lyrics

You caught the bug at 17
And you never looked back
Under the curse of anonymity
Here’s to hoping it’ll pass

You’re well beyond the age of persuasion
You promised you wouldn’t be long

You’re nowhere near here
Nowhere near here

I nailed the brakes into the floor
That’s a metaphor my dear
I never had your kind of will
Or satisfaction through the years

You’re well beyond the age of contention
You promised you wouldn’t take long

You’re nowhere near here
Nowhere near here

I save my prayers for desperation
I split my lip in concentration
I know my Latin like the setting sun

The crust of hope that used to be
The rotting stench of liberty
I can’t say I prefer either one

Lay down your legend gracefully
Lay down your broken crown
You can’t rely on pedigree
You have to face up to the now

You’re well beyond the age of persuasion
You promised you wouldn’t be long

You’re nowhere near here
Nowhere near here
