England Descending - Lyrics

Something here in the air
Catches me unaware
Where are we going
This my land?
Or are you mine?
Here in my hand
Earth in my fist
What have I missed?
I see the ballroom
Hear the beat
Then search for dancing
In the street
I hear the angels' heavenly choir
Then smell the devils' tails on fire
What's this - an omen or a lie?
Battle field dormant
But still waiting to die?
I thought war was over, but no
It seems that we're lined up, ready to go
I see the north of England
Feed the south
Nation in two
Thin belly, big mouth
One face to the world
Backs to the wall
Once bigger than our size
Now as we are: small
Something here in the air
Catches me unaware
What choices now guide us
Apart from fears?
No blame, England descending
No defence, no defending
An empire that is ending
