The Young Idealists
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


I know I said I favoured peaceful resolution
But that was when we were the young idealists

The Young Idealists
Raging through the coffee shops and bars
Make believe the world was really ours
Still supposing we could make a difference

Then we bought into the neocon economic dream
And we were trading in futures we believed in

The Young Idealists
Careering through the markets to the Mall
Venturing that we could have it all
Still supposing we could make a difference

And then the markets fall
And the heavens open
And there's no synergy at all
The synergy is broken

So maybe now I'd take that wholesale revolution
We were talking about
Maybe now I'd take a future we can breathe in

The Young Idealists
Raging through the forests and the streams
Breaking into your laboratories
Still supposing we could make a difference

I never dreamed I'd want a slogan on my people moving
But that was when we were the young idealists

Probably the same reason more people eat off the $1 menu than organic, fresh, finely cooked cuisines. Crap (or at least processed junk) is more accessible, cheaper and is a quick fix for a comfort need. Doesn't take thought, searching or the time to marinate. Don't get me wrong, I like a good bubble gum pop song like the next person. Just not for a steady diet. Give me some Lloyd Cole any day :)
