lyrics

Without your veins old man
the pulse of youth throbs with no ardour.
Your eyes full of rheum have against
beauty closed their filmy doors...
and your clogged ears have shut you
from the music of the world
you talk of love! You know not what it is.

Oh in my time boy I have walked the moon
I’ve lived on kisses, swore I’d die for you
wrote bad love verses and I sang them too
but you do well to talk, that’s all you do.

You made your bed old man, 
a life of lies, governed by charisma
Compartmentalize, to achieve, 
your place waiting, on the throne woahaoah... 
Diplomatic ways, surely pay, 
for the rent of your superman status.
You change your words! You make them pretty.

Oh in my time boy I have walked the moon
I’ve lived on kisses, swore I’d die for you
wrote bad love verses and I sang them too
but you do well to talk, that’s all you do.

You broke my heart and ran away with it
You broke my heart and ran away!
You broke my heart and ran away with it
You broke my heart and ran away!

I loved your veins old man
I loved, everything about you 
but good people go, sell their soul,  
end up all alone woah...
I saw inside, you were alive, 
once upon a sweet sweet time 
I’m sad to say: Good-bye.

Cause in our time boy we sure walked the moon
We lived on kisses, and I died for you
wrote bad love verses and we sang ‘em too
you do well to talk, that’s all you 
oh in our time boy we sure walked the moon
We lived on kisses, and I died for you
wrote bad love verses and we sang ‘em too
but you do well to talk, that’s all you do.
