The Old Days (2006)

Defying age at every step,
the decaying man took one great leap
and opened the treasure box
The jack in the box was long dead,
toy cars now rusted to oblivion.
Tears flowed from the man's eyes,
as he saw the dark and aged photograph.
Maybe he should've never opened this paradox,
the man was too late
Those blue skies only lasted 16 years.....

I'm sadly losing my mind and sinking deeper,
longing for days long gone,
We fought hard and got to the top
and stuck our flags in the ground
If only our flags were the same.
