Carry On – What Once Was lyrics

Looking at a faded photo of what once was - it's harder
To believe there was so much pride - and honesty in what
You wrote - you're making a comeback ten years later -
What should I think - you want our money - fuck you, man
- you ain't getting it from me - you're up on a stage
Without a clue - why can't you find something better to
Do - I look in your eyes and wonder what to think - your
Words don't seem true to me - what did you do with all

That time - where did you think you'd be now - I know you
Think you've got everyone fooled - but there's still a
Lot of kids that can see right through - you fed a fire
So long ago - but you forgot the feeling it gave you -
You put to words the way we felt - you gave us so much
More - now it's time you see what we have - we built this
All ourselves - it's all our effort - it's all our blood
- these feelings will never fade
