    General CommentYou live your life. You start out young and optimistic and full of life and laughter and dreams. Life eventually beats you down. Life becomes one damned thing after another: disappointment, illness, heartbreak, loss, anxiety, uncertainty, depression, conflict.

    At some point you realize you are getting old; you are set in your ways; you lack energy; you are beaten down; you don't have the energy to change things because you've been in the lowlands too long, and time is running out.

    This is a song about growing old.
