Your Shining Past

June 9, 2018

Life keeps coming at you
   Pretty fast
You’re safer with your head
   Outside your ass
As long as blood is flowing
   In your veins
There’s time to live the days
   That still remain
Step in the arena
   Every day
And live each precious minute
   Come what may

The world is moving way too fast
To talk and talk about your past
Gotta keep it moving
Got no time to sip your tea
Telling stupid stories
About the way it used to be

Don’t wanna hear how
   You were really cool
In the spring
   Of 1982
You hit the shot that
   Won the local game
A bunch of other people
   Knew your name
Talking bout your
   Meager ancient fame
Is silly, lazy, stupid
   Sad and lame

The world is moving way too fast
To talk and talk about your past
Gotta keep it moving
Got no time to sip your tea
Telling stupid stories
About the way it used to be
