about

'There' is dedicated to the ship-jumpers; the type who, rather than challenge the establishment, acquire enough money and disappear to a land where nothing bad will ever again happen to them...

lyrics

We won't have to lift a finger, there's a bed that's ready made.
There's no old elite to overthrow, no debt that can't be paid.
The streets are paved with stone that makes the hill seem not so steep.
We'll forget what petty grievances keep citizens from sleep.

Here, your voice is ignored, your cross is erased,
your intent, no matter how pristine, will quickly be debased.
This is no job for the likes of us, no shift can we effect.
There are far too many of them too few of us reject.
Close accounts, burn the deeds,
pack what counts and leave the keys.
An easy life will find the ones who dare.
The pieces of the jigsaw will align
when we get there.

No taxes will be paid for any promises unmet.
We'll grow lazy, assured that those opposed will pose no threat.
The cop will never falter, the crop will never fail.
We can sink the ship that takes us having no more need to sail.

Here, your voice is ignored, your cross is erased,
your defence despite being undisputed deftly gets disgraced.
This is no job for the likes of us, no shift can we effect.
There are far too many of them too few of us reject.
Raid the jar, end affairs,
fire the car and sell the shares.
An easy life will find the ones who dare.
The weather will be never less than fine
when we get there.

Settle tabs, resign in type,
take the jabs and swallow hype.
An easy life will find the ones who dare.
There'll be little need to ever flex your spine
when we get there.
