Sometimes I think about the choices we had to make.
Love lost and wishes gone down the drain
All my childhood friends passing in parade,
growing fat, quiet and hopeless.
Why am I in such a state?
Still questions unanswered...
You who say you see things straight,
why can't you see things my way?
We used to sit around all day and night
and make plans for tomorrow.
I know you still sit there and ponder,
but somehow you gave up on your dreams.

So tell me what did you expect?
To stay sixteen forever?
With your smalltown punkrock rebellion,
all you have now left is fear, and...

Dirty words, in front of your television,
Drunken slurs, about a long lost vision.
I saw the sun dive into the Pacific and I thought about you.
I broke my arm in a fight in Del Fuego and I thought about you.
Well, I know about your pacts and defences.
How you speak roughly of a misguided youth,
Oh how misguided can love be?
So tell me if I'm wrong. When I see hunger in you eyes.
You don't know what you're lookin for, do you?
It's just never enough...
So build a castle of safe, modern product.
Build a tower of grief.
Don't weep, don't waste your tears,
Save yourself for the 9'o clock news and...
