Even if the good old days were good
Even if the old days were golden days 
Even if the good old days were good 
The past is a terrible place 
The past is a terrible place to live

Computer games 
Pretty faces
Loaded with life
Loaded with live ammunition 

Even if the good old days were good 
The past is a terrible place

Saving up for Pam 
Saving up for Naomi

Saving up for Mary
Saving up for Jane 
A thousand pieces all over the room
Let´s do it all again 
Icon therefore I am

Loaded with dreams
Loaded with life
I´m loaded with live ammunition 
Loaded with dreams
Loaded with stories
Loaded with life 

I only wish I knew you
How hard it is for me to spare
This kind of thing for you
If you sense a smokescreen here
A trick of dry ice 
A trick of the dry eyes
