Are we idling and wasting time?
Or just turning blind eyes
So we won't see
That every year since Plan 9
I've become less inclined
To believe this is me

This dime a dozen song and dance
Has been freezing my hands
I can't write a thing
You can't win over the ones
You sing about in song
Cause all my friends are growing up
But I can make a young girl cry
Well that's not what I had in mind

I can't stop thinking about the other side
I know that if I get there then I'll make it to late night
And I'll finally have found my way home

We're always dreaming of lies
We dream away our lives
But that's what life is
Where we forget who we are
We drive expensive cars
Home to our beautiful wife and kids
Well I don't know what that is

I can't stop thinking about the other side
I know that if I get there then I'll finally get it right
Then I'll finally be able to tell that I remember it well
The way I've lived in my life

I saw a middle aged man a magazine in his hand
Plane and pilot for the child in him too afraid to land
This had me completely drained
He doesn't own a plane
I'm sure and won't ever

This got me thinking that life
Is just too short here to waste
On the thought that someday I'll see my face
On every magazine and even on TV
I'm 21 now, I started at 13

(Don't be so cynical
There's breath of life in this world
In love and sex and the decisions we made growing up
Don't be so cynical
There's breath of life in this world
Your family loves you
And you've got a few good friends)
