“It’s been a long time, which agrees with this watch of mine.” Really that would be the only part of the song that reminds me of my old friends from high school and 5 years of after high school. We did some crazy stuff together but we were kids longer than the coming of age novels would allow us to. It’s not like there wasn’t anyone there to catch us at the bottom of the cliff that held blinding reeds that were just too tall for us to see the drop point. It was more like we tricked ourselves by discovering the divide and decided to linger longer in the chaos of our youth. And then what happens when you hit 25 – you are a fucking confused mess. You realize that so much time has passed and that during your adolescent absence you didn’t even recognize anymore who that person portraying yourself in some kitschy play that would die out in history in a quiet fizzle (without the following pop… not even like the fizzle pop candies that rot your teeth out). What the hell were we doing, trying to live without consequence for as long as possible? That shit catches up with you.
Apologies in advance for run on sentences… 😉
