lyrics

We look at youth and we see potential
Just what will be
All the promise – it is promised
And it will be

But then we turn to look at the aged
See what we see?
All the words they have not kept to
We all can see

And even when we look in the mirror
That warped and dirty mirror
The sands of time
They chafe in our trousers

Well she's a woman bearing the battle
Across her knees
And I'm a man wearing the saddle
Of prophecies

Her jawbone does not line up
There's not enough slack
And my life is a soft shoe paddle
In a hardwood shack

And even when we look in the mirror
That warped and dirty mirror
The sands of time
They chafe in our trousers

Ten mountains might not move us an inch
But seven could – yeah seven certainly could
We went swimming in the pool of a palace one time
We left mud on the ground
But better not better not pay too much attention
Or the clamor might push you around

We look at youth and we see potential
Just what will be
All the promise – it is promised
And it will be

But then we turn to look at the aged
See what we see?
All the words they have not kept to
We all can see
