The Ballad Of Stupid Kid

from by We Used To Exist

lyrics

say a prayer for the midnight rose
say a prayer but don't get your hopes up
and lift a glass for the old time gentleman before he disappears
maybe we could learn a thing or two from all those years

sittin' all alone
watchin' my hour glass runnin'
sittin' all alone
watchin' my hour glass runnin' low
i'm tryin' hard to forget one thing and start
another road that leads to you
because i'm just getting sick of

that kind of stuff
i had enough of talking faces
not up to scruff
i've had enough of the human races
i've had too much of 'you're just not good enough boy'
well, it's good enough for me

and rickie don't mind, rickie don't care what she do
cigarettes at the club on 2nd avenue
oh she's a star, she's got it all
but rickie don't know that she'll die at 32

and at the start of the 21st century
i've got a bit of a problem
all the wisdom's died, all the wisdom dies
and the sense gained with years is replaced
by naive angry children
all the wisdom's gone
the cycle moves on and on and on

protest anything
hot and sexy cola can
plagiarized point of view
don't wanna be another stupid kid

and at the start of the 21st century
i've got a bit of a problem
all the wisdom's died all wisdom dies
and the sense gained with years is replaced
by naive angry children
all the wisdom's gone
the cycle moves on and on and on

protest anything
hot and sexy cola can
plagiarized point of view
don't wanna be another stupid kid

protest anything (you ruin everything)
hot and sexy cola can (you ruin everything)
plagiarize my point of view (you ruin everything)
don't wanna be another stupid kid (you ruin everything)

about

We Used To Exist Berlin, Germany

Two peeps, three continents, too much time, not enough money... years of opposites. Hearts broken then repaired, hopes lost then found, albums kept in the cupboard and then finally released. My advice?

When the time is right you can breath. It's ok. Go on instinct. But know this...

Death is totally inappropriate. And besides, it makes you look pale.
