    Been eleven years since we've been forsaken
    I don't care about my education
    I'd rather be where my heart is achin' to be.
    I remember rows of eager faces
    Ecstatic minds in imagined places
    It seems so real I can almost taste it now.
    A hundred-thousand flocked together
    In the constant search for something better
    We'd summer after summer get away.
    And we danced until the music faded
    Even though the law forbade it
    Life was much less complicated then.
    Oh
    But life goes on.
    There was music in the parking lots
    And fighting for the closest spots
    "Take your fix, just don't get caught" they said.
    Throughout the nights we'd sing together
    It felt like it could last forever
    We journeyed on a never-ending road.
    We ran barefoot through the park
    But we made it to the show before it grew dark
    The fire we made burned brighter than the stars.
    Though the song remained throughout the ages
    We could feel the Earth was turning pages
    Everything was changing all too fast.
    Oh
    But life goes on.
    But the years went by and we grew older
    The seasons changed and the wind blew colder
    It seems like we were bolder long ago.
    There was a day the music ceased
    And the silence brought us to our knees
    The fog was laid too thick for us to see.
    So the cord was cut without a sound
    As our nation crumbled to the ground
    We lay scattered in the ruins all around.
    Because the storm had hit so fast
    The devastation stole our past
    And left us lost with no way to get back.
    Oh
    But life goes on.
    Now here we are over ten years later
    We've struggled and we've barely made it
    Remember all the beauty we'd create?
    For years we've bonded with eachother
    Shared fellowship with all our brothers
    I think that we can go another day.
    Oh
    Still life goes on.

    Well being British my media opinion would be snooty and stuffy but not today. I LIKED IT.

    Seems more like a poem than a song but it's cool.

    The only way that would be possible is with my sisters digital camera with video, but that really distorts your voice.
