lyrics

We saw our old friends at the party last night
Strangers and rivals even got along all right.
New young scenesters came to have one last look
I wonder how much they’re like us and if their dreams will see them through?

I wonder if RP boys still drink real hard?
I wonder if Sebastopol girls still serve whiskey in their front yard?

Chain smoking cigarettes, fighting over the last beers
I guess they helped to calm our fears.
Strange how we spent out best years:

Living in garages
On the wrong side of town.
Listen close and you might hear the sound
Of young losers playing loud.

Some thought they could change the world with Hope and good deeds
Not yet understanding it always bites the hand that feeds.

Somehow the images we cultivated
Are now a box of fliers and tattoos, half faded.

Chain smoking cigarettes, fighting over the last beers
I guess they helped to calm our fears.
Strange how we spent out best years:

Possessed like daredevils, we all climbed into vans
Racing out across the southlands
Just trying to make some strangers raise their hands.

Hey kid don’t get too enamored, with you and all your social friends
Ten years and none of this’ll matter, it’s how this party always seems to end

I live so different now, it makes me wonder how
Any of this ever happened at all.
