  • And I'm living too late
    Try to wash the black off my face, but it's ingrained
    And I'm living too late

    Sleepless, in-control spleen
    Agreed ace family
    Must have stump tripod in the genes
    I'm immune to things
    In my dreams

    I saw through the trees
    O'er the poison river locks
    Talk treacherous would beat
    But still my heart it is rock

    Finally going through old parasite gate
    But there's a 24-hour clock watch
    And I'm living too late

    Sometimes life is like a new bar
    Plastic seats, beer below par
    Food with no taste, music grates
    I'm living too late

    Once talking was my favourite while
    But now I know a conversation's end
    Before it's done
    Maybe I'm living too long

    The daylight

    I see trouble on the streets
    Fearing catastrophe to meet
    Walk down the devil's boulevard
    But still my heart is hard

    They say them cellars [were't even/were evil] black
    But I know they're wrong
    Think it's one
    Living Too Long

    [extra verses on Living Too Long:

    Eyes like two TV screens
    Continual open
    Feel no pain
    I live again

    I'm super sad sweet sad
    Line is cracked
    Vision gone
    I'm living too long]
