I’ve seen it before everyone seems eloquently bored
the laughter stops and starts again too forced
So what’s the use in trying anymore, nothing makes you stop and notice
(and where did you go)
when did you give up and decide you had enough?
in the last five years of your life what have you done?
you feel pray to the throne they passed on
run your mouth precious little thought while others drown
your standards put you high above the crowd
but your safety net wont let you hit the ground
and nothing makes you stop and notice
when did you give up and decide you had enough?
in the last five years of your life what have you done
except shine the throne you sit on?
reflections of your pretty face betray a soul you cant replace
at the end of the day
the high horse that you rode for so long has trampled you and now moved on
but you’ll never change…

    General CommentBut you'll never change...

    Cause you're lying to yourself,
    And when did you become so boring?
    Just stop trying to predict you're right,
    You lost touch before you started out.
    You were never cool,
    I was not impressed so tell me...

    When did you give up and decide you had enough?
    In the last five years of your life what have you done?
    Broken down the throne you sit on.

    General CommentI definitely meant pretend not predict.

    Probably one about GW, who's been in office for 5 years hence the "For the last 5 years"

    General CommentYeah, another shot at the prez. No doubt there. The "throne" passed on is the presidency, passed on from Herbert-Walker to W. "Your standards put you high above the crowd but your safety net won't let you hit the ground" means W can say/do whatever he wants without fear because of his political royalty coupled with the republican congress. Yessir, Mr. Gray does not like King George II.
