They say sometimes one step forward, two steps back
But we get there and fail to remember where we are
Or from where we came.
But the stark truth is that no-one seems to care,
What's won is won, what's lost is lost,
Two steps back we're all the same.
They'll have you looking everywhere.
To your left, to the right, we'll get on alright.
But they trick us into thinking someone else is to blame.
We stick the same picture in a different frame
And suddenly we think we're all the wiser.
But we just take two steps backwards again.
And there in the high tower they laugh.
Their power doesn't care for culture and creed
But whoever they can use to accelerate their gain
As lowly we spread and multiply through
This finite sphere while the few up top
Accrue to our lack, yet still we blame
The ones like us. It's a shame.
