We're out of touch and we're standing on the shoulders of the poor
And we're lonely and in love with our phones.
I guess it's telling that all my favorite bands
came out of the basements of the upper-middle class
And High Art is for the 1%
Writing songs about writing songs
the words get harder as I get old.
And in the face of all that's wrong
I am resigned and I head on home.
Longing for that hopeful anger that I felt when I was young.
Now there's just a steady hum where there used to be a song.
And have I got my hand in the ruin of everything?
Am I ruining everything?
Link in Profile:
We have no patience.
And we think we know everything cuz we know how to find out online-
Maybe that's the same thing now...
Still I wonder if our brains are changing
And if so, has something been lost?
I guess that's just my age talking- clinging for relevance as
part of the last generation to remember our lives before the
"World Wide Web"
Before the texts
Before we took our phones to bed.
After Talons', I still had a lot to say
but what used to be black and white..
blah... blah... it's all the same shit, now I'm just a different age.
Driving home, eating Wendy's, feeling sad about feeling tired.
When out on a raft, how many people are gonna die tonight?
Trying to get to the EU and if they do, they're just gonna send them back.
So we just sigh and close the window
otherwise, we'd have to act.
