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
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.
