Post Tour Stress Disorder (Bttfiv 1991) - Atomic Potato

Well this isn't an obsession with the past
It's just some major dissatisfaction with where I'm at
Taking a week off no computer games or television
Just biking, playing music, drinking beer and eating pizza
Cell phone doesn't work do my friends care where I'm at?
As I ride along the river getting tired feeling fat
S_ck it up and push on there's no time to b_tch and moan
Bigger problems still like car and student loans

So much time we waste these days it's really quite a shame
We could all be working harder instead of sitting around being lame
I speak of who I was different not so long ago
To make things right you have to learn how to let it go

20 years ago
We weren't so split up by the internet
No twitter feeds or facebook reading
For hours and hours on end
Gas was hella lot cheaper
Life's outlook less bleaker
You had to turn on the radio
To find some tunes
And they got a hold of you

Fidgeting in my chair
Relaxing in conditioned air
Well I'd call it relaxing if I wasn't nursing these 3rd degree
Sunburns all over my arms
The pain is quite unbearable but I'm sure it could be worse
I could be letting my brain stew
Just watching reruns but at this time there's nothing new

Oversaturation of entertainment in our lives
Babies from the 80s growing up and getting wise
Feeling numb and getting dumb may work out fine for a few
But wanted more than what I've got so sick I need to start anew

20 years ago
We weren't so split up by the internet
No twitter feeds or facebook reading
For hours and hours on end
Gas was hella lot cheaper
Life's outlook less bleaker
You had to turn on the radio
To find some tunes
And they got a hold of you
