21 - The Posies

there's been plenty written about
things to avoid on the way
i don't want to turn the clock back
i just want to recognize
all the outward telltale signs of age

so you think 21 is gonna be a good year?
well whoever gave you such an idea?
incense and pessimism can't invade the temporary trust
the dream can take over the wheel
and you can drink untill you rut
but you've yet to imbide one ounce of thought

so you think 21 is all you have to live for?
(?)well i let those people stick their nose up(?)
looking forward looking back you see everything you're not
looking forward to the back

just because it's legible doesn't mean you can read it
there is no time like the effervescent
there's a man on the bus crying cus he's too dumb to feel
don't take his place
for a freedom that's imagined and you thought it was real cos now you've come of age and your ears are starting to squel

so you think 21 is gonna last forever?
and all of your friends can grow old without you
looking forward looking back you see everything you're not
looking forward to the back
looking forward to the back
looking forward to the black
