DECAY

DECAY

WE NEVER GREW UP,

WE JUST GREW OLD,

A LIFE IN A TEA CUP,

NOT IN A BEER MUG.

 

AND THE DRUGS HAVE CHANGED,

FROM PSYCHEDELIC TO PAINKILLER.

WE THE BOOMERS CREATED THE GAME,

YET THE X’ERS AND MILLENNIALS SCOFF…

AND CALL FOR OUR EARLY DEMISE.

 

WE’VE SEEN OFF APARTHEID,

WE BROKE THROUGH THE WALL,

WE BURIED THATCHER AND REAGAN,

ONLY TO BE TOLD WE’RE DINOSAURS…

AND THE LITTLE SPONGERS

CAN’T EVEN FIND A PLACE TO LIVE.

 

YOUR REVOLT IS TO CRY FOR THE STATUS QUO,

YOU NEVER SEEK TO SMASH THE HIERARCHY,

YOU JUST WANT TO BLAME US,

FOR YOUR INADEQUACIES,

I DON’T BLAME YOU THOUGH,

WE WERE SO BUSY TRYING TO STAY YOUNG,

YOU NEVER HAD ADULT ROLE MODELS…

AND YOU NEVER WILL.

 

NO YOU NEVER WILL.

WE DECAY…

BUT NEVER AGE.

 

DALE ‘M’
