lyrics

Smoke my cigarettes in the morning time
Watch the news
Watch the blue smoke rise
What's on the news

Have we all grown up
Are we all big and old and well informed
And off to vote for so and so
Have you heard what they have said about these things

Now college is finished and good riddance
But I am still scratching my spinning head
Wondering

Who was important in the books that I read
And who were my friends and do I have any left
In the flesh, made of voice, out of frame
More than names and updates to peek upon

And I wish I had some brothers to help me to keep
Keep it all together, I can't hardly think
When I was younger my dreams were to conquer

Now I seem to simply be just sitting through the day
I miss the reckless racket that we used to make
The shine of wine aglow in burning couches howling out its January

Our blood a coursing fire defiant against the flow of time, a moment
in a single soul the instant of a memory, a memory

Where I'm floating on a river
I can't hear a thing but wind between the emerald leaves and I'm a
weightless angel underneath the opal clouds inlaid in baby blue
And here there is no night or me or you

But I wish I had some brothers to help me to keep
Keep it all together, I can't hardly think
When I was younger my dreams were to conquer
Had I some brothers to help me to keep
Keep it all together, perhaps I could think
When I was younger my dreams were to conquer
