Stereolab – Laisser-Faire lyrics

It will come to us as a shock
But we're letting it happen
People with their carelessness
Governments with their laisser-faire
Are going to lead us straight into it
That's for sure

History will only repeat itself once more
The western world is going more and more right wing
Yearning for some sort of protection, too scared to do anythng
Not to take the path that's dragging us down, oh no
Remember it's in our power not to go down
I can feel it more and more
Within ten years we'll have a war
