"bon voyage" was something that I once said

and eventually regretted.
Well, it's come up again...and I wonder if
The same mistakes I used to make
Could be remade.
Cause "I've been through this before"
Well I've said that too.
There's just so much that we can fake
Before we break ourselves into-two.

twenty two. the years can hardly catch up
With the years of playing catch up.
Must there always be a catch?
What we really want is just ahead,
Just over that hill.
And the more I learn, the less I try to climb.
The more we change, the more we wish
We stayed the same,
The more we try to fake ourselves into beliefs:
"the grass must be green somewhere!"

twenty two-the years can hardly catch up,
The years are playing catch up.
Must there always be a catch?

    General Commenti think he's just talking about getting older and even though he's moved on from certain aspects/problems through his life, they have made him bitter and yearnful for for something better, but doubting the existance of there being "green grass" on the other side

    General Comment"what you really want is just ahead, just over that hill/the more i learn the less i try to climb/the more we change the more we wish we'd stay the same/the more we try to fake ourselves into believing/the grass must be green somewhere!"

    how horrible it must be to turn 22 and come to the realization that life is pointless.
