The Silent Age

from Down to My Last Million by Ghost Atlantic

/

lyrics

We may have seen the end
A fading golden age
But we’re still breathing
The men who grew so old
Claim they had the best
Now I’m not so sure
Figures dressed in black
Lined up in a row
Waiting for their turn
(Skin and bones and fat with promise)

I’m not saying that it's too late to change
In the end we might begin again
Eye to eye has never really been our way
Suddenly no one’s funny anymore

We find ourselves alive
In a safe and silent age
Yet we’re all screaming
The gears are tightly wound
Now they run in reverse
Time worn thin by fear
Candles line the hallway
Dancing wild in your wake
Lights have burned out again
(Skin and bones and fat with promise)

I’m not saying that it's too late to change
In the end we might begin again
Eye to eye has never been our way
Suddenly no one’s funny anymore

Are you the fish?
Are you the fish?
Are you the fish or are you the water?
Are you the fish?
Are you the fish?
Are you the fish or are you the water?
(How did we ever get this old?)

We talk of rebellious ways
They’ll say we’re the enemy
Like any good accident
You can’t turn your head away
