What Happens Now

This song is by Kitchens of Distinction and appears on the album The Death of Cool (1992).

Draw me something,
Draw the line
Connecting what we did to what happens now.
I don't understand how we changed
Not sure I'll ever know.
It's all circles, colliding spheres,
I closed off, chaos appears.

Once we were all smiles and plans,
And dressing up to go
Playing outside playing cars,
Now it's all been tamed, I yell
"Don't stop! Don't leave me here!
Don't stop. Won't get caught again.
You can't go. There's no sense anymore."
A tap of tears and a veil of guilt
Taunt me now.
Growing growing growing gone,
Years pick up speed again.
****

Throw me pointers,
No more jibes.
There's this ancient knot inside my chest.
It works it's way into my throat.
Will not let these stories out.
Refusal works, it always wins,
Too much thought, too few grins

****
****

Free you say, free to roam,
But down below
Father, Mother, always guiding,
Pointing out a world I refuse to know.
Don't Stop!,
Say it's all OK.
You say, "Where's the ache of freedom?
Where's the devil's whispers?
This is the sweetest pain,
Run and run and run and run.
Jump up as far as you can, shake your head
And breathe."
