I can recall the warm youth of a summer day
The sweetest lemonade
The darkest game arcade
And billy had a yearning in the corner of his mind
It moved him secretly
It moved him powerfully
But prescience was lacking and the present was all
And his aptitudes were carelessly wasted
And challenging life with the abandon of a fool
He squandered the hours of his day

Then darkness and disorder slapped him sharply in the face
It hit him like a friend
Struck something deep within
He couldn't break the chain of slow decay that seemed to drag him
