14 to 41
Start blind, end up dumb
You're 16, you're 23, you're 32, you're 41

Gonna leave it all behind
and not say sorry
Yea, you are always right
So why worry

You learn to steal and lie to friends, you trust no one
My Birthday's comin' around again

I'm waiting for the bell to ring, I'm always older
Pressures and folds of fat and lipstick-stained calendars
hide under marriage porcelain
that I'm falling over
My birthday, my Birthday
my worst day
My Birthday's comin around again

14 to 41
Start blind, end up dumb
You're 16, you're 23, you're 32, you're 41
You're all those things
and then you're none
You're through all that
you've just begun

    General Commentomg, why has nobody discussed this awesome song?!
    truly genius, i reccommend the acoustic version (which is impossible to get for some reason). It just says it all, ageing-that cruel process from youth to incontinence- just proves how life is the ever deteriorating, everyday getting nearer to popping our clogs, and why the fuck do we celebrate birthdays with such joy?
    'you're all those things and then you're none' -jeez ppl, wake up!!!! how can u NOT comment on such a blunt thought provoking line??! we are all those things we think are so important and then we just fucking end! i mean isnt that like the ultimate!?? oh its sooo depressing but so goooooooood!!!!!!!
    I also get some cryptic vibe about this song; 14-41, like the UN resolution re: invasion of iraq?! obviously just a coincidence, but makes it somewhat more poignant and... hell why should i explain myself, i mean nobodys going to reply to this anyway so yes, i hold it as VERY poignant and VERY IMPORTANT! HA! well, forgive me for not explaining myself...ok...im rambling now, erm need caffeine...gdnite, wow this is like im self-monologuing now..
    toodles,
