Preyed Upon (Tikaram Tanita)

When your life has all been token And your stance is akin to broken hearts You've grown weary - I'm not weary I can take your part It's eye-open time, sailor When they want you to pretend You were inside that playground You may be old - but not so old That I can't see See your old freinds and it's as fresh as dew But see what's new and it's all the same to you Now I'm not choosy and I'm just half grown I took the old man - I gave the old man I took the old man back home Safe with us to serenade To hang around your black scarf and black ways I have "no idea" he said, "no idea of what I'll do" And talking less - it chases home It chases dreams - but I have really no reason, no goal and so If you "want to" play real basic If you "want to" help us make it Don't forget you're alone Unless it's all alone Don't forget you're alone Unless it's all alone You get preyed upon Ohh oh I need to complicate you To make you hate the things you might have done And come out into the morning It's the sun you want Not the foreign time
