And they say your life was marred
And you were wondering if it would ever start

Sunlight on a razor blade
Three different souls and the lives they made
I grew up in the 80s in the palisades
I was listening to Devo
And everybody catered to your needs
Were voted "most likely to succeed"
Holly came out, and Billy got paid
But Jenny got pregnant the first time she got laid

All my rage sits inside
And even the finest things are leaving you hollow
And all my days left behind
And even the finest things are leaving you hollow

Cut to an interior view:
Holly married well, but so did you
One was black, one was blue
I was watching the days go by
Could you be seeing a silly dream
Where Billy lives on Prozac and nicotine?
Holly got a G.E.D. living in maternity
Nursing her broken heart for the love she lost


And the sky is blue, but so are you
Mary takes a drage off a cigarette
And the stereo is coming up behind her
Like she needs something to remind her
That life is richer in a minor key
Bill and Holly disagree, but I don't think so
