lyrics

We took a walk through what's left of the stadium
after the games had gone
Thinking about all the medals we didn't win, the medals we didn't win.
We were seduced by the promise of prizes, sprinting and stumbling till we realised we were caught in a loop again, jumping through hoops again.
Yes there were choices
choices we could have made
but we let it hang,
Got sold down a river of Coca Cola

We said goodbye to the loss of our youth with some youth killing, soul searching substance abuse,
Was it we didn't train enough
or didn't complain enough?
Someone else built this place, someone else set these rules, how the hell didn't we figure out who and how to beat them?

Yes there were choices
choices we could have made
but we let it hang,
Got sold down a river of Coca Cola.

Since everything that we've been sold as a dream is just slogans and fakery
You'd think that by now we'd have got to a point where we don't believe in anything
but somehow each day we still wake up and hope it will all amount to something.
Hope's the thing that kills you
Hope that someone else will change the rules
Time to leave the stadium.
