It's way past my time and I should be moving on

though moving on for me is slow

For others it didn't take that long

I guess they knew just when to go.

We all talked about our future

in a different time and place

But when you mix it up in a juicer

it looks the same on every face.

Why there ain't no flying cars

or a tourist ship on it's way to Mars

and there ain't no cure all pills

to wipe away the tears

or take way our ills

Yeah this old town still looks the same

as it did in the days of old steam trains.

We're just getting older with a mind that's behind the times

forgetting to remember just who you are

But you tell me that it's fine

as you leave this town in our car.

I suppose we had no future

it's a different time and place

But when you mix it up in a juicer

it looks the same on every face.

Why there ain't no flying cars

or a tourist ship on it's way to Mars

and there ain't no cure all pills

to wipe away the tears

or take way our ills

Yeah this old town still looks the same

as it did in the days of old steam trains.

It's way past my time and I should be moving on

though moving on for me is slow

For others it didn't take that long

I guess they knew just when to go.
