Whistling Past the Graveyard

We’re eating our seed corn
Burning all our tools
Future generations
Will regard us as fools

We build the tower higher
Fueled by so much debt
We’ll reach the end of the rope
But we haven’t quite yet

Our empire in decline
Hoist by our own petard
We line up for new iPhones (We watch the Real Housewives)
Whistling past the graveyard

Times are changing
We may be going down hard
We settle down for the Superbowl (We try to hit the powerball)
Whistling past the graveyard

Willfully ignorant
We confuse desire and fact
We’ve frozen the gears
Without the courage to act

We’re closing our eyes
To what’s going on
Don’t notice the train leaving
Till it’s already gone

It’s not too late
It’s not too late
This is my plea
It’s not too late
