The battle lines may be drawn,
And all the people may form up on the lines,
And everybody’s talking about it.
What we’re all gonna be, but everyone I can see,
Seems to bumble along, just like a rolling stone.

And no-one ever thinks it will happen,
Oh the people sing along, but no-one ever thinks it will happen.
We’re just a world away.
A modern world away.

It seems impossible, a hopeless struggle for all,
But the stars are still bright – a black and beautiful night,
A lot of things to defend,
And I hope that we end up on a plane, so everyone can see it.

But no-one ever thought it would happen,
Oh the people sing along, but no-one ever thought it would happen.
We’re just a world away.

So there’s a train coming in,
And everyone can see a hold-up on the line,
And everybody’s talking about it.
But that doesn’t mean it’ll never make it back another time,
The world is what you make it.

And no-one ever thought it would happen,
Oh the people sing along, but no-one ever thought it would happen.
We’re just a world away.
A modern world away.
We’re just a world away.
A modern world away.
I’ll bring my soul.
I’ll bring my soul.
I’ll bring my soul.
I’ll bring my soul.
