    back back back in the back of your mind
    are you learning an angry language,
    tell me boy boy boy are you tending to your joy
    or are you just letting it vanquish
    back back back in the dark of your mind
    where the eyes of your demons are gleamin
    are you mad mad mad
    about the life you never had
    even when you are dreaming.

    who are these old old people
    in these nursing homes
    scowling away at nothing
    like big rag dolls just cursing at the walls
    and pulling out all of their stuffing
    every day is a door leading back to the core
    yes, old age will distill you
    and if you're this this this full of bitterness now
    some day it will just fill you

    when you sit right down in the middle of yourself
    you're gonna wanna have a comfortable chair
    so renovate your soul before you get too old
    cuz you'r egonna be housebound there
    when you're old you fold up like an envelope
    and you mail yourself right inside
    and there's nowhere to go
    except out real slow
    are you ready, boy, for that ride?

    your arrogance is gaining on you
    and so is eternity
    you better practice happiness
    you better practice humility
    you took the air, you took the time
    you were fed and you were free
    now you'd better put some beauty back
    while you got the energy
    you'd better put some beauty back, boy
    while you got the energy
