Originally written for the canceled FKCN EP "Social Systems."

lyrics

You once told me that when this is finished
We'll look back sadly and wish for it back
This part of our lives, quickly fading though it is
Could be the best that we've had

So let's have one more drink before the show is over
Live these days now before we're untenably older
To never wondering what could be if we were bolder
To seizing every last day

I sat in your backyard
Alone with my beer as the party raged inside
I thought a while about joining the festivities
Instead I just asked for a ride
I'm old enough to know that partying doesn't help
Even when I see my friends happy and glad
You might say that I should be in no rush to grow up
Too late, I already have

I should have seen so far in advance
That this spendthrift lifestyle doesn't stand a chance
When old friends don't come by as often as they did
Maybe there's a reason for that
For all of the accolades that I have earned
I still can't please everybody in this world
When the road is narrow and they force you to take a side
It's the realization that the days have already died

And in me was the unfulfillable hunger
To go back to the times back when we was younger
But for all of the times when you try to stand tall
All you can do is nothing at all

You once told me that when this is finished
We'll look back sadly and wish for it back
As far as I'm concerned, those days are done now
And I only wish to see them fade black
