Humankind lyrics

I've read that it's official
That our love has solidified in ritual
And all our sweet nothings melted into vitriol
We eat it up, we chew it round, we spit it out
But I doubt that we've got a lot to shout about
The time has come, the bell has rung and now it's seconds out
I'm just a man but I try to be a human
I'm just a man but I try to be a human
Now the inmates are in charge of the asylum
All this silence, it will only lead to violence
Now the inmates are in charge of the asylum
Watch out
I've seen the big oaks falling
And I've heard the dying voice of England calling
No vote is worth a damn, we're stuck here in our heartland stalling
Her nerve is twice as cold as the icebox in my fridge
I'd write you letters but she took away my privilege
I'll be there at the auction just to see how high she'll bid
I'm just a man but I try to be human
I'm just a man but I try to be human
Now the inmates are in charge of the asylum
All this silence, well it might only lead to violence
Now the inmates are in charge of the asylum
Watch out
