Young and Dumb

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z. Hanson)
A cool 80s vibe, a story from a man who has seen a few things and understands if time results in being old and numb he would rather be young and dumb. "Animal Instincts" blog 5/11/18
Lead Singer: Taylor



I pursued happiness
A tapestry of flourescent bliss
But I'm dying on the vine

Don't recognize the view from here
A poor reflection in the rearview mirror
Of my own design

Every day is moving faster
Wanna hide from the disaster
But I'm a prisoner of my time

I'd rather be young and dumb
Surrounded by the possibility
Don't want to be old and numb
Wanna tell myself a lie I can believe
I wanna be young and dumb

I tried living in the ivory tower
Held down three jobs at ten an hour
Just to get into hte door

Been a hero and a deadbeat
A pencil pusher and a peice of meat
Wish I could forget what I know

And when my eyes ar eclear
I see good intentions are a cheap veneer
For every evil justified

I'd rather be young and dumb
Surrounded by the possibility
Don't want ot be old and numb
Wanna tell myself a lie
Wanna tell myself
I'd rather be young
And dumb

It's hard enough
To know it's not enough to know better
If these aching bones
And these jagged stones go together
Well I'd rather be young

Ashes to ashes
We all end up in a casket
Guess I'm fighting for my life

I'd rather be young and dumb
Surrounded by the possibility
Don't want to be old and numb
Wanna tell myself a lie
Wanna tell myself
I'd rather be young and dumb
