lyrics

im singing as loud as yesterday
and though my voice is giving out after years of abuse and packs a day ill keep screaming
like ive got something to say
and the gaslights keep coming on, and were all loosely hanging on like theres nothing wrong
I blew my paycheck on alcohol like there’s nothing wrong

but my hearts still in what I write
and my eyes burn in the dark please convince me its worth my time
and I know I am a guy
whose position on the punk to poser spectrum was disappointing in its prime
im no cooler than you but that’s just fine

but I keep holding on to my high hopes for this generation
but im too scared to stand for anything ‘cept self preservation
if everything’s dripped in irony then how the hell can we agree
and show the world the range of what the form can be?
so shut up and make history

you think you’re running out of time
and the rate getting older seems exponential as your 20s pass you by
as long as love is on your mind
then the jaws of time recede and you can close your eyes and your standing next to me
let’s keep drinking from that well while it’s still free

but I keep holding on to my high hopes for this generation
its getting cold out in the periphery of the teenage wasteland
and sincere as you may be, however calmly that you sleep
there’s no fire for you to feed, and there’s seldom company
if you’ve got the balls to dream
