The Lifeboat Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a shadow across the land
There's a hatred and a hunger, and it's hard to understand
How we fell so far from where we began
There's a stumble now in our step
There's blood in the flem, there's a lump in the breast
There's a smell of sickness on our breath
There's a dread deep down in our bones
Something is finished, abandon your homes
Strike out into the great unknown
But there are no new continents to be found
No new frontiers to cross, no gold in the ground
Stay with the books, blessed ye be drowned
Verse 2
Save what you can
Behind us the old world in flames
Lower the lifeboats, take us to her
Steer the way
Verse 3
There are stories now worth being told
There are victories to grasp more valuable than gold
And we will speak of to our children when we're gold
There are baffles now, words being formed
There are lessons to be learned and later to be told
There are soldiers on the field who can't be [?]
There's a clarity now in our view
From the [?] we see [?] is old now is new
[?] we know what we must do
There is hope now in the wind
And the millions who are marching demanding we be kind
From the new lives the lifeboat might find
Verse 4
Save what you can
Behind us the old world in flames
Lower the lifeboats, take us to her
Steer the way
Verse 5
Save what you can
Lower the lifeboats, steer the way
Find shore [?] the horizon through the waves
Steer a clear coarse to a new world, to a new day
Save what you can
Lower the lifeboats, steer the way
