When your life has all been token
You've grown weary - I'm not weary

When they want you to pretend
You may be old - but not so old
That I can't see
But see what's new and it's all the same to you

I took the old man back home
Safe with us to serenade
I have "no idea" he said, "no idea of what I'll do"
And talking less - it chases home
If you "want to" play real basic

Unless it's all alone
Unless it's all alone
You get preyed upon

To make you hate the things you might have done
It's the sun you want
