Pet Shop Boys – Twentieth Century lyrics

Oh, I learned a lesson
From the Twentieth Century
That I don't think we can just dismiss
After one hundred years
Of inhumanity
The lesson that I learned was this:

Sometimes the solution
Is worse than the problem
Let's stay together

Well I bought a ticket
To the revolution
And I cheered when the statues fell
Everyone came
To destroy what was rotten
But they killed off what was good as well

Sometimes the solution
Is worse than the problem
Let's stay together

Stay with me
This century
Together we're better

Oh, I learned a lesson
From the Twentieth Century
It may seem somewhat hit or miss
If you've certainty
'bout the way it's all meant to be
The lesson that you need is this:

Sometimes the solution
Is worse than the problem
Let's stay together
