Dead! - Youth Screams & Fades Lyrics




Youth screams and fades in the back of a child's eye
A lonely old wise guy
These days are stealing away
Find similar minds, coupled with fights
Oh mechanic cut the brakes

And you will become part of a role
Imperfectly balanced but perfectly whole
And you will hate art
And say it's a drag
Oh, you will love routine
Oh, you are going mad

You can't diagnose what works but know that
But it does, it does, it does
You never know when to let go
Of the buzz, the buzz, the buzz
The older you get
The lesser you love
The word becomes a question
It becomes a bluff
You'll play these old rock songs to death
You'll be cast aside but you'll be more adept
At cutting through these cable ties
Deep in my wrists
My hands behind

We won't go quite or come gracefully
It's been a long time coming
Ain't it funny to see?
Youth screams and fades decays over time
There's nothing left but you in my mind

Scratch away the photo on your I.D. page
This is not who you know
This is but a strange limbo place that you frequent
This is not supposed to make sense
(This is really not supposed to make sense)

This limbo place that you frequent
This is not supposed to make sense
This limbo place that you frequent
This is not supposed to make sense
This limbo place that you frequent
This is not supposed to make sense

(I think it's important to mention at the end of this chapter
This is not a hindsight
This not a mirror at 1am
This is not a soliloquy from a back room play
This is not a bench on a public walkway
This is not a defining moment
This is)

We won't go quite or come gracefully
It's been a long time coming
Ain't it funny to see?
Youth screams and fades decays over time
There's nothing left but you in my mind

So here we stand
7.4 billion people
Staring into the face of beautiful adversity
A flash bang in defiance of mortality
A rebellion
A surrender
Connected by wires but never more apart
The golden age of not even trying
Your last words but your first breath
You won't find your saviour on radio
But maybe somehow it'll make sense
And in a universe of infinite moments, you will never feel this way again
Want it
Scream for it
Here's a toast to everyone we've met
Every person
Every connection
Every conversation
Every moment with your doubts in the night
Every hand held
Every kiss shared
Every teenage romance
Every drunk phone call
Every mistake make
Every fight lost
Every hello
Every goodbye
Every cut
Every drug
Every touch
Every fuck
And now at the end

Fade to black
Cue title
Youth screams and fades
