There was a house in a field on the side of a cliff
And the waves crashing below were just said to be a myth
So they ignored the warnings from the ships in the docks
Now the house on the cliff is the wreckage on the rocks

Nothing could fix the building flawed foundation
The scaffolding and stilts were the laws and legislation
This house was doomed, but they didn't care
They'd invested in the system that was beyond repair

When I was little...
I dressed up as an astronaut, and explored outer space
I dressed up as a superhero, and ran about the place
I dressed up as a fireman, and rescued those in need
I dressed up as a doctor, and cured every disease

It was crystal clear to me back then
That the only problems that I could face
Would be the same problems that affect us all
But of course this sense of common existence
Was sucked out of me in an instant
As though from birth I could walk
But I was forced to crawl

So this is such an exciting time, TO BE ALIVE
Our generations gotta fight, TO SURVIVE
It's in your hands now, who's future?
OUR FUTURE! OUR FUTURE!

I don't know if it's right, but I think it sounds better.
