What Happened to them Days?

Looking back I remember when I couldn't wait to grow up

Now I'm looking in the mirror all grown up

What happened to them days on the monkey bars

Riding bikes trying to keep up with cars

Dreaming one day we would be celebrities

Living life young and innocently

Wasn't thirsty for intercourse but thirsty for that cool-aid

Crazy how too much sugar could make a kid misbehave

Now cool-aid has turned to alchol

God how stress has consumed us all

What happened to them days that we thought would last forver

Thought they never die

Is that why they say "never say never"?

Now the closest of friends become distant

Then they become enemies

Why is this?

Why all the hostility?

Remember when everything was resolved with compromise

Now all confrontations are fist fights

Or ends up with a barrel between the eyes

As blowpops turn to blunts

As toys turn to guns

As sex is easier to get and love is harder to find

Them memories will never escape the hollows of my mind

Though if I had one wish...

I wish the 90's was where I lived

But what happened to them days?

What happened to them days?
