Here I sit in idle envy
T.V. show still holds me in
thin steel creases my (??)
begging till the end

And then it hits me
and then I see, then I see
today my love, we shall let the world slide
for we, will never be
younger again

Well, I'm tired of the ladies and the stupid excuses
sitting on my ass makes me feel useless
earth accelerate, hurry up and turn that's right
I'm starting to burn

Well I get kinda mad like a (??) crawdad
it's time to throw down, too bad so sad
don't step to me when things don't go as you planned
no, I don't give a damn

And then it hits me
and then I see, then I see
today my love, we shall let the world slide
for we, will never be
younger again, younger again
younger again, younger again

It's easier to hurt than heal
hypocrites they make me ill
young men yearn to turn the tables
that too is a sin

And then it hits me
and then I see, then I see
today my love, we shall let the world slide
for we, will never be
younger again

We all look to the end of a certain social stress
i'm down for that day, but don't forget the progress
of wakening things up the passion understanding
here's to the youth who aren't afraid to put a hand in

And then it hits me
and then I see, then I see
today my love, we shall let the world slide
for we, will never be
younger again, younger again
younger again, younger again

    General CommentIt means to be pissed off at the world and come to an epiphany, and let it all go and drift away, because one day we'll all die and we're wasting life when we allow life to get the best of us.

    General Commentthis is true 311, and hardly anyone knows about the omaha sessions, so if you havent heard it yet GO GET IT, it is seriously some of the best music ive heard in a long time, and this song is one of my favorites on the cd, let the world slide

    General Comment"Today my love we shall let the world slide for we will never be younger again" is a message 311 loves to send out to people. In their song 8:16 am they repeat the message saying:

    "today my love we shall let the world slide
    turn off the ringer and just glide
    for we shall never be younger again
    then what do you see"

    The song is pretty self explanatory just by the chorus, but there's a few messages in this song just as there are in many 311 songs. All are pretty self explanatory like:

    "We all look to the end of a certain social stress
    i'm down for that day, but don't forget the progress
    of wakening things up the passion understanding
    here's to the youth who aren't afraid to put a hand in"

    311 shout out to the youth who look to better the world right there.
