Lyrics

So everything has changed now
That our golden years are through
And strange events have shaken
The beliefs we all held to
We were lucky to bear witness
To the longest loudest boom
But you're noticing the difference
Now we're huddled in one room

All our brilliant minds
They fell asleep on the job
So they missed all the signs
What were we paying them for

Yeah I guess we kind of got used to it
But the good life's gone for good
Now you're gonna have to get used to it
Like you never guessed you would

There were people giving credit
Where credit wasn't due
And the ones who end up paying
Are the likes of me and you
We can't go through this adjustment
Without a small degree of pain
It's like giving up a substance
That's been rushing through our veins

Better tighten your belt
Put a stop to those sprees
It's not about what you want now
It's about what you need

Now you're gonna have to get used to it
Cos the game has changed for good
Yeah you're gonna have to get used to it
Like you never thought you could

All the glossy dreams in the magazines
They are fading on the page
And the shopping malls and designer stores
Will be relics of our age

Now the temperature is climbing
And the seas are rising too
Soon this pretty little island
Will be shrinking under you

You heard it said that a change
Is as good a rest
You'll want to know what they meant now
As you look at this mess

Used to it
Now the weather's changed for good
Yeah you're gonna have to get used to it
Like you never dreamt you would
