​Our System

This song is by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and appears on the album English Electric (2013).

Across the Universe
Our system is expanding
Crystal velvet void
Stained by the disease

Empty words and deeds
Pleading to the ether
Perfect wires and steel
Pierced the cold abyss

Across the Universe
We're reaching out to Heaven
Only to perceive
No-one there at all

Every world we reach
Perfect, pure and clean
Every word we preach
Spoken to deceive

Across the Universe
We're broken and we're bleeding
Pointing to the stars
Stolen by degrees

Taken to the edge
Beautiful, serene
Save us from ourselves
Delivered from this end
