Adrian Mather - The Old Days Of Yesteryear lyrics

I can still recall every last name on the list
As it stretches all over the gate
When all of those faces are gone
And it seems like there's no-one to try and explain what went wrong

(chorus 1)
But you say that it's fine
The old days of yesteryear hiding the ones of today
So its never a crime
To die for your country and live in the old-fashioned way
It's so easy to drink it away in a glass
It's so easy to hide it away in the past

The morning light flickers through every door
As the poets are told that they're wrong
Writers are silenced and singers complain
That the censorship laws have ruined each one of their songs

(chorus 2)
But you say that's alright
The old days of yesteryear finding a role in today
So now its just fine
To never look forward and live in the old-fashioned way
It's so easy to think that the present will last
It's so easy to hide every day in the past

And every poster tells you what you're fighting
It's so wrong, it's so wrong
Uncle Sam will be there right behind you
It's so wrong, it's so wrong

The times are a-changing, or so you been told
Since two tower blocks fell to the ground
But now every nation won't try to find out
That there's something within them to wipe all their prejudice out

(chorus 3)

But you say that's OK
The old day's of yesteryear shaping the ones of today
When you're king for a day
Building the camps that we've seen in another decade
It's so easy to think it won't happen again
It's so easy ignoring the ones that you've saved
It's so easy to think that the present will last
It's so easy to hide it away in the past
It's so easy to drink it away in a glass
It's so easy to live every day in the past
