I've walked this earth

I think I know what the future's worth
Even though my eyes are fossilised
Like a dinosaur I walk this earth
With my ageing bones and spreading girth
 
I'm all dried up and I'm lacking mirth
I've choked on lies once prophesised
I think I know what the future's worth
Even though my eyes are fossilised
 
I can't believe that you still give birth
I look at them kids and see the end
This world it suffers a complete dearth
Of old fertile land and fresh green turf
 
From in the valleys and to the firths
I see identity coalesce and blend
I can't believe that you still give birth
I look at them kids and see the end
 
Was anything ever new and unused?
Or was I always a bloody fool
Has this world been fully abused,
Or did we save a small part for you?
 
You're mission is, dig up something new
Prove to me there still are some jewels
Was anything ever new and unused?
Or was I always a bloody fool
 
Was anything ever new and unused?
Or was I always a bloody fool
