2.1555 : 8/5/09 : Don’t Mention It (The Golden Age 100/100)

The numbers don’t wait for your good intentions
or your shining hour or your moment of truth
You get what you’re dealt all your honorable mentions
all of us getting slower getting long in the tooth
Don’t mention it don’t mention it
I’d rather stay obscure
keep toiling in anonymity
Maybe someday I’ll be sure
However hard I tried I couldn’t master the popular tone
Maybe life’s gotten too easy short on crisis and shock
Maybe I’m just too wordy all that talking to myself alone
Too much self-evaluation too much taking stock
Don’t mention it don’t mention it
I’d rather stay obscure
keep toiling in anonymity
Maybe someday I’ll be sure
Don’t mention it don’t mention it
I’d rather stay obscure
keep toiling in anonymity
Maybe someday I’ll be sure
Don’t mention it don’t mention it
I’d rather stay obscure
keep toiling in anonymity
Maybe someday I’ll be sure
