lyrics

Another colour scheme, a brand new coat of paint
Applied to crumbling walls, we've papered over cracks
This flavour of the month has soured on my tongue
But we've got years to go, it's only just begun
An unfamiliar face, an unfamiliar name
This cycle's on repeat and starting up again
It always comes and goes, one big revolving door
We may seem cynical: we've heard it all before

And we get told that this time it'll make a difference
I can't help thinking, I can't help thinking
We get told it's because of our indifference
I can't help thinking, I can't help thinking

We all go round and round
(we're going the same way)
And no-one's getting out
(the doors are shut: can you see what's wrong with this?)
But we keep trying to reinvent the wheel
On this tragic roundabout

Another action plan, a brand new policy
Is nothing more or less than populist deceit
Intentions might be good but it's always the same
We can't make progress when your ego's in the way
The issues that we face, the problems that we see
Are superseded by your personality
You need to understand, when it goes wrong again
This time we're not going to take the blame

And we get told that this time it'll make a difference
I can't help thinking, I can't help thinking
We get told it's because of our indifference
I can't help thinking, I can't help thinking

We all go round and round
(we're going the same way)
And no-one's getting out
(the doors are shut: can you see what's wrong with this?)
But we keep trying to reinvent the wheel
On this tragic roundabout

So paint your face in primary colours
Let the world see what you stand for
And we'll tear down all these primary colours
'Cos this is nothing that we can stand for

We all go round and round
(we're going the same way)
And no-one's getting out
(the doors are shut: can you see what's wrong with this?)
But we keep trying to reinvent the wheel
On this tragic roundabout
