This spirit is holding us down,
Pushing our shoulders in deep.
Pulling us through the lines,
Toasting our backs in the sun.
And I'm waiting to hear my next call,
We got all our ears pressed against the wall.
But now our gaze is set straight,
We're seeing it all eye to eye.
The balance is still chasing after,
Just hanging on as we walk by.
And they say it's only natural,
They say we're coming along just fine.
But I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
And I know, I know this won't last, a second longer than it has.
Children you will be cared for at once,
Warmed in our arms like promises plucked from above.
This world is only getting smaller,
The choices aren't ours to be made.
I'm into wasting my days,
I feel like wasting my days.
And I see what's coming on,
And I can't say it will all be fine.
And I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
No I can't help thinking we grew up too fast
And I know, I know, I know this won't last, a second longer than it has.
