We wrote these songs when we were young
When we still had some time to play
when we still had some things to say
we knew that sounds were only waves
we knew our little band would die

we thought we'd learn from our mistakes
but then we made them all again
and though our songs were words of change
we found our lives remained the same
as all our memories went by

and if you dont know the rules you cant really play the game
you wont win any prizes but its pointless to complain
about how the world keeps turning but the numbers on the days
remain the same
and if you've lost your mind well its no use looking here
and if you've lost your bottle you can only quake with fear
and if you lost your way home you might as well sit here
another 30 years

and each night the leaves fall down
and make a pattern on the ground where i'm lain
and in the morning the rain comes down
and makes a watery sound on my brain

and now were old but we still play
because we really cant explain
that crazy sound that is the drain
we know that sounds are made of waves
and this is just a wave goodbye
