lyrics

You and I went walking to the edge of town
Sat on the new bridge
The sky was full of cranes, the city spread out like a puzzle
Impossible to fix
They're building houses that no one can afford you said
"I can't stay here much longer"
These rooftops look like headstones, every home a tomb
We all build our own

So we cling to the habitual, half hearted rituals
While someone sells the ground from under our feet
Work ourselves to death for a little box to sleep in
Is this what we call living?
They're bulldozing places we once knew
I'm losing all my bearings
The memories we harboured have all been cast adrift
So what now?
We settle for less

Settle for less

So as the sky changed colour, and all the lights came on
We made our way back home
Tomorrow we'll go driving, your suitcase in the back
And an open map
They can keep their
Lifeless models
We'll make something real
While they settle for less
