about

It’s about the decay of the welfare state – telling the story of what was there before it goes, though also saying that we built such defeat ourselves by not noticing.

lyrics

This is the story of everything that went wrong
Cure can never better prevention
The collapse of the stilts, and we're still falling
Something new will come along and replace the thing we called home

This is the story of how we got locked in this room
And made it a casket to furnished it as our tomb
This is the story of how we learned to laugh
At things that were said and done on our behalf

The sun is setting over the chance you get for some relief
The moon is pulling the tide over the sea walls that save us from grief
