There was a house in a field on the side of a cliff 
And the waves crashing below were just said to be a myth 
So they ignored the warnings from the ships in the docks 
Now the house on the cliff is the wreckage on the rocks

Nothing could fix the building flawed foundation 
The scaffolding and stilts were the laws and legislation 
This house was doomed, but they didn't care 
They'd invested in the system that was beyond repair

When I was little... 
I dressed up as an astronaut, and explored outer space 
I dressed up as a superhero, and ran about the place 
I dressed up as a fireman, and rescued those in need 
I dressed up as a doctor, and cured every disease

It was crystal clear to me back then 
That the only problems that I could face 
Would be the same problems that affect us all 
But of course this sense of common existence 
Was sucked out of me in an instant 
As though from birth I could walk 
But I was forced to crawl

So this is such an exciting time, TO BE ALIVE 
Our generations gotta fight, TO SURVIVE 
It's in your hands now, who's future? 
OUR FUTURE! OUR FUTURE!
