about

This track was the first to be released in 2015.

lyrics

All we wanted was time to sing, time to try anything
Forget the lonely yesterdays and try to live for today
I know we tried to bend the rules, I knew we had everything to lose
Security is a job away, but who needs safety anyway

And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway
And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway, anyway today

It took time to understand why they had to make a stand
Are they trying to save our souls, or scared we'll undermine their roles
Try to do it our own way or just follow whatever they say
To realise our life's dreams or just a part of a management scheme

And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway
And it feels like the last time today
And who remembers playtime anyway, anyway today
