Ground Control Lyrics
where do you go where do you go for external forces
your body wakes but never waits to restore resources
do you believe in what you do or is it just for money
so if the world all does the same no wonder things are funny

just when you thought that you were building on a rock
you find you've dug yourself a hole
and you'll be facing such a futuristic shock
when ground control slips away from you
ground control slips away

how can you face the future

do you create and generate to build a land of plenty
or do you misappropriate until the world is empty
do you despise and criticise with no absolution
or do you stop to a**lyse to find a new solution

just when you thought that you were building on a rock
you find you've dug yourself a hole
and you'll be facing such a futuristic shock
when ground control slips away from you
ground control slips away

they're cutting up the world we know
for reasons they're ashamed to show
and all we love will have to go
they're storming us without a war
extending force until we fall
while we lie back and take it all

and everything our fathers made
and everything they fought to save
is trampled under this parade
and nothing's going to stop them now
their policy will know no bounds
as soon as they control the ground

under the flag of liberty you'll find corruption lurking
it's our responsibility to keep the system working

just when you thought that you were building on a rock
you find you've dug yourself a hole
and you'll be facing such a futuristic shock
when ground control slips away from you
ground control slips away
