- LyricsWhat do you mean it's time, time for me to
grow up? I don't want any part. It's right
to follow my heart. The new kids ran, ran
out the back door fast, and the bands
that came before they had their noses in
- LyricsYesterday you were on my back just to get my time
I guess it's not as precious as it seems

- LyricsSitting down on a couch, you watch, a
fucking slave to a TV show. You thought

did you learn? You don't even know, and
I kid myself but my eyes are glued on this
