Taxpayer – When They Were Young lyrics

It's too late, lock up the patrons
Stumbling down a crowded staircase
Look at that guy dressed to the nines
Always failed today, it's painted on his face

Past that face stands a young professional
Man with his girl propped up against a wall
Planning to make this the great night
And polish off a glass of red wine

Oh my God, is this how we spend it?
We could expire, is life so defended?
Are we too late? Are we too late?
I wouldn't know

Lonesome gaze extends from a pair of
Well-crafted eyes belonging to a girl that
Never looked back since she was burned
By a lad who never fully matured

She observes a tall slender girl with a
Man on each arm, caught in a corner
Wondering which guy should come home
Oh, they both can't wait, oh, they can't wait

Oh my God, is this how we spend it?
We could expire, is life so defended?
Are we too late? Are we too late?
I wouldn't know, I'm quite okay

Oh my God, is this how we spend it?
We could expire, is life so defended?
Are we too late? Are we too late?
I wouldn't know, I'm quite okay

I wait and watch as people segregate
Themselves apart from all
The ones that gave them all bad complex
When they were young

Oh my God, is this how we spend it?
We could expire, is life so defended?
Are we too late? Are we too late?
I wouldn't know, I'm quite okay

Oh my God, is this how we spend it?
We could expire, is life so defended?
Are we too late? Are we too late?
I wouldn't know, I'm quite okay

I wait and watch as people segregate
Themselves apart from all
The ones that gave them all bad complex
When they were young

I wait and watch as people segregate
Themselves apart from all
The ones that gave them all bad complex
When they were young
