citizen fish – face off-youth lyrics


[face off]
lots of them
you know there’s lots of them
there’s reasons
everyday changes my mind like the seasons
i’m asking for answers
i’m looking in mirrors
ripples in rivers
face just drifting away, away

where’s the reasoning?
yes and no are neither good enough
gimme some of that, gimme some of that, gimme some of that, spontaneity stuff
blink before you think too hard
saw your smile in a p-ssing car

borrowed your pen
i wanna write like you do again and again and again and again
riots in the uniform of peace
coupla big ones up your sleeve

ten to nine and it’s shut down the factory
pull up the floorboards and build a bonfire
having a party in your head
sniff this greezer! and go to bed!

turned off the light
stayed up all night
blown to bits!
shrivelled up opened out and exploded
where he usually sits

go to it youth
discover the truth
don’t bottle it up
cos it’s 99% proof

no no it’s not how old you are
not the blushing brides and the propped up bar
after the bells have rung
and the next perspective has begun

not the corner of some foreign field
not the name engraved on stainless steel
not the thank you note for inventing the wheel
but an innocence dressed in knowing too much
never scared to theorise but half scared to touch
but rejecting the world that made it such

oh to be as youthful as i am
oh to be as manic as you are
oh to be as worried in our happiness
but never will we be so near
yet look so far
be so near
yet look so far
yet look so far

beyond the social att-tudes
that narrow the path and distort the view
complacency defies energy
and the other way round

we grow as fast as time is slow
we grow as fast as time is slow
we grow as fast as time is slow
enough to keep our head to the ground
for youthfulness is a louder sound
than age – that turning of the page – can make
a forced resemblance of getting old
left the majority feeling cold
forgot that energy never gets old
we grow with what we’ll always know
and feel the sense of experience
experience – youth, youth
experience – youth, youth
experience – youth
