Flick Of The Finger
Lyrics Beady Eye

Woke up this morning, I was laid out flat on the dark side
With the moon and the room on the wrong side
I took a needle, sew myself right back at the seams
I saw my universal gleam

I see the wonder of life and look for the wall
Just taking a walk in the sun
In time, in just a second like the ghost of a bad idea
I feel myself getting the fear

Come on, have we decided if we like being part of the plan?
The sands are shifting and there's nowhere to land
It's on, it doesn't matter if all the best tickets are sold
And all the old stories are told
I know you're gonna tell me that you hear every word I say
But the future gets written today
Yeah the future gets written today

"Don't be deceived when our revolution has been finally stamped out, and they pat you paternally on the shoulder and say that there's no inequality worth speaking of and no more reason for fighting, because if you believe them they will be completely in charge, in their marble homes and granite banks, from which they rob the people of the world under the pretense of bringing them culture. Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they'll send you out to protect their gold in wars, whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly, until they can, with a flick of the finger, tear a million of you to pieces."
