What you gonna do when they call you a bum?
Say, what you gonna do when it’s time to grow up,
and what you gonna do, gonna be an adult.
I don’t know can you give me a clue?

What you gonna do cause you joked through school?
Yeah, what you gonna do, did you fail where you tried,
and what you gonna do cause the well’s run dry?
I don’t know can you give me a clue?

What you gonna do cause you can’t go home?
Say, What you gonna do cause you’re living alone?
What you gonna do cause the money’s cut off?
Well, I don’t know can you give me a clue?
I don’t know exactly what to do.

There’s nothing beyond the horizon
Cause time never met demand
And everything that you have eyes on
You see floating out of your hands.

What you gonna do cause you can’t pay for school?
Yeah, what you gonna do, just ignoring all the rules,
Say, what you gonna do, you just turned 18.
Well, I don’t know can you give me a clue?

What you gonna do cause time’s off your side?
Say, what you gonna do, reached the end of the slide
Yeah, what you gonna do feeling unqualified
I don’t know can you give me a clue.

What you gonna do ‘cause the good times stopped?
What you gonna do with the next ten years,
and what you gonna do with a new found fear?
I don’t know can you give me a clue?
I don’t know exactly what to do.

There’s nothing beyond the horizon.
Because time never met demand
And everything that you have eyes on
you see floating out of your hands

What you gonna do when they call you a bum?
Say, what you gonna do when it’s time to grow up?
Yeah, what you gonna do, gonna be an adult?
I don’t know, can you give me a clue?

What you gonna do cause you can’t go home?
Yeah, what you gonna do cause you’re living alone?
And what you gonna do cause the money's cut off?
I don’t know can you give me a clue.
I don’t know exactly what to do.
