On the trembling lips of age
Fifteen years have gone, I sing the same
While the words have slowed their rumbling
I'd prefer you forgot my name
And let me walk alone
And let me swallow whole
All that children whisper when they fall in love
Dragging father's dream
Through a sea of rye and gasoline
Mother smiles most all the time
But I think I heard her when I heard her scream
"Our boy is coming back. Our boy is coming home"
"Our boy is wasted on a magazine"
Chasing boyhood kings
While dodging wild pendulum swings
Darker angels remind me that I am destined for
The darkest things
So don't forget my name
And don't forget my voice
Don't forget the golden boy who loved to sing
I played a bit too hard, now I want to back out
I'd love to look the part, just let me back out
