​Growing Old

This song is by October 31 and appears on the album Bury The Hatchet (2014).

Fakes and posers everywhere
A spade is still a spade
In an honest world the blind man rules and
The wizard is defaced
Yet down the line some fall apart and
Slip into the void
That heart of gold it turns to black and
Truth just fades away

And it's all been growing old
These vicious pacts of empty lies
So many sell their souls
To ruin themselves and upset lives

Yes it's long been growing old
This spinning circle carousel
When you look with pure steady eyes
You'll see its long grown old

Take a look and see them all
Just lined up in a row
False pretenses greedy pigs
Welcome to their show
Phony handshakes bullshit schmooze
Invite their cutthroat ways
As ego posers stroke themselves
Another gold heart falls

And it's all been growing old
These vicious pacts of empty lies
So many sell their souls
To ruin themselves and upset lives

Yes, it's all been growing old
This spinning circle carousel
But I'll call you out erase your world and
Put you in your place

You, the lying fool
The wolf that's come to bite
With deviance in your eyes
You'll set your time to strike
And as you mark your easy prey and
Begin your selfish ways
I can't wait to be the one to end your reign

I'm watching you and despising you
With all I have inside
Stand and fight it's all over now
I'll wait for you to make your move and
I will justify what's only right
So stand and fight
I'm watching you
Despising you
And I'll get to you
Yes I will!

Watch the losers crash and burn
When their reign has past them by
All alone snug to fit
Down in the losers deck
Looking back to what they were and
What it means to me
With no remorse I watch them
Fade into obscurity

And it's all been growing old
These vicious pact of empty lies
So many sell their souls
To ruin themselves and upset lives
Yes it's long been growing old
This spinning circle carousel
When you look with pure steady eyes
You'll see its long grown old
Growing old
I'll call you out and erase your world
Growing old!
