The Young Idealists

Cole, Lloyd
I know I said I favoured peaceful resolution
But that was when we were the young idealists
The young idealists
Raging through the coffee shops and bars
Make believe the world was really ours
Still supposing we could make a difference

Then we bought into the neocon economic dream
And we were trading in futures we believed in
The young idealists
Careering through the markets to the mall
Venturing that we could have it all
Still supposing we could make a difference

And then the markets fall
And the heavens open
And there's no synergy at all
The synergy is broken

So maybe now I'd take that wholesale revolution
We were talking about
Maybe now I'd take a future we can breathe in
The young idealists
Raging through the forests and the streams
Breaking into your laboratories
Still supposing we could make a difference

I never dreamed I'd want a slogan on my people mover
But that was when we were the young idealists
