lyrics

Not Allowed to Drive
(Spain)

I used to go outside
I used to feel like I was alive
Now I’m not allowed to drive
No I’m not allowed to drive anymore

I don’t remember why
I don’t remember that much anymore
Something changed, the men came
They made a law
Now we’re not allowed to drive
No we’re not allowed to drive anymore

And when they say it’s a bright new day
I have to take their word
‘Cos from my eyes, it’s all just lies
All distinction’s been blurred

And maybe they’ll give us back our rights
If we put up a fight
Or maybe they’ll just dig bigger holes
Bury us in the night

I have to stay in here
Watch the stream that keeps us in fear
And when they knock on my door
I can’t pretend I’m not home anymore
'Cos we’re not allowed to drive
No we’re not allowed to drive anymore

No we’re not allowed to drive
No we’re not allowed to do much of anything
Anymore
Anymore
