The New Age 03:47
I shrug my shoulders at the new wave. Drink a little in the day. kick my feet up on a long chaise sleep off everything I can. Think I wound up in the wrong place When I stole home base. I never think about the long game When I need a place to land. It's all right to be bad sometimes To get a little peace of mind. There's a lightning on the water front. A fire in the west. And you, and I, I guess. I take up arms against the new age, smoke a little for the taste. I only travel at my own pace, stumbling down the barrio. I’m always wearing such a long face. Drifting out to space. While Serpent charmers in a failed state are playing on the radio. It's all right to be bad sometimes To get a little peace of mind. There's a black out in the gallery. A murmur in my chest. And you, and I, I guess.
She pines, the times, have been dramatic. Those smoke signals still rolling off the hill Down Sherman ave, where she lights her cigarette. It's been a while, but she still got time to kill. Every station plays the same old static. The backseat dreamers drive to drinking songs. Up the way, well, I used to know a quiet place. But someone had come and claimed it while I was gone. From the corner bars to the windowsill, those distant stars, and little wishing wells. She's wagging a crooked finger at the lord. Saying I’ll get mine, my friend, when you get yours. She pines and pines, but it ain't no-one's fault. There's just nothing here for your kind after all.
