Lyrics

The colour of distance has gone
The rise and rise of the spectacle has won
Airmail† stretched out across the sea
The leaves and grass were falling in the breeze

What happened to the blue generation
Dreaming on a once-great notion
Tear-proof and longing for saviour
All abandoned, doomed to failure

What happened to the blue generation
Dreaming on a once-great notion
Tear-proof and longing for saviour
All abandoned, doomed to failure

The pace of change has left us all behind
I lie in bed and see remembered skies
When the pen runs dry, so does life
The body breaks and so we compromise

What happened to the blue generation
Dreaming on a once-great notion
Tear-proof and longing for saviour
All abandoned, doomed to failure

What happened to the blue generation
Dreaming on a once-great notion
Tear-proof and longing for saviour
All abandoned, doomed to failure

What happened to the blue generation
So happy in a wrong rejection
Dedicated without hesitation
Paid the price for a pretty persuasion
