News  24  2050       track 7   from the album ‘Raft’                       

Good evening, here is the news from Planet Zarg.

Today a mass migration of economic migrants and asylum seekers,

fleeing the dying planet Earth were repelled

by the loyal Royal Zargonian Armed Forces.

Now over to our roving reporter down on the ground.

The caravans are leaving

And the trains are all on their way.

The papers all run out down here

Now the trees have all had their day.

The sun is burning they’re on their knees,

The humans are all on the run.

The time for their understanding,   

It got lost looking for fun,

The time for their understanding,

It got lost, under their burning sun.

The tribes are on the hill sides,

They’re tearing the towers all down.

They’re besieging every single petrol station in town.

The ships have sailed the tides have turned,

I can see them all on the run.

The time for their understanding,   

It got lost looking for fun,

The time for their understanding,

It got lost, don’t you know it got lost,    

Under their burning sun.

“There are known knowns.

There are things we know we know.

We also know there are known unknowns

That is to say we know there are some things we do not know.

But there also unknown unknowns,

The ones we don’t know we don’t know.”

Their computers all crashed

The hard drives broke,

The bites are all bitten away.

The banking and the commerce stopped

When the world wide web crashed yesterday,

And all their raw materials are gone,

The bankers are all on the run.

The time for their understanding,     

It got lost looking for fun.

The time for their understanding it got lost,

Like their Freedoms they lost, Human rights they lost,

Like their Futures they lost, under the burning Sun.
