about

"Written when living opposite the YMCA and seeing what booze (and worse) was doing to its residents"

lyrics

The old man in your dreams
Tells a future you will see
About where you will go
And what you will be
But he's just a phantom of an imagination wild
He has no place in this space and time

What is a thought but the key to a cage?
What are drugs but the rivers to erode you away?

Blinded by guidance
Pretentious messiahs
Preach from their high street plateau
So just burn your obsessions
Or be naked and alone
Wearing opinions that you never owned

What is a thought but the key to a cage?
What are drugs but the rivers to wash you away?
What is a thought but the key to a cage?
What are drugs but the rivers to erode you away?

The drones are washing themselves of themselves
With smoke that just leaves a stain on their minds
The queen never says she will lock you away
In a hive hotel for castaways
Away...
