Did we know so much then?
We thought we did
High on our bootstraps and other things
Nothing could stop us
Not even watching people die
They went down to the ground
We went up higher
Determined not to feel the pain
Never to feel the pain
Throw the dirt Snort the powder
Squash the feelings
We can live faster than the tears
If it starts to catch up
We’ll just drive faster down the road
The white lines will disappear faster past us, or up our nose
When the pain gets too great we change
We blossom, we have to change
Beggars asking for change for food, for drugs
We don’t judge, it could be us, maybe it was us
I have changed, but sometimes I beg
I beg for the pain to stop
