All around you slow decay
Wanna feel the sun of a new day
Forget all the chances lost
Shedding innocence like falling dust
All the things you learned too young
The songs you knew but never sung
Waited a long time and wasted more
Forgotten what you waited for

Excuse me ma'am for being so rude
Feels like 100 years of solitude
My mind is numb but my houth's okay
And you can listen or walk away

Nos solution's built to last
Just petty scores to settle past
The N.M.E. was nothing to you
And the maker, well, the maker of who
This Walkman generation
In search of sweet sedation
Shile forests choke under a 'lever sky
And the Exxon birds that'll never fly


We tried we cried we fell we lied
This life's like a white knuckle ride
Crack babies born too young
And L.A. kids who dance to the gun
So forget this so called dirt of mine
It's just the dust and diesel of passing time
It's all around you-a tragedy, look
So forget the cover and read the book
