lyrics

HELLO MIDDLE AGE
I SAW YOU COMING FROM AFAR
A CARDIGAN OF COMPROMISE
WITH BUTTONS OF UNNATURAL SIZE
WELCOME MIDDLE AGE
THE HOMEOPATHY OF RAGE
DRAIN THE COLOUR FROM MY SKIN
LET DEFEAT COME MARCHING IN

I EMBRACE MIDDLE AGE
SURRENDER’S CLOAK A NUMBING VEIL
THE PISS OF FAILURE TO THE FLAME
THE SLEEPING BAG OF BITTER SHAME
TAKE ME NOW MIDDLE AGE
THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU KNOW
I WALK THE MILE BUT NOT AS FAR
AS YOUNGER LEGS WOULD CHOOSE TO GO

MIDDLE AGED
EGGBOUND
INFIRM
UNSOUND
I AM QUITE CONTENT
TO BE LEFT BEHIND
NOTHING LEFT TO ADD
TO WHAT’S BEEN SAID A MILLION TIMES

COME HOME MIDDLE AGE
THE RASPING FANFARE OF DECAY
I’M EDGELESS, LARDY, OBSOLETE
THE DANCING BEATEN FROM MY FEET
MARCH ON MIDDLE AGE
THE DEADLY TURNING OF THE PAGE
A MUG OF COCOA, THEN THE ABYSS
DROWN FOREVER IN MY OWN PISS

MIDDLE AGED
EGGBOUND
INFIRM
UNSOUND
TOO MUCH CHANGE
TOO MUCH CHOICE
I VOLUNTEER TO DISAPPEAR
DON’T WANT THE WORLD TO HEAR MY VOICE
