When you were young, did you see the world
as full of greed and willing girls?
Did you raise hell throughout the day
and maybe do some lines to stay awake?

When you were young and on your bike
did the wind shape your youthful eyes?
Did it shelter them so you could clearly see
your innocence die before 23?

There were bumps in the road that you could have avoided.
But you rode on through them, endowed by your choices.

If there's anything that you take from this
it's that all your dread is impermanent
Keep that in mind when you feel the weight
of work's burden and all those hopeless days

Days you thought would never end have come and gone again and again.


from A Lunatic For a Friend, released May 27, 2014
