It's time to bust you free, my friend
You've suffered long enough
Hell-bent, crazy, fucking lazy,
Wishing I was young

Oh won't you take me from this sterile place
And travel me 'til I'm dead
'Cause years ago, I played this show,
That's all I think of in my head

You're the wiser, you're the wiser one than me

I'm at a home for shattered lives and I gather
Dust beyond my age
And I'm sitting years and trimming fears
Of life in the present day

You're the wiser, you're the wiser one than me

When I was young and oh so full of it
Well people were talking, I could hardly know

Time to bust your chains, alright,
We got too far ahead
The years I held so dear are over
And I'm living here instead

I'm the wiser, I'm the wiser one than me

    General CommentThe ravages of time, and realizing about all that glorious "wisdom" we all get from it. When we realize that we didn't know a damn thing we were talking about when we were younger.

    Bitchin' song, though.
