Onward and upward, so the story goes
The page is turned, the numbers climb to where we'll never know
All my great events will surely come to pass
Why does it feel like I'm coming in last?

For so long the blueprint of society has hurried me along
For so long (the concrete life)
The concrete life just out of reach and where did I go wrong?

Older and fatter, so the story goes
More kids, more cars, no nights of ours
And where did my life go?

All my great events will surely come to pass
I only wish they didn't come and go so fast


Onward (Onward!)
Upward (Upward!)
Where did I go wrong? (Wrong!)
