SMASHING PUMPKINS - 1979 Lyrics

Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the timeOn a live wire right up off the streetYou and I should meetJunebug skipping like a stoneWith the headlights pointed at the dawnWe were sure we'd never see an end to it allAnd I don't even care to shake these zipper bluesAnd we don't knowJust where our bones will restTo dust I guessForgotten and absorbed into the earth belowDouble cross the vacant and the boredThey're not sure just what we have in the storeMorphine city slippin dues down to seeThat we don't even care as restless as we areWe feel the pull in the land of a thousand guiltsAnd poured cement, lamented and assuredTo the lights and towns belowFaster than the speed of soundFaster than we thought we'd go, beneath the sound of hopeJustine never knew the rules,Hung down with the freaks and the ghoulsNo apologies ever need be made, I know you better than you fake itTo see that we don't care to shake these zipper bluesAnd we don't know just where our bones will restTo dust I guessForgotten and absorbed into the earth belowThe street heats the urgency of soundAs you can see there's no one around
