Back in the day you say you had it made
Hanging out all night and getting laid
All the colours had shown brighter
And your heart was so much lighter
Back in the day you say things weren't so lame
Now everybody seems to be the same
There's nothing happy here
And I don't think you're thinking clear

Your attitude is self-defeating
Your history's not worth repeating
Your life was just as lame back then
As you say it is now
Your rose coloured glasses deceive you
Reminisce all night
I'm not listerning to you
Cause 5 years from now will be the same old story anyhow

Back in they day you were a whiney little fuck
You hated the whole world for your bad luck
Your situation sucked you didn't change it
Now you tell a story but you rearrange it
Back in the day your rut wasn't so deep
That is the memory that you choose to keep
As you grow older it gets deeper
Try to climb out but the walls are steeper

Your attitude is self-defeating
Your history's not worth repeating
Your life was just as lame back then
As you say it is now
Your rose coloured glasses deceive you
Reminisce all night
I'm not listerning to you
Cause 5 years from now will be the same old story anyhow

You've got a life to live right now
You've got a self to build somehow
Trying to avoid the future?
Are you just afraid of failure?
I won't listern to your stories when
I see you've been killing time again
Your attitude is self-defeating
Your history's not worth repeating
