​Writings On The Wall

This song is by The City Shakeup and appears on the EP Fought Control (2014).

Original video
So you say if I don't vote then it shows I do not care
To that I ask if you believe democracy is fair
Could I win the next election with my morals still in tact
Or is the way we rise above to scratch the devils back

You tell me that I'm jaded and a rebel with no cause
Well since I lack direction please enlighten me with yours
Political agenda has been twisted just to serve
Those who claim entitlement for all they don't deserve

Have we lost control?

This is our hope, this is our fate
This is our fight for a better day
We tried to run you made us crawl, till now

This is our war, this is our hell
Just another notch on our prison cell
We tried to run you made us crawl
The writing's on the wall

So you started out with good intent your morals set in stone
But quickly realised you'd never make it on your own
It couldn't hurt to take a bribe when reasons are so pure
But corruption is an illness one for which there is no cure

So yes I give a fuck about political disease
And no I will not cast my vote to put your mind at ease
Perhaps if everybody wasn't forced upon their knees
Then we'd tell you to go fuck yourself with your democracy

This is our hope, this is our fate
This is our fight for a better day
We tried to run you made us crawl, till now

This is our war, this is our hell
Just another notch on our prison cell
We tried to run you made us crawl
The writing's on the wall

Conform, Consript, comply
Never be afraid to ask why

Submit, Subserve
Is this all we deserve?

This is our hope, this is our fate
This is our fight for a better day
We tried to run you made us crawl, till now

This is our war, this is our hell
Just another notch on our prison cell
We tried to run you made us crawl
The writing's on the wall

Well the writings on the wall
The writing's on the wal
