Nothing's Left (When You're Always Right)

from by Matt de Neef

lyrics

Tell us how the world should be,
Show us what we cannot see.
I'm sure there's an easy solution,
A way to cut through the confusion.

Pin your colours to the mast,
Fight for truth until the last.
Coz no one knows better than you do
And no one else has a clue.

There's nothing left for us to choose.
We'll disregard those other views.
The world is simpler than we ever knew,
So tell us what we need to do.

Every story has two sides,
But only one of them provides ...
A way to cut through the delusion,
(That) there's more than just one conclusion.

Leave your questions at the door,
(With) what you thought you knew before.
Coz no one knows better than we do,
And/Yeah no one else has a clue.

There's nothing left for us to choose.
We'll disregard those other views.
The world is simpler than we ever knew,
So tell us what we need to do.

Tell us, we really ought to know
Tell us, you're helping us to grow.
Tell us, why we shouldn’t just believe what we heard,
Tell us, we're hanging on every word.

Tell us, tell us, we're waiting on you,
Tell us, what should we be doing?
Tell us, we're jealous of all you know,
Tell us, exactly where to go.

There's nothing left for us to choose.
We'll disregard those other views.
The world is simpler than we ever knew,
So tell us what we need to do.
