They want our way of life
Well, they can take mine any time they like
Cause god knows I know I ain't living right
I'm wrong oh, I know I'm so wrong

So like the Roman Empire fell away
Let me tell you, we are going the same way
Ah, behold the decline and fall
All hold hands with our backs to the wall

It's the end, why don't you admit it?
It's the same from Auschwitz to Ipswich
Evil comes I know from not where
But if you take a look inside yourself
Maybe you'll find some in there

Not one single soul was saved
I was ordering an Indian takeaway
I was spared whilst others went to an early grave
Oh, got stoned, yeah, went out and got stoned

Well, if your ancestors could see standing there
They would gaze in wonder at your Frigidaire
They had to fight just to survive
So can't you do something with your life?

It's the end, why don't you admit it?
It's the same from Auschwitz to Ipswich
Evil comes I know from not where
But if you take a look inside yourself
Maybe you'll find some in there

Here it comes, why don't you embrace it?
You lack the guts needed to face it
Say goodbye to the way you've been living
You never realized you were on the wrong side, nobody's going to win

They want our way of life
Well, they can take mine any time they like
