Let’s Pretend

Let’s pretend
That it’s all gone away
Let’s pretend
That everything is fine
Let’s pretend
And let’s go and make hay
Let’s pretend
That all is now sunshine

Close your eyes
To what everyone knows
Close your eyes
To what is happening
Close your eyes
And away it will all go
Close you eyes
Until truth is biting

Block your ears
To the figures that rise
Block your ears
To the struggling breath
Block your ears
To the desperate cries
Block your ears
To the high toll of death

Turn away
After all it’s not you
Turn away
From the consequences
Turn away
And who cares if you do?
Turn away
And hide in pretences

Let’s pretend
That it’s all gone away
Let’s pretend
That everything is fine
Let’s pretend
And let’s go and make hay
Let’s pretend
That all is now sunshine…
