When you were young and dumb Roller coasters were so much fun Now they're just metaphor The abstract feelings of rich and poor At best we'll be like the rest You'll be disappointed and I'll be depressed But we can still have it all I'll be the supermarket you'll be the mall We're raised on bad jokes and puns Re-runs and men dressed as nuns Trash can be treasure they say But too much of it ruins my day At best we'll be like the rest You'll be disappointed and I'll be depressed But we can still have it all You'll be the supermarket I'll be the mall You believe in nothing you say But there's a label for that anyway You can't live your life excused The minute you find out the awful news At best we'll be like the rest You'll be disappointed and I'll be depressed But we can still have it all You'll be the supermarket I'll be the mall All our plaques are plastic colored bronze And all our brown hairs have turned to blonde And I remember when the things we feared Weren't so disruptively near All our plaques are plastic colored bronze And all our brown hairs have turned to blonde And I remember when the things we feared Weren't so disruptively near And now they're here

Getting paid just about every other day It's going well As far as i can tell But what does that say About every other day Yeah every other day A parents day trip and a green hatchback I'm jumping in Not believing That that was us Yeah that was us Yeah that was us You moved to the woods to grow your own food Well that sounds cool But it's sort of rude For a communist Yeah what about us Oh what about us Getting paid just about every other day It's going well As far as i can tell But what does that say About every other day Yeah every other day

Old and Glad 04:06
Feelings are pretend Unless the feeling offends You or your mom Or your neighbor's dog tom And by five o'clock things are rolling along The six o'clock news the news is old By ten or eleven its told and it's told And i can't believe that people listen To all these things that just happened Human interest is boring as hell Bad news is news that all turns out well And i will not give in To feelings that offend A foreign key to an open door And this nagging feeling We've been here before A heart attack In a Cadillac And Billy Joel Where is your soul Hackensack or Patterson Let's go to a place where my father has lived Not Beverly Hills a spaceship on mars Taking pills and lusting for cars And i will be old and glad A thought parade on the fourth of July And a hot dog prompts the question of why We pry and poke selectively joke About the things we cannot decide And i want to be an American guy With eagles that soar and a mouth open wide Singing the praise of American ways Hourglass shapes and a litany of pies I will be old and glad I will be old and glad I will be old and glad
