Not Ours To Lose
Words and Music by Chris Velan
------------------------------------

We’re all outside your house tonight
We’re wondering where you went
No time for left delusion
The money’s all been spent

And the dinosaurs behind closed doors
Seem to have your ear
But we’re still here

Dark storm clouds are forming
Over the land reason’s end
And we all feel the heat
But still they’re trying to defend

Every hour on phantom power
As if it’s going to last
But it’s going fast

CHORUS
Does your mind know that much
Do your eyes see that far
Do you speak for generations
With the risks being what they are

Can you leave it the ground
Or will you help to light the fuse
This world’s not ours
This world’s not ours
This world is not ours to lose

Which master do you bow to
Whose interest it in
Does money buy the outcome
Is the fix already in
Do you represent a few
Or do you represent us all
It’s your call

Those who reap the benefits
Will die happy and blind
To any harm they cause or
To the mess they left behind

History will wonder
How we knew it all along
We still chose wrong


Does your mind know that much
Do your eyes see that far
Do you speak for generations
With the risks being what they are
Can you leave it the ground
Or will you help to light the fuse

This world’s not ours
This world’s not ours
This world is not ours to lose

BRIDGE
Miles of dirty veins
Pumping dead blood through the planes
Leave us strung out
Like a junkie who is lost

Are we so insane
So selfish to complain
That we have a right to progress
At all cost

Does your mind know that much
Do your eyes see that far
Do you speak for generations
With the risks being what they are
Can you leave it the ground
Or will you help to light the fuse
‘Cause this world’s not ours to lose

Does your mind know that much
Do your eyes see that far
Do you speak for generations
With the risks being what they are
Can you leave it the ground
Or will you help to light the fuse

This world’s not ours
This world’s not ours
This world is not ours to lose

This world’s not ours
This world’s not ours
This world is not ours to lose
