they sing about (although I cannot be sure that's what there singing about) I'm pretty certain myself that it is. Watch the zeitgiest movies, it explains everything and will open your eyes. On the enter shikari website they tell you to watch them as they are the most important 'movies' to view. So obviuosly you put 2 and 2 together there lyrics and the zeitgiest and you get there bid to let us know we need to move forward we need to stand up and realize now!

    The great interpreter has it spot on! Was just about to write something very simaler but then saw yours and thought it'd just look like I'm copying, so yea man that's exactly what I think, and I think most if not all there songs are based on this topic, but with little differences. The world is not what we think it is, we need to move forward for the good of the human race sooner rather than later.
