Six years from now
All our luck will have run out
And it’s not that great
As it is

But there is a pill
For those who are living still
To transport our minds
Back to happier times

Back to all those years I wasted
On the outside looking in
Well, I never had the health to ruin myself
Nor the courage to dabble in sin

Six years ago
Is the farthest they can throw
All our sleeping minds
Without damage

And six years ago
Is the last time that I know
When the world was clean
And green

And I’ll watch myself out walking
Unaware of what will come
No compulsion to derive all I could out of life
Just contented to wander and roam

There’s nothing here
Nothing in the present year
To persuade my mind
To hold on

But just for a while
Won’t you stay with me and smile
‘til the clouds roll in
And I’m gone

And I lacked the drive to let go
And the strength to just give in
And I never had the health to ruin myself
Nor the courage to dabble in sin

No I never had the pride to let myself slide
And now I never will.
