lyrics

It's 1987
I'm laying on my bedroom floor
The Choir in the tape deck…
"Sad Face" ?
Yeah, I'm into it…

Not going out tonite
It's nothing new, but that's alright
My friends are down at the Amber Light
It's not my scene: I'm too uptight

Gather those rosebuds while ye may
Soon we'll be sleepwalking
in the bright light of the Day

*Just give me distortion
i need the closure
just write me a letter
I need the clever
things that you say
in order to come up with the next line

25 years into the future
MCMLXXXVII
25 years away
Now we dance through the night
and we sleep all day

Some Disney Girl shakes her backside
and the masses sway
What happened to our future?
Was Johnny right?
Is there no future?

*Just give me distortion
i need the closure
just write me a letter
I need the clever
things that you say
in order to come up with the next line

Adolescent Apocalypse
no one grows old
but no one ever lives
the dead walk the earth with their plastic hips
but they can shake those hips

Can they shake those hips?

Teenage Apocalypse
MCMLXXXVII
Teenage Apocalypse
You can't stay "forever young"
Someday we're all gonna die!

*Just give me distortion
i need the closure
just write me a letter
I need the clever
things that you say
in order to come up with the next line

The Song "Sad Face" is from The Choir's album "Chase the Kangaroo"

The "Amber Light" is a fictional representation of the clubs that my friends frequented during our high school days; an activity in which I was too cowardly (and wise) to participate.

"Johnny" is Johnny Rotten (John Lydon) of the Sex Pistols and P.I.L.

"Forever Young" is a reference to the band Alphaville and the song by the same name

"Disney Girl" is both a reference to the song "Disney Girls" by the Beach Boys and those girls (and boys) who start out as innocent child actors and are eventually corrupted and deformed by the the entertainment industry
