This spirit is holding us down
Pushing our shoulders in deep.
Pulling us through the light,
Toasted our backs in the sun.
And I'm waiting to hear my next call
We got our bodies pressed in against the wall.
Now our days are set straight,
We're seeing it all eye to eye.
The balance is still chasing after,
Just hanging on as you walk by.
And they say it's only natural,
They say we're coming along just fine.
But I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
And I know, I know this won't last, a second longer than it has.
Children you will, be cared for at once,
And wanted our arms like, promises plucked from above.
This world is only getting smaller,
The choices aren't ours to be made.
I'm into wasting my days,
I feel like wasting my days.
And I've seen what's coming on,
And I can't say it will all be fine.
And I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
No I can't help thinking we grew up too fast
And I know, I know, I know this won't last,
A second longer than it has.
