lyrics

You have worn out your stay
And oh what a heavy price to pay
You pulled yourself from the dark
From your world of loneliness apart

Now I'm crying aloud
From what I've found
Chew it up, spit it out on the floor
Until everyone thinks like you

No use being alone
Bury your face in the phone
Now that you are all grown
You'll spend your last days alone

Old will clash with the young
And times will pass when they're done
You take the world as it comes
And pass it off as your own

Now I'm crying aloud
From what I've found
Chew it up, spit it out on the floor
Until everyone thinks like you

No use being alone
Bury your face in the phone
Now that you are all grown
You'll spend your last days alone

When you feel like no one else can bring you down, down, down
You'll soon feel what it's like when I'm not around, round, round, round, round

Goodnight, go home gramps
Oh goodnight, go home gramps
Goodnight, go home gramps
Oh goodnight, get lost gramps!
