Enter Shikari - We Can Breathe In Space, They Just Don't Want Us T Lyrics

And what comes next?
a chance to save ourselfs

Imagine Magma Incrusted in rock,
out on the surface of this world,
All Eyes are on the clock
Call our empires, out philosophes,
Our practised faithes (our revelutions!)

Our proud sciences are but a flickering
In one day of the lives of the stars

We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape

And what comes next
(The constellations, yes, all 88 of them)
A chance to save ourselves
(Like the G8, they meet to procrastinate Greetings)
We are an infant species
Crawling into our own premature decline
The north star is chairing the meeting
He knows we're spoilt
And he's sniggering at our histories

We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape

The hollow proposals mean we'll migrate
But they'll bleed us dry until the 11th hour
And when dawn breaks I'll sit and stagnate
With this metric tonne on your shoulders
How do you cope

We are an infant species Crawling into our own
premature decline
The north star is chairing the meeting He knows we're spoilt
And he's sniggering at our histories

Let's prove the stars wrong
We've got to do this
I find it hard to believe that we are alone x4
