Lyrics
:

What on earth is this world a coming to
What on earth is going down
What on earth is happening to us
Is everything I feel poetic justice

What happened to our better world a comin'
What happened to our brave new vision
What happened to our dream of the future
Is everything I see poetic justice

Can you hear it on the ghetto
The spray cans speak
In confession whispered to a priest

Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic justic

(What you gonna do now)
What you gonna do now everythings changing
(What you gonna say now)
What you gonna say now it's all over
(Where you gonna hide)
Where you gonna hide now the storm's broken
Is every word I write poetic justice

Is this the armageddon?
Or the apocalypse?
Revenge for the judas kiss?

Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic justice

Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic justice
Written across my heart
Written inside my mind
Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice
Poetic Poetic Poetic Justice

Mike Peters Notes
:”I wrote this song during the early stages of experimenting in my chapel studio in Wales. In many ways this song forms a bridge between my work with The Alarm and now. The arrangement has stayed true to my initial demo, (which it might be interesting to release at some stage). I worked the song out with a string arrangement which was inspired by John Paul Jones’ work for Led Zeppelin. J.P.J. came to stay with me, with a view to producing the ‘Change’ album. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out, but his ideas stayed with me. The main guitar riff was there right from the start and this became the foundation of the song. The whole arrangement finally came together when Jules found a way of bridging the verse to the chorus. From a live point of view this song has always worked as an opening to the show and we decided to cut this song first in the studio. It seems only fitting that lyrically and musically it should be the first track on ‘Breathe’.”
