I’m so sorry I’m not down tonight
But all my friends have lost their minds
And whats more…
…I’m not happy here anymore.

We should’ve stayed at home tonight.
All the bright lights and company
are not what I need.

Its just the same as it was before.
Same faces there to hit the floor.
My legs have carried me far.
There’s still strength enough for one more.
So lets carry on
And dance to all the same songs.
Like back when we were young
And nights like this would fade to one.

So lets get out of here.
We’ve done all we can.
This place is not dead.
So when will this night end?

We’ll do it all again,
Next Friday night.
This Picture-postcard modernity.

    General CommentI must admit I wasn't too down with the title of this song before I counted it out. I think the writer is surely using a double meaning between the numbers of timing and respective ages he's reflecting on. He's thinking about how they've grown so much much but progressed so little, and feeling discouraged by that.
    I'd like to point out that its one thing to use odd timings and cut/paste beats in songs, it's quite another to make it sound a gorgeous as this, every member of this band gets an A+ in my book for techinical skill, Not to mention writing and arrangment. Plus draws spirographic images on my eyelids when I close them.
