Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
June bug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Double cross the vacant and the bored
They're not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin' dues, down to see

That we don't even care, as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it, to see

That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don't know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

The street heats the urgency of now
As you can see there's no one around

Zachary Kariotis it has enough likes. Funny but it has less because it’s a typical internet style meme which has been used man times over. Not original I guess but at least he’s doing it on a good song. Has some appreciation for good stuff I guess. Not my opinion but that is why and it’s honestly why. It’s used a lot on many things. Say the reverse of something. Tony hawk videos for example have the same thing. He does a 900 rotation when 48 and people say it’ll be insane when he does a 48 when 900 years old.

Why??! - I remember my those years being exactly like that except they got the "Don't do drugs" cup wrong! - That didn't come into existence until Nancy Reagan in the 80s.

My dad used to listen to this song when i was a kid and i loved it so he got me a cd and a little portable cd player. recently my dad killed hisself and its been so hard keeping my composure. this song just brought back so many memories and it hurts. i know people probably dont care but i just really needed to say it.
