    Wash away,
    All the lines on your face that show how you've aged
    It's a long way down-
    Your back's been broken you can't make the rounds
    The tables are turned as the litany goes...
    You're a rotten old man who'll be covered in dirt
    On your knees
    And pray to the maker that cause you the bleed

    Turn back the hands on the clock
    You're a bitter old man who's done nothing but work
    Your hands to the bone on assembly lines
    You've grown cold to the touch of the ones that you love
    Ignorance is something you can overcome
    But you've passed it on down and that's something much worse
    For a bitter young man...Is now taking the torch

    Silent scorn-
    You've taken it out on the ones you adore
    Incide rage-
    They've left you before but they'll come back again
    They'll pray for you with all their love
    But this time your indifference just can't be excused
    Forced armends-
    Well it's something you die with but it goes on for them


    ...For a bitter young man...Has now taken the torch...
