(Alex Solo) Automatic Youth

I’m just depressed -
Heaven, without you.

Crush your sweet ice,
You just too cool,
Diamonds and fear.

Automatic Youth,
My symptomatic haze,
I’m dead that way
(I guess I’m just dead that way),
Right on,
Automatic Youth,
My symptomatic haze,
I’m dead that way
(I guess I’m just dead that way).

But her heart has a spirit,
If you listen close you can hear it,
And it’s something more than when horny,
‘Cause you’re something like a discovery,
And it moves me like no other -
What a frailty to be discovered…

Rewind time…

I loved you…
Who am I kidding with the past tense -
Still love you in your absence.
Now our daughter asking
Why I was absent…
So when explaining why
To our smart kid
standing on top of the carcass
of a flaming lie,
tell her fame is why…
I was trying to be like a
Famous guy.

Came inside, baby’s mine
Laying beside you, the baby inside you
I was playing this guitar,
Zoom out, one year later
Gloom is rushing down her moon cheeks
Raining now.
Explaining why
I
Wasn’t around
Claiming I
Wasn’t a father to my daughter…
Painted lies
On my tainted hide -
I thought to tell her all she could point at was manifested from joints that I
Sang and by the way,
How’s that hot water, food and roof under that
Raining sky…
Shit, now I’m being an asshole in a castle - sorry
Lame was I -
Mainly I -
Just wanna be cool, trill, real family ties
On acid,
Laughing,
Sound good, hope it
Happen,
And for this angel, you to thank -
My 2 cents in the bank.
