When The Practical World Tries To Pull Your Wildest Dreams Down To Earth


As the slingshot of life
hurls you through long days,
and the practical world
tries to pull your wildest
dreams down to earth,
and smog-filled skies
cloud your imagination,
and digital screens
steal your precious time,
and the pace of the city
blurs your vision,
and you can’t remember all
the lyrics to that Cure song
you used to sing all the time,
and the news of the day
makes you want to cry,
and your old Doc Marten boots
gather dust in your closet,
I hope you always remember
how you once didn’t give a #$*!
what people thought about you,
how the idea of fitting in was absurd,
how you used to recite Clash
and Ramones songs like scripture,
how you scrawled your neon dreams
in notebooks and on innocent walls,
how our generation was going to
give the tired old men the finger
and make the world a cooler place,
how you ran wild under the white hot stars,
how you laughed too loud,
how you loved too hard,
and how music set you free.
But most of all I hope you never forget
the punk rock in your soul.
