The demonstrations got boring br />
Well it was obvious that the government was ignoring us.
It抯 hard to drag yourself through empty streets
On an empty stomach and no sleep.
The shortcomings got clearer,
As the price we paid got dearer and dearer.
It抯 supposed to be a case of give and take br />
Well I was feeling the give and making a mistake.

And I抳e heard it said that the unexamined life
Isn抰 much worth living, and I抦 sure they抮e right.
But it抯 hard to keep on fighting the good fight
When no one else seems bothered, yeah,
When no one抯 on your side.
