Long Road Ahead

Some people can turn their conscience on and off
like Ray Davies’ Yo-Yo.
Not me. You?

we got a long road ahead
settle down. settle back. settle in.
don’t you know we’re gonna have to work until we’re dead?
we’ve got such a long road ahead

full of naked feelings
illumination
you know all those things you just can’t teach

There you go again
laughing at real life
I guess that’s the way things will always be

it’s been a long slow descent
energy lost. energy found. energy spent.
you know it takes years to make an overnight collapse
it’s been a long slow descent

we got a long road ahead
don’t look down. don’t look back. don’t fit in.
let’s have the last good time with what little we got left
we got a long road ahead

screw cynicism
and useless language
you know, all those things we say instead of what we mean

there you go again
laughing at real life
I guess that’s the way things will always be
