lyrics

why am I so old?
when did I get so old?
when I wanted nothing to do with you
why am I so old?
when did I get so old?
please tell me that wasn’t me
(living my life)

“innocence is only lost, never gained
you can’t go back in the same way you came
the door locks behind your head
I heard it click in the washroom
when I saw a mouth foaming red
back when I was confused for the police
and chose to stop a body running naked in the streets
over the only crutch that never bruised me
now I’ve broken a leg and all my help is out of reach
I tried to fill a void instead of thinking about what it means
was I too late or was that just meant to be?
I let all my love spoil into hate, you see
it’s not the past I want to erase, no
these memories they they ripples away
and divorce themselves from truth
so if all of us are just the sum of experience
then our bases are rotting
and I want to be new “
