Pet Shop Boys Twentieth Century Lyrics

Oh, I learned a lesson

From the Twentieth Century

That I don’t think we can just dismiss

After one hundred years

Of inhumanity

The lesson that I learned was this:

Sometimes the solution

Is worse than the problem

Let’s stay together

Well I bought a ticket

To the revolution

And I cheered when the statues fell

Everyone came

To destroy what was rotten

But they killed off what was good as well

Sometimes the solution

Is worse than the problem

Let’s stay together

Stay with me

This century

Together we’re better

Oh, I learned a lesson

From the Twentieth Century

It may seem somewhat hit or miss

If you’ve certainty

’bout the way it’s all meant to be

The lesson that you need is this:

Sometimes the solution

Is worse than the problem

Let’s stay together
