From the recording Songs on Toast

Lyrics

Do your eyes witness the struggle?
Can your heart buy this trouble?
A lifetime passes under a light
While another dives deeper into night
Who'll wear the bitter scars of this fight

Well I opened up the curtains
I saw faces lined with burdens
I thought it was time to make a new start
So I wrote it all out in consecutive parts
Seemed to me the end of aristocracy

To look over all this foment
This cool and constructed duplicity
Maybe it's time to take up photography
Get a feel for the end of democracy

But the aristo-cats came back
Wearing bankers suits and macs
Against the cold ashen rain they had planned
Just got to know how to show who's to blame
Put the makers of war to shame

Do your eyes witness the struggle?
Can your heart buy this trouble?
A lifetime passes under a light
While another dives deeper into night
You'll wear the bitter scars of this fight
