I understand things get out of hand
And there’s not another chance
So why moralise, why moralise?

I understand things get out of hand
And there’s not another chance
So why criticise?

Meaning

Equals's official lyric explanation


So, similar to the first verse, I suppose, it’s perhaps a comment on, sort of, a cynical maturity whereby you stop having some sort of lofty values and morals that guide you - so that’s why I say “why moralise?” because things do get out of hand.

So it’s, kind of, accepting a certain level of hedonism, I suppose, and transgression in life and music and thinking, “well, it’s not that pure anyway so you can’t moralise about it” - he says sat in front of a Google screen. Sort of quite appropriate really.
