lyrics

I wouldn’t be afraid of getting old
If there was more to look forward to
Than cancer and conversation
And I wouldn’t be so tired of youth
If there was maybe more to do
Than wait in anticipation
But at what point do you stop fanning the flames
And start putting them out, putting them out?
All of the answers I will have to question for myself,
For myself, for myself
There’s no need to panic here
Why don’t we come to our senses
Or we’ll build our fences up too high
Let’s tone down the rhetoric
Why don’t we come to our senses
Or we’ll build our fences up too high
For us to get over ourselves
At what point do you stop pulling up stakes
And start putting them down, putting them down?
All of the questions I will have to answer for myself,
For myself, for myself
But I’m on the wrong side of 25 now
Failure is frequent the further I get from 24
I’m on the wrong side of 25 now
Who has the patience for these conflagrations
When they demand more?
