lyrics

years long ago when you had danced
the world as it changed was so big all around you
man touched the moon and your eyes fell ablaze
the notion that time that it was moving without you there

The water is full in the fountain of youth
the fountain of youth

you built for yourself many kingdoms
you labored in vain for the cup of approval
but the masses at large you know they'll always expect
and the pressure it brought you to executive ruin there
the water runs scarce in the fountain of youth
the fountain of youth


the hour ticks fast and your heart beats in unison
your strength fading quickly, your memory allusive
ashes to ashes,and dust to the dust your departure draws near
and we all fall down, yes we all fall down

The fountain of youth is soon to be through
the fountain of youth

You measure your life from the roof to the mezzanine
weighing the times you had wasted in apathy
your soul was displeased for your life was afloat
You spent all your time climbing up all the ropes
that kept you in check all alone with the Joneses
you stand in your flesh like a pile of bones
The skyscraper stands tall above all your cities
as you die in your office, oh what a pity your through

The fountain of youth, the fountain is through, the fountain of youth
