"Late-Century Dream" as written by Laura Jane Ballance, James August Wilbur, Jonathan Patrick Wurster and Ralph Lee Mccaughan....
Well you never did like the way the road stretched out
Never knowing where all these oily black threads are tied
Under the lights of a spaceship landed
On the ice of a curve unsanded

There's a clover leaf
That'll wreck your life
And everybody lives in a knot
Everybody lives in a knot

Everybody's trying to make space around what they think they've got
Everybody lives in a knot
Everybody lives in a knot
Everybody's trying to make space around what they think they've got

It was never better
It was never any better
But a nation is not soothed
When they tell her

And the doctors all look shocked
But everybody grows up weened on some sick late century dream
Or the happy face on a shirt smiling "shop till you drop," yeah
Everybody lives in a knot

Everybody lives in a knot
Everybody's trying to make space around what they think they've got
Everybody's trying to hold on to a dream even as they watch it rot
Ta da da da
