London's foggy and nobody can see themselves

in every cafe there's a genius who doesn't sell

in every pocket there's a portal to another world

in every subway, there's evidence society's failed

in every single hub there's a firewall,

there's always something floating on a waterfall

we're living in a paradise yet we want more,

ah shit, I still want more

 

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

 

we're at the bottom of the morning standing tall

we're the pebble by the rock that made the mountain fall

we're sleeping at the wheel driving through a wall

we're as ugly as we are beautiful

and the millionares are laughing out at sea

another junkie cures cancer in his dream

another banker drinks coffee with his wife

another gamble ends his life

 

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

 

we were born into comfort

and we will never be the same

forgive us lord, for we know not why we're leaving

and we will never be the same

we've lost it all and we're blindly smiling

and we will never be the same

my children's children will taste my disaster

they will never be the same 

 

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

we are a poison

and England is our ghost town

 

and we can't turn back now
