Sad days, kissing the cheeks of the families who are walking away
Tragic, the pubs are opposing, the system is broken, decay

Because business is down
At the depot, defenses are the only things built
Neighbors wave goodbye to each other
This country is over, they say

Yeah, this is life
In a modern town
The windows smashed open with the doors kicked out
It's not a good day left to be in a fight
'Cause living is hard through the struggles of life
If nothing gets done it will never be right
But don't shut 'em down

Lately, the 21st century's been crazy
It's the sign of the times
Buildings decomposing in slumber
There's no work for all till they wake

Yeah, this is life
In a modern town
The windows smashed open with the doors kicked out
It's not a good day left to be in a fight
'Cause living is hard through the struggles of life
If nothing gets done it will never be right
But don't shut 'em down
Don't shut 'em down

Too many faults, no reasons
The rains that fall, dry bleeding
Upon the ashes of our homes
Our homes, our homes
Save our homes

Manic
The word on the street here is panic
There's a riot at hand
People, taking care of the people
There's no other way, or we'll break

Yeah, this is life
In a modern town
The windows smashed open with the doors kicked out
It's not a good day left to be in a fight
'Cause living is hard through the struggles of life

This is life
In a modern town
The windows smashed open with the doors kicked out
It's not a good day left to be in a fight
'Cause living is hard through the struggles of life
If nothing gets done it will never be right
But don't shut 'em down
Don't shut 'em down

Sad days, kissing the cheeks of the families (you can't shut 'em down)
Sad days, kissing the cheeks of the families (you won't shut 'em down)
